The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragon why you no land?!
"Bethesda Softworks is no stranger to the Spike Video Game Awards, having won“Game of the Year” with Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion four years ago. How fitting is it then that they use this year’s awards ceremony to debut their next game. Bethesda Producer Todd Howard took to the stage moments ago, preceded by a group of monks chanting, and officially announced what the world has been waiting for with the world premiere trailer of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim."

* New engine has substantially improved graphics, women no longer look like men with long hair, but rather hot, as they should (see scan)
* snow falls dynamically into the environment, accumulating in crevices, branches on trees sway independently
* dragon shouts are a new feature wherein a series of words spoken in the language of the dragons unleashes powerful spells

The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
I know there is a quest involved with it, but I cant seem to start it.
I tried it with another character and i can buy the house even before I start the related quest.
I have the same issue .
Although my main house would still be in Riften, it has a backdoor to Skyrim so I don't have to enter Riften every time I want to do something at my house. I still want the Windhelm house and make it look baller.
So, as a huge Morrowind fan and pretty big Oblivion fan, I was kinda worried that this game would stray too far from the roots of the series and become a generic fantasy hack n' slash. Well, I only got to play starting this weekend, and boy was I wrong.
I'm trying to go purely destruction + conjuration but am not sure what type opf destruction magic to go for. Seems frost is ruled out since a lot of creatures have resistance to it in Skyrim (dur) but between fire and shock... any advice?
Seems like shock is the "better" choice as long as you can handle the higher mana costs.
Either way, I'm glad pure magic is finally playable and worth playing... it was pretty tough in the past. Though there are lots of other characters I can't wait to try out over winter break!
