Getting biblical

I really did mean to start Resistance 3 yesterday. This was before the mandatory gig of updates and fifteen minute install broke my will and I loped back to Skrim like a ADHD puppy. I didn't have enough time to get anything done, I just wanted to wander through hills and try to kill a giant (it worked, they lose track of sneaky thieves rather easily).

The kind of freedom offered in Skyrim can sometimes be counterproductive. With so much to do and so many way to do them a player can become overwhelmed. Thankfully Skyrim organizes your quests just well enough to keep things moving and the side quests are more than the usual fluff used by other titles to flesh out play time. Everything if permissible, but not everything is beneficial. Yes, I could walk through town and kill almost everyone, but that would break so many quests that it would be counterproductive. It is tempting to empty of town of things to do and then turn into a werewolf and eat my way from one end of town to the other, but that will have to wait until after the main quest is done.

Resistance 3 will be started tonight, for sure this time, though I will not promise to be thinking about playing something else the whole time.
