Aha, that's totally going to be awesome.

When I received the game for Christmas I played nothing but for almost 4 months (taking a breather now, but I'll get back to it). In that entire time I have yet to even ride a single horse.

If I remember correctly you could do this in the TES: Daggerfall way back in 1997.

This should have been in Oblivion.

It was through mods, albeit a bit clunky. So I'm assuming that the groundwork was already set by the modding community and then Bethesda was either inspired to implement it themselves or just improved on the mod itself.

Always fun to stab a fool on horseback. :)

Bethesda can be very generous with the features that most companies would charge for. While Skyrim might not have been what it should have been, you got to admire how they're not milking it at all.

Meh, the combat system in skyrim is the worst thing about the game. Don't know if mounted combat will help it any...

I personally enjoy the combat in Skyrim, but that's obviously my opinion.

Essentially, Skyrim's combat is "good enough".

Combat has never been the core of Elder Scrolls, and if what you're primarily looking for is a deep combat system with multi-hit combos, counters and air-juggling, then the series really isn't for you.

TES excels at crafting a detailed, immersive world. Fans would rather see real bugs such as broken quests get ironed out, rather than the combat get "fixed" simply to appease the action crowd.

Who cares? Your character will look like a BADASS!

Like the type of BAD ASS that stabs shit while riding a horse!


The type of BAD ASS that shocks shit while riding a horse =D!!!1!1

Tell me about it. Now you can cut air while on horseback.

TheLeapist2337d ago

Looks like Skyrim is slowly but surely being finished. We're almost there.

Isn't it sad that a game that's been released for 6 months is a game to which you're now saying, "It's getting finished"?
