Finished up around 180 hrs. No more non-radiant quests. A few observations about my 1st playthrough-
Lydia died early, I didn't notice, and Breezehome was sooo depressing afterward. Lydia! Come home! That gem perk you get at the end of the Thieves questline was ridiculous. I had like 400 lbs of gems after a handful of dungeons. Next time going to Riften early to get filthy rich. Markarth was gorgeous. Really, that place should have been the hub, not the edge. Blackreach was the greatest dungeon. Ever. Props to Beth. After 180 hrs I'm guessing I dealt with 40 hrs of loading screens. Way to much. Ulfric was a badazz, but him and those Nords sound way too much like Arnold Shwartzenager. Hard to get over. Throat-ripping is awesome. Skyrim was so detailed and scenic. The river valleys, mountains, even the northern lights. Beth made this the best looking game ever. I wish there was more depth however, but you can't have everything.
1) Tim 'The Tool man' Taylor... I suppose we've got a youngin in here. 2) @nightcola.... dude, who're you so upset you can't kill? Only one that even remotely bugs me is Babette 3) Frisbee... I'm on a PS3, but I guarantee there's something else going on there. How many Dwemer museum keys are you rockin, and more importantly turn off autosaves.
Tha'ts all I have to say that's important.
I completely agree though, that in this particular case Beth did an amazing job. The little things really do outweigh some of the larger issues the game has, and it counts.
I can't STAND Blackreach though. = D
Spent 8 1/2 hours in there the first (and only) time I bothered to go. I'll be 'in the mood' though, the next time, so maybe I'll like it more.
