Been crazy about Skyrim recently.
Just became the Thieves Guild guildmaster and loving my Nightingale armor.
Now I'm working on getting the quests from the targets I'm gonna have in the Dark Brotherhood before joining it to not lock me out of them.

Lockpicking isn't hard enough on PC to make it worthwhile keeping the Skull Key over one of the Agents of Nocturnal powers.

Yeah, I never really got the whole idea behind keeping the key. Once I got past the early stages of the game lockpicking was never a problem except for the occasional master lock that felt like it wouldn’t open no matter what.

But on the other end I never really used any of the nocturnal powers either.


On another note I’ve been really grinding out Civ 5 lately. I just really love this game right now.

Master locks aren't even that hard, not for me anyways. Don't know if lockpicking is difficult on PC or anything but I've never had issues with it, maxed the skill out no problem

Master locks are a pain in the ass... I also haven't even gotten close to maxing my level yet, so that might be the issue

I didn't purchase any lockpicking perks. I save beforehand and tap W as lightly as I can to see where I can progress.
Though, if you progress through the Thieves Guild quests you'll understand the metaness of how such a feat is possible.

With the help of a utility knife and a pair of sewing scissors, I managed to jam a NDSi battery into my poor GBA SP. It was using the market NDS battery at the moment (850 mAh capacity, 3.7 volts), originally had its market battery (600 mAh capacity, 3.7 volts). This one is a Hyperkin aftermarket battery, never opened, and it has an 1800 mAh capacity. I was getting about 4 hours with my old GBA SP battery, 7.5 with my NDS. Currently charging the NDSi battery, will let you know how long it lasts. I'm estimating 20 hours or so, based on the results of other people.

Update: It only took about two and a half hours to charge, a bit worried. Running the system now, 10:26 PM CST. It's got a copy of Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge in it. Unsure why mentioning that is relevant, but I did it anyway.

Oh, frontlight is on as well. It's an AGS-001 unit, only has frontlight on and frontlight off. Looking to get my hands on an AGS-101 eventually with the two setting backlight.
