So remember those spears...

...that people have been wanting in Skyrim? The ones rumored to be in the Dragonborn DLC? Well here they are....

...hahaha what a load of shit...

Surely they aren't just ammo for a bow. That doesn't even make sense.

#3 Posted by august (3827 posts) -

Oh no. No spears.

I guess I'll forget that I've had a ton of fun with this dlc and demand a refund.

Because there weren't spears.

Huh. Well, as a PC player I have to wait for this DLC anyway, this means I will just... still get it as soon as it comes out. Seriously, I had fun with spears in Morrowind, but I don't have to have them back. And getting to use spears as arrows? That is fucking awesome.

That actually is pretty cool since they are little imp sized spears.

#6 Posted by Sumbog (482 posts) -

Maybe we get big boy spears which can be used as spears. These are imp spears, so they arent really big enough for a human to use as spears.

How can you guys not be excited for this? It's like Brad Muir's game now, except his game lets you shoot maces and axes instead.

Haha, so true. Such a great piece of content and this is what people are complaining about? Boggles the mind.

You 360 folk get the DLC a month before the rest of mortalkind. We PC folk get spears modded into the game whenever we want. Everything has its ups and downs.

But, yeah, it's a tremendously stupid thing to complain about.

Oh wow, those youtube comments. People are pissed !

#12 Posted by VarkhanMB (159 posts) -

Had they been advertised by the devs as actual spears, this would have been a bigger deal. But now, there's no reason to complain: at least you can use them! Besides, PC modders will get people-sized spears if that hasn't already happened.

Spears or no, I'm done with Skyrim. It didn't really have the lasting appeal that New Vegas did for me.

And what an incredibly useless comment. Do you and the other "gamers" on here have nothing else to talk about?

It's ironic that you bitch about their bitching. No wonder I don't go on this shithole of a site anymore.

@Ulain: oh come on now. The site is decent but the forums arent good I agree. Im pretty sure this kind of stuff is peppered across the internet. These forums are the same as the rest.

Dude. Ewoks are in Skyrim!

Doesn't that make you bitching about people bitching about people bitching even more ironic?

Don't let they front door hit you on the ass on your way out.

Id love spears too but my god its really not the end of the world.

#19 Posted by MasterBrief (174 posts) -

Yeah pretty stupid. Probably because they couldn't make the animations realistic. Attacking with a spear in Morrowind looked idiotic. A lot of games get the attacks wrong. Disappointing that they are just arrows, weak arrows at that but I'm sure the rest of the DLC makes up for it.

#20 Posted by ManMadeGod (1552 posts) -

They look more like javelins that you can use with a bow. Why is this a big deal?

#21 Posted by FoolishChaos (432 posts) -

Welp... I haven't been following this too closely, did they ever actually say "HEY, this new dlc has spears!" or was it just the community putting stuff together? Because if they said it themselves, holy shit they should have known better.

#22 Posted by Prince_of_Space (82 posts) -

While the spears as arrows thing is pretty lame, nobody at Bethesda ever let on that the DLC would feature spears as distinct weapon type. All the speculation came about from people digging into the pre-dlc patch files and seeing references to animations for spears. Cue people becoming excited that spears would finally be back in the series after a ten year hiatus. As we know now these animations are used by the Riekling enemies, something that not many people realized back in November when all the rumors and hearsay began to spread about.

#23 Posted by InternetCrab (1504 posts) -

Meh, no big deal. There are several mods that add spears, so it doesn't matter (too bad for you XBOX players, NO MODS FOR YOU), and who doesn't love the rieklings?
