That's not bad.

It froze twice yesterday evening and I think 3-4 times the day before... :-/

I'm about 45 hours in on the Xbox and have yet to have any issues at all. Loving this game.

The only glitch I had really was where a Dragon decided to fight a small mudcrab over a large group of Armed guards and myself.

Oblivion guards would always say that they've fought mudcrabs that were stronger than you. This is that mudcrab, apparently.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bought it for Christmas and have been playing it on and off these past few days and loving it.

The combat system drove me nuts in the beginning until i got the hang of it. I really like that you are still taking damage even if you block the strike (prevents holing up behind a shield and striking occasionally i guess) but i'm still trying to find the right weapon/equipment combo.

Currently i'm trying out two weapons but somehow i'm too uncoordinated to play that effectively it seems (playing on the Xbox).. i basically just powerattack and then the character performs a 3 part combo strike which takes out lesser creatures in a single attack.

Am currently at level 10 and still running around in the greater Whiterun area exploring it.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

So, I got the game over the holidays and I think it's quite good. I'm even getting to grips with the interface which I don't think is that bad. I do miss an actual inventory though. The thing that does disappoint me the most so far though are the horses. In Oblivion, it felt like the horses were characters and it was an elegant way to travel. In Skyrim, they've been reduced to being mere objects. I can't see any way of transferring items to the inventory and use the horse as a pack animal. And what's with only being able to ride horses in 3rd person?

The environment also seems much sparser than it was in Oblivion. I admit, I'm still quite early in the game, but it doesn't seem as much a living breathing world as it was in Oblivion, with seemingly less random encounters and less wildlife.

I did have a funny random encounter though. I was walking on my way to Valheim Keep when I encountered 3 characters who reluctantly introduced themselves as imperial officers and who requested 100 gold from me as a fine. I paid it and they were on their way. There were also 3 bodies on the ground which I inspected and they were 3 imperial officers stripped of everything.

So, yeah. 1000/1000. I have had absolutely no life for the past couple of months.

Oh, they're just bandits. I said "Like Hell I'll pay you.", killed them all and took all their armour and weapons to resell them and make some money out of it.

Yeah, I know they're bandits. It's just funny though how it happened. Figured it would be better recounting it that way It made me laugh when I encountered it.


Anyway, has anyone seen this?

That's not a bug, it's a feature!

I think that guy is the same one who did a violin cover of the Game of Thrones theme, which was also awesome.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I think it's safe to say I've grown bored with this game. I'm on my second playthrough, and now, knowing how absurd the character levelling system is and how to use it, I'm at the same level I was when I restarted, but with half the locations discovered and quests done.

I've got combat at very hard/expert and I'm one or two shot killing pretty much everything except dragons. And that's without weapons made using the fortify restoration potion exploit. I actually made myself two weapons that way this evening and it made combat so stupid easy I tossed them away.

The game has a lot going for it but the character skills and levelling leave much to be desired.

How many hours of gameplay did you get out of your first playthrough?
