    Ordered the Elder Scrolls offical guide along with my collectors edition from GAME (theres no chance im gonna complete that beast without a little help lol) yet my game has been dispatched yet there is no word regarding the guide. Theres not much point the guide turning up like 2 weeks later, after i've completed half the game! Anyone got similar problems?

    I really can't believe the guide could be that important :rolleyes:

    This type of game in my opinion, is much better when you come upon things by accident and playing through the game, without any prior knowledge.

    I could understand your concerns if the guide turned up, but the game was delayed ;)

    cheers

    Are these the Prima guides

    I remember being given one for Champ Man a few years back and found it to be a waste of time

    It (and the others I have seen) just seemed like an extension of the manual along with pictures and basic info that you can get with a Google search

    IMHO guides spoil games like this. I appreciate though tat some do find them useful, but if your stuck in a section (or want to find out more) forums are the best bet to get guidance without buying full on guides. still , as I said some people like them.

    Some people buy the guides and use them to produce their own 100% complete player guides.

    Some people are like that.

    The wife bought me a Halo2 guide once - even though I'd already finished the game :D

    Very nice coffee table book though, so I was quite chuffed - it was definately one of those 'it's the thought that counts' pressies :smashin:

    I dont use the guides for the main storyline, I just usually pick them up to help me along with the more obtuse sections of the game (such as in FFX)
