Wow that flying bear made my day, first time I tried to kill a giant I got shot straight up into the air.

Man do I feel like a loved member of this site with this beautiful 360p quality. I hate asshole sites like GT and IGN that give me free HD content.

@ABK_92: Would you feel silly if I told you that you've been watching 360p videos on this site since it launched?

Yeah that UI might work will with a controller but it is a holy mess with a mouse and keyboard. It completely counter intuitive and takes forever to do anything.

Oh dude, that's the Mace of Molag Bol. DAEDRIC QUESTS?

Dude, Daedric quests. The ones I've found so far are awesome, and the badassery of that mace speaks for itself.

I don't know why I'm watching this after watching hours of this game yester--A DRAGON!

In some inn miles and miles away, folks are sitting down for dinner. Suddenly a bear comes crashing through the ceiling!

@atomic_dumpling: It doesn't get old, ever.

That is a GREAT part!!!

Ways I'm sold to this game

Skills - sold

Crafting - sold

Saber getting hit by Giant and flies up in the air - F***ing sold!

I'm watch this, but I'd rather play it instead, plus this is the console version.

I clipped the best part. You'll know which one.

Posted by vonFlampanker

Skyrim and Battlefield 3 are polar opposite examples of how to/how not to do a good in-game user interface. I wish BF3 had a quarter of Skyrim's usability in choosing weapons, items and loadouts.

Gameplay looks just as awful as Oblivion.

@Brad: Are the Daedric quests a challenge even for a character of really high level like yours Brad?

thanks for not spoiling very much

Jeff: "Ice drains stamina."

Brad: "Oh, I didn't know that."

Isn't Brad "Five stars" Shoemaker the best reviewer ever?

Cool, so we can assume you'll spare us your opinions about every game you play until you can recite every minute and invisible aspect of their mechanical design?

Sounds good, but will it run Crysis?

That's a bit of a dodge though, isn't it? The compression in these new youtube videos is a lot higher then it was back in the days of yore.

Skip to 28 minutes for the game moment of the year.
 
Hell, any moment of the year.

Well said. Jeff, in one of his jar times, touched on why reviewers don't need to know everything about a game or even necessarily finish it in order to write a good, working, informative review and I couldn't agree more.

Everyone on Whiskey writes some good reviews. It's up to the reader to get to know the reviewers so that can decide how much stock they want to put into what they write based on their own values and what they like to see in games. If you want a very in depth review on game mechanics then maybe don't use Brad ad your go-to guy when you want to read a review.

Seems like the giants are much tougher foes to fight than dragons...giantrim?

I prefer the YouTube videos. Lately every browser I use has been making my Flash videos crash all the time. YouTube doesn't crash on me.

It sounds like Jeff has either forgotten about Portal 2 or didn't like it. Either way I hope Ryan represents Portal 2 during the GotY podcast since that game is far better than anything else that has come out this year so far.

Yeah, but I'd start to watch at 27 minutes in, Jeff's intro is gold as well. It's really great stuff.

Yes, yes.  I retract my original statement and agree with you.
 
Also, 40:30.

Dear Mr Brad Shoemaker

I quite like you. You are the reason I still like Games Journalism and still want to be in Games Journalism. Don't let silly dumb people with dumb opinions and dumb comments from the internet sully your attitude, because they are silly and dumb and from the internet.

I also still appreciate your signature of my copy of John Woo Presents: Stranglehold.

@emem: And the plot twist when the letter arrives a few minutes later.  Amazing.

Posted by Draxyle

Even after 12 hours of Skyrim yesterday, I love how this quicklook showed a bunch of stuff that even Greg didn't encounter. Zombie chickens, flying bears, I couldn't stop laughing. I had low expectations for this game, but a much improved version of Oblivion is enough to sell me to it.

Not dodging, just addressing this specific, specious complaint that keeps popping up. When people start bringing up bitrate I'll concede that as a valid issue. :P
