      We're not lucky because we can play before consolers can. We're lucky because we have the toolset.

      Mods have always been by far the greatest thing about Elder Scrolls games. It's the main reason why I have never considered playing it on a console.

      i never got too encapsulated with elder scrolls so i wasnt aware of the modding scene, and i'm still not. what exactly becomes available in these mods? are you talking items/skills/enemies or strictly graphics changes?

      They mod anything and everything. It is limitless really. New Weapons, armor, buildings, Quests, islands, cities, creatures, spells. Anything you could possibly think of can be changed.

      Well then you are different, don't buy it I don't spend $60 on a game to die repeatedly just to gain some sorta inner satisfaction that I beat a boss after 20 tries. If you like puzzles that much just do advanced mathematics, they'll annoy the **** out of you and give you satisfaction that will actually benefit you in real life

      it' s an adventure game, I am the hero, I shouldn't be dying every two seconds...why? cause I'm the mother ****ing hero

      The game looks great and is fun so far. I don't like the new inventory system, and it doesn't appear that weapons wear out (or I don't see an indicator of such) so no more hoarding repair hammers But the instructions lend comment about being able to smelt, cook, grindstone, workbench, and tan hides to make more goodies.

      Character creation is standard oblivion/fallout fair, except you don't get to assign attribute points or choose a 'class' or 'sign' (I have not leveled up yet, kinda storing all that up for when I have time, so I don't know how that all has changed). You can play as an orc now, don't recall that before.

      Lock picking is now just like fallout 3/new vegas. Gone is the tapping of the tumblers.

      Sneaking seems more difficult, but while I was on a conference call I just played hide and seek with a bandit for an hour and got my sneak up to level 41 and noticed a distinct difference in how the 'eye' indicator functioned, so it may get quite a bit easier with higher levels.

      The in-game map is interesting, while it's 3-D topo is really cool, I'm not sure it will be easy to read.....

      voice acting is much improved!

      In short, if you are a fan of the games you'll feel right at home, and it won't disappoint.

      Yeah, I got my fill of tougher than nails games when I was a kid growing up with the NES and Sega systems. Now I really want more of an interactive story experience, something to immerse myself in for hours feeling like a hero in a story. Fallout and Elder Scrolls are two series that do that very well.

      If I want a challenge I'll try to explain to my wife why video games these days are meant for people my age

      Be mindful of who you follow at the beginning of the game, it will (initially at least) determine with which faction you side with.

      That's a shame - if you had known Steam had it, you could have downloaded it a week or two ago, and had it sitting, waiting, ready.
