The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Catch-All

Kill one of those minutes:

Oh sh*t looks like Microsoft decided to roll out the new Dashboard beta today. Just flipped on my Xbox to play a bit of Forza 4 to kill some time before midnight and now it is updating. Anyone else in the preview program may want to turn theirs on and get this out of the way before Skyrim time.

Heh. Thanks for that.

I'm surprised at myself looking forward to playing even after hearing of the usual bugs and UI issues.
I guess I need something to wash out the bad taste that Rage eventually left me. I just uninstalled it. Good experience (till the end) but very narrow and focused considering all that could be done with the game world. Maybe Fallout 3 and Fallen Earth as spoiled me for openworld post-apoc settings.

So here one again the potential of a fleshed out open Fantasy world that I would be able to explore and discover on my own time? It's exciting.

Well, no shipping status on my order and its 918PM. Guess I'll cancel and buy from Steam. I don't need to play at midnight, I just want it before the weekend!

Give it time, perhaps. Amazon has never missed a release-day release that I've seen.

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but they have. Just recently they botched a ton of Dark Souls deliveries.

Yeah, tried to cancel and Amazon said no, it is marked as "left warehouse" which is weird since it stills says not shipped. Plus this guy said:

"Jose David:Items can't be shipped before they're released. It's always been like that. We use express delivery and local carrier delivery in these cases so that you can get the item the same day."

So you guys that have it as shipped status, Amazon is lying to you! ;)

It must vary based on location because Amazon gave me a working UPS tracking # at 5:40. Though, I do live extremely close to one of their warehouses I think. I have Prime and nearly everything that ships with the free 2-day arrives the next day. I was sort of hoping that might happen with Skyrim but I guess it wouldn't have mattered since Steam is controlling the unlock.

Happy now, I've had zero issues since changing the sound setting as described earlier

Steam is getting less and less responsive as launch time starts. People refreshing much?

Good to hear, I wonder if we should pre-emptively do the same

40 Minutes. Just got the latest nvidia drivers, pre-emptively changed my sound settings, and am going to play a bit of MTG until midnight. I'm gonna be the first mfer on the East Coast to unlock this bitch!

Awesome.

Edit: It does appear that playing with buckets and whatnot is quite popular. There are a bunch of vids on YouTube of people just screwing around.

I saw that the beta Nvidia drivers have Skyrim added for SLI and 3D Glasses... I don't have either. Think I'm good with the regular drivers?

I assume it'll be fine.. it's just Fallout 3 with swords.

Back from the Gamestop and got my ticket. Time to play one last hour of TF2 before this game consumes me.

New catch-all!
