Unless you have a 6 year old pc that barely runs ms-dos. Like me :lol:

Yeah, seriously. My PC is like 6 or 7 years old too. I can just feel it crapping out on me. I need to save up to buy a new one, but I've been saying that for years.

This PC is so crappy, videos lag and stuff. Not fun.

Buy it for PC or you're a sucker, lol


I understand the advantage, but I already spend much of a work day hunched over a desk on a computer. When I play a game, I want to be lazed out on a couch. So Xbox is working for me with that.

True. That is the one upside of x box, etc. But some of the mods that have been made for the PC version are amazing which is why I would recommend the PC version by far.

Yeah just like with Tribes, half-life, Diablo, starcraft. On the PC user generated content keeps the game going long after the console version would have been put to rest. Christ Ive played probably 500 user made Portal levels lol.

A bloomin' Silver Hand archer keeps one-shotting me. That Farkas guy is useless. And I can't take on four SH bosses on my own. Any ideas?

My flame atronachs get toasted quickly, healing only gets me one-shotted, and nothing else seems to work either! I've not quit a dungeon yet, but...

I know where you are (Near the stairs that has the dart trap, aye?), do as much damage as you can and retreat to the door that takes you to the first part, keep backing out till they start thinning out and you can get them 1 on 1. Farkas is immortal on this quest, so let him distract. Also, if you are a conjurer, I find a ressed Draugr with an Ancient Nord Greatsword or battleaxe does better in this fight for you.

Good luck, it's a nasty fight

Retreat and come back later stocked with supplies. Or just drop down the difficulty (kinda like cheating I suppose, but it's better than being stuck in the same spot all day long). It's nasty as well the first time I did it. Took a few tries. Every time I do it with a new character though I make sure I'm well prepared.

So at level 30 I decided to completely change my Character and become a baddie. So I've gone from a spell-sword heavy armour wearing good guy to a Sneak expert thief/assassin character wearing light armour. really regretting pouring perks into the heavy armour tree now.

There should be a guy somewhere like in Solitude that you can pay to "reset" your skill trees.

New Skyrim DLC delayed on PS3



If you're still hooked on the newest Elder Scrolls game, we sure hope you're playing it on Xbox 360 or PC.

Because if you're on the PS3, your days of waiting for the newest downloadable content are only going to continue.

In an update posted on Bethesda's official blog, the publisher wrote, "We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality."

The expansion file gives players, among other things, the ability to join a vampire hunting mission with a group called Dawnguard, or they can become a vampire and be a part of the uprising instead.

If you become a vampire you earn a handful of new powers such as the ability to turn into a cloud of bats, as well as an attack that suspends your enemies in mid air.

The Dawnguard expansion pack is chock full of sweet, fresh digital content, providing up to 20 hours of gameplay.

Yes, Dawnguard will offer players a new main quest with two different tracks including one - for Vampire Lord and one for Dawnguard. No matter which story track the player chooses, the paths will converge at certain points and then diverge yet again.

Skyrim, an epic and wildly anticipated new entry in the Elder Scrolls series, was recognized last year by taking away the top prize - Game of the Year - at the annual Video Game Awards.

I haven't played for nearly a month since getting stuck on that stupid companions quest. Am going to bite the bullet and lower the difficulty tonight :(

Also, I wish that the developers would do a Game of Thrones game. That franchise deserves a Skyrim-esque game.

It's starting to sound like it won't even get released for PS3. They didn't even drop a hint as to when it might be ready. If that's the case that really sucks and I'll probably have to wait a year or two before the price drops and I can get a GOTY edition for my Xbox.

Just recently started playing again on PC with mods. I must say, the game is a lot more enjoyable on the PC. I sorta missed this game. When you don't play it for awhile, the little things, such as a thief coming up to you wanting to steal your items, are appreciated.

DLed Dawnguard off of steam. Brings back memories of the first month or two after release where the game would freeze up every so often and I would have to use task manager to get out of it. Freezing up about ever hour or so now. Just like the main game until it was patched. Fun times.

Is it true you can craft arrows and dragonbone weapons in Dawnguard!?


Yes and Yes.

So I lowered the difficulty three notches to novice...and STILL got head-shotted by that blasted archer :lol:

Needless to say, I re-loaded and headed straight for him. Now I'm past it and can get back to enjoying Skyrim again :)

Pretty much the best game ever, wanted to share two badarse things

1) I broke into a shop and the owner sent an assassin after me. After killing him, I snuck into her home at night and planted the note she gave the assassin into her pocket while she slept. The game will never recognize it, but I'd like to believe that it would have been terrifying.

2) I've taken to Soul Trapping important people and naming swords after them. The sword I use now is a Legendary level Glass sword that causes 10 points health absorbtion named after the Emperor, since it was his Soul I used to enchant it.

But for real, amazing in every way. Except I thought that my bounty of 1000 for a failed assassination of The Emperor was a bit lenient. I had 80,000G at the time of my arrest. I will gladly pay your bounty.

EDIT: There will probably be a few more expansions for Skyrim to keep interest in the series up until the MMO arrives.(not to mention that expansions are easy money).
