Anyone pick this up yet? So far I'm loving it. I'm going to lose days due to this game.



Am I in Horseville? Because I'm hearing nothing but naysayers!

Downloaded on Steam yesterday. Will start it tomorrow. I will say I have no idea what race I will play.

Yep, started out as a wood elf planning on using archery a lot, realized I'm terrible with bow and arrows. So now I'm a high elf that shoots fire from one hand and ice with the other.

Picked it up on Wednesday. After emerging into the open world I decided to take a saunter around rather than head straight to the next objective. A few hours and a whole lot of petty theft later I realised I'd already lost a night of my life to the game. It won't be the last.

It still suffers from the old Bethesda issue of having static, emotionless characters doing all the exposition and those are some ugly fucking elves (no offense MUTigerMask!) but those are minor quibbles adrift in a whole sea of awesomeness.

I've never played a game where it's so easy to get distracted. I'll be on my way to a quest, get distracted by a side path or an upcoming encampment and then I realize it's 2 hours later and I haven't made any progress. That's a good thing in my eyes.

I just realized that in the starting area there are stones where you can select your specialization. Once you select your specialization you gain skill 20% faster in that field, thereby helping you level faster. I wish I had discovered this at level one, rather than level 15...

You're not kidding. I lost over an hour in just one building of Whiterun chatting to locals and reading up on the history of the empire - partly to figure out who I want to side with, and partly just 'cause.

Alas, making with the chatty chat doesn't help with one's kanye-fication and my humble level 5 chap - having thought himself quite the badass as he fireballed to death any rouge wolves or soldiers he stumbled across - was whacked into orbit and out of life with one hit from a giant.

Despite my swift and grisly demise, I *love* this game.

Okay, I work at GameStop and they let employees check out copies of games. Having played, I must buy not only it but also a new Xbox 360 to play it on (been playing it at the girlfriend's much to her chagrin). By far the most immersive game I've played in years. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii is good too, but I've already seen the flying around floating islands in Avatar and the blue chick hopping out of my equipment in Halo. Arkham City can be beat in a matter of days. GOTY, hands down.

Breton, in heavy armor, throwing lightning around like nobody's business, and I figure with the Wards, Ironskin, and a healthy dose of Enchanting and Smithing I will be nigh indestructible.

(NOTE: immersive is not accepted by the local spellcheck but is confirmed on dictionary.com)

Fun game, and I love the customization on the PC version through the use of mods. Plus I can use my 360 controller, so it's the best of both worlds.

I was on my way to trying to become a destruction mage, and now find myself as an Level 85 pickpocket who can literally steal the clothes off of someone's back. Friends are telling me I should go thief, but I think I'll still work towards becoming a mage and just steal from people for funsies.

I've downloaded a couple of mods so far, pretty neat!

I finally got to rent this, and I will have to buy it. I like to call this game Fallout: Fantasy World because it really does feel like the Fallout games. I only wish that my companion Lydia was as much fun as Veronica and ED-E.

I went with Imperial as I wanted to be good at combat mostly (with some magic thrown in). I like that there are so many factors in how you can level up; it almost forces you to change up tactics as you go. I actually don't use magic all that much (other than the Shout thing), so I need to work on that as I go.

When I can wrench the controller away from my fiancee who is addicted to the game, I'm running around as a Khajiit with a focus on archery, sneak, locksmith, speech, light armor, illusion, and alchemy. Oh, and a little bit of smithing on the side (it's a great feeling crafting pieces of jewelry on the cheap and then selling it off for lots of coin to one of the merchants). The game is friggin' amazing, and this is coming from someone who absolutely loathed the previous Elder Scrolls games (never played Arena, but I've tried Daggerfall, Morrowind, and Oblivion and despised them all). A massive improvement in every possible way for this series.

I got it yesterday. I'm up to level 11 I believe. Too much of my time is spent slowly walking from dungeons to the nearest town to sell all the weapons I found though.

For the most part you're best just picking up stuff with a high value to weight ratio and leaving basic armour and weapons behind. The game's that long that you can happily fast travel to sell off loot in the early going because you'll still have plenty of time to wander/explore later on when your capacity's higher. Also, more a matter of personal preference maybe, but I find 90% of the potions do nowt but weigh me down. Keep health/magic restorers and flog the rest would be my advice.

This game's still owning my life after over 100 hours of playing time. I love the fact simple things that you'd normally expect would lead to a throwaway five minute side quest can end up lasting hours. I highly recommend accepting any invitation to take part in drinking games.....
