The lights are on
Achievement leaks? Those happen all the time. Screenshot leaks? Yep, we get those. Sometimes even videos. But leaks of a game's manual? That's reserved solely for games that fans are going crazy waiting for. Case in point: Skyrim.
Someone has posted an image gallery containing pictures of the inside and outside of a supposed leaked copy of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's game manual. We were sent a link to this gallery as a news tip (thanks, Chase!), so we're not really sure where it originated from, but the pictures definitely seem real and believable. Still, consider it rumor for the time being.
The text of manual contains everything from a description of how to cook to some lore from in-game texts. If you're obsessed enough to be poring over a game's manual prior to release, then this is all probably stuff you already know, but maybe it will help cool your burning desire for a night at least.
My only question: Does the person who posted these pictures have a copy of the actual game? And if so, how do we track him or her down to steal it post-haste?
Generally I only read a manual on my way home from the store.... If I'm not driving myself. But for Skyrim I will make an exception.
I only skim through manuals and use them as reference materials. I am also curious as to if this person has the game or just the manual...
I am patient enough to wait for the games release. I may get the official manual when the game itself comes out. I don't follow leaks or rumors as gospel unless it's confirmed by developers. Not trying to sound biased but I'm excited for the game.
only a month!
I have been debating on whether to get this game or not. I probably will just to see how it is. The last two games leveling system has just made me furious... If you do not try and level in a certain way to maximize your attribute point allocations you quickly are overpowered and that just frustrates me. I have seen a few friends who like that and sit with a piece of paper marking down every time that they get a skill and what governing attribute it affects... I just can't do it that way tho. But irregardless I am getting it... Just keeping my fingers crossed that maybe the level system will be a bit more forgiving.
This should hold me over for a week.
seems Lock Picking works like Fallout now, i'm not to sure how i feel about this. at least i don't have to learn anything new.
Why yes, in fact I am that desperate.
My desperation is above that level, in fact.
I will devour every juicy morsel of leaked info on this game you've got.
If you look at some of the pictures on imgur, you can see the comic section of the newspaper at the bottom of the pictures. Thought I'd just point out some useless information.
While I am excited enough to flip through that gallery, I'm actually -too- excited to really delve into it. Reading the manual is one of my favorite parts of game purchases, so I'm not going to spoil it.
This was a nice find. I enjoyed reading through it. I would say it seems to be the legit manual.
Yes good sir. Yes i am.
I shall track him down and steal it before anyone else. Bwahaha!
i. just.... CAME!
This is taking way too long haha
No. I don't even read the manual for most of those types of games (action RPGs) unless I desperately don't know how to do something and rely on the ingame tutorial and my personal experience to get a feel for the game anyway.
