Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Leveling Guide

In order to use this guide to quickly level your Skyrim skills you will need understand a few basic game mechanics first. Killing things and completing quests does not give you experience like a typical RPG would. Instead, gaining experience is the result of leveling up your skills. The amount of experience you need to level up increases the higher in level you are, meaning at level 1 let us pretend you need 100 XP to get to level 2. You might then need 120 XP to get to level 3, etc. Also, the higher your skill is, the more XP you get when you level it up, meaning that raising Archery from level 1 to 2 might grant you 50 XP, but leveling Archery from level 2 to 3 might give you 100 XP.

Now, the typical way you increase your skill level in something is by using the related skill. For example, to increase your Archery level you need to hit enemies with arrows, to level Sneak skill you need to successfully sneak by an NPC without them detecting you, to level Lockpicking you need to work on picking locks, etc. There is an alternative though.

Skyrim: First Impression

I’ve been playing Skyrim for a total of 6 hours.  What follows are my initial impressions, and there are going to be some spoilers for the start of the game.

My character is currently level 8.  I decided early on that I was going to play a sneaky character, one who uses bows and daggers.  An assassin or a thief, basically.  This is the same character I played in Oblivion, which I loved, but the primary reason for my intended character build is simple: I saw a really cool assassination animation in some of the Behind-the-Scenes footage.  I want to go do that one cool thing to as many NPCs as possible.  That’s all.

REMINDER: There are going to be spoilers beyond this.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Glitches and Exploits

Everyone seems to be talking about the release of Skyrim today and I am sure most people are eager to dig into the massive story and enthralling gameplay. But who among you are looking for the inevitable glitches and exploits that will make the game a tad easier and possibly much more fun to play? Yes I thought so. There are two big exploits that have been discovered so far. Let us take a look (spoilers ahead!).

DLC Already on the Disc

If you like to keep your ear to the ground when it comes to gaming news, you have no doubt heard your fair share of controversies that seems to have a large portion of gamers up in arms. Recently with the release of Gears of War 3, one such controversy has risen to the surface again: DLC already present on game discs. It seems that no matter which gamer you ask, he or she is going to have a polarized opinion on the subject. And since individuals with opposing views on the internet tend to be incapable of making civilized arguments, I thought it might be a good idea to share my rational views on the subject.
