Sorry I can’t stay long, I just figured I would write to let you know I’m ok, and living in the wonderful world of Oblivion. Much has happened since I first rented this. I’ve seen the Emperor die right before my very eyes, and I didn’t get blamed much to my surprise. I’ve discovered my previously unused ability to cast magic spells, I’ve learned how to be a pickpocket, and I’ve traveled to other dimensions and slain their inhabitants. As a matter of fact I seem to be slaying a lot of people since I’ve gotten here. It seems that I’m a really blood thirsty bastard when it comes right down to it. Oh well, all in the name of profit I say. I’ll write more when I can think of something to tell you (basically when I’ve killed more people and done it in a way that’s worthy of the telling).

Well, I’ve managed to drag myself away from the 360 long enough to write you all another letter, as I’m beginning to suspect I may never fully return from Oblivion. Everywhere I look it seems as though I’m discovering something else to do. I’m on a quest now, as I’m a member of “The Blades”. I thought they were just some figure skating team but to my delight they are the personal guards of the Emperor. Sweet. I wonder if I get to wear one of those spiffy red outfits like the Emperors guards did on the Death Star. Anyway, I’ve managed to level up a few times, and who knows what will happen once I start to get some real spells.

The game had to go back today. I was sorely tempted to bring the case back and leave the game in the system, but that would be a nasty trick to pull, so I did what I had to do. I returned it. I did it by convincing myself about what a buggy piece of software the game really is, though in all honesty I don’t truly hold it against the game. Riding a horse (Oh yes, I got a horse! Imagine, me, the equestrian!) causes the 360 to just chug along like you’re riding a bike on the sidewalk, every couple of seconds, you hit a bump. You can almost predict it. The bump in this case is the load screen that temporarily slows down the game. And I really don’t like how I can’t attack anything while on the back of my horse. I have a bow, I have some arrows, what gives? These are the things I told myself as I returned the game.

I’m experiencing hunger pains and I’m feeling a strong need to sneak around in some ancient tomb. Clearly I’m going to have to obtain a copy of Oblivion so I can get this out of my system. Or further into my system, however it works. I don’t care, I just know I need it. Excuse me while I try to hammer my armour back into shape. Oblivion is coming and I will be prepared. See you next week…maybe.
