The Backlog: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

With Skyrim I decided to take a different approach. Instead of putting 10 hours in and then adding a few mods here and there, I figured I should just mod it straight out of the gate. Before I even booted the game for the first time, I had a handful of modifications downloaded and installed. But then things started to get out of control. 10 mods became 20. 20 became 40. Soon I had nearly 80 mods installed, changing everything from the density of the grass to the speed arrows fly to granting my dragon-souled warrior the ability to call for his last horse. But it wasn’t until I installed the amazing rendition of The Dragonborn Comes by Malukah as the menu music that things started to go sideways (she also does a killer version of Misty Mountains from The Hobbit).

Our First Skyrim Weekend Commences

After several weeks of preparation and waiting for this release, I finally got to venture through Skyrim this past weekend. I just have to say that this game can quite possibly win the game of the year prize. So with popcorn and snacks plus a 24 pack of soda by my side, I ventured into this world and never looked back. And so our story begins.... Oops, sorry, wrong series. Well, that was awkward. Anyway, here's a peek of some Skyrim.
