Malukah Oblivion

Teacher, the dog ate my Oblivion homework!

Today, I played Oblivion without any pants on.malukah oblivion

I started out dressed, I assure you… but I guess somewhere during the tutorial I switched to a robe and then looted a piece of light armor that protected my upper section… and nothing else. Hahaha!

I tried playing Oblivion on Xbox 360 two years ago, and I didn’t get very far because I was more used to console games that required me to simply shoot stuff. I felt a bit overwhelmed with the menus and choices. RPG n00b!

Skyrim’s UI design with all the simple to use menus is what helped me begin to understand how things work, and this made me want to try Oblivion again.

I started a new game, got through about 40 minutes maybe (half of that time I spent looking for my pants)… and then died. Imagine my surprise when I loaded the last autosave and found myself almost at the beginning.

I was reminded of every school paper or project I lost when my computer froze.

This made me realize that the modern (and frequent) autosave function in games has made me somewhat lazy. I wrongly assumed the game was saving as often as Skyrim or Mass Effect 3. (Although there were a couple of times in Skyrim where I got killed while exploring and got sent all the way back to the town I left from.)

Lazy or not, I’m glad frequent autosaving exists in many newer titles.

I will return to Oblivion another day. Once I get over the tiny resentment I feel at the moment. Hahaha!

Love,
Malukah

    Hi Malukah! I began to play a Skyrim after has finished Dark Souls 2 (where it is impossible to save a game most). At the beginning I too couldn’t get used to it in any way and few times began a game almost from the very beginning. I didn’t play Oblivion yet (probably because I can’t finish a skyrim in any way). The best wishes from Uzbekistan. Also don’t lose pants! Hehe!

    Hi Malu, I loved Oblivion, it got me into the Bethesda games. I would ride around on my horse and stop and look at the heavens and planets and moons and marvel, with that beautiful music playing in the background. So when Skyrim came out, I couldn’t wait to play it. Such an enriching experience. Sometimes I’m so jealous of devs that get to make games 😆
