Today Bethsoft announced on their website the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition. On June 4th (or June 7th for European territoriesSkyrim Legendary Edition), this new Skyrim release will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 as well as PC. This release will have the most recent up to date game version included (including the 1.9 title update) as well as all three DLC packs: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.

This may be an enticing deal to the few who have not bought Skyrim yet. The inclusion of the DLC really makes it worth buying since to buy all the DLC is about $45 and that doesn’t include the game itself. Most people like myself though, have already stood in line at midnight and bought the game as well as the DLC as it was coming out. Personally, I think this release will get those last few resisting people to cave and finally purchase Skyrim. It may also be another tactic to keep the interest of the game alive and ever strong.  I just hope there is not a resurgence of arrow to the knee jokes.

  • I wonder if all the PS3 problems have been ironed out.

    • nope, it crashes from time to time still with some screen tearing.
      other then that is fixed, like quest bugs.

      I played it through recently and had maybe two crashes over the course of say 80 hours. Compare that to Fallout New Vegas, probably 10 crashes in 80 hours in my latest play through. I’m not saying it’s perfect obviously, but it’s pretty much playable without many major issues considering the size of the game and all that can be done.

    • Bethseda have proven themselves to be very crappy developers. I’ll buy this sometime next yr when the price drops in the $20-$25 range.

    • Even when these crashes and/ or bug occur, i am still all for Bethesda, they, out of all companies, actually listen to their fans and the way they use DLC is the correct way.

    • Call me crazy but the word “crashes” shouldn’t be uttered in any game i’m playing. The only game that’s giving some issues recently is Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate with online play. It occasionally freezes or knocks me off the server but it seems to be improving.

    • Maybe its more crashes for me because i still use my 40 gig phat PS3 :p

    “I think this release will get those last few resisting people to cave and finally purchase Skyrim.” Not this guy, and from what I can tell, quite a few others. The conception that Skyrim as being a good, let alone great, game is FAR from Universal. Personally I think while some aspects of it are impressive on the whole the game is a bit of an embarrassment.

      You can deny it all you want, but its highly acclaimed for a reason. Skyrim has its faults, but it also does more and is more than pretty much any other game out there. I can accept that its not for everyone, but to call it an embarrassment only makes you look like a hater and a fool.

      The game does everything a game should. It’s fun to play. Also it is very engaging and expansive. I am not going to say it is the greatest game ever but I do think most people would enjoy it, To each their own of course.

    • the_sidewinder

      agree to disagree. While the expansive landscapes and amount of sidequesting are grand the combat was worse than poor, there were tons of glitches and hiccups even in the 360 and PC versions, which had nothing on the almost-had-no-business-being-released PS3 version and to top it all off what a dozen voice actors. IMO the game was rushed to market.

    • smacd

      Its also the most stable release, even on day one, of most any Bethesda game. It sounds like you’ve never actually played one of their games before. Sure there are technical issues, but there is bound to be in a sandbox game with as much content as Elder Scrolls games have. But, haters gonna hate. Fact of the matter is, most people who actually played the game loved it, despite the technical issues. And if you don’t like the game, go play something else rather than whine about it on the internets? Seriously, go back to playing call of duty, brah.

    • Ryan_oprainfall

      These games that Bethesda make are incredibly large and immersive. It’s one of the reasons that despite the glitches, I love the games and I deal with it. I would imagine though if these games really weren’t my thing, I’d have very little patience for glitches. People like different things, that is what it comes down to. The Fallout Series and Elder Scroll Series are some of my very favorite games. There are plenty of other games out there though that others love that I will not touch.

    • the_sidewinder

      I love Xenoblade Chron. And it’s very existence rather adds to my point. Let’s forget about glitches here for a second, the melee combat in Skyrim essentially amounted to “walk forward swinging wildly, walk backwards, walk forward swinging wildly”. When it comes down to it the fighting is one of the games primary aspects and it was horrid. Therefore I don’t see how there can be a case made for it being a classic, etc. when one of the games core mechanics is so utterly terrible. The glitches etc. are just gravy.

      posted twice so you could read it, mostly because of your wrongheaded and arrogant and horribly unoriginal ) CoD comment. A game I have NEVER played BTW.

      Also, GFY you conceited ass.

    • I absolutely love this game. Reminiscent of Bioshock Infinite, this game wants you to explore/get lost in its enticing universe. If you try to just simply run through Skyrim, or any Bethesda Software game, you’re not gonna enjoy it. Playing a game just to beat it, or with any kind of pessimistic mindset for that matter, almost seems contradicting…

    • the_sidewinder

      I don’t see what the problem with saying : “I don’t like this game, here are the laws”. But, y’know, fuck my opinion since it’s not popular, right?
