How are you going to have PVP in this game? Given the kinds of mechanics they run. The only way it would work is to completely simplify the whole game.

I don't see any more issues with it than with GW2, for example.

And to be fair, we only really know the basics of the basics in the alpha stage, so who knows what it's gonna look like in the end.

Personally though, I hope it delivers in PvE, I can't see myself getting hooked on any form of MMO PvP, for that I got DOTA2 and it's superior to any form of MMO PvP I've tried (and I've tried a LOT).

I`m going to do a play-through again and I`m trying to decide what limitations to use.
That would be cool. One of my favorite things to do in these games is come up with theme characters and stick to it. In Morrowind, for example, I built a Samuel L. Jackson character and had to justify each of the major and minor skills with one of his movies, so I would pick Long Blade [Star Wars], Speechcraft [Snakes on a Plane], stuff like that.

So Dragonborn comes out on Tuesday. I for one can't wait to get my nostalgia on on Solstheim.

I'm surprised this thread is as dead as it is, with a new major DLC coming out. Dragonborn looks sick, and I can't wait to play it later today.

I have it. The main quest is pretty disappointing, but other than that I have no real complaints.

Been playing the new DLC and have been mainly just exploring the area. Pretty cool environment.

Does anyone know if there's any way to locate a weapon that you placed somewhere you can't remember? I dropped the Staff of Magnus off in some chest to take a new weapon, but now I see I need it again for another quest. I've already checked all the chests in my houses, so I need to somehow pinpoint it somewhere exactly in Skyrim, hopefully without having to go around randomly opening chests.

So I'm gonna start playing again soon and beat all the DLC with my main character. After that though I'm gonna do a master play through but was wondering what are some good build to have fun with ? Wanna do something I haven't done yet like : 2H , Sword and Board, just stealth w/ no magic , etc. I have a stealth archer guy , just magic guy , and 2 1H guy .

Also would like a race that I haven't played . I have a wood elf , dark elf, and khajit right now.

Try playing an actual assassin, i.e. no bows, no real magic (except restoration, you'll need that if you get into an actual fight) and daggers only..it's much more fun since the AI is dumb as all hell when it comes to bows and if you join the dark brotherhood and thieves guild, you really have to pay attention to quests to finish them stealthily with no bows. If you want a more in your face adventure, I recommend 2hd or sword and board Nord, it makes you feel like you belong to Skyrim, especially a 2 handed warrior.

If you placed it in a non-personal chest, good chances are it's gone. Consider using the console to get it back if you really want it.

GOTY probably won't be announced until after they fix the Ps3 version most likely..they'd catch way too much bad press by announcing a GOTY edition and not include the Ps3 version/include it and it's still broken.

$20 bucks for DLC...

Is it worth it?

I think my person is still a vampire from Dawnguard too so not sure how this would play with that same character.

I have only played some of Dawnguard, so can't comment on the other 2 , but Dragonborn won DLC of the Year ( which might say much but ) and the other little DLC lets you build houses and stuff which is really cool. I'm gonna buy the other 2 soon .

I would say 100% yes, if you enjoy Skyrim .

I didn't mean the game, I meant the main quest...lol.

There's overhauls/addons to Morrowind now that make it look better than Skyrim, it's pretty insane.

Just got this game as an early xmas present from the sister.

Have to say, beautiful game. I'm already dreading the loss of a social life that is going to be coming with game.

Darkelf, focusing on magicka. I'm level 7 now and am still debating wether or not to go pure caster or 1H caster.

Started playing Skyrim again. I have now finished the main storyline. As always, the main story line in Skyrim is week, and the final boss fight was really disopointing. The fight was easy. Despite me using that damn storm weather shout accidently at the begining of the fight, i could stand there for 200+ seconds untill it cooled down with no problem. I just used heal (the first healing spell, with only 100 mana) and he never even got close to kill me. When i used Dragonrend, my attack, with my sword, took like a 1 cm of his healthbar It was sooo easy. The game has been seriously dumbed down. Still love it tho, but there is no challange when you are level 30+. Everything is so easy.

So now i am trying to get all the trophies. The game got stuck at loading screen forever so i turned it off and did not play it for two days. Tried it again yesterday, and after i finished the quest "A daedra's best friend", the game froze
Two serious issues i never had before. And right after i finished the main story.

After spending so many hours in this game, i feel like the next TES MUST have:

1. A new magic system.
The magic sucks, it is just like all the other games before Skyrim. It becomes boring and old quick. A new magic system with more elements (Water, wind, time, arcane etc), 100+ new spells, better use for magic and maybe even an option to craft our own spells, like in magica.

2. A more complex weapon and armor system.
A weapon system similar to Diablo/Borderlands. Bring back what Morrorwinds armorsystem where we could have two diffrent gloves etc.

3. Bosses
The game does not have many bosses, and the bosses are just regular fiends but with more power. Give us more cool bosses!

Today we’re excited to announce that, next month, we’ll be releasing all of Skyrim’s add-on content on PlayStation Store. The 1.8 title update will also release just prior to the launch of Dragonborn. We’ll keep you posted as release dates get finalized both on our end and with Sony for each and its various languages. Last but not least, each add-on will be 50% off during its launch week on PSN.
