Just waiting for modders to create a better UI for me :D



 


EDIT: Actually I'm gonna be a champ and start working on one myself, need to play more of the game first to get an idea of what to improve :P

It took me 10 min to get used to... I think I'll be fine for the 99 hours and 50 minuites.

What about the mainstory & side quests? What's the scope & quality compared to, say, Oblivion, Falloutt 3, Fallout New Vegas? I for one hated Oblivion because of how short & bad the main story was...

Same here. Though I am honestly thinking about just spending $30 on an xbox 360 controller just to make games like these easier from the get go. Its not like games like skyrim really REQUIRE every button on the keyboard and 15button mouse to be bound to something. With a controller the UI would be a non issue for the first 10 min and you would still be playing on the PC. The whole point to a PC in RPG's is the graphics, not the 500 key binding options that you may want in other games.

Pretty much this. I'm used to the UI already, but I still don't like it. Think I'll be picking up a wired 360 controller tomorrow. All the games I've been trying to play lately really would feel better with a controller I think (Skyrim, Just Cause 2, GTA IV, Mafia II and Fable III). I'll miss the controll I get with the mouse, but if it makes it easier to navigate the UI (and drive/fly in other games) then so be it.

 

EDIT: Oh, and at JC-Smith, I'm pretty sure the default key for auto-run is 'C'.

I refuse to switch game from key board to controller. It just add morefor me to make a discision ill prolly  won't buy games anymore, if everybody give in the fact that games should played like on consoole or PC players playing on there PC with controller and big screen on couch relaxing with beer and chips you should ask yourself if your still a pc gamer or just want to have stronger console that can handle better graphics with all the comfort a console give but is not yet avaible.


I love my PC build a rig OC and finetune it so i can play them on best settings, becouse i can change alot becouse i sit behind a PC screen and play with keyboard mouse with alot more complex UI then consoles. I hate the symplification in constrolls and gameplay and the overall obvious lack of progress in AI graphics and limited npc/mob population becouse this game is alot more empty then Oblivion everything is dumb down so a console can handle it its pure console port only thing we have is 1920x1080p and AA thats all even tho i serious doub thats even through its just scaled up a little give us PC gamers impression we have AA and 1920. Its clear PC is losing BIGTIME and im very sad about this.


I still enjoy this game but only becouse there is almost nothing left to play anymore thats truely a PC game, but i already have only bought 2 games this year while i in past buying around 15 games a year.


This is now after play 15 hours and my experience how i feel while playing, prolly most of you will disagree but thats your right and i wont argue about that, i stay by my gaming experience with Skyrim.


Bethesda have won for now becouse ive spent 50 euros on Skyrim and can't chamge that anymore, but if ill buy there next product i serious start doubing that.

Does Skyrim scale the level of the monsters you encounter with your level, like Oblivion did?

Sheer awe. 

The first time I overlooked the mountains my breathe went away. The combat is immensely satisfying, the magic is rewarding and the whole system flows well together. 

I've only had a few water textures disappearing here and there, but nothing major. The UI is vastly improved. 

Overall, this is the best and most engrossing gaming experience I've ever had.

I played 7 hours yesterday after work and realy love the game. The only thing I do not understand is, how can they provide such a great and massive game with such a bad interface? It looks like its only 25% finished. The perk tree part is very beatiful but the other 3 directions? Just lists? come on, it can not be so hard that someone sits down and comes up with a few better ideas, you could even just copy them from other RPGs.

I know how "console ported UI design" is a capital sin in the pc community, and I had my reserves as well initially but some people are a little exagerating I think.

After 8 hours in it really doesn't bother me anymore; I only use hotkeys in combat and whenever I need to go into the UI it's; right hand off the mouse and 100% keyboard navigation; once you get used to the button layouts and quirky stuff like cursor buttons not scrolling when you keep holding them but W and S do, it's very manageable. Whatever you can do with a console controller, you can do with a keyboard just the same.

Innitially annoying bits like the crafting confirmation popups can be dealt with by pushing Y instead of navigating the mouse to it, to give an example.

Like any game with a new UI: it takes some time to get all the controlls hardwired, but once you do it really is not a big deal in Skyrim .... imho.

One thing that annoys me...when I killed 3 Imp troops in the forest - thre was nobody there to see me do it.  I go into town and the guard stops me and tells me I either pay the bounty on my head or he'll take me to prisom and if I resist he'll just attack me.  So how is it that the guard even knows I killed three Imp soldiers miles away from this town - (in the middle of the forest mind you)?

BTW anyone know how to get arrows to go away that your charcter has been hit with?  Mine has one in her side and the other goes right through her forehead.  LOL!

After playing all day, the only thing that bothers me is that when I rebind a key (say to make WASD the arrow keys), all the associated things do not change to the new key.

For example. I make this change to arrow keys. When I pick a lock, I still have to use the A and D keys to twist the lock, even though my directional keys have been changed. I rebound the keys, but for whatever reason, all actions that use a given key are not together in one binding. This is also a problem with favorites, dropping items, exiting out of menus, and a few other things.

It isn't a terrible problem, and after these several hours, it doesn't really bother me much, save the dropping items. I can move my right hand to the A and D keys to pick locks. I can move my hand to hit tab to exit menus. But I cannot drop items. I just cannot. I can put them in containers, but just dropping them on the ground? Nope. Impossible. Literally impossible without using the default keybindings.

My problem, my real problem, is not that I can't do the things I want to do. It is that it is wholly unacceptable for a game to be released on the PC without the ability to rebind the keys to ALL actions (if you don't want to use a master binding that, when you change a binding, affects all associated actions, then you need to add a new binding in the options menu for every single thing). This isn't a hard thing to do, and it makes life easier for PC gamers. One reason I play PC games is the ability to use the control setup I prefer. And, over the years, I have grown very particular about my setup. I think many, many gamers have done the same (though with their own unique set of controls). And that should be our right. If it is easy, and it makes things easier (or, in one case in this game, makes something even possible), there is no excuse to NOT code it in.

This is also why I refuse to play games without an option to invert the Y axis control. It is asinine and unacceptable.

It is just beyond my comprehension that a company like Bethesda would release a game with such a blatantly obvious problem as keys that simply won't rebind at all.

This problem also existed with the new American McGee's Alice game, and I assumed that was because it was released early and in a rush. But maybe what we are seeing is a further reflecting of the shift in popularity to console games. Developers simply do not care so much about their PC games. Most good PC games now that are not MMOs are console ports or indie games (which may well also be console ports). It makes me sad, because PCs are so much more robust an environment, and you can do so very much with them.


Edit:

Teala - That is some weird stuff with the arrows and the imps. No way you should have been pegged for the crime.

"Gamers will no longer buy the argument that every MMO requires a subscription fee to offset server and bandwidth costs. It's not true — you know it, and they know it." —Jeff Strain, co-founder of ArenaNet, 2007

WTF? No subscription fee?

 Ah nice one! Good tip pony, I was getting tired of stopping the game everytime to change my weapons with Q.

Absolutely love it ! Slowly getting used to the controls. That would be my least favourite thing. Graphics are gorgeous. I often find myself standing looking at the fog shrouding the mountains! Ohh and the character models are superb. They have a lot more life in them compared to Oblivion.

There are just so many little details that add to the magic of Skyrim... god I haven't even touched the surface of the game yet!

Loving it for now. At first I didn't like the interface, but now I think it's kinda elegant. I like how I can navigate the menus using the mouse or simply with the WASD keys. Still I'll wait for some more PC-ish interface mod.


My only problem was with the classical "favorites menu" since it made me think "why the hell can't I just bind my skills to the number keys?!" but someone answered my doubts for me here.


Another thing that surprised me was how smooth this game runs. I thought it was going to be pretty heavy on my processor because of its small size. I'm running on high settings in a Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz, 2GB of RAM and a GTS 450. I get around 30 fps in the open world and 50 to infinite in closed areas.

Character creator is actually worse in many ways compared with Oblivion.  Less customization options.  Mods should come to the rescue for PC users on this flaw.  I miss custom spells, also.  Ostensibly more variety than Oblivion to monsters and dungeons. Still too soon to say if this will be a better game than Oblivion.

It's extremely satisfying to one-shot an enemy with an overhead power blow from my 2-handed frost axe.


This one's a keeper.

PLayed Oblivion when it came out until I realised it's actualy an adventure game with RPG elements tagged on. Your hero progres is non existent since the environment levels with you. The only interesting thing is to do the storyline.


 


I expect Skyrim to be the same with a bit better graphics. Not a game for me.
