    Kind of mind blowing about blair and jessica. Had zero idea. I did find it weird that she is on every week. Guess I know why now. she is moral support. Though it is weird they kind of pretend to do things seperate. Like playing games. But I was curious and checked on the net and those two actually got engaged in August. Go figure.

    For the record, Morgan has always been "HOT" for those who are just noticing her now. Now if Leah was in this feedback too I would be in heaven, though.

    I originally posted (on the review thread and the first 15 minutes of Skyrim threads) that Skyrim was terrible for the PC. That was day one, before i got the small PC update. That PC update made a huge difference. Plus, so many people were online using Steam ... i had a rare corrupted file (or missing file), once I uninstalled and reinstalled the game. The game, Skyrim, changed.

    I should have posted sooner; but I have been too busy playing and going to work! If I would have known Skyrim was this ... great I would have had days off planned for this game, instead of Battlefield 3 (dont get me wrong - I play BF 3 before Skyrim, but my life revolves around work, Skyrim, and 4 hours of sleep).

    While, the PC version is still not perfect - it is good enough! I am sorry for the original negative posts. However, it was a bit... terrible before that update!

    As far large open world games go Skyrim Dead Island etc. you'll always need some load screen for stability reasons

    P.S. The load times an how Bethesda renders Skyrim graphics is how it can be a single disk
    so deal with it Morgen :)
    oh an install does work via 360 HDD for shorter load times
    you get only a 3 or so min lawnmower boot up LOL

    The stars in this episode of Feedback shared their stories. So I feel like I need to share mine. I swear playing this game is better than that of reading a great book or watching an awesome movie. It could be a show of my generation, but games to me are so much more involving. They allow your imagination to go wild such as a book, but give you that structural binding like a movie to think about. That being said, another epic moment I had in Skyrim, aside from the one I posted in Sesslers Soapbox;
    I grew up in the mountains, so naturally I was drawn towards them. I'm probably the slowest level upper in games like this because I will take the time to explore an entire world in a game. As I made my way to the mountain side I crossed over a river. Along the river bank was a snow bear. Just grazing I suppose, when a giant walks upon it and smashes it with a club. They begin to fight and I sit there and watch. The giant wins and drags the bear off into the woods. I discretely follow the giant when a troll crosses his path. They walk by with no interaction. I continue following the giant when for some reason I decide to turn around and look at the mountain scape which was now behind me. As I look at it and all its beauty a sillhouette passes over the sky. At the time I thought it was a bird, but it was much to big at that distance to be. At that time goosebumps scattered across my arms and my neck felt hot. For once I stared at it I knew it was an ice dragon. It flew directly over me as if saying follow me. Eventually I turned back around and see the giant had dropped the bear and took off running. I ran after as if to be playing tag, but when I got about 20 yards away the ice dragon swoops down and throws the giant at least 200 ft in the air. When he plops down the dragon yells out and perches on a nearby structure. Surveying over the land. I was once again awe-struck. My second encounter with a dragon again in such a gruesome yet graceful manner. I can't say it enough, but Skyrim truly is a masterpiece.

    My favorite part of Skyrim so far has been as i walk out of the mages college in winterhold. A dragon came down right in the middle of the courtyard, Before i attacked it I heared the mages around me screaming to get out of the college. But once I started to attack it they all found the courage to fight him, It made me laugh when they cry in fear but when i charged the dragon and could see the lights of the mages around me attack the dragon with me after trying to run away. When I saw this all happen I fell in love with this game if not before that but thats when i said wow I'm a hero to these guys.

    I really enjoyed this episode a lot. Best episode since Blair started hosting. I've been kinda worried and really wanted Adam to come back, but this group of four seemed to have a very good dynamic.

    ... Well, you get points for telling Uwe Boll to kill himself. *high fives*

    I think the handheld numbers are completely meaningless. The reason the percents dropped is because EVERYONE has a device that accesses either the itunes store, andriod market or the amazon app store.

    70% of 10 million sales in 2009 would be 7 million which is the same as 35% of 20 million. The market exploded because a completely different userbase and audience and I think they have to come at it at a completely different angle instead of just weeding out handheld consoles because the people who have always bought them are still there.

    I hope everyone noticed the hilarity in the fact that the camera man(behind Jessica) was sly and aligned Blair's head to conform with the Viking helmet on the drawer behind him! Too funny.

    I highly doubt a new Xbox console will come in 2012. Why would Microsoft, or rather how could they think people would buy both, release Halo 4(which is for the 360) AND release a new system in the same time frame?Halo is Microsoft biggest franchise albeit the last few Halo outings have been "meh." A PS4, or what ever Sony decides on, could be interesting for a 2012 release. It would allow for a year start( I think the new Xbox will be Fall '13) jump over Microsoft and would be a good move for Sony. Lockdown a target audience and push the Playstation's free online to gain more support for the PS. Either way I see new consoles being shown off at E3 next June.

    Screw consoles, just develop for the real gaming machine, the PC.

    New console? Do. Not. Want.

    Not gonna lie. Love Morgan, but I'm MISSIN' THE SESSLER!
