Skyrim, Gears of War: Judgment updated

Latest Elder Scrolls game adds Legendary Skills, while Gears of War: Judgment see various weapon balance tweaks.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Gears of War: Judgment today received new updates, bringing various fixes, additions, and tweaks to both games.

As previously announced, the 1.9 update for Bethesda's open-world role-playing game brings a new Legendary difficulty setting and Legendary Skills.

It also addresses a number of bugs, including an instance when couriers appear only dressed in a hat. The Skyrim 1.9 update launched last month for PC.

Gears of War: Judgment's new update brings a few weapon balance tweaks and general adjustments, the first of which will revert all rifles to the values they were at when the game shipped. In addition, stun on smoke grenades have been reduced from 2 seconds to .3 seconds.

The full update report is available in the Gears of War forums.

skyrim with the dlc's becomes a complete mess on consoles. It gets simply too heavy. The couriers showing up without clothes is the very least troublesome.
But a 4 sec. delay to the response to weapon shortcuts (directionals), all your houses original and hearthfire will respawm all the crap back into the shelves, tables, barrels, etc every month no exception, efectively trowing all your items around. Vampires will kill important NPC's, and quest items will get stuck in your inventory more often.
So I hope at least some of these are fixed, because it's just the tip of the iceberg.

This new Skyrim level cap might be the thing to get me back into it.

I thought the title was Skyrim: Gears of War at first lol I was like whoa I think MS might be a little peeved at that title for an update or that is going to be the weirdest amalgamation of two games ever.

Its nice when update descriptions are shown here. I hate having to search to find exactly what an update did.

Lmao I've never seen a courier with just a hat on. That would be hilarious.

Just watching that Skyrim Mods video...they butchered the weapons. Longclaw is not 12 feet long, and Ice is not a one-handed sword worn on a scabbard.

I haven't had any real problems except I can't seem to mine any flawless saphires for Medassi in Riften. I've got 28 bars of gold sitting in my own personal "Savings Bank"and it takes a lot of mining to get that much of anything.in Skyrim. But, not finding any FLAWLESS SAPHIRES is driving me crazy I should be finding them left and right considering how much mining I've done.

HA! Whoa, the College in Winterhold taught me how to build a lazer bow that fires grenades I don't what a lazer is or a grenade but you should see the mess it leaves behind after I hit a Dragon with it.

@ravager1989  With a game as large as skyrim, theres obviously going to be bugs. At least they keep taking the time to fix them.

@ravager1989 It's a big open-world game with a lot of variables. New updates and expansions often introduce new bugs too.

@megam i can't believe you have not bought this game by now. Its only one of the top 3 games made in the last 5 years.

@Shantmaster_K Yeah I've never seen a dressed courier.

I thought the devs wanted it like that, to have them travel with nature or something...

@Shantmaster_K My courier constantly came at me in stages of undress. Always no pants... Only Whiterun though.

@funkinslick  Strange thing for me was that i've never had that glitch. Shortly after the update the courier appeared with no clothes :/ lol...

@juboner I would say you got your moneys worth then because your probably at 300 hours of play

@syafiqjabar @ravager1989 true...its a big open-world game....but i have never seen any game being fixed for bugs that often..skyrim is the first one i have seen

@Fembot_Eulogy @TigusVidiks well, I had the game installed, got the dlcs and installed them. The troubles started, so I deleted the game install and reinstalled it. Didn't seem to work. So I deleted everything and installed everything again. No luck yet.
Anyway, the delay in the shortcuts I  don't like, but I can undesrtand technically. There are plenty more new items in the game world to verify and make sure it's not in your inventory.
But the rest?
Lets' just say that my miscelaneus quests are 60% glitched at this moment.  From repeated quests already finished, to quest items in my possession before I got the actual quest and now making it impossible to finish, to completed quests not cleaning from the journal. And all my houses from Hearthfire are just a crappy addition. You can't really customize the decor. Everything will be trown around each month, when all the ramdom crap respawns in the furniture. (cups, plates, wines, bread, apples, leathers, etc)

@GOGOGOGURT @Shantmaster_K I don't know whether to be pissed off or thankful that in years of playing Skyrim the only bugginess I've encountered are stuck quest items, and a bit of frame rate dropping when the file hits 14MB. Maybe a handful of crashes. Where's all the naked people, flipping carts and dragons flying backwards?

@Leeric420 yeah definitely got moneys worth out of it. i just want to like it like i was but the magic seems not to be there for me with the expansions

@ravager1989 @syafiqjabar Then you havn't been gaming long. Shows the developer still cares about the game too when work continues this long after release!

@Higurashinoni @inaka_rob @megam

Inaka, I agree with you. It's in my top 5 all-time list. I had to stop playing recently cuz I was addicted to it too much!

@leviathanwing @Higurashinoni @inaka_rob @megam Oh boy here we go, lets all jump aboard the opinion train!

Basically, your argument (or lack of) contradicts itself. My statement is an opinion in itself for disagreeing with his opinion. Feels like I'm in second grade again... oh them internetz.

@jecomans @GOGOGOGURT @Shantmaster_K I'll second that. I havn't had nearly the problems some have had and a lot of the reported glitches I've yet to have experienced. Didn't even know about the courier thing. Only consistent problem I've had is freezing after a long session with it.
