Haha

I'd have so much profit if I could find the Skyrim "mudcrab merchant"

Hmm, somehow I ended up using two handed weapons... Need to go back to one handed for a while and build that up...

But yeah I need a lot more magic resist on my armor/shield AND some nice ranged attacks. Those ice spears are pretty deadly.

Heh anyone else find the enemies using dragon shouts on you to make you drop your weapons both extremely irritating and extremely funny at the same time?

Yeah, the undead boss fights seem to have alot of that going on. The first time it happened I thought my prized (at the time) sheild and sword were gone.. until I found them again on the other side of the room!

Take a trip west of Solitude and look for Meridia's statue. The ensuing quest will end with the sword "DawnBreaker" in your inventory. A very nice weapon for handling the legions of Undead you face down in the depths of Skyrim. . .

Oh, and if you work on your shield skills, you can get the perk that lets the shield absorb magic attacks if you block them.

I hope DLC comes along, like that battle manor (can't remember its exact name off-hand).
Yeah the houses really do suck. The one I got in whiterun is very cramped and everytime I go upstairs I hit my head and get stuck for a second.

Anyway if you complete the mage's college quest in Winterhold you get the Archmage quarters which is quite large, and way more space to put and organize stuff.

And the places you might be thinking about in Oblivion are Battlehorn Castle, and if you were a mage you wanted Frostcrag Spire. I had both places though I preferred Frostcrag Spire.

Anyway I haven't come across a place like Battlehorn Castle in Skyrim yet, but I'm not where near finishing the game.

You know what sucks? I am traveling around xploring caves and son, but for some reason the old dragon spots, where i killed a dragon, for some reason those dragon are reborn, ruffly my dragon kill count is 19 cause i spent 13 souls on shout upgrades, and i know i killed around 6 or 7 before i knew about spending souls on shouts, now does anyone else here have the same thing of dead dragons re-apearing? I actually had to kill two dragons at hte same time and spot, ANDhadto kill that stupid blood dragon again, but this time it did't "desolve" and i could take it's soul...

What I found weird is that that while at the mage college a fire dragon attacked it, I went inside for cover, came back outside and he was gone. Went back inside the college, then went to leave again (all within 10 minutes) was set upon by a frost dragon.

I guess they alternate in appearance - frost, fire

Yeah the first time it happened I was like WTF just happened -One minute I have a sword, next I just have my fists

Anyway I just switch to destruction spells to slow them down. I'm a dark elf.

Mod on skyrim nexus to make your horse sprint faster, going to try that out tonight! He is a stodgy thing.

http://www.skyrimnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=934

It's fun/not fun trying to find your horse after he ran away from an attack or just wandered off while you were fighting. Someone asked to be able to whistle for your horse. That was a great feature of Red Dead Redemption. I mean if you could tie him up it wouldn't be necessary. If in RL you didn't tie your horse and he wandered off you would deserve looking far and wide for him, but baring that the whistle would be nice...

Here's a little patch that can help out some with crashing games. It helps prevent CTD on Skyrim, it might also work on other games. i haven't tried it with others, if anybody wants to give it a go and report on it. just open it up and select your skyrim.exe and patch, not the launcher the main .exe. hopefully this helps people out with constant CT'D i know it helped me out. also what kinds of fps are you guys averaging? i got mine with everything turned up at 1360 x 768 and i average about 82. i do notice a drop in frames near the collage in winterhold but it only drops like 10-15 so not a big deal for me.

They silently sent out a 18 MB update to Skyrim that tied TESV.exe into Steam the other day, that also broke the ability to use the LAA patch. People got pissy. They took it off the skrimnexus site. It doesn't work anymore if you had Skyrim Auto updated. Or manually updated. Have to use newly posted "4GB Skyrim" on skyrimnexus now if you want it enabled.

Discuss: Bulletstorm
So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
