Anyway lets put this all to rest, shall we. Oh yeah, this is straight from the horse's mouth.

So maybe you can stop giving me grief, yeah? I love the Elder Scrolls but lets call a spade a spade and be honest with ourselves about just what has happened to The Elder Scrolls series. It is another big name game gone console native with PC as an after thought. Period. Doesn't mean it won't be a good game. I'm still going to play it.
It would seem that I stand corrected!
I swore I remembered on one of the earlier, long interviews that the "port" as we understand it, was not going to be the case.
As always, when mistaken, I hold my hands up and say "oops! I was wrong".
Also, sorry for the griefing

Yes! I'm not him.

Nevertheless Skyrim is the game I'm most excited about by far, probably more than any other game ever. Just cause I've clocked something like 150 hours in TES: IV and bit over 100 in Morrowind and enjoyed every last bit of it.

For others interested as well, there's a lot of interesting info on TGN's Skyrim thingy on YouTube.

In the end, I'm sorry Nautilus for being annoying (IMO fanboyish), I just can't wait for the game. The weirdest thing is not to play it as much as too see it being the most epic game ever or most simply not disappointing fans like myself (too much).

I'm actually getting a new rig mostly cause I want to be prepared for Skyrim and more importantly mods for it.
Regards!

Med-Low - 8600GT
Low - 6800GT

Assume higher levels include AA, MSAA, AF, Higher texture res, Higher res

We have to consider the promise of higher resolution textures. I'd imagine they are twice the resolution of the XBOX360. And we have AA, Super-Sample AA, AF, and higher gaming resolutions. IIRC, XBOX360 maxes at 720P.
Therefore, I SPECULATE that medium settings will be equal to XBOX360. And the visual appeal is twice as good for the Ultra settings.


Once again, speculation, but I'm confident.
I hope it'll be more like Oblivion. That meaning no presets just bunch of options and sweet ini file/s for those willing enough to fiddle around.

And by your speculation I'll play it at med-high, which would be pretty sweet. But I hope something like that will be into play, cause I would be disappointing if I could play it on "max" (meaning no AA, AF and 1280x1024 which is max on each of my monitors) and 25-ish FPS.

P.S. I don't think that this "hostility" goes into favor of you getting Skyrim over Saints Row The Third.
So... In Skyrim you can yell at creatures. >.>. That didn't sound right... Shout in dragon language and do awesome stuff.
Alright, you convinced me... I'll get the new Saints Row instead. Already downloaded their character creation feature on Steam for free :3

Nice. I'll actually prolly get them both. They both seem amazing.

But I have to say that I'll probably enjoy being able to summon a dragon a watch my dragon fight another dragon while sit and rest. (can't help it XD)

The Ice Enemies and Become Ethereal shouts have Oscuro written all over them. So glad they hired him.

I still want to know if dragons of different types will fight each other (Not just that one ally of yours.)

No problem, I appreciate the response. I've been a big fan of TES and I am definitely going to be playing this game no matter what. The game may well be great, I just miss the good old days when a game like this would have been designed for the PC then ported to the consoles instead of the other way around.

Well I'm sure we'll have dragon riding mods in no time (like Akatosh Mount from Oblivion, where I always laughed at it cause I imagined I was riding the last Septim (ES fans will get the reference)), and it would be nice to have something like Dragon Stone from Divinity II: Ego Draconis, which was the only decent thing from that game.

But I'd like to see that as well @ BanzaiY

Fun Fact: Divinity II: Ego Draconis uses Gamebryo engine from Oblivion.

Those times are long gone, and not just for Bethesda's work. Actually even though I'm PC Gamer with all my heart, I have hard time finding decent big time AAA PC Games that have PC as I priority, aside from various MMO's and some TBS or RTS. Even id Software said (correct me if I'm mistaken) that Doom 4 if and when gets out will have PC tertiary in mind. First Xbox and PS3 then Nintendo's Wii or whatnot... Idk... some big game dev said that. Think it was someone from id software but I'm not completely sure.

Low polygon count, low on DX11 effects (if at all?). We saw their doing in RAGE. If it is an announcement what to expect from Skyrim we are screwed, especially when we see what can be done on PC in Battlefield 3, the most realistically beautiful game till now...
