    So I'm prepping myself for the 15 extra pounds that i'm going to gain from playing this game for a month straight... Oh well. Worth it? Hell yes. Bethesda won't disappoint.

    I understand why people play this in third person, because they take a long time creating the look of their character and then they want to see him/her in action. I also take long to create my character, but I want to still be fully immersed into the game. First person view helps me feel more immersed and in my fake better world.

    Yes Todd. Der. People want to play there RPG's in 3rd person! Otherwise your playing the roll of... Mr HAND! We all see enough hands to know what hands looking like when they do stuff! *Rant* *Rant* Point is, research is a beautiful thing. Stop improving FP view if 50% of your community doesn't use it for anything other than an aim assist.

    Can not wait for this game! First time I don't feel like I dropped the soap, paying $110 for the basic game + probably $60 worth of DLC.

    Does anyone know if there are level restrictions to what monsters you can fight like in Oblivion?

    Hurray for Rockjoint, dang wolves
    its stupid that everyone else misses out on the demo for skyrim
    it would kickass if they put it on xbox live for people to play as well
    dang it all not fair.... i think everyone would benefit from the demo being at home then we could play it until it comes out for real
    still wonder what rockjoint does, maybe its like the kneecap from a rockmonster the wolf ate that would be weird 0_o

    Great Game

    Ok she got to talk to Todd Howard, thumbs up.

    The absolute crap out-takes of her 'playing the game' was just super imposed trailers that we have already seen.

    Wake up G4TV big fans and followers of this game are not stupid!

    She got to play it, and this is all we got? We didn't even get to see her dual-wielding fire, her character, the menu in action, or anything. -sigh-

    i respect the whole not going online and playing with other players, but I think it would be awesome to have an online arena; where you can match up with players your own level, pay an entry fee (no mods, of course), and just battle: winner takes the losers stuff and the money they paid to get in. I think this would be cool, but I would like to hear everyone elses opinions on it.

    Even though this video gave no new information and no new footage at all, I still loved watching it. Dang it! Let me play this game!
