I'm thankful though, cause Falion isn't giving any fucking quest options. Fuck Vampires.
    To open quest-related dialog with him, you have to be told that he is into vampires. Go to any inn in any city and talk to the person behind the counter. Ask them if they have heard any rumors lately and if you keep asking they will eventually mention him. Then you can go back and talk to him to begin the quest. Fuck vampires.

    FUCKIN' EH!! Thank you man. I keep having to go back and feed on that old bag, Agnis, in the middle of quests. At least she's just there for the taking.

    That he is "into vampires"? That feels a little creepy. I don't think I've run into a vampire yet.

    So if I told Lydia to stay somewhere and she gets tired of waiting and leaves, does that mean she's gone for good? Will I find her wandering around somewhere? I only ask because my homeless ass has been using her as a pack mule and she has a lot of my stuff.

    Yea, I have always been able to find her at the hall. However, keep in mind that if you have loaded her down with your stuff... I have noticed she cannot run, so I am pretty sure the no-fast-travel-when-overloaded rule applies to her. She's always way behind me. I need to buy that damn house or just dump all those dragon scales and junk.

    I started to just dump the scales and bones. Figure I'm gonna be killing more of them soon enough anyway. I got a bunch of BS potions I don't use either. I just seem to carry them around. Fun.

    I started to get into enchanting, and it's totally awesome. I'm going to start spending perks in that. I made some stuff that increases my bow damage, so now my archery should be even more devastating. I had been concerned recently about having weak equipment. I just use scale armor, forsworn antlers, and an elven bow that used to have lightning damage. I haven't really looked into smithing or crafting or any of that. But I had found a ring some time ago that increased my bow damage by 20%, so I destroyed it to learn the enchantment. My character will be so awesome when I've mastered enchanting.

    Yep. Enchanting is where it's at. I can't stress enough though how much more you can increase your armor rating and weapon damage with smithing. I have glass armor that is all upgraded to legendary. My armor regenerates my health 30% faster and, my gauntlets improve my bow 20%, my boots resist fire damage and my cowl adds another 35% to my bow damage. I have an enchanted ring and/or necklace for pretty much everything too (increasing lockpicking, pickpocketing, resisting frost, resisting shock, and most importantly a ring and necklace that increases my carrying capacity). I love this fucking game.

    One of the guys from the Legion was in Whiterun, where the jarl is. I had finished the Imperial Legion story line, and while I was putting stuff in my house, I decided to drop by the jarl's mage and borrow his enchanting altar. Where the tables of food are, this Legion guy - who was a prime character, not just a common soldier - drew his sword when he saw me, and started to follow me. He's now followed me out into Whiterun proper, always with the sword drawn, and I cannot open a dialogue with him. He didn't follow me into War Maiden's, but I suspect he's waiting for me outside. I don't know for what lengths he'll follow me, as I had stopped playing once I realized War Maiden's was not interested in all the jewelry I enchanted.

    One user asks Sawyer if the size of the save file is indeed the cause of these issues. Sawyer responded by saying that the size of save files could "be a big problem, especially if you're on the PS3. The longer you play a character, the more bit differences on objects (characters, pencils on tables, containers, etc.) get saved off and carried around in memory." His mention of "bit differences" is a reference to a bit field, which is a way data can be stored.

    Another user angrily asks Mr. Sawyer about why games are released in such poor condition, to which he answered that Skyrim's problems are "an engine-level issue with how the save game data is stored…" Many other users are angry at Bethesda Game Studios for Skyrim's subpar performance on PS3, however, but Sawyer defends Bethesda. "It's not like someone wrote a function and put a decimal point in the wrong place… We're talking about how the engine fundamentally saves off and references data at run time. Restructuring how that works would require a large time commitment."

    Yet another user asked Sawyer if these problems are exclusive to PlayStation 3, which he answered, "as with Fallout 3 and Skyrim, the problems are most pronounced on the PS3 because the PS3 has a divided memory pool." When pressed on what a "divided memory pool" means, Sawyer clarified: "The Xbox 360 has a unified memory pool: 512 megs of RAM usable as system memory or graphics memory. The PS3 has a divided memory pool: 256 megs for system, 256 for graphics. It's the same total amount of memory, but not as flexible for a developer to make use of."

    That shit can sneak up on you... you're trying to sell off all your excess loot and armor and still can't get your weight back under 200 and then realize... fuck... I've got 30 pounds of bone meal sitting here.

    I imagine the improvements on Xbox won't be that much significant
    Next Bethesda game I buy will definitely be for the PC
    It seems the development team is lazy about finding
    solutions to their resource allocation problems.
    You'd figure that after Fallout they would make it a priority
    But as with most large scale software development, performance always takes the back seat.

    Get it for PC if you're going to buy it again

    I haven't played a game on the PC since War Craft 2. This is a dumb question and I am too involved in reading about other planets right now to google, but does skyrim run on osx?

    I've noticed improvements from this latest patch regarding the memory thing. My save file isn't growing so much anymore, and it sometimes even shrinks a bit when I save. I rarely have the lag I used to have in menus. I've also seen less lag overall.

    I did experience a couple freezes, though. They weren't devastating, thankfully, and they came when a bunch of crap was happening - like a lot of NPCs were fighting, a quest was updating, and I tried opening a menu all at once. Also, this glitch with activating bookshelves, which is a minor glitch, but a frustrating one to come across as I try to decorate my Solitude home.

    I would love to get a gaming PC to play these games the way they're meant to be played... but I don't see that happening anytime soon. The PC I have now can hardly handle The Sims 3, and it's mostly for music recording. The next PC I get will probably also be used for recording.
