      hopefully that gets your attention, there is a texture glitch (official glitch) if you install to your HD, so hold off on installing skyrim to your HD until the patch is released (which will be soon)
      Wow, that makes sense. I'm not one who complains about graphics, but the textures were seriously PS1-era style on some of the characters.

      Fine. It isn't like Oblivion where the FPS is low at times.

      Anyways, do you guys know whether you get a horse through the main story? Sorta thinking of picking up a horse at that stable for a 1000 gold, which is practically all I have right now.

      **XBOX 360 BUG**

      is anyone else having the issue where they are stuck running in place? i've tried loading every 1 of my auto-saves and manual saves and i'm stuck running in place and cant actually move anywhere.



      **EDIT - FIX**

      Restarting the game didnt work for me, but fully restarting the console did. just a heads up for anyone else now back to playing

      Xbox, I've had it crash on me once. The textures look fine and I have it installed on the HD. Seems to run pretty smooth so far.

      I'm at level 6.

      ya one of the things it causes is blurry/stuttering/stretched textures they said in the statement.

      Thanks everyone! I remember having the PC version of Battlespire and the PC not being able to keep up. Then once the video card was upgraded I remember being blown away by the graphics. That and being scared sh*tless about roaming a dungeon environment in the dark.

      Goddamn this game is so epic.


      I'm going the 2h/heavy armor/smithing route. How are you guys playing?

      Would any of you recommend I start with Oblivion or one of the earlier EC's? Seeing as how I am new to this series and all. Thanks.

      Unless you aren't willing to spend $60, then you can start on Skryim. The gameplay is actually easier this time around.

      Also, don't worry about the story. The events in Oblivion took place 200 years before Skryim's story.

      Kind of what I thought, thanks! Think I'd rather have the newest version even if it's $60.

      Same, but I've been sticking with 1-handed weapons.

      BTW was it just me or did anyone else just figured out there's a sprint button?

      I stumbled on it, because I was trying to figure out how to just grab something, and move it around. Instead of just putting it in your inventory.

      In case anyone is wondering how to do that, you hold E... Since it doesn't tell you how to do that.

      And if anyone is using the 360 controller, it's LB.

      Game is epic so far. So glad I picked up the PC version. Initial install detected high settings for my machine and everything looks fantastic. Gotta try and see if I can tweak it up to Ultra w/o sacrificing frame rate.

      And I just found out there's a quick swap on the 360 version(I'm guessing may not be necessary for the PC version since the number keys are usually for swapping weapons?). Once you're in the favorites menu, press the d-pad left or right and you'll be able to setup two quick swapping weapons or magic spells.

      How's loading on the PC version? A friend of mine told me its practically instantaneous for him. 360's is like 10-20 seconds depending on what you load.

      That's probably what the Favorites option is the PC version. Let's you switch quickly to any item or weapon you set for either hand.

      Yeah I can vouch for that. Load times are practically non-existent for me and going back out through doors into town or Skyrim is seamless. FWIW this is my setup:

      Win 7 x64
      Intel Quad Core i5 750 @ 2.67GHz
      8GB DDR3
      Radeon HD5850

      on consoles you set a weapon to favorite (triangle on ps3) and then up arrow to switch to whatever favorite you want to use. It's like a hotkey

      You should not be getting attacked for just being a vampire?

      Made crazy progress on this today. In fact I'm at a point in the main story where I'm concerned that if I continue I'll lose some of the game's cool random stuff.
