behzad -  I bought this game off Steam yesterday for 50% off thinking it was a MMORPG.

It is not...

Still spent most of the day on it though. Im in jail for killing a man and stealing his horse. Phone Post

No worries, there will be a Elder Scrolls online MMO soon enough.

I've never played an MMO.  I don't much care for multiplayer games of any sort.  Mainly because there are so many douchebags out there.

But I might just have to at least give ESO a try.  That video was pretty cool.  And it seems there are other things to do besides dealing with DB players.  So at least I can quest on my own.

Trichoke7 - I love this game but I have a PS3.

Fuck you PS3.

The PS3 is not the problem. It is a coding issue. Bethesda Game Studios developed the game for the Xbox360, and ported it to the the PC and PS3.

The PC and Xbox360 pretty much work on the same architecture, while the PS3 is completely different.

Again, it is the developers at Bethesda Game Studios who are to blame. The knew the game was whack on the PS3 when they released it.

Skyrim has tremendous memory problems on the PS3. That is why us PS3 users have not gotten the other downloadable content (Hearthfire, Dawngaurd). It is unstable, and will not run properly.

that's like buying a 100 dollar Squier Guitar and wondering why is doesn't play like a 1964 Fender.


If you mean the game, and that it was made for the Xbox360, I get you.

If you mean the PS3 is inferior to the Xbox360, you do not know WTF you are talking about.

The CPU in the PS3 runs circles around the 360. They both have 512 Mb's of RAM. Difference is, the PS3 has to use half of the RAM for graphics.

Skyrim on the PC is a recommended 4 MB dedicated RAM. The Xbox360 can use all 512 Mb's, although its graphics pale in comparison to the PS3, and of course the floor is wiped on a decent PC.

The problem is with RAM allocation. Bethesda Game Studios knew this, Todd Howard (lead game developer of BGS) knew this and actually publicly stated it.

If BGS wrote the game for PS3, that would be a different story. They didn't, to save money, and secure their 11/11/11 release date.

The reason PS3 owners might get Dragon Born is because it takes place in a different "cell" within the game. If you do not know what that means, well, you do not know WTF you are talking about.

However, the game is still gonna freeze, and the frame rates are gonna drop, and quests and what not are gonna be quirky. Why? Because the damn game uses so much RAM remembering where you dropped a cheese roll in a "cell" before the 10 or 30 day in game refresh, that 256 Mb is not enough to keep up.

The PS3 is a BEAST when a DEV team knows what they are doing.

Bethesda Game Studios has been in bed with Microsoft since Morrowind. Ever wonder why Morrowind is not available on PS3? Oblivion from Bethesda Game Studios was ported over to the PS3 by 4J Studios. That is why it works.

BTW, all the extras on the PS3 version of Oblivion(Knights of the Nine, Shivering Isles) is from BGS, not 4J Studios. That is why the game gets all funky on PS3 sometimes.


Sorry for the FRAT, but this shit pisses me off.

Started playing last night. Played for 8 hours straight! Think I only did the first quest mission and spent most of the time running around looking for trouble. Killed a whole village of bad guys and stopped by a river/creek to heal. Got ate by a gator.

What level are you at, and what's your smithing at?

Should be able to buy them quite a few different places. I ended up with 80 million of them because things like ebony ingots that have high value to weight ratio are a great way to store value that doesn't depend on vendors having a bunch of gold.

You should for sure be able to get them from the blacksmith in the thieves' guild and the one in whiterun. Phone Post

TSMontana - Started this game over a year ago, and still haven't finished the main storyline, or even started the Dawnguard or Dragonborn storylines. Did they finally fix that Blood On The Ice glitch for Xbox? The glitches killed any momentum I had playing the game.
What's the glitch? Phone Post

Blood on the Ice starts with discovering a murdered body. However, if you do something before you find the body, the quest won't trigger at all. If you can't get the quest completed, you don't get the home in Windhelm.

i got this and AC3 for xmas. AC3 is collecting dust until i get tired of skyrim. i've done maybe 1% of the main quest and just walk around following waterways and killing everything to get my Archery/Sneak up. this game is so damn beautiful and such a nice change from the Capitol/Mojave wasteland settings in Fallout. 

any advice for a level 28 Wood Elf with 91 Archery, 63 Sneak and below average almost everything else?  any bows out there better than the Ebony(fine) attainable at my level?   doesn't matter if it's enchanted, i'll be doing a mage character my next play through.

gonna start sifting through this thread now.

Finally got round to buying this game.

I'm only a few hours in and I feel like a small potato. I'm a Kajit, dirt poor and just killed my first dragon through pure luck.

Any hints/tips/recommendations you guys can throw my way?
