      I was going to wait until I got a new processor, and video card for my PC... But I'm pretty stoked now that the PC requirements have been released. My two 4850's should be able to handle the game easily. Already pre-purchased.

      I'm not into this game, but if you have it, the PC would obviously be the version to get.

      the graphics will look much better, run much better, much more easily patchable and accessible.

      Besides, in a months someone will release a texture pack or something that will make it look pretty good.

      They can never fix the awful jank looking key frame animations though, which is my main turn off from that series.

      Yeah, we get it Quinn. You don't like Elder Scrolls.

      You must be bored... What's wrong? Are you out of repetitive linear hack n' slash games to furiously fap to?

      Don't blame me you're scared of dying in dark souls. If you like Elder Scrolls there is simply no reason for anyone with an xbox or ps3 to not give it a shot. instead, you convince yourself what you see is actually good honest gameplay while you roam up a hill for 20 minutes one shotting deer with arrows while picking up grassroots and vegetables. There are no threats whatsover in those games. The scariest thing is hoping your game will actually make the transition from load time back into the game without locking up.

      If i wasn't here, everything would be so positive and boring. Common now, someone needs to promote the gameplay games.

      Don't even give me "you haven't played this one yet though"

      I don't spend 60 dollars to have a game play itself for me, sorry. you get really upset when I make any sort of negative comment about your favorite games. go ahead, **** on bayonetta or vanquish, I don't care. quality filter.

      It's fun. It provides me with 80+ hours of what I think is enjoyable gameplay. That's it. It's not perfect, it has it's issues, so what. As long as we all have fun playing it, that's all that matters. I play games for fun, not to get my dick hard... I just like to crack a beer, and have a good time.

      INB4...


      I only give you crap, because you treat every game like it's supposed to be your personal gaming equivalent of a Shakespearean masterpiece catered to your specific yuppie gaming pallette.

      I remembered my question:

      Have they made it less limiting with regard to killing randoms? I hated that they wouldn't let you kill anybody material to a quest in Oblivion. I'm fine with the consequences... I just wish I could act a little more freely.

      It's preloading as of 900pm last night.

      Should have left my computer on before going for training in Grand Rapids.

      Purchased through Steam last night, all downloaded. Only 5.8gigs. Took a little over an hour at 1.2Mb/s. Can't wait to get my geek on upon waking up Friday morning.

      Finished my Steam pre-load last night... and I just found out I get to play tomorrow night!!! Steam is unlocking Skyrim at 12:01 EST, which means I will be able to play at 9:01pm PST!

      Steam will be doing a single national unlock, instead of unlocking each time zone at the proper time! Hooray!

      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

      If I want a challenge I'll try to explain to my wife why video games these days are meant for people my age
      Every time someone tells me I'm casual in my game choice, I just answer "Bitch, I beat Battletoads in '91."

      Be mindful of who you follow at the beginning of the game, it will (initially at least) determine with which faction you side with.
      Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden
