    360 has 60 days of exclusivity. So I think another month.

    60 days? Frack. I thought it was just 30. I hope Bethesda is enjoying that pool full of money they got.

    I uninstalled Skyrim because a horse mod messed it up. Reinstalled it and streamlined my mods. I went with something completely different and started as a female Breton mage. The one thing troubling me is I can't find a good set of armor to use. The mage robes/hood are obviously useful but provide no armor. I actually really like the guard armor (specifically Winterhold) but none of the mage hoods match it (meshes overlap and colors don't match).

    There is this armor, but I don't like how the creator made it so difficult to craft, even for the clothing version.

    There's also this, but I was trying to avoid black since I've worn it with past characters.
    http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/9645

    This was somewhat promising but the creator is annoying because they refused to list how to craft items or where to find them and don't want people posting it in the comments either. I'm someone who wants to use an item from a mod as soon as I install it. The mod also requires a nudey mode which I hate to use (messes with other character textures I use anyway).

    I might actually re-install this mod when Dawnguard comes out and make this character a Vampire Lord since they'd go well with that.

    If you're going with a female breton, that first armor is the best way to go i think.

    I rmember i had to uninstall Skyrim once because a mod messed it up. It sucks. These days i tends to avoid mods that made sweeping changes to the game.

    So I'm downloading Dawnguard as I type this and really have no idea what to expect besides vampires out the wazoo. My character was a vampire for about 2 months gametime then got the quest to return to normal.

    I actually preferred to be a vampire as the character I'm playing as is a sniper type (sneak, archery, enchanting) and the extra 25% sneak bonus was really helpful. I just keep going back to Faendal and drinking from him. I leave him one gold everytime I do so by the time I was cured he had around 50 gold.

    My sneak and archery are both around 90 right now. Any suggestions what I should work on after they hit 100?

    They got 60 days, so PC and PS3 users get to wait another month.


    I spent about 6+ hours re-installing Skyrim, downloading mods, and installing them. And out of boredom tonight, I wrote them all down with links to download as well as other mods I like (but don't necessarily use). I also included links for Nexus Mod Manager and Skyrim Script Extender with tutorials on how to use and install them.

    None of the armors I recommend are female armors that only cover the nipples and crotch.

    I was going to exclaim, "Holy balls that's a lot of mods!" but I have about 50-something installed myself.

    And I don't want to count how many you have there, but it looks like it's close.

    With the exception of Auto-Unequip Arrows, the only mods I use are under My Mods. The rest are ones I used at one point or just installed to try out.

    The armor mods I'll install when I use a character with them and then uninstall when I'm done. The rest I don't use anymore.

    I do use a custom mod where I've tweaked the appearance of some NPCs to be less fugly. Like I removed all the eye makeup from Farkas and Vilkas and got rid of the hideous warpaint on Aela.

    So I take it Dawnguard won't be out for the PC and PS3 until September then? That's a bummer. At least I have my Daedric Armor set now.

    Well, I encountered this rather amusing Horse Glitch in my game. It's the traveling Nobleman accompanied by a lone Imperial guard you can bump into every once in awhile. Of course I decided to mess around with him and his glitched horse.

    I was mistaken, it was only a 30-day exclusivity with the 360 which as expired. No word on any release date for PC/PS3 though. I'm probably not getting it until Steam has it on sale.

    http://kotaku.com/5929541/skyrim-dawnguard-30+day-xbox-360-exclusivity-has-now-exceeded-30-days

    I actually don't use the mod myself. I know people like to use mods that include stuff from other games, but I usually don't.

    ^^CD project actually gave fans permission to use their Witcher 2 game assets in creating mods for Skyrim.

    So big kudos to the guys and galls from CD project.

    That's it, with Daedric weapons plowing through escaped criminals for the Companions and the like is way too easy. I think as a challenge and to even it up I'm just going to fist fight them.

    I was bored and decided to do something rather amusing in my game to record with my Dazzle and post on my Youtube account. I want to get into a fist fight with one of the city NPCs but I thought it would be good to ask you guys what NPC I should get into a fistfight with. City Guards are the exception and also Heimskr because I can't go through the day unless I've heard his Talos rant at least once.

    There's two guys in Whiterun I would love to see get the absolute **** kicked out of them. Of them is some rich fellow, I believe he owns a farm or a meadery (but does no actual work) and every time you see him he'll say, in his most snooty of voices, "Have you ever been to the cloud district? Oh no, of course you haven't."

    The other guy actually seems like an okay chap except he constantly repeats the same friggin' question every time you pass him on the street. "Have you tried mercenary work? It might suit you!". He continues to say this even after you've joined the Companions in his oblivious state. Like I said, other than his repetition he seems like a decent fellow (unlike the first guy who just seems like a total wanker) but his constant questioning get really boring, really fast.

    Either of those two would be grand!

    Oh God yes, that would be Nazeem, the snooty Cloud District guy. Yes, I do so want to get in a fistfight with him. The other one in Whiterun would have been the guy that wears Imperial Armor, but Lydia killed him when I encountered him in the Battle Born house looking for evidence of that Grey Mane woman's son. He had the gall to tell his kid to kill me!! So yeah, he no longer wanders the streets of Whiterun with his arrogant self.

    The second guy I have to refuse because I helped him out and he blesses me with "Divine smile friend!"

    Another guy I am inclined to put in the poll is Sven, not because I dislike him but I have chatted up players that do. I personally wish he was a marriageable NPC because he doesn't need to be so shady trying to win Camilla's love when he has the attention of the Dragonborn which is ten times better. I'd love to have him guarding my home in Whiterun and playing songs for me on his lute. I'd make him forget about Camilla and the Elf. lol

    With enough input and feedback I might just make a formal poll just to get some definite idea who in Skyrim I should get into a fist fight with.

    I thought of an interesting backstory for a new character to play. I started typing it out this afternoon and it's sort of evolved into a full-blown fanfic now.

    So how would everyone feel if the made co-op for Skyrim, just 2-4 players max? I've been hearing alot of people talk about it and mostly it's split down the middle.

    Personally me and my friends would do what we normally do, murder everything that moves, murder each other and murder everything that moves while murdering each other.

    Even if it was just 2 players, we'd probably get into a William Tell shooting contest from as far as possible.

    I don't care one way or the other. I just don't think it's a needed feature.
