Trailer looks good. Only 8 1/2 months to wait!

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 24 February 2011 17:06 (nine years ago) link

Cannot wait for this.

Mordy, Thursday, 24 February 2011 17:06 (nine years ago) link

from the video

-draw distance looks much improved (foggy mountain at 2:00 mark looks amazing)
-area control spell
-looks like you might be able to cast spells while you use 1 handed weapon (maybe not - it's just that you can see the spell hand and the weapon hand on the same screen in first person mode)
-more realistic hand graphics/animations in general (archer's arms look dirty in 1st person)
-assassin kill in 3rd person
-dragon kill looks like a cutscene

northrend looks awesome in this game

rockapads, Thursday, 24 February 2011 17:45 (nine years ago) link

i never finished morrowind or oblivion but i'm really excited for this anyway. i never feel obligated to finish these games, i just play for the immersion

hoping i don't have to buy a new video card to run it well though

ciderpress, Wednesday, 2 March 2011 20:32 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, I never finished Oblivion either.. or even played into the first portal (at Kvatch). My character was sort of like a god that could kill everything in 1-2 hits. Money was never an issue. I sort of want to finish Oblivion but I don't know if I could play my last save game even though I spent forever on "efficient leveling" crap and even got a bunch of skills up to 100.

I'm sure I'll buy Skyrim

What I can't understand is why other gaming companies don't make their own Oblivion clones. I mean it's been 5 years since its release. Maybe the blame is to be placed on MMORPGS. I dunno

This might be the most important game in my post childhood lifetime. Hopefully I'll find a way to afford a gaming computer

My one Skyrim regret, so far, is that the world is only the same size as Oblivion's world and actually Skyrim might be a bit smaller.

Something cool is that you'll supposedly bre able to enter caves/dungeons without having a load screen.

Ooh, you want to be careful chucking words like 'important' around on this forum! Go on, what do you mean?

Also unknown as Zora (Surfing At Work), Sunday, 19 June 2011 19:38 (eight years ago) link

Immersive FPS fantasy RPGs are my favorite genre of games. There hasn't been anything good in this genre since Oblivion (which was seriously flawed in hindsight).

Who knows if Skyrim will earn an A+. But I'm pretty confident that it will earn an A. Most of my problems with Oblivion have been addressed.

Here's hoping for a good story and nothing too simplified. I'm hoping for a lot more variety, sandbox stuff, as well.

Muttley vs. Mumbly (CaptainLorax), Sunday, 19 June 2011 21:37 (eight years ago) link

Oblivion was seriously flawed in foresight tbh. I still played the hell out of it, ofc.

There are some decisions they've made for Skyrim that strike me initially as disappointing but I'm not 100% sure I won't grow to love them - ditching classes, changing up the magic system, the fancy 3d map etc. Can't see an upside to the apparent reduction in no. of armour slots. But it *does* look like they're putting in-game travel options back and maybe - I'm hoping so hard here it hurts - getting rid of the quest carrots.

Confused Turtle (Zora), Tuesday, 21 June 2011 19:16 (eight years ago) link

Quite a lot less excited about this since I saw those E3 gameplay videos, just because it looks so similar to Oblivion.

JimD, Tuesday, 21 June 2011 21:43 (eight years ago) link

It's a shame they've gone for another of the most mundane provinces instead of somewhere more exotic. Morrowind really set the bar; nowhere else in Tamriel is as strange; but Skyrim is v. much Midgard to Cyrodiil's Albion. I hope they've found ways to inject some originality.

I crawled my first dungeon last night and totally enjoyed it! I did bring a companion along, don't know if that's considered cheating, but I've got my first shout now is the important thing.

I'm not too sure why I enjoyed this so much more than Witcher 3, but I'm going to chalk it to to the combat mechanics. Janky as it is in Bethesda games, it at least didn't grind to a halt. Oh, and the loading times!

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Wednesday, 1 April 2020 15:49 (two months ago) link

Taking somebody with you is totally not cheating but I find it really annoying, they fuck up my stealth

Companions are fine + perfectly acceptable except for the rare companion who won't hang the fuck back when you tell them to. In those cases, I advise Unrelenting Force shouting them off a cliff at every opportunity (once you unlock the majesty of that particular shout, of course).

There's one good one in - I think - the Illusion tree that lets you spellcast silently. Combined with invisibility makes you a total ninja

Are you aware of Skyrim's Legendary leveling, Leee? Once you hit level 100 on any skill tree, you can opt to go 'Legendary', at which point your perks under that tree can be redistributed wherever you like.

Generally, though, yes: leveling sneak up to the point of becoming invisible is well worth it. Smithing and enchanting if you want to construct all of your own equipment rather than relying on whatever's lying around. I also like keeping my archery leveled all the way up. Otherwise, I'll max out, like, heavy armor, make it Legendary, redistribute my perks, and then use light armor for a while until it's maxed out. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 1 April 2020 18:36 (two months ago) link

Also, if you haven't yet, save your game (I reemphasize: SAVE YOUR GAME), and go throw a punch at a giant to see what happens. It's a gas.

Ste, Saturday, 4 April 2020 11:20 (two months ago) link

I always play with companions since my tactics is generally to get someone else to do initial damage while I spell long distance casts from a safe distance. I also like to taunt giants to lure them toward enemy camps and watch the chaos unfold

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Saturday, 4 April 2020 12:33 (two months ago) link

Ste, you just have to talk to a bunch of people. A lot of the towns will just have some random dude sitting around bored off his ass and itching to die horribly amid your quest for a new sword.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Saturday, 4 April 2020 12:37 (two months ago) link

Worth a revisit then, if only to try the house building dlc I recall having.

I believe my previous game was halted when I got stuck on some off map area, I was invading some fort with some other guys, but my skills were rubbish and I couldn't defeat them. Somehow I couldn't get out of the area and back to the main map without completing the quest.

I did try the VR mode, but combat just makes me a bit sick if I'm honest.

Ste, Saturday, 4 April 2020 14:06 (two months ago) link

Dipped back in this afternoon. Remembered that I was a werewolf, ran around for a half hour indiscriminately devouring every living thing I encountered, took a header off a cliff and died. Good times!

Ste, Sunday, 5 April 2020 09:07 (two months ago) link

Some updates:

- I bought a house at Whiterun.
- I made it to Windhelm after some cultists tried to assassinate me, then traveled to Solstheim and completed some missions. I'm probably going back to Skyrim because I didn't realize that this was DLC, and anyway, I have too much loot on me right now.
- I played tag. I won.
- I've done some digging and will probably be selling my dragon bones, since I'm going to for a sneaky dark mage, and I'll eventually be aiming at Dragonscale and/or glass armor.
- In the meantime, I'm squishy as hell! I've tried to enchant some items and the results have been pretty weak, like a magicka regen of 1%. I probably need to perk that up.
- I need to figure out how to trap souls for my enchanting! I've got the spell, but haven't quite gotten to using it. Maybe on my next dungeon crawl.
- Trying to get a mammoth tusk for a quest has been lol, mostly because it could be soundtracked to Benny Hill music.

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Monday, 6 April 2020 18:06 (one month ago) link

Leveling up yr magic can get a little grindy. Just keep casting. Like when I was trying to raise my Restoration level, I'd just keep casting Healing over and over even when I didn't need to be Healed.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Monday, 6 April 2020 19:03 (one month ago) link

For trapping soul, you need to have empty soul gems on hand. You can find them all over dungeons and buy them in shops, whatevs. But make sure they're empty if you're trying to fill them with souls. And I think you need to cast the spell and then kill the entity upon whom you cast the spell within a limited time? It's been a while because I've been coasting on the dozens of soul gems I filled for quite a while now.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Monday, 6 April 2020 19:06 (one month ago) link

Yep, I have an academic understanding of the mechanics of trapping souls, but I haven't put it into practice yet, mostly because I feel a little too squishy to spend magicka on anything but flaming enemies.

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Monday, 6 April 2020 22:10 (one month ago) link

I just played an amazing dungeon that was part of the Hangover quest. So the dungeon is filled with mages, most of whom I can easily dispatch, but at the end I have to fight a fairly high level wizard who throws lightning at me, which I didn't realize also saps my magic on top of pretty sizable damage, meaning I died to this bastard a bunch of times. Out of a sense of let's try something else, I see a hallway I haven't explored yet and sneak into it, and I see that it has a trap where a spiked gate that slams into anyone who steps on a pressure plate. I think that maybe I can lure the wizard into this trap, if he avoids it at least I'm in a place that has a choked point. So I sneak attack him to knock off about a third of his hp, and he starts looking for me as I hightail back to the corridor. He steps on the trap and BOOM the spiked gate finishes him off. The level design and the challenge and the novel solution plus the quest line all made tqhis quest... A NIGHT TO REMEMBER.

I'm missing Lydia (RIP) now, because the one housecarl I have access to is Valdimar, and nearly every time I try to give him stuff to carry, he asks me, "Do you want something my thane, or do you want to give me something?" in his deliberate Nordic drawl, which is driving me crazy.

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Tuesday, 14 April 2020 21:53 (one month ago) link

maybe a similar mission, or the same, but I had something similar which took many many attempts and could only be achieved by using a rush shout to cover the distance to the magician, then knocking him unconcious, trying to deal as much damage as possible whilst eating all the apples/bread to keep my health up and once he revived, trying to knock him unconcious again.. any gap or slight deviation would just destroy me and i'd have to start again...

I swear, I took days replaying that same 40 sec part till I had it right, man I miss my Skyrim save on my PS3...

my opinionation (Hamildan), Wednesday, 15 April 2020 14:46 (one month ago) link

Was there a portal you could go into after you beat the boss? I just finished another quest that culminated in going to another plane of existence to fight a warlock and some high level minions that I had to cheese, but the loot was worth it.

I've been putting off choosing a side, I mean, I instinctively am against imperial hegemons, but I'm a dark elf and the Stormcloaks are racists. Then again, the Stormcloaks weren't the ones who swooped in on a fort I cleared of bandits before I had a chance to collect all the loot because I was already overburdened.

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Saturday, 18 April 2020 16:24 (one month ago) link

stormcloaks might as well be wearing red Make Skyrim Great Again hats, i couldn't deal with their racist bullshit when i played through in 2011 or whatever but revisiting in this era it's like gah

Clay, Sunday, 19 April 2020 00:43 (one month ago) link

xps: Yep, illusion tree (which complements with conjuration tree) is easy mode. Spy foes at a distance, cast fury/frenzy/mayhem, twiddle your thumbs, repeat as necessary, send in a atronach to mop up the lone wounded survivor. It's kinda fun with despicable factions (which also include Stormcloaks for me). Playing assassin, just be invisible, all the time. Works perfectly in the basic game, but it has its downsides in character progression facing late game bosses (unless you work up magicka potion making).

The last time I played through (fighting a depressive episode in late 2016) I recall I was barely ever wounded. Just infinite money from potion making, no one could ever see me, most adversaries died to fraternal violence, and my dagger had a 15x damage bonus.

If the basic gameplay loop wasn't so airtight, I might play this again, but forbid myself the "easy mode" perks (which also include archery and all the crafting skills). The lingering appeal seems really in the lore, in 2016 I actually read all the books in a Kindle compilation; its a pretty rich universe, and 15% of the books are actually good writing.

speaking moistly (Sanpaku), Sunday, 19 April 2020 01:15 (one month ago) link

Wow. Always wondered who would ever read all those random books

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Sunday, 19 April 2020 08:18 (one month ago) link

Most of the texts are only couple pages on the Kindle; 30 seconds to skim. It's a better experience than finding books 2 and 4 of a 4 or 9 volume set in game. I recall the collection was 3 nights for me.

Mind I'd never played the prior games (something like 60% of the books are grandfathered in from them), and am not much of a fantasy-lit fan, yes I made it through LotR as an 11 year old, but balked at Silmarillion. But the nature of the assemblage, built up in geological layers over 5 games, means its a pretty rich universe, with some weird things offscreen. Sometimes one just wants to inhabit a distant universe.

There are whole YouTube channels devoted to exploring obscure corners of the lore, if one just wants to put it on in the background.

Triceratops Vowell (Leee), Monday, 20 April 2020 23:22 (one month ago) link

I pay zero attention to pretty much any video game narrative because narrative is, for whatever reason, the thing that pretty much every video game does the worst. So I've done a pretty good job of ignoring whatever story was taking place throughout the hundreds of hours I've spent on this game.

Unparalleled Elegance (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 01:25 (one month ago) link

Narrative has never been Bethesda's strong suit, although Morrowind comes close.

Designers are at pains to reconcile the linear demands of narrative as it unfolds over time (no matter how non-linear the yarn itself purports to be) with the countless options that we have come to expect from video games, which value agency above all. Games such as Skyrim, which stake everything on the freedom to wander, tend to fail as vehicles for storytelling in the traditional sense. Conversely, Planescape: Torment or – if reviewers are to be believed, as I haven't played it yet – Disco Elysium excel in terms of sheer writing, to the extent that gameplay and narrative become indistinguishable. The Witcher 3 comes closest to synthesizing open world design with a story arc worth a damn but it's still too simplistic in the latter department to fully impress (the side quests and DLCs, on the other hand, are stupendously good for the genre).

pomenitul, Tuesday, 21 April 2020 01:50 (one month ago) link

Note to self: the next time I kill two dragons on my way to a dungeon, gov back to my house to drop off the damn bones and scales. Seriously, I think a quarter of my time playing thus far has been debited solely to inventory management.

One positive of having a companion is that you can make them lug your shit around. Until they die in a battle and you have to make multiple trips back and forth between their corpse and your home in order to get all your shit back.

Yes, inventory management can be a big time suck in this game.

Ah that video came out darker than I expected, it shows me trying to firebolt a frostbite spider in a mine but missing, then resorting to shouting at it which launched it straight up.

Yeah I've been rolling with a companion mage as a pack mule that happens to conjure ice atronachs. I've actually reloaded a previous save if I accidentally kill them to avoid just that scenario, though I didn't do it when I killed Lydia because a) the fight was tough and I didn't want to go through with it again and b) it was in Whiterun so I didn't have to go far to recover the loot.

Always go with the companions that cannot be killed!

Somehow lost Lydia swimming in high seas near Winterhold and now I’ve lost all the loot she was carrying for me

I just picked up a perk where my attacks no longer hurt my companions, so time to let 'er rip!
