    Probably was killed for being a snitch.

    To be fair, the questions asked in the OP of the BaK thread have pretty much already been addressed, aside from one that can only be answered by someone with the GOG version.

    I think they only said it'll give you invulnerability for a limited period of time and that you can't fight while using it. Although it was pretty cool that you could solve a quest with it.

    If more dragon shouts could be used to solve quests then they'd be a tad more interesting to me. Right now, they're just spells with long cooldown periods.

    skyrim achievement list. Don't think it was discussed here:

    http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game ... ievements/

    Don't care about achievements, but some info can be gained. Namely:

    Taking Sides
    Join the Stormcloaks or the Imperial Army (10)

    War Hero
    Capture Fort Sungard or Fort Greenwall (4)

    Hero of Skyrim
    Capture Solitude or Windhelm

    Looks like the main quest will have branching paths. I will of course side with the Empire and put the nativist dogs in their place. :smug:

    They are probably referring to the fact that you still have to fight off alduin in the end, but the achievements pretty clearly show you get to pick a side in the conflict and that the other one is cut off due to the "or" achievements listed.

    In other words, it's like the shivering Isles MQ.

    I saw a preview on IGN the other day which the dude playing said he was killed almost instantly by 3 trolls guarding some dragon wall, and killed in one hit by a spriggin in a place he wasnt supposed to be. maybe the level scalng wont be quite as bad as oblivion after all

    Bethesda games could be great if they didn't forget to add story RPG elements.

    They are still quite fun imo even with all their flaws.

    "This game which has absolute piece of shit gameplay would be fantastic if they added a story."

    The only cool thing in that video was seeing Ezio in Soul Calibur 5.

    Why is the interview so BRO, they are talking about fucking video games, who are they kidding? Although those dragon finisher animations combined with Oblivion combat (Block > hit > hit > block > hit etc.) makes the :retarded: of the interview quite appropriate I guess. Pretty scenery as you explore though, Bethesda still at the top of their game :thumbsup:

    It's a bigger area than Oblivion so undoubtedly better (MOAR Hiking!), even with what seems like a shittier statistics system as Oblivion's was so bad that it being downgraded doesn't matter. All in all, HARDCORE "RPG" FANS GET PUMPED, 11.11.11!

    The gameplay will be shit. The graphics will look dated. The story will be herpaderpa.

    I like that they snuck in the clip of the giant being utterly without animation when he's picked up and thrown.

    The graphics look quite good. The gameplay will hopefully have improved from Oblivion. So far, it looks like a decent hiking simulator with light RPG elements. Excitement growing a little.

    It's just the same fucking gamebryo as usual, how can it "look" good?
    Also, I can't believe how they could make the interface even more clunky, soulless and cumbersome to navigate through. Truely Bethesda are the masters of trolling the people.

    They just can't get the physics right, can they?

    The sword impacts don't seem to bother opponents too much..
    The troll doesn't even blink when nuked with a fireball..
    The draugr flying into the roof when zapped by chain lightning..
    And ofcourse.. the famous dragon picking up the giant..

    It looks like this stuff hasn't been fixed since Fallout 3.
    I just find it absolutely rediculous.. and i'm not even a graphics whore ;)

    They really should play Dark Messiah of might and magic sometime.. like others said before me.
    It's not perfect but still.. more believable.

    EDIT:

    The puzzle clue on the Golden Claw looks like a concept taken/stolen straight out of Resident Evil.. which isn't a bad thing if they did it well.
    Hope there is more of that.. could be interesting.. but i highly doubt it.
