So... The main takeaway here is that if you recognize Jess in public, do not approach if you value your life.

So that's a real thing? I think I would laugh too much to get very far in the game. Any information on how large of a game this is? Do you top out after an hour, or is this the full Skyrim game? (I'm doubting that...)

As others have mentioned, nice to see Jess. I know she's still here, but is doing more behind the scenes work. Anyway, funny to see a game played this way. Hmm, ... wonder what other games would work better in this format? A courtroom style game? Asking questions, objecting, ...?

@Darko-TDR: Hiya! I'm behind the camera for the most part :) I mainly do VO videos and reviews and editing these days which is why you don't see too much of my face but I'm around!

@tempertress: Your voice is nice, but we also like your mug. You should get it back on camera more often!

It's more like a turn based DOS RPG than skyrim but just played with your voice.

I miss Jess. In the earlier days she was every week there with upcoming games. Now she's not. But Jess is still the best.

@gegeforce: Hi, that's so kind, thanks for brightening my day. I'm working on more of a variety of things these days, you can track down the latest stuff on my Twitter and Facebook if you have either of those but I appreciate the support either way!

@gegeforce: Gamespot went to crap after they fired everyone.

@Sindroid: They had a couple of Mass Exodus, but the last one was 2014 wasn't it? Suddenly everyone got fired.

Wait the Alexa version is real? And it has stalkers too? 😁

I missed Jess. And when you get attacked by a dragon you are supposed to get scared, not overly excited with joy and anticipation. Well Skyrim dragons weren't that scary. At least the ones in Elsweyr have a ton of hit points and attacks that can kill you if you don't block or dodge. But still dragons should be more intimidating.

@michaeldark: I got too OP in Skyrim and remember kicking some dragon ass. Clearly my character was not ready though haha.

I don't think I'll ever be bored enough to play Skyrim on Alexa.

@ahpuck: But are bored enough to watch and comment on a video, about someone playing Skyrim Very Special Edition with Elexa.

@Veetor0_0: What makes you think I watched more than 30 seconds of the video? I really only clicked cause I was surprised to see Jess. I thought she had left Gamespot a long time ago, but I guess she is still around.

I have a thing for Aussie accents so I was going to say I would listen to her read a phone book. Now I see how she treats her fans though! Also I thought, as an American, that "bugger" was an English thing.

@Wraith3: Haha, bugger is totally Aussie too. I didn't want to hurt the fans, I swear!

Anyone out there with amazon alexa how useful is it? What sort of things do you use it for? Is it basically just google search but quicker?

@gamingdevil800: I have a Google Home and it's so damn handy. I use it mainly for my alarm, asking cooking questions, setting timers, playing music, and yeah asking it inane questions like what rating certain movies got.

@gamingdevil800: We have them throughout the house. You can use them as intercoms between each other, which is handy for summoning the kids to dinner. We use them to control various smart devices (Alexa, close the garage; Alexa, dim my lamp). I have one in my car, which is great for streaming whatever song or audio book I want, making calls, or even pre-heating the oven when I'm on my way home with dinner. Basically, it turns your life into Star Trek. And I'm OK with that, even if the NSA is listening in.

@ikcizokm: @tempertress Thanks, it's one of those devices I'm tempted to get but I really ponder on whether or not I'd actually use it if I got it.
