Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

Ever since I heard of Skyrim coming I completely put it out of my mind until recently and didn't even think much about it at all until the last couple days despite loving Morrowind and Oblivion (and daggerfall too)

Then just now I realized I am actually excited for this game.

It's been a long time.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

Thanks for the answers, guys. Magic sounds pretty badass, so I think I'll give it a shot in Skyrim.

Should I go for a High Elf, since they're the "magic race"?

Dunmer (dark elf) are probably better. Since they also have proficiencies in melee combat, so you can make a battlemage.

I just saw this for the first time, and I laughed all the way through it.
Freaking love mods.

Siphoning a copy of Skyrim at 3MB/s.
I'll be trying it out soon. Then judging if it is worth my investment (I wasn't that fond of either Oblivion or Fallout 3. Entertaining to some extent, but too repetitive).

Been playing a Breton for a few hours now.

This game rocks.

I'd say either a high elf or dark elf would be the best choices

BTW you suck Pani, I still have to wait another 11 hours

I believe he said he wanted to play or was thinking about playing a full mage.

If that's the case no need to half ass magic and melee at the same time and he should go with high elf or breton.

Personally I prefer High Elf for Mages.

High Elves are snooty tightwads and they look like they're from the Simpsons. Roll a Breton. Dunmer (dark elves) are a pretty well balanced race (as well as being a badass race in general, lore-wise) and do reasonably well in hybrid classes.

In all seriousness though, I usually stayed away from High Elves because of their racial weaknesses. In the past two games they have had a natural weakness to all types of magic making them outstandingly flimsy in combat. Their increased magicka doesn't really make up for it.

I always stated away from Bretons because they looked really stupid. I quite liked the very tall naturally disease resistant fellows for being mages.

and I never feel like it's good enough playing a hybrid.

I went with an Imperial... 'cause their faces were the smoothest. >_> Got the PS3 version (due to dodgy laptop paranoia), the reversible cover's pretty.

I feel tempted to leave my character wood chopping whilst I sleep, but I'd feel like the biggest cheapskate.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Buggier than a lollipop in an antfarm

Just spent the last 5 hours Khajiit-ing.

Feels good man.

Very happy with this game.

I mean sure, your abilities are watered down once you hit a high level, but rolling a Dunmer Nightblade was the most fun I've ever had with Oblivion. I eventually got my speed all the way up to 100 and I would run around the battlefield tossing magic spells between hacks of my dagger. It was awesome.


For some reason I'm starting to get different attitudes toward the races now that I'm not playing a Dunmer. It's strange, but now that I'm getting into the mindset of playing an Orc I feel like I don't hate Khajiits as much. Maybe that'll change once they start snarking at me with their stupid cat faces but the urge to play Skyrim with the objective of killing every Khajiit in the game is slowly fading.


Also, I just discovered the PC's interface is the same as the one from the console. Nothing mods can't fix, but this still pisses me off to some degree. If they spent so much time developing the perfect GUI they could've considered the platform half their audience plays on. Nothing mods won't fix, but still, it makes me mad. Makes me want to murder Khajiits.

I'd originally intended to play a High Elf or a Dark Elf, but at the character creation I switched my mind and went Breton, because I thought they looked a lot nicer.

Actually, based on Steam's actual countdown, it looks like we'll have it at 11pm tonight.

Unfortunately, I'm covering somebody's 7am shift tomorrow, so I'm going to be crazy by going to bed early tonight and getting up at 4am.

Not fair, Aussies! I have to work 2:30 to 7:00 tomorrow. It's a short-ass shift, but the whole time, I will be perseverating over buying this thing. SDLGSLGKJ
