I felt like we might've had a thread on this already, but I couldn't find it.  Skyrim comes out this Friday.  In my opinion, many of the changes they discuss go a long way toward moving Elder Scrolls more to what you expect from an RPG these days.  They've added crafting, and removed some of the banal aspects of the leveling and character system from the previous games.  Also, it has dragons.  I went out and put in my pre-order, and am very glad that I'm off on Veteran's Day. 

In the interest of getting excited, here's a dude playing through his first 5 hours.  Needless to say there are spoilers.

I am pants-poopingly excited for this game, which comes out 4 days before I leave on a 12 day trip out of the country.  Pretty much everything they've changed about it sounds like it's for the better.

Equally shitty-pantsed for this. It looks like it'll combine the best parts of Morrowind and Oblivion, and hopefully have less of the bad parts of both.

My local gamestop is opening at midnight on Thursday to sell it. I'm going to run in with a wad of money and my hands covering my face.

PS, if you watch those videos you may want to mute the sound.  The guy playing is an extraordinary douche.

This will be the first time in years that I have spent over fifty bucks on a game. I'm pretty confident that this will be good value, as I'll be too busy playing this game to leave the house.

I will be working my ass off this week so I can play this next weekend, despite the fact that I have three exams following that.

The Elder Scrolls have been ruining my grades for almost a decade now. Who am I to prevent that tradition from continuing?

I was playing Oblivion all week in preparation until I remembered how flawed Oblivion was.

Anyone with an order on Steam can now pre-load it.

I hope it lives up to all your expectations, I'll be holding off on it until much later since I'll be playing Saints Row the Third in less than a week.

Sure, just watch out for the naked Redguard armed with a 4-foot 'sword' who wants to steal your mount.

Fuck, why did I agree to work tomorrow morning. That was dumb. I can't even stay up late and play Skyrim at midnight because I'll be really tired and shitty.

Is it really unlocking before midnight, or are you on daylight savings time?

I'm in QLD, but it's unlocking at AEDST for some reason.

WHICH IS NOW. whenever this 'play' button does what it says it should do. I feel ripped off.
