I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

So, the system upgrade for Skyrim is coming up.

I assume they'll be releasing a players guide for it.

Is it safe to assume that the guide will be compatible with the old game?

Wow... forgot I even made this.

SO.... how tricky IS the build system in the game to figure out?  I watched a few tutorials on fudge muppet and I cannot for the life of me understand what they talkin-bout.

The Skyrim vids aren't like the Fallout vids, with all the stats and the perks named at the bottom.

The build system is pretty simple, really. All the different skills have an associated skill tree. You can buy perks on those tree's if your skill meets the pre-requisite level AND you've purchased the perk before it. So you can choose from any tree so long as you don't mind starting at the bottom every time. Generally speaking, the higher the perk on the tree, the better the perk is, but it also corresponds to a higher level in the skill.

 

Folks usually build as they will, and take a few basic perks from a lot of the trees. I usually take the first perk in lockpicking, and healing magic, and specialise in a weapon skill, forging and enchanting.

The main problem I have with skill trees is that I'll start a game wanting to be an mage-warrior. I wind up being a sneaking type who stabs people in the back. Oh...well...yeah, except I need some ranged attacks. So I guess stealth archer is the way to go. Too bad I already spent all those perks on restoration magic and smithing!

It took me a couple times to figure out, but it seems like maxing out skill trees for Sneaking and Archery are the way to go. Maybe pop a few points in restoration magic. Never know when you'll run out of potions.

And actually, speech isn't totally useless. You can invest in stores so they can give you more money and you can sell any type of thing at any shop...like sell potions to the smith. Very usefull.
...
...
Except by the time you can do that, you're probably not hurting for money really.

Yeah, hug Speech. Just do Sneaking and Archery. You'll be alright!

I absolutely love being able to defeat boss-type characters with maybe 4-5 hits tops...all before they even know I'm there.

I also wish I had a dime for every time this happened:

What's that sound? Something's right behind me! Oh crap! A draugr got the drop on me. Oh...wait! My status indicator says I'm still hidden. But...he brushed right up against me...and his dead partner is right next to him...and he's looking right...at...me! But he doesn't see me? Well, okay then. Let's get out Auriel's Bow, recharge it for extra measure, draw back the string aaaaand...*THUNK*! Most satisfying sound...ever!

 

I can kill giants and maybe even one or even two (if I'm lucky) of it's mammoth friends before any of them know I'm there. 

 

I know there's a whole meme and air of derision about stealth archers...but people wouldn't do it if it wasn't so damn affective!

Well.... I started it.

I took a nap last night 'cuz some telemarketer woke me up at 2pm, and instead of sleeping 3 hours.... slept for 6.  X(  So, I DLed everything, then started up.

Decided to try something simple... mentally dug-out an old Star Wars OC and went from there.  Got overencumbered already thanks to the clothes/pots.  While I'm sure there's nothing on-par with a Mandaloran, a general 'barbarian' or something should be good.

PS: ah snuck past a BAER!!!

I went melee. It gave me some trouble on tougher enemies like dragons with their stupid one-hit kill move, but I still did decently. Next time I think I'm gonna mix melee and ranged.

 

Also, DO NOT GO FULL MAGE. Oh, they're good at mid-levels, but at lower and higher levels? Pfft. You're better off investing your levels in health (obviously) and stamina (so you can move around quicker and use more powerful physical moves) than magicka, which means most of the high MP offensive spells are going to drain a big chunk out of your low magicka bar and you're left defenseless unless you have a melee or ranged weapon. They also don't scale, meaning the higher levels you get, even the more powerful spells won't do as much damage. The only forms of magic worth using are restoration (again, you never know when you'll run out of health potions) and enchanting and the latter isn't really "magic" in the way conjuration or destruction are. It makes your weapons and armor more powerful, which you absolutely need to do if you want to survive at higher or even mid-levels. If you are crazy enough to go full mage or want to impose a challenge on yourself, you should focus on conjuration more than any others to summon things to do the fighting for you, since, again, you'll be basically useless by yourself.

 

In Skyrim, you're better off as a melee fighter with good Enchanting and Restoration skills than a pure mage, and you're better off being a sneaky ranged rogue with good Enchanting and Restoration skills than a melee fighter or a mage. Also, as useful as dabbling in Alteration for temporary armor buffs or Illusion for temporary stealth buffs sounds, it's not worth it since the spells from those that are actually good only come at high levels.

 

TL;DR: Mages in Skyrim suck.

Mages suck in skyrim.

 

Caveat: unless you mod the game. I get why you wouldn't want to the first few times around, but there are plenty of mods out there which iron out the kinks to magic, add new content, and generally make it more feasible archtype than the vanilla game.
