I love in the end credits he knows that there will be nude mods and child murder mods. The second one having been already made. The mod community can be nice, but also stupidly predictable at times.

Actually there are alraedy about 10+ nude mods that I've seen so far.. So, yeah.. Now you know.

I enjoyed the review. Great fun as always.

Spot1990:
I went with the Imperial, mostly because in the bedlam of a dragon attack I saw some dude and followed him. Joined the Legion later because I actually preferred them.

Good. I'm glad I'm not the only person who heard a guy go "Here, follow me" and said "Thank god, someone sane" Imperial or not, that dude helped me out.

Well I'll be damned he actually gave it a fairly positive review.

I totally feel him on that "Find the exploit" bit.
I spent forever finding a rock to stand on in order to arrow that one frost troll to death.
And don't even get me started on deathlords.

Doom-Slayer:
Actually watched it. And im still confused whether he liked it or not. Strangely being the magically space god I am, I havent had a single glitch or bug in the game just like Fallout3 and New vegas before the uber patchs, so I find it strange when people comment on that.

But..he was gentle to it and said he was immersed so Im not sure whether he was just forgiving the gltiches and tolerating it or genuinely liking it.

Maybe you're just not very good at spotting glitches then, because they pop up like targets at a shooting range? :o)

Still a good game though.

what do you think of sopa?

Breno:
hated the start because you runined in i was ceeping it a surprise for myswlf :(
however thought the end of the video was funny :)

Does anyone know what the fuck this man just said?

"I'll never forget about you hovering ground lady" -Yahtzee

So YOU'RE the one that sent in that video to Game Fails.

One of the funniest things I've ever seen in a vidja game.

Just like in the game, he ended-up shouting nonsense.

Jennacide:

Not so much predictable as dependable IMHO

Zachary Amaranth:
And once again, Yahtzee ignores the multiplayer content. Why didn't you comment on it, Yahtzee? Why?

(please don't kill me)

No perhaps not, I've thought of a better use for you

>MFW he quoted a post that hadn't been made yet.

Jennacide:

Both actually. Sure, the nudity mods were badly done, but they were out on release day.

I wonder if the "no, no, no, no, no!" was about reviewing Assassin's Creed 2.9 before Serious Sam 3 along with a refusal to do another gimmicky set of reviews. After all, Serious Sam 3 came out about a week ago, so it's within Yatzee's schedule to play it this week before the review two weeks from now.

Also, I'm surprised Yatzee didn't go "mage" again, like he did in WoW. When I eventually get Skyrim (I guess I'll wait for next summer), I'll make the wolves chew OTHER PEOPLE'S "stirrups" off with resurrection (or restoration, or whatever the zombie-generating spell is called).

This was actually one of the reviews that just made me LOL more than usual, he was really on his A game for it. I honestly love skyrim, but i gotta say the biggest flaw it had was character creation, which was almost a carbon copy of mass effect 2.

I am disappoint - thought he would rip it a new one sigh. Oh well, still not buying it.

That was...disappointing...was expecting more murder...but I guess after playing COD even Pokemon ruby sapphire gold crystal dung looks great.

jessegeek:
Huh, if it's that good I might actually buy it in the sales now... honestly wasn't expecting that, but if the dead-eye stare has gone and the combat is willing to meet me halfway on the intuitive level then we have a deal.

You mean despite all the news, critical acclaim and perfect review scores you're only going to considering buying it because Yahtzee liked it?

Both have already been made (unfortunately)

Danny91:
My Shadowmere has killed so many things for me, up to and including two dragons. I love him.

Shadowmere's a she; Astrid doesn't know what she's talking about.

This game scares me away because it just seems so dense, and I've got the nasty habit of playing the games before if I didn't. Wish I had time for something like this but Zelda seems more important now.

Sometimes those crazy glitches are part of the charm though. I saw them a lot in Fallout 3. I'd enter a building or fast travel somewhere and a random corpse would drop out of the sky for no reaason. There was also a time in Rivet City where I saw a guy running around in a panic for no reason. Then he ran off the edge of a platform and plummeted to his death, which was oddly hilarious.

THEoriginalBRIEN:
That's a shame. I was really hoping Bethesda would fix their trading system in game. I remember in Fallout 3 I had all of the caps in the whole world, and all the best stuff, and everyone else was poor as shit. I wound up just travelling the land, throwing caps at the peasants and "merchants" that crossed my path. It's no fun being the 1%.

Next thing you know you have a bunch of people in tents outside your house as part of the "Occupy Megaton" movement.

Haha I carry around all these potions as well in case I might need them (read: never).

Not in the sense that if Yahtzee says jump I jump, but because I was on the fence about it and a lot of the reviews I read either didn't mention those specific aspects of Oblivion that hacked me off or were kind of vague about it so it was hard to tell whether any improvements had been made. But Yahtzee hated those aspects of Oblivion too, to the fact that he commented that they had been improved and that his review was generally positive is high praise indeed. I'm crazy picky about games I like, and most reviewers aren't as annoyingly specific as me, whereas Yahtzee seems to look for similar stuff in a game and is super-critical so for stuff like this I find his reviews to be a good yardstick as well as hilarious.

Da Orky Man:
I think he actually liked it.

Yeah, I was confused myself at first. Personally I was hoping he'd trash it so this would be one of the new releases that I could put on the back burner, but between this, the graphical improvements and that hour I played this game at my mate's, I think Skyrim might be the first Elder Scrolls game I can actually get into.
Oh and by the way, I picked the Imperial route at the start, but for very solid reasons. Because if during a dragon disaster I'm made to choose between a bunch of prisoners dressed scantily in fur and a bunch of Roman legionaries in full armour, I know who I'm sticking with.

"I'll never forget about you hovering ground lady" -Yahtzee

So YOU'RE the one that sent in that video to Game Fails.

One of the funniest things I've ever seen in a vidja game.

Tee hee, I remember that. I wonder if Yahtzee is actually an avid watcher of Gamefails.

Man this review was spot on. Especially about the potions, the shopkeepers never having enough gold, that one impossibly hard enemy at the end of a dungeon, and your trusty bloodthirsty horse. The only other thing to mention is how frequent the dragon attacks are. It drives me nuts having to fight one every 15 minutes.

Double post, sorry about that.

Zachary Amaranth:
And once again, Yahtzee ignores the multiplayer content. Why didn't you comment on it, Yahtzee? Why?

(please don't kill me)

Probably just to spite those who love interaction with human beings who are not within slapping range.

Hehehe, that's the only way to play a fighting game.
The moment they start spamming is the moment you start smacking

:P

Something tells me Yahtzee only liked this game because it's not another shooter he has to review.

Spot1990:
I went with the Imperial, mostly because in the bedlam of a dragon attack I saw some dude and followed him. Joined the Legion later because I actually preferred them.

It actually took me three characters to realize I had a choice in who to follow.

I don't normally bother commenting on these, especially since the threads tend to be too crowded already by the time I can get in, but I had to today because this is the funniest ZP in a long time. Yahtzee was on this week. Now we know what he's capable of when he gets put through weeks of bland-shooter hell and emerges into a game that doesn't piss him off. I even laughed when he was talking about the floating ground lady, and I'm not quite sure why. It seems like it ought to be nowhere near as funny as the bugs he described in Mercenaries 3 (one of my other favorite ZP moments), but for some reason it was the funniest part of the video. (The runner up was the "world's worst Jehova's Witness" line. Laughed out loud at that one too.)

I found out later that even though I had went with the Stormcloaks to escape, that it was entirely possible to still join the Imperial Legion, since you can be told to do so after you revisit Fort Greymoor under Imperial occupation after you "cleanse" it of bandits. So, technically, the beginning of the game doesn't necessarily determine which side you choose later on, but it does affect your initial game experience.

You're welcome

You pre-emptively "you're welcomed" me, so I guess this is a temporally-mismatched "thank you".

My favourite glitch so far has been throwing a firebolt at a Whiterun guard outside the city, and watching him accelerate on his back like a sled over the horizon...I followed the line, and eventually found him propped against a log about a 4 in-game-hour walk away, twitching and spazzing out.

Thats right bitch, aint gonna mess with Dovakiin again ;)

Sorry for double post, this site is utterly lagging with everyone wanting to see your video.. I must post again restating what I said.
