'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Skyrim

A few links for those enjoying The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's RPG sequel being played by over a quarter-million concurrent players on Steam. We have Skyrim Intro & Gameplay Running on Multiple Monitors, some Performance Benchmarks to see if your rig is up to the game (thanks Acleacius), and, just for fun: Watch A Horse Ride A Dragon In Skyrim (thanks Ant).

As a multi system gamer I've been able to adapt to the UI. I feel sorry for you guys, you seem all stuck on a fairly minor issue if you can get over the INSULT that you're control system of choice was not accounted for.

I find myself fumbling at the keys a lot less than with Morrowind or Oblivion. I'm not sure If I could go back to using a Sam and Max interface in my RPG again to be honest, with the whole hover over a picture of something to see what it is and it's properties. I'm able to sort through this one pretty fast. Lack of stats and properties being listed makes it lose some of that old school RPGness but that's a sacred cow worth slaughtering to make it feel more natural (I think Attack speed and reach are still there anyway as far as I can tell, it's just not spelt out for your barbarian brain).


That's just me though. I genuinely feel sorry for people getting upset, annoyed or being forced to stop playing this game due to the UI. If I was in the focus group though I'd have given it a big thumbs up, console baby that I am.

Last ATI card I ever buy though! Is it AMD or the developers? Do devs just all ignore AMD stuff or is AMD really just that useless? Runs nice but I shouldn't have to tweak out the mouse to get it bearable. It's been a recurring problem in a few games recently.

Also, I take back the props I gave Bethsoft for making a game that only crashes every 3 to 6 hours. It still sucks that it crashes at all! Fix please! Although it's probably my ATI card again...

Yeah, the UI makes the game unplayable in Eyefinity (not to mention the Radeon's get a lot of CTD's and crossfire isn't working so using the eyefin mode means lousy FPS).

So yeah, for some people the UI isn't a minor problem. If you're going to whinge about the occasional CTD, perhaps you'd care to let people effected by the UI put their complaints out there as well...
