Played Oblivion, I'll be looking at Skyrim but maybe in a year or so when it's not stupid-priced. Basically waiting for a Game of the year edition or something with expansions and all such stuff included. And I need to buy a new computer again if I want to play any of the new games anyway.

lol certainly the better option for me though as Warhammer over here (New Zealand) is rediculously expensive

A box of Bestigors = $81 New Zealand Dollars
In the UK its 25.50 pounds

and NZ no longer has access to Malestrom games etc.

So all in all Skyrim is a relativly cheap
:)

I would love to play Skyrim, but I haven't yet tired of playing Morrowind, and unfortunately I can't justify buying a new computer just to play Skyrim [and the latest Total War game].

When my computer does finally expire I expect I'll be right in there.

And if you add in the cost of hardware..?

It's a question of worth really. I mean who in their right mind pays 1700//$ or whatever it was for a copy Modern Warfare 3 a couple days before it's released. Stolen copies at that (someone stole a truck with the game in France). [Some facts may be at bit shaky, mainly the numbers]

It's a bit like saying FW is cheap in AUS & NZ because it costs the same as regular GW stuff. It really isn't, it just looks better in comparison.

Hopefully from early 2012 you can again buy from Wayland Games at a discount (though not as deep), and more importantly in pounds.


I still feel 60 for a new PC game is taking the P though. Especially with all the hassle they punish legal customers with. I should write my PhD about that instead!

I find that funny cause 3 days before COD MW3 was released some guy walked into my gaming club with half a dozen copies and flogged them off 10 bucks each. I think i remember the truck driving off with copies falling out the back.

Has anyone tried playing with a wood elf thief? I really want to try that, but I need to get a new computer first, and I would like someone to create even more hype for me :)

So I realize I'm a bit late for this discussion, but I got Skyrim for Christmas and have been hooked since.

I play a Nord warrior. Level 35 or 36 I think. Full Ebony Armour and weapons, with the Shield of Ysgramor.

I'm thinking of starting a new game to do a High Elf mage or a sneaky type Dark Elf.

Who else has been playing enjoying this game like crazy?

No sex for you! ;)


I'm enjoying it but my Painting progress has taken a hit, so I'm trying to have a small break :P
