I freeze outside of Riften by the lake, by the lake down by Falkreath, and between Markarth and Solitude. It's not an issue with the disc since I installed on release day, and I've tried clearing my cache. I don't want to make a new character, either, because I like to do everything on one and this guy's level 60-something.

I thought they said that the patch would fix performance issues. : / Should I try loading a previous save?

Try uninstalling the game and reinstalling it. I also think some of the updates are so large that you have to removed them yourself, so try removing them and reinstalling them as well. Deleting old saves can also help.

reinstalling the game and redownloading the patch didn't help. I'm scared of deleting old saves, I might need them is this doesn't get fixed. do you think loading an older save could help?
Mikulekee - help. D:

trying out older saves, I fast traveled to Markarth so I could walk to Solitude and see if it freezes. when I arrived from my fast travel a ton of enemies (mammoth, giant,snowy sabercats, snow bears, frostbite spiders, a bandit marauder, and a dremora) spawned on me and attacked.

freaky stuff. any idea just wtf's going on with my game?

it's just a dynamic sig. the pictures of Korra are set to cycle through gameFOX, and I change only a small portion of it to fit my post.
Mikulekee - refreshing that someone noticed the dynamic sig, really

Check the file size of your most recent save, if it's over ~18 mb, you'll have to start a new character.
