GB: "We have got our hands on some beautiful new Skyrim screenshots, showing the expansive, wonderfully created locales of the game, the game world, the dragons and a few showing awesome combat scenes."
Nice Try GamingBolt, but these are about a week old...
my jaw is just fine
Not sure why you have disagrees. These screen shots aren't even that good, far from jaw dropping.
Most of the images just show the scenery off in the distance. The original Skyrim scenery looked great already looking off at something far away.. We would have a better representation of the graphics if we could see it the way we play, either 1st or 3rd person view.
Gamingbolt ALWAYS gets me with their intriguing news headlines... i should know better by now. man i hate this site, almost as much as gamersheep haha
lol, low res screenshots to show off graphics as is usual from those type of sites :s And where do people get this thought that skyrim looks so amazing? The art direction is fantastic and the distant mountains and clouds are quire nicely done but the rendering is FAR from cutting edge and everything close up is really low quality with blatent texture seams etc. I'm not complaining about Bethesda (it would be just as good a game if it had PS2 graphics imho), but the uninformed people who keep going on about its barely-up-to-AAA-par graphics and making these articles constantly. Then it's also funny that these particular snaps are meh even related to Skyrim in general lol.
I absolutely love the ES series but my stupid PS3 version is so broken I finally Craigslisted it on Saturday. Massive lag after 30 min of playing and as I desperately tried to just finish the main story, something glitched with I went to meet Alden (sp) for the final showdown. I could not get the guy in Whiterun to help me. He just kept saying when he gets back but I waited 11 times (24 hour increments) I used the damn Alden shout 1000 times and nothing. I think it's cause when I tried to kill Paaragrax (sp) I messed up and tried to kill him before talking to him. His health just went down to zero then filled up. I fast traveled 3 times away then back and I still could not get him. He just flies up then lands back on the rock. I went to reload my save and the system says I have a corrupt file. It just freezes when I go to load it. 101 hours in... DAMNIT. End rant.
:/ that's sad,bad luck I guess I played for more than 100H+ with my 2 characters and I still didn't saw a single bug
Same here dude. PS3 version isn't broken for me either. Only issue I have is texture are blurrier than 360's but that is it. Also check the forums on bethesoft often and the 360 version has just as many broken quests. Only issues some are facing is frame drops, but they are working on it.
So why are you trying to pawn it off on somebody else?
^^ my thoughts exactly
i didn't buy skyrim, i'm finishing motorstorm apocalypse, which i bought really cheap, on the psn. i spent the last nights playing it, this game is a pure marvel, graphics and speed and everything is awesome.at 5am, im forced to go to sleep. i'm in the advanced mode, it's great. incredible sense of speed, graphics, sound, in a word : spectacular people, you shouldn't skip this game, i had the first 2 motorstorm, but didn't buy apocalypse when it was released, because there was too many good games released at the same time. now that i discovered it, i can't stop playing it. it's that great. about great screenshots, here are some, from ps3 exclusives. really, xbox people, you don't realize what you've been missing ... :(
Those were some great screenshots (I have those games and they are visually impressive) but xbox also has their impressive screenshots as well.
Well-played Virus. Have a bubble.
how to embed images directly here, along the comment ? thanks for help.
Well these don't actually make my jaw drop as my game looks better than this.
thanks to some crazy tweaking, mine does too. You know a game is incredible when you stop playing just to marvel at the sights around you. I love PC games...so much...
Maybe they should show high resolution shots if there going to make peoples jaws drop.............. The game is beautiful especially with all mods, but some rubbish 800x450 resolution shots are not going to do that justice.
My jaw is still in its normal location... Im gonna go back to BF3 so i can see my jaw drop :D
My jaw remains where it is..
Im glad Im a multiconsole owner so I could enjoy this game this gen (as Im not a PC gamer). Im glad I was able to get the 360 version and not the PS3 version cause I hear it's so horrid. I haven't updated my game on LIVE either in fear of the game getting screwed up... But Im extremely surprised at how this game looks on 360... very surprised the system has it in it to run this game! But I am EXTREMELY p!ssed that PS3 gamers get the shaft on games like Skyrim... it's a great game and I feel Bethesda look like s#!t for not helping you guys out. Also how do they get away with GOTY's almost all the time they deliver a broken ass Elder Scrolls game? it truely baffles me!
The visuals are not jaw dropping their average! P.S..There's better visuals in better games this generation then skyrim by far! Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming!
I`ve never dropped my jaw before. How does that feel?
Beautiful new Skyrim screenshots will make you think it's a side scroller.
