    There is going to be an exclusive on the game (with more information) in the February issue of Game Informer, so we should get a few more tidbits then.
    AphexDreamer and digibucc say thanks.

    people are already complaining about the fact you can't choose a class at start of game and the leveling system hasn't changed meaning if you want to level up and play god you have to buy another RPG.

    If everything said about the game is true , then it has the potential to be one of the best RPGs. Nevertheless the quest complexity and 'tailoring to you own play style' thingy can lead to tons of bugs/broken quests. I hope this is not the case.

    Bleh I hoped they would get rid of that. It's pretty bad in Oblivion where you get to a certain point and everything drops deadric and you can have unlimited money that way and the game stops getting anywhere after lvl 35. That was the problem with oblivion. I blazed through the content (even the Knights and Shivering expansions) in a very short time. I even completed a fan arc (one that adds an archeology guild something about spires) it was good though well done for a fan made arc. I love TES-O but it was just not long enough for me.

    OMG I FEEL LIKE FAINTING ITS ALL SO OVERWHELMING!!!

    I don't care that I can't pick my own class! (Although I wonder why they would do that?)

    So many bad ass things to take note of but Randomly generated quests! WHAT THE! REALLY! WOW!

    Getting stronger and better at the things that you frequently do, and in Skyrim, getting perks with each level:toast::D

    but the monsters/etc just get stronger along with you. the point of leveling is to make it easier down the road to kill the hard guys. like a classic RPG.

    I would guess though that it's not a 1:1 scaling however. They'd get stronger but wouldn't match you; since at the start it's really 1:1 that just means they scale in a different rate than yours, but they still scale. Just a WMG though.

    I see your point. I guess they make it this way to keep the gameplay interesting as long as possible, and if it's true, substituting the enemies with others as you advance should add some variety in Skyrim. Tbh, in Oblivion, and FO3 to some extent, the most interesting aspect of leveling up for me was increasing the strength so that I can carry more stuff in my inventory without getting encumbered, which happened a lot to me btw, there just wasn't enough space to carry all the fantastic loot items :), this happens more often in the first run of the game since I don't know which items will be of use to me and which won't.

    I was not crazy about the level scaling in Oblivion, but I'll hold out on my opinion until I play Skyrim and see how they tweaked it.

    I am really looking forward to the Skyrim Horse Armor DLC. :roll:

    see i like the idea of it, staying challenging all the way through.

    if it's implemented like it sounds, great. if it's like oblivion was, yeah that's a bit disappointing.

    it wasnt challenging all the way through.

    the problem was that while they levelled, they levelled in a static way. if i was good at stealth and restoration magic and took my time going through places, it sucked dick travelling in the open - these random asses on the sides of the road all levelled their combat prowess, leaving me to get totally owned in combat.

    it forced you to level up and progress in a certain direction, or you'd get totally owned by every random (armor clad with a chainsaw) sewer rat.

    I don't like what I'm hearing about Skyrim. AT ALL. No custom class, perks? PERKS? Apparently every single RPG has to become like ALL the others, generic games ftl. Damn it I liked TES because it was different. And no Mysticism no Alchemy? Even less skills than Oblivion? What next? Leveling based on XP? It looks like game developers are all screwing me up on purpose. I'll have to find another hobby. :shadedshu

    it's not like you don't have options. at least Dragon Age 2 has a better trailer.

    meh dragon age has been pretty much confirmed to take place in 1 fucking town and be around 20hrs long so yea dragon age 2 isnt any better im also tired of getting dumbed down games. Less is not more. It use to be you could truly tailor a character to be what you wanted now its pretty generic to here learn these 3 spells + use this 1 set of armor and this weapon and go forth lol. oh well cant fight the tide of sheeple they are the majority and what they want is easy crap so thats what were probably gonna get. Only saving grace for Skyrim will be PC mod community.
