this game is everything I wanted in an Elder Scrolls game.
the dragons are absolutely amazing
gotta say, the shouts are one of the coolest things about the game
FUS RO DAH!!!!!
YOL TOOR SHUL!!!!!!
I'm only in the beginning of Skyrim, but I like it more than Oblivion. I never could get into it too.
Morrowind is still the best in the series.
It better then Oblivion, much less Generic.
This just adds to my frustration with the game. I feel like I'm almost getting trolled by the company with how poorly everything is localized for PC use. It's almost a mini game to figure out if the game wants me to click on something or hit enter, and every time I feel like they're saying "fuck you pc user!" I get consoles get a bulk of the money, but come on! How do you actually get worse at something like this?
What also makes it worse is I just finished Deus Ex which has almost no consolitis problems in the interface. I really hope someone makes a mod that creates a usable menu system.
I am on the PC and have no issues with the layout, its kinda eligant.
And I had to run away from "Kenevil the tongue" or something, he was beating the crap out of me, I will return when more powerful. Never happened in unmodded Oblivion.
Really loving this on the Xbox dual flame Mage so far
I keep waiting for my character to go MUAAAA'DIB!
Its funny, I played the start of both Morrowind and Oblivion and could never really get into either but im loving Skyrim so far.
I'm trying to decide if I want to get Skyrim.... I got Oblivion, but like many others, was never really able to get into it. I just got..... bored. However, I'm thinking about trying it out again now that I see how many people are calling it an improvement over Oblivion.
If you have a PC, I am sure someone will make a mod for that....
Should summon a sand worm or something.
Don't worry; there are mods for a decent PC interface on the way. I'll be happy to announce them on this thread when they arrive.
See, that's why I'm leaning towards waiting until I get a new PC before I play Skyrim. The modding community simply rules.
I'm sure this doesn't affect most people here, but apparently this game is basically unplayable if you have a standard definition TV. I read some reviews over at amazon that said with SD a lot of the HUD won't display. Maybe that's just their console settings, though.
Don't know about the PlayStation or WII, but XBox automatically adjusts for the kind of TV being used. I'm thinking it's more of a simple issue of resolution. Either that, or the developers screwed up the HUD location and didn't take screen size into account.
Epic fail, if true. Wow.
Thats also true of Mass Effect 2, or at least was when it was first released....
people still have CRT televisions?
in other news, a cool thing happened when I was playing last night
there's a place called Bard's Leap Summit and there's a huge waterfall and some ancient Nord ruins at the top, the Bard's Leap is a wood plank out over the edge
if you jump down and survive a ghostly bard shows up and says something like "it's been a long time since someone's made the jump and lived, look what happened to me blah blah blah"
and then you get points to speechcraft
just another in a long line of 'wow!' moments
I just started playing last night for the first time. Holy moly, this game is fantastic. I warned my wife that she won't be seeing her husband for a while ...
one of the best things is the variety in the dungeons
yeah, they still use a lot of the same building blocks, but unlike Oblivion they're all different
and they're great fun to explore
