I'm thinking of getting Skyrim and Ultimate, both for PS3. After the half off, and my $20 credit, Ultimate will be free which is cool but.. I'm hearing some bad stuff all around about the PS3 version of Skyrim..
Always wanted the PC version but my laptop isn't a gaming rig. only 4 GB Ram and the newest intel core i3 doesn't seem like it's going to be able to push it too much. What do you guys think? Bite and face some possible issues with PS3 Skyrim or get PC version and see how well it plays?


I'm avoiding it for the same reason. Even with the newest patch some people are still having issues.

I'd just hold off on skyrim all together.
BUT I would definetly go with the PS3 version rather than playing ball with the PC version. At least you know it'll play on your ps3

I'm going to agree with you. I'm thinking I WOULD be able to play it on the laptop but at horrid settings. Main reason I wanted it on PC was for Mods but I think the PS3 version will have to hold me off until the day that I get a decent PC to play, then I'll re buy it on PC (years from now lol).

If you wanted to get it now because of the sale, maybe go for it? Just hold off on playing it till the next patch. xD I know I'd be busy with Ultimate because I just got an Eightarc Sapphire Fusion stick and my friends need to learn who their master is. 8-)

I got the 1000 and put like 65 hours into it. I started having really annoying issues at around 55 hours. I've had more issues than anyone else I've personally spoken with, and it still wasn't much, and was very late. It really is hyperbole to say it's unplayable and that you must wait. It's a great game, just go play it and enjoy yourself! DOVAHKIIN!!!!

If you "got the 1000" that means you played on the 360 version, which doesn't have any issues lol

I realize the PS3 is supposed to have some more issues, but rest assured good sir, the 360 is by no means free of them.

I contacted AZ about it, they issued me a $20 promo for the hassle, and I had a $5 credit, and I just signed up for the AZ card. I use my CC a lot to get stuff then pay it off right away, I figured I should do it on AZ to get some rewards back. So with that instant $30, I bought a Samsung galaxy player 5.0 with a card, figure I can sell my iTouch and make an even trade. Have an iPhone so don't need an iTouch but wanted to get something android to play around with.

/derailment.

That said, I went with SR3 because of the free download of SR2 :)

The PS3 issue is confirmed to get worse the more you play. The more you do in the game, the bigger the file gets which causes the issues.

So, it's only really a huge issue if you plan on playing 100+ hours.

Yeah we just have to hope Bethesda is working to try fix this unlike how they didn't fix New Vegas.

Thought they fixed that in the 1.2 patch?

I'm up to 70 or so hours, no real issues. The patch introduced a new issue where load screens hang for a minute or so on occasion (only happened to me twice), and the game froze completely on me once, but that's absolutely nothing compared to how bad New Vegas was.

IIRC, Bethesda only published F:NV. Obsidian actually developed it.

Finally put in an order. Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension (Wii) and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. $59.98 shipped and two xmas items checked off. Pretty good deal.

I had bought a used copy of LoZ:OoT from AWD, but I'm going to return that used copy. It will cost me a few bucks to ship back, but I'd rather give a new copy for nearly the same price.

Didn't they just recycle the same game engine from Fallout 3?

Had second thoughts and decided to cancel my order. So I got an email saying that Phineas & Ferb was successfully canceled (which is mainly what I wanted to get), but Zelda 3DS was not. So I go to Help, Contact Us, selected the order, checked the checkbox for Zelda and clicked cancel the order and it canceled it. WTF? So why wasn't it successfully canceled before? Grr. Amazon seems to be going out of their way to piss me off lately. I'm happy I was able to cancel it, but not happy that they tried to trick me into thinking I couldn't. Grr.

Now I've been trying to figure out something else on the list to pair up with Phineas, but I'm coming up with nothing, or at least nothing I really need now and/or would also be about $40 to maximize the deal. Oh well.

So, is this dead? At least with Saint's Row 3?

So I still want to get Phineas, but can't decide on what to go with it. Do we know when this deal will end?

@doubledown: No, the deal is not over. The page is still up. Just SR3 doesn't qualify now.

Debating whether to pick up Catherine and Rayman Origins. I know in the Gamestop thread they're having a B2G1 and I actually have a lot of credit to Gamestop, not as much as Amazon.

I was sort of thinking about getting Halo: CEA and AC: Brotherhood because I have $67 in Amazon credit left over after all the Black Friday shopping. However, I have a feeling that Amazon is going to offer something up between now and Christmas that is too good to pass up. I guess we'll see...

Waiting as well. Tough call, but I can get the same games on AWD for the same price as a fall back.

Activision is a publisher 100% of the time (unless you go way back to the Pitfall days 30 years ago); Bethesda publishes and develops games.

Say wha? I got it for $19.99 a year ago. If it hasn't been that cheap again recently it will be sooner than later with Borderlands 2 coming out in June.

I still see it on the list, but yes it is now $29.99. At least the 360 version is $29.99 and still available with this deal. Not sure about PS3.

You got the GOTY version for $20, or the standard (or platinum hits) version?
