My daughter has been playing Skyrim with some assistance from me (the most awesome/worst parent ever).

She mainly steals stuff and buys houses. She is cornering the Skyrim real estate market.

Too bad there arent more houses to buy. I just bought the last one available to me in Markarth, which I like quite a bit.

Too bad also that none of the houses have a Forge in them, then I could store all my stuff as well as create things in the same place.

New DLC is coming for Skyrim on the 360 this summer sometime.....looks like it's a temporary exclusive, so no timeline yet for PS3 and PC release. Supposed to center around an evil vampire lord and a some vampire hunters, according to the latest magazine the son got from Gamestop.

The best place for storing stuff for me is Whiterun. I keep all the stuff upstairs in the chest and when I have enough, I load up and walk next door to the forge and smelter. (Don't forget the leather) Just keep making iron daggers and sell them back

I'm really glad that Steam bundled up all the Spore games, saving me -$0.03!

Question:

My PS3 has been acting up the past few weeks. I can watch Netflix, MLB.tv, or DVDs all day long with no problems. Put in an actual PS3 game disk, and I can play for maybe 15 minutes. Seems like when it tries to save it will freeze. Noticed first while playing MLB the show. After a game it automatically saves while going to the main menu screen. After a game or two it will freeze, every time. Only way to do anything is to eject the disk using the button on the PS3 (controller will not work while frozen). After rejecting the disk and getting everything back working, if you reinsert the game the PS3 does not recognize that a disk has been inserted. I tried other games, same deal. CoD for instance will freeze after a round is over while the results splash screen is up before you go back to the menu where you can edit loadout, see the other players bio and stats, etc.

Also, when I take the disk out, it is very hot. I am sure that has something to do with it. Maybe I just need to open the thing up and clean out whatever dust is in there

Anyway, could this be a heat issue, or possible hard drive issue since it only appears to happen when games are being saved?

Been waiting rather impatiently for the Steam Summer Sale to start. I need more games that I'll never have time to play.

Amazon had some really cheap bundle deals on games recently. You might check that out.

If you liked Zelda on the SNES and don't mind a crazy/creepy game check this out (the art is from the same guy who did Super Meat Boy):





Only 2.50 on steam!

Edit....make that 1.24
