Save us Master Garalt from this mockery. Every other game that came out this year other than the one you starred in it is an utter profanity for ours PCs.

Gothic 4 looked better than Skyrim too. it had very nice texturing and lighting indeed.

Yeah. You buy it on retail disk and it hooks up to Steam.

There is no ultra setting for textures, just high. I recommend using the tweak in the ini I post in that thread that was started about it.

animations are the worst thing i noticed about this game so far, with Bethesda having id part of their team, they should have incorporated Rage animations into Skyrim.

They really didn't intend for you to use mouse/keyboard in this game. The locked and out of sync x/y axis is downright annoying. The menus can't be controlled by the mouse (but for whatever reason you are given a mouse cursor.) Don't bother changing the keyboard bindings because it doesn't save them.

Yep, this is a console port, and it shows. Good thing I haven't bought it yet, I was looking forward to trying it out on my new rig, such a shame.

Somebody just go ahead and gift me this game on Steam... Merry Christmas to me, right?

But I think I'm gonna go trade some crap in Monday at Gamestop or something .

Oh man, what lameness. Regeneration health which pretty much kills the need for heath potions unless you get low on heath during fighting.

So much hand holding in this game and regenerating health in games just pi**es me off. So far the game is way too easy and I'm cutting down enemies with ease. I remember getting owned just outside the prison in Oblivion.

Try playing the game for more than an hour. There are non-leveled enemies that can one-shot you early on. And I really doubt that last comment since every enemy in Oblivion was level scaled.

Besides who the hell plays an Elder Scrolls game expecting difficult combat?

The menus are obviously not designed for a mouse, but you can certainly click on them.

I am a bit annoyed by the default UI since they specifically said that the PC version was getting a unique one. That is a flat out lie. Still, it only takes an hour or so to get used to it and not notice anymore.

I just wish you can set hotkeys for weapons, the favorites system isn't bad just cumbersome. I do like how it remembers if you were using certain weapons in pairs.
