I love Gamer Poop.

We'll bang okay?

I must have watched the Skyrim gamer poops a hundred times over by now and I still can't get enough. Anyone else rip and crop the audio from #6 and now have a track called "Jarl Ballin'" on their iPod? :P

I don't think that Bethesda is actually having much to do with that game.

From what I've heard, it's just another arrow. It's kind of lame.

Werebears are in it, but I'm not sure if you can become one.

You know what would be a cool addition? ballistas and catapaults. I'd love to have a few parts where you have to defend a town from a big herd of giants and mammoths by using those, or maybe two or three dragons.

If anyone is playing on PC, there is a way to use a setting provided by Bethesda hidden from the main graphics settings that makes Tree shadows more realistic. Go to the SkyrimPrefs.ini in your "Documents->My Games->Skyrim" folder, make sure the permissions for all users is set to unrestricted/full, then open up the .ini and go to

bTreesReceiveShadows=0
bDrawLandShadows=0

Change the 0 to 1 in both.

See the difference here: http://www.geforce.com/optimize/guides/the-elder-scrolls-v-s kyrim-tweak-guide#15 on ini tweaks part 2, near the bottom.

So far the game is still amazing after 140 hours. I still have the Civil War, Dark Brotherhood, and Dawnguard quest lines to do.

So everyone, what are your thoughts on Dragonborn so far? I'm taking a quick break from it at the moment, and to be completely honest I think this is one of the best DLC they have released to date. I just wish Solstheim was a little bigger! :/

It's currently downloading on my Xbox as I type, though I'm going to start a new file and hold off on Dragonborn for a while. I find the DLCs much more enjoyable when they're present from the very start of the game.

No spoilers for me -time to leave this thread and not come back for quite a while. lol

Amazing happened. I was replaying the quest "Escape Cidhna Mine" whereas this I decide to go with the "Kill every fucking prisoner" approach. So while I was slashing away like fucking crazy with my shiv and having the healing spell at the ready suddenly I chop a guys head off.

Naturally it always amazing when this happen, and you always feel badass when you do it. But what really made more amazing this time is that I decapitated the guy with a fucking shiv.

I know the decapitation perk apply to most weapons, but how is it even possible to do it with a shiv?

Anyone know how to become a werebear or if it's even possible?

Also, I'm pissed about the lack of spears.

There are some weird ass things I see happen in Skyrim in terms of the special cut scene attacks. Some times a one-hit kill arrow will go into cut-scene mode and miss the target. Some times my weapon misses the target XD.

One time the decapitation animation registered against a guard in Whiterun, but my Axe somehow missed his head during the cutscene and chipped off a tiny sliver of armor from his shoulder blade. I literally watched this tiny little armor shaving be blown away by the wind like a leaf after the animation finished.

HOW the hell that happens, I don't know. But I think ithints that when the decapitation animation registers, the target becomes much more dynamic in terms of what can damaged dynamically. My guess is that certain things in the code can be unlocked so that the targets are ALWAYS dynamic, so that you could normal-attack anyone with a sword and cut off feat, limbs, heads, body armor, etc, because it is obvious that the animations are using actual in game physics telling by how the animations sometimes "miss" the target. I would like to see a mod like this if it doesn't exist.

I'm really enjoying Dragonborn. I got to the temple and literally as the words saying that I discovered it popped up my game froze so I called it a night. So far I've done 2 of the Black Book levels, which are so cool, although the Lurkers and Seekers scare the fuck out of me. And I also fought a Serpentine Dragon. Well, I say that, it was more like a battle. Me and that guy in Chichin armor, all the Draugr in the place the dragon spawns, and then I called in that dragon from the Soul Cairn. It was pretty fun.

I've been playing on Master difficulty too, but seeing as I'm level 75 it's less a case of difficulty and more a case of how long enemies take to die. It feels weird when my Dragon Bone Bow with me fully perked out in archery and with a shit load of archery boosts in my enchanted Dragon Scale Armor, takes like 20 arrows to a Bandit Chief or whatever, so I put it down to Expert and it seems a bit better. I don't want to feel like I'm making it too easy for myself though.

But yeah Dragonborn is reli gd

If anybody else finds themselves outside it, make sure you're prepared for a long fight. That's all I'll say.

When you think about it, Skyrim is pretty much one big metal music video.

My reasoning:

-It's populated by guys with long hair and beards who drink a lot
-Fucking dragons
-You can kill a man by shouting at him
-It has a sprawling and epic story
-It has demons (Daedra)
-The draugr are reminiscent of Iron Maiden's Eddie

Agree disagree?

What is the damage of your bow? I'm using the Enchanted Dwarven Crossbow from Dawnguard and I have it up to around 1500+ damage with my various perks and enchanted gear. if I become a Vampire it's like 3,000+ damage.

Make a shitload of improve smithing potions and gear and wear it while you make the bow. Then go enchant the bows damage after wearing awesome enchantment gear and drinking enchantment potions. Combine this with 100 archery skills and all the perks... and boom.

does anyone know hook to use enb? I downloaded it, and put the files in the directory, and its not working properly. Ill try to catch it in traps, but ill do my best to explain it for know: everytime I start skyrim, it starts fine. But when I load a save game, the lighting is waaaaay off. The sun glare is visible from anywhere outside (ie: behind buildings/walls, in nonloaded houses) and the sun itself is nowhere to be found. I even installed an enb setup....still did not work. Im thinking of deleting everything, and starting afresh.

Loving Dragonborn DLC for the XBOX. Last night I enchanted a sword with a total of 90 points of fire damage, but only at night. 45 damage fire enchantment, and 45 silent moon camp or whatever fire damage, which only works at night.

It depends on what enb the author requires you to use. The author usually describes what version of the enb you need to use.

Ill try to catch it in traps, but ill do my best to explain it for know: everytime I start skyrim, it starts fine.
Does it say some ENB information on the upper left hand corner? It should be doing that everytime.

But when I load a save game, the lighting is waaaaay off.

Do you have a list of mods that you'd be willing to post? Mods that affect weather and lighting tend to cause this. Also, you should probably list your pc specs.
