@Strawhat89 - that narrows it down to about 1,000 possibilities. I will see what I come up with.

Fuck my life, I wish I wouldn't have sold my Xbox copy. I played the shit out of that game. I would rather have the PC version of it though.

Was listening to Dovakhiin yesterday at work. I need that song to play when I walk in a room - hello ThinkGeek!

Slenderman.


You should check out Lindsey Stirling. I fell in love when I heard her doing the Skyrim theme song =)

Lindsey Stirling - Skyrim Theme

That's probably her. I'll check once I get out of work and let you know. I never did finish Skyrim though. Its been like 6 monhs since I played any game.

EDIT: Huzzah! 1000 posts!

EDIT 2: Nope that's not the video. Actually the one I meant was the female version of 'The Dragonborn Comes'.

You're building the emulator? Cool.


Alas no, not helping build it. I don't have enough faith in my programming skills to jump into a project that has been ongoing for several years and think I can make a meaningful contribution.

So, in order to help, I try to break it :)

Well, there are also professional testers, you know. Maybe he is one of them, and he gets paid to try and break it?

Which is what I wanted to know. Is the emulator being built by community of fans or by a company.

I play WoW regularily, I hate to admit. But when I get my fill of trolling around, I fire up the old FF series games that I have and beat them again. I've also played all the zelda's out on actual consoles (don't start on the whole hand-helds are consoles too bs), but the only one I really go back to in that series is Ocarina of time. I refuse to play the "3D" version of the game though.

Oops, sorry. Been a few days since I last stopped by.

Yeah, I do this in my spare time, and yes, it is a fan-community project. I did volunteer to be a CSR, to run in-game events, but that was just before my Grandad died, and I completely screwed it up since I didn't have the heart for anything after that happened and all but disappeared from the world for a while.

So, now I'm back in the world, I help out where I can, which means breaking it so those people doing the actual work know what needs to be fixed before it can be called finished.

And no, I'm not being paid to test it. I wish I was, but not even the developers are being paid for it.

Edit: Going back to Skyrim for a moment, I started a new game over the weekend. Up to level 14, and hating the lack of healing magic. Still, that's the price I pay for trying for a completely non-magical character (well, not including magic weapons. Thos I don't mind, but you'll not catch me throwing any spells around).
