Excellent, best thing about Elder Scrolls IV was the dungeon crawling for me anyways.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if mine doesn't turn up tomorrow because it appears that my regular postie is either off sick or on holiday which means somedays we dont get mail and if we do then it is normally after midday.

Anyways, excited about the dual-wielding magic but as normal, I will be sorting out my blade and shield first.

It's in the post thanks to Lovefilm, bit reluctant to get totally stuck in though.  It's a serious misallocation of valuable military resources...

Can not f*cking wait. I'm going Dunmer with a nice shade of Blue and a healthy 75% resistance to fire! Will be going toe-to-toe with any Dragon I see. Well met indeed.

Got me a half day tomorrow but if Sendit don't come through for me it's going to be a pretty damn depressing one.

Received a despatch email this afternoon at least. Got my fingers crossed.

Better than Oblivion?


A few bullet points whilst I take a break from it...

Graphically, easily.

Sound wise, easily.

Main Plot, hopefully! Enjoyed the side quests far more than the main plot.

Nice skill tree system this time (Fallout style with perks)

One word of warning - read the instructions whilst it is installing becuase there is not much of a tutorial (even to the extent that it doesn't even tell you hoq to equip the loot you find.)

I have heard more voices in the three hours I have played of this than I ever did in the 100 hours I played of Oblivion.

The ultra-shite Persuasion mini-game has been ditched from Oblivion.

HINT:- Make full use of the Favourites function as it WILL save your life many, many times!

It will be better than Oblivion because there'll be no god damn Oblivion gates to close!

Important question now DK, can you put beards on your character? Oblivion did not have beards which was stupid, everyone knows Warriors have beards. Its science.

No idea as I rolled a female warrior/caster and to try and put a beard on her would have made her look like she was from Cornwall

#if reader is from Cornwall, please replace with any other place in the UK with slighty strange people.....

It's mentioned in one of the reviews that there is the option of beards. I'm tempted to get this just to create a character with a beard.

I have a question....

I've never really played full on RPG's. I was very tempted to get Fallout 3, everythign I saw of it made it look like a really nice immersive game. However, I was put off by the thought of all the upgrading and talk of XP and assigning skills and stuff. It sounds to me like an almost impenetrable part of gaming language, that really put me off.

I've seen some vids of Skyrim, I've read the reviews and it does look mighty impressive. I'm not a big sword and swocery fan, but having really enjoyed Game of Thrones again recently, I was thinking, is this maybe the game to break my RPG virginity? I love games with really immersive atmospheres, that reward for spending hours at a time playing, even if it's not necessarily playing the main story. For example, in Red Dead I spent hours wandering around killing animals, playing poker, randomly taking in scenery and just generally doing my own thing whilst sinking into this Wild West world. Skyrim kinda looks like it could do that for me, that I could just float around the world becoming some bad ass warrior dude and occasionally tackling a few story missions.

My main fear though, is that it will have all the trappings of RPG's that really scare me away. The endless tweaking of skills, with combat being a turn based hit, block, get hit, block, hit on and on. I'm worried that I wouldn't just be in control of my character in my preferred 3rd person taking it all in and doing what I want to do.

So, as an RPG virgin but as someone that can commit time to a game and does love a bit of immersion, but is wary of RPG complexities, do we think Skyrim is a good place to start?

I'm interested in this game, but I have concerns about the combat system.  So I'm curious, a question for Dark Knight: how does the combat and magic system work compared with Dark Souls?  Same sort of deal or what?

EDIT: edited for poor grammer and spelling
