Well, I would introduce myself, but I did that just last week over here...

Anyways, the UESP got a mention in the most recent edition of Game Informer (Issue #199) in an article called 'Lore Masters' that featured an interview with Kurt Kuhlmann, a developer over at Bethesda. When discussing The Infernal City Kuhlmann said the following:

"Bethesda also pointed Keyes toward well-organized fan sites like The Imperial Library and UESP.The author then had to submit a series of treatments for the company to page through before it settled on a story about a mysterious floating city...."

For me it is a really cool acknowledgment. I mean, the UESP is almost a shrine to the Elder Scrolls games, and to have the creators of those games tell other people we're a good source for information is one of the highest honors we could get.

Of course, calling us well organized might be a bit of a stretch, but hey, I'll take it.

What I'm playing...

In light of my recent birthday, I have attained a PS3. So here is what I am currently playing:

  • Fallout 3: I managed to get my hands on the Game of the Year edition that came out on the thirteenth. Although, I haven't started any of the DLCs yet. I have read in places that the DLC on the PS3 does not work, so here's to hoping! Oh, and this game is just simply amazing, if you haven't bought/played it.
  • Oblivion: Do I really have to explain this one? :D It's nice to finally return to Cyrodiil and talk about mudcrabs!
  • Assassin's Creed: I was a little thrown off when it I found out the game is set on the premise of reliving the ancestors life... it seems really... Matrix-y to me. I have enjoyed what I have played so far, so I hope it keeps going well.
  • Grand Theft Auto IV: This is easily one of my all-time favorite games. It is a masterpiece that builds on the shortcomings of the games before it (I don't care what you say, San Andreas sucked). And plus, I can spend hours just driving around... Liberty City (aka New York). This game just makes me smile (although the fighting could be a little bit better).

I plan on getting more games soon. Ones that I have my eye on are the Uncharted Series and Assassin's Creed II. Any good games that are PS3-platform specific that I should look into?

Hey there readers! In order to keep up with the minor tradition, here is what I am playing at the moment.

  • Nothing!

I know, it is rather upsetting, but my 360 received the infamous red ring of death way back in March. I haven't been able to get a new one, but I plan to mooch one off of my parents for my upcoming birthday this week.

So to provide more insight into how I play games, here is my Top 10 list:

  1. Mass Effect
  2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  3. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
  4. Kingdom Hearts
  5. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
  6. Bioshock
  7. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  8. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
  9. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
  10. Halo: Combat Evolved

Yeah... I don't necessarily go outside my comfort zone in video games much. Mass Effect is my top because of the depth of the game, and the fact that I nerd out hard to space fantasy (SG-1/SGU anyone?). Also, the combat game is beyond fluid, so it is comparable to reading a book. Of course, TES games are on there as well, except Arena (because it sucks). I have always been a fan of the Zelda series, even though it does predate me. And last, Halo is a great game, and the story in the first one is exceptionally done.

So more about me. I am a huge sports fan: the Colts, Pacers, Fever, Carl Edwards, and Michael Phelps are my favorites in their respective areas. I can basically watch all of the with the same enthusiasm, so I don't have a favorite except the NFL. So I might make some sports posts if people show interest (but most people who like video games and wikis... don't like sports :p ).

So that is basically my generic Welcome post, hope you enjoy reading in the future!
