So.. will Hearthfire come out for the PS3?

 

They have a tendency to release their DLC at a much later date for Pc / Ps3, if their older games are anything to judge by. Usually a few months down the road. i would be very surprised if it isn't out for Ps3 by early 2013. I'm waiting for it as well :P

I still can't believe that they are selling the addons for $20. Fallout GOTY edition costs just as much, and that's an entire game and its addons.

 

Although I admit I love the looks of the new creatures. Bethesda has been working.

Hearthfire for PC costs only $5 since release

 

But I agree, the price of Skyrim and its addons sounds like it's Bethy's current Cash Cow King

A really really big DLC might be worth that much. I feel obligated to point out that this would bring the total pricetag of the game up to $105 if you buy everything.

 

The way I see it, the only thing that would justify this kind of price tag would be massive world building. GTA IV already proved that you can add a ridiculous amount into an existing world for a lot less, which includes game mechanic additions.

105$ is what a new ps3 game costs in norway, without any packs :(

Yikes! Is it the same for computers, or just consoles (or that particular one).

Well, that is if you buy it new. Luckily games get cheaper quite fast. For example, this summer I bought Deus Ex: HR for around $30.

And for computers it is about $20 cheaper.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

With the exception of Skyrim...

 

It has been nearly a year since its release, and it STILL costs $59.99 on steam (barring special discounts, such as Summer sale)

what races are looked up to by citizens? and what ones are looked down on? what race is best for archery?

Nords are the only ones that are looked up to by most people in big cities (except minorities). Imperials are looked up to in Western Skyrim (which is Imperial-controlled). Argonians, Dark Elves and High Elves are looked down upon, especially in Windhelm. Best race for archery is Wood Elves, which start with a +10 bonus in archery.

are there any super active skyrim forums? What kind of bow is good at the start? What other skills should I incorporate with archery?

1: Don't know. Bethesda's own site? UESP?

 

2: You can start with a longbow and scavenge better bows as you go along, there's a pair of towers with a bridge over a river southeast of Whiterun that has a leveled bow, for example. If that's too slow, try smithing. Your main problem will be arrows unless you have Dawnguard or are on the PC, because then you can either smith them or get a mod that lets you. If that's not possible, there's a fletcher in Solitude.

 

3: Sneak is very good with archery, at higher levels you can more or less one hit everything that isn't boss-level. It's not exactly easy to get to that point, though. Light armor, another weapon skill for when they get within melee range, enchantment, and smithing? I might be giving bad advice here, I don't know for sure.

1. I don't use any Skyrim forums, so I can't answer this.

 

2. I made a wood elf archer assassin as my third character. The moment I got into Riverwood, I pickpocketed Delphine for her orcish bow. Just get ready to save a lot. After that, work on your smithing for better bows.

 

3. Work on your six thief skills if you want to be a stealthy archer. I also recommend working on illusion a bit so that you get access to invisibility and muffle for those moments when you are too lazy to sneak. Also, if you get a few perks in Enchanting, Alchemy, and Smithing and max those skills out, the daedric bows you can create are powerful enough to one shot dragons. I definitely recommended looking up how to make extremely OP bows, they're fun to play around with.

Noticed the steam sale today, but that's okay, beucase it's the only day that matters. Decided that since dawn guard no longer felt like highway robbery that I'd spring for it, and hearthfire too. Fairly pleased about that.

For some reason I can't comprehend, I touched the load order for my skyrim mods (almost all of which are graphical). I'm not sure what possessed me to do this, other than to slot in a patch for hearthfire where it should go, since they were working just splendid before. It's is also possible that hearthfire and dawnguard might have destabalized my game a bit, so maybe I'm not allowed to run 3 water mods (plus one that makes you drop when you get out of the water) anymore. I even got nexus, which is actually next useless for me. I thought there was like a grand list of ideal load orders and known conflicts, so I kind of expected it to sort the plugins for me. I've got them in the most logical order now from my perspective, and I'm going to go through some of them and eliminate the ones that are doing similar things because I really do have a ridiculous number of graphical mods running. I'm not giving up the aurora mod though.

IIRC, the BOSS utility is a great way to sort out your mods so that they aren't conflicting with each other. I haven't looked into it anytime recently though, but I'd imagine the project is still up to date.
