  1. Ooooh!Our first glimpse of Alduin.Hopefully we get to actually fight and kill him ourselves instead of just watching someone else do it.

  2. Lol who else is aware that gstaff is looking at how much we are complaining about the price, complaining about the stuff in it, and complaining about the bullshit lawsuit. But sadly nothing is being done D: Bethesda is turning into Infinity Ward and saying Eff you fans, we don’t want to hear you out this last time.

  3. Man…. I need to get out football camp and start working again so I can make the remaining $90 and boost my preorder from just game to collectors edition!

  4. Yes it is expensive as a stand alone price,and we all like to get what we can for the lowest price,but when you work out what i have read that there is between 100/300 hours of game play,then it softens the initial blow of the outlay,plus the extras statue book etc.Well thats what i told myself when i placed my pre-order.

  5. I took my money off the regular Copy Pre-order of Skyrim and bought the Collectors Edition. It all looks so Fantastic. The Map is outstanding!

  6. I love the elder scrolls games but no way am i paying £110 more than i can get the standard version for for a dvd il never watch or a PLASTIC dragon! knock the price down to about the £60 range and maybe, just maybe il consider buying it
