Ya, one of the several generic phrases the NPC's say to you is "I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee"

Don't they have knee armor in that game?  I mean, you'd think a knee armorer would make a fortune there.

I'm not sure what else they expected when every character starts out with a bow and a quiver full of +5 Knee-Seeking Arrows.  

Or maybe this is how the in-game protection racket works: "Where's our money, Tony?  You don't got it?  That's a shame.  Guido, take him out back and put an arrow in his knee."

Taking a knee to the groin is painful, I can't imagine taking a knee to the groin that has an arrow sticking out of it.

This game is annoying the hell out of me. Mostly because the UI sucks. Is it really impossible to see your mapped spells/weapons on the HUD? You have to memorize the key-mapping ?(which changes with every new spell/potion acquired, obviously). Plus, when you hit a mapped key it doesn't launch a spell, but sends it to a hand, which you then have to click again to launch the spell? Really? And every time you want to switch anything you have to completely break immersion by bringing up contextual or inventory menus?
Not to mention that the entire game seems utterly formulaic.
Such a let-down to play an RPG like this after Witcher 2.

Wow and I though the Witcher 2 UI was already annoying as hell. I already get a RTS mirco management fatigue just be looking at it.

Resurrecting an old topic.

What's the most painless way to play Skyrim on a Mac these days? I play it occasionally via BootCamp on 10.8.2 atm, which is less than ideal (rebooting, endless Windows updates etc). Has anyone had success with the various wrappers out there?
