Man proposes with Skyrim’s Amulet of Mara

- April 7th, 2014

Nerd love is my favourite kind of love.

Redditor Sarah Briody introduced her beau to Skyrim, who then used it to level up their relationship. He recently popped the question by placing the Amulet of Mara — the in-game item required to marry your character — around her neck.

“He gave me the amulet and while I recognized what it was — it didn’t really click as to WHAT it was,” Briody said. “I put it on and he started to smile from ear to ear. Then he said: ‘Is that an Amulet of Mara? I’m surprised someone like you isn’t spoken for.’”

“Then it finally registered that he was proposing! He got down on one knee and slipped the ring on my finger.”

Let their marriage be as engrossing and beautiful as Skyrim itself, and let any glitches along the way be patched up with minimal damage to their journey.

Rethinking Zelda with Miyamoto

- June 18th, 2013

Link’s next starring role in The Legend of Zelda: Worst Cut and Paste Ever.

Skyrim, meet Hyrule. Hyrule, this is Skyrim.

Maybe it won’t exactly be a marriage of these two very different video game worlds. But to hear legendary Nintendo game designer and visionary Shigeru Miyamoto tell it, the upcoming Legend of Zelda adventure for the Wii U could see our evergreen hero Link exploring a land that’s much more open and free than anything he’s seen before.

Why yes, that is The Guild‘s Felicia Day in a country music video about the unconventional but oh-so-sexy love between a honky-tonk man and a cosplaying woman.

It’s the latest episode of The Flog, Day’s new show on Geek & Sundry. Other notable episodes for gamers include the one where Day applies her Skyrim blacksmithing skills in real life or the one where she plays Streets of Rage for the first time.

Riding into battle against a giant in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? Um, yes please!

I love The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For all its little flaws and bugs and nuisances, it’s a meal I intend to keep nibbling on over time, stretching my Skyrim experience out as long as possible. Maybe 100 hours, maybe more. We’ll see.

But after seeing this video, my love for Skyrim feels slightly tainted.
