Re: Why do people begin sentences with the word "and"?

Hasn't this been going on since the days of, oh, say, Gutenberg? "And thus spakest the Lord: 'Furthermore, thine flocks of sheep shalt never grazeth in yon pastures beyond the land of Nogebow, for there is where thou wouldst find womenfolks who are not smart, and menfolks who are not good-look...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I dreamed I was in a school dodgeball tournament, and it was down to me and another teammate on my side, and a seven-year old with no front teeth wearing a foam helmet on the other. The kid was whining that he can't play without this inflatable kiddie pool (without water) being on the court (it was ...

Re: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim : Dual Wield Bacon

So I picked up Skyrim for the PC yesterday (yay sale) and tried running it on the lowest settings, because I'm sure my computer can do that (and just that). However, I find that very quickly, the game begins to lag to a point where it becomes unplayable. I don't see why it would do such; I have enou...

Re: The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim : Dual Wield Bacon

Welp, Skyrim's on sale on Steam already. $40 from the usual $60. I think I may pick it up now for the PC, even if I can't play it.

Only for 24 hours though, so if you're interested, hop on it.

Welp.

I just finished the main quest with a dual wielding light armor warrior, and I decided to start a stealth character.

So much harder than in Oblivion. And I had to put it down for a while. I'm pretty excited to get good at it.

I've taken down 2 dragons by myself so far - each time I wait for it to land and dual cast firebolts at it until it takes off again. Once it's airborne I use fast healing to recover lost health and then repeat. So the point here is: It's impossible to kill dragons with a solely melee character. Fun...
