Bethesda has confirmed that you can marry “anyone” in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Interesting.. for people who are interested in this type of thing. I'm sure a lot of people will use this when they get bored ! And at least they wont be offending shitloads of gays/lesbians.
Gotta play it safe.
Yay, wasn't going to get this game before this, now I will ;D
I am guessing Joking about this game is a touchy subject, either that or homophobia runs deep through the internets =/
Okay people, calm down! No need to pop unnecessary boners.
Well that's gay...
To the Gay Gamers: You're not forgotten To the Non-Gay Men: Here you go...Lesbians To the hateful Christians: It's magic so you shouldn't be playing this secular game anyway. To the Women: Call me.
To this I say: Who cares? Is it really that big of a deal?
@LoVeRSaMa "I am guessing Joking about this game is a touchy subject, either that or homophobia runs deep through the internets =/" So what are you afraid of? It's the interent remember...what are they gona do, BAN you?
Peter Molyneux must have been on the dev team.
Too bad the State of New York beat them to it.
The image says, "freedom". It should say "tyranny".
tplarkin7, No... it should say, "Our not so secret political agenda"
The question is, can a nord marry a beast like kHajiit or argonians???
How is that a troll question? In the Elder Scrolls world they're all anthropomorphic and usually own homes and businesses.
That whole "can't tell if troll or just stupid" statement has become criminally overused at this point. It's incredibly annoying seeing people regurgitate memes over & over again. Please stop it. Thanks.
lol That's pretty funny. And hey, smilydude, that's all people do. Do you even know what a meme is? You enjoying that english language there, bub?
well instead of trying to debate trolling in the elder scrolls novel a breton is married to an argonian so i don't see why they wouldn't allow you to marry mixed races good book by they way if your an elder scrolls fan go pick it up
Hey, Walowitz in TBBT was, and I paraphrase:' 'clicking the brains out of a sluty troll under the bridge of tortured souls' If you cant marry the...uh..THING, why not enjoy eachother. ^.^
I don't think you people get that Rainbow-Dash was trying to be funny. He was replying to the meme complaint with a meme.
^ Thank you, someone gets it. Hey sometimes the joke flies, sometimes it goes down in flames.
@Rainbow-Dash your like 5 years too late with that joke. lurk moar
@Pillville And? His "joke" wasn't terribly funny or witty. All it did was demonstrate his ability regurgitate memes, again.
DRAGONBORNE ON DRAGONBORNE.... HOWS THAT GONNA WORK?
Either way, it'll end up a no sex marriage.
It's funny coz it's true! I wonder if after you get married they start nagging you not to go out on so many quests and ask what time your coming home....and then ignore you if your late.
@turgore - Pretty sure it was arrogance and cowardice.
Maybe they'll have a Hot Coffee-like mod hidden in Skyrim...
Now I will not buy this game.
If you decide not to marry same-sex in your playthrough, than your copy will not have same-sex marriage in it! My copy of the game won't have same-sex marriage in it!
Matt Bomer (aka Neal Caffrey) is gay. Just thought I'd throw that out there :)
Then maybe you should exit life as well, there's same sex marriage here too.
Good, cause my female build will be doing some hot lesbo action.. NOT! Oh well, I am happy they added this for the people who would prefer it. Not my cup of tea though.
yours not? MINE will. GIGGITTY!
*waits for controversy and protest regarding same-sex marriage in video games* I bet you it will happen...It RE5 was gonna get sued for having too much black people in a game...nothings too ridiculous to happen now.. :/ Agree or Disagree if you Agree
I just want to make babies and disown them....if possible
Bethesda goes Bioware!
Bioware goes Fable
Yeah, the same place this joke is going..
I hope Bethesda doesn't go Bioware... the quality of Bioware RPGs is seriously going downhill. Just look at the graphics in Dragon Age and pulling RPG elements from Mass Effect 2 to make it a third person shooter.
That's already happening and has been for some time. Now, they aren't disturbing the major elements that give the series its uniqueness. But like many recent RPGs, they have been conforming to popular trends and precedents to obtain that elusive "wider audience". Whether you notice or care about the changes I guess depends on what you value in an RPG like TES.
Elements - Your comment always comes up when someone says Bioware. I think the problem comes from people who play JRPG's and expect every other game to have some of those same elements. WRPG have a different spin on RPG's and fans here love it. Mass Effect is a scifi shooter what do you expect Bioware to do, add stuff like turnbase battles, CHARACTER Level Ups, Random fights,Majic, SUMMONS...... I love my WRPG like Fall Out,Mass Effect, Oblivion, Fable because they are different.
Okay what the hell, element is talking about bioware dumbing their games down to appeal to the masses. At no point did he specify jrpg elements, he stated graphics and rpg elements being removed from me2. How did you misinterpret this as wrpg vs jrpg issue? @title Lmao so this is important to some people, gay cross-species relationships in video games. What the hell ever, i'll probably get disagrees, just for not caring about gay's being portrayed equally in games, as regular people ect. Show me 1 damn retail game where a character's sexuality, actually has some significance relevancy to the gameplay and no god of wars mini games doesn't count. Until then stop bringing a irrelevant issue(your sexuality) to games, straight or gay it's meaningless in gaming.
I don't usually play JRPGs. I prefer western style RPGs. I do play a few JRPGs but I really don't like them that much. Random battles (it's getting better), metrosexual characters, and generic plots are a huge turn off. I don't want to watch 10 minute cutscenes, I want to fight orcs, bandits, trolls, and dragons, not f#*ked up looking creatures ala Dragon Quest and most JRPGs.
Last proper good Bioware game was Jade Empire. ME... It isn't an rpg and is bad as a shooter, though the setting and story were amazing. (thats genuinely the only reason, a very valid reason, anybody could like ME or they havn't played any other RPGs or shooters) But anyway... on topic. It's a game - it's just maths and logic creating some pixels and audio. There is no need for any controversy at all.
I must agree. Dragon age 1 is not like ....nr 2
All I ever wanted.
Makes sense. If a game provides such huge amount of choices and lets your character get married in the first place, then why the heck not?
becouse in the past all kinds of perverts were burned in fire not marying each other?
i have nothing against gays, but to able to do that in game really sucks, for me it ruines experience just by knowing that same noble knight paladin, can marry some dragon hunter or whatever. This is not normal
"becouse in the past all kinds of perverts were burned in fire not marying each other?" Yeah, I hate it when my magical, dragon-filled fantasy games aren't historically accurate.
this shit just got real
Can't wait for this game :D
As a follower of Jesus, I believe that the lifestyle that I have been shown through the Bible is intended for those who wish to be disciples of Jesus. It is not any follower's place to start telling unbelieving people off for being homosexual. To do so undermines Jesus on a very serious scale.
Are you sure? I suspect you have completely lost your saltiness. To start judging people is wrong obviously but to not point out something that will lead to an eterntity in hell would be just plain wrong.
Some people have posted the argument about being born gay... Do you think people are born to be shy? Born to be a looser? Born to be jerks? Born to be great leaders (a.k.a. Manifest Destiny)? No. Their character is influenced by their environment and the opportunities they are given. Some argue that certain genetic make up contribute to such characteristics, which can be a factor, but if that person isn't given the environment or opportunity to become shy, a looser, a jerk, or a great leader... then they will never become.
Ahem... "loser" not "looser"... Sorry. Although, some people are given the opportunity or choice to become "looser", though I'm not saying how.
I'm so excited to meet my future Nord wife.
I am excited for your Nordic wife. How much do you want for her?
At least two and a half goats.
awesome!! I shall marry a bloke then kill em afterwards :)
So, Does this mean you can marry a dragon?
thinkin the same thing
Look how that worked out for Drago in game of thrones. He married a dragon and died.
Honestly, have not watched the show nor read the books. Same with True Blood. Just now trying to get into Breaking Bad.
