I don't know why but I bought it :| it's not my favourite genre for sure but it looked nice.
Any tip for a n00b player? My very first TES and it's been a looong time since my last RPG actually... what difficulty level do you suggest? I'd like a challenge but I think I'm not very skilled on 3D fights (I'm not skilled on 3D gaming actually , my favourite stuff is usually 2D :D).
Mandatory question: gamepad or M&K? I love both so please don't be "PC gamerz mastah race". :P
Hopefully I'm not going to like it :D it looks like a terrible "real life killer" and my real life is bad enough as it is.
Only pick Master difficulty if you're prepared to jump on a rock and stand on it for a while every time you see a bear until you get some heavy weaponry. You'll have more luck charging a dragon with a dagger than fighting a bear seriously, and you'll have a hard time outrunning them :p
If you go stealth with stealth kills, always stop before attacking, because if you're holding down a movement key, it'll use a movement attack and take a few non-sneak steps before swinging, making it a non-stealth attack.
The inventory system is kind of bad with a mouse. You need to learn where to click and to hover the mouse over stuff to make it register, and sometimes the mouse just doesn't work (the inventory/dialogue gets stuck on one thing and won't move no matter how much you wiggle your mouse), but usually it's manageable. I recommend mouse and keyboard, and especially if you're going to be using a bow or long range magic. You can use the inventory with the keyboard, and if it asks a Yes/No question, Y and N buttons work so you don't have to use the mouse even then. It's only my preference, though. My brother plays it with a pad, and says that the keyboard/mouse combo is a mess.
