Skyrim Arrives

The Bethesda Blog marks today's release of The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim, the RPG sequel so highly anticipated that they need not even mention its name:

Today’s the big day! To help celebrate the occasion, IGN got artist Bashir Sultani to pay tribute to the game with salt art. Awesome stuff!

From everyone at Bethesda, we hope you enjoy the game as much as we did making it. Have a great weekend playing!

PC Gamer offers a guide on tweaks for the PC edition to improve graphics, disable Vsync, change FOV, and more and HARDOCP has a performance and IQ preview.

Plus, with the PC, you need to spend tons of money to make it run at full specs at playable fps. Now, I have already done that, but still, spending tons on my PC every year is getting old as hell.
People actually believe this still? My "new" PC cost $500 to build, and runs skyrim on ultra. Here have a few screenshots. Since I've already got a surround sound setup, kinda moot.

x4-965, 560, 8GB of ram. 1920x1080, 8AA, 16AF, FXAA on, ultra everything, tweaked. I'm hitting the vsync cap but can still hit 80fps in dungeons with lots of light sources.

Tones of money my ass. PC parts have never been cheaper than they are now, minus HDD costs because of flooding in thailand.
