Joined the Stormcloak side with my Breton Nightblade (mage/thief) because eff the Empire for wanting to cut my head off and blindly signing up without realizing the prevalent xenophobia.
The fort raids were kinda fun, though they didn’t really feel like battles, since I was able to either sneak in and chain lightning groups to death, or run in and chop down Imperials left and right (though… I’ve left this for last before finishing the main questline, and I’m level 52… >_>)
Just…the battle for Solitude, it’s supposed to be epic, the culmination of your efforts. But it’s just like the fort raids, you rush in, a tornado of death, make your way to the castle, chat with Tullius and Rikke, they die, Ulfric honors you in his speech (if you chose it), and…that’s it. Unlike other questlines, where the guards, and even some people, recognize you for things you’ve done, no one so much bats an eye. I’m the freakin’ Dragonborn Stormblade, bane of Imperials, a highly regarded officer under the future High King of Skyrim, and guards condescendingly recognize me only as a mead fetcher?!
How did Ulfric know I was the Dragonborn, anyway? I don’t remember telling him, nor ever using a shout in front of him. Plot hole?
D: Maybe I just wanna be an attention whore ingame, but hey…I think it would be nice if the guards had some dialogue regarding it, like everything else. Would seem as though your character actually makes an impact on Tamriel’s military history, which of course, is ripe with conflict.
Well, time to finish the main questline. I just hope it’s as epic as the Dark Brotherhood quests were…
I don't get the hate towards Skyrim for winning Game of the Year
Skyward Sword is amazing in its own right, but the depth at which Skyrim goes to immerse the player is mind blowing. They can’t be compared to each other though, the audiences and genre are different. I wish people would stop with that.
Then again, those that may be angry are probably people who haven’t even played Skyrim. And if they have, well, to each his own.
