Yeah theres also a girl in one of the bars. I forgot if it's riverwood or whiterun, but she challenges you to a fist fight. If you win she becomes your friend and will follow you if asked. it's cool cause you can have them hold items too. It's like Fawkes from Fallout 3 all over again.

I've run into a few mercs and such myself, as well as had the offer from Sven. (Wait, was Sven the guy who wanted you to give the girl the bogus letter and lie about it? I can't remember, but I told the truth, so maybe he wasn't the guy, whatever Iunno.) I'm just wondering if you can leave them in like, a house or something without them leaving if you run off like the Adoring Fan. That's part of why I was the only one that liked the Fan was that I could leave him anywhere, (as long as it was safe, that is,) without him ever leaving that spot unless I ask him to follow me again.

Leaving him at Rosethorn Hall along with the maid made the place feel a bit more lively, I'm hoping I can mimic that in Skyrim eventually, haha.

On my way to Whiterun some guard just pulled me up and was going to arrest me. I was conflicted on which option to pick, and I guess I took too long because he let me go.

FFFFFFFFFFU happened again. I should stop talking to guards.
Oh, you can just pay your bounty off. That's cool.

So has anyone been attacked by hired thugs yet? I stole some stuff from Dragonsreach, (though didn't get caught,) and after leaving Riften Stables three thugs with Orc weapons started mauling me. They were diiiiicks. Worse than anything I've had to fight yet. I love that that stuff happens though. Reminds me of the Tribunal expansion in Morrowind when you get attacked in your sleep. :D

*EDIT*
Woohoo, talk about lucky! I was visiting Riften just for the hell of it but it turns out I've found the thieves guild~

Mmmmmpppppppppppppppffffftttttdddfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff-----

Anybody know a good gameplay video of it? I seriously have no great deal of an idea how any of these games are, other then the world is open, and you run, and do shit, and ect.

Guys, forgive me for looking up a few things on the wiki, but...
Spoiler! :
WEREWOLVES ARE BACK!
That's it, no more "If I start a second character," I am totally making a Werewolf Dunmer one of these days.

The problem is a gameplay video won't show you enough of this game, really. I still say your best bet is trying out Morrowind or Oblivion, but... Hmm... I can try finding some gameplay, but I just don't know if a video can really do it justice. Part of the appeal is the atmosphere, freedom and roleplaying aspects, and those are things you just can't feel in a video.

*EDIT*
This vid covers a little over 20 minutes of gameplay from the start of the game. If you want you can skip forward every now and then to avoid spoiling too much of the intro.



*EDITEDIT*
Haha, I've been so hooked that I forgot to add this to my Backloggery until now. Sorry, epic gun quote, your time was short but DOA as soon as I remembered I have yet another way to show that I'm playing Skyrim instead of doing productive things.

Yeah, this looks amazing and looks a lot better then Morrowind...

GODDAMN I-

I have three questions though, can the camera stay over the shoulder (not centre of screen third-person, I mean character on left of screen over the shoulder third-person) throughout the entire game? Is first person even available in combat? (can't tell in the video, they used third person in all the fights)

DOES STAMINA FORCE YOUR CHARACTER TO GO ANNOYINGLY SLOW LIKE IT WAS IN MORROWIND? (even though the normal speed in Skyrim seems pretty damn fine to me, actually.)

1: Nope, when you draw your weapons it automatically centers, but you can zoom the camera in/out in third person if that helps. Hell, you could zoom it out so much that it looks like an oldschool Neverwinter-esque WRPG or something, haha. (Though that wouldn't work terribly well with the targeting ridicule and all, but you get the idea.)
2: Yes, you can do anything in either first or third person. You can play the entire game using only one of the two if you'd like. I actually switch it up myself. Running around, exploring, talking to people, and most fights I like third person, and when I need to be more precise with what I'm doing or need a better view without my character in the way, I shift to first person. You can switch it with a click of the right analog stick, so it's pretty convenient.
3: The Stamina bar's only real purposes are for Sprinting and Heavy attacks, (and maybe blocking, I'm not sure since I've yet to use a shield,) jumping, regular movement, regular attacking and stuff like that have no affect on your stamina.

Honestly I'm sure you'll enjoy it. It's the most accessible and amazing TES yet. They've ditched obnoxious things like equipment durability and enemy scaling and simplified speechcraft/shopping and character creation and such but without dumbing things down enough to complain about. Bethesda outdid themselves with this game.

Gah, so many edits. I'm terrible at explaining things.

I'm being too nice to people. But I love how I can strip people after I kill them.

Also I killed that old bitch in the orphanage in Riften.

DIDN'T THINK I'D DO IT DID YA YOU OLD BITCH! WELL WHO IS LAUGHIN NOW?! HUH?! ME! YEAH! I ELECTROCUTED YOUR GROUCHY ASS!

Then I killed the helper chick and got a letter with a hand print on it after I sprung my ass from jail.

I like dragging their bodies into awkward positions after killing them.
