Access the Sound menu from the Control panel. In the playback tab, right click on speakers and select properties. Select the advanced tab on the new screen and select 24 bit, 44100Hz (Studio Quality) from the drop down menu. This fixed crashes for Owen last night.
Yep. Gonna check that setting when I get home for lunch. Lunchtime won't be long enough to test if it fixes the problem though. I should take a day off to troubleshoot this issue! It is of utmost importance!!!

I went into a mine to clean out some rift-raft that were running a "protection" racket, came back out and found that my horse has taken out a hag (hargraven?) all by itself.

This game is a realization of the potential of the Elder Scrolls series in my opinion. As much as I liked about Morrowind and Oblivion, they both had me losing interest within 20 or so hours of gameplay because of a lack of strong narrative and an overemphasis on non-linearity. I'm one of those people who get paralyzed by too much choice so hugely open-ended games like this can wear me out pretty quickly. That said, Skyrim manages to avoid this effect by making each side quest, dungeon, town, etc. so compelling and relevant that I never feel conflicted. I'm so engrossed in the rich story and setting of the game that I always want to keep going to see more. I doubt I'm even a quarter of the way through the main quest but I've spent about 26 hours with it so far, and I'm sure I'll spend at least that many more in the coming week. Expectations met and exceeded!

Everything is going great until Skyrim's troll physics kick in and then hilarity ensues.

LMAO and the animation is terrible sometimes. Animals still move like they twisted around on the spot and look like they are not touching the ground right or floating. The rabbit animations are pretty awful.

No, are you sure you just didn't run into a semi-transparent troll?

This is gonna be a stupid question. I saw the answer on a loading screen, but as mentioned earlier, the game loaded too fast to see it.

How do you requiver an arrow after anchoring it?

Yep.

Also anyone notice that arrows and such stay on your body forever? I have an arrow in my cheat and some ice shard in my ass, and my character looks retarded while running around like that.
