    Anyone else catch the livestream of the kid who stole a copy from gamestop?
    http://www.reddit.com/r/skyrim/comments/lygrb/big_list_of_streams/
    The specific stream isn't on the list, I found it here:
    http://ustream.vo.llnwd.net/pd19/0/1/18/18257/18257838/1_9649074_18257838.flv

    I noticed that the companion wait is broken. The companion only stays for a few seconds, and then runs back over to you.
    It also attacks your enemies when your are brawling to intimidate, which is broken. You have to start the quest over because your hireling killed the npc, because the wait feature is broken.

    Also, they are re-using morrowind's score everywhere. Thank god. It's even in the official gameplay demo videos.

    Pretty large and obvious spoiler warning:
    M'aiq The Liar is making a return. The kid found him in the mountains during the video. Also, the companion guild, are really werewolves. You go on a quest and get captured by bandits in a cave. Your shield buddy from the guild gets cornered and transforms, mauling about 8 comparable level npc's to set you free. It's fucking sick.

    Yeah. So stoked. Ready to chill out a bit and explore and stuff too after 3 weeks of lots of BF3.

    So will this be the official thread? A minor nitpick but the title kind of sucks. Maybe we should make a clubhouse?

    Clubhouse sounds good. I vote that the honor be yours, given that you wrote it first. :)

    I think someone should make an thread once the game is released here in the Games section for discussion. The clubhouses are kind of a cluster*

    Anyone else think that Hrothgar is a lot like Harrogath, and the dragon shouts are a lot like battle shouts in D2? Skyrim is looking like the D3 I've been waiting for, interestingly enough...

    This game will be so awesome... this alone will justify having been born in the 80's and missing the whole 'free love' movement.

    Who's buying this on PC? And who will buy it on the console?
    I think such a game would be a waist of time if played on a console. This game should be glorified through PC gaming.

    I think if you have a pc that can do the game justice you ought to get it on pc. I wasn't so amped for this but as it gets closer im getting more agitated.

    This was probably already posted but it gave me a good laugh for the first 2:38

    Also how do you link a youtube video and make it show in the post?

    I don't think that means what you think it means!

    When does Steam pre-load start and can I play at midnight on Thursday? I'll probably just get it there seeing as how I missed two Newegg sales. :cry:


    yt and /yt in brackets with the video tag code in between which in this case is RMKJ9fDM2mo

    It HAS TO be played on PC, unless the person doesn't happen to own one which will do the game justice. In that case, they should go and buy one or upgrade what they have. Consoles are a last resort.

    Just imagine, 30fps at best, 720p at best, no AA, and "medium" quality, as if you could tell the difference from "low" at that resolution... :shadedshu

    So true and yet people are still willing to pay $50+ for a console version that don't look as good :shadedshu
    Also playing at an upconverted 720p into 1080p is not the same as true 1080p. Anyhow PC gaming is gaining traction and by 2014, it will surpass console gaming which is why Microsoft is coming out with XBOX Next or XBOX 720 in around late 2013.

    At the Toys R Us i work at we have loads of Skyrim already in the backroom.

    A fellow coworker at Toys R Us illegally game someone Skyrim today too, the employee and the customer were in the games section whispering to each other and the employee agreed to give him the Skyrim disk today for a few hundred dollars and that he would put it down as a preordered so the company won't notice it's missing lol.

    I was actually there while they were having their conversion about getting Skyrm early, but i didn't ''snitch'' as they say on the employee.
