Finally, after almost 5 years we get a TES 5 announcement. And in Skyrim, home of the Nords!

Bone up on the region if you're not up on the lore: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Skyrim

I'm already calling it, this is my GOTY 2k11. I don't need anything else.

Ok First Impressions. I thought I would hate the streamlineness of the game, but it is actually pretty good and intuitive.

Let's see I'm playing the game on expert and as a mage. The magic system is probably the biggest improvement. Very fun to cast spell as it is quick and responsive. However, melee combat feels the same as previous installments. Still floaty and like swinging at air. They did add Fallout 3 deathblows to melee. But melee combat is still a weak point in this series it seems. Everything else is top notch though so far. Lots of bugs and random crashes though. . . .

UI looks nice, but is built for a controller. It is very simplistic. There are some weird things that happen when you try to interact with the UI using a mouse. For example, the hover box when you select an item seems to be inconsistent (I've had it exit the menu or I accidentally bought something when I wanted to select an items category to sell). I don't understand how in this day and age you forget how to make something work properly with mouse and keyboard, especially since this series PC origins. Sign of the times I guess. Also, there needs to be a way to organize the favorites menu. It's quite clunky, especially when you want a certain spell in one hand and another spell in the other hand. It's even a hassle when you need to equip a shield but keep a certain spell when going from dual wield spells. I understand that you can just pause the action by pulling up the menu, but I have a keyboard with hotkey ability. I don't want to pause the action.

Everything else you would expect from an Elder Scrolls game is here and spectacular. Going to be spending the whole weekend on this game. I hope Bethesda fixes some of this stuff in a patch soon.
