News Comments > Enhanced Skyrim UI

Default UI isn't that bad when you get used to it, when you do, you handle it FAST. The key is using only keyboard and ignoring the mouse.

Yeah, agreed. Most complaints I see are form people who can't stop using the mouse.

The only reason I would get this is the greater sorting options, but it's not worth the hassle for that alone at the moment. Maybe when I play Skyrim again in a couple years and the mod is complete.

We suggest you use the mod manager because extracting a rar to the data folder is SO fucking complicated!

Not sure if I'd go that far. Granted, the writing and role-playing are improved from Oblivion but that's not saying much. I still don't really care about any of the characters, the companions are all generic and most quests don't really have any interesting story. You also can't talk your way through the game. New Vegas is still the better RPG.

Well I said improved, as in better than their recent efforts. New Vegas is a different developer entirely, and I do agree it's a much better roleplaying game.

Good for them IMO. Great game. Simplified from older TES games a bit, but in ways that make sense rather than in ways that make it feel dumbed down. Also, the roleplaying was expanded and the writing vastly improved.

Good show all around. Can't wait for expansions.

Actually, I was asking why SV couldn't play this until 2013, since the game is going to be released in 2012.

I'm going overseas for a year to teach English and only taking a laptop. I plan to play through all the old infinity engine games again and some other classics.

Looking forward to this a LOT. Can't play it until 2013 though, which stinks.

There's actually a couple of half decent RPG's that have come out in the last few years but I can't think of one solid shooter. I'm just crying the blues.

I've been playing shooters since Doom and there are quite a few I enjoyed a lot recently. Crysis 2, Bulletstorm, Darkest of Days and Singularity are the ones that jump to mind right away (though Singularity is pretty "modern").

Does this version of Super Meat Boy require Steam?

No version does, even the Steam version can be played without Steam and is DRM free.

Did anyone even finish this game?

Now, this could be your regularly scheduled snarky troll comment, as you're used to seeing in comment threads. But I'm actually serious: Everyone I know who tried it stopped at about a third in. Even the most tenacious couldn't get any further.

I finished it and enjoyed it. Pretty much agree completely with Dan Stapleton's 80% review in PC Gamer.

Gonna get this, but I'll wait to see if it pops up in a Steam Xmas sale first.

Been ignoring these bundles for a while as I have way too many indie games in the "never really gonna play" pile, but this one was too good to pass up. Some real winners in there.

I did all that with my main, except for the Stormcloak line of course. With a bit of discipline I might've done the same thing as you but the Stormcloaks weren't worth it. I'd rather just run around as a demi-god doing absplutely everything except for that questline. In this way you'd get enough points to invest in perks that are worth it. Yesterday I invested an hour in lvling my lvl 40 main to Smithing 90 from 35. Didn't feel like rerolling a char. I needed that daedric set!

I don't feel like I'm missing out on that Stormcloak questline. I'm not playing for the short and miserable main-quest anyway.

You certainly CAN do that, I didn't mean to imply otherwise. My point was that since the perk system encourages specialized characters it makes more sense to divide up the questlines between multiple characters. My Argonian took no magic perks so he could be ultimate stealth dude, so why would he join the mage's college? I mean, he COULD, but it's easy to roleplay that he would not.

If you don't want to do that kind of thing then don't, I'm just saying Skyrim supports that line of play MUCH more than Oblivion did.

I'm a thief, archer, paladin.. all in one! That's TES. No reason to role-play, imo, because the replayability sucks.

I do everything, accept everything. I'm a nicest and evilest possible character. I murder, I steal, I heal, I give. Anything not to miss out on any content. Ten years ago I would've gone for either thief/assassin or knight/paladin, until I realized it's a waste of time.

In Morrowind and certainly Oblivion I would agree with you, but the perks system and certain faction choices add a lot of roleplaying ability to Skyrim.

I have a "main" who did the Imperial side and everything but the Dark Brotherhood and I have an archer side character doing the Dark Brotherhood, Thieves Guild and Stormcloaks stuff.

I successfully bought Lands of Lore. Can't wait to mess around with it. I am a GOG addict, so almost anything else I would want I already bought.

Jerykk wrote on Dec 11, 2011, 22:32:
Commandos wasn't really a strategy game. It was more of a squad-based stealth game. It was all about distracting enemies and taking them out by one. Not that that's a bad thing. I loved Commandos 2 and I even enjoyed the Desperados games. But I wouldn't put them in the same genre as C&C or DoW2.

Well DoW2 was kind of an in-between, which I liked. It was an RTS but it had elements of Commandos and even a Dragon Age style game. I liked that mix-up, and it got me to play an RTS which normally I would not do.

I did like C&C when I was younger though, and have a fondness for the series. So if they made it more like DoW2 that would be awesome for me personally.

As for the comments, I do agree that it sounds like gameplay tweaks or fixes - stuff that really should be for patches. That's probably not what they meant but I think they have to tread very carefully. Saying that, I'm really interested to see what they do. I just hop

Expansions have often added new gameplay features as well as content. Tribunal added a good journal to Morrowind for example, that was never in a patch. Patches are for bug fixes and stability improvements, mostly.

Yeah because what everyone really wants in an RTS is for it not to be really anything like an RTS!!

I say what I like, your opinion can differ all you want. I'm not a big fan of traditional RTS games, but I like squad games like Commandos and Dawn of War 2.

If this has a good singleplayer campaign I will buy it. I have heard rumors the singleplayer will be more like Dawn of War 2, which for me personally would be awesome.
