Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Skyrim] & [The Elder Scrolls] Please post in new thread.

    Anyone get a key from that site I listed earlier? http://www.intkeys.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=74&products_id=314

    Still debating whether or not to purchase from there, but if people have gotten codes and successfully pre-loaded them, that should answer my question on the legitimacy of the site (or legitimacy of the codes, at least).

    I took a leap of faith and ordered from them. I have not gotten a code yet, although they say that it should arrive on the 10th or 11th.

    I also ordered a key from them and I'm starting to wish I had just paid the $60 on steam. The keys for this game are almost certainly russian. Its a multilanguage game so I'm not worried about that, but you supposedly have to activate the game using a russian VPN and since the steam appID will be russian any patches and DLC you get will be russian as well. This is definitely going to be my only experience dealing with one of these companies as it just isn't worth all this aggravation.

    For those who bought from D2D, have you gotten your code yet?

    Deciding if I want to order from them or steam. If ordering from D2D means I won't get to preload then the $7 savings isn't worth it to me.

    Sure did. They emailed me last night.

    It's more like a $3 savings or so savings, if you happen to be taxed.

    Bought from D2D and preloaded last night.

    Thank god I'm not a FPS fan, or right now I'd have a head explosion from so many good games at once. I'm already conflicted enough between my old school adventurer soul and my psycho troll pimp selves. I'm thinking I might have my Saint's Row boss LARPing Skyrim.

    I figured as much. Just was considering that there might be some hang-ups there. DCUO has similar engine/content issues. They can't actually do certain things due to limitations of the engine, according to the original dev team.

    Of course, the original dev team was certifiably full of shit on many things, so there's that too.

    Did anyone else pre-order from Newegg for $48? It might take until Monday for UPS to show up, but it's good to save $12... Not in a hurry to play at all, let me tell you!

    So.

    Most important question that I haven't seen asked yet:

    Does it have ladders?

    Hrm, anyone know if the One Handed perks will work for unarmed combat? Haven't been able to find much solid info on hand-to-hand, but those are the only perks I see that look like they might work with it (aside from the heavy armor perk).

    Imagine that. Too bad I'll be otherwise occupied. :winky:

    Hey there buddy. How you doin'?

    I'm a huge Knights of the Old Republic fan, and a fan of RPGs in general. I was content putting thoughts of The Old Republic in the back of my mind until launch. Every crevice of the rabid hype-sponge inside of me has been too busy soaking up bits of Skyrim to even remember Star Wars is a thing that exists.

    My only day off until next Wednesday is Saturday, and I was just lamenting what kind of horrible Sophie's Choice scenario befell you two. I wondered if I could even make a reasonable decision given those options.

    Then I checked my e-mail...

    Fucking seriously!!! It had to be this weekend guys?!? You choose to give a bunch of RPG nerds free early access to a game that you've poured obscene amounts of money into, and limit it to the launch weekend of one of the year's biggest RPGs? Have you lost your fucking minds?!?*

    *For context, I am currently pacing back and forth in front of my desk while yelling this at my ceiling. First. World. Problems.

    Pre loading complete, I havent been this hyped about a game since Red Dead and I dident have five days off to play that one.

    Less than a day to go, sleep, work, then, adventure!

    So according to the requirements I'll be playing on Medium/High which will be good. BUT I'm not sure if that takes my resolution into account at all.

    I've got 6 gigs of RAM, an Intel Core2 Quad Q9400 @ 2.66GHz processor, SLI'd NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240's those have about 1 gig of ram each and are DirectX 10 capable.

    My monitor is a nice 1920x1080 one.

    I guess that means the NA region will be the last to unlock. Poop.

    I did not realize the launch was staggered for regions, I thought it was 12:01 EST globally

    They are being unlocked by region, but I always thought Australia was behind the USA in time... since the dateline is in the opposite direction. Weird

    EDIT: Also, can I just log into steam's AUS server and it will give me access early?

    Future sucks then, games are too expensive in the future.

    I'll happily stay in the past with my 50-60 dollar games.

    Its about 10 minutes away from 3pm Thursday in Auckland, New Zealand... Presumably that would be only 9 hours to go on Steam

    Unfortunately in my case I am just picking it up from JBHifi tomorrow.

    Otherwise I would really be mocking you all :P
