I want to see first if SSE will be offered for a discount on Steam.


I'd keep an eye on GOG, too. It's RPG month in their store.

GOG doesn't have Skyrim because Skyrim requires Steam. sad.gif

Skyrim SE is now available on GOG!!

I wonder if that means it's gone Steam-free. As in, no Steam overlay, no Steam involvement, no Steam monitoring. Would be nice.

The entry lists it as DRM free, so it should be able to start without the launcher. I have the older Bethesda games and Stardew Valley through GOG and you can just launch them right from the desktop icon. Or from your mod manager. Never have to open the launcher after installs, and you can straight up deny updates.

Yes, they were making it a point to say that you can disable updates. I was rather wondering whether Steam would be still running in the background, one way or the other, since even the first edition of Skyrim was already using Steam. I had bought a CD-ROM only to discover that it didn't actually contained the game - it only contained a small Steam installer that then forced me to download everything. Which was kind if beside the point of having a CD-ROM so that you would not have to download! mad.gif

Although admittedly for me this discussion is purely academic since my PC cannot even start to run Skyrim SE. tongue.gif

I would love it if he did try Skyrim, but chances are he won't.


Off-topic, but Kane, what is it about Stardew Valley that you enjoy? I notice it's really got a lot of mods over at Nexus. It's not far behind Skyrim matter of fact.

It's a nice relaxing game with a touch of action. The characters are engaging and the game is well written, and mods make it even better. It's reminiscent of older games too, in that it doesn't really hold your hand. You kinda just got to figure it out or look stuff up on the wiki.

Well, as you guys know I have my gaming routines pretty cemented by now and another open world game is not on the table. I don't even play Arena or Morrowind anymore as I'm happy enough with Oblivion and Fallout 3 and still wanna focus on them.



But good on Skyrim for going Steam-free! I always support that! biggrin.gif

I'm ... not going to say another word. whistling.gif But yes, we did try. bigsmile.gif

At least Buffy went to Skyrim. Even though she didn't stay there so long, it really made ma happy when she showed up there one day. Probably talked your ear off via messaging Acadian, but it's only because I wanted to hear yours (and Buffy's) thoughts and perceptions. It's like when a longtime friend watches a movie you love, you want to hear what they think. Hug_emoticon.gif

A heads up to folks thinking of getting the Gog version of Skyrim SE, is that you will have issues with some SKSE-based mods. Here are the particulars. The short answer is that SKSE mods that have a .dll file will not work on the Gog version of the game. However SkyUI is not one of those, so it works with the Gog version. It really is a very small proportion of mods. But you might look into that before you buy.

It does appear that authors are updating their SKSE mods to be compatible however. Which ones and how soon, if at all, is naturally going to vary of course.
