    Just watched the demo in the OP.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

(seriously, high enchanting and +damage on ring/amu and gear, and it's just too simple. :P )

    It's not that hard once your sneak level gets decent though at master difficulty. I have little problems with any type of monster except fire breathing dragons, but I just brought down my first ancient dragon (a fire breather at that too!), that was an imba fight, one hit and I'd die. Thank you little bridge in the middle of nowhere. :P

    I'm level 29 now on my archer.
    Sneak is OP in Skyrim. I'm currently at 70 sneak (hooray for the run/walk perk) and I'm practically invisible at mid-range unless I shoot an enemy like 3 times and it lives. You're three shotting dragons as an archer!? Jeez. My archery is at 60 and it takes me forever to kill some of the boss-type monsters I find, even with sneak attack damage bonuses.

    EDIT: At 5 words of power with no dragons...God I spend way too much time going out of the way.


    I also like how Skyrim isn't as much of a dick as Oblivion was about stealing and pickpocketing. In Oblivion, if you stole something despite being undetected, guards would randomly show up to arrest you. :roll:

    My archer is 100 now, and I got about 80% extra damage from enchants on gear, wielding a daedric bow (legendary), and now at master diffuculty I have to shoot bosses about 10 to 20 times or so, some dragons about 30, but with the sneak bonusses and a hiding place and use of the slow time perk, so you can keep doing the sneak attack bonus, I can do it 3 times faster, so stuff dies in 4-7 hits. Dragons see through sneak easy tho, so after one sneak attack bonus hit, it's usually all normal hits and normal crits from the perk after that. So they always take a bit of time.

    But at adept diffuculty, it's just laughable. Too easy. :P

    Anyway, if you need some dragon souls, if you follow the main quest a little bit, help whiterun kill that dragon and then go to high hrothgar, fetch the item for them, then arngeir at high hrotgar can locate shouts on the map for you and the locations that look like a dragons head icon on the map always have a shout word and a dragon protecting it.

    At that point I would personally suggest side tracking the main quest. I just finished the main quest and at even at master difficulty the last boss is a joke though. My toughest fight was my first ancient dragon when I didn't have a shout to cripple him.

    Meh, the main questline is short. I expected more.

    Yeah, at this point I'm thinking the Stormcloacks are the least bad option (note however that I haven't played through either the main story or any of the faction quest yet-I prefer to spend dozons of hours exploring and going on side quest, first)...and I was actually leaning towards protecting the Empire when I started the game.

    WTF? I just found an ice cliff racer in Southern Skyrim.

    Wait; if all skill level ups progress your character's level, then the level cap must be quite high unless the developers scripted one. One thing I don't get is how choosing a race with skill bonuses in some ways neuters your ability to maximize your amount of magicka, health and stamina. It seems assbackwards and leaves one with the impression that when Bethesda first developed their leveling system in Morrowind (the spiritual predecessor of Skyrim) that they overlooked the consequences of that feature.

    Hm. I haven't progressed pass level 20, but the level scaling seems fair. Like @Fluffywolf mentioned, a player can tweak the settings for a more satisfying gaming experience given the raw material of the game. Quite lovely.

    Overall, the game surpasses both of its predecessors because it draws from the positive aspects of both while still denoting the same "Skyrim" with new worthwhile implementations. However, I've already heard of at least one near game breaking glitch and several other errors that, if caught soon enough, should come to the attention of Bethesda before they dole out updates and patches.

    The nice thing about the PC version is that you'll have the modding community to fall back on. The console version offers no such luck.

    Yeah, but who really wants to buy a gaming computer when you could nab a console for a 150 bucks if you're lucky? I prefer to compartmentalize. Doesn't Microsoft have enough people worshiping them through their various products?

    Well, the trend of games recently has been showing that the consoles are becoming a bit dated, graphically speaking. I'm not a graphics-whore by any means, but I don't really anticipate the PS3 or the 360 being the "next gen" in the next 3 years because of actual graphics whores. Compare Battlefield 3 on a badass PC vs the PS3 or the 360. Nintendo is already going to release a new console soon; Sony will be releasing the Vita (which looks AWESOME.) Etc. Plus, with a PC you can play most games that have ever existed now through the hacking/mod/emulation communities.
