In all honesty, though, I still feel that female faces look a bit underwhelming, especially compared to the amazing ones modders managed to achieve in Oblivion. But it’s not like the modding community won’t have a field day (year? decade?) with Skyrim as well.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
