    also I dunno how many people in this thread haven't actually purchased Skyrim yet but we're gonna give a copy of it away so when those contest details go up I guess I'll just put them here

    Morrowind had a lot of mechanics issues and stuff that got resolved in Oblivion

    This game is better than Oblivion is basically every way, but comparing it to Morrowind is kind of a stretch.

    I keep feeling like I must have done loads of this game but then I remember I've only joined one guild and seen half the cities and not found any daedra shrines or dwemer ruins and not touched any war stuff. And apparently the main quest branches? I'm actually starting to feel a bit overwhelmed by the amount of shit to do everywhere.

    Is the whiterun blacksmith-type shop the best place to buy ore and ingots? Seems like I can get like 5-10 iron ingots out of them every couple days, which is decent but kind of annoying. I just want to buy in bulk and make daggers for daaaayyys.

    My weapons are now all Superior, have a dwarven bow, sword, and dagger, and an elven shield. Ended up tossing the enchanted weapons I had because even with their damage bonuses they were coming in at like 10 damage under what my forged weapons were doing.

    Dark Brotherhood seems like the best light armor you can get until you're pretty high on the smithing tree, which is awesome because free awesome armor, but I want to make my own awesome armor.

    So I kinda want this but don't have the money. Any place it's on sale at?

    Solitude.

    Their initiation quest seems awesome, I just got it late last night. You have to go find the ancient, lost verse of a poem buried with a king in his crypt. I'm hoping it turns into a bigger questline.

    I thought it was awesome at first but I've hardly used it except in Really Tough Fights. Even then I'm still more prone to breathing fire or screaming them 50 yards back.

    If you can tell me what stats this effects I would love you forever. I lose using it on weaker shit but I don't know if it actually has an effect on dragons and stuff

    Well I liked the world of Morrowind so much better than Oblivion, with the Dwemer ruins and stuff like that.

    Well I got it whilst fighting a dragon at the wall and shouted it directly at him. It maybe took 4 or so blows from my Legendary Ebony sword to kill him. Usually it takes a good few more than that.

    The NPCs comment on what you're wearing? That's pretty awesome. I know Arcanum's characters did, but that wasn't voiced. And I know a couple of Alpha Protocol scenarios had the dialogue addressing what you were wearing, but... well. That was Alpha Protocol.

    Question: If I'm in the middle of fucking nowhere and there's a nobleman who's stupid enough to be walking alone and I decide that I want his things, will killing him create a psychic link with the guards in the nearest town telling them of my misdeeds?

  • LanglyLangly Registered User regular
    probably not, and definitely not if you are sneaking and you snipe him.

  • KrunkMcGrunkKrunkMcGrunk Registered User regular
    I have to say, the amount of voice acting in this game is... staggering.

    Just put a pot over his head while you stab him and everything will be fine.

    the horse mechanic is kind of annoying

    if you dismount near an enemy the horse will run in and attack
    if you dismount anywhere else the horse immediately starts wandering off

    i hope it gets patched/modded/fixed in TES6

    Killing him and/or any witnesses should clear any bounty you get from attacking and/or killing him

    Sometimes I accidentally hit crouch while in town and people laugh at me for being shitty at sneaking.

    Wow, Wolfskull Cave was a ridiculously cool place. And had one of the hardest fights I've had so far, aside from things like, "Hey, this one beast is attacking you but can kill you in three (sometimes two if they get an execution) hits."

    I accidentally killed a peddler and it wasn't until I killed his horse that I got the message that my bounty was cleared from killing the last witness

    yeah! shit like this is one of the main reasons i always sneak around in games - if you tromp around in heavy armor, chances are they hear you and stop talking.

    i had a similar thing in the last quest for the DB -

    actually, that quest was really awesome for another reason.

    Then I think I'll be getting this game. I never liked loss of immersion when something that makes sense isn't happening.

    Yes! I think that's what I like the most about this game. Bethesda wasn't afraid to put the extra effort into what is basically some throw-away stuff.
