The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

43 Replies 1,040 Views Created 30-12-2010

So after looking at the forums I have noticed not too many people have mentioned this game, which is sad for me because this will be my game of the year (I know its a big call with some of the games lined up for next year but I love this series, reguardless of the bugs that came out with the launch of Oblivion).

The teaser for the game is here:
http://www.gametrailers.com/video/vga-10-elder-scrolls/708369

I hope there will be more interest when the Feb issue of Game Informer is released because according to Todd Howard, they have given alot of information to them about the game.

Is anyone else looking foward to this game?? Or is it overshadowed too much by the news of Uncharted 3 coming out, which is 10 days before Skyrim based off the current release dates.

There should be a trophy for console restarts with Bethesda games.

Gold trophy: "F F S". Resart your console 5 times as a result of in-game freezing.

wierd, on either PC or PS3 I have never gotten the errors that some people say they get when playing an Elder Scrolls game. Hopefully this game will keep that trend with me.

Not long now until this gets released though :D

Really? Oblivion was the first game to totally lock up my PS3, and it then proceeded to do it every 2-3 hours of gameplay...luckily the sound glitches first so you have about a minute to save before ti dies. Also anytime I had too many enemies chasing me (because I am a chicken) between zones on the world map. Fallout 3 was a lot better except for the Point Lookout DLC, which was super-freezy.

Yup, the Fallout games were a nightmare for me with freezing.

One quest in particular in New Vegas (the one where you assemble the performers for The Tops) was particularly terrible. I know Bethesda were only the developer on it, but the game still used the Fallout 3 engine. A lot of the DLC with Fallout 3 had issues too as Scunter says. I had to give up on Mothership Zeta in the end.

From memory, anytime you went into an Oblivion portal was cross your fingers time too?

Having said all that, I still can't wait for Skyrim to come out!!

I know I have been away from the forums for awhile, but this needs to be noted.

This is probably for the United States but at least it is something that I can have running in the background at work to keep me motivated :D

 

Anyone else looking forward to this??

I wonder if Bethesda have sorted out their numerous freezing, crashing, and generally game-ruining errors that riddled previous games such as Oblivion and Fallout 3.

I never noticed a majority of the bugs that people kept talking about in both Fallout 3 and Oblivion. Either the bugs were too random and didnt happen to me or I am too much of a fan to notice:P

 

Only 4 days to go now.

PLayed for about 5 hours yesterday, but managed to kill a dragon, buy a horse and joined the darkbrotherhood, but otherwise i kept messing out with blacksmithing and cooking (if your planning on cooking in this game, keep all the salt piles you find, as they an ingredient in practically every dish)

@Toots4You: With Fallout 3, the bugs didn't manifest very often, unless you installed any of the DLC packs. Each DLC pack you installed would increase the likelihood of a crash or freeze. The Point Lookout DLC was the worst of the lot. They were considerably less frequent in Oblivion, but still there. Not a real problem if you saved often, or kept the autosave on.

 

@maximuspower: Any sign of the above-mentioned problems yet? Skyrim is definitely on my list, but I'd be keener if I knew they had improved the stability of their engine.

That's good news. I'd order Skyrim right now if I hadn't just preordered AC:R. I'll definitely pick it up later, though. Oblivion and Fallout 3 (warts and all) are still among my favourite games.

So far (fingers crossed) Skyrim seems to be pretty smooth in terms of stability. No system lock-ups yet and I'm a good 10 or so hours in I'd say......and if that's not the kiss of death, nothing is!!!

I havent had any issues at all ( i have it on pc, but ill get the ps3 version to :P ) Really enjoying it, although it is very much Oblivion with a couple of subtle differences. Killed 3 dragons so far, i like the random encounters you get with them, the Giants on the other hand, they are tough, very tough, will take me a good 10mins to kill one, thats with a bow and arrow, because if i get to close one hit from the will send me a couple of miles into the sky :Lol: So have to shoot, run, hide, rinse and repeat :D

All in all, im enjoying it more than Oblivion, but i can see it consuming a fair amount of my life to finish :D
