i buy the Hardcover for 3 Dollars on Amazon...
I ordered 2 copies of BF3, so Skyrim+Guide cost me both: 43usd :P

...i think i will just figure my way out as i play the game XD lol. (improvisation FTW)

Yeah, where's the fun in playing if you're having a strategy guide lay it all out for you?

And if I was really stuck in one particular area and absolutely could not figure it out on my own after exhaustive attempts, then there's always the Internet.

@raWfodog I think the maps could be useful, but I like experimenting with builds and stuff. DOn't need a guide to tell me what to do

Hi,

Do you know if the CD guide is going to be specially numbered (kind like the F3, and New Vegas ones)?
Lucreto  +   1068d ago
Not from what I can see.

I feel like after reading that I'd need to take an exam.

Dunno, it's not like Elder scrolls though, it's amount of playtime get double by the amount of deaths etc.
Columbo  +   1068d ago
384 pages. http://www.amazon.com/Souls...

I highly recommend buying this if you like hardcover guides.
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1068d ago
It was 384 pages like Columbo said BUT it covered EVERYTHING in the game.

Human Analog  +   1068d ago

Heartnet  +   1068d ago
Kindle is more than Big enough :) 1000 page book is like half a meg xD
BABY-JEDI  +   1068d ago
Is that BIG print or smallish print???
IrishAssa  +   1068d ago

BABY-JEDI  +   1068d ago

Does anyone read the strategy guides anyway? Who cares how long it is.
WolfLeBlack  +   1068d ago
I do! Call me old fashioned but there's something nice about having a hafty guide to consult when I'm playing through a big game. My Oblivion guide is like a Holy Bible to me.

I always get guides for RPGs I'm excited for. Especially if they have lots of side quest stuff. Not only are they great reading material for the toilet, but in a game like Skyrim they can tell you about alot of stuff you otherwise may have never found. I typically don't use them for character builds, or to get through the main quest. Main quests are usually pretty linear anyway. But in like the case of Oblivion, I probably would have missed a good quarter of the side quests. And Skyrim has alot more side quests than Oblivion.

Of course I could get all the same info for free online, but I'm really more happy having the book myself. Especially when it's a game I never intend to trade in. Almost like a set. I didn't need a guide at all for Dragon Age Origins , but I'm still glad I have it. I still have all my original guides for every Final Fantasy I've owned. Two for FF1 lol. The original I ordered through Nintendo Power when I was like 11, and the new FF1 guide for the 20th Anniversary PSP version.

I guess you're either a guide kind of gamer, or you're not. I am, and most gamers that are, aren't actually using them for guides per-sae, more like reading material and quick-referencing.

Yeah im the same as you with games like this but i also get them cause i collect them as well.
Hassassin  +   1068d ago
fuuuuuuuuu
WolfLeBlack  +   1068d ago
Let me do the maths here: at 650 pages that's just about enough to be able to use the freaking thing to beat whales to death!

That's one epic guide, especially when you consider that the Game of the Year edition of the Oblivion guide wieghs in at 496 pages!
wita  +   1068d ago
You wouldn't be able to get any of the pictures on Kindle, even if it was available for the device.
JoeCoolxD  +   1068d ago
650 pages.. That's about as long as my list of reasons why Skyrim is better than any game essay. Chapter 1, because it's SKYRIM BABY!!
SITH  +   1068d ago
This going to be such a great game.
NoobJobz  +   1067d ago
Only $16 for 650 pages? Sounds like a deal considering I've seen $30 150 page guides.

Is there an iBook or Kindle version of this? There's no way I'm keeping a giant ass strategy guide like that around. No room.

If not, thats fine, I'll just wiki everything and save a ton of money.
