I'm kind of torn between my light-armour character that mostly uses a melee weapon but carries a bow because sometimes it comes in handy and has a few spells (a healing spell, an offense spell, and a soul trap spell) and is alright at sneaking because it'll sometimes get you an extra critical hit or my heavy-armour character that is otherwise fucking identical.

Prove me wrong, Skyrim.

EDIT: Oh, and there's usually a summoning spell in there, too.

Think I read that heavy armor won't work because it gives you away this time. We'll see.

My first run character is always a light armored Bosmer archer-mage because shit needs to die from a distance without me ever being seen. :twisted:

Then I dip into Battlemages, Shadowscales, and Bardbarians. My problem is always avoiding not playing them all at once and thus experiencing severe loot/progress confusion.

How do you play a bardbarian? There's no music system in any Elder Scrolls game...

Speechcraft and a giant 2h weapon while wearing a loincloth and humming. You can figure out the parts I do in-game versus the parts I do in real-life. ;)

I'll be playing a magic user because that's just how I roll. I'll probably mostly be going conjuration.

I always go for the human characters, namely the Redguards. I just don't like playing as the more mythical races because they're kinda... weird and ugly. Does that make me fictionally racist?

I always go for a sneaky bow-wielding thief with a touch of magic thrown in.

Who's going to a midnight launch? I have to work Friday so I'm just going to pick it up then.

I found the most effective set-up to be a sword/shield/destruction/restoration user, but little else. My most recent Oblivion character has turned into a sneaker/assassin for some reason, but he still rocks at being a typical knight with healing/killing magical powers.

Skyrim will be completely different though, so I could end up having a guy who beats people with rolled up carpets, who knows.

http://www.eurogamer...infinite-quests

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim promises players a near infinite amount of quests, according to the game's director.

Depending on your progress, the game's Radiant Quest System will randomly generate new tasks for you to complete. For example, an innkeeper might ask you to track down 10 bandits in a part of the map that you haven't explored yet.

On top of that, once you've completed the scripted storyline for each of the game's factions, you'll be able to pick up randomly generated quests at each group's respective hub, such as gem thieving missions or assassination requests.

Bethesda's Todd Howard told Wired that, "The vibe of the game is that it's something that you can play forever."

"The world is probably the one thing that sets [Skyrim] apart from other games," he added. "It feels really real for what it is… It's just fun to explore."

Hate stuff like that. I like knowing that each quest I complete has closure. Hopefully they're easy to spot because I don't like wasting my time on repeatable quests.

That was... kind of a bad review. All he said was, "A bunch of stuff from previous Bethesda games is in this one." And a nonsensical numbered score thing. There was nothing in there that couldn't be either inferred from the title or wasn't already known from previews.

Haters gonna hate. By the way, there was an update to the review that addresses the Online (lack of) scoring change.

It's updated with even more info now but I am curious, what makes a review "legitimate"? Don’t tell me you actually fall for the major gaming companies "reviews" as being legit. :roll: If that is the case you have a lot to learn about how the industry is run. :booty:

The site is called krakrabbit, the CAG user posting the review it is called krakrabbit... I think it's safe to assume we can address krakrabbit directly instead of referring to a third party.

but I am curious, what makes a review "legitimate"?

A good start is when it shows up on metacritic. I also tend to be wary of small sites that get their reviews out before everyone else; it's usually something of an indicator that they either didn't play it completely, or maybe didn't play it at all, whatever the case it seems like they are trolling for hits. You have gameplay videos so from what I can tell you HAVE played it, but I gotta agree that I'm not learning alot from the review, there's alot more overviewing than there is critiquing. I also don't think it's a good idea to give the game a 10 for online when it is completely offline either... if you're concerned about it affecting the overall score then you should probably change the way your scores are calculated. IGN scores different categories but their overall reviews are not averaged. BTW how did you get a review copy?

Yeah, I don't really remember people very well.

EDIT: Okay, I'll throw one little bit into the "what makes you legitimate" stew. If you have to go back and add to your review and change the scoring and all that shit because you were in such a rush to get up it up faster than morning wood?

Bad sign.

As we already pointed out in the review. It is rare for games to not have MP but we did not feel Skyrim should be dinged for not having it. We felt the overall score of the game deserved to be a 10 out of 10. This is a rare occurrence and does not warrant an entire change in our scoring model.
