  1. Yes, you do. I believe it is needed for unlocking the game, and there is definitely a day one patch to be downloaded.

  2. After the files are decrypted and everything, you don't need internet to run Skyrim.

  4. there was a patch released on the day skyrim came out (pre-release review copies didn't have the patch) steam activation requires an internet connection, and steam must be running (even in offline mode) There are hacks around this, the same/similar ones that are used for illegitimate versions of the game, so there are work arounds, but I think all of them are a little bit in violation of the eusa (aka a little bit illegal)

  5. To summarize everyone elses posts....

    >>>>You only need internet the first time you start the game.<<<<<<

    You need to install the initial patch and decrypt the game.

  6. You need internet access when you first install the game and a Steam account. After that, other than optional periodic patches an internet connection is not required.
