Impossible to tell without seeing at 1080p and in play. They couldn't have hot swapped FXAA on either so they have done well matching it shot for shot. Eitherway, a good enough excuse to upgrade my GPU.

Exactly what I think.

Whilst it might be fast, it's low quality.

I've only been able to play for about 8 hours total. I haven't seen a dragon yet (except in that first cut-scene). Is this normal?

Unless you did the first few quests in whiterun yes it is normal. You have to trigger the dragon spawns with the beginning quests

I did some of them, but must not have done all of them. Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm supposed to do a quest or if it's just a side-quest. The most recent thing I've done is just finished the Winterhold quest at the excavation site. That was pretty good I thought.

I said i took off half my gear once i realized how easy it made the game. But now at level 44, using the same gear which is definitely level appropriate now, the game still seems easy. I still kill dragon in one dual-wield power attack.

I also didn't use guides or any online resources. I just leveled my smithing right after i did that smithing quest once you get out of the tutorial cave. None of the vendors had ebony at that level, so i went looking for some mines. Just followed the base of the big mountains and checked a couple mines. I guess i got lucky finding the ebony mine early though. I didn't use the alchemy/enchanting loop, though i did make a set of smithing gear, but it only boosted my smithing by like 45% or so, not the 150%+ you can get with a higher enchanting skill.

Even with terrible gear on Master, the game isn't hard. It's just artificially difficult. Things kill you in one hit and it takes you a decade to kill them. You literally have NO options to win in a scenario like that (except glitching their ai so they never hit you, which is technically "cheating"). The only way i consider a game truly hard is when it pushes my skills as a player to the limits and the only reason i fail to win is because i'm not skilled enough or haven't mastered the mechanics of the game yet. In Skyrim, there's nothing like that on Masters (even with bad gear). I guess you could say you could kite something with a bow or magic for 20 minutes, but that's not particularly skillbased either and certainly not fun.

Also, this game isn't like oblivion where everything is scaled to your current level. Some areas and fights are SIGNIFICANTLY higher level and that's probably why some of you think Masters is harder than it is. If it's taking you 100 pots and 30 minutes to kill something, then it's probably scaled to a higher level. Also, if you level up on things like sneak, speech, restoration, and other non-combat skills, even if you don't put the perks into those, then the monster are going to outpace you rather quickly on masters because of the scaling system. Making things seems way more difficult than they truly are.

Edit: One last thing that i just remembered after responding to someone else below, i don't think you're supposed to shoot arrows and magic at the dragons for an eternity to kill them (at least on Masters). Once you get the shout to pull them down, you can kill them fairly easily. The only reason the very first dragon is so easy to kill without this shout is because you have like 10 scripted guards shooting at it.

The dragon won't spawn until you finish up the first main-quest. The one where you need to go talk to the jarl, find an item for his house-mage, and then you go kill the dragon. Once you do that, then the dragons will begin to spawn. You probably won't be able to kill the dragon yet though until you finish more of the main-quest to get the shout to pull them out of the sky so you can melee them. Until then, it takes decades to kill the dragons tongue.gif

If you're in a wide enough area, they land on their own accord.

Unfortunately, you are mostly correct. The AI is absolutely atrocious, but luckily other things in the game allowed me to enjoy it for the whole package. The first time I realized that the enemy AI was retarded and battles were going to be cheesy was the drauger king that comes out of the casket in the first quest at Barrow Falls. I ran to the other side of the ravine and he couldn't figure out how to get me when I moved from one side of the creek to the other. Oh boy....
