Nope, I'm in the US. Just wondering how far of a trip it would be.

Also, just an FYI, I'm going to be imagining you in Canterbury Tales scenarios from now on.

Friend of mine is studying English and she's reading the Canterbury Tales at the moment as part of her course. I don't think she enjoys Chaucerian English.

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

****, 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...)

I tried Skyrim on the PC yesterday and didn't like it at all with keyboard/mouse. Is this one of those things where I really ought to have a controller?

Aside from a couple minor issues, I think keyboard and mouse is just fine.

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. ****, 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.

I haven't had any crashes on PC so far. Only real issue I had was having arrows not disappear (for like 8 hours). I had one stuck through my face, and two on my hand. The sexchange console command worked to remove them. Smiley: lol

I just wish your NPC companion had programmable AI, a la Dragon Age.

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?).

I don't know why I keep reading this thread, I don't have this game Smiley: lol

Although I did have a 360 that got the RRoD once, but luckily it was still under warranty. We replaced it and this one has been going strong for about 2.5 years now. I'm still thinking about getting another one though, just because I'm afraid one day it's just gonna RRoD on me again.

I have become a Skyrim widow. I bought Ray the Collector's Edition for the PS3 and surprised him by picking it up earlier than he was planning to. Thought I'd get some bonus *** for that. Nope. Smiley: mad

What is this, I don't even?



In other news, I R level 15. I keep getting distracted by passing quests and dungeons. I've only just finished my first full shout after something like 20 hours.
