The lights are on
Achievement leaks? Those happen all the time. Screenshot leaks? Yep, we get those. Sometimes even videos. But leaks of a game's manual? That's reserved solely for games that fans are going crazy waiting for. Case in point: Skyrim.
Someone has posted an image gallery containing pictures of the inside and outside of a supposed leaked copy of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's game manual. We were sent a link to this gallery as a news tip (thanks, Chase!), so we're not really sure where it originated from, but the pictures definitely seem real and believable. Still, consider it rumor for the time being.
The text of manual contains everything from a description of how to cook to some lore from in-game texts. If you're obsessed enough to be poring over a game's manual prior to release, then this is all probably stuff you already know, but maybe it will help cool your burning desire for a night at least.
My only question: Does the person who posted these pictures have a copy of the actual game? And if so, how do we track him or her down to steal it post-haste?
I'm so desperate that I'd pore over a screenshot of the title screen of Skyrim. I just spent probably 2 hours poring over the map that they released. I can't freakin WAIT!
Desperate for this game? Definitely. Obsessed for this game? You betcha. Insane for this game? Quite Possibly.
Uh, yes please!
Q: How many are totally psyched for this game? A: All of us. Q: How many of us will nitpick everything about this game after it comes out? A: Almost 50% of us. Sad but true.
My Precious!!!! *smeagol voice* 33 + 1 Elder Scroll junkies got there fix just now.....thats 34 btw.
I'm gonna play all the numbered elder scrolls games and before Skyrim, and do a blog. I'm about 75% done with the first game.
little to hardcore for my taste, but still a fan.
ONE MORE MONTH!!!!
Call me desperate, because real or fake I'm reading this...
I am more than desperate enough Phil, in fact, I read it twice.
SITE CLOSED??!?!?!? NOSTAFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! (dragon shout with shatter internet effect.)
I would totally read every single word of this thing. Actually, I'm going to right now. Good-bye.
WOAH. A game with a manual!
You know, I just might. I... long for this game.
Like George Costanza.
