    No idea if it's on PS3/Xbox, but it was added in uhm... 1.6? I think... Anyways, I can use it on my pc, as can my gf and we haven't got any of the same mods, therefor it must be the game itself. That said, mounted combat actually works surprisingly well, especially with archery. Very "mongolian hit 'n run".

    Well not that I know of. It's bound to happen really, eventually you WILL run out of shit to do. But there are a few "expansion" mods.

    mounted combat is a joke and 100% not worth coming back to the game for if you weren't enjoying it. it's a shitty cop out and was blizzard-esque filler material not worth the download time. 1.6 also screws up the way the game utilizes cores and memory, people on cards/cpus that kill BF3 are having issues since 1.6 in skyrim. no 100% fix as of yet either. the broken 1.6 beta is also the same thing that went live, they literally did nothing to it

    bethesda knows modders will do their jobs for free i guess

    i'd just wait and come back when dawnguard is released, which is months away but when you do, catch up on the best mods and it will be like a new game again. lots of high quality mods like always that save the whole title from being a major flop

    just watch gopher's vids on youtube (skyrim mod sanctuary) and you'll see a bunch of good mods worth using.

    Anyone know if crossbows will be leveled or have a base damage?
    If you ever get into an argument and feel that is going south, just say the word "Hodor" in a soft, deep voice, a couple of times.

    I think they're going to work exactly like bows do.

    I just wish they could push better graphics from the consoles. As it is right now, seeing ridiculously pixelated shadows and terrible rendering on objects alone makes me wish I had the PC version. That's now even including the countless PC mods that improve the game's visuals from heavier weather effects to more detailed view distance.

    i think it still looks pretty nice on xbox, some really got views of stuff you can get, but compared to PC with mods, its really bad :P i kinda wish i bought on PC, but then i couldnt talk to my friends on xbox Microsoft should make a cross platform voice chat!! do want. when Skyrim goes really cheap on PC i would probably pick it up.

    I have it on the PS3 and the lack of mods just bugs me so much. I'm so jelly of people with the Skyrim RE mod. I wonder if they'll ever add the ability to redo perks on a character on the console games.

    Also, I know I'm 8 months late to the party but is there any way to hotkey different weapon sets so you don't have to pause combat and scroll through the "favorites" list every time you want to swap weapons/spells?

    yeah that really annoys me too :P i wish there was a way of resetting perks, should add it in game and make it cost a lot of gold or something. though i suppose that would defeat the purpous of having multiple characters.

    Also Venziir, just checked and mounted combat wasn't available on my PS3 version of Skyrim and I've got the latest updates. So it's gotta be a mod. Especially since Bethesda was demonstrating it as part of the new DLC.

    Right now I am having a bit of a lighting bug... it seems whenever I am in first person mode and look at a light source (Like a fire or a spell I am holding) the screen flashes like crazy, and it stops in third person. I have a few mods but none that change graphics as far as I know. Anyone else had this issue?

    Just different endings, and it's free. I think everyone would play the dawnguard dlc over replaying the last part of Mass Effect 3 just to see an ending they'll probably be disappointed in.

    I've started working on a remake of the Ayleid Ruins from Oblivion, or at least something vaguely resembling it. The tileset will be released as a mod so anyone can create their own dungeons using it as well
