    the game is great. if you loved oblivion you will love skyrim. i set it up with ultra detail and reflections on the water and with the gtx570 and the i920 it runs smoothly.

    just a few tips for people:


    you have to favourite an item/spell/dragon shout (shouts hide near your spells, FYI. game never tells you where to find them once you get one) before you can equip it to a hotkey (1 through 8)


    left and right click 'feel' inverted, due to the right hand being left click, so dual wield can throw your brain into a spaz figuring out which weapon you're firing.

    you can mix and match spells, shield, one handed weapons into various combos - i dual wield spells right now, and have a perk that combines them for more damage.



    the game just has some weird oddities like "press Z! use your shout!" with that facepalm moment of not default equipping it, OR telling you how to equip it.

    Why don't the people who have the game move into the Official Skyrim thread so we can start fresh with how the game runs and all things related. This threads getting a little long of tooth at over 1500 posts.

    Would anyone here be nice enough to upload or post a SkyrimPref file that is set to ultra settings? :)

    The game has decrypted oddly enough but the launcher won't work, strange thing is TESV.exe works fine but we're unable to use the launcher to configure advanced graphics so any help would be appreciated greatly :). The RU version is still not released after all this time, there is definitely something wrong.

    Well, I went over to Gamestop and sold all but three of my PS2 games, and they didn't take the console because the controller rattled (even though the thing is damn good). So that put me at $21.something, which is:

    1. below $30 to get the 50% extra deal, and

    2. not enough for me to be able to buy it.

    So I got cash (probably should have gone with in-store credit), which put me at $13.something. I had $8 on me, so I am now at a total of $21 toward Skyrim.

    I took the controller apart and tossed whatever is rattling around, and I was thinking about either taking it back to Gamestop or going to someplace else.

    Ah this game is fantastic!!!!!!!! three hours of pure delight so it was!!
    Seriously really impressed by this!!

    Performance on the other hand is a bit funky at times! Graphics are grand but BF3 runs better than this game!!

    Combat is rather quite good too! Was fearing it would be just the same as Oblivion but it has improved a little bit which is decent enough xD

    Enjoy the game when yee get it lads!!
