Classic, where did your post go, now you're making me look insane.

Also, Zed, the right click and left click being backwards also bothers me significantly.

The favorites menu wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't scrolly. There's no reason not to have that thing take more horizontal space. Hell, give spells and equipment their own columns at least.

The thing with the favorite menu being scrolly is that it's a console menu. Same reason I can't just drag the map to move around it, but I have to use arrows keys and such.

I deleted it after I read the first sentence of your response and realized I'd done something profoundly stupid and promptly fled the scene of the crime hoping that no one noticed.

The profoundly stupid thing was confusing the favorites menu for the specialization weapons perks.

EDIT:
I guess I didn't say it outright there, but I'm sorry for deleting a post that was referenced in a following post. I honestly did not notice I was referenced by name.

Hey!

I found M'aiq the Liar, just outside of Riverwood!

So I was running around turning iron to gold, you know,mage business as usual and a kid asks me to turn him invisible. I had to disappoint since all I know are parlor tricks.

I stumbled on a nest of vampires. I could take out the fledglings with a single double-fisted firebolt, and the full vampires took a bit of more than that, but I was feeling pretty confident anyway. And then I ran into the local master vampire, who had a half-dozen regular vampires with him.

I died a lot to that guy.

After the nth reload, I began to look in my inventory for something that could help. I remembered that 500 gp Scroll of Undead's Bane (or whatever it was called) I found in my first dungeon. Vampires didn't count as undead in Oblivion... but I had to try. I figured it might hurt them enough that I could finish off a few of them with fire spells before they healed back up by absorbing my health, and then maybe I'd have a shot at dueling the master.

I panicked for a moment as the scroll had several seconds' casting time, during which my health dropped dangerously low and the master vampire somehow cast a spell that unequipped my clothes. Then a blue wave of energy burst forth, instantly vaporizing all the regular vampires into smoking dust piles, and reducing the master to a whimpering lump with a sliver of health. "Mercy!", he cried.

Magic is awesome.

Don't you always have this problem with every Bethesda game? It might be genetic.

Zenimax seems to be devouring Skyrim footage on YouTube, so this stuff might be gone soon.

preeeeetty sure it's not that unusual to have problems with a bethesda title at release and in fact people were joking about it in this very thread naught but one page hence?
