Thread Details

Noticed we didn't have an official thread for this yet so I thought i'd make one...

Just found this Skyrim preview from PC Gamer...

http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/03/18...m-preview/

Looks like some interesting changes will be happening. Including implenting perks from the Fallout series. Interesting notes about the level scaling as well...I can't wait for this game. Big Grin

What platform do you plan on getting it for? For me its a no brainer... PC all the way. I hope they dont go crazy w/ the system requirements though. Dont feel like upgrading my PC just yet.

Voice commands coming to skyrim via kinect! Bigeye

http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/12/tec...im-kinect/

Quote :
"You have your full arsenal of Shouts available using Kinect without having to stop, go to a menu, pick the one you want to use, and go back in the game and use it," he said. "You just say the Shout, and as long as you have the ability, your character will just use it on the fly."
Kinect will also let players use voice commands to arm weapons, activate spells and tell your companions what to do. The commands are designed to be intuitive, and Matt Barlow, general manager of Xbox Marketing, said Kinect support will add more than 200 voice commands to the game, providing a new level of access for fans that goes beyond the controller.
That was the main reason I didn't go mage on my xbox... too much of a pita to change spells...

Gods be praised.

In all seriousness though, 54 hours isn't a lot(for Skyrim).

Ha - yeah I know. That makes it even more frightening in a way. I feel I'll need twice that to complete the game to my satisfaction. And then there's DLC...gods almighty.

I got my house pretty quick too in Whiterun, wanted a place to store all the junk, am a bit of a hoarder. Have alchemy, bedroom and kitchen furnished so far, so have a bunch more containers.

So far playing the axe wielder redguard, my problem has been taking down mages at times.
I'm a self-proclaimed Skyrim hoarder! Whee

No offense console gamers cannot make judgements on first person shooters...or any game for that matter. The only thing consoles have are sports games.

Found a cool glitch. Go to Morthal and start the vampire quest,"Laid to Rest". When you get to the cave part ( Massacring Movarth's Minions), all the villagers leave except Thonnir.
Enter the cave with Thonnir in tow. Once inside the cave, turn around and leave. Thonnir then becomes a "follower". The one advantage to this is that he can't die. If he becomes really hurt , he just respawns.

You can't trade items with him and if you hit him by accident to many times, he will attack you (I had a fun time doing this in front of the greybeards! I kept attacking him and when he tried to attack me back the greybeards beat the crap out of him. My kids and I got a big kick out of it). If you sheath your weapon, he usually stops attacking you.

When you tire of him , go finish the "Laid to rest" quest and he stops following you.
I did this in the beginning of the game and he really helped me advance until I was able to level up. Also, when you attack him it gives you EXP points.

Surprised this hasn't popped up yet on this thread: it looks like DLC is coming this summer:

http://www.bethblog.com/2012/05/01/dawnguard/

http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/...crossbows/

I will definitely be snagging this, especially given their announcement they'd be working on larger-scale DLC similar to Shivering Isles instead of Horse Armor.

Anyone try the Kinect voice commands yet? I I stopped playing it when they announced the addition of it, just so I would still be playing it whenever the update dropped, but haven't had a chance to jump back into it.
