The Wait For Skyrim: 5 Days

It's been an incredibly long time since I've last blogged. I've basically dropped off the face of the planet in many ways. University has consumed my life, although I still spend a ton of time browsing the web and gaming. Not much into the party scene at all anymore. I guess as you get older, the desire to participate in those activities slows down.

Let me get sidetracked on another topic once again. The launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is only footsteps away. I say this because I've been waiting for over 3 years for this game to be released. While I dabbled with Morrowind, I've excessively played Oblivion, amounting to over 1000 hours of gameplay throughout 15 different characters. To this day, I still listen to the soundtrack from both games regularly, and literally track every single piece of content Bethesda Game Studios has to release.

My interest in the Elder Scrolls caused my fascination with Bethesda Game Studios, and how creative the team really is. They bring life into the idea of living and breathing in another world. It's amazed me for 6 years now, and I have hopes of eventually becoming a part of Bethesda Softworks to contribute to what isn't just interactive media, but rather an experience that won't be forgotten in a lifetime.

Now that Skyrim is only 5 days away, I wanted to share one of my favorite songs in Gaming. The song is from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and it was created by Jeremy Soule. The song I'm referring to is called "The Road Most Traveled". Listening to this song brings out so many different feelings of craving adventure, mystery, exploration, and the desire of pushing forward through any obstacle.

I'll provide a link to the song, for any of you that have not heard it.

With these remaining 5 days, I'll try to avoid reading too much new information on the game. I want this to be a fresh experience just like the previous games have been for me. This upcoming weekend will be spent in Tamriel. That I can assure you.

Yeah, body, mind and 6 months supply of food and drink is ready. Skyrim will be my WoW!

And when that villager sounds suspiciously similar to the last 13 characters you have interacted with...

God...that music. Morrowind is and always will be my favorite game of all time, for so many reasons. The music being one of them. Oblivion was good...but had it's differences from Morrowind I didn't agree with. Skyrim being pitched as a halfway game between Morrowind's world and depth and Oblivions System and combat has me unable to wait. 5 days to go is 5 too many. it will be nice to never have to spend money on a new game for months after Skyrim. 2handed Axe wielding Bretons for life!

Morrowind's theme is still one of gaming's best.

No no no, 11/11/11 is just the year 111111 with some slashes in it.

This week is going to go by so slow...

I can't goddamn wait! I CAN'T!

Posted by DVzomb

I will definitely have the most strenuous week of workouts because I know once Skyrim is in my hands, I'll be glued to the monitor.

I almost wished they just imported the entire Morrowind Soundtrack to Skyrim, plus some more stuff like it.

Posted by DVzomb

It seems like there's a few songs in there that are incredibly similar to the previous games.

By the way, as of this moment there are 2 days and 23 hours left. This wait is killing me, but we're almost there guys!

I have to wait until the 14th.

At least I know what I'm doing this weekend. That is, until some horrible Bethesda-style game-breaking bug eats my save file.

Posted by DVzomb

1 day and 21 hours left guys! I can't even believe when I posted this blog it was 5 days! It's bee so long!

Posted by ShiftyMagician

Posted by SpawnMan

Dark Souls > Skyrim. That is all.

Posted by DVzomb
