Skyrim, Witcher 2 and Giving of Thanks!
by Margaret Krohn on February 6th, 2012

Hello world,

I suppose a few of you were awaiting a new Yuria's Log entry. Unfortunately, our dungeon master is a bit sick, so we were unable to play. Instead, I thought it might be fitting to express what I am most thankful for and of course, talk about what games I've been playing most recently.

I too, just as many other gamers, have been glued to my computer playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Even with crunch time, working chaotic hours, I've managed to find time to play Skyrim. It's been a lot of fun. I played through
...Beautiful, I often feel lost. It's this giant world for me to play in, but it feels rather empty. I suppose this is because I am an MMO addict. I haven't really been big on single player games. I play them, but I miss the interaction of real people. I did find one character in Skyrim that caught my eye. I was emptying my belongings because I had become encumbered and this little boy came up to me and said something along the lines of, "Ma'am, you dropped this," giving me one of the items I had placed on the ground previously. It was the one moment I actually felt like the world interacted with me, other than the obvious mobs attacking me. It was unexpected and that's what was great about it. The only request I have for the next game they make is...Please, oh, pretty please...Make it a co-op! =] If this game was co-op, I could have probably played it for triple the amount of time! I just got to a point where I felt lonely. Not really bored, since there's a ton of things to do and places to explore. Just...Lonely, even with the companions. I guess I had that same feeling when I played it's predecessor.

Lonely, indeed. Maybe, I've also been feeling a bit lonely IRL (in real life). My family is so far away. It's always the worst part about holidays for me. I rarely get to see them all since they live so far away and I am so thankful that I have such a wonderful family. Even with all the things we've been through, we are all strong and ambitious. It's nice to be around people who have goals and accomplish them. They always motivate me to be a better person. This goes for my friends as well. I may not have a lot of close friends, but the ones I do have are friends that will always be there for me. We are friends for life and that seems rare to find these days. I'm so lucky to have amazing people around me all the time. Not only as friends and family, but also as co-workers. I'm glad that I have my dream career and I am so thankful for all the opportunities I've had in life. I wouldn't change a thing - the good or the bad - because combined these are the things that make me, me.

I haven't been home in quite a long time. It can be a bit depressing, but I'm so fortunate to have such great friends. This year, for Thanksgiving, my friend and I decided to combine what little family we had here in Cali in order to have a Thanksgiving of our own. It actually turned out quite well. We both split up the food tasks and it turned out great! I think the best thing I made was the Pumpkin Cupcakes! They weren't on the list, but I found the recipe and thought it sounded great. I'll make a separate blog about that and link it. Everyone should taste these. My boyfriend, who hates pumpkin, LOVED them. So even if you aren't a pumpkin eater, this might be the thing that changes your mind. =D
After Thanksgiving, I was a little bummed. I had a long weekend to relax and game and no MMO to aid me. I've really been craving an MMO. I've almost debated trying out SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic), but I'm completely disinterested in the Star Wars universe. I'm tired of the theme. Not that I don't like Star Wars! I do! It's just been over played. Instead, I found myself playing The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. I've wanted to play it ever since I knew it was being made. I had played The Witcher and loved it. I do have to say that the sequel is even better. The characters are much more unique than Skyrim. I still get that side questy open world feel that Skyrim provided, except the terrain is a bit seasoned. The combat is challenging! Some of the boss fights are absolutely awesome. It's one of the first RPGs where I actually felt fairly challenged. I'll definitely have to get back to you on how I feel about The Witcher 2 once I finish it, but I'll leave you with this...
I kind of have a girl crush on Triss. There. It's been said. =P

<3 x 9001,
