Skyrim is the Fastest-Selling Game in Steam History

 

Outsold other PC games 3 to 1 in November.

 

Skyrim is the fastest selling title in Steam's history," said Jason Holtman, Director of Business Development at Valve. "Bethesda's commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received. We are delighted that Bethesda chose to use Steamworks to support Skyrim both at retail and digitally."

200 reviewers say Skyrim is the perfect game

 

According to Bethesda's findings there have been some 200 perfect review scores which we'll assume equals 10/10s, 5/5s and five star ratings. 200 impressed critics is a lot, although if we head on over to Metacritic.com a slightly different picture is formed.

 

Xbox 360 - 86 critics - 31 gave 10/10 that's 36% of critics

 

PS3 - 13 critics - 1 gave a 10/10 that's 7.6% of critics

 

PC - 27 critics - 7 gave a 10/10 that's 25.9% of critics

 

The figures are extremely good generally, as Skyrim sits with a review average of around 95/100

‘Skyrim’ 1.3 patch breaking auto-saves, causing various problems

 

Only hours after the much-needed 1.3 patch for Skyrim has been released for Xbox 360 (and PS3 in Europe), users are beginning to report a variety of new bugs and unfixed issues. Some of the complaints include infinitely hanging loading screens, dragons that don’t give souls when defeated, Lydia falling through floors, and broken auto-saves. And, based on feedback in both comments and forums, players with a penchant for archery may be losing a considerable amount of skill points.

 

We decided to test the 1.3 patch on our own Xbox 360 copy, and found that when loading auto-saves (pressing continue or manually loading the auto-saves from the load screen), the load screen would freeze indefinitely. This occurred with all 3 of our auto-save files. Regular, manual saves could still be loaded properly.

 

Different issues seem to be affecting different people, so we wanted to run down a quick bullet point list of what we’ve seen reported so far. Note that we can only personally vouch for the auto-save issue, but that’s no small problem. You may want to, yet again, avoid updating Skyrim to patch 1.3 until some of these problems get shaken out.

 

* Invisible dragons

* Broken or non-loading auto-saves

* Textures are improved on HDD installs for some, but not for others

* Some cases of dragons still flying backwards

* Dragons not giving souls when defeated (existing issue not fixed)

* Lydia falling through various floors

* Markath bug still not fixed

* Archery skill level dropped dramatically

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE: Upon more investigation here at VGW HQ, it appears that auto-saves created prior to installing the game to HDD are broken, while auto-saves created after installation work fine. To be safe, you may want to disable autosaves by booting up any Skyrim save, then press Start, and tab over to System Settings -> Gameplay, then disable Save on Rest, Save on Wait, Save on Travel, and Save on Character Menu.

 

Early reports from European gamers seem to indicate that the deadly PS3 lag is fixed for some, and not for others.

 

This is bound to be disheartening to even the most devout of Bethesda fans, and we can only imagine that testing these patches internally is nothing short of a nightmare for Skyrim’s developers, given the nearly infinite amount of variables with any given game save, character, or quest line.

Skyrim is not for consoles :P

skyrim should have had enemy targeting system, just like shadow of rome(ps2) & combat would have been so satisfying!!!

 

targeting system would make the combat basically hack and slash with the occasional parry..this feels more natural and you have to think tactically about when to be on the offensive and defensive also the targeting would make encounters with multiple enemies difficult as your AOS will shrink and you wont have camera control.

But when u pay bounty to guards they check n take away ur stolen items also... How to pay bounty without loosing stolen items??

I don't think you can. But the guards take only the things stolen from that hold. Items stolen from any other hold will remain with you. Safely store your stolen items, that is the best way to avoid losing them.

There's a perk in the Speech tree that lets you bribe the guards.
