    I like his face when he said "thanks for the exclusive". He looked sarcastic. Like he was thinking: oh.. vampires. Woopdeedoo.

    They ain't saying anything about werewolves because it creates much word-of-mouth, which is great marketing.
    Werewolves? Where? Wolves? Men that are wolves? Many wolves. Everywhere. Many men. That is enough for M'aiq.

    They had the vampire character in one of the other Scrolls. I learned how to avoid that disease. It was real scary to turn into the vampire and it was scary turning into the wolf. So I was able to get rid of those diseases as soon as I contracted them. That was too sick for me but it was fun for some other people.No way I am going to turn into that so let me know if you figure out how to avoid it.

    That's the only part of the game that I hate. I do not want to turn into a vampire. It is so so scary when it happens. They had that in one of the other games but I avoided it. So how do you avoid turning into a vampire in this game?

    Hey, as long as this go around when I play this on my PS3 I can not only play as a vampire....but you know can actually "successfully" obtain the "cure" for it without some glitch that has yet to be fixed to this day mind you (no I'm not bitter at all).

    If they do have a quest to obtain a cure for it, and it works with not glitch, no need to obtain the original release for playing your GOTY edition to make this cure work, if I don't have to do that at all, then it will be a good and glorious day when this game finally comes out.

    'But don t think is simply some kind of novelty skin that Bethesda is slapping onto a character model in order to merely cash in on the vampire craze of the past few years."

    Yeah, because there wasn't any other Elder Scrolls games with vampires in it.

    "I don't want to say a sleeper hit..."

    But clearly you're implying that it sort if was/is, which is insane. This is the fifth game in the series. Fans have been following it for many months now, and have been looking forward to it since Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion concluded. It's just an absurd comment.

    I would imagine a dragons skin is to thick to sink your teeth into

    One of the smartest things Bethesda did was announce the 11.11.11 release date. Thats a Friday if I remember right and that means I won't have to call in sick so I can stay home and play it...until Monday the 14th

    This vampire thing isn't really new... In Oblivion you could contract the vampire disease and if you don't cure it in time you become a vampire.. You could also feed off of people so you didn't get hurt in the sun and if you didn't feed you'd still die. Soooo yea.. there's not really anything new about the vampire thing as far as i can see. OH yea and the ps3 vampires was not a glitch I mean cmon, once you become a vampire you get different abilities and powers for each stage of vampirsm you went through. Pretty much the same as these "new" vampires in Skyrim. Why even ""reveal"" something that we already know about...

    I really hope that Skyrim has loads of books like in Morrowind. And being a vampire is more detailed than in Oblivion

    I hope they'll bring back some of the awesome potions that you had in Morrowind.

    I hope they'll bring back some of the custom potions that were in Morrowind.

    Forget the main story! My Blacula is gonna make his 3rd story in the series... After killing everyone with a name in the cities of Tamriel of course ;) Just like Vvardenfell all those years ago. Ah, the memories!
