For our latest hands-on look at Skyrim, Bethesda gave us three hours to do whatever we wanted. In part 1, Nikole "Godzirra" Zivalich heads south towards the town of Falkreath, getting into all manner of trouble along the way. Here's a sample of her adventures.
"There wasn’t a clear path to my destination. There were mountains, rivers, and an abundance of wolves who always attacked me no matter how much I stayed away. I went into this game knowing I was going to “national geographic” it; meaning I would just watch the wildlife AI from afar. Maybe it was because I was a cat, but those wolves were d*cks. Overly aggressive or not, I appreciated their programming. From a distance, I could see them find prey, stalk it, hunt it down, and then howl to call other wolves."
