Anybody playing it via bootcamp? How it looking. I want this game sooo bad but I don't have a copy of windows for my Mac.
I'm seriously debating buying it just so I can play it.
My bro has a 360 but he is gonna be hogging it.

That's nice! I'm going to check it out. I hope it's not going to be a memory hogger that will require a massive amount of RAM, graphics card memory, and CPU.

By the way, Boot camp ftw!

EDIT: Wow! this game has a 9.5 rating on IGN. That's one of the highest I've ever seen.

I am about to play Battlefield 3 on my MacBook Pro, fingers-crossed and hoping that it will run smoothly because it didn't on my Vaio. If it does run smoothly, I'm pretty sure I can handle Skyrim. Too bad my Xbox 360 got RROD or I'd have been playing all the latest games now. I also really want to play Batman: Arkham City and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Mac Pro. Runnin OK, though I can't play it on ultra settings. High works fine for the most part. Framerate drops in big areas some, but I'm hoping the updated video driver I just installed will help a bit.

i5 2.44GHz, 4GB of RAM, and GeForce 330M. The game, as I hoped, is running smoothly, although on a resolution lower than my notebook's native one. That's fine by me, though. The only problem is that my mouse is, I guess, starting to die on me or something because it is lagging like heck! I don't mean the Touch Pad (which I cannot play using) but my Microsoft mouse. That sucks.

Dunmer. I like playing stealthy with a bit of archery, blades, and destruction thrown in. They do that stuff pretty well, and I figured the fire resistance would come in handy fighting dragons.

I witnessed a pretty funny bug earlier today. I was walking through mountains bordering a plain with Giants and Mastodons roaming around, and I noticed two mastodons spawn hundreds of feet in the air, fall down to the ground, graze for a second, then keel over and die. Got a good chuckle out of that.

Yeah, I guess so. My specifications fully meet the minimum and meet all the recommended requirements with the exception of the video card. I think the GeForce GT330M is like a 512MB one, whereas most games nowadays recommend 700MB+.

That's the best RPG I've ever seen.
Time to trade in some old games in and sit on my butt for the winter.

It's dangerous. I started playing around noon, and before I knew it, it was 10pm.

Ah man! I don't like such games. Back then when I got my older Xbox 360 with Batman Arkham Asylum, I honestly spent at least 9 - 10 hours per day in order to finish the campaign, then later on went on missions to increase the gameplay percentage, unlock new things, etc.

I've got to say, though, you kind of start to miss it when you're completely done with it.

The iPhone got me hooked on RPG's, they are addicting, never played one like that on console, assassin creed 2 is still sealed.
