Five stars, eh?

So... about as good as Dragon Age 2 then?

Good to know.

I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Sorry, but that shit-stirring opportunity was too good to miss.

I've only read the Guardian review (prominent UK paper, 5 stars) and the main reason I'm looking into the reviews so much is not to know whether the game is good or not, I think everything can assume it is, but how annoying the bugs are.

From what I've heard so far, they're not New Vegas bad.

Oh boy, thank you for reminding me of that... thing.

As for the facial animation, do Bethsesda use motion-capture? or is it all just animators?

Good one dude.

Nailed it.

We are blessed with another classic. LAWL.

I just hope it's better that the steaming pile of crap that was Oblivion.

I just wonder, with all the dragons in the game, will a sneaky archer still be viable, or will it be gimped in such fights?
Aaah, the sneaky archer. Pop an arrow, the AI falls down and disregards the arrow poking out of him. Fire another arrow and the AI typically dies. It's fun but gets a little old

I dont think Stealth is an option when it comes to killing a dragon....

Screw it! I'm going to the midnight release in Seaford for this sucker! I can't wait much longer, and the lock-picking looks easy for anyone who played the shit out of Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. I was a lock-picking master in those games, rarely broke a pick even on the hardest locks.

So much want. So little time.

Over the next two weeks I have 5 pieces of coursework to finish... I really am seriously annoyed I won't be able to play this for so long. :(

I'm already at fever pitch in terms of my excitement for this game.
I wish I didn't have work tomorrow.

*Ahem*

Sorry, was up literally all night on /v/ as the hype for this one is going beyond 'God Emperor of Mankind' fanaticism. A cult which I am happily joining at midnight tonight. :)

The idea of getting lost in the game actually appeals to me. One of the things that I liked about Morrowind.

Every Website I've looked at you have watch a Skyrim trailer before the Skyrim review. /facepalm.

Also, good joke but the DA2 review was Greg and this one is Buttman himself.
Oh I just noticed the tiny text.
