Same here. Got to rank 29 in BF3 before Skyrim released. I'm still rank 29.


I was, for some unknown reason, trying to stay away from The Dark Brotherhood in this playthrough. But i just couldn't. After completing their quests-line, i can just say it was one hell of a trip.

This game is just so packed with awesome, "meaningfull" stuff to do. Often in similar games i'd mostly go for the "main quests", and when it's over i had no real lust to do the side-quests, since they were usually useless in one way or another. I've logged 54 hours in Skyrim thus far, and i've done 7 (yes SEVEN) of the main quests. In total i've done a horde of other quests and they were all more or less awesome and served some sort of compelling purpose. It's like i've already played through on of the best single player games in my life, but i've still just barely touched it's surface.

This is almost a troll post, which is slightly upsetting because I usually agree with your comments, Ozmodan. 

Coyote does mention that the UI is cumbersome and I agree.  That said, it's not game-breaking, which is not to say that Bethesda couldn't stand to do a better job.  Anyways, even if Coyote had failed to mention it, his review was still far from failed.  It was clearly meant to be more humerous that a super-serious-let's-talk-about-every-little-aspect-of-the-game review. 

I laughed.  I enjoyed this review.

Good review!  It pretty much sums up the game and its "life stealing" vamparic quality.   Just when I think OK I can log for a bit and go watch a movie or go for a walk, call a friend and chat for a bit..."Oooo....shiney."

I play Skyrim on my PC and I have zero issues navigating the UI. I find to be an improvement over Oblivion's since I always wished I could use my keyboard to mange inventory, skills, etc. I also have yet to see any of these terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad-bugs people complain about.

My Lydia sits in my house in Winterrun or whatever town it is... I figured out quickly that companions suck. They even give you a lesson in this right off the bat when you have to follow the guy out of the town you're about to be beheaded in. So, when I got Lydia, I told her to stay inside my house. And she does. :D

Is this a joke on the graphics part  they are ok to good  not grate and far from stunning.  Have you even looked at the the wall's and plants.  They are green spots  the walls and every thing is shiny like they are painted with a coat of crushed glass and gems.  


The faces all have tiny block's on them and I could go on and on.   I am not saying it is a bad game but stop your lie's.   Yes I do play on ultra setting .    Skyrim  is notthing my a ps3/x box game   with a PC port  and it should not be that way.   It should have been made for the PC and then dumbed down for the ps3/ x box.

title is 'briefest of reviews', author states reviews ain't his thing, comedy is.....and still they can't just read what is written but see what they want to criticize for that superior feeling they get....oh orgasmic......

critics get a life and just enjoy the article.

I got my first companion (the dark elf chick) killed, so I leave Lydia at home because I like having a retainer and don't want her to die. Uthgerd the Unbroken is my current traveling duffle bag.

THis is failed review because he didn't mention UI? which by the way is not hated by everyone. When positive outweigh negatives by land slide it is much better to focus on the positives.


Stepping out of my psychotic troll persona about this game for a minute, I would like to say I actually understand and pretty much agree with this idea. However I would like to add one important caveat. I feel that excellent games should be examined with more scrutiny and be held to a higher standard of exellence than mediocre ones. The reason why I say this is becuase Skyrim is going to be the kind of game other companies look at for a template when they start designing future titles. If one of the ideas they take away from this game is that "The enjoyment of PC gamers dosen't really matter", then we who are PC gamers are going to be deeply f**ked in the near future.



If you like the UI or don't really mind playing a console game on your PC, fair enough. But if any of you out there do feel that given your druthers you would like to have seen something different UI-wise, you should speak up and not let such a thing slide. Mainly because of all companies out there, Bethesda actually seems the kind who would listen, and secondly because if you don't you may end up playing all your games this way very soon. If you are given any games at all.



And as usually Mr Coyote, great job on "Teh Funny". Add me to the list of people who found the companion AI rather less than steller.


With the exception of loot whore mule, the only other useful thing I found for them was to be comic relief. Nothing I saw in game made me laugh harder than my elfin companion tearassing off around a corner after a drauger only to come flying back into the wall at high speed after triggering the big swinging spiked door trap in the dungeon where you go get the dragons stone and the golden claw.

So I just picked up the game yesterday and dug into it in the wee hours of this morning. Just came up for air. Completely agree with the reviewer here. This game is beyond amazing.

I play on the PS3, so I've had no crashes and only 1 bug in the 30ish hours I've played so far, and those problems with the companion the author speaks about doesn't exist for me. The companion sheethes their weapon when I do, sneaks when I sneak, and if we're attacked they'll usually attack with bow first before using close combat if I'm not rushing forward. I guess the PC players must have got screwed or something.

I found that worked for a bit, but once I got some sick Sneaking gear I found that my companion didn't get those effects and usually was spotted before me, ruining everything I did. I'd say companions are more suited for characters who aren't sneaky assassins. :/

Somebody needs to go down to teh store and pick up a copy for me because am STILL stuck trying to get a couple of Co-op missions completed in BF3 without either 'you have lost connection to EA", the other player rage quitting (seriously, I am sh*t in co-op)  or simply 'You have failed because blah de blah blah died".


Dragons you say?

Companions you say?

Elf chicks you say?

That you can use like a duffle bag?


Maybe I'll wander down to the store myself...


So, you all sat in camps and that was fun?

Amazing game !!!!   Get it.

The game is among the best I've ever played for a single player game.  It may actually be the best and I've played PC games since the mid 80's.   I run the PC version and my son plays the Xbox version.   Runs perfect on my PC (specs below) at "high" settings by default and can easily run on Ultra.  Game looks 100x better on the PC and provides 8 quick slots as opposed to the Xbox 2 quick slots.   The interface is actually a bit of a pain regardless of platforms but game play owns.

If you have a choice, get the PC version.   I've played 26 hours so far and worst bug I've seen is a kick to desktop for no appearant reason.  In 26 hours that's happened about 4 times.

Bethesda has announced they are working on a cross platform patch.  No ETA.
