Tried my best to live like this game doesn't exist... started watching trailers yesterday.. bought a new graphics card today... my life will end.
My wife pre-ordered it for me and told me to take the day off work!! Value for money is what this game represents to me, days of gameplay and an experience like no other....Cryo-tube set for the 11/11/11....
You know this is a great game when grown men are telling us their wives are putting restictions on how long they can play it.... (:
@dxBIGBOSSxb Dude she's a keeper haha and the sh!*iest thing is that when it comes out i wont even be able to play it.. a lot anyway.. cause ill be so deep into a research paper, but christmas break im going hard on skyrim =]
@JoGargos Yeah I think you may be confused with the speed run article, where two employees at Bethesda raced to see who could "beat" the main quest in the quickest time. These are two guys who practiced the exact strategy to beat the game, and then legit RAN through the game, skipping over dialogue and the majority of the fighting. For normal players, that main quest will probably be 30 hours, and that's without considering all of the additional side quests and guild quests, and general exploration time. You are looking at a game that could be up to 300 hours for any one character.
@ tjlethal187 Lol, my wife is putting on times for when SHE gets to play the game! I barely paid it off not 30 mins ago and she's already talking her class and stats build for her character! XD
@BraveryRanAway I agree, my wife is already putting limits on how much I can play and we don't even have the game yet!
@JoGargos ok well if you read that full article it stated the speed runs for oblivion and morrowind which where both around 2 hours, could you have beaten the main questline in oblivion in 2hours, possibly but you would have to run past everything possible and skip dialogue when you have to talk.If you truly were a fan ( a true fan has to read every scrap of detail about the elder scroll games) of the elder scrolls you would be 100% sure that this game is going to be absolutely amazing
@monktheking well considering it was in oblivion and morrowind ( probably in daggerfall but i have never played it, same with arena) i don't see why they would take it out
Didn't watch the interview - wondering if pickpocketing will make a return. I loved picking pockets in Oblivion
"The game looks great. But a single player game of 2h. with random enemies/dungeons/history, I'm fearing for the worst." I knew gamespot's speedrun article would only confuse some people.
" The game looks great. But a single player game of 2h. with random enemies/dungeons/history, I'm fearing for the worst." What does that even mean?
@Dominicobaggio it should be available with all pre-orders...but most retailers dont promote it yet.

Does every pre order come with teh nerdy cloth map or is it only special shops? (UK) I want that map but i dont really know where to order it from...
@ Doontime lol, you said anal. On a side note, is it November yet? The one year I could care LESS about Halloween... ugh
@Whitescorpion. Contradicts to mindlessly played? Yes. Contradicts to lore? Nope. Alduin is the Nordic variant on Akatosh, His nick name is 'world eater'. Alduin Created this world, But has destroyed many worlds before, legends even say he 'ate' a whole nordic village, back to the age of 7! Now he came back, to destroy the world again.
I loved oblivion and morrowind both awesome games tho no reason to fight over them games from what i seen so far. . . . Game of the Year ,,, Looks like ill be really happy with this game and cant wait :)
this game better get a 10 i'm tired of seeing 9.0 and 9.5. scratch that this game will receive a 10.
Question. Wasn't Akatosh, the chief deity of the Nine Divines, the 'Dragon God of Time'? And what about Martin? He certainly didn't turn into a giant crab at the end of Oblivion. I mean I am looking forward to the game but making all dragons evil is kinda contradictory to what we already played.
Oblivion was awesome. Skyrim looks even better. Do they make a collectors edition that comes with divorce papers? Some of us older gamers may need them after spending countless hours with this game.
@doontime well said...i was going to respond to him, but its too much bother trying to talk sense into some people. You have saved me the effort :)
@ARAM_28 you can kill my neighbors whilst you wait, if you want...its not quite the same, but it could still be fun? :D
@Humorguy_basic , how won't this pass the Oblivion sales? Everything about this game is much better than Oblivion. And What does YOU having to be the first comment have to do with anything? You are just one person out of millions and I'm sure that doesn't count for crap. A gamer should be admiring the work that has gone into this game and not being anal about it.
im counting down the weeks, man im so hyped for this game...its the only game im bothering with for the rest of this year, sure there are many other great games, but to me they are nothing compared to this.
This interview is ooold,i guess enough have been said about this game already,bring it on,i'm ready!!!
Hell with Batman, MW3, Battlefield 3, Assassins Creed, Dark Souls, AND ALL THE OTHER BULLCRAP RELEASES THIS FALL... SKYRIM WILL RULE ALL!!!
Would really like to know about the modding and tweaking in this TES. Nvm. Google helped me out on that subject
