I tend to drop this game.for a few weeks at a time. It just gets old after a while, still have not done the main story. Lydia was the most useless whore in the game, I wish.she was alive so I could sacrifice her.

Skyrim was great. According to Steam, I played just over 400 hours.

Finally decided to get back to the main quest line and I am currently working the Alduins Bane section. Fecking game bug has me in fits. Must have reloaded a half dozen times to fight Alduin only to be handed my ass each time. Looked up the wiki this morning only to discover that theres a bug where if you attack Alduin before he finishes his dialogue it can cause the system to render him invincible (attacks do no damage).

Fvcking Skyrim! I was damned near ready to give up thinking my character just isn't strong enough to fight this dragon.

And, Blackreach SUCKS! Can't see a fvcking thing but floating dandruff and jellyfish!

There are "completequest" codes available online if you really can't get past a certain spot.

I had a problem with the Hjerim house in Windhelm. After I used a completequest code and a few more misc. codes to clean up all of the cobwebs and garbage in the house, I was set!

You have to have the PC version to do all this


For Blackreach, have your follower carry a torch. You can also use the candlelight spell in 3rd person view. Edit: You can also adjust the Gamma levels in the options menu or the brightness on your TV.

XBox 360 here. Now that I have read the bug wiki I should be okay. Looks like all i have to do is just not try to attack Alduin until he finishes his dialogue.

Yeah. I though about using magelight or something but my brain keeps telling me that will just create a beacon target, even though I know the game won;t trigger any baddies until you are right on them.

Blackreach is massive! I think Skyrim should be more concerned about becoming a giant sinkhole rather than a few pesky dragons.

Can't wait to play Dawnguard for PC. Really hoping for little to no glitches.

I am having fun floating around as a vampire lord. The only thing that sucks is that you can't loot anything and the vampire lord doesn't fit through some openings.

Since DawnGuard added 2 new perk trees and achievements, I wonder if XP increases any faster after Lvl 50 than if the character weren't doing DawnGuard quests.

Does that make any sense?

If achievements are the primary guage used for game completion, I can't imagine how long it will take to get the 22 Lycan and Vampire perks (11 each) to close out those achievements if leveling is as slow as it is now.

I am level 46 and it is still very slow going even with the Vampire Lord questlines. The Vampire perk tree is completely separate from the main perk tree. I don't know if one really affects the leveling speed of the other.
