i rented the game friday night to see if i like it.
i'm going to have to buy it. the only decision now is to buy it for the 360 (like my wife rented it for; located in the game room) or to buy for ps3 (which is located in my living room where i like to hang out). i want it for the ps3, but im lvl 14 now and i really dont know if i want to start over.
Wouldn't mind trying the game. Will it work ok on any PC or do I need certain requirements?

I'm using Geforce 9800 GT, 4 GB memory and a Triple Core Processor. You could run on minimum requirement if you don't meet on Quad Core specs and 4gb Ram.
NOT QUITE MY TEMPO
eta: also, i decided to buy on ps3 because that system is located in my living room where my big chair is. the game room, where the 360 just has a couch and isn't as comfortable for gaming and chillaxing.
i haven't had any enemies fall through the ground, but i wonder if that's what happened to lydia. she completely disappeared on me and i had to go back to a save from an hour before to get her back. tho someone said if she does disappear, to try and find her at the castle first.

Level: 26 (Currently)
Armour: Ancient Shrouded Armor, Ancient Shrouded Gloves, Ancient Shrouded Boots, Nightingale Hood
Weapon: Iron Frost (Iron Warhammer) - 11 Frost Damage every 9 Seconds (I created and Enchanted this weapon by myself starting with Iron Ore and Animal Pelts for that more personal touch to skull cracking)
Memberships: Thieves Guild - Leader / Nightingale, Dark Brotherhood - Listener, College of Winterhold - Arch Mage, Bard's College
Houses: Breezehome (Whiterun), Honeyside (Riften)
Thane: Whiterun, Riften, Morthal
Current Problem: Markarth Guard Glitch
i went (nearly) full out warrior. my character is crispin bloodfire (fans of elfstones of shannara should recognize both names) and i'm a nord (which my son laughs at me and calls him a nerd). i'm lvl 20 (my 2nd lvl 20 - got there quicker this time around) decked out in ork/dwarven (flawless) armor with flawless skyforge sword and elven sword (has a soul catching enchantment on it) and flawless elven bow. everything i wear/use was made by me except the skyforge sword (tho i did improve it to flawless). my horse is frost (from a quest in rivenwood or whatever - that theives town in the south east). i'm a thane in whiterun. didn't know you could be a thane in other towns as well so i'll have to work on that. my 2nd is lydia who is decked out in full flawless ork armor with a flawless dwarven shield, flawless dwarven bow, and flawless elven sword.
my one hand skill is like 55+ and my smithing is over 60 at this point. i'm bad with names, but last thing i did was infiltrate the thalamor embassy - and now i have to track some blade dude down. i likely will do a bunch of other quests before i get to that one. probably go up to winterhold and then do that quest on top of that mountain (azura or something like that).
also, i know the assassins are going to kidnap me again and i plan on doing the same thing as last time

Ive been on a daedric artifact treasure hunt spree; just to warn y'all, some of it is really twisted.
Currently I'm level 51. I'm using majika enchanted glass boots gauntlets, master destruction robes, arch Mage circlet, gaulder amulet, ebony blade, sanguine rose (that guy is a beast), spell breaker shield, an assortment of glass and ebony enchanted weapons, and azuras priestess is my follower (she is a tank battle Mage when out in high level armor and weapons, a word of warning for horses and dogs with her, she uses a lot lightening)
Still playing as Klael the Argonian
Currently I'm level 33 and still wearing Ancient Shrouded Armor, Ancient Shrouded Gloves, Ancient Shrouded Boots, Nightingale Hood tho I have upgraded them all to Exquisite.
My latest weapon (which I again created from scratch using ingots and hides) is "Frost Biter" which is a Flawless Dwarven Greatsword with 58 Damage, 19 Weight and deals 12 points of frost damage to Health and Stamina to its target.
I am also now a Werewolf with the Ring of Hircine
I have my smithing, enchanting, and alchemy to 100; I'm doing a great job of avoiding the temptation to exploit the game because I don't want it to feel broken and easy. I had friends that always consoled or used "God" mode in games; I want a challenge. I am mostly a magicka user; I have the weapons & potions for when I want a change of pace or when a good ole drauger death over lord or vampire master who is level matched +5 or so levels.

I'm probably going to start over again for the heck of it. I was only like level 20 and kinda all over the place, I wanna try to be more focused in the number of quests going at one time and really just take this slow. I mean let's be honest here, it took 3 flipping years to get this one, how long do you suppose it'll be before the next one? Assuming there'll be another one.
I have a question, in Morrowind you could create a basic intelligence boosting potion, drink it, and then use the resulting boost to craft an even better intelligence potion with higher boost levels & time. As long as you had the ingredients you chain creating INT potions to get a massive boost, this would help you develop Alchemy quickly (I believe INT was the biggest factor in potion quality) and as a secondary benefit the increased intelligence helped you instill better enchantments.
Does this still work in Skyrim?

does anyone know if the followers have max levels? because despite her being fully decked out in epic ebony, she goes down quickly...that didn't come out right...you know what i mean.
oh and i'm now lvl 33.
btw, if you get thrown in the markath jail, be very careful when you escape. if you hit any of your fellow escapees (and it's nearly impossible) they will all immediately attack you. it's best just to stay out of combat till you have your gear.

I've got a question about the game, is it FP point of view? I have a hard time adjusting to that view, but I REALLY want this game. so if its strictly FP POV how long does it really take to acclimate to it?

Fear is faith in failure
when you level, you can raise your Magika (which i believe increases your pool of magika and i THINK something else to do with magic, but I'm not totally sure), health, and stamina (which lets you sprint, use power attacks in melee, and raises your carrying capacity). there are item enchantments, pots, and even blessings that raise all of these.
there are also things to raise sub-categories of those. for example, something that raises ONLY your carrying capacity.
now, in addition to all that when you level you get a point to spend on a perk. perk's include smithing, one-handed weapons, enchanting, destruction (spells category), etc. each perk spent in one of those trees gives you an additional ability or something. for example, if you buy the first one-handed weapon perk, you get plus 20% to one-handed weapon damage. i think the first smithing perk allows you to make steel armors and weapons (while the last one allows you make dragonplate armors). there are pots and enchantments that raise these as well.
so you could use a pot to increase your enchanting and enchant at a higher level for a small amount of time.
i switch to FP when i'm looting shelves as it's easier to aim at items that are out in the open...especially when they are packed tight together (like books).

So who else is addicted to making their own equipment all the way from mining for ore and hunting animals for pelts - to the actual creating of ingots and leather / strips - to creating the weapon / armour - to enchanting them with soul gems - to upgrading them at workbenches and grindstones?
Sure stuff you make may not be as powerful as some stuff you find on your travels but I think it a more personal touch when you are adventuring
