I tried the game this morning for like 20 minutes. It looks alright!

First issue was with the menu, at first the one of character creation. What seems to be the case is that the menus are unresponsive to mouse clicks. But then not always! I know, weird right? It got me stuck in character creation. A grumpy morning grunt or 2 got it to work again but it felt overly weird. After that, I couldn't get the inventory to respond to clicks at all! I had to navigate through the uncomfortable maze by WSAD and E which worked as [Enter] which was fine.

The intro is pretty nice and dragons look... man... fucking pissed off! Exactly the way we guys want them to look -- very D&D'ish!

After a short while I jumped on my bike in a hurry to get to work. Then the craziest thing happened for real! I heard this deafening roar which I was certain echoed through the whole neighborhood! First reflex? I looked to the sky and expected a dragon to soar over the rooftops. It was my morning delusions at work, of course. When I turned the street I saw a big truck laying on its side, and I realized the roar was the cargohold scraping the street as it fell over and slowly lost momentum, pretty much like in those crazy action movies less over-the-top because the truck couldn't possibly have driven too hard. You can prolly see it on some Dutch news later this morning because it caused a rockus or whatever you call it.

Anyway.. I looked for the sky. Retard.. >.>

Skyrim's first 20 mins were good, btw!
