Dude! I go to the midnight launch tonight! Work is going to go by soooooo slooooowlyyyyyyyyy.........
Is it midnight? I always noticed it was about noon (est) on release day for other games I preloaded from them. If it is midnight... kiss sleep goodbye.SyphonX said:You wouldn't be able to play it anyway. PC version uses Steamworks, which means you can't play it until the release-time drops on Steam, which is Midnight tonight (US East). Basically you could install it, like a pre-load, but it won't activate.RejjeN said:Got it in my mailbox this morning, turns out my DVD drive is borked and won't read the any discs suddenly :/
Ah, I get it. The ol' "I get to review skyrim and if anyone else tries to before me they're fired" method.Steve Butts said:Scheduling reviews is a tricky process, particularly during the "all hands on deck" period we go through each holiday season. The key considerations are 1) how familiar the reviewer is with the genre/franchise and its competition, and 2) whether or not they have the time and attention to meet the deadlines.bliebblob said:I'm curious, how did you decide who got to testplay the review copy? Office lottery? quake tournament? cagefights?
In the end, let's just say it's good to be the editor-in-chief.
Don't apologise, that happened, these people need to be reminded of their previous fuck ups. Seriously, I wish I could rep posts on these forums =DZhukov said: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.
Ah, cheers for answering my question. It's not as bad as I thought it was then. I guess I'll need to learn to be pretty quick on my feet, and assuming the skill trees are similar to the ones in Oblivion, get the Acrobatics dodge roll as fast as I can.Ragsnstitches said:You can block with a shield, 2 handed weapons and one handed weapons as long as your not dual wielding.
Put simply, blocking is dictated by your left hand in this game (left bumper/trigger or whatever the corresponding mouse button is). If your left hand is occupied by another weapon, or magic, then you can't block but your offensive power is doubled (roughly) so that's the trade off.

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?
