Default Re: Bethesda, most embarassing CPU optimization of the decade

I'm a programmer by trade. The sad thing is there probably would've had to be a small amount of extra coding and then go into the options of the compiler to check the boxes off for the CPU options. Wham bam. Optimized code.

Add to all of this the fact the screen shots suggest the graphics aren't hardly any better than Oblivion's. I mean, this game is DX9 based, right? Why don't we all start wearing bell bottom jeans so we can all look like hippy fag shaggers?

I was kicking around getting this game. Forget it. Or if I do get it, I'll wait until it hits the bargain basement bin, around the $15 price or so.
the game is still a lot of fun, and the mod community has stepped up again to bring this game alive.

i know buying the game might feel wrong because it is true they were lazy with the pc version, but the gameplay / story / open world is just soo much fun..

add in a 1 or two mods and you will start to love this game a lot.
