GameGeex - And now for your moment of Skyrim zen... Wren the Reaper's time lapse Skyrim photography shows off the beauty of its landscape.

YouTuber Wren the Reaper knows that to truly appreciate the beauty of Bethesda's Skyrim, one needs to take a moment to stop slaying, stealing, and crafting and simply look around. Using a bit of in-game time lapse witchery, Wren has created a video that lets you bask in the glorious scenery of the land without fear of a randomly generated dragon showing up out of nowhere and biting your head clean off.

Feel free to take a moment to watch the following video. Meditative yoga pose entirely optional.

I "acquired" Skyrim for the PC.  It is too gorgeous for my PC.  I am going to wait until I tire of Battlefield and then get it for PS3.  Looks great so far though.

Hey now, stop "acquiring" games, that's shorting money from an industry I plan on living off of some day! 

Also, Skyrim is worth every penny. I wont go into details because Mandie has a review in the works that should be hitting the site soon, but its definitely a must-own. Legitimately purchased, preferably. :P

I still think "momentofzen" is a great Pandaren name.

I generally don't acquire games in that fashion.  In fact, of all of the games I have recently torrent'ed, I purchased them all on one platform or the other (Fallout: New Vegas, Stracraft 3, and Battlefield 3).  Now, to be perfectly honest, the main reason I don't pirate games is that I enjoy the trophies, online play, and DLC ... all of which cannot (at least the first two) be enjoyed with a non-retail game.

As for the game, the best review I heard about the game needed only one sentence.  "They [Bethesda] simply dropped an entire country into a box."

I can agree with the "country in a box" metaphor. Skyrim is pretty much following the definition of a Sandbox RPG, where you can spend hours, days, even months playing the game and completely ignoring the main story line if you wanted to. The only thing I could ask for would be an option to create personally hosted, persistent multiplayer servers, so that I could "live" in the same copy of Skyrim as my friend's characters. Not so much a full on MMO, because then you bring in the Random Asshat Factor, which can destroy the immersion instantly.

I would never, ever, ever spot a hordie on an escort quest and ...

Stealth
Premeditation
Shadowstep
Ambush
Shadow Dance
Ambush
Ambush
Ambush
Vanish

No, never.

Well, I was speaking more about the type of Asshat that randomly slaughters all the Quest NPCs or burns down a town just to make the game unplayable to others, but Ill admit the annoyance of your type of Asshat as well. ^_^ But thats why I dont play on PvP servers - so I dont have to worry about that kind of thing.

SIngle-player RPGs.... just don't pull me in like they used to. I beat KOTOR 1&2 with every possibility in both games (mainly because I'm a Star Wars super-fan...SUPERRR FANNN!!!...Ok just Super Fan. Just fan.).

Fable and Mass Effect came a long and they didn't have that same effect on me. I beat them...once. Maybe it's just all the MMOs I played at one point, from free to p2p. The motivation to acquire things in the MMOs was much higher but in the single-player rpg, obtaining the Epic Super Sword of 10,000 Lost Souls was like,"cool, ok. done".

Can't wait to see the GGX Skyrim review though! Maybe I'll pop the game in.
