The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Preview

After going through the same one-hour demonstration of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as other people did during PAX Prime, the editors at DualShockers have returned to tell us all about their experience. A few paragraphs to get you started:
I had three goals during this demo: find a dragon, find a giant, and kill everything. So in my journey to do the first two, the third option became easier the further along I went. It wasn't long before I started getting the hang of quick-equipping different spells and weapons, and soon I was sniping with my bow then quickly switching to fire and a dagger to finish off anybody foolish enough to get near me. After I left the mine deciding my chances of finding a dragon down there were slim to none, I eventually came across a windmill where I achieved my second goal, for in the distance a group of warriors were fighting a giant.

Giddy with excitement I immediately jumped into the fray and threw everything I had at the behemoth. I have to admit that even though I was a very low level, even with the NPC fighters helping me it took a lot to bring this towering warrior down. But seeing him topple to the ground was definitely worth it. The fighters thanked me and offered me a side-quest to join their ranks but my time was limited, so to the sword they went.

The few people left in town who hadn't fled or died seemed to not notice what I had done outside, as I was able to purchase a horse from a man at the stable. I didn't have enough money though, so I decided to jump on a cart nearby offering to take me to a destination of my choosing. I randomly chose a name from the list, and after a short loading screen found myself in a snowy town which turned out to be quite far away from where I initially was. I wandered around, and started seeing very strange things.
