It wouldnt be a $60 or 40(euro) game. it would be additional content for skyrim added on for opening up those already visited areas in the previous games somewhat like HALO did with Combat evolved anniversary. its just old content with new graphics so they only sold it for have.

You'll look so fierce with a loaf of bread in one hand and a broom in the other.

On the topic of Argonians, the few I've met so far in the game I've ever had to kill or beat up or steal from, feels bad deceiving my egg brothers.

It is a bit odd going into Skyrim seeing that 90% of NPCs are Nords. This makes sense and I'm not complaining, but Oblivion was much more "racially diverse".

And understandably, too. Cyrodill is smack dab in the middle of Tamriel, so it would be expected that it would receive trade from all corners and hence all races. Skyrim is not in the middle, and on top of that it is a bit more isolated because of all the mountains, so they would not have as large a variety or abundance of "foreigners."

*****SPOILER ALERT*****
Has anyone talked to the hooded Khajiit walking on the north coast? He cryptically says that all the Khajiit change when they come to Skyrim. I wonder what he means by that.

He is a character in every game and is a bit of a joke. He comments on things that are in the game and often breaks the fourth wall in doing so. He was talking about how the graphics have improved and the art style for Khajit changed.

Did anyone know this?! On PS3 or XBOX:

Open favorites menu
Highlight something
Hold left or right
That thing will now be hot-keyed to left or right

So much easier to switch between mace and bow now!

Reading the instruction manual would've told you that right from the get-go. Just as you can hotkey stuff on PC by hitting a number key on an item while in the favorites menu.

People complained and complained that they were gonna have to mod in a way to hotkey items when the game released... It made me sad.

Just logged in 7 hours of gameplay yesterday and 4 more today. I don't think I'm even 5% through the game either. God what a great game. I'm obsessed.

OVER 60 FUCKING HOURS AT THIS GAME AND I'VE BEEN DEALING WITH THAT SHITTY ASS UP SCROLL FAVORITE MENU TO CHANGE FROM BOW SWORD HEAL EVERY 10 SECONDS AARRARARHG THANKS FOR TELLING ME BETHESDA

on a lighter note. my cat warrior, mr sparkles, has returned to his cat roots. he is now a thief again. i got to level 40 and at that point i realised i wasn't enjoying two-handed, heavy armour running around. one handed weapons are far superior to two handed and much more satisfying to use. also, 30x backstab damage is just too much fun and stealth archery. jesus. sneak is too op

no matter the elder scrolls game, the playthrough or w/e, i always start out as a mage/warrior but end up as a sneaky man.

here's a picture i drew of mr sparkles

I definitely didn't know about that, I'll have to make use of it from now on.

I'm pretty sure it actually didn't say anything about that. The only reason I knew about it was cause it says to press F to favorite something in the menu.
All it tells you is that you can press Q to get to your favorites list.

I'm almost positive it said something about hot-keying at some point in the tutorial.. however, I'm not gonna create a new character just to confirm that. Either way, now you know!

I'm sure it didn't. I found out about it when I tried to change the controls and it told me the left and right D-pad buttons were ''reserved'', and then looked at the manual to see what they actually do. I never actually use the feature though, since the Xbox's crappy d-pad resulted in a lot of accidental weapon changing. Plus I still think the idea of a favourite system I posted several pages ago is much better.

On a somewhat related note, was anyone else disappointed with how pathetic the manual is? It doesn't really matter, but I sort of expect my RPGs to have chunky manuals. I guess the awesome textured map makes up for it though.

found a funny glitch

you know that talos preacher in whiterun, heimskr? well he really got up in my grill about how the khajiit don't have religion and are faithless beasts. that shit don't sit right with me

so i went to the edge of whiterun near dragonsreach, out of sight of the guards but just in sight of heimskr and i used my cat-vision to zoom in on him.. and i shot him in the head with my l33t archery skills. he died instantly and then the guards ran over. the red icon appeared on the radar but i didn't have a bounty. the icon disappeared, then reappeared, then the guards went crazy and slaughtered everyone.

rip whiterun

I want a house with mannequins, but not those mannequins.

...So, are there any houses besides the one in Riften that have mannequins in them?

All houses, except the one in Whiterun, have at least 1 mannequin.

....and I never said it wasn't? Actually they put on that extreme mode at Level 50 or so to help slow people's constant leveling up down so it'll take longer to achieve level 81. Back to the point, I just merely stated level's can go up to 40, and they can.....

Yeah, I would buy the only house without any in it. Welp, Solitude is out of the question because I killed 3 people and escaped jail from there and they're still looking for me, so I guess i'm going to Windhelm or Markarth.

I broke 100 hours gameplay earlier, felt pretty good.

Finished the main quest, Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild, College of Winterhold and the Civil War. I still have quite a lot to be getting done and I'm not nearly bored of the game yet.

Unfortunately I only have 4 achievements left, two of which I'm sure I'll be getting soon, another (the 1000 bounty in the 9 holds), I can do whenever I please because I'm not going to get that by conincidence, and the other which I'm glad they put in, to get 15 Daedric Artifacts, which should take me some time I hope. For some reason after I get all the achievements in a game I lose some sort of want to play it. It sounds silly but I'm worried it might happen with Skyrim, like it did on Oblivion. It's pretty doubtful I will, because I've never enjoyed a game so much for so long.
