I get my copy of Skyrim today! I ordered it off Amazon as soon as it came up for preorder. So frickin' excited! It should be here any minute. I just checked my shipping and it is in town, now just gotta wait for it to get here. I have played all the Elder Scrolls and this one looks better than all of them combined. You can kill dragons and get married and become a werewolf! The graphics look beautiful too.

Anyone else getting in on this?

Some of us, yup. Mine's coming in via Amazon, but nobody will be at the apartment to receive it. I'm mildly apprehensive that UPS will take it back to their shipping factory, but odds are they'll just drop it off at our community office.

I just started using GameFly and Arkham City came in 3 days ago, but Skyrim is next in line. Arkham City is too awesome to send back just to get Skyrim, plus I see myself keeping Skyrim for a couple months.

I got my copy yesterday. My xbox died immediately after I started to play it. I'm talking three red flashing lights. Sigh.


Fortunately I made my housemate let me use his xbox for a few hours. It's gooooooooood. Smiley: drool2

3 heart challenge? If that's what I think it is, isn't it technically impossible?


edit: never mind, I just remembered you don't have to pick up the Boss' heart container.

No Smiley: mad it was an old one. I got it in 2008 or something. Impressive it's lasted this long, tbh. I'm convinced it's because I never connected it to Live, though.

Skyrim needed to install an update on it. The update installed and then almost immediately afterwards I got the red ring. Smiley: motz


My cousin said I can have his spare one, I just need to find the time to go to his house in London to get it. Smiley: glare

3 years isn't old for a 360. I have one that's 7 and running like a champ.

95% of the time they go RROD because the x-clamps (clamps holding the heat sinks in place) exert too much pressure on the board. The heat from playing for extended periods of time exacerbates this problem and the solder cracks due to the flexing. Based on your error code it's a simple issue of reflowing the correct component. It's really easy to fix them.

There's a $15 kit you can install, in addition to some sanding, that will basically keep a 360 from red ringing until the next generation of consoles come out (at least).

I'm not getting any error code, though. I never have. It's just three red flashing lights. There's no problem with the power supply as far as can tell. So from what I've read online that means it's f*cked.

I've seen very few cases where it actually gives a primary error code. What you need to look for is the secondary code.

Hold down the sync button and press the eject button 4 times in a row slowly. A different amount of lights (the 4 sections of the power ring) will light up each time. 1=1, 2=2, 3=3, 4=0. The 4 digit code shown this way is the secondary code and will let you know what is the likely cause of the red ring.

That really sucks Nil, sorry.

I know the modern 360s are way better where the failure rates are concerned, but I'm still afraid to get one because of the RRoD.

That's really nice of your cousin though. :)

Where are you in the UK anyway?

I don't actually hate the Canterbury Tales. The language can be annoying, but many of the plots are pretty **** enjoyable.

Hell, I've read a lot of British LEGAL documents for my history classes. So I'm becoming increasingly immune to this stuff. :P

I took an entire class on the Canterbury Tales in college. We read the whole thing in Middle English. It was an interesting (and actually kind of fun) experience.

(Yes, I was a biology major taking an upper level English course. Liberal arts, etc...)

It's really preference. There are a ton of people who abhor ES games with controllers. There are also plenty of PC gamers who are using the 360 controller.

Really, the PC version is the best version. The graphics on a high-end rig are noticeably better, your load times are lightning fast, and you can mod the game. And since you CAN use a PS or Xbox controller, if you want to, there's really nothing stopping you. Hell, you can even hook it up to a TV if your really wanted to (though IDK why you would, since a rig of that quality is probably hooked up to an awesome monitor).

Of course, if you have a low-end rig, the console versions are better.

My main monitor is a 32" HDTV.

And frankly, while the performance is definitely best on PC, with the amount of crashes the game is prone to, I don't blame someone for choosing console at this point. Now, once those issues are fixed, and once there are mods out, then yes. PC is the way to go.

Playing on PS3 here. It's been a pleasantly bug-free experience for me thusfar. No freezing, no glitches, nothing.

There's one minor irritation though. The 'radial' menu seems to not work if my analog stick is slightly off-center when I open it. I have a really old pair of controllers whose sticks don't always center properly after being let go. So I have to fiddle with the analog to make sure that it's properly centered before the menu can be operated.

This is also a minor issue with lockpicking, which seems overly sensitive. The slightest touch on the analog causes the 'lockpick' action (the one to actually open the lock). Sometimes my analog sticks will stay slightly in the direction that I last moved them. So when I try to open the lock and fail, breaking the pick, on the next pick, the stick will sometimes still be off-center, causing me to accidentally try, and insta-fail, another pick attempt.

Of course, I realized yesterday that I've probably been playing most of the game with a disease that affects lockpicking. So that might have had something to do with it. But why I wasn't given any clue about having the disease (I found it by chance after checking out that section of the menu), I don't get. There should be a visible effect on your character, or clear text indicator.

I wonder how long I've been running around with random diseases affecting my character.

They tell you when you get the disease, and if you look at the skill menu you'll see that the skill is reduced. So even if you don't check the actual spells section, there are alerts.

Just getting in the habit of hitting a shrine whenever you are in a city might be a good idea. Though it's always good to check your diseases after fighting vampires (and werewolves?).
