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

Yeah, it is. His Game of Thrones cover is available on the sidebar when you go to Youtube.

I think it's safe to say I've grown bored with this game. I'm on my second playthrough
How many hours of gameplay did you get out of your first playthrough?
No clue. I never check that. I picked it up the day it came out and it was a week before Christmas when I started the new one. So five weeks worth I guess. Level 66 both times, the second in half the time. If it was summer right now, I wouldn't be playing it at all.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Btw, there was something familiar in the Skyrim theme to me as I felt I had heard it before. Sure enough, it uses the Morrowind main theme in large part. Oblivion even uses part of it in its theme, and it seems like they're using it as a common theme to represent the Elder Scrolls series. The Morrowind version of the theme has a much slower sweeping feel to it, with the Skyrim version sped up with a tribal feel to it. Jeremy Soule does the soundtrack for all 3.

You can see what I mean with this medley:

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Well, it's news to me. I never realized there was a common theme running through them until I decided to investigate when I found the Skyrim theme familiar. I've never seen them explicitly point out the "Elder Scrolls" theme, only the individual themes for each game.

I just picked it up last week and am currently a lvl 18 redguard and at the college of winterhold. I plan to sink a lot of hiurs into this game for sure, but I'm not sure if it deserves GOTY over Batman Arkham City or Uncharted 3. I'll keep playing and maybe i'll change my mind.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I just started playing this on Sunday and I'm already ten hours in! Very addictive! It plays exactly the same as Fallout 3, minus the VATS system.

I'm surprised the FAQs online don't cover all the quests yet... this game is several months old now. But the amount of content is just amazingly huge. How did they fit this all on one disc?!

I picked a magic type character but the magic is incredibly weak... I'm usually forced to hack away with my sword instead.

Ah, thanks! Perfect! I lost the guy in the crypt when the necromancer summoned all those zombies. I ran and hide in the room while he died because I didn't know what to do

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Has anyone experienced two dragons at the same time? This weekend I was hanging around one of the towns when it gets attacked by not one, but two dragons, each taking turns swooping down and attacking, one of them a regular dragon and the other being a blood dragon. Funny thing is, I was doing a quest at the time and one of the dragons killed one of my quest targets I was supposed to kill anyway. It was freakin epic. Took a good while to get them both killed, even with the whole town on them.

Do dragons just appear randomly? I haven't seen one yet outside of the story mission where it attacks Dragonskeep (I finished getting the monastery and learning a Shout).

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

One time when I was walking towards a location I saw one high in the sky circling around, calling out... it was quite beautiful. It didn't attack or anything, it was just hanging out up there.
