Yay! I played Skyrim on Steam and just loved it. Visually it is incredibly lovely and the movements were as well. When you rode a horse you really felt like you were riding.

Supposedly they've got a system that "Does away with first day launch crashes" and their like, but we'll see if it lives up to the hype or not.

Wait, doing away with launch crashes? That's not the elder scrolls experience I know of!
It has to crash every 15-30 minutes minimum, and sometimes bug out in the middle of a quest to make it unfinishable!

Oh, and be lo-res but raved over for some reason. And use a control scheme blatantly designed for consoles only and grudgingly given to pc gamers too without real change.

Really, the problem is they're using a game that has a lot of lore but never quite exhibited a lot of it in game. Lots of good books to read, not as much in the game. Oh, and lots of wonderful set-pieces connected with miles and miles of dungeons (be them caves or sewers or what have you).

Besides, as far as I'm concerned if it's not moddable, you have a vague third-person fighting rpg-like thing with some nice gameplay at times but way too much filler. Oh, and a lot of books of lore.

I love Skyrim and have sank a lot of hours into it since it came out. I'm not sure about this Online Elder Scrolls though. I'm not hugely interested in MMO's I like being able to game with a small handful of people not thousands.

Not to mention from what I've seen thus far it looks a little to much like WoW. Sure WoW is popular (although loosing players rapidly) but it's a tired mechanic.

Also, my avatar in Skyrim;

I stopped playing TES with Oblivion; Steam is a no-go for me. And up to this point TESO isn't looking too promising either.

Nice avie, Tweak.

Well, will see what they bring to the table and how it plays. I am more a solo, small group type of player myself but am willing to see where this goes. I am always up for a new adventure and this is just another one.

As far as crasholas solved that by launching the .exe outside of Steam client. Worked like a charm and no crashes. They have work to do as far as story I think and really, really hope it does not end up WoW-like. Got to give it a chance and see though, first.

I tried to sign up, but I timed out while composing my essay about why I should be chosen. Don't want to have to write that again, so I might let it go.

I've been really enjoying Skyrim as well. I never thought I would enjoy a fighting game, but I've even come to enjoy the rare animation of my own head being chopped off. Unfortunately, I have no picture or video of that. Here is my avatar. I usually wear heavy armor, but I'm trying to get my light armor up right now. That is not Lydia behind me: it's that house carl from Solitude, Jordis the Sword-Maiden.

I don't mind the bugs, or the controls. You can usually find a solution for most of them. And computer players often have ways to fix the bugs that console players do not.

I'm eagerly awaiting the Dragonborn DLC. Although I like online play, single player is my favorite.
