Re: Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim

Steam has achievements, if that's your thing. But I know what you mean. It's that little extra warmth you feel when a notification pops up after completing a quest.

Imma hop into that "Can't wait" train as well. FRIDAY, FRIDAY.
Oh I have steam it's just all my friends will purchase it on the 360, most of them are at Uni with average laptops so not much choice on their part. The steam achievements are cool I get quite a few each year with football manager but the overall social hub is annoying, it's not like everyone on PC has steam to compare / chat to whereas everyone with an xbox is there at once.

Minor annoyance and trust me I know it'd look better on PC, play better I'm not soo sure. Hell I made the decision to get BF3 on console knowing it'd be far superior on PC - just used to consoles.

-------------------------------------------------------

Anyway back the Elder Scrolls in general, me and my brother last night were discussing our favourite moments from Fallout 3 and Oblivion, slow falling bears down a cliff as they ragdoll downwards, waking guards that are undressed just to find them in full armour when they get up. Fallout for me was the first real one I played properly (3) and I have a lot of good memories, getting destroyed by deathclaws, taking over tenpenny tower by killing everyone, letting fawks do the final mission :lmao also tranquility lane was a pretty good memory

I could go on and on and on

Re: Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim

If this bothers anyone, I will edit this post to hide the list in a spoiler box...otherwise...enjoy!

WTF is that gif? :lmao

And agree about the Bonuses I just want to be an Orc. They're pretty good in oblivion minus low MP and people dislike them.

Re: Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim

Doing the same as I did for Oblivion - getting the vanilla version on 360, playing as Argonian first (easiest race to play as) and as an 'evil' character. After a while I'll get the PC version and have fun with the mods, then borrow the 360 GOTY edition from a friend a few years down the line and get all the achievements with a 'good' character, difficulty set all the way up.

Can't wait, so excited I'm taking a week off work to play it solid :D been replaying Oblivion to get in the mood, done everything again now except the Shivering Isles storyline. Still got time :)

I always go Dumner but now they're practically a mage class. Sucks ass.

Wood Elf is best suited to what I want to play as but I don't care much for their look.
