    Probably already been asked but...I try.
    Yesterday started Skyrim and I don't understand the menu/option browsing, is it only doable via keyboard?
    Looks like I can't click all the options but I need to go there with arrows and use buttons.

    The tweet is from Nov 7, and Heartfire released on the PC sometime in October.

    So the guy who tweeted it either messed up or it's a teaser for Dragonborn on PC in Dec. The guy probably just messed up, but I'm disappointed with Bethesda, because I won't be able to play it in Jan with all my exams so I wanted to play it during the winter holiday. :s

    It's doable with the mouse but more optimal with the keyboard. That's simply because they couldn't be arsed to properly port the UI from consoles so they gave us that crap, it's the same with the dialogue controls aswell.

    This mod solves the horrible UI problem though http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/3863
    And this mod fixes the dialogue controls http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27371

    This mod is also pretty usefull, it places your favorited items in seperate categories, makes the favorites menu way more transparent.

    Though, you should keep in mind that the SkyUI and the Categorised Favorites require the skyrim script extender, it's linked in the description of both of the mods.

    I wonder if they can do it with ALL the standing stones. Anyways thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it out.

    Also, I haven't be able to get the "dodge" mod working. I'll link it: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/20923
    You too? I installed it and the message ingame says it's loaded, all good, but I just won't dodge.

    Well it's confirmed now. Dragonborn is coming to PC/PS3 in "early 2013".

    'We're happy to announce Dragonborn will be available on PS3 and PC early next year.' But Gamers with a PS3 or a PC arn't exactly happy with that announcement. Damn the crapbox exclusivity deals. I had a slight hope that the deal had ended, obviously not.

    Ugh, I like how they justify it by saying that Hearthfire wasn't a full DLC, just a small plugin. Since the original deal was timed exclusives for the first 2 DLC's...
    I don't understand what Bethesda is playing at, pissing off their PC playerbase? First they make a crap PC port out of Skyrim, and then make timed exclusives out of the DLC's for xbox.

    Hmm, an interesting read http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/12/...orn-leak-early

    So apparently spears will only be useable by npc's and when you loot them they get added as arrows? I hope that's just a beta thing, was looking forward to using a spear. :s

    Considering the best part of the elder scrolls has always been modding, you'd think pc would be ahead of consoles.

    You find out about it during the main quest line, in a journal inside the Thalmor Embassy so I don't know how people could miss it.

    It's in this http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/T...ric_Stormcloak
    Ulfric in no way works for the Thalmor. He fought them most his life, was captured and tortured by them and then because of them his culture and religion and his people were oppressed. He is labeled as an asset in the book solely for the reason that as long as there is civil war, both Skyrim and the empire will be weaker, the Thalmor essentially want to try to draw out the skyrim conflict as much as possible. A quick victory by either side (which you end up obtaining by picking a side) is what the Thalmor want to avoid and a great loss for them.

    Pretty much, they'd rather have you playing on xbox so they can get a cut of the sales, instead of windows where they don't get jack.

    As much as my dislike for Bethesda and Microsoft keeps growing because of the crap like this they pull, after reading that leaked information of the DLC, I want it even more. :s

    I don't understand why DLC can't come out for PC and all consoles simultaneously. Do they have a reason, other than greed, to favor one console over another?
    They ask me why I'm bringin' - A baby into battle - That's really irresponsible - And getting them rattled
    I say "give me a break - Get off of my back damn, it" - I didn't learn parenting - My daddy was a planet

    I just have ONE question.

    If I buy Skyrim RIGHT NOW from Steam (for pc), do I have to buy/download anything else, or can I play just with the original game from Steam without having to worry about having glitches/problems?

    This is what has caused me not to buy the game yet. I don't want to buy it JUST to have to download/buy other stuff to fix it or whatever, but I really wanna play the game.

    Nope, Microsoft originaly wanted to screw with the PS3, their main competition by paying Bethesda a bunch of money for the exclusivity, but even though Skyrim on the PS3 is buggy as hell and doesn't even have any DLC's out yet, they already paid the money, so they might aswell screw with the PC players and make them want to buy the DLC on xbox, where they get a cut, instead of windows.

    You can play just fine, but most mods will start assuming you have all the DLC as time goes by.

    M$ pays Bethesda money
    Bethesda makes DLC exclusive for a period of time
    M$ gets a fine return

    That's all there is to it

    However, the PC offers a wide variety of mods that triumphs any reason to get the consolololol version.

    Assuming you have a PC that can run it, of course.

    There´s nothing bad about that as it is just how the economy works nowadays. Someone pays money to get the exclusive rights for something.

    I see no point besides mods why playing Skyrim on the PC is so much better than consoles. Yeah of course you can argue that the mods make the game good and that is true but playing Skyrim with a keyboard is just crap. The xbox controller is vastly superior in regards of that game. So you would have to connect your controller anyway.

    I am still glad that I bought a "crapbox", as some call it here, back in the days. I get to play Dragonborn today and even get exclusive games like Halo 4 or Forza ... yeah feels good to own a "crapbox".
