    Oh that is so effing coooool!

    My future kids will probably take such a way to play a game for granted, but enjoying the progression of this technology will be fun.
  3. I wonder if my future kids will be able to play Skyrim bug-free? I don't count on it in my lifetime.

    Amen to that! I have 2 characters with over 30+ hours. Both saves are glitched one with the final quest for companions and the other has an issues with a thieves guild quest...

    Maybe I'm just getting old but the the motion detection in a game like this this just seems lame.
  8. Umm, no...are you kidding me? I wouldn't want to be telling my character exactly what to do. Nor would I want to hear somebody else to stop yelling at the computer.

    "POINTLESS"
    "GIMMICK"
    "SILLY"
    "EASIER WITH TRADITIONAL CONTROLS"

    Oh, don't have to say those commands, does it already.

    As the saying goes, just because you can't doesn't mean you should.
  13. Its a 32-bit game, its never going to use more than 4GB. You can thank the popularity of console gaming for that.

    id never make a single player none console port there are far to many pirates on computer
  15. I've heard the PS3 has some bugs/issues so severe they may not be completely fixable. I'm playing the PC version and have had a couple issues, but thankfully no game breakers. Currently have 40 hrs in and the last quest I completed was staff of magnus.

    But if the game is 4GB aware that wouldn't make a difference?
  17. I didn't have any update but after this I had an important improvent in performance.
  18. I would rather have a proper head tracking support like Track Ir.
  19. Just so everyone knows the Kinect mod that does this DOES NOT WORK ON THE NEWEST SKYRIM 1.3.1 update!!

    Don't let the title fool you!
  20. As for the 4gb aware comment I have some clarification for you.

    Normally a 32 bit game can only see 4 gb, that is including however much ram windows is taking. So say its taking 1gb to run windows, then the game now only have 3gbs to choose from. (and sometimes windows requests it reserves some more like 1.5 or so, which would only leave you with 2.5gb)

    Anyway with this update say you have 6gbs of mem this will allow the game to take its full 4gbs and then use less for windows plus using the rest of the memory for that.
