    It is freeware and this is where I got the copy. Comes with DOSbox too. It's an amazing game... back in 1996. Don't know if it aged well.

    Daniel, I could picture you playing with your Argonian screaming, "DINOSAUR PEOPLE!" as you charge into battle.

    My Argonian characters will all have the custom class "Dinosaur People" from now on.

    Skyrim will be playable to audiences at PAX Prime. And oh yeah also this. All the pre-made faces (20 for each race) that show off some incredible range. Of course, you're an asshole if you choose a pre-made character instead of spending two hours crafting your own. But still! Pretty! The Argonians look amazing and I also love the High Elf design. My only gripes may be that human females all look really skinny necked with tiny jaws, and that Redgards look less Afro than usual.

    You HAVE to ask if you get to play with the dinosaur peoples.

    You'll also probably surprise everyone if you make a male named Scourge. Any Morrowind player worth their salt will appreciate that reference.

    Deus Ex's amazingness has me wanting Scrolls IV even more now! Don't really know why. Perhaps because the gaming season has begun!

    So excited about the no armor/weapon degradation!

    Is November really 2+ months away? Fuck...

    ALSO: Gay marriage! A marriage system though? I had no clue... but, GAY MARRIAGE! Time to be flamboyant, agree?

    I really don't like that, partly since it was never that big of a deal but definitely not something that should've been removed.

    Sure, although if you got in a tricky spot with no repair hammers in your inventory it sucked. So, there is always that.

    That's precisely what made it good. Because it meant that you couldn't just run around willy nilly without keeping an eye on your equipment. It added more depth to it, sorta like the hardcore mode in New Vegas, though not to the same degree.

    GAY VIKINGS! HUZZAH!

    And i would like to point out that the elder scroll series were never renown for the convenience. Every time the developers say "We finally remove..." in their videos, I start to sigh. It's like Fast travel again and yes i know! It's the most convenient aspect in oblivion and all of the elder scrolls series but it gave this charm, like being a traveler walking down the muddy roads in vvanderfell, enjoying the scenery.
    And yet, you'll see me defend fast travel today now... My god what have i become...

    Logo and used are right. Repair hammers breaking sucked but that was part of the game, a part that added way more than it detracted.

    Change of subject. Preorder goodies, who got the best?

    They've been saying from the beginning that they're going to allow romance shit in the game, so if they're going to do it why not have gay marriage too?

    Honestly, though, they shouldn't have either. Partly because it'll suck.
