Did any of you watch the game play demo from E3? That was on an Xbox, and it looked beautiful.

The PC was, is, and will always be better than the consoles that are derived from it. For Todd to manufacture the opposite of what is standard and what he is supposed to do just brings a tear to my eye. The capacity for PCs, at this moment, vastly exceeds what the PS3 is capable of, yet they insist on still developing games made in the console's image. They could always make PC-exclusive games that are more intensive than consoles, but that wouldn't be in the best interest of business would it? But alas, Skyrim is the main topic. Skyrim has been a game I have been wholly looking forward to ever since it was leaked after New Vegas was released. I am also hoping I can experience it on the PC, since I heard of the unfortunate claim that Todd will be using Steam for production, but if necessary, I will have to buy it for the PS3 or summat.

What's particularly wrong with Steam? Regardless Oblivion was a 360 game ported to the PC as well and it still was better then the 360 version in the long run simply because of the modding community, and the fact that there typically are ways to get around glitches much more easily in the PC version as well as more free reign on what you can do(especially if you know how to work the modding tools yourself which tend to be surprisingly easy to use). My point being that it shouldn't matter if it's a port or not, if you have a good enough computer you should get it for PC.

I want to say that I do, as I have had major complications with it in the past, but after having chats with people who use it and claiming there is a "play in offline mode" button in the updated versions, I may not have any issues with it anymore. It's the reason why I left it at that instead of giving a wall-of-text rant criticizing it like I always do. It used to be me having to update the game, advertisements galore, for an estimated hour before I would have any chance to play my game, where it would give me two weeks to play it before reverting back into "update mode".

And I know I'm not supposed to care about graphics, textures, and whatnot since I have a personal code to follow, but any game ported to the PC can have so much more potential than its console cousins. They can even include such by adding higher quality settings in the options menu, high being the standard-issue textures, ultra-high being exclusive to the PC. The issue with Oblivion's 360 and PC is simply because of gameplay. The mods made it better. It was the same for Morrowind and Fallout3 as well. Take that away, as it is not official, then what do you have? The difference between the two ported games is playing style and favoritism.

Same, but I would still choose steam over windows games aka "live" any day.

I only hope there will not be really high difference of classes like in Oblivion where the Mage is overpowered and archer sucks -.-"

MAGE= 500 magicka = OMFG infinite heals yo mudda *****ka.
Low health, but heals and spells compensation. (Like skills to increase health - defense) also the magic armor spell
Really high damage for the difference of spells like Shock-Frost-Fire

ARCHER = I'm level 20 with 100 magicka.. (using powerful magic skills is a dream)
Low-Mid health (depends on the attributes you choose while leveling)
Low damage and even difficult to hit the enemy, arrows can finish.
Armor can be destroyed and you need to repair all the times (really boring)

WARRIOR = Low magicka (like archer)
High health
Mid damage
Armor can be destroyed and you need to repair all the times (really boring)

THAT WAS  ONLY THE PRIMARY CLASSES AND WHAT I THINK..  Because i dont think that an archer go for constitution primarly because to increase constituin you have to skill, Block (not for archers), Heavy armor (not for archers) and and Armorer (yes for archers but not really much important)

Yes maybe archers have more speed but in restricted locations like caves and dungeon they obviously cant escape from melee enemies, and versus ranged and casters are doomed.

It's an RPG, but not an MMO. I don't know if it is even possible to play with a keyboard and mouse on the console version(though it were possible it would have to be done on the PS3 since it is the only one that is compatible with those controls for anything anyways). If you get this for a console then you should probably be playing it with a controller.

I have to agree that archery was weak in Oblivion, but they are apparently doing away with the class system and instead allowing you to just combine classes as you want. Mages look like they are going to be even more overpowered then before though, or at least magic abilities, especially if you factor in the dragon abilities(if they count as magic that is). Regardless you should be able to combine classes though a bit more this time, making any sort of combo class you want, whether that be a battle mage(uses spells and swords interchangeably) a magic rogue(mainly uses stealth and ranged attacks and uses magic to help aid their stealth abilities I.E. invisibility as well as using it to set up traps) and a whole bunch of other possibilities

Armor can be destroyed and you need to repair all the times (really boring)

Good news is that smithing apparently is not just going to be a skill but something you can turn into a job in game for profit(somewhat like in Fable, except with benefits to your skills)

G4 got an exclusive preview at some of the private demo that was being shown off at E3 if any of you want to check it out. It has some good stuff in it:
