I am a Brazilian student in Norway. I also happen to really, really like games! I'm a huge RPG fan, especially JRPGs and party-based WRPGs, but I also enjoy nearly every genre, from Mario Kart to Limbo to Bulletstorm.

I finally took the plunge and bought Skyrim from Gamersgate. Being as spoiled by Steam as I am, I was patiently waiting for a 75% discount, but unfortunately (for me. Very fortunately for Bethesda), it seems Skyrim was way too successful to get that kind of discount any time soon. Waiting for discounts also allows for the worst bugs to be patched and for great mods to be developed, 2 particularly important things when it comes to Bethesda games. In any case, the wait simply became too much!

Oblivion was my first Elder Scrolls game, and it absolutely blew me away. Until then, I'd only played story-driven RPGs, and though they remain my favorite kind, wandering around Oblivion's gorgeous (at the time) landscapes was simply... magical.

The Law of Expectations all but guarantees the experience won't be as magical this time around, but it will probably be pretty great all the same. After braving the snows of Norway, it is now time to brave the snows of Skyrim, and that's such an exciting prospect I just had to come here and write about it!

So wish me luck, fellow adventurers (and please recommend me some good mods while you're at it). Tamriel, here I go!
