IntroductionWelcome to Let's Play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim!
Hi, I'm UZworm and I've only ever played one The Elder Scrolls game, and that's Skyrim. Even though I have been told many times that Oblivion or Morrowind are better games, I stick to my guns because I am:
1. Too broke to buy new video games,
2. A person who knows what he likes, a list that comprises only about 6 video games, and
3. A person who really loves Skyrim independent of anything else.
That's right. Its faults aside, Skyrim is one of my favorite games, and I've spent more hours in it than anyone probably ever should. (We don't want to hear about the games I've spent more on. ((They are mostly Football Manager games.))) Also, it's rare that I play a game I'm not one of the worst players in the world at, so that's refreshing! (Note: This does not mean I am great at Skyrim. I am merely not terrible at Skyrim.)
I have been in a coma for the past 7 years; what is Skyrim?
Skyrim is the fifth installment of The Elder Scrolls series. It was originally released in 2011 to solid reception thanks to its open-world gameplay, though I've noticed that the general opinion of it has soured a bit in the past few years among people I know. Maybe it's just me. In the game you play as the Dragonborn, imbued with the blood of a dragon and the powers of The Voice that come with it. You must use those powers to save the world from the evil "World-Eater" Dragon, Alduin.
Or, alternatively, you can tell the main quest to go fuck itself and just fuck around building a house or raiding random caves and keeps. Kill old ladies, get drunk, who gives a fuck? It's open world!
In October of this year, they're releasing a remastered version of it. If this LP is still going on by then, perhaps we'll be among the first to see the magic of the ~new snow shaders~ and ~volumetric god rays~!
What's the plan for this LP?
I plan on doing a straight run-through of the main quest of the game -- you know, that thing that you never completed despite playing 200 hours of the game yourself -- and then following it up with some other fun stuff. That might be mods, side-quests decided by whoever decides those things, perhaps murdering every single inhabitant of Skyrim... sky's the limit!
I might do the Dawnguard or Solstheim quests after just to keep things moderately on track before it devolves into utter chaos, but that's for time to decide. Let's murder us a dragon or two first!
What horrifying mods are you using?
None at the start. This will change after I've done the Main Quest, most likely, especially since I haven't really used many mods before even though I've played so much Skyrim. I'll be just as surprised as you are at some of that shit.
Shut up, Chitlin.
Who will be joining you?
The UZworm Zone holds many people, but the main crew is generally some mix of Highwang, Iron Chitlin, ElTipejoLoco, Killeremcee, Risen, TorpidTypist and Festivore joining me for my adventures.
Who is our intrepid Dragonborn?
I held a few Twitter polls to determine this! Based on those I was going to be a Khajiit Wizard until it was pointed out to me that plenty of Skyrim LPs end up with the person being a wizard, and also that magic in Skyrim is annoying as hell. So I kept the Furry vote (oy) and went with the second most popular option, Kitty Warrior. Meet Mr. Puffles.
He is a very good kitty.
Later on in the LP, we're also introduced to Mr. Puffles' more competent sister, Ms. Puffles.
She's also a very good kitty.
Yeah, general spoilers are okay in this thread; I'm not going to learn anything I don't already know about the game and I'm fairly sure everyone in my co-commentary pool except for Loco has played it too. Try to keep on basic track with where the LP is going, but don't worry about going a bit off-topic.
Do you KNOW me?
No, but seriously though, I'll be shooting to update this at least once a week sometime near the weekend. Twice a week if I'm feeling saucy!
Play your accord-
Stop with the goddamn Lady Gaga!
Why does the first video of the series look like pickled dog shit?
I'm an idiot who doesn't know how recording software works! The graphical quality of the videos improves immensely after the initial two videos.
The quality of the commentary I can't promise anything on, of course.
