I work in in-bound marketing, I live in the UK (NW England) and was born and raised in Wales. I live with my partner, having successfully reverted him to his gaming roots. We are allowed to share a home with our overlord Zeus, a ginger cat who is actually part horse, part monkey.

Gaming has defined who I am for a long time; even when I didn't play myself I used to watch my parents and brother playing console games. Some (many) of my memories of being a kid have games as a focal point.

Games I remember fondly include Zelda: a Link to the Past, Vib Ribbon, Duke Nukem, Doom, Hogs of War, and many more.

I consider my own first gaming love to be The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind. Not the first game I played but the first I spent time thinking about when I wasn't playing. My last two major PC upgrades have coincided with Elder Scrolls releases. By accident. Ahem.

Why I'm a PC gamer, not a console gamer - keyboard & mouse, modding, community, World of Warcraft owns part of my soul (you're never really free of it, even if you stop paying them)

comment Can i Load saved games of a Steam Skyrim to a non-steam Skyrim ?
Skyrim can only be purchased and played through Steam. Any attempt to circumvent Steam suggests piracy, which we take a zero tolerance approach to here at Arqade.

comment Where and when can Treasure Goblin rifts appear?
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft thanks for providing the link - honestly I wasn't certain but thought I'd read on meta that PTR/beta counted as unreleased but apparently not. Seems like this is the question in which shanodin is wrong about everything!

@Samjus won't be able to play it until after work tomorrow! I really thought D3 patch releases were consistent across regions!

@Samjus that'd explain it then. My version is still the previous version because I run the EU version of the game.

Voting to close because this refers to content which has not been released yet.
