Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim

Recommended Posts

The fact that I somehow managed to get flung up that high should speak for itself. Make no mistake, I'm not criticizing the game for it, it was fucking hilarious when it happened and it's exactly what I'm hoping to see in an elder scrolls game.

You got flung? By a dragon?

I thought it looked like you got dropped

by a Dragon

No, what happened was that I fireballed a giant just to see if I could take him on. He shrugged it off, ran up to me and hit me with his club. The physics engine glitched out and I flew up way high.

or maybe you're supposed to fly that high icon_think.gif

Yeah I've seen that the giants when they club people, make them go up pretty high. I dunno about as high as tensei went lol but that's pretty funny, I guess it depends on how strong the giant is

No midnight release for it here since the store said it could only do one a week and they had to go with MW3. Damn CoD.

I'm taking a half day tommarow and running home to play it. I can't wait to hear more of Soule's ES work.

Game of the year.

lol well that's a unique use. But hey pots won't be everywhere.

I spent an unnecessary amount of today watching IGN AND 1UP stream the game [nonstory spoilers though :/] It was pretty cool. I still can't visualize for myself how major all the changes from the previous ones are. I saw a lot of great bow and arrow action, best use of sneak for battle I've ever seen. I always just ignored bows unless I was feeling lazy, but it almost looks usable here.

Not happy about seeing that I'll probably be forced into sticking to a certain set of skills because even though you can do everything like in the old games, I kept hearing about a soft level cap at level 50 and a hard level cap at level 70. So sounds like no maxing everything...

Everyone did seem to be used to dragon battles by the point they were showing off. Actually giants were more feared...

Giants are just flat out stronger than dragons. I think dragons scale with your level though, since they're such a big plot point/gameplay element, while giants are mostly an optional fight for higher level characters (they're not even aggressive as far as I can tell)

I ALMOST went with Argonian, but after playing around with character creation I was pretty happy with a Nord character.

Also, I feel like leveling is pretty damn fast, at least early on. I did one side quest and raided a small mine and I'm almost level 5. Not that this is a bad thing. The perk system seems pretty awesome, and combat feels better than Oblivion. Still kinda awkward, but fun nonetheless.

I'm going Imperial this time, I feel next time I will be non-Argonian and side with the rebels....

The great thing about Argonian -- FISHING with unlimited breath! I've caught so many fish. There's a lot of them.

Man, I feel like I spent most of the last 4 hours just walking, and probably at least an hours worth re-walking to places because I didn't save. Once the game "closed out randomly", and once I got pwned by a Wispmother in 1 hit and was like "wut".

I probably need to go anything-but-Argonian, since I put in well over 100 hours in Oblivion on my Argonian serial killer character.

Never even started the main quest, instead pursuing the Dark Brotherhood and Shivering Isles questlines, and then ultimately becoming the "Mad Bomber" on my own unofficial quest to assassinate the nobility.

Mods make Elder Scrolls so great. :D

Game is awesome, but the interface is awful, awful, awful. Especially the way the perk tree works, and how clunky/unresponsive the clicking is in general. Managed to pick a perk from a nearby different tree by mistake.

Yeah, the the menus really have a tough time with the mouse. Hell even trying to control with the arrow keys didn't seem much better to me. I'll get used to it though, its not enough to ruin any awesomeness that is sure to be had.
