Video Games Skyrim! Or "There can be only one!"

Which is what I'm going to shout when I kill my first dragon.

I got to squeeze in an hour last night, its a gorgeous game, though I can already tell its going to be a typical Bethesda game with its hiccups and glitches. Just make sure you guys never save over another save, make a new save every time, and then just go back and clear out old saves after a while. Helps tremendously in avoiding bugs.

I'll probably be able to play it this Saturday. Looking forward to this since i barely got to play Oblivion at all... this will be pretty much my entry point on the Elder Scrolls series.

So, what characters are you people going with?

I'm rolling with a High Elf, mainly because I want to do something different to what I'd normally do in a fantasy game and go pure mage, and High Elves have magic regen. My mission is pretty much to become an all powerful god by the end.

This game is taunting me by it's reviews of "play anyway you like", i'm not sure if it's possible but i really want to play "stealth", in a "kill from the shadows" way... not sure if the game is going to let me do it though.

I wanted to be a Bow user, but i'm never a good bow user in games that have limited arrows (also, hardly worth it the extra hussle)

Lanfear the Breton Mage is now stalking about the countryside of Skyrim. Very pretty game. I tried uploading some screenshots, but Steam is being a jerk. Must be too busy getting hacked or something.

I love the changes from Oblivion. This game is just way more FUN to play, on top of still being massive.

What I'm wondering is, how well supported is it for PC? Does it feel like they took the time to make it perfect for PC, or are the controls awkward, and feel like a port?

The controls from what I've felt so far definitely fit really well for a PC. I can see in their menu choices they had consoles in mind, but they didn't ignore the PC gamers in this, that is for sure.

Skyrim already runs better than Oblivion did. I remember how much Oblivion glitched out and crashed. I think Skyrim has crashed to desktop once for me in 3 hours, but probably because I was alt-tabbing to click a steam notification that wasn't showing in the overlay. Also running Ultra High without a hitch. I swear, even Oblivion lagged sometimes at max graphics, by today's hardware standards.

I am almost certain this is indeed a viable way to play the game. So yeah, go with it dude. I've mostly just been fighting bandits so far but you can definately sneak up close to them and/or hit them from range. Plus you seem to find a metric shit ton of arrows as well, and they have no weight.
