    They probably remastered vanilla Skyrim while forgeting the patches ... I would not put that kind of stuff past Bethesda ...

    Probably. Putting in all the fixes from the unofficial patch was probably too much work, too.
    So they just upgraded the engine to the newest version and 64 bit executable, upscaled all the textures with a macro and that was basically it. Now that's easy money. Didn't even bother adding proper dynamic lighting and shadows. Even STALKER had shadows cast from fireplaces and dynamic light sources like flashlights. Fallout 4/Skyrim Short Bus? Nah, too hard.

    Personally I'm apparently one of the lucky few. No framerate issues (I think I saw it drop to 55 once or twice), no bugs, no crashes.

    You'd think that bethesda would've been the laughing stock of the gaming community considering how hard they fail with everything. (Dumb Down,Graphics/Engine, More Bugs, Constant fps issues, Horrible/nonexistent story etc) But nope, They still have dick riders over they're pile of festering shit. What is worse is we have a bunch of unpaid PR representatives that damage control for them. As if somehow they need to defend their honor for liking shit. Whatever.

    2016 everyone, Don't forget to pick up your mountain dew, The new Kayane album and of course dewritos. :^]

    At least older SkyUI (2.x) works with SkySE. That's inspiring. (no)

    There's too much smoke in SSE, don't you think? Endless scooma supply?

    TVRE gamers rather go play Daggerfall on a second run. Battlespire is cheap cash grab, backfired cashgrab. Or switch back to Ultima Underworld, which Battlespire so miserably tries to mock.

    I bought battlespire just for Daggerfall, then I found out I could have just purchased the original Doom.

    Never knew that was the criteria for being a 'true gamer', I guess I have to turn my badge in.

    Only real gamer around here is @Ragemage. Praise be to our saviour. May he lead us to grace and salvation.

    As to Skyrim Demastered.
    Any word on mod fuckery like there was with Fallout 4 and people stealing mods?
