The real reason I play games - Tactical Ninja

Last night in my game, I got chased by a giant cow thing called a druffalo. Because I shot at it. OK I shot at it more than once. Turns out they are heavily armoured and don't like being shot at. And they are immune to my main spell.

Normally in games if you run far enough, the thing chasing you will give up. Turns out that this isn't the case with druffalo. Either that or my puny mage legs couldn't get enough distance between me and this thing to make it stop. It chased me all the way back to the village and into a house. Then it got its horns stuck in the wall after charging me, and I hit it with my staff till it died.

Tonight I'm going to bait one and see what happens if I lead it into the Chantry.

Quests, what quests? Druffalo!

First I have to get it to stop trying to kill me.

But maybe later on when I've levelled up my Animal Whisperer in the skill tree or something.

*amused*

Part of why I don't play games is because I would spend all my time doing things like taunting druffalo to see what happens.

The main reason is that I have an extremely addictive personality and would have no life for as long as I was immersed in the game. Though Jingwei was really into Skyrim for a while and it looked varied enough that I was tempted.

This game is similar to Skyrim in that it's an open-world adventure RPG, but I get the feeling this one is going to be better. Not sure if that is because Bioware are better at character-driven storylines, or if I just prefer this gameworld.

My partner is on an on-going quest to upgrade our graphics card so he can play far-cry and hang out with tigers...

An admirable goal!

My new RAM arrived today, which is impressive given that I only sent the faulty stuff away on Monday. Yay Paradigm!
