Sid_6.7: mooseyfate: It's the strangest thing in the farking world. The other day I was playing Skyrim on my 360 with a controller, but then I decided to take a break from Skyrim and instead began playing Shogun 2 on my computer. By some act of God, I was able to go from the console controller (which apparently makes anyone that touches it a retard) to the keyboard and mouse (which apparently makes people God-like) without skipping a beat. It's almost as if my brain doesn't give a shiat which method I use to control my games, which is quite passive-aggressive of it if you ask me. What's your farking problem, brain? You keep this up, I won't even know which group of gamers I'm supposed to feel superior to./and to the PC gamers that bemoan the "dumbing down" of control schemes with cross-platform releases//the game devs don't care, they're raking in waaaay more dough now that they don't have to strictly cater to you anymore///you'll not only get over it, you'll also keep playing said cross-platform gamesYeah, damn, I'll just have to play on my PC, which loads much faster, is easier to control, has better graphics, and can be easily modded.Oh, and the games are cheaper.
Practical_Draconian: Course we could just go for the jugular and go to the Altmer capital island for the next go around.
roc6783: Ummm...you realize that more people play consoles, which means if developers want the largest market for their games they make a game for consoles. If the developer does not spend the money to adequately port a game to PC or design a game specifically for the PC, how is it the fault of people who play consoles?//Also, I hope you don't truly believe that comparing a society destroying, anti-intellectual government body to a form of entertainment is a valid comparison.
NeoCortex42: I would love it if someone could recreate the entirety of Morrowind with the Skyrim engine.
whizbangthedirtfarmer: Ah, the old console/PC biatchfest. Here's my two cents, which is probably worth far less than face value.I have an XBox, a Wii, and a gaming PC I put together myself. I have a good number of games from Steam. I use all three of the devices frequently. Essentially, if I am playing something more casually, or a game I don't think will be particularly challenging, I will usually fire up the XBox. On the PC, I usually have the more time-consuming games, especially the strategy games like Total War and so on.I can use them all and never consider myself beholden to one or the other. I enjoy each of them.
scottydoesntknow: mooseyfate: So do that. It's your choice as a consumer to choose one over the other. I, personally, enjoy gaming on both. Which apparently means I'm super retarded, since I'm only allowed by the Internet farkwad Theorist up above to select one.Pure PC gamers are always the first to shiat on a video game thread and it happens in 99% of video game threads. Then it turns into a douchey PC vs. console flamewar when most people just want to talk about the damn game. Hell I only remember one game thread that didn't turn into a flamewar, and it was for "Just Cause 2" and everyone just talked about the game. It was pleasant.I play both PC and console, like you do, and feel the exact same way.For supposedly being the "superior race", pure PC gamers sure are a whiny bunch.

NaziKamikaze: Look, I don't care how you play, but there is nothing wrong with current controllers. Just because *you* don't have the ability to use one proficiently doesn't mean gaming is ruined as a whole..
Sid_6.7: kmmontandon: Having not played Skyrim (don't have the computer to run it), I'm wondering - is levelling the same as it is in Oblivion?Because I wasn't real thrilled with that.It's quite similar, except that they removed class skills, so in order to level up you must increase any combination of skills ten times.Sadly, it kind of removed one of the easiest ways to beat Oblivion on the highest difficulty: never level up, and set all your class skills to crap you never use. You can beat the game at level 1, since basically everything scales to your level.Anyway, in short:They made the mechanics even less complicated (compared to, for example, Morrowind) to cater to the vast sea of utter f*cking morans that play on consoles and need something more like CoD and less like an actual RPG. Oh, and who have to play on sh*tty little controllers, instead of a mouse/keyboard, making the game even less interesting and harder to control.Really, I like Skyrim, but it's really goddamn sad to think what it might have been if not for goddamn console gamers.
Flappyhead: Hope Bethesda makes it an actual challenge instead of 9999 HP and one hit kills.
StrangeQ: I never finished the Dark Brotherhood quests...(spoilers, if it matters at this point..) when I was faced with the dilemma of the three prisoners I chose option D: turn around and shoot that uppity biatch in the face with my forged and enchanted Daedric bow. At least I figured out what that abandoned shack in the middle of the marsh was for.
Saturn5: Gonz: Let me play Skyrim for an hour, and I become exceptionally racist towards the Thalmor, and want to kill them all.I have a trophy room full of mannequins wearing the Hooded Thalmor robes of those I've killed. I may start collecting their heads, but I need to brush up on decapitations. Usually all that's left is an ash pile.
Gonz: CygnusDarius: Things I'd like to see for Skyrim:1.- To help the Forsworn (not just in one mission, but an entire story arc. I liked the Forsworn, actually).2.- To bring down the Thalmor (I'd like that a lot).I am a live-and-let-live guy. Hell, for all intents and purposes, I'm a modern hippie. Ponytail, Prius, I'm that guy.Let me play Skyrim for an hour, and I become exceptionally racist towards the Thalmor, and want to kill them all.I find that interesting.

moothemagiccow: i thought this game was about arrows or something
akula: Yeah, I'm somewhere in the mid 60s, and unless I spend a fark ton of time doing boring crap like pickpocketing and buying/selling useless crap just to level some stealth or speech skills, I'm as high as I'm going to be going. Hell, the last few levels have been because I've been grinding stats in skills I just haven't used much (either magic or combat styles I didn't specialize in). It just started becoming a job and the result is I haven't fired up Skyrim in months. I doubt I will, either. It was a fun game and a good value for my entertainment dollar, but I just don't feel the desire to create a new character and try another style or grind my way to level 80.I can see why others would, but I think I've had my play out of this one.

scottydoesntknow: CipollinaFan: That sounds cool I wonder if it will be available for PS3./Still waiting on Dawnguard.They did say that PC AND PS3 players would be getting it early next year. Still no luck on dawnguard or hearthfire yet, but they're supposedly really sure they'll get Dragonborn out on all platforms.
