Skyrim on discount (Steam), plus new free DLC
« on: February 07, 2012, 12:52:01 PM »
First thread over the Grogheads:

Check out Skyrim on Steam.
Bethesda released a new free optional DLC that adds new high resolution textures to the game for even a more beautiful look.

And to celebrate it the game's on discount, 40$ instead of 60$ (yeah, still not cheap and yet cheaper).

Thanks. I've played my money's worth out of Skyrim. If you like it, you'll love it and it will be worth the price.

^Huge open ended RPG set in a Norse inspired mythical world. Has become one of my favorite games in a long time. I had to step away for a while in fear of becoming addicted.

I've still yet to finish it.

My advice is to put off the main quest for as long as possible. I still played after it, but the anticipation wasn't as great.

OTOH, if you really hate those random dragon attacks then you might want to finish it. Dragons will still attack from time to time, but not anything like the frequency if the quest is still open.

Reminiscent of Wizardy I.  Taking out Werdna was easy and anti-climatic.

Wizardy I was the only RPG I every played with other guys I was the only one with an Apple and we played for hours.  When we got to Werdna's cube, we gathered like a SWAT team, checking health, position and magic points. We went in blazing and he only got off one spell.

Good times.

Is it worth getting the Prima guide as well? the two together are just 10 bucks more. Bear in mind that I'm only a tiny bit into
Oblivion and I'm completely lost. Will I get more out of Skyrim if I RTFM?

I wouldn't. There are a bunch of wiki sites out there that can give you help if you need it. Just google "Skyrim vampire quest" or whatever and you'll find what you need.

^I respectfully disagree. I have it and love it. It's really well written and I enjoy the game more because of it. I use it as a reference.

Since face time with my computer is less abundant than in previous years I may just get the guide. I'm starting a diet soon
so I'll just say I'm spending my fast-food money.

Yeah, but you're lame.
