Wow! I have their previous release (Nehrim), which was a TC for Oblivion. I had no idea the Skyrim TC was almost done.

Thanks nin for keeping up with it, and Blue for posting the news.

I think I will go back to the doctor and escalate things.

Definitely, dude! Better safe than sorry. Maybe a different doctor?


Agreed. They may also want to re-test you for Lyme. At least one person I know who has had the disease, initially tested negative for it. A re-test was positive.

From what I read...doesn't apply, though, as the Jeep was found in *neutral* and running... without first putting the transmission into park, imo.

But that's exactly what the recall was for.

...due to a confusing shifter that owners often inadvertently left in neutral instead of park.

Ouch, that's terrible. Apparently his vehicle was affected by the recall but hadn't been fixed. Incoming lawsuit, I guess, but it won't bring him back...

'The food is terrible here. And such small portions!'

Does anyone do that freeze and grind - or bump and grind - and can attest to that?

Come on, that elevator can't be real. At least he's drinking a Kronie.


That elevator is really funny. How can it be that small? And those Germans really look like they're having a good time - beers and all.

Oh, and that football chant is great - Irish fans have a really good sense of humor.

Playstation VR looks amazing. $400, seamless integration with the world's most popular console, and 50 games by the end of the year (including Final Fantasy 15).

That is an amazingly strong launch. I am really impressed, and I don't even own a Playstation.

Taking my GED in a few hours. BREAK OUT THE PRAYER BEADS AND BUDDAH!

Good luck man! Also, it's spelled "Buddha." No trying to be a spelling Nazi, but I don't want you to get it wrong if it's on the test!

Also, getting it wrong might cost you a place in Nirvana!

Anyhow, good luck on the test!

Congrats Blue!

Do be careful with the Lyme test though. If the symptoms come back you should have it taken again. That test is well known for false negatives. Not meaning to worry you, just being informative.

I'm guessing Fall 2017 at the earliest. But I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. I love TES games, have them all (even Redguard), and have sunk hundreds of hours into them. Except for Oblivion, oddly enough - can never really get into that one for some reason.

I do think co-op would be awesome in a TES game. My kids have been asking for that since they started playing Skyrim.

Been trying to figure out when to sandwich in another run, and I suspect this will be it. Easily my favorite of the series, and the only one I actually finished...but never got around to the DLC.


Since I have the game and the DLC, I guess I get to try this for free.

If you haven't played the DLC, it's worth it imho. I enjoyed Dawnfire and really enjoyed Dragonborn. Both very fun.

A few beers? Ha!
Pre 9-11, I used to sneak a few oil cans into Shea Stadium in my backpack every time I went to a game and it was glorious. That'll never happen again.

We went to a banner day doubleheader at Shea against the Cubs a million years ago and brought in a case of beer cans in a bag. Like you say, bygone times.

I used to love going to games at the old Yankee stadium back in the 90's, even though the beer was expensive. But the new stadium is sterile and boring, the tickets are expensive, the beer is even more expensive, and the team stinks.

It looks interesting, but not a fan of the Pinata effect of baddies exploding and raining health and armor.

Just use your imagination. Armor is pretty easy, you can collect it off of your fallen enemies. As for health, in a lot of fantasy lore, demon blood often gives power to those who consume it, so just imagine it is healing you after killing them.

If you don't use your imagination to explain things away, the overwhelming majority of Fantasy and Science Fiction makes no sense whatsoever.

No to mention armor doesn't drop off enemies unless you use a specific rune, and the health and ammo drops are pretty rare unless you use glory kills, which can be mostly ignored.

Not to mention the plot is that you were found imprisoned in Hell because you're basically a demon killer sent from the Heavens. That killing demons is what keeps you alive and fuels you for more killing demons makes sense.

I think most people disliked the concept when watching videos, but when actually playing, you come around quickly. It keeps the flow so wonderful.

The heavens? Nowhere does it imply that. The hyperbolic verse is just to show how much hell feared him. The general consensus is that the player character is either the Doom marine after he got stuck in hell after Doom 3 RoE (Or possibly Doom 2 if you fudge the ending a bit) or that he was the last member of those Templar knights avenging his fallen civilization (Or possibly both, the Doom marine might've joined up with them beforehand, as they'd have had the same goals).

The point is, Hell fears the Doom Marine. Hoorah!! Crush those Demons Marine!

And there's evidence that it's tied into something more.

Regardless, your character is a perfect demon killing machine, and that, for some reason, killing demons fuels you, kind of fits to make that true. The demons slaughtered so many by simply existing, and you basically do the same to them.

I don`t really have anything to say, just wanted to see if I can make this multi-reply post even bigger. I already had to scroll it down, even in fullscreen on a 27".

Come on folks. There really is no need for this.

Come on, it's 2016, you can't block progress man. /s

Not meaning to make the multi-reply post even bigger(! ). Anyhow, I rather like this game mechanic. After all, drinking the blood of mortals definitely makes one stronger (and is delicious), so it seems to make perfect sense.

Definitely a good idea to see a doctor. As Brian mentioned, you should check for bull's eye (erythema migrans) rash which is present in 70-80% of cases (ie most but not all). Here are the symptoms (from the CDC website):

Then again, it might just be a cold, but definitely best to check.

Good luck!

Might check this out IF they don't fill it with DLC which quadruples the cost of the game. And we all know that they will, so no DICE (pun intended).
