It uses steamworks, so theres no "not using steam" with it. Steam auto-applies the patch before it lets it start or so I heard.

It's a Steamworks game. It has Steam or it's pirated.

Liking it so far, the engine is better than I though and on ultra there doesn't seem to be any popup at all and draw distance is actually good.

As said, the inventory menu sucks and the textures are not great. Third person is so much better than Oblivion but the mouse seems a bit sluggish. Music is really nice and the land layout seems really nice too.

1920x1080, Ultra settings, 8xAA, 16xAF. you can change the FOV on the fly to suit you. Just bring down the console "`" and type fov 85(whatever value).
