    Update: quite some hours after Skyrim finished pre-loading, there was an update of 2.8MB

    I assume it was the patch which was supposed to be released for all platforms.

    I thought so too until I played Oblivion. Though this was also during my "very drunk" period when I absolutely sucked at shooters.

    I probably will try Tribes:Ascend, i saw a litter bit of video on it and it looks pretty entertaining.

    lol

    Haven't touched the Elder Scrolls series since Morrowind. I really should try Oblivion at some point.

    I'm resisting the urge to buy this right now, out of fear of a consolized game (like ME2) and that I've got BF3 and Football Manager 12 keeping me occupied.

    No point in trying Oblivion, with the massively updated engine, I would just get Skyrim, if you don't want to get it now, wait 2 - 3 months, prob will go on a Steam sale for $25 - $30.

    Why fear that, consoles are 5 years old, the engine they had been using is 9 years old (as old as the previous set of consoles). Consoles sadly were the lead platform on this, but they are keeping mod tools, and with the new engine, even being limited mostly to console restraints, thats still much better than a 9 year old buggy engine they had been running.

    I'm subbing for the factor of thinking more and more about this game! It's eating away at me to not get it.. But, I gotta stay strong..

    I'm really tempted to buy this now, but I'm also using my willpower to wait until the GotY Edition is available.

    Skyrim all the way. Though Oblivion was great for it's time and still stands out by far in graphics and game play.

    I fired it up again today and thought it still looks really good. Of course it was about 2 years ahead of the hardware when it was first released...

    How big is the preload?

    Dannibus as soon as you hear us all busting a nut (just a figure of speech, ladies) starting laaate tomorrow night you know damn well you will cave as you are already on the brink. So you may as well do your future self a favor and just buy and download it now.

    I get my retail copy at anything past 11pm so not too long to go.
    Went into EB a moment ago and the guy handed me the Strategy guide book.

    Beware it has spoilers.

    Same here. I got Quakecon pack from Bethesda some monhts ago and I think that's enough money spent on them this year lol. I also still have Fallout 3 and NV unfinished, and I'm also currently playng Oblivion again with all the DLC (it makes the game kinda easy tho). Now Skyrim is too tempting, but I'm afraid if I get it, I'll never play Fallout(s) or Shivering Isles.

    So, gotta use some willpower in order to resist too, I think I'm going to level up Alteration until I get my Willpower up to 80 or so. What do you think guys, will it be enough to resist buying Skyrim? (I'll use some potions too, gin tonic, vodka martini...)
