Looks like my problem fixed itself, so that's good news.

Goddamnit Bethesda, I am now stuck with 20 pounds of useless elder Scroll because I can't drop the damn thing or sell it to the Orc dude at Winterhold.

Did you take it to Parthanaax (sp) and learn Dragonrend?

I don't think quest items weight adds up to the total that you can carry.

Dawngaurd is good so far. This one cave was pretty confusing and took alot of time, as well as finding ( someones ) journal. Im loving the crossbow , and I'm a dawnguard not a vampire.

My main character is in Dawnguard, but I started a new character specifically to turn into a vampire at L10. And I'm rush jobbing it, just used the Speech glitch to get up to 10.

Can you start the main quest if you're a vampire? I'm thinking no, so I should probably get the dragons up and running before changing, eh?

Sorry man, this probably taught you a really important Bethesda game lesson. You always make multiple saves and whenever possible you copy them over to a USB so whenever this happens you can just plug in the USB and load up one of the non corrupt saves.

Its happened to a lot of us one time or another. Ever since I've tried to copy and back up my saves on games that take up a lot of my time. I don't want to lose all the time and effort I put into my games.

Hopefully you didn't lose everything and have to start over, but thats what I would suggest. USB is your best friend with Bethesda or any other game that losing your save loses like 50-250 hours of play. Good luck.

Good to know, and I'll probably back it up on a usb as well from now on. I'm notoriously paranoid when it comes to saves, so I already had 15+ different save files . Thankfully, it wasn't the save that was corrupted, just the game not loading models from the disc properly. It fixed itself after I played another game and then tried Skyrim after that. I do think its a sign for me to wrap up the main quest at the very least once I'm done with the companions (which seems to be lasting forever).

Decided to get back into this, started a new character as my old one got boring. Created a Redguard sneak/archer character, I suppose in retrospect starting as a Bosmer would have been better.

Have almost reached level 35 now without doing any of the main quest. Don't want to have any dragons flying around killing villagers and townspeople.

Did the Thieves Guild quest where you follow their leader in to a Nordic ruin last night, had to fight 4 Draugr Deathlords and a bunch of lower level Draugr at the same time at one point in the quest. Thankfully the guy from the Thieves Guild was a pretty effective tank.

I finally finished my first play through of Skyrim.

I would like to go back and play again (PC version) but also would like to know which mods should I use? And if I use mods do I have to start a brand new game?

My first play through I did almost no magic. This time around though, I want to go full on magic.

Got this game at release for PS3, got to level 25. But since I built my PC, I haven't touched a console since. Bought skyrim just now off steam for $30. Hopefully I can finish it this time around.

Not going to lie, that ending was incredibly underwhelming. Granted my character is crazy overpowered but I walked up to the dragon, hit him about 6 times with my sword and he's dead. No real fanfare and them boom, I'm teleported back to the main world.

The main quest is pretty crappy, so was Oblivions. I think I liked Oblivion's MQ concept better than Skyrim's.. even though it still wasn't all that enticing and was pretty tedious. I think they could have done a better job with the MQ, undoubtably. I always found Morrowind's to be intriguing though.. killing a "god dragon" just isn't as cool as killing Dagoth Ur.. especially when that dragon total blows anyways.

Why has Sony been behind the ****ing 8 ball in all of this?? This is getting ridiculous already. The 2nd DLC will be available next week and for some inexplicable reason, they still don't have a tentative release date with DawnStar.

This whole ordeal has made me think long and hard about converting to XBox once the next gen consoles come out.




On a sidenote: The Hearthfire addition looks pretty cool!
