Eh, I can never get into the destruction magic in these games. Feels a bit underpowered, but I guess if it's at no magicka cost through alchemy/enchant then it might be alright.

My preferred style of play has always been stealth. It's pretty easy but still very satisfying. Throw in a little illusion magic for creativity on assassin contracts (such as using frenzy on civs near your target), and it's normally pretty fun.

@Renegade412 Well I had a character started that I got up to level 34, but I didn't have enchanting and I was going the Destruction Magic route, so I decided to start a new character and work on getting Enchanting, Light Armor, Speech, Destuction, Restoration all up. And now I have added Alchemy and possibly Smithing (because I want to get Dragonscale armor). So most of my leveling comes from traveling and such, but I have used a few exploits (there is one you can do immediately after you start in Riften for 100 speech in 30 min or so, and it got me to level 14).

Now I have my Enchanting and Alchemy to a point where I can enchant my armor so that my Destruction spells cost 0, and I am loving it. I'm decked all out in Glass armor and enchanted all over. I have the black star and now I am working on the main quest.

I noticed you were a level 42 in Skyrim with virtually no quest lines completed. Yep, you're still going to be playing it for MONTHS.

Didn't realize Doctor Who was airing in 2 days until today! Woohoo. Happy surprise.

@likwidsolutions Morrowind is my favorite game of all time. Oblivion, to me, was a huge misstep (obviously a lot of people liked it as it's the game that gave TES "mainstream" appeal), but Skyrim is more of a step back in Morrowind's direction, with its emphasis on lore and an expansive world you can just get lost in without the game trying to hand-hold you. I would hiiiiiighly recommend you go back to Morrowind at some point - even though the gameplay, particularly the battle system, is extremely dated, it's still a masterpiece of its time and has some of the best art direction I've ever seen in a game.

Glad to welcome you to the Elder Scrolls fold, though - been a huge fan since Morrowind came out (I also have some experience with Daggerfall, which is also really good for its time if you can get past the rather odd battle mechanics). Great games, particularly Morrowind and Skyrim.

Not really TV related but right now Skyrim is way better than TV, and with what little time I have I want to play this. I can't believe I never really gave the other ES's a chance. I loved Fallout 3, but the battle system in III and IV were just ehh. I might play Morrowind and/or Oblivion after this though.

@Renegade412 Not really TV related, but have you ever read "American Gods" by Neil Gaimon? I remember you saying you were a huge Gaimon fan. I found out about it because lately I've been listening to a bunch of Audiobooks and Audio Dramas and there is a Audio Drama of American Gods that I am about to listen to. Audio Dramas are the shit. I've listened to a bunch now: I, Claudius (10/10), We're Alive (8/10) - a zombie survival story that would be better than Walking Dead if it were on TV as well. The writing is definitely better.

Now I am listening to A Song of Ice and Fire. Just finished GoT, now on CoK.

@Renegade412 I also watched the pilot for The Newsroom, I reallly liked it. I'm gonna try and watch some more today because I have today off and I only have 1 more episode of S1 of DtB.

Clicked to see what you've been watching recently... Darker Than Black, I see. I guess I should get to download the second series and the OVAs.

@likwidsolutions That sounds like a pretty good job...especially compared to customer service. Honestly, I think driving around to various places all day and occasionally getting out to move things would be a pretty sweet job to have while you're trying to figure out what to do with the rest of your life, so good for you, man.

@Zelos I'm working as an independent contractor. I deliver car parts from this warehouse to different auto shops like Firestone, Monro, Advanced Auto Parts, etc. It's pretty nice because the pay is good for a job that doesn't really have any qualification requirements besides being 21 and having a driver's license; I don't have to deal with customers that much (which I hate, having been on the phone for years); I get to listen to music all day. The thing I really love about it is that the work isn't monotonous (it's not the most exciting job either), and the time goes by rather quickly.

As for my education, I have an Associate of Arts degree. I was going to go and get my Bachelor's, but almost everyone I know with a Bachelor's can't get a job worth anything, so I basically figured that I would work for a while and then possibly go back to school. In the meantime, however, I do plan to study to get CompTIA + certified, which is the industry standard for entry level IT work.

@likwidsolutions Just to be clear, what do you do exactly? Some sort of delivery or truck driving or something?

I've been doing this job for about three years while studying. Honestly, I have no idea what I'll do as a career, but it probably won't be this. Something in administration, probably.

@Renegade412 i see. I worked at two call centers, terrible jobs. I will never go back to something like that. Right now I am just working this job until I get certified to do IT work, which I am studying for and waiting to take the test.I graduated, but everyone I know who has just graduated is having a lot of trouble finding jobs in the field they studied, so that's why I'm going the certification route. I'm curious, are you doing what you went to school for, or are you working this job until you find a better one or is it the kind of job you have to work at for a while to move up?

Oh, most of my work is off the phone. Basically, I look at tax returns and fix errors that pop up on the system. If I need more information or clarity, I call the client or their agent. Calls rarely last more than 3 minutes.

@Renegade412 Oh god, I hate phone jobs. I've worked on the phone for about 6-7 years total and I just hate it. They suck your soul out IMO. They do tend to pay well since they have high turnover rates. What exactly do you do on the phone? I did telemarketing and then another place I did retail and Customer Service, I hated all of it.

I could watch episodes in my car while delivering. In fact, I already have, but obviously it is a little more dangerous and I can't ficus my attention on it while driving so I said screw it for now.

Nice. I just had my first day shift today. I'm thinking I may be able to format some stuff and put it on my ipod to watch/listen to, but nothing I'm overtly keen on watching. I can get away with headphones as long as I keep my work up, only need them off when I'm making calls.

@Renegadelete the good thing about working (besides the obvious benefits) is that since I'm a driver, I get to listen to music and Doctor Who audio dramas all day. I've been trying to listen to at least one new (new to me) album a day.

Ha, I'm going to slow down too - next week I'm moving to day work, 8-5, plus half an hour travel each way. Plus all the games I've recently got on Steam. And weekends are taken up by watching sport. No time for TV anymore.

@Renegade412 Shouldn't be too hard. I am averaging probably 3 hrs of tv a day, since I'm working most of the time, 10hrs a day/5 days a week. But more power to ya!
