Cant decide whether to preorder or wait for the GotY Edition.

This game will be day 1 for me.

You're not serious are you? This isn't a game to fill in the development schedule spot like New Vegas. It's an all new Elder Scrolls for God's sake. PRE ORDER IT NAOW!
StanLee  +   1409d ago
Yeah but you know there'll inevitably be a GOTY Edition with all the DLC. That's the kind of bullshit you have to deal with. I'm finding that if you buy a game at launch you usually get screwed. Shit like that pisses people off.

Dude, I've had this game pre-ordered and paided off since January of this year. I'm more worried about what to wear to the midnight release than pre-ordering the game at this point. I'm stuck between wearing my full out samurai gear or just walk in with my viking helmet on and my Scottish claymore.

Well
I am wondering if there will be a collectors edition...

A physical map is a little pointless when you can look at the in game one so easily. The one in-game even tells you where you are on it.

A lot of people would like one, seriously. I loved the days when games came with a map and a big manual and all that other crap most people wouldn't care for nowadays. Every rpg should come with a map you can fold out and look at, it makes it a bit more immersive.

Sure it's a bit geeky, but it adds to the fun.

Physical map? What is this 1986?

Nah Man its 1492!

How else are we gonna discover the new world!

I hope in skyrim you can make notes on the in-game map. There were so many instances where i would find a safe/chest that i couldn't open yet because my lockpick skill wasn't high enough. Then when i finally got my lockpick to 100 i couldn't remember where the treasure was :(

I'm sure some one will have it scanned in 10min after they get home and have it posted on the internet for everyone to print off,..

though i think it would just be better if they gave that map to anyone who buys the game NEW.

...or wait until someone scans it and posts it on the Internet.

I've already got it pre-ordered along with my 5th Anniv. Oblivion copy. I look forward to never using the map, just as I never used Oblivion's map...

Nope. That was saying the pre-orders had a special map. This is saying all other versions don't have anything.
mananimal  +   1409d ago
