    Soo... I guess I should buy skyrim at some point? Probably before Mass Effect 3, Otherwise how the hell am I going to find the time to play both?

    noob friendly mod kit just means thousands of ridiculous mods.
     
  6. ikesmasher, the Skyrim Nexus has a rating system, people rate the better mods, all you'd have to do is look for the mods that have the most endorsements and you wouldn't ever see the ridiculous mods.

    Hopefully they're not using this steam partnership to segway in charging $$ for the better mods. I've always gone to skyrim/fallout nexus for mods. They have an excellent site and an excellent community of modders.
     
  8. patch appears to have foobarred my copy, can't interact meaningfully with NPCs now.

    lol, so true. +1

    Ya, but you'll still have to swim through a sea of useless crap to find anything new that might be potentially good. Just sayin' :p

    Regardless, its a really cool concept, and I'm really happy they did this for the community. Its just too bad that pc users got a mediocre console port of the game :-/
    It almost seems like they are relying on modders to fix things, such as interface issues, instead of themselves... hmmm.... or, maybe I'm just being overly cynical today :)

    that is true.
     
  11. "Both features are currently in the works although a release date hasn’t been announced as of yet"

    Shame on you Techspot that isn't correct (hint: so please correct it) or at best is misleading, certainly with regard to the Creation Kit. Two previous release dates were promised by Bethesda for the Creation Kit, the first was with release of the game, and the second was 'sometime in January.' Both of course have been missed. Bethesda have now sensibly reverted to the suitably vague 'coming soon.' Bethesda used to make release date promises...

    Bethesda also used to release broken-*** games.

    Hey, Skrim wasn't broken for me. Sure, some glitches...but they weren't fatal and didn't hinder (much) 200+ hours of magnificent gameplay. At least it's not like Batman: Arkam...started up one day to find all save games gone and unrecoverable (I tried multiple workarounds). To top it off WB had a rude and ignorant support staff. I'd much rather have Bethesda's benign glitches to WB's fatal errors.

    Then stop using those stupid mods all the time...seriously. No problems here.
