    Because it's single player, it should be devoid of a metagame, do you think? I find optimization to be among the most fun part of most any game, and that requires research.

    Up until a point. The data that needs to be processed is too much for one player to gather and analyze by himself.

    I guess that makes sense. I personally want to figure everything out on my own for this game and is one of the MANY draws for me to keep playing. But that's the beauty of Skyrim. Do what you want how you want it.

    Want to find the most optimized build to play the "dead-is-dead" game at legendary difficulty? There's such a massive fan following that you'll never run out of fun guides to play around with.

    Even though my xbox broke i have to say the conjuration/destruction high elf guy i made is working out pretty well. I almost never play a caster type guy in a console game.

    ex: the fables and skyrim

    But yeah its actually a lot of fun. I guess its also a bit easier since i actually know wht im doing + im playing on a t.v where I can actually clearly read stuff.... my t.v at home is that old blocky t.v (but it was awesome when i was a kid), i have a smaller toshiba t.v at my dorm, but it has the better quality.

    The legendary updates were released for the consoles yesterday. I have to say that I am glad that they finally removed that stupid level cap altogether. Finally some love for us console guys too.

    I actually love that you can basically make each skill legendary and thus reset it to 15 as often as you want. This also means that you gain more skill points and thus can max out every skill tree.

    Is there anyone on the PS3 version who can tell me if the patch fixed the awful stuttering caused by Dawnguard? I'm away from my house and am unable to play it until next week.

    I don't have the PS3 version, but I have heard that the PS3 copy suffers form horrible Save file bloating, this could cause the stuttering you described have you tried a new game to check?

    Nah, the problem is Dawnguard. The game ran perfectly smooth until I installed it and a lot of other people have reported the same, even when making new characters.

    So, I have a question, I just went back to Skyrim after a year and bloody love it with the Dawnguard and Dragonborn, now I just completed the Dawnguard story, but would really like to do the Vampire side as well Now, is there a mod that can reset my main quest or something like that Just don't want to level another character to see the other story

    EDIT Found it! Can't wait to start that questline now

    So my main character is now level 555 thanks to the Legendary skills. I just had to create potions that allowed me to get to Alchemy lvl 100 with 1 created potion and reset the skill over and over.

    <---- Proud Resto glitcher Yeah say what you want but I enjoyed doing the glitch on this character.

    Oh and I play on the xbox so there are no console commands that allow me to change my level to 500000.

    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    well that disappoints me greatly

    At least it means my OCD won't stop me from playing the game, due to the 'waiting game' of new DLC and all the myriad of compatibility problems it brings.

    Going to go over http://www.skyrimgems.com/ and plan my most awesome playthrough ever :3

    Oh man that is so disappointing. I really got into the game again with the legendary upgrade and now this?

    So no more DLCs and Redguard was only a pipe dream. Great

  17. #7577
    But... Then what was the point of the large amount of Tamriel that had already been partially mapped out?

  18. #7578
    That's a shame, I haven't played Dragonborn yet, but it feels as if Skyrim's story lacks resolution. In Oblivion a generally heroic and uplifting main quest story concluded with the paradoxical and disconcerting Shivering Isles. With Skyrim, we are left with unresolved issues like the looming threat of the Thalmor. Still, maybe that's the point - being left uneasy about the fate of Skyrim and the world. Or maybe, in spite of what they say now, there will be postponement of the final dlc till later.

    Plans that couldn't work through? A little nudge to help out modders? Don't know but it would have been great if they HAD done something with it.

    And no Redguard DLC makes me sad. The story isn't resolved yet unlike in Morrowind and Oblivion though as the above poster said maybe it's because the next ES game will cover that. Still it kinda makes sense since they're probably working on next gen console tech so working on current gen content for a current gen game would silly from a business and even a gamer perspective.

    I distinctly remember saying Redguard was not a fact yet. Too bad for those who thought it was.
