    So they removed repair hammers....WTF? But it looks like they still have the gay charge on your items (I believe).

    I loved in Morrowind if you had a sword that did fire damage it did it all the time. FOREVER. In Oblivion the charge on a fire sword would be gone in like one dungeon and it was such a pain in the ass to recharge that crap. I never bothered with it. So WTF Bethesda? Really?

    Truth. I never even bothered learning how to recharge weapons, I just avoided them.

    This is not the game to have romances in. The character you create is an avatar character with little to no personal stake in the NPC's around you. Unlike say Mass Effect or Persona, a romance here would be out of place like it was in the Fable games.

    And yeah, taking out too many features again....I miss spears as weapons damn it.

    Oh, man you’re kidding, right? There are two ways to recharge magic weapons: One go to the mages guild hall in a city, or the Arcane University find the person who does recharges and pay for a recharge, which is a major pain in the ass. Two use a full soul gem to recharge your magic weapons. I would always make a spell with Soul Trap 1 second on target and Drain Health 100 points for 1 second on target and would always have Azura’s Star in my inventory. With those recharging magic weapons was nothing.

    It's a pain in the ass is what I'm saying. And I was all about soul trap/ enchanting in Morrowind I just never did it much in ESIV.

    Oh yeah. Forgot about them. I always sold them or kept them as treasure.

    Black soul gems should work. I always would make up a few, because Dremora souls are Grand in size and require a black soul gem. But I never tried to soul trap a golden saint.

    So I'm writing my preview tonight, but I'm wondering why you guys choose the race you choose.

    Obviously I'll be playing Dinosaur but why do you choose the race you play in elder scrolls?

    I choose Imperials because I like playing as a Human and they don't look weird

    Argonians (the Dinosaur people) are my favorite. They breath water! And if that isn’t enough they’re immune to poison 100% and disease 75% and start out with a bonus to security (in Oblivion). They make good mages, ok warriors, and good stealth characters.

    Watched 40 minutes of game-play today.

    This will be the WORST 2 months of waiting in my life.

    Yeah I've seen that too. Imagine what an hour of hands-on did. I took it in stride, knowing it'll be the only chance I have at trying the game before release, but I really can't help but look at some of the games I'm reviewing right now and say "you're not skyrim.... :(

    Yeah I really enjoyed it. Combat was better than Fallout simply because it's so much more active than backing up and repeatedly firing your gun.
