    I got a lot of books, some were carry overs from previous games too like that book about Ionith. Then there's about the Dragonborn, about Dragons, How Not to Get Killed (I think is the title? LOL), then the Barenziah biographies (which are carry overs too), etc.

    Confirmed:

    Skyrim saves are not saved on steam as well!!! LMAO

    If you have to format make sure you have your save games backed up somewhere first!!

    Just re-rolling my archer now!

    Yep, all your saves are stored in My Documents > My Games > Skyrim. And if you tweak your ini's you should back those up as well.

    Just tried Skyrim on my old one off 8800 GTS 1024. Ultra played fine at around 30 fps after I dropped the AA down, paired with a 2500k.

    Can you still 'see' from your character's perspective or are you seeing from your character's decapitated head? :laugh:

    Do a sexchange twice. It removed the arrows from my head. So who knows it might give you your head back. In the worst scenario, it might give you something else......... ;)

    He was a Wood Elf. Cicero is human, an Imperial.
    He posed as a "fanatic fan," but not necessarily the one from the game? Or at the least he killed THAT one and posed as that guy.

    Fully agree.
    Hopefully they can release a game changer patch for Skyrim where both multi-core CPU and GPU will be fully utilized properly along with allowing the game to use more than 2GB of Ram. Right now we should have a campaign where we voice our opinion and perhaps per-sway Bethesda . We are the ones that buy the game. Money talks, Bull*hit walks.

    Lol i was just saying that its quite a reference from the previous game, no need to go explain and all, besides that was 200 years ago XD
    Their voice even sounded the same (if not the same voice actor that is)

    I can't help since I haven't done those quests yet, but here's how to do the spoiler bit:

    {spoiler} write your stuff here bla bla bla {/spoiler}

    Just replace the brackets with the square ones like this [ and this ] instead of the curly { } ones I used ;)

    And it'll appear like this:

    write your stuff here bla bla bla

    91% utilization on both of my GPU's so I assume that means I have plenty of room for modding the game without losing all my FPS?

    Big sad.

    Around a week ago I ordered the hardbound prima guide from Amazon. I told them to ship within 4 weeks (I didn't want to be tempted to read any spoilers).

    Now I found this email

    Duh wtf?!? I have been using this same credit card for over 4 years now to send gifts, to pay ebay, for paypal, on overclockers.co.uk, to buy games on Steam, to purchase from gameplay.co.uk etc etc etc....

    And now that I had found a guide for Skyrim on Amazon at a terribly good price it gets refused? :wtf:

    What hurts most is that I didn't check my email within 24 hours as they requested. So my order got cancelled. AND apparently the hard-bound Skyrim guide is no longer available either :cry:

    Edit: It's available but it's more than x3 the price I originally ordered it, it's at $67.49 now... (w..t..f..???) http://www.amazon.com/dp/0307891402/?tag=tec06d-20 :twitch:

    For my original order it was around ~20 USD :confused:

    I'm wondering whether it was true that my bank declined my credit card... I might give them a call tomorrow... :pimp:

    Amazon IMHO has a reputation for being a poor site :/ many of my orders from them in the past have arrived with the boxes considerably beat up, its a shame you have to lose out on the hard-bound version due to an error on their side :/
