Pure archers sure were broken though. It got to the point where i kept stunning things over and over and they couldn't get up (it just happens when your marksman gets really high). It's so cheap.

Well, I remade my character last night and after 2 hours or so of game play, I've made it to level 6 and just about one shot anything and everything with the sneak attack bonus. Pure archers are easy mode at low levels and I keep hearing that they get even easier at higher levels.

Sad face :mellow: , if these are the recommended requirements, then my Dual Core Gateway P7805u will not be able to handle this game without sacrificing the graphics. :chinese:

The game becomes a joke, you just start spamming arrows and the enemies keep falling over. You can shoot fast enough to keep stunning them. What's better is you seems to deal stable damage no matter what armor they're wearing and you don't have to keep "sharpening" your bow. With other weapons you get blocked all the time which is annoying, and with magic some enemies have good defense against it.. but a bow hurts everyone.

Hmmm my 4 year old desktop machine could probably use a graphics card update. I'm probably building a new desktop after the holidays anyway, so I'll probably wait to revel in the glory of Skyrim until spring.

I wish you guys linked to imgur - it's pretty much the only photo sharing site not blocked at work. Or I could actually do my job. Hm.

Dammit. I shouldn't have bought Oblivion. Now all I want to do is sit at home and play it. I'm getting no work done because all I'm doing is sitting here at work watching the clock tick and counting the hours until I can play it again. I have a feeling Skyrim is going to be exactly the same feeling, which is another reason I will wait to get it.

I have my gaming laptop and a PS3 controller, and I'm playing at my college during my 3 hour breaks LOL! When Skyrim comes out, it will be just in time, a month before winter break and by that time there will be updates to fix all of the glitches! Muahaa I will go DARK when Skyrim comes out!

So..I see here you listed village miller as your job for the last 5 months. Could you tell us a little more about that and how it qualifies you to be a programmer?


Ummmm yeah so one of my strengths is that I have all my fingers so it makes me faster at typing. One of my weaknesses is that I took a wood chip to the eye so I can only see half of what I type. I think I would be good for your company because I am...

1) A hard worker (I was top miller 3 months in a row)
2) I smell like pine
3) If someone has an axe to grind with me, I can actually do it and deliver it perfectly sharp!
4) I will fight off any trolls you have outside picketing the company
5) I can live through hardship and pain... I am from Kvatch!

Let me know when you decide! Thanks.

It is ok ishkabible, that is life in Kvatch. It is good as long as you didn't take the mutton and head of lettuce from my barrel. I need my mutton!
