So, Skyrim came out yesterday but I wasn't online to make a topic for it then. Now that it's out, are you getting it?

I'm definitely going to get it today and (perhaps sadly) going to be spending much of my time on it! The graphics are brilliant and practically every review I've read seems to like the game (95%+ from IGN, etc) and minus the glitches and bugs (which are to be expected in a game of this magnitude to be honest) the game is pretty much perfect.

I'm mostly looking forward to exploring the ice-cold lands and fighting dragons!

How about you?

Well, I just bought the game. It's everything I expected, and more! If I ever review this, I'd rate it 100%. The graphics are fantastic (though not made for my non-HD TV), the battles are dynamic and fun and the story is fine, though you can do your own thing anywhere. My main plan is to buy a house in the north-west capital and use that for storage, though it's really expensive at 25,000 Septims!!

If you can, buy this!

I think I bought it back in January. It was my first Elder Scrolls game, and was bought in the XBox format (I'm assuming there's also a PC version). I was lucky in that if I hadn't seen someone else playing it (who let me shoot a mammoth... big mistake), I wouldn't have bought it. I just didn't understand the fuss of Elder Scrolls.

Now I do. Going back down the years, it reminds me of the original Neverwinter Nights (before all the expansion packs) and Dragon Age all rolled into one lovely mess. There's always something to do, and I admit, I favour summoning things. I've not been on it this week (for shame) due to real life commitments, but I know I've clocked over seventy hours and still have tonnes to do.

If you're a DA or Neverwinter fan, I reckon you'd like it. For those who like Assassin's Creed, possibly not so much unless your likes are varied.

I'd give it a 9/10. The deducted point being that though the mechanics of fighting themselves are well thought out, it's not so easy for you to dodge a blow as the AI can, and the character you play is not as agile as they should be when in battle.

Yeah, there's a PC version too. I've got Neverwinter Nights too, but I have to admit, TES is much less buggy than NN! (Well, aside from probably Daggerfall Razz)

It's interesting you should mention Assassin's Creed though - I play both TES and AC, and I like both games. AC takes you more along a set story with set locations, while TES is more free-roaming. AC doesn't let you decide anything, whilst TES does. AC probably has the better story of the two though, but that's because it's all set on the main story without the multitude of extra paths available.

Sadly, I haven't been playing much at all recently. I have some important exams pretty soon, on top of a couple of other events and my site/the sites I RP on!

I'm a huge Assassin's Creed fan (5th March was my highlight this month, that's how sad-gamer I am XD). I've all of them, though I have to admit though I'd never trade them in, I don't think I would play the first one again... Sorry Altair. Simply because the others are so much better (eg, swimming), and there are some annoying things about AC1 (especially those cut-scenes). Those Desmond bits in Revelation are annoying though!

I agree AC has a better storyline with it's being linear. To be honest, storyline-wise in Skyrim... I'm a little lost XD

I never got around to playing Rev, even though I liked AC2 and Brotherhood a lot. I guess only being in one city turned me off AC slightly, felt a bit restrictive.

Where are you in Skyrim? lol.

I have absolutely no idea XD It's been a hectic week so I can't even remember what I did last lol! I think I was off to go kill another dragon and managed to kill my horse instead - my game's running out of horses because I keep getting them killed...
