Video: Wootini's Video Podcast #51

I've been a very, very bad boy. All I wanted to do was play a little Skyrim. I should've known that there's no such thing as playing "a little" of an Elder Scrolls game. Idiot. So now I'm hopelessly obsessed and spend the entire podcast this week talking about it. So if you're not interested in Skyrim, you might want to give this one a miss!

If you're looking for random places to explore keep an eye on the compass at the top of the screen. It's hard to see caves and such amid the busy terrain but the dungeons will show up as symbols on the compass (even if you haven't visited them yet) getting brighter as you approach.

I've never heard anyone complain about a lack of fetch quests in Skyrim, lol. Happy addiction!

Hi Wootini,

Nothing to apologize for. It's the other games' fault if they can't charm you as much as Skyrim. I'm still on the fence about buying it.

I grew up playing JRPG's and while I've loved the recent Dragon Quests I was disapointed with Final Fantasy XIII. I tried transferring to WRPG's with PS3 versions of Dragon Age 1 & 2 and Elder Scrolls Oblivion but I couldn't get used to the ugly worlds and spotty combat systems. I'm told these are better on PC but I don't have one that can run a big game. I particulary hated the dynamic difficulty (enemies leveling up with you) as the whole point of leveling in most JRPG's is to be able to dominate your foes.

In spite of this I've been told I'd love Skyrim, that it fixes these problems, and that it's a fantastic gateway WRPG. So I ask you, and your readers, how you would compare Skyrim to Oblivion and if it's worth playing on a PS3.

If you're not thrilled with what the companions want to do with/to you, but want to continue their storyline... After they do that thing to you there's more story/questing that can... "undo" what they did. I think it's hinted at before you get to the point your at where one of the other companions mention they're not happy with it either and want to undo it for them.

I too started the Companions quest line without knowing what it would ultimately involve, but I went ahead with it anyway and found it didn't really affect my character in any real negative way - you don't have to activate it if you don't want but it did come in handy on a couple of occasions.

To be honest my main reason for joining the Companions was because I wanted Farkas for a follower, but before he was available I came across Vorstag in the Markarth Inn (hired for 500 Septims) and now I can't bear to be without him - the things he says are so endearing, especially when he's moaning about being cold xD
