It's Always Snowing In Skyrim

The delightful Zac Gorman shows us the contradiction inherent in playing Skyrim during a Northern Winter.

I say Northern because, you know, it's nearly Summer down here in Australia. Which makes playing Skyrim, with its snow and its snow and its blizzards on snowy mountains, even weirder.


Though not weird enough to wish for an Elder Scrolls game set in a flat, scrubby outback with flies everywhere and a wonky gold coin exchange rate. That'd suck.
