After getting 3G internet from my phone to my PC, I was able to update and activate my Skyrim.

I have to say without a doubt, it is absolutely the best game I have ever played, EVAR!

I like the interface, it is much more difficult to play a mage now. I can set my mspell favorites, but how do I access them in the heat of battle? Graphics are great, the AI is superb, and I like that when you talk to NPCs you can look around, and not have to read subtitles.
Spells are vastly improved. No more 9 different spells to upgrade, just upgrade the ones you have.

It reminds me of Scotland in a way. The lowlands speak more of "English" while the higher North you go, the more thick the accents are. Also the best College in the world is (arguably) St. Andrew's Academy, which is in NE Scotland (Edinburgh). That's where Winterhold College of Mages is, too!

I can't stop playing this, I didn't goto bed this morning till 5:10 AM. It's immersive. I just had to get to the college before bed...LOL.

I would like to have my magicka, health, and stamina on the screen all the time, too.

I am still disappointed though, that you have to be online to play an offline game.

I was stating, Steam isn't necessary AT ALL. It doesn't need it, unless it's a digital download, or multiplayer. A simple activation would have sufficed. Pirates already know how to get around steam.

Trust me, Bethesda knows.

I found a bug that causes CTDs. Whenever you open a chest, and select "take all (R)". I get instant CTD, but if I select items individually, it plays on. Anyone else?

Just changing uGrids to 7 caused CTD's for me within 5 minutes of just walking around outside.
Played for hours right after when I started the game with the LAA launcher.

You might not think it's worth the performance hit, but it's far from worthless and has a bigger impact on how games look than just about any other setting you can use in your drivers and it's easily noticeable in-game.

I turned off mouse acceleration or whatever they call it and changed nothing else in the configs or .ini's. I haven't crashed yet. I'm level 12, though.
