    Haha nice! I'm doing something similar too. No home for me, just the World's Greatest Journey To Collect 101 Dragon Shouts. I never even have the achievement to kill 20 dragons. So this time I'm determined to "finish" skyrim.

    I collect companions who wants to join me. My restriction is that my character must "get to know" someone before they can be recruited - so no story-less mercenaries. I even give each companion a mini-story as a reason to why they want to join my charismatic paladin. Lydia is sworn to me, so ICly I'm stuck with her. Faendal is depressed after Camilla seems to prefer Sven, so he didn't want to stay in Riverwood anymore, and thus joined me. He also is great at hunting, so whenever we camp for the night, I send him to hunt for meat and collect firewood.

    Last night I met this random person called Golldir while exploring the land (no fast travel either). Helped him out against the necromancer, and he joined me after he buried his aunt. Even in his dialog he says he has nowhere else to go. But here's the twist - Golldir is not a fighter. I set his aggression to passive and confidence to cowardly. He runs away when there is a fight. In exchange for letting him follow me, he carries all our camping equipment and supplies (those stuffs are pretty heavy). Whenever we go dungeon-delving, he stays outside at our camp to mind the fort. I took away his default heavy armor and shield, and gave him leather armor and a dagger instead. I also set him to non-essential, which means I really have to look out for him - the others are protected just because my game is hard enough, and I don't upgrade their armors as part of my roleplay.

    Finishing up the Companions now, not sure who to take. Thinking of Aela, just because I have too many warriors. Vilkas will be the new Harbinger, and Farkas is likely to stay with him.

    That video just realized how many weapon mods I've ignored. Imma get that punsandog bow (always play archer anyways) and especially dem fists (seeing people blow away when you pile drive their friends sounds amazing).

    Also, I haven't really gone out of my way to personalize my character that much and have his own story on my end. I'm basically the same brash indecisive person in game that I am in real life to where I'll go and wipe out the Dark Brotherhood but then revert the save and join them again.

    That is from Todd Howard. Now kindly piss off.
    So you feel entitled enough to say that they lied to you and sold a broken game to you? Some guys are strange.

    Well as I already wrote I hope that they release the missing DLCs for the PS3 so that all those PS3 players can stop crying over it.

    How am I entitled for pointing out how me and hundreds of other consumers were wronged? He said that quote after it was released.

    Being wronged seems to be a typical American emotion. (This literally happens nowhere else in the world) O.M.G you spilled hot coffee on my leg by accident?! You wronged me. Sue, SUe SUE! Diablo III, now that's a can full of promises that still haven't all come true.

    Yeah that is a typical american trait to be honest. If you look at the lawsuits that are won there then you will notice that americans sue the craziest things (like the coffee thing you mentioned).

    Claiming that Bethesda has wronged you is kinda silly if you compare to other fail games (like D3) which make Skyrim on the PS3 look like a perfect game.

    I'm waiting for Issgard before launching another round of Skyrim.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    Holy crap. That looks like the first mod that could actually rival a Bathesda DLC. Elsweyr came close but was rather short.

    Can anyone recommend any super high quality mods that might easily be missed? (new, havent really taken root or just not so well known) Have to be lore friendly, not skimpy, slutty etc. though. Also all NPC dialogue needs to be well voiced if it's a conversation or a quest. Otherwise they could be anything, homes, armor mods, retextures... but I'm especially looking for a good vampire mod and something that gives items, especially gems, gold etc. more realistic prices. 1000 septims for a perfect diamond seems ridiculous.

    There is an old youtube of some of it.



    Prometheus takes his time but does some really great work.

    Getting SLI sometime soon. Really pissed that I have to cap the framerate in Skyrim lest things break. I hate console ports :/.. (Yes, I am almost certain this technical limitation came to be because of it being mostly designed for the box.)
    This 120 hz monitor is proving to be more of a curse than increase in enjoyment; Having tried it once, I can't live without the smoothness.
    Then it hurts my eyes to play even below 80 fps. Limiting FPS in skyrim also seems to give me massive amounts of input lag.
    Anyhow, going for another playthrough sometime soon.. possibly bloat it with more graphics mods to make the fps cap bearable ;o.

    First of all, I'm not American. And secondly, how on Earth is a company knowingly selling me a broken product not being wronged or me overeacting?

    Are you guys so deep in your fandom that you seriously just downplay any wrong bethesda does to spilling coffee? THey lied and sold hundreds of customers a broken product to maximize their profit, how is this not wrong?

    Seriously, I cannot make it any clearer:

    Quote before release: "Yes, PS3 and 360 have reached a good place of parity….framerate, fidelity, etc. The PS3 version is getting a ton of attention”.

    Quote after Release: “The way our dynamic stuff and our scripting works, it’s obvious it gets in situations where it taxes the PS3. And we felt we had a lot of it under control."

    Those two statements contradict each other, which means they were lying about the quality of the product to maximize their profits at release. So please enlighten me how this could be considered okay?
