Too bad you'll miss out on the Skyrim Online for PC. Thanks to the steam workshop, if it gets enough up votes(which it will) it'll be made into official DLC.

For PC only.

It would appear that you have not read the news. It's going to be more of a Co-Op and Roleplay mod, supposedly.

Finishers are fucking amazing. Especially where dragons are involved.

So I'm dicking around in Morthal, and all of the sudden a freaking dragon comes out of nowhere and starts attacking the town. The townspeople are all fighting it, and I decided to try FUS-ing it for some unknown reason. Unfortunately, I managed to hit a guy that was apparently right up in the dragon's face, so as soon as the dragon was dead, the whole town started coming after me. At this point I was like "WTF," and had to run the hell away just to get them off of me. But apparently mud crabs like to ambush you while a crazed man is coming at you with a sword, so I almost died. I managed to find a guard so I could pay off my bounty, though.

Afterwards, when I'm trying to do this quest in Morthal (again) involving a dead girl and a vampire, I break into some guy's house. Of course, he happens to be standing right in front of the door, and now wants to kill me. So I run, yet again, and for some reason everyone else (INCLUDING THE GUARDS) is afraid of him, and runs away. So there's nothing I can do at this point, so I fight back and kill him. But that just makes things worse, and now the whole town wants me dead again. Te guards won't even let me pay off my bounty. So I make the decision to screw it and run in the cellar to try to finish the quest, but I get trapped in there. And by trapped, I mean the only way out is a narrow staircase with two guards with shields blocking it. So after a bit, I kill one of the guards, but then another one appears, and this time they follow me into the cellar. I am now 100% boned.

So, I had to load my last save which was 2 LEVELS AGO HNNNNGG. I suck at this game.

The game auto saves when you enter and leave buildings but you needed an older version to get out of trouble.
So... always make a full save after doing something important.
Make an F5 quick save after clearing a room or before starting a new area. A new F5 overwrites the old one.

I have over 500 saves :D

DUR WERE IS DE F5 BUTTEN ON PS3. But yeah, no quick saves for PS3, so I have to spend 30 seconds just to save.

See, I just ignored that guy because he didn't deal that much damage. Just walked right in, grabbed the journal, and walked back out.

Autosaves on the Xbox when you hit the "b" menu, at varied lengths of time. Useful for going "What do you mean that prisoner I freed decided to put a bounty on my head? Dammit!"

Play more roguelikes. Than you'll never forget to save. Or forget to bring potions etc, those games usually don't let you load saves once you die.

Or once you do anything at all, for that matter.

Not true. Well ok most quests are in dungeons.

There is a Companions quest that is east of Whiterun at that castle that has a bridge over the river.

Some quests happen inside castles or towers, technically these are interior locations, not dungeons, but they look the same.
