Weekend Confirmed 88 - Skyrim, Holiday leftovers

By Garnett Lee, Nov 23, 2011 11:00am PST

Join Xav, Jeff, Andrea, and Garnett as they celebrate the long Thanksgiving weekend. They share tales from Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Revelations during the beginning of the show. Some of the excellent discussions from the show comments last week fuel plenty of discussion on whether gamers want to be told a story, or play their own. Everyone is set for the 360 dashboard update, now that it's finally coming December 6. And the group starts to sort through the gaming leftovers already gathering from a great year of games that included LittleBIGPlanet 2, Bulletstorm, Crysis 2, L.A. Noire, and so many more titles that are already fading into memories. Finishing moves and a special Thanksgiving games edition of the tailgate wrap it all up.

  • Hey Garnett,

    sorry to shatter your illusions but ... that sweet little old lady you found in the forest of Skyrim ... Not quite what you thout she may have been. I met the same old lady and I found a hidden compartment that led to a basement filled with alchemy desks, human flesh and poisons. There was a letter there that was talking about her coven. When I exited and talked to her she screamed at me "no one can know my secret" and tried to kill me with magic.

    The more you know.

    Also, props for not reloading saves. I am playing the exact same way. I only have a single save file. It really adds weight to my decisions and makes me think hard about my actions and choices. The experiences has been so much more richer without having God-like powers that allow me to rewind time and change my future in a way that ultimately cheapens the experience.

    Lastly, congrats on the trans-continental sexual innuendo. When Andrea asked if you "looted her cavern" you said you "may have rooted around in her stuff" which was priceless because in Australia 'root' is slang for sex, it's about as coarse as fuck or screw. So thanks for the extra laugh, it was epic because you didn't realize how dirty it sounded to us downunder.
