Endweek News

You will have, obviously noticed that last week we had no news on Sunday and that this week we actually had no news on Wednesday either. And there are very good reasons for both of these things. As you might be aware I am in the middle of my exam period and I’m finding it a little more difficult to make the time to do the news. But don’t worry, after next week things ought to return to pretty much normal as both me and Tim will be finished.

Hell, if you need to read this to make your decision, allow me to prevent you from having to bother to scroll the read the rating at the bottom. Skyrim is quite simply the best game I have ever played.

Seb’s Skyrim Journal, Part 5 – The Thu’um!

I’m going to be honest, until now I have had problems and concerns about the Thu’um, or Dragon Shouts in Skyrim. I mean, I was level 15 and I had two shouts. I had “WULD!”, the first word (of three that are in each shout) of Whirlwind Spirit, and that made me run fast… In a straight line… For half a second… So that wasn’t very impressive.

I also had “FUS RO” the first two words of the famous “FUS RO DAH!” or Unrelenting Force. And while that did knock enemies back, which was useful to buy time with when I had low health, it did basically no damage and was essentially useless.
