I killed my first dragon and it was rather scary, afterwards I was like 'HOLY SHIT!!!! I just killed a dragon AAHAHHHHHH' but eh yes I'm on 15+ and its just getting tedious haha.
It was a dragon burial site map, delivered to the blades. Did you look at it?Wintermute_ said:reclaiming some truly unimportant and inconsequential item and returning to town
Because dragons usually send a notification via email before they swoop down from the skyWintermute_ said:a dragon randomly shows up. Completely out of the blue. No lead up. No suspense. Just... go slay that dragon.
The story is about the threat of dragons attacking settlements. It was attacking a settlement. Not sure the Whiterun 'King' would be bothered if there was a dragon a vast distance away.Wintermute_ said:Nope. I must walk 2 minutes out of town. Into the middle of a field.
My first dragon wouldn't bloody land. Varies I guess. -_-Wintermute_ said:Thank heaven he didn't remember he had wings
The Witcher 2 was flamed for including a difficult dragon-related experience at the start of the game. Skyrim would have made no friends by making it hard. Or, you can play on Master difficulty.Wintermute_ said:above all UNCHALLENGING fight possible. I had a tougher time slaying the city guards!
This I get - Bethesda had to spread it's resources thinly, no doubt, and work hard on 'big picture' procedural systems to make the world feel alive rather than concentrating on fine detail. Mods can't come soon enough.Wintermute_ said:Here's my problem with Skyrim: It focused on populating a massive world where you can truly do almost anything. The problem? there is no reason to do anything. Dragon slaying is just as mundane as killing a wolf pack, and just as difficult, which is to say not very. When making the game, the developer smeared a wafer thin layer of story over the sprawling landscape and sent it off for the players.
I guess. In one of my saves I've only met 2 random dragons by level 26. Weird.wurrble182 said:i really do think the game could stand to lower the spawn rate of dragons the more souls your carrying around though...
Ohhhh don't worry it's just the first dragon it needs to be easy, it gets harder and harder until eventually you finish off the game with an epic battle to the death with Alduin World-Eater...Wintermute_ said:-snip-
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. Although your a bit inflammatory about, you have an EXCELLENT point.bussinroundz said:I'm really sick of hearing this bullshit, that just because It's an open world/open ended game that the writing/quests/characters have to be shit. WRONG !! Try playing New Vegas. I know none of you fangirls want to admit it, but wake the fuck up. Bethesda is only good at making some nice outdoor enviorments. Jesus F. Christ.Wintermute_ said:And really, its okay. RPG's are okay where they are now and where they are heading. We got the Elder Scroll series there to give us freedom and exploration, and studios such as Bioware to give us story- and emotional-context.
It's okay where they are heading ? One makes LARPing/hiking sims and the other makes interactive movies with homosexual relationships. OK.
How did they do that?Hammeroj said:The sad part is that Skyrim also fucked up the RPG part of the game.I forgot said:It's these kind of stories that I wonder how anyone was excited for this game. The problem I have with Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fable and other games of similar blood is that they fuck up the action in Action RPG.
For that reason, I was more eager to play Rayman Origins than this game.
Monster Hunter has some of the most fun and interesting fighting mechanics I've ever played in a game. It takes will thought out strategy and kills to kill them. I freakin' love that game.Christopher N said:I must admit, fighting dragons is not what I hoped it to be. To be honest, I wanted "dragon slaying" to be an interesting fight...Like when I play Monster Hunter, they did Dragons crazy but it presented a unique challenge
