So GameInformer's review is up and what was written does not make it a 9.5 game. Oh well. Having the announcement and early review status may have skewed some numbers. Repetitive maps, uninteresting research items, bad camera, dismissing the multiplayer. I don't see how that adds up to the score. Either it's a 9.5 to get you frothing before some so-so reviews hit, or the game will be awesome.

It always came off as they hit the mark way too late in development and it really isn't ready. I'm getting it regardless because it's filling a void and they're good developers. I'm just hoping they make enough money to make a properly done sequel.

I'm not cynical, am I?

I've played for maybe 10 hours now. Some runs I'm rushing to the exit, sometimes I'm checking everything out. I've run into the ghost maybe twice. Getting all the gold in a level is pointless. You need to worry about your health and items, that's it. I love the exploration of the game and I don't feel held back at all. In a few levels I managed to get 40K gold without any sign of a ghost. I guess it'll be less of an issue once you learn the game.

@fox01313: In a mine it is easy to spot, yes. But ones out in the wild are tricky to spot. So while the mod is helpful, it is kind of dumb that it makes it look like it's molten lava.

If Skyrim and Rage had a baby, we'd have no day/night cycles and no modding. Plus pop-in everywhere.

@Aas: I didn't have a house at the time. Was weighed down and all the armor was inferior, so I sold it to the fence.

No will this thieves guild armor problem prevent me from 100% completion of the thieves guild. Some people are making it sound like the armor bug keeps you from the achievement. That would suck.

I think it works like this: There are 4 stages of vampirism. When you get to the last stage, you're a scumbag who's attack on sight. The key is to feed. Drink the blood of someone sleeping. Break into a house and sneak around. Then you should go back to stage 1 and be pretty normal looking. So you gotta balance it out.

What happens is if you do a lot of crimes that don't increase your bounty, there's still going to be assassin's etc sent after you. You'll have a reputation, but it can't be proven, so they take the law into their own hands. Makes sense and it's a small balance to your horrible exploits.

I believe the difficulty of the enemy effects this. Swing your sword at a dragon or a giant and you will see it level up pretty quickly.

I'm currently level 24 and it's getting a helluva lot easier to get money now. I was in the high teens when I bought the house and fully upgraded it. It hurt me a lot. Within a couple of hours I had 10K again. Seems now chests all over the place have circlets and gems in them. It's very common. So low weight high value has been more and more prevalent. It's great.
