    Also a TON of bug fixes, including this hilariously cruel one:
    I sold my copy of Skyrim a while back, and honestly, this kind of makes me wish I hadn't. It's something that'll certainly help bring more entertainment into the game. Imagine how hard some of the Dragon Priests would be on Legendary....

    This sounds nice for console gamers--but mods that made both available were available pretty soon after the initial release of the game :< But hey--at least it's not as large a disparity as the PS3 experience of the game between the other systems!

    I stopped playing skyrim because I got stuck in that damn coffin......
    At least I can start playing again.

    I'm going to hazard a guess that "Legendary Difficulty" just means "You have to whack the monsters twice as much."

    Which... yeah, no thanks.

    I guess you can die with 1/2 of the attacks of the monsters.

    I don't really get the whole "skill reset to 15" concept.
    does that mean you become shitty at that particular skill? does that mean if you want to reset your one-handed skill to 15, every single blow you strike at enemies will only deal tiny damage? :wtf:
    I must be missing something, who would want that? I mean, I get it that it allows you to level up more, but... since enemies are leveled too, at some point if you deal shitty damage it would become literally impossible to kill enemies ?

    If you've spent 300 hrs and still not realised how much time you have lost, now think again.

    Nice bunch of bugfixes. Still Oblivion to install and play before moving on to the next gen.. I've really enjoyed Morrowind already.

    I have over 1900 hours over all my characters. It's still going up so at least I'm enjoying it.

    I guess it's mainly to reset perks. And to have a nice "LEGENDARY" (wait for it?) over your skills? :unsure: It's a cheap way to double game life for completionists, I guess...

    Niiiiiiiice, will definitely enjoy this when I replay Skyrim. Waiting for a better PC to do that though, Skyrim deserves only the best :wub:
    Can't wait to mod the living hell out of it, again.

    enjoying v/s wasting

    I've played runescape for 3 years and now I know... it wasn't worth it

    playing it to enjoy it during the free time is not an issue but playing to achieve something for 1000+ hrs seems excessive

    I screwed my character with the Forging fast leveling, so I might give another shot. And I still have to finish the two DLCs

    Meh, I got the Platinum trophy on the PS3 version so as far as I'm concerned it's finished.

    I actually have to bless the fast leveling I did with Forging. Montain Trolls and even worse, strong bandits, kept owning my ass.

    Maybe I shouldn't have started the game at Master? :unsure:

    If I thought Skyrim was boring, I doubt raising the difficulty would make it any better lol

    Hehe, one of my friends already has a heavily-modded high-difficulty game (he was talking about finally defeating a dragon after battling the same dragon for 2 weeks straight), so I doubt he'll need this.

    And I haven't actually played Skyrim since launch week, maybe I'll give it another try.

    Now I would genuinely side with you to defend a claim of there were better options than skyrim for a lot of people. However I am now curious to see what your reasons were for a call of boring? Cakewalks are often boring, especially as games have traditionally not had the narrative strength of other options for stories, and to some extent I would have accused skyrim of being one; this would have meant increased difficulty of a form, I opt for the ninja gaiden approach to hard rather than stats grinding myself mind you, could then see the game somewhat improved.
