I imagine they're the same? I haven't used a console in years, and someone already had a xbox die on here while playing Skyrim, so maybe try Ps3, lol.

Basically what is happening is, the PS3 version is having a lot more framerate issues/graphical glitches than the Xbox and PC versions.

You can read the article/polls for more info, but Bethesda has stated they are working on them.

So, right now, the Xbox or PC version is best.

Anybody here got any tips on pickpocketing? I can easily sneak behind someone "hidden" and steal their gold, but I still get caught like half the time. It's a real pain in the arse.
When you choose an item to steal, a percentage will show you how likely you are to steal the item successfully. The more the item is worth, the less likely. This goes up as you level sneak.

360 but tell him to play it off the disk, don't install it.

PS3 has framerate drops once you get a file save of 6MB +. I fixed mine by turning all auto save options off, but you wouldn't have to do that on the 360. Also most reviews of the game give the 360 version about 0.5% more than PC and PS3 versions.

I'd much rather the PC version for the PC only content that will come soon like modding etc, but alas, my PC wouldn't run it on full so I PS3'd it.

What are you laying class and ability wise?

Just got to level 33. This game is just.... Wow. 40 hours in and I feel I've only scratched the surface. 100% getting the Platinum trophy for this.

If you have a solid PC, Skyrim should work just fine. I have a good one, but by no means a gaming PC, and by my surprise, Skyrim works really well even on high graphics.

I downloaded Skyrim yesterday (don't hit me, I didn't want to spend 60$ not knowing what I'm getting in to), played about for an hour. Starts off a bit slow, but isn't too bad, I'll play for a couple more hours and if I still like it, gonna buy it probably.

Have you ever played a TES game before, or Fallout?

This game is meant to last you hundreds of hours. The game's main focus is on exploration/dungeons/quests/guilds. The main story quest is actually not the important thing in this game, it's just a side thing you can do.

To get the most out of the game, you must go out into the world and find all the interesting things to look at/find, and all the quests and things to get.

It's one of those rare games that is packed with so much content, that you can play for 100 hours and not even touch the main story.

My first character (which I stopped playing after about 20 hours) was a mix of sword/magic/heavy armor/smithing.

I've been playing full archer/stealth and am loving it. With the right perk placement, you kill 80% of the mobs with 1 sneak hit (attack bases/camps at night, stay in shadows during dungeons and you can sneak hit most enemies). When you fail to sneak attack them (rarely happens) then it's a bit tougher, but that's sort of the trade off - instant kill first hits, but if you miss, it can be pretty tough to take everyone out. That's where stealth skill comes into play.

Also, you find a shout that allows you to see lifeforms in the distance and through walls, you whisper, not shout, so no one can hear you do it. It's very, very useful for stealth characters. It's like detect life, but in a shout.

I'm really enjoying the stealth so far (level 21 on this character).

So far the only issue I have with the game is Bethesda didn't fix the AI lines. What I mean is.. well, I'll explain in the spoilers tag (Thieves guild spoilers)

Yeah man, super annoying.

I deal with it, though, as there's so many amazing things about the game.

Who did you all marry? I married that one chick in Markrath that hires you as a Dark Brotherhood member to kill that one guy in the cave. She has her own shop and stuff and allows you to buy/sell items, and gives you 100 gold a day income from the store.

For those who don't know about marriage, go to Riften and talk to a priest there, a guy starts with an M.. I think.. and he lets you buy a necklace that lets you marry women you've finished quests for.

Haven't got married yet. My character is still mourning the death of Lydia. He's just not ready...

I kept her alive in my first character, but she is pretty much useless on my stealth archer. She's still alive, just not useful or used any.

I might FUS RO DAH her off the throat of the world later on sometime, though.

I married Ysolda. She hangs around Whiterun market and asks you for a mammoth tusk. She gives me a 100 coin a day, buy/sell from her, and cooks me dinner. I kind of wish their was more to the marriage aspect of this game then give me money and get your bitch ass back into the kitchen and bake me a pie. You can't romance her or treat her bad.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
