Skyrim Let’s Play: SorcererDave Plays Dragonborn


SorcererDave’s I, Claudius Skyrim LP continues!

I have been doing my Skyrim Let’s Play ‘thing’ for several months now, and I have to say it’s a blast to be able to tell stories while playing a darn game that I enjoy, and be it a passing fancy or eventually a longtime endeavor that I pursue, I credit a couple of people for getting me into it- the two Skyrim LP-ers who have had the most influence on me. One is Gopher- yep, the almighty wonderful Gophernator, whose own longtime LP ended recently (though he may return to Tamriel from time to time). The other is SorcererDave formerly Jingles1218.

Of all the LPers I have the pleasure of watching and following on Youtube, Dave is perhaps among the most well-known, and his series- I, Claudius- which follows the saga of a decidedly unlikable hero in the form of his titular Imperial Legion Soldier, is now on its Fifth Season/Chapter. Previously, Dave had gone on somewhat of an indefinite leave from playing Skyrim, with little information on when he would continue. Well, thankfully he has finally come back to the game, and it seems that he is enjoying himself, as well as playing a specific DLC of the game (Dragonborn) which he actually hasn’t played yet at all. Which should lead to loads of fun for both him and viewer.

What makes Dave’s LP exceptional for me is the way he tells his story- aside from his goddamn awesome voice (Englishmen have it so damn good, dammit), the craft of how he edits and frames his videos and his adventures onscreen are just second to none. I especially love the way he handles the music, and this chapter in particular- the way he starts off his episode- the narration, the writing, and DAMN the music with the titles… it is art. The way he commentates is a cross between roleplay and real world commentary, which is something I guess I can never really do, so its always something for me to learn from. Anyway, I do think that even after four solid chapters, Claudius has a LOT more adventuring to do in Skyrim, and I am hoping this series continues onward in the many months to come.

For now, I got me a new Claudius episode to enjoy so I’m clam-happy. Heheh.
