In the Skyrim re-play, I've been to all the major places in the main continent except Winterfell. Tried that last night and got butchered by two Snow Bears. Good thing magic falls below both stealth and power in my pecking order.

In Skyrim, going through the northern towns. Hit up Morthal and Dawnstar and did the dungeon where you're supposed to get the horn of Jurgan Windfinder and the Dawnstar Vaermina quest (did it to get the Daedra artifact achievement this time).
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 18, 2014
@Suskie @zippdementia I am now intrigued.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 15, 2014
Wandering around Skyrim still before I focus on stuff. Up to the northern reaches to hit up Morthal, Dawnstar and Winterhold, at which point I'll have been through every non-Solistheim town besides a couple settlements.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 14, 2014
@zippdementia Maybe one year, I'll get back to trying to beat BG 2. I was doing pretty good (in the Spellhold dungeon)...and then my computer totally crashed and that was that.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 09, 2014
More going through Skyrim. Advanced main quest to where I'm going to the Greybeards and did a few sidequests.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 08, 2014
@Suskie @Never3ndr Since it's one of the many games in my backlog, I damn better like it! Which is about all I have to add to this conversation. Carry on, peeps!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 06, 2014
Played a lot more Skyrim over the last couple days. Mainly doing quests around Windhelm and Riften and also joined the Dawnguard to start that expansion.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 05, 2014
Played a lot of Skyrim today, mainly doing stuff around Whiterun and then Windheim. Be a while before I get into the Companions stuff, since their first job for me takes me to a Falmer cave with those Chariru things. Too tough for now.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
@joseph_valencia I am. Going as a Khajiht (sp). Did the intro stuff, Bleak Fall Barrow and the shortish mine that's near the town you come out in after the intro.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
@overdrive While apparently trying to find ways to avoid having vampires kill everyone in the towns, from what I've read.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 03, 2014
Decision for today: Do I continue to work on games I'm playing to review...or download all of Skyrim's DLC to start that long-awaited second trip through?
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJul 01, 2014
Played a bit of Eschalon Book 1 while drunkenly house-sitting tonight. Got to L2 and am gradually feeling like I'm capable of making a bit of progress. Which might be good in this game. Not easy to get your guy off the ground.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 30, 2014
@overdrive And closed the night by beating Robo Aleste's final stages.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 30, 2014
Got through Crocomire in Super Metroid and then made it to the next dungeon in Heracles no Eikou and ground for a bit there, so the enemies won't be TOO annoying hopefully. Also have started Eschalon Book 1, but haven't gotten too far.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 26, 2014
In Persona 3, I made it to and defeated World Balance. Hit hard with spells, but easy to outlast. Helped that his Mamudoon didn't hit anyone.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 26, 2014
Wound up making a few Steam buys last night. The three Eschalons, the two Avadons and Avernum: Escape from the Pit. Six RPGs for $22; not a bad haul.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 25, 2014
Last night, I was out drinking at a friend's, but after he and his wife went to bed, I broke out the 3DS and beat the Grand Lizzier in Dragon Quest IX and made it to the next place, which seems to be an expy of Harry Potter-land.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 23, 2014
@overdrive And also finished Ryuu's quest in Burning Heroes and started Roga's. Which seems to follow the exact same path. This game is one joy after another...
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 23, 2014
In Deus Ex Human Revolution, I'm still exploring Detroit looking for XP. Finished the quest to bail out the dude who was blackmailed to give drugs to someone and got one to bring down a crooked cop. So I'm continuing to explore around.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 22, 2014
@overdrive Also started my work to train to L7 in Tactics Ogre after getting back to home base to get next mission. And beat Grecliff to bring back birds in Terranigma. Damn, those little bird enemies there were pains to deal with.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 22, 2014
In Robo Aleste, beat two more stages, so I'm on the way to Astaros, now. Apparently dude forgot all about the evil brother he was supposed to be going after or is just saving that for later.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Finished the night by playing SMT IV a bit. Beat the demon guarding the entrance to the Counter Demon Force place now that I've crossed the river.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Then got all the new equipment in Gleeba in DQ IX and made it through the dungeon to the boss. Then remembered I hadn't saved and had no intention of doing all the buying and selling again, so I warped out and saved.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
@overdrive Then got 3 more stars in Super Mario Galaxy (last regular one in Freezeflame, first in the desert one and the Bigmouth Galaxy. Then batteries in control died, so I broke out the charger/battery pack I bought a little ways back.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
Made my first run at the third boss in the final block of Tartarus in Persona 3. Enemies here can eat up your magic quickly; I'll be looking forward to when they start avoiding me. But reached L78, so I could fuse Saturnus and Vishnu.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 21, 2014
I'd almost forgotten about the Summer Steam Sale. Might have to buy something or other before the end of the month. But not today. Too lazy.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 20, 2014
Played through Deus Ex: Human Revolution through hacking through stuff at Sarif and then finding places to hack through in various local apartments. Good times!
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 20, 2014
@Suskie @jerec @Germ I'd agree with one of them. MINE.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 17, 2014
@zippdementia @zippdementia @Suskie Having fun with that one, but I liked all of those Quintet/Enix games from that era.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive Also made it through another mountain pass in Heracles no Eikou III and made it to the next town. Enemies are just annoying as hell in this game with status effects and calling allies. I think I've complained about that before.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive And played Super Metroid up through where you get the high-speed booster.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive Also made it to the desert town in Dragon Quest IX, got to where the lizard gets big and kidnaps the queen and then started grinding for equipment. Which is expensive, so this will take some time, I'd wager.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
@overdrive Then got the Luigi Star in the Honeyhive Galaxy, the hidden star in the Gusty Garden Galaxy and the second in the Freezeflame Galaxy...but died of multiple mistakes in the third star, so that was that.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 14, 2014
Beat the Floor 228 boss in Persona 3. The Carnal Snakes put up more of a fight than the last few Tartarus bosses.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 13, 2014
Last night, while drinking heavily, I also did a lot of mapping in Etrian Odyssey Untold's second floor. I'm leveled to the point where the first kind of FOE is now colored as "accessible"; however, the new kind is still colored as "avoid this dude!!!".
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 11, 2014
Finished that opening dungeon in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, slowing geting the hang of its stealth-based combat. Quit after talking Sanders down from keeping the hostage at the end.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 08, 2014
Made it to and through the first boss of the final block of Tartarus in Persona 3. L77 on 1/2 at the moment.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 07, 2014
@overdrive After working out, I did that battle and then did another dungeon in Ryuu's quest in Burning Heroes. One more to finish his stuff and move to the next character.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 07, 2014
@overdrive And then did the next fight in Stella Deus. Against Imperial forces which immediately led into a fight to earn the way to the next C4 boss, but I suspended the game to do that later, since it's time to work out a bit.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 07, 2014
Started Deus Ex: Human Revolution and played through the intro and started the first actual quest where you play with augmentations while going to some place to kill/knock out fools.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 06, 2014
@overdrive And also made it to the next area to explore in SMT IV (across the river after you get the Kelpies' help; not the place where the Ring of Gaea prevent you from going far into). Man, a 12-hour day took the mood to game out of me. No energy.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 06, 2014
Made it past 1/1 in Persona 3, so I can go back to the infinite grind-a-thon slog since the rest of Tartarus is open.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 04, 2014
@overdrive Also did the next C1 battle in SNES Tactics Ogre, finally giving up on the very suicidal NPC you can try saving. And finished by doing the Ra Tree dungeon in Terranigma. Good time, that.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 04, 2014
@overdrive I did two more levels in Robo Aleste. Up through where you fight the girl and then set back off after your brother.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 04, 2014
@overdrive Since a survival horror game with shoddy controls isn't really on the agenda, I guess I'll go with Deux Ex: Human Revolution instead. A winning situation regardless, I'd wager.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 04, 2014
Beat Red Dead Redemption. Ending was neat, even if there was a good bit of tedium leading up to it. Was going to start Alpha Protocol for next 360 game, but when I opened the case, the GameStop dullards had put fucking Alone in the Dark in instead.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 03, 2014
@honestgamer This is my goal. I could have two reviews done this week. Or, at least one, with the second coming next week. It's all about being motivated to not be looking outside and wanting to be there (side effect of a long, hard winter finally ended).
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 02, 2014
@overdrive Then did the Persian Cave in Heracles no Eikou (finishing it this time) and am working my way through a mountain pass to the next town so I can hear how to get to Olympus.
Rob Hamilton @overdriveJun 02, 2014
Did two missions for Uncle and one for Jack in RDR. Yeah...going from fighting Dutch's army to being a rancher might be good for story purposes, but this is boring as hell. Herd cattle, hunt elk, break three damn horses. Let. It. End.
