How to find the Amulet of Arkay in Skyrim

How do I find Andur’s Amulet of Arkay in Skyrim?

This quest has boggled me for a couple of hours.  I thought it would be really easy, so I took the quest.

This is a miscellaneous quest in Skryim Elder Scrolls.  And again – it looks easy.

The goal:  Recover Andur’s Amulet of Arkay in Whiterun Catacombs.

That’s it.  Just recover the amulet of arkay, and return it to Andur.

But – when you get into the catacombs, it’s quite hard to find!  (It’s not sticking out anywhere; it’s not obvious.)  I passed it up a hundred times.

So, if you’re on this quest, and trying to recover Andur’s Amulet of Arkay and you want to know “How do I find the Amulet of Arkay?” – just watch this video to help!


 

 

Skryim – an impressive introduction (3 videos)

The Ellder Scrolls V:  Skryim

Direct from The producers of Skyrim, Bethesda Game Studios, these videos are a great demonstration and overview of the game.

Since Skyrim is such a huge game, with a gigantic map, the video can’t show you everything.  But you’ll get one heck of a great sense of how awesome this game looks.

In this video, he discusses all the factors that they took into account when creating this impressive video game.  You learn how they redesigned everything to make this game bigger and better than their previous games of Elder Scrolls.

Got time?  Watch My Other Videos of Skyrim GamePlay.

In my earlier post, I compiled a playlist of over 30 videos of a video game expert playing Skryim, called “Let’s Play Skryim“.  There are over 30+ hours of video game play in those videos.

Or, Spend your time wisely with these videos.

The 3 videos below provides a much more time-efficient experience.  So, if you want to see what Skryim is, how it’s played, and see what it looks like (without having to buy it first) – watch these videos.

Their big motto for Skryim is “you are who you play”.

This video is presented by the game director, Todd Howard.  It’s a great introduction to Skryim and gives you a great overview of what this video game is all about, how it works and more.

I gotta say, the graphics presented in this video overview of skyrim are amazing.

You know how sometimes the video game trailer has a production value close to a motion picture?  And, you know the disappointment you experience when the video game itself plays nothing like the trailer?

Well – skyrim is not one of those games!

The graphics of this game are killer.  When you’re running through this enormous world, the people, the landscape, and all the details are beyond impressive.

Just watch this video and you’ll see what I man.

Skyrim – A complete video perspective

Watch Skryim Elder Scrolls for Tips and complete Walkthrough

I don’t know how he finds the time, but I’m glad he did.

This guy is amazing.  He has a ton of videos of all types of video games, including a lot of good walk through’s of the games as he plays them.  (It includes helpful commentary as he’s making decisions and playing the game.)

If you want to learn how to play Skryim Ellder Srcolls from a guy who clearly knows his video games, then I suggest you check out his videos.

The cool thing about this is that as you watch his game progress, you actually learn that he’s making decisions and answering questions from viewers!

Checking out Skyrim (Elder Scrolls)

Skryim looks like one killer game.

Watching the commercials and trailers for it shows that it’s one very well produced game.

I just rented it to see if I’d like it.

So far – it seems like a massive departure from the simple “just go out and shoot guys” type of games like Modern Warfare and Call of Duty.

Also, it’s not your goofy Mario Brothers, mindless game.

This appears to be a game very-much based on a story that I feel like I should have understood well before starting the game.

A few freinds and I have spent a couple hours playing Skryim and I don’t have a full review yet.

I can, however say that:

  • It looks freakin’ amazing!  The graphics are killer.
  • The story is sweet.  I need to plan to spend more time with this game.
  • It appears to be a game that you need to spend plenty of time with, enjoying the story and the options while unlocking the secrets of the game during the process.

I can also say that I haven’t had enough experience to give a full review or recommendation.  At least not yet.

So, I must continue my tedious research.  (It’s a tough life, but someone’s gotta do it!)

Finding expertise in others.

When I’m new to a game (or anything for that matter) and I need to do a little research, I recognize that other people have forged a path before me.  Others have been where I’m going; I can learn from them to make my time more efficient.

I found a good youtube video from a guy who has a ton (and I mean a ton!) of really good videos of himself playing games.  Check it out here.

So, for now, I’m going to play skyrim in my spare time and will report back.

 

Skyrim a complete video introduction before you buy

During my review of Skryim The Elder Scrolls I realized that I need to learn a bit more about this game from someone who has a bit more experience with this whole “story”.

As I mention in my “initial review / non review of Skyrim”, I don’t have a ton of experience playing these types of story-based games.  I’m more accustom to simple, straight up shoot & kill games like Call of Duty or Modern Warfare, or stupid, mindless games like Mario Brothers.  (Over simplification, of course.  But you should get my point.)

Since I have walked into this game with no prior experience, understanding or research of any sort — I started playing this game “blind”.

I feel like I could use some background and a perspective from a gamer who understands this game genre better than me.

So, I have turned to youtube!

Below, I have shared the video that I’m watching to get some background before I continue playing.

 

 

Left 4 Dead – My Review

VN:R_U [1.9.15_1155]
Overall Rating
Rating: 4.0/5 (1 vote cast)

I played Left4Dead and was very impressed!

Left 4 Dead

My Rating:  4 / 5

Summary:  This game is freakin’ awesome.  It will make you scream, just for the fun of it.  And, you may become desensitized to violence against zombies.

My Review of Left 4 Dead

Wow, this game is amazing!

I just played the campaign.  When I first started, I was with 3 other survivors, and we all had guns.

We were in a room.

I knew which way I should start walking, but as the 11 year old I am, I just waited.

…And waited.

Cause, I wanted to see what would happen.

I wanted to see some zombies that I hadn’t seen before.  I wanted to see an angry group of the undead racing toward me.  I wanted to see….. the horde!  (If you don’t know what I mean by “the horde”, it’s a huge angry mob of bloodthirsty zombies!)

Then, after waiting too much I guess, a Boomer appeared!  That was a big first for me!

And in one disgusting splashing moment — It then exploded all over me! Within seconds, a horde appeared and I was surrounded by nasty zombies attacking me and my animated team.

Thankfully, one of my crew gave me a health pack and saved my life as I was killing the last zombie.

It was awesome, but I almost died.

Pretty much, all I’m trying to say is, KEEP MOVING!

If you like zombies and heart stopping action, BUY IT!

But if you’re a kid who would rather stay home and play brain games, you’re not ready for the action. Way to intense for you!

Oh, and by the way, NEVER disturb the Witch.  She will attack.  She looks harmless, but she’s almost as hard to kill as a Tank.

Another tip:  When you kill a Boomer, push him back and then shoot it because if you don’t, it will explode all over you and attract the horde!

A REVIEW BY EVAN FARMER

A lesson in Zombies — the enemy in Left 4 Dead.

The Horde is hungry

The Horde

The Horde is a huge group of zombies that can come when you just stand around, shoots a car and trigger an alarm, or from boomer vomit!

 

 

Left4Dead - the Witch

Don't let the Witch fool you

The Witch

The Witch is a zombie that wants nothing but her beauty sleep (but she isn’t beautiful), and to stay away from lights. And her least favorite thing to happen is to get shot at!

 

 

Left4Dead Review- The Boomer

Nasty! Boomer bile attracts the Horde!

The Boomer

The Boomer is a zombie that will vomit on you and attract the horde, or if you shoot it and you are to close to it, you get vomit exploded on you.

 

 

Left4Dead Review - the Hunter

The Hunter Prowls

The Hunter

The Hunter will just seem to appear out of the blue, but actually, he has probably been watching you for a while now, wondering when he should strike!

 

Left 4 Dead Review - The Smoker

Beware the long tongue of the Smoker!

The Smoker

This guy has a HUGE tongue! He will just grab you with it and have you dead in seconds.

 

 

Left 4 Dead Review - The Tank

Big, Bad - and hard to kill!

The Tank

The Tank just is this HUGE monster that can throw cars and will kill zombies trying to find you. And KILL you!
