pretty excited for it. I'm going to pick it up at a later date though. I would suggest using a guide if its your first time playing the series because its quite tricky. On oblivion I had trouble, I restarted my character and then i saw just fine. I would suggest you play oblivion before skyrim to get a feel for the game. I think its only like 10 dollars used.

I'm young so that means, I am limited to how many games I buy, unlike adults. So, I will probably not be getting Oblivion. My parents can be cheap at times, so I might just only get MW3, I'm not sure.

Agreed. I'm excited for Skyrim don't get me wrong, but it'll be interesting to see how thing mesh up in the direction they will take the Fallout series in terms of development style and all that noise..

I'll be playing it tomorrow morning so I'll make sure to drop by and rub it in for everyone waiting for Friday

Have you guys seen the size of the freakin' strategy guide? Check this baby out:

http://cdnstatic.bethsoft.com/bethbl...o-764x1024.jpg

And some stats from Bethesda themselves:

656 pages. Around 550,000 words. Over 150 maps and well over 1,000 screenshots.

Skyrim features 240+ perks over 18 skills.

"A great swathe of this guide (just under 300 pages) is dedicated to helping you through every single quest that’s available. Due to the radiant quest structure and general derangement of the game’s developers, this numbers into the hundreds (there’s at least 500 variations of quest to try, and around seven times the number of quest-based activities compared to Fallout 3). Keeping track of these, finding them all, taking screenshots, adding little spoiler flags to quests with particularly spectacular revelations… well, this took around three and a half months alone."

"The guide continues with more than 200 pages dedicated to every single location of important in the province; the Atlas. Adapting the Fallout formula, my co-author spent four months wandering through every one of the 350+ primary locations, and sourcing every collectible, trader, unique weapon, and area of interest. To put the sheer size of Skyrim into perspective; Fallout 3 had 115 Primary Locations. Plus, this guide has 200+ Secondary Locations, not shown on any in-game map, for you to stumble across (or head straight towards, if you’re following our precise guide maps and location entries).

In order to get this Atlas right, we pieced together every single part of the overworld from around 20 feet in height, and our map makers spent four entire months building a world map so truly mind-boggling, it may snap the minds of some viewers."

I am old, have it on preorder, but probably won't find the time to play it. Life's not fair.

Will depend on how good it turns out. First screenshots made me go hooray how much more lifely the characters look. Later screenshots kinda lowered my expextations a little.
