This review is from: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Video Game)
Time passes really fast when you are playing this game. The first six hours went by in the blink of an eye yesterday ... my character is at level 10 and I feel like I have barely scratched the surface of anything. If you like these kinds of games, you will be hooked because Bethesda has managed to create something which really nails it on every level. I am a heavily magic oriented player so I spent most of my time so far in the mages' guild in winterhold. For some reason though the Dark Brotherhood wants me dead and sent an assassin to kill me. I was just messing around with some conjuration spells in a forest glen and the assassin was killed by this flame creature I had conjured before I even knew what was going on. Looted the body and found a note saying they want me dead. Stuff like that just happens and it is awesome. Dungeons btw are really fun and very well designed. I do have one gripe that I see has been addressed by some other reviewers who gave a low rating for the game on amazon. That is that you have to pause the action to switch spells. In Oblivion, I could instantly switch spells with the d-pad and then cast them with RB while wielding a sword and shield. In Skyrim, you must assign a spell to one hand or the other, so it kind of feels like you have lost your RB button. I can understand this complaint. However, if you have posted about this, keep in mind that your RB button is not idle. It has been reserved for shouts, and you will obtain shouts eventually although you have to play along the main quest until you get the first one. I have none as yet because I am focused on the mages' guild for now. However once you do you get shouts, you can instantly cast them with RB while also dual wielding whatever you choose. The bottom line though is that this game is basically like Oblivion on steroids. If you liked Oblivion and spent 200+ hours playing it like I did, you will be addicted to Skyrim. Having playing all through yesterday and now it's 4 am and I'm getting up to play some more rather than get some sleep, this is probably the best game I've ever played. That's a lot of praise coming from a life long gamer. Again, so long as you like RPG's as opposed to say, MW3 (which a lot of people are playing non stop right now as well), this is the game for you. BTW $65 almost feels like a very low price if you were to actually measure out how many hours you are going to spend playing this game over the next year or so, and divide it by $65. I could spend $65 in a heartbeat at say, a Jets game at the Meadowlands, but that money goes a LONG way when playing Skyrim. To sum up...why am I wasting my time typing this review? Time to go play Skyrim.

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim - Graphics Comparison LOW-MED-HIGH-ULTRA 1080

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim – Graphics Comparison LOW-MED-HIGH-ULTRA 1080

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim graphics comparison. I got alot of feedback asking for a graphics. So I have created this video to hopefully support some of you out. Get pleasure from icon smile and please comment on the video as any feedback is really beneficial. **Added* My point., the pc is capable of Significantly greater res/detail textures then what the game delivers. when you see a xbox/ps3 game that looks virtually identical to the pc version, it means they spent no time in fact producing the game for computer. If they had the computer version would have had considerably greater res textures and tessellation alternatives. IM NOT saying it looks bad, im saying its a crappy port, that had practically no time put into it. If games did not want to code for consoles most games would look ALOT much better. Even Battlefield three which does look significantl y much better on pc was held back a bit by consoles. if all the work/time they spent porting the game to consoles was spent on just the pc version imagine all the extras it would have on top of whats there allready. You can develop a mid finish gaming rig for 400-500 canadian now. thats a quad core with a 550ti or 6770 and 8gigs ram. it will play anything at qualitys higher then consoles. so the excuse that some men and women cant afford a computer is bull. yesyes you can get a utilized 360 for bucks, but thats utilized, and thats six year old hardware. the ‘new’ xbox and other console coming out will be in the range of a decent computer price tag wise, so actually, there is no excuse. Gaming is about enjoyable, I agree with that. but atleast when I started gaming
