Either skyrim is a piece of shit... *update*

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 26, 2011, 10:41 PM


UPDATE: It was an installation problem. I reinstalled it and for the most part everything works ok.
Also Asassins Creed II and Brotherhood are extremely entertaining games.

--------------+------------------------+--------------------+---------------
...Or i have the shittiest luck when installing a game.

So i wasted money on this game, run it, and find the marvelous joys of buggyness.
No matter how many keys i pressed, the interface wouldn't work. When you decide how your character will look, you apparently have to click on one of the two arrows on the top bar that says "head - body, etc", but no matter how hard i clicked, it would only go to the next section and would refuse to go back. If i minimized the game and went back to it, it would just not allow me to change anything else in the face menu (since it was the only option i could customize), and no amount of clicks would persuade this piece of shit to do otherwise.

The menus are either extremely frustrating to navigate into, mixing keyboard with mouse clicking, or it is another installing error. The voices can't be heard, in the introduction sequence a nord guy was talking to me, but his sentences sounded like this:
"Where are yo-*BAZZZRT SCREECH SKEET BZZZZT*-hief?", this continued on for the rest of the game until i shut it down (right after the poor mapping made me rage). So either they're going for the assasin's creed effect where you are actually going back in time trough a machine, or this game is really not rubbing my "like" gonads.

I hate having to use the enter key because IT DOESN'T FUCKING WORK ON MY KEYBOARD, and there is literally no option to change the key mapping to suit my needs. I had to plug my usb controller and use Xpadder so i could use the enter and backspace key, and even then i only found out the enter key was only useful when navigating the main menu, and even then the enter key lets you enter an option like say, AUDIO, but there is no key to go back except the escape key, and there is no guarantee it'll work twice.

As yahtzee said, there is no middle finger big enough. I honestly hope this is an installing error, because i'm tired of seeing how everyone and their grandmothers yap about how great this game is. So far it has been a gigantic disappointment.

I'm going to uninstall and try again.

I'm glad to see you managed to fix your problem!


But god damn, I hate... no, hate isn't strong enough word. I LOATHE the horrible "Obviously made for consoles so fuck your mouse" interface problems! Just gonna wait for mods to fix that :D
Other then that Skyrim is one of the most fun games I've ever played (many bugs, but most of them are hilarious! Like when I was talking to someone and he just walked away, but I could still talk to him)

I kind of want to make a flash movie called "Children of Skyrim" telling the anecdotes of the retarded and poorly coded children of skyrim.

Hahaha, that would be funny actually.
Why is every child in Skyrim such a damn smug bastard!
They know they can't be killed :noes:

Yeah this sounds more like a hardware issue rather then a buggy copy. Skyrim is pretty demanding when it comes to specs

Will update later, but it was an installation problem, i just reinstalled it and it works fine. Except for the nav problems, but that's because they made the game that way.
