I think its awesome that you can make your own armor and weapons.

Gunshot2324d ago

Makes complete sense to me, update the system for a better overall experience.

Pintheshadows2324d ago

This is some peoples idea of dumbing down.

Dumbasses.

InfiniteJustice2324d ago

These days 'dumbing down' = making the game a better experience.

For some reason 'hardcore' gamers dislike any game that moves away from unrefined, tedious, and essentially outdated gameplay mechanics.

I just can't understand why people would complain so much about such little things

Perkel2324d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

how giving less is better ? First i thought oh yeh they will improve armor system to be like morrowind.

and there goes...

It's not improvement it's dumbing down !

" 'hardcore' gamers" don't like selling them less as improvement or more..

crafting system in oblivion was nerfed already.

They should bring more armours.

Witcher 2 have tons of armours and those armors are very diffrent to each other.

In oblivion steel armors looks every where the same.

i wish you could create custom decals for your armour, but hey, i guess that's what mods are for. November 11 here we come!

MidnytRain2324d ago

Isn't your character always facing away from you?

emmerin2324d ago

no, you can turn the camera

Fayulah2324d ago

Ya custom decals would rock since they would give an unique appeal to the armor parts

Good. Tired of finding that ONE GUY with the Daedric Armor. You get so happy until you realize its just the shield or the boots. Or that it isnt Daedric at all, he just loves using Bound Armor spells

Breadisgood2324d ago

Sounds good to me, the only problem I have with it is that it's not out yet.

BeastlyRig2324d ago (Edited 2324d ago )

Just rip off 4 pages from your calender, Close your eyes & spin 3 times saying skyrim 6 times then wait till 11/11/11 & it will go faster! Trust me!

I might buy cod first though...

this guy said
"ruining a unique feel of collecting and grinding various pieces of the armor parts."

after bethesda said "This helps create armor styles that have the look we needed for Skyrim. In most of the Nordic designs we created, the upper armor would completely cover the lower armor, making it unnecessary. We get much better visual results combining those pieces, and it renders a lot faster too, so we can put more people on screen, so that was an easy tradeoff for us. We can also make a lot more armors now, so the number and variation types are more than we’ve ever had."

makes no sense that means there will me more unique armor and it will look a lot better as well i don't see the problem, especially if there is going to be more NPC's and with the fact were able to interact with them 20X more than oblivion will be awesome

Perkel2324d ago

I'll translate this to you :

"This helps create armor styles that have the look we needed for Skyrim. In most of the Nordic designs we created, we used upper armor to cover the lower armor, to make it unnesesery. We get much better framerate, and give us more FPS, so we can get stable FPS, we had to do this for console optimaalization. We can also make a lot more armors now, so the number and variation types are more than 8 or 10. "

They could do easly graves and gualnets if they want.
