So, it's your basic NDA.

Pretty much, but there are some specifics. Now, don't hold me to this, but one of the ones (off the top of my head) was you couldn't even say how long you were playing for in a given session.

I think I found a copy of the NDA,if that's helpful!

http://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en/legal/nda

EDIT: Though I don't think they're actually going to track down your sinfest posts and go "AHA YOU SAID YOU WERE A BETA TRIAL PARTICIPANT, YOU VIOLATED THE NDA!", so I am pre-emptively saying don't worry too much about that, I think it's just a blanket "ULTIMATE SECRECY" sort of NDA.

Bah. If they thought she should follow the rules, they should have picked somebody who DIDN'T quote a ghostly ripoff artist in their application.

I think you'll be okay. I rather doubt they check these forums. And even if some MRA decides to try and be vindictive, they have no good way of proving *WHICH* elder scrolls account is yours.

Heh, thanks guys <3. In unrelated news. I'm super excited for Zelda A Link Between Worlds. I think I'm gunna use it as a personal bribe to get my apartment cleaned before my parents come up on Thanksgiving. (If I do the kitchen, I can play Zelda for twenty minutes....)

I started replaying Spirit Tracks, which is a good game but OH MY GOD the stylus movement drives me completely insane like... 15% of the time. I'm stuck in a spot that I can't figure the puzzle out because I just keep accidentally walking too far and falling into lava.

Have you ever thought about how odd it is that your little avatar/character/whatever will do this? Imagine the game world from their perspective, and they just walk into things that will kill them. I want NPCs that will run up and grab you just as you get to the lava and then you have to spend half an hour answering questions about why you want to kill yourself before you can continue playing. Or the character should just not be willing to walk into lava. Maybe flip you the bird or something for trying to kill them.

Oh man, it would be super handy if they just refused.

I mean, I get making it difficult to do jumps and things, but literally in Spirit Tracks you just kind of... fall into lava, even when all you were trying to do was stand in a specific spot.

If you could control Link with the actual joystick or whatever it'd be easier to control -exact- placement, but you can't. You have to point at it with the stylus and hope for the best. If he's too close, he'll just assume you want him to plummet to his death -and then do it-.

Agh.

Well anyway, they seem to have learned their lesson, because in A Link Between Worlds you don't use the stylus to control movement. Huzzah.

I've been in the elder scrolls beta for a while. I'll be voluntarily opting out of it soon. Do let me know when the NDA drops.

I'm not sure they'll notify me at all but I'll keep an eye out.

So... Is it okay to ask if it's fun without asking for specifics?
