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.

It also mentions it in the tutorial at the beginning of the game.

Actually, he is not in any of the games before morrowind.

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

oh god

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.

The only way that I know of on consoles is to turn into a werewolf.
On PC if you do the sex change command it removes them.
