Tragic Fall Classic
Scrim Review Arthur Underworld Diver university So you’re sitting at home bored for hours on end, and you want something to Just take your mind away from reality and into another world where you can do whatever you as you wish. Well it sounds like you want to play a video game. Actually, it sounds like you want to play Elder Scrolls V: Scrim.
This is a review of the popular cross platform video game commonly referred to as Scrim. I give this game a 9. 75 out of 10 for its amazing graphics, fantastic attention to detail, smooth gamely. Underfed harasser development, and of course, fun story line. The game starts with the main character on the verge of getting executed when he is saved by none other then a giant fire-breathing dragon. You hear from other players that dragons are extinct in this world for centuries. Obviously not. You must decide quickly whether you will escape the burning town with the imperial guard, or with the leader of the rebellion who has recently murdered the king and claims that government is oppressing the natural born peoples to Scrim.
This decision is not an important one, but introduces oh to the tact throughout the game you will given choices. Some of which are not simple. Simple this or that choices are prominent, but some are as complicated as do nothing and your reputation will be hindered. You soon find out that you are the dragoon. You have the power of Theme, or voice. You can yell and basically effect the world around you by either doing damage or even become Invisible. The storyline Is complicated and involves twists and plots and quite a lot of dragon killing, and inevitably, dragons killing you.
Probably the most annoying part of the game. Eating stuck in a dragon fight that can take some time to finish if your not inept in magic, and all the sudden here comes another dragon, and on a rare occasion, a third or fourth dragon. Leaving you with little ability to defend yourself against an onslaught of dragons that will most likely leave you burnt too crisp on the side of some road, The Elder Scroll series is famous for their use of the guilds. The Dark Brotherhood, an assassins’ guild, the Thieves’ Guild, the Fighters’ Guild, and the Mages guild are all, as expected, playable in this game.
I played through all the guilds this time and am glad to report that there is nothing that leaves you wanting more afterward. Being able to sneak around and play a thief or an assassin, making money and getting rewards beyond compare from regular side quests. Becoming the leader of the Mages guild was particularly rewarding, with a room full of loot and Ingredients that always regret, allowing you to restock on potion Items from hard to find Ingredients in the same room. Character development is particularly exciting In this game. Previous role playing Ames allow stats Increases by overall experience and level ups.
In Scrim you level up certain buffs such a health regeneration and a big enough armor rating you can actually level up things like armor by attacking a guard and sitting there and letting the guards attack you. In about an hour your armor rating will be at 99, and you sat back and read your homework the whole time. However with skills like conjuration and lock pick, it’s a little harder to level up. Unless you start lock picking, or conjuring monsters early in the game you’ll find yourself with a pathetically low level near the ND of the game and needing to make up so many skill levels to level up you main level.
This will be very time consuming, especially with the skills I mentioned. The first thing you’ll notice about the game, however, is its graphics. Scrim has no cut scenes such as this. All the graphics are designed on the same engine that runs game play. The good and the bad for this you ask? Well loading time can get annoying, but if you download the game to your console then load times are reduced by about half. Rendering graphics can also get glitch. Sometimes an object will appear and twitch back and forth stuck on an invisible wall or level.
This rarely effects gamely however, so is easily overlooked. Aside from the graphics, the attention to detail in every level of the game is without compare. This is an open world game, which meaner you can travel to any section of the world at any time for any reason. The countryside is full of mountains covered in snow. The valleys are full flowers and plants, all of which are able to be harvested for ingredients to sell/trade or brew potions. Every item you see can be kicked up and sold or used.Tragic Fall Classic Winning a World Series is the most coveted prize for any team in major league baseball. The “Fall Classic” of 1919 represented the power of greed. This series displayed a form of greed that may never be reached again in any professional sport. Most athletes possess the admirable greed of winning and succeeding. In 1919, six players of the Chicago White Sox showed a form of greed that rarely occurs In such a respectable game. What most professional baseball players never get to experience was traded for cash incentives.
Through all the persuasion and temptation for meeting of monetary value that some would consider worth more than a world championship, two men exhibited that true love for the game of baseball and loyalty to one’s team can help overcome such temptations. This series not only represented the utter greed of 6 players, but the loyalty, strength, pride, and respect for the game of baseball that can counteract such a heinous form of greed. After winning their respected leagues, the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago White Sox faced off in the most popular sporting event in America at the time (Cook 3). Baseball during the sass was very popular.
This was because the untied States was at war from 1 914 to 1919. Americans turned to the great sport of baseball to escape the harsh reality of what was going on overseas (Casino 12). In large cities like Cincinnati and Chicago, the need to find an outlet for entertainment was easily obtained by spending the afternoon in the ballpark (Casino 13). Both teams were supported by two of the most loyal fans in the country. Both Chicago and Cincinnati had tremendous fans. Baseball was the pride and Joy for these cities in 1919. The loyalty went far beyond city limits. Fans throughout the teams respected states showed support (Cook 14).
Each fan base wanted to have their baseball team represent their city in the highest fashion. Winning the World Series not only boosted the morale of an entire metropolis, it served as a symbol of littleness only reached by one city a year. Despite knowing how loyal its fans were, Chick Gandhi of the White Sox persuaded gambler Joseph Sullivan that his team could pull Off “fix” of the series (Casino 22). Gandhi persuaded Eddie Cootie, Claude (Lefty) Williams, Happy Fell’s, Swede Riggers, and Fred McMullen to Join in on the fix. The money was supplied by notorious New York City gangster Albert Rottenest (Casino 24).
Sandal was able to persuade the players because they were offered a significant amount of money by the gamblers. This, coupled with the fact that owner Charles Commonly severely underplayed the players gave them the motivation to go through with the fix (Pistols). Charles Commonly not only underpaid his players, he also cheated them out of much more money outside of their salaries. The notorious owner has been known to not pay for the cleaning of his team’s Jerseys along with cutting bonuses, not roving any sort of health benefits, and not providing proper equipment. (Lynch 18).
The large sum of money offered and the mutual hatred of Charles Commonly was enough for six men to purposely attempt to lose the greatest of sporting events In the nation. Of the eight men who were offered the money to purposely lose the series, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver turned away from the temptations and played for one purpose: to bring a World Series title to south Chicago (Lynch 2). Rumors began to circulate that the White Sox were going to lose games on purpose (Casino 30). Betting odds began to favor Cincinnati, who on paper, was the lesser of the two teams (Popsicle).
In order to signal that the fix was on, pitcher Eddie Cootie hit Cincinnati leaders hitter on the second pitch (Cook 12). From that point on, everything went downhill for White Sox fans. Throughout the course of the series, almost all the players on the White Sox performed very poorly. As a team, the White Sox had a batting average of . 224 (Albright). Without Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver, they hit . 182 (Scott). Joe Jackson set a World Series record with 12 hits, while batting n astounding average of . 375, the highest on the team (Scott).
Buck Weaver also had an excellent series, compiling 11 hits, 4 runs, and batting . 324 (Scott). The White Sox made the series respectable, by winning the 3rd, 6th, and 7th game of the series in an effort to avoid suspicion (A rule was changed in 1919 to extend the World Series to a best-of-9 series. ) (Casino 43). Overall, the White Sox had 12 errors, none of which were committed by Joe Jackson or Buck Weaver (Scott). In the conclusion of the Series, six men walked away with their payment for throwing the series. Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver walked away without a single cent (Popsicle).
The eight players were brought to trial and were eventually found innocent (Casino 60). Despite being acquitted, the commissioner of the league stated that he will not allow the players to ever play professional baseball again because of their actions (Cook 56). The ten players who were deemed innocent by owner Charles Economies were given a $1 ,500 bonus (Scott). The 1919 World Series was from then on associated with the “Black Sox” scandal. The reputation of the elite group of players in south Chicago was destroyed and wouldn’t be restored for decades to come.
The eight players who were banned by the commissioner would fight for their right to play professional baseball for many years. The commissioner was right to ban the six players who received money from the gamblers. Baseball is a game of love and respect. Without respect, the game of baseball would not have the reputation of being “America’s Pastime. ” People across the nation come together through their mutual love and respect for baseball. Baseball is what got many people through tough times. It provided light in a dark time during the sass.
The six men who threw he series had absolutely no respect for their profession. Unfortunately, they put the game to shame for a period of time. Fans lost trust in baseball and were very disappointed with the game as a whole. Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver devoted their lives toward the great sport of baseball. Through their hard work and education, they were able to reach the highest echelon of all baseball leagues. What’s even worse than the fact that Jackson and Weaver were banned from playing the sport professionally ever again, is that six men purposely lost a World Series for money.
It is almost every young boys dream to win a World Series when he grows up. Six men traded a moment in their life that would be cherished forever for money which will eventually disappear. They disappointed an entire city in order to make extra money. This series showed the danger of greed along with the terrible and corrupt sacrifices people make for Jackson serve as great role models for athletes. They had too much love and respect to purposely lose such a great accolade for money (Casino 57). Jackson and Weaver should forever be an example of true love and respect for a sport.
In the inventory menu you can look at every item specifically, turning it around and zooming in and out as you wish. Overall, the only problems I found with the game was with some glitches, which can be expected in any game of this magnitude. Those glitches are the only reason I didn’t give this game a 10/10. This game has a storyline that draws in the player, allowing for expandable play through guilds. It has the best and most pleasing graphics yet to date, and a record making attention to detail. It’s by far the best RPG Vive played.
