    • It’s obvious which one’s going to win, peruly because MW3 is pretty much an on rails shooter, and Skyrim is an RPG. The only questions MW3 is going to get is probably involving multiplayer, and it won’t get many. Skyrim on the other hand will get questions on practically everything, from character builds, to money making tips etc etc.

      • There isn’t really part of pniayg for a small fortune for that business if not everybody realizes all you own personal. Oriental ladies coming back again from your European grocery shopping maintain their very own statements, never in the event of your money back, and yet of showing to the pals.

      • No, you pay Gold for Dage’s Paragon armor. If he wins. If not, it’s going to be Legion Tokens. If Nulgath wins, you eiethr pay AC or Diamonds, which eiethr are not simple to get; one takes ads or real money, the other takes days/weeks of mindless grinding. Once the war is gone, Diamonds will be even harder to grind like before the war. Diamonds cost both time and gold. Derp.

  1. “The rig that we were allowed to play the demo on was a fairly stellar piece of computer”

    Can you give some more details? Do you know what CPU & GPU were in the PC and how smooth was the game – did it feel like 60 FPS?

  2. Unfortunately, I don’t know much about the PC itself…we were timed while using it, so no one really wanted to take the time to open up the properties and check out the exact specs ;) I would estimate at least a GeForce GTX 560 Ti for the video, based on the graphics settings, but I can’t be completely sure.

    That said, the game was extremely smooth, it felt natural walking around in the world while I played (definitely 60 FPS), and the folks from Bethesda assured us that they had done a lot of work optimizing the game for play on as many systems as possible. Even if we have to gear down the graphics a bit for our home PCs, I wouldn’t be surprised to see gameplay that was just as smooth at lower settings (while still looking great).

    Time will tell, but I’d imagine the PS3 and XBox versions will look stellar as well!

    • Thanks for taking the time to reply. My PC should be more than enough to max it (i7 2600 + 2x HD6850’s), but I’m just concerned about crappy optimization. Too many games are released nowadays that run like absolute crap on more than capable hardware.

      • From what I’ve seen, I think we’ll be safe. Time will tell, of course, but I’m confident!

        I did also want to add, for those who haven’t pre-ordered yet, there are some special deals out there now, in addition to the Direct2Drive.com 10% discount. Gamestop is offering two items: a bonus premium map (available for both online and in-store pickup, included in the game case), and customers who fully pay off the game before 10/16 receive double PowerUp Rewards Points. There is also a 30% bonus on trade-in credit for this, and other games, if anyone is a bit short on funds.

        While Best Buy and Amazon currently are not promoting any special items, it should be noted that Walmart is also advertising the map for their preorders; the maps should be available for both the regular and collector’s editions of the game.

        I’ll be keeping updated on this game and others, so once the system specs are published, look for that info here!

      • aff, n o vejo a hora de olhar atrav s daquele elmo de cfreihs e encarar esses desafios. Tomara que o hype esteja certo. Sempre curti os rpgs da Bethesda. Meu primeiro contato foi com Pirates of the Caribbean, onde o game tinha tudo pra ser bom antes da Disney meter o bedelho. Vamos l . Estamos esperando.

  3. Just another update for all of you Nintendo fans out there, if you’re planning on snagging a Wii U when they release, Bethesda’s VP of PR and Marketing has stated they will look at a possibility of a Skyrim port:

    “We’ll look at any platform that will support the games we’re trying to make, but that’s the key thing – the console has to support the game as it is designed,” Hines told ONM. The executive discussed the challenges of bringing games to various consoles, noting that it’s not just the task of bringing a title to a new platform, but ensuring it’s localized to all the relevant languages as well. “It’s a pretty huge undertaking,” Hines said.

    Maybe Nintendo-only loyalists won’t miss out on this latest edition after all! We’ll see what the future brings.

  6. The FOCUS or title of this review should have been “Skyrim PC Preview” since this has to be one of the very few, if the only preview that was done playing the game on a PC! We didnt find out until the end that it was played on a PC…

    The fans that have been following Skyrim have propbably read 100 previews already with the same info over and over again. I’d like to hear more about how the PC differs from the consoles. Besides graphics, how does the interface differ from the XBOX? How are spells and favorites set up using the keyboard and mouse? Ect???

    • Excellent promotion idea, I hope a week will be eugonh to draw eugonh users in. I think we really need a prominent ad for new users displaying it.Also, very nice contest site! Kudos to the designer(s) :)

  8. They also stated that all of the players in these three alliance can join in the magic guild or solider guild.

    One of the biggest games of all time, this budget title features an open
    world where players have the freedom to do whatever they please.
    If I could call a videogame artwork, then Skyrim is artwork.

  9. Although this does not hold nearly as much data as a hard drive,
    it does suit the purpose of allowing save games, if that is all you or your
    child are interested in. That allows us to present the same game across all platforms.

    “I will sign your brother’s peace agreement at the marriage supper in two weeks.

  10. This robotic pool cleaner may be the solution
    that you have been looking for. Examiner: What were things
    the dev team wanted to do differently with this game versus previous installments.
    “But if you want that full-on Pv – E, first-person, you-see-your-hands just like in every other Elder Scrolls game, you can play that way.

  11. She glared, still trying to suppress the fear struggling for control.
    That allows us to present the same game across all platforms.
    While containing the flavour of the period, it plays easily and gives ample opportunity for the Diplomat or the General in
    you to stab your opponents, conquer territories, and build
    an Empire on which the sun never sets.
