    One other thing I’ll say about playing Skyrim tonight

    A second Twitter thread from May 3, 2021, in which I talk about prior experience with turn-based combat in games, and how different playing Skyrim is in comparison.

    I have become a console gamer!

    Like a lot of folks during the pandemic, my housemate Paul got heavily engrossed in playing Animal Crossing. He specifically ordered himself a Nintendo Switch so that he could play it. And from all the things he was sharing about the experience of playing it, a couple weeks ago I started thinking, gosh that sounds like fun, I’d like to play it too I think.

    (Lots of details behind the fold!)

    This is what I had to say about that on Twitter:

    Today I got the add-ons I ordered for my Switch

    A Twitter thread from April 28, 2021, in which I determined that nope, still not ready to leave Riverwood. But this was also when I discovered how to take screenshots, and that I really needed to set the Invert Y setting in my game!

    Also accomplished on the Switch

    This is the first of several posts to provide links back to Twitter threads for Alarrah’s playthrough, from before I started documenting her action directly in WordPress.

    Putting in wrapper posts for those threads just because it’ll let me organize them better on Alarrah’s page, and put tags and categories on them!

    Here, I had the very first kickoff tweet for buying Skyrim for the Switch, as well as a 400GB SD card!
