I can't see the point in doing that. Such metagaming ruins the game completely.
It's like making uber potion/armour and then complain how fighting dragons etc. is easy.

Though now when dragon one-shots people or nearly kills them, they complain again.

Yahtzee's review - (I know some folks probably won't like the guy, but I always enjoy his reviews). Surprisingly he was actually positive about Skyrim! I guess Shooter Season 2011 ate up all his snarky cynicism.

Well, Yahtzee's always been positive about RPG's as long as they let him do whatever the hell he likes and have decent character design (which does not include anime, hence his hatred of JRPG's, since it lacks both in his eyes).

To be fair, a Destruction Mage needs all the help they can get. Magic stops scaling and becomes progressively less effective as the character levels. So cost-less magic isn't as game breaking as you'd imagine.

But interesting, one-hand skill affect the chances as well? I think I heard from some poster before that one-handed skill doesn't affect daggers?
I think one-hand perk increase dagger damage. But one-hand enchantment does not

Skyrim is pretty fun to play. But one thing that Skyrim may have to learn from Japanese games in general, is allow re-rolling new characters having new elements. I means we basically can play 90% features of this game with a single character (the 10% is warrior vs mage vs rogue build,and whether to join Imperial or Storm-cloak). With different routes, so you can re-explore the games from a completely different view point. The game already really carefully built. So a few more routes should not be hard to implement

Ya know I'm sure I've seen him like at least one JRPG or at least mention so in passing in one of his reviews - grudgingly so - that a particular one was tolerable (outside of early FF games). But yeah, generally he's not a fan of the androgynous teenager dressed via threshing machine faff fest (personally, I can see his point in some cases - but I've never been big on turn based combat).

Watched his Oblivion review again too, it was pretty damn hilarious. Comparing the two was interesting.



luls. Drauger panels totally have a Rocky Eye of the Tiger montage song playing in the background.

Rofl that's so true.

But I dont think you level scales that much. It just rises the number of powerful enemies per group.

True indeed. If enchanting hadn't made my spells mana-free, I'd have been in deep trouble when I was done with that.

"Oh cool, money and a dragon soul" shouldn't be the instant reaction when you encounter one.
You do realize to have this amazing armor that you can do this you have to get 100 in enchanting, maybe even alchemy, 100 in smithing and then create this amazing armor and wear it.

You could you know just wear normal armor if you WANTED, to get your epic dragon fights.

All too true. Also the fact that Master-Level magic is actually less useful in many combat situations than your Expert-Level magic kinda makes the payoff of being a pure Magi kinda unsatisfying once you hit 50+ (Firestorm is actually the most useful of the Master spells when combined with either Ironflesh, Become Ethereal or Invisibility). Being a pure Destruction mage is extremely fun at the first 40 levels though, especially if you can get the Impact perk for Destruction early - Hadoukens FTW.

I really think they should've gone on a 5-tier damage enhancement perk system for magic spells similar to your combat skills (ex. Barbarian 1/5), or at least provide a passive boost to your damage as you level up your magic skills.

****

On an unrelated matter...



Fighting a named dragon in Blackreach of all places was a very WTF moment for me...

Also, I've finally unlocked the Shield Charge perk on the Blocking tree. All the pain of having to sacrifice offense for defense finally paid off big time. Bowling over Draugr Overlords and Giants by smashing through them is too incredible for words

Yes, they are weaker than 2 hand/bow/one hand but when you have -100% mana cost and stagger, it basically stun lock anything out there.

The sneaking in this game could be better as it's weird trying to do backstabs in some parts so I'm not sure if it's a bug. After I got into the prison I was able to backstab all the guards no problem but I did aimed higher at the head.

In regards to the story how does Elder Scrolls do it? I just finished becoming a Thane for almost all the cities and completed most of the guilds except dark brotherhood and now I'm meeting with the Blades for the first time. On that matter I fought for the Imperials. Is there a canon part or do all of these events happened?

On that matter about Thalmor

While it might be nice having a game about going to war against the Thalmor, I have a feeling the next Elder Scrolls will skip this and start centuries after the events of it. Perhaps it might become a content for future Skyrim expansions instead.

Something like this happened before: the Warp of the West. Its essentially what happened when ALL of the endings of the Daggerfall game CAME TRUE. AT THE SAME TIME.

And I'm expecting a DLC/Expansion that'll let us deal with the Thalmor eventually. The Nazi Elves have to get their come-uppance.

And true to Elder Scrolls tradition, I'd bet the next game will start off with you as a prisoner in a Thalmor concentration camp.

Congratulations to Skyrim for getting a 40 out of 40 from Famitsu.
