  1. Hello Beth. I had been angry in the beginning but the last patch enabled me to play the game without freaking out over bugs all the time (have been able to work around problems) so thanks for nipping a lot of issues in the bud sooner than I had expected.

    Was wondering if there’s any news on another console update though? I imagine you might be taking longer due to the PS3 as it sounds like those players are still having a rough time of it. Any estimate would be appreciated.

  2. Please, please do something to fix Japhet’s Folly. I can use the placemeat command to move out but my leveled companion is STUCK there – trying to respawn them at my location just sticks the starting, unleveled and un-equipped “generic” version there with me. Help.

  3. Ok great PC is gettin the update yipy skippy (lame) what about the people who can’t go into the command prompt to complete quests or enter towns talk to npcs or even get married????? Were is our fix look I’m lvl 58 doing the glory of the dead on ps3 and can complete it cus the damn game freezes hard core… oh wait and let’s not forget the memory issue that Betheza said they fixed… well got news you didn’t . I know you all are out there saying oh he must hate the game that’s why he is narking on so much NEWS FLASH! (Wrong) love the story graphic concept and gameplay don’t like the fact that just searching the web found over 450 bugs glitches and overall problem with the game… shame on betheza shame should have learned from fall out 4 nv. So in short would love to finish the game but can’t b/c game froze if any one knows how to fix the glory of the dead would love to hear cus I’m guessing betheza won’t fix it.

  4. i have problem with the companions quest “Hired Muscle” but cant complete it cause the person i was order to beat down was Commander Maro and i already killed the Dark Brotherhood. and all he says to me is ” ill make sure the emperor hears of all youve accomplished” and theres no options to beat him down

  5. How do I download patches for elder scrolls:Skyrim? I’ve been to steam and google, yet no luck in finding the actual download.

  6. when I try to play Skyrim, the character is not well controlled with the mouse and the interaction with other people in the game is foggy and I just about have to stand on top of them to interact.

  7. ok i play on the 360. from the start i had issues of quest items not leaving once the quest is done(very annoying with the 300 weight limit my mage has, just distracting for my other characters.) falling through the floor of solitude, and walking through whiterun’s walls. guards not yielding when i sheath the weapons. some minor load issues of ice spikes loading in front of me upon going out side. weapon racks in all house glitching. invincible hawks that i can fire 12 ice spears into, dragons that dont decay and release souls (trying to get words is a pain when 1 out of 10 dragons actualy grants soul upon death. unlootable bodies and bodies that fall throgh the floor. people disappearing and winding up out side whiterun half in the ground then duplicating, oh and my person favorite when wearing the archmage cloths and a dragon mask my face disappears and i can see the inside back of the hood (looks kind cool), and that’s the game play glitches.
    story line i would like more connectivity, say if i beat the emperor and his niece to death for the brotherhood with my hands i can still join the legion. or sit there in brotherhood armor and talk to the mora tong guy in the thieves guild and he doesn’t freak out.
    just the little things that stack up, thats all i have to add to the already decent list of bugs, many of which i encounter like i said on the 360.

  8. fix the whindhelm house glitches… i can’t even begin blood on the ice despite fast traveling from every hold to windhelm… this is one of my favorite games but you guys didn’t do a very good job of checking the glitches before selling. If i didn’t have x box live to install fixes i’d have been very upset

  9. One thing I believe Bethesda should take into consideration is the fact that the water in Skyrim has no waves, the borders or the outlines of water are straight-which I have noticed in past Elder Scrolls series. If anyone saw this, please like, so Bethesda can look at the water and add way more detail. I obsess over the small details since I’m an artist.

  10. I dont have the steam version i actually refuse to use that entire system but i obtained my version at my local wal-mart so how do go about getting the update without steam?

  11. Please fix the bug for Tending the Flames finding King Olaf’s verse. I am stuck at the ruby dragon claw door–I’ve entered the correct sequence for the door, but it won’t let me through. I am unable to escape the dungeon and come back; please help!
