I'm not saying other games don't have bugs, but it just irked me to see the bad animation that way.
Oh and this was on an i7 4.3GHZ/16GB/GTX580 so I'd assume that is powerful enough for the graphics! :)
funny video however
Haha its ok i dont remeber obilv being so ugly either! but hey its 5 years old now
Well, bought yesterday and installed! Loving it so far, just forgot how in depth the game can really get. Graphics are nice when outside, most things are high/medium with AA off and low shadows. Inside buildings/dungeons etc, it's so smooth, think I get around 50fps?
The opening into the game was awesome, just having a few difficulties getting used to the menus.
I'm not that hot on the whole Elder Scrolls lore. How does this game (if at all) follow on from Oblivion?
Skyrim is a region set in the northern part of Tamriel.. It is bordered by Morrowind to the east, Cyrodiil (Oblivion) to the south.
Although it doesnt directly follow on there are nods to the previous games throught skyrim inthe way of books, comments and characters :)
Two hundred years have passed since the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and it is now the 201st year of the 4th Era (4E 201). The High King of Skyrim has been assassinated, and the threat of civil war looms over the land of Skyrim; one side wishes to secede from the crumbling Empire, while the other wishes to remain a part of it, believing that it is still worth fighting for. To make matters worse, this schism is the final event in a prophecy foretold by the Elder Scrolls that will lead to the return of the dragons under Alduin, the Nordic god of destruction.
Well, I'm only 15 hours into the game and loving every moment of it! Unfortunately my sleep-life is suffering somewhat, which isn't good on school nights. But what can I say? Bethesda have done it again with this truly stunning addition to the Elder Scrolls series. I love the random element that the dragons bring to the game, the AI makes some pretty unpredictable things happen at times - like last night I came across a bandit's camp and then a dragon appeared and all hell broke loose as it completely toasted my enemies. :D It's easily the best ES game (the latest ES are always are an improvement on the previous release and this makes Oblivion look so archaic). It's quick to get into and seems like a fairly easy game (especially if you know what you're doing) - far easier than say Daggerfall or Morrowind, so it should appeal to novice and veteran gamers alike.
Some people keep posting exploits and spoilers, please stop, you don't need to do this. Why try to wreck what is a perfectly fun and straight-forward game for the rest of us, we don't need to know how to cheat and like I said it's not that difficult anyway. :( *rant over*
All I can say is, if you haven't got it yet then don't delay, buy it now! Skyrim is an amazing game and very very well put together. Prepare for hours of endless fun as the Dragonborn! :peace:
I bought it on 360... I don't even own a PC capable of playing modern games anymore, I love my Xbox because Iím lazy and knowing there will be zero setup when I want to play.
Saying that, I had to buy a new Xbox the same day as skyrim as my DVD drive broke. This caused a slightly buggy game play experience.
(The characters that are meant to speak to you in the cart would not and then at the end of the cart journey the horse would continue walking even though it had crashed into a wall!)
But Iím now the proud owner of a shiny black Xbox and the built in Wi-Fi is nice :P
You dont have to exploit the bugs and glitches.
didnt like the UI to start with but getting used to it using hotkeys.
Runs well on my PC as well.
only trouble is it's big! i feel like it will never end :)
