Helgen!

Which town is the photo you put as a "local village" ? I havnt come across that yet....

Definitely agree, absolute best game of the year. Bethesda have really done well with the improvements. LOVE the new UI, the new levelling and perk system is fantastic. Dual wielding is amazing. And the fact the dragons are non-scripted outside of dragon lairs....

Also....you can have same sex marriages, a blacksmith asked me to marry him haha. I saved and did it, to see if I got free stuff, but no, still have to pay the bugger! Not having that!

I'm Level 23. My Destruction is over 50, just can't get enough. Especially with new spells I've jut acquired :D

Anyway thats enough typing, more game playing :D

P.S. I'll take a picture of the dragon statue and book I got with CE! Its MASSIVE!

Yeah. 45 hours playing....

Level 28

Destruction 55
Enchanting 41
Smithing 60 (Arcane Blacksmith ftw)
One Handed 42
Archery 51
Light Armor 57
Sneak 47
Lockpicking 53
Speech 47

I'd say my favourite spell is Chain Lightning. 50 damage and 25 to magicka, then jumps to any nearby people. Wonderful if you get ganged up on!

Well not too bad tbh, the hours are nowhere near as drastic as they used to be...

Yeah I know, for this sort of game sometimes less is more though....on PC there are soooo many mod files from players that I'd just get lost, happy to just have the official expansions.
Visuals is only a small part of this game ;) the expansive world is the main thing!

aaron do you have the xbox360 or the ps3? if its the xbox360 then I've read that installing the game on the hard disk may iprove the loading times but the draw back is slightly worse graphically than if you were running off the disc

only something you have to worry about if you have one, I don't as only a limited number of friends one of which moved hundred something miles away several years back.
but then as I said I'll be waiting before getting this due to not having played morrowind and oblivion.

Xbox 360, and Fowler, there is bugger all loading times...

The way this game is done is far far different to Oblivion.

Dungeons are find are almost all loaded up as soon as you enter, only a few have had an additional door. In Oblivion there was a loading door practically every 2 mins.

Absolutely love this game. Ill be sticking clear of the main storyline missions until I absolutely have nothing left to do :D

Already Arch-Mage, I'm on my way to head of Thieves Guild, but I daren't do the next mission as I want to keep my shiny skeleton "key" :)

Working on The Companions storyline now :)

Im in the Dark Brotherhood now :D working on those! Clairvoyance is a pretty low level spell, you can try Jarls houses, should be someone in each of those selling spells, or the College.
