Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Leveling Guide

In order to use this guide to quickly level your Skyrim skills you will need understand a few basic game mechanics first. Killing things and completing quests does not give you experience like a typical RPG would. Instead, gaining experience is the result of leveling up your skills. The amount of experience you need to level up increases the higher in level you are, meaning at level 1 let us pretend you need 100 XP to get to level 2. You might then need 120 XP to get to level 3, etc. Also, the higher your skill is, the more XP you get when you level it up, meaning that raising Archery from level 1 to 2 might grant you 50 XP, but leveling Archery from level 2 to 3 might give you 100 XP.

Now, the typical way you increase your skill level in something is by using the related skill. For example, to increase your Archery level you need to hit enemies with arrows, to level Sneak skill you need to successfully sneak by an NPC without them detecting you, to level Lockpicking you need to work on picking locks, etc. There is an alternative though.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Glitches and Exploits

Please note, this guide has been replaced by a more in-depth version which can be found here: http://clevermusings.net/2011/11/elder-scrolls-skyrim-exploit-guide/

Everyone seems to be talking about the release of Skyrim today and I am sure most people are eager to dig into the massive story and enthralling gameplay. But who among you are looking for the inevitable glitches and exploits that will make the game a tad easier and possibly much more fun to play? Yes I thought so. There are two big exploits that have been discovered so far. Let us take a look (spoilers ahead!).

DLC Already on the Disc

If you like to keep your ear to the ground when it comes to gaming news, you have no doubt heard your fair share of controversies that seems to have a large portion of gamers up in arms. Recently with the release of Gears of War 3, one such controversy has risen to the surface again: DLC already present on game discs. It seems that no matter which gamer you ask, he or she is going to have a polarized opinion on the subject. And since individuals with opposing views on the internet tend to be incapable of making civilized arguments, I thought it might be a good idea to share my rational views on the subject.

Where Are My Game Manuals?

I recently purchased Batman: Arkham City and I am really enjoying it, but when I opened the game case I was very disappointed. Perhaps I am part of a small minority of gamers, but I always read through game manuals when I purchase a game. Not only do I read through the game manuals, but I typically do it before I even put the game disc in the tray. I think it relates back to the days of when I would go to a store with my parents, pick out a game and start reading the back of the box while we were in the store. Then, when we got to the car, I would open the game and start reading the manual cover to cover because I was too excited to play to sit still. Does anyone else feel that way anymore?

Windows Live ID Makes Me Cry

For those that are unaware, you may be asking “What’s a Windows Live ID?” Essentially, they are accounts that you can use for almost every service offered by Microsoft, including Xbox LIVE, the .NET Messenger Service, the Zune Marketplace, the Microsoft Developer Network, and Microsoft TechNet. I would guess that most people who signed up for a Windows Live ID did so because they wanted to sign up for Xbox LIVE (like myself). Back when I signed up for Xbox LIVE though, it was called a .NET Passport instead, so if that rings any bells for you, know that it is the same thing.

I suppose I should be fair and say the idea behind Windows Live IDs is not bad. In today’s day and age it can be difficult to keep track of the pile of usernames and passwords the average internet-savvy person will acquire. Trying to condense them into one account for any Microsoft related service makes it easier on the user, and that is always a good thing. The problem with the Windows Live ID system is the way it has been mismanaged by Microsoft.
