I've been watching the beginnings of a couple of LPs and I'm left a bit unimpressed. The graphics aren't that spectacular, I do like the double weapon/spell casting, though, as well as the improved level system but judging from the way NPCs react or not it's not much different to Oblivion. I wish for once they would think of improving random interactions.

I'll wait for the first sale, I'm too busy with New Vegas right now...

I wish so badly I could be playing Skyrim right now. But unfortunately I'm a bit low on money at the moment, so I don't wish to spend any more for some time. I'll probably wish to get the game for Christmas, but it's so long to wait for a game I'm fairly sure I'm going to really like. Not least when my friends are talking about it and my subscriptions on youtube are doing let's plays.

I haven't watched any of the videos, since I want my own experience to be as exciting as possible. I said to myself that I wouldn't watch any let's play whatsoever, except maybe if X did one... He now has, and I'm conflicted on whether to watch it or not. He's awesome and hilarious and always gives the story and atmosphere of a game the attention it deserves.

But I don't want anything spoiled before I play. Oh, what to do, what to do...

So I got my dad Skyrim for his birthday. Think of it as payback for getting Jonah Luma Rugby for me for my second birthday. XD Also known as a game he bought for me (To play himself) though knowing my dad he'll probably enjoy Skyrim too, so win win.

Your family sounds awesome, Vago, mine are aliens to video games. It's like I enter a parallel world where virtual entertainment doesn't exist... Unsure

Have to say it's a pretty epic game. My only criticism is that the main quest was, perhaps, a tad too short and the fight against Alduin a bit of an anti-climax, but the game is still great regardless.

Hmmm, It's pretty cool, untill it randomly crashes to desktop.
Done all the other fixes and performance mods though, will have to see if the PC patch does anything.

I've lost track of how many dragons I've killed, I keep running into them when I travel to and fro (which is why I tend to use fast travel more often now).

One of the best games I've bought in a fair while though, have to admit.

I concur with this assessment. Bethesda have outdone themselves on this.

Been playing alot of skyrim in the last few days. Liking it alot. There are quite a few bugs, but they are releasing a patch in a day or so that I'm guessing should fix most of the major ones.

So far no major complaints with the game itself. Just as addictive as oblivion was.

One small gripe that I have is leveling though, however I understand why the went with it.

In oblivion I'd always like to get training inbetween levels so I could get the areas I didn't focus as much on up, however with the system in skyrim, its alot harder to do that as if you have gotten enough skill points to go up two levels, you must go up two levels, rather than eing able to go up one, then doing training, then leveling up again.

Kind of annoying as it means I have to take it really slow if I want to get my training each level, but I understand why they probably did it. The probably did it so that people who try and max out specific skills too quickly end up getting screwed over for it as they'll be very weak in ever other field. Basically forces you to go at a pace and focus on all of the skills you want.

The leveling feels weird, but it makes sense. You practice, and get better. Pick a lot of locks? More lockpick. Play around with smithing? You get better at smithing faster. Fight a lot? Your one handed and two handed weapon prowess will improve over time. It just makes sense, it just hasn't really been done often enough.

It's a neat system once you get used to it. Your exp goes up if your skills level up, and vice versa.

I do like the new level system myself. In Oblivion, you can start off as a 'thief' but it was too easy to become different archetypes because the leveling system was too basic. I understood the major vs. minor skills but, really, they were all easy to level up on which diminished the customization aspect of it.

In Skyrim, my buddy already has a 100 level for Smithing (> 40 hours game time). All he did was fab up iron daggers and fur gloves because they require the least and easiest to obtain materials. Something I don't know at this point is whether leveling a skill up takes longer the higher you go but seeing him at 100 and smithing up Legendary Dragon gear made me tear up inside (from the amount of badassery).

Oh I don't have a problem at all with the fact they did away with the classes. I like that in skyrim you simply start off a a blank slate, with no class and you can just pick and choose which direct you want to go.

My only issue was the forced leveling, and thats only because in oblivion I like to get training in between levels. Still its not any real nuisance and its mostly just me being used to the old system.

@Des, I agree, I'm was just used to the old system. Getting used to the new system.

eeyup.

My only gripe is that leveling up Speech is a pain in the rear. On the other hand, leveling up Sneak is hilariously easy. You know that cave outside Whiterun with all of the bandits? Sneak and simply crouch behind the blind guy after telling him you're his friend. Sneak goes up endlessly.

Daedric > Dragon Stat-Wise... plus Daedric Looks better.

Pain-in-the-ass to craft though, luckily I had some Daedra Hearts on me from the Shine of Mehrunes Dagon (also, mehrunes Razor's Instant-Kill effect is VERY Rare... it's easier to just use something better like other artifacts).

I like to run around wearing nothing but an amulet and Dual enchanted daggers hunting wild game.

I do the same with my Argonian, too.

7 is my guess. Why? Not sure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Had been playing at the normal level for a while, but it was getting too easy, so i decided to try it at the hardest difficulty. Went into a cave, died 7 times. Chaurus reapers don't look threatening, but they hit harder than dragons
