REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

How to Cope with Skyrim Addiction

Posted on Wednesday, November 30 @ 10:20:19 Eastern by


Hi,

My name's Anthony, and I'm hopelessly addicted to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It all started as a little harmless dragon slaying, but now, it's affecting all aspects of my life, especially my health. I'm not sleeping, I rarely eat anything aside from what I find in my travels, I hold my pee until it burns with the intensity of a dual-cast Master Destruction Flames spell. I'm up all hours of the night. When I do finally make it to bed, I stare at the ceiling, dreaming of weapon enchantments, ingredients for potions, and embarking on epic quests. I'm delusional. I'm even beginning to see perks to upgrade when I gaze into the night sky.

But I'm not only neglecting myself, I'm neglecting my family, too. I spend more time in bed with my Nord wife, than I do with my real wife. After all, sleeping next to her doesn't boost my skills at all. I've begun shouting at my daughter, as many as three words at once! I am so over-encumbered with shame.

The truth is, I don't plan on stopping anytime soon, there are far too many miscellaneous quests on my list. I just need help coping until I've reached a higher level. Also, the withdrawals scare the stamina out of me. Does anyone know of an alchemy recipe that will remove the poison of night sweats and cold-turkey shivers?

Skyrim really is overtaking my life. How do you cope with your Skyrim addiction?
