I know the awesomeness if Skyrim is not getting hijacked by Twilight!
And yeah, being a werewolf in Skyrim is much better than being a vampire, where you are weakened in too many ways for it to be of any benefit. Not to mention once you reach stage four, you will find it nearly impossible to complete quest or interact with others. I've contracted the disease twice, but a quick pop of potion gets rid of it before it becomes nearly impossible to cure without a long quest play through (provided the character you need hasn't died).
I still find new and interesting nooks and crannies in this world every day; some just leave me staring at the screen for a few moments. I must have watched a dragon lazily fly around the area around White run for 10 or more minutes from a nearby cliff side last night. Sometimes new perspectives of some of the areas I frequented make me stop for a second and take it in.
I don't know how any MOTUC fan that plays video games isn't into the this game.
With that said, I may be spoiled and used to playing MMOs. I can summon my mount without having to find it, my armor/weapons, abilities are laid out in a character sheet, and the crafting professions are easy to follow. The graphics are nice, but that doesn't make up for the lack of a mouse (I'm talking the 360 version). I'm not saying the game is bad, but it is hard for me to adjust.

the horse is a little wonky (i don't even really use them since you can usually fast travel near something and then run to it; and they aren't that much faster than running; some will fight for you which gets them killed; of course i had one get killed while i was trying to get off of it), but a trick with horses and followers is to fast travel to somewhere you've been and they will appear next to you.
for weapons, armor, etc, you can mark them as favorites, then press the up button (on consoles) to open your favs menu and cycle through them.
*except for those cool ghost weapons. if i find a way to upgrade them or craft stronger ones on my own, i will definitely switch out for those!
I just learned about smithing iron daggers to build your smithing levels up. I jumped from whatever they start you at to level 54 in a days play. Bestest of all is that It's not cheating! Whoo hoo!!
one of my friends had been telling me about his dog in the game for a while, but i didn't find one myself until last night. but then he died while i fought bandits 10 minutes later...
there's a quest with a dog and that one will follow you around until you finish the quest line. since he's an important quest npc, he can't die. i can't remember the "city" it starts in. it's in the southwest, but it's not the dwarven city on the mountain. it's the one close to the dark brotherhood. quest starts with a guard telling you the smith is looking for a good dog as you walk in.
anyway, the dog is really annoying. he continually pushes into you and stands next to you. he almost pushed me off a cliff when i was exiting a cave. and he makes it really hard to get things off of shelves because he's constantly pushing you out of position.
incidentally, my first housecarl was killed while i explored the dwemer ruins in markarth. i was fighting off several spheres and one of the centurions (that's the name of the really big ones, right?) and lost sight of my sidekick. i was losing the battle fast, when i remembered having a powerful fire scroll. i used it to kill the robot, but couldn't find my housecarl. then i dove into the water from the high ledge and saw her corpse floating nearby. i don't know for sure if the fall would have killed her or if it was the scroll i used, but i suspect it was the latter and that bums me out. she always made me smile when she would begrudgingly carry all the junk i had lying around.
I always go adventuring solo for those very reasons. NPC followers do nothing but get in your way and either stop you from picking stuff up or pulling levers because they just won't move or else they jump in your way and get killed when you hit them with the swing of your massive axe which was meant for the Draugr in front of you
figure some of you might get a kick out of this.

Somewhere bewteen Skyrim and Arkham City is how a new MOTU vid game should be made
i beat the 2 main quests last week. i was level 51 decked out in draeda armor and dual wielding draeda swords so it was pretty easy.
i decided to start over with a rogue (who uses magic) dark elf character. i used the exploit during the tuturial opening and got my stealth and one handed up a bit.
pick pocketing is one of the worst skills ever. w/o pots or enchantments (not really that available at low level) it's difficult to level up. i get caught 90% of the time which forces me to have to pay a fine and loose all of my stolen goods.
it's much easier to just walk in a store, sneak, and steal when hidden. i mostly steal crafting goods and money - so i don't have to worry about selling it later. tho that will change soon since i started the theives quest.
I waited until this week to finish the main quest line. I started it at level 62; that one part with all the draugr was a pain in the ***. They were all level matched or higher death lords or over lords. I am still using the same character because unless you commit perks, you aren't necessarily married to anything other than race and sex. Mjol is an unkillable npc, or so I'm told. I married her for that reason, an always easy access tank follower. I'm getting tired of her, so tonight I am going to fus ro dah her off a mountain and see just how unkillable she is I am currently working through the dark brotherhood quest, along with the deadric quest, this stuff is twisted. But I guess dragon shouting your wife off a mountain because you are tired of her isn't the nicest way. It isn't my fault bethesda didn't include a devorce option.
my tank married aela. he's whipped.
i don't think my rogue will have any other followers till i get to quests where i can't sneak attack with a bow any more.
Oh, I have level 100 conjuration (okay, I am level 100 in all majicka), I can now cast two thralls, atranocs, zombies, or dremora, it is blissful to sit back and watch the two twin dremora run around yelling "I smell the blood of the weak" LOL Also, if you want heavy armor but don't want to waste perks, reach level 90 conjuration and do all the college of winterhold quest, and you can craft daedric armor all you want without smithing perks. Also, I am now finding all the armor types I want in world once I hit level 65. It is also awesome to cast master level destruction and watch the world around you come to an end. So my friends asked last night, "how did you kill so and so" I respond "I blew up the room in flames and killed everything at once!"
Edit 1-26-2012: I Fus Ro Dah'ed Mjol right off the top of the Throat of the World , by the time her body hit anything she was at the edge of disappearing. Confirmed, unkillable NPC follower. I took her through a few dungeons and did master level destruction spells that wiped out even the Draugr Death Lords while she was downed, she stood up right after the rampaging chaos still breathing. I guess my character is married to an immortal.

Anyone made a MOTU character like King Grayskull, Vikor or Teela?
Also, on SkyrimNexus there are some MOTU related mods:
Masters of the Universe Prince Adam outfit
Skeletor Nightingale Armor Retex - male only
Obligatory Chainmail Bikini (Battleground Teela?)
New Skyrim Mounts - Sabrecat- Mammoth - Bear
No Power Sword or Havok Staff yet, but I'm sure there is a modder who would give it a go
I know there is a Power Sword mod for Oblivion, so why not Skyrim?
Techno Power Sword
Found this 'Mod Request'
This is what I would love to see:
Complete He-Man outfit
- He-Man hair (a disguised helmet)
- Wristband gauntlets
- Furry boots and pants
- Power Armor
- Techno Sword (so you also can make King Grayskull)
+ a Battle Cat mount with saddle
(maybe a shout: 'I HAVE THE POWER!' with some boost abillities)
Complete Skeletor outfit
- Havok staff
- Boot shins
- Gloves with clawlike nails
- Skeletor mask with hood
+ a Panthor mount with saddle
- Snake staff
- Snake armor
And a mod there your skin can be blue (Skeletor/Orko/Faker)
Any thoughts of what powerstats the different parts shoud have?
Power Armor: Resist magic 60% and Increases your health by 70 points
Wristband gauntlets: Increase one-handed by 50% and ???
