anyone played it yet? just got it last night and i killed a dragon alittle while ago…its so realistic that the dragon actually tired me out :stuck_out_tongue:


yeah i played it over the weekend. the graphics environments remind me largely of RDR.

my only complaint with it is the main story is faaaaar too short. didnt take that long to finish

Yeah… The main story was a tad short… but there’s so much to do!
I’ve only run three or four dungeons…


My only complaint is that the final boss battle left a lot more to be desired… the first time you fight Alduin was epic. Raining fire. A dragon helping you out. You’re on top of a mountain.

But the final boss battle was a lot less impressive. You’re fighting in a field.
The only visually epic part might have been the sky, which I never really saw since you’re in a bowl of mountains… and I wasn’t really looking up.
The final boss battle should have been a lot more epic… maybe on a volcano… or IN a volcano…

lol damn stupid spoilers!!! isnt there other quests you can do afterwards?

if you take your time the main quest can go on for ages…i like to deviate from the path ALOT. I go into caves, fight people, kill zombies, steal treasure, then get back to the quest :smiley:

I wanna know how soon we can we can mod it with our own objects and animations - I think doing this in Morrowind is how I discovered blender in the first place. Boy!

Skyrim is infinite, it has algorithms embeded to generate an infinite amout of “random” quests.

well i’d suggest doing the guilds first. after i finished the main quest i started a new game, and now im doing the guilds first. especially the mages guild / college. the staff of magnus is a fairly decent weapon.

yes indeedy! that and you didnt get to actually ride the dragon there. it was just a loading screen. i was all excited and then all of a sudden, ive arrived at the destination.

the horse mechanics could have been improved. their speed is no faster than walking, from what it seems. and its a pain in the arse when the carrageman / skyrim taxi doesnt go where you need to go.

this remains to be seen, you cannot record ‘infinite’ npc conversations that lead to those quests so i think at the moment, its just marketing spin.

well in any case, i believe i will be spending countless hours defining my character…sadly im a little confused as to the character charts…remember how you old character leveled up? well i dont know how to level up in this. I mean i do, but what should i put it in? what feels better to me? what do the little points underneath each one mean? confused

i found the levelling up is far more streamlined in skyrim. it doesnt take forever like in oblivion. and i like the new level interface. all you have to do is chose which perk you want and its done.

i like the quickness of leveling, but i hate just choosing one, without seeing the effects of what choosing it can do. It would be nice to see the effects of our actions ;D

Whenever you look at the skill trees, there is a description below the skill that tells you what it does.

no i understand what the skills do, its the little points system below what it says it does. Has anyone noticed this? what does it mean?

I’m not quite sure what you mean, but I’m guessing you are talking about the progress bar visible below each skill tree. It simply tells you how good you are at a certain skill. When you look at skills that you can spend your points on, it will say something like “Requires 25” or “Requires 40” or something similar, that 25 or 40 or whatever is the skill required to be able to invest your points in new skills i.e. the skill level shown below the skill trees. The game will notify you when your skills increase, by showing the progress bar and a text that says the skill has increased.

I love skyrim, even though im playing it in french. it was almost 50% loaded, and all of a suddne my ps3 shut off, turned on again, and then loaded, this time in french. surprisingly enough im still making progress. :slight_smile:

must suck for the french. Im playing computer version P"
anyway, I figured out what the numbers i found mean. When you go into a skill tree, and you are looking at the skills inside, look at how many points you need. I realized that this means you need a skill of at least that amount of points to make the skill available. I didnt realize this before.

I love the setting, but I’ll wait until the price goes back to $15 and see if people still think it’s good then. Like I do with every other game.

now THAT’S patience!

I heard that the combat in Skyrim is kind of bad?? Love the gameplay in Dark Souls more…

the combat actually is great, but i have issues with the weapon switch system. You have to open your stuff, switch weapons, then do it all over again. And sometimes it makes it so one thing constantly stays on a hand, and you cant make it go away. Although these just may be computer glitches. I wish they still had the hotkey circle for weapons you use often…
