Just started a new game of Skyrim (I’m thinking of writing a walkthrough) and took an alternate route to Morthal from Whiterun (the more direct route through the mountains) and did not remember that there was a killer ice troll there. And I was level five. Ooops. After many potions I finally whittled him down to a few HP right as he took me down to a tiny sliver, but I was faster on the uptake! Talk about mad gaming skills. Next, maybe I’ll take on a giant without a companion.
P.S.– If you haven’t played Skyrim yet, it’s nowhere near as good as all the Metacritic reviews make it out to be. It’s fun and all, but really more of a 7 than an OMFG 10++!11!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!! Gameplay is fine, but really lame story. If you’re a lemming you’ll think it’s genius, but if you want a fun sandbox game, go for Fallout 3 (if you’ve been living under a rock for the past 3 years and haven’t yet played it).
