And we also know review copies went out over a week ago. Proof from a certain contributor to these boards: http://twitter.com/#!/heymarkd/statu...70416612671488 From what I've heard, the embargo is the 10th.

I hope this game doesn't turn me into a lard-ass this Winter.

There are some spoilers there- you might want to link to it for those of us who don't want to read it.

I will be getting the PC version- hopefully it will be good and not just a port.

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

The initial release will be a console port from what I read. But a full dx11 update is supposedly also in the works much like the Crysis 2 update.

Eh. But how many of us are going to wait for the DX11 version to be released? I hate it that so many software companies are doing PC versions half-assed now.

Especially those that have franchises that started in the pc, like Bethesda. I guess they gotta go where the money is.

Now I'm worried. First BF3 was crap. Now Uncharted 3 is crap. Please don't let Skyrim continue this trend...

Some people are indicating that the textures look better if the game is not installed to the 360 HD:



Lemez means disc. Not sure how true this is...

Weird. That's gotta be some sort of bug. Absolutely no technical reason that needs to happen.

It wouldnt be a Bethesda game without launch bugs.

Does it say anywhere that installing to the hard disk included the HD textures? If that's a separate step then the test matrix to determine what's up is more complicated...

Installing any game on the 360 just dumps the entire disc. Those textures have to already be on the HDD, it's just not accessing them for some reason.

Getting really excited for the game (been lurking for awhile now).

What are some of the better pre-order/launch day deals?

I agree, I don't understand why they make PC versions at all when they could put that time to better use.

Could this be addressed in the launch day patch? Maybe they found this out after reviewers got a hold of it and will patch it along with other things.

It can absolutely be addressed in a patch, but whether it makes it on launch is another story.

But honestly thats such a bizarre bug that I wonder if there's more to it than it seems.
