LOL, have anyone experienced the Giant club bug, if they one shot you, you might fly a couple hundred metres into the air, but man those guys are tough. The Dragon seem easier.

As mentioned, the way some enemies warn you is very cool. Easier to back out from a wrong turn. I also like the smaller dungeons. In Oblivion some of the 3 level places were quite a chore, but these are fun and all tell a little story, more like the buildings in Fallout.

^ noticed that too, I guess its designed to load from disc at 6 or 7MB/s, when you have a 280 MB/s SSD drive it flashes so fast you cant even read the first 3 words.

Compared to the long loading times on the console variants, the PC version of Skyrim is a godsend.

Spiders don't like fire very much

Also, I saw some bandits try and rob a necromancer and just slung a fireball into the pack and happened to kill one of the bandits and the necromancer at the same time. The 2nd bandit when I turned and looked at her (note that she was standing there while I looted the bodies) only when I turned to her she said something to the effect of "I'm feeling generous and won't rob you THIS time. Now turn and go before I change my mind."

challenge accepted. Didn't move an inch. 5 seconds later she's coming at me with an axe

I dropped a chest piece of armor in the street of one of the towns while sorting through my inventory and this random NPC comes up and asks if he could have it then picked it up and put the damn thing on

Not sure if it's legit or not but someone on the something awful forum claims he dropped some valuable loot on the floor of a crowded tavern or something and a brawl over the loot and ultimately some deaths happened.

I've got it installed on a regular old drive and it still loads before you can read it all. It's pretty impressive how fast the loading in this game is.

Yeah, I think it's left-alt. Haven't tried it myself.
