guys, GUYS!

please remember that this game was made for consoles in the first hand.

you have to expect **** like the UI failure and the bucket thing when Bethesda ponder to mainstream crowds/consollers.

its just how the RPG market rolls nowadays.

It's not a bug, it all makes sense once you find out what's inside the buckets:

So good game, except the UI, which is the product of satans stepmother. Seems about right...


Yeah. UI-wise this seems to be a bit...disappointment.

Guess I won't be playing it as long as Oblivion. Or Morrowind.

Indeed, the User Interface is terrible to say the least and voice acting still sucks as always but apart from that the game is really fun, a huge improvement from Oblivion.

I agree the interface is clunky, but how can you possibly say the voice acting sucks? :| I think it's excellent, and it was good in Oblivion too, the problem was all of it was done by a handful of voice actors.

But despite the controls, the game is impressive and enjoyable.

Skyrim has a lot of voice acting, possibly more so than any other game, so it is reasonable to expect some lows and highs. I'm quite content with it, and there is lots of good voice acting in leading roles.

But voice acting in Oblivion was mostly poor, some major characters excluded. Or maybe they just had terrible voices.

Controls in game are fine, interface is not.

Oblivion had three of the sexiest voice actors alive (Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean, Terence Stamp), it's a shame they (their voices) didn't have much part in the game. And no wonder the rest of the cast paled in comparison. :D

Heh, me and another guy bought the game for a friends birthday and his GF said she was expecting us to get him Skee-rim.... we both corrected her and said it was Sky-rim...

I hope we weren't wrong...


Oh, and apparently his GF is the one playing it the most, because her PC is better (his best one is a laptop with a single core... still runs the game though).

Fapping on guard duty is a no no, unless you're one of those warriors from Hammerfell. They've got curved swords. Curved. Swords.

Is it true, what I hear bout there being so many items in the game that the memory actually gets eaten up and that there is nothing to be done about it? :D

I've been reading a ton of forum topics regardin Skyrim. At least from The Escapist Magazine.

I love the game (it has WEREWOLVES, something HOMM are incapable to include!). And has spent an insane amount of time in it. Played and ran trough the main story with a lvl 36 Nord. Now trying another path with a Dark Elf.

Some NOTABLE problems, quircks, lousy features occours with the games different versions. I got the 360 version, unpatched (due to lack of internet connection at my apartment)

PS3:

Sadly this is true, at least for the PS3. Somehow the game runs worse than at the 360 8| If you disturb the placement of ALOT of objects in the game world, the checklist the game runs with where and how objects are placed and interacted with overloads and get clusterf*****. In some cases it dosent even help to relaod or restart.... I gotta find the info about it......

I may have not encountered backward flying dragons but I have yet again to meet the awesome elevating mammoths again :D

Also mammoths are BOSS

Also check out NPC Wars videos of Skyrim, just awesome!

I'm also having a blast with the game, currently a level 32 dark elf specializing in destruction, sneak and one-handed weapons. The dragons are easy to beat, it's the giants and their herds of mammoths that I'm unwilling to tackle!
