Having to avoid the GiantBomb forums, sad times.

This sucks, lol. On the front page, nearly every forum post is about Skyrim, and I feel left out. I don't have the game yet, I'm not even sure when I'm going to bother picking it up - probably when a GOTY edition comes out ;) - so I feel at a loss. I have nothing to add to most conversations and I want to avoid any and all spoilers.

I hope to see more duders talk about sandwiches or something, that is my bread and butter... Oh the puns.

Hmm, this has become like a blog, so I shall make it a blog post instead, and say hey, more of you guys should follow me or message me on my wall, I want to get to know the GiantBomb community more.. I lost touch with a lot of guys, so hey! Gimme a follow or write on my wall and we can chat abouts games...

Just don't spoil Skyrim for me.

Love, Baillie xo

@Baillie: Welcome to my Steam notifications. There are presently 4 people on my friends list playing Skyrim right now. Being an idiot I bought LA Noire instead...

Posted by Baillie

@nintendoeats: Hey, L.A. Noire is pretty good, especially for the first time you play it! Although, yes. Skyrim does seem like the better choice, you have failed yourself.

Posted by HellBrendy

@nintendoeats: Only 4? I have 14 people on my list playing it.

I'm waiting for the GotY-edition, all I have to do is hold on til Saints Row The Third comes out.

Posted by Lunar_Aura

All this Skyrim almost makes me miss the frequent girl advice threads. Almost.

Posted by Baillie

@HellBrendy: That's more of the kind of number I have, except doubled. 30+ usually, urgh. I'm avoiding all friends, haha.

@Lunar_Aura: Any advice to give? :D

@Baillie: That PC port is locked at 30 fps, but regularly dips below that because it's poorly multithreaded (It always maxes out the first core of my Q6600). I've also had 2 patches of more than a gig each since it came out. They both fixed major things (missing VO and reflective surfaces that were busted). It has been an unpleasant experience up and down. I should have just bought the 360 version and saved myself some damn money.

Yeah. I'm in the same boat, duder. Ah well.

I wonder if rendering at 60 breaks the custom facial animation stuff, or they couldn't get it to look normal or something. Either way shoddy PC ports are always a drag.

@Baillie: Touch her shoulder.

@Baillie: I feel your pain, it often happens with big releases.
Posted by Barrock

Don't wait. The game is absolutely massive. Get it now.

Posted by PrivateIronTFU

Sometimes I have to avoid the forums for completely different reasons.

Posted by GreggD

Yeah...I'm not seeing any threads about Skyrim on the front page.

Posted by Masha2932

Don't worry I'm in the same boat. I really want Skyrim but I'll wait for the inevitable Game of the year edition.

O...oh. That's unfortunate.
 
I did enjoy LA Noire for the most part, but Skyrim has completely surprised and amazed me.
Posted by MiniPato

I make an effort to avoid threads or forums for any game I play until I beat the game. There are very few exceptions to this. If it's a game I can beat in a two or three days, it's not hard. Haven't gotten Skyrim yet, but I haven't been looking at any threads for it either.

Posted by Still_I_Cry

It is a great game.

I feel that way about every game I am looking forward to.

It sucks :(

Posted by Arker101

G.o.t.Y deliberations will start soon, but Skyrim is such a huge release though, people will still be talking about it well into December. Every time I see a Skyrim thread, it makes me want to go play more Skyrim. Even though It's out, I'm still super giddy about it.

Edited by Guided_By_Tigers

Yeah I'm not interested in Skyrim and 50% or more of the new topics are all Skyrim.....oh well I'm getting Halo Anniversary today.

Posted by Melvargh

SPOILERS: There are flame swords

Posted by TheSouthernDandy

Just wait till old republic comes out they'll all be about that. Maybe.

Don't feel left out, say anything you want about Skyrim. I didn't get it either, but it's because I'm slowly building up an interest in the game, and it is about the last thing I want to play right now, with sooo much else

+ I don't have any friends :(

Posted by Deusx

@Baillie: You should join Google+. We have our own little GB community there (it's actually pretty big) and it's REALLY awesome.

Don't feel bad, I have no friends either!

Wait, are we talking about real life or internet friends?

Posted by Lavapotamus

It's like Dark Souls all over again. :(

I didn't/won't play either game, but my roommates love them both and it's kind of fun to stop in their rooms every once in a while to see their progress. I just love games that draw a community together like this, even if I'm left out of it. Reminds me of the days my friends and I used to work together to get through Pokemon.

unlucky. its been flawless on my i7 2600/GTX570 PC

Posted by SSully

I felt the same way when Dark Souls came out. It seemed like every day there were atleast 2 or 3 posts on the main page about it and I didn't own it!

So there's this girl right. We hang out a lot, and talk to each other all the time almost.

Should I do her?

Having to avoid the forums because of Skyrim. **tisk, tisk, tisk.** Be glad that is the only reason you avoid the GB forums, because I got it worse.

Posted by huntad

It was between Batman and Skyrim for GotY for me, but I'm on the PS3 version and the framerate is dropping way below any playable framerate. Now, it has dropped down and my excitement has died down a lot.
