Reasons for death in Skyrim:
- The enemy was too powerful/many. 8% of the time
- Random dragon and a mammoth/bear. 2% of the time
- Lydia triggered all of the traps that you carefully avoided. 90% of the time.
Which is why you choose Uthgerd the Unbroken, instead.
In my case:
4. Forgot to buy more healing potions before starting quest. 99% of the time.
… do digital downloads not contain up-to-date versions of the software?
For example, downloading a game from the Playstation Network, you let it download for hours (depending on its size), and when it’s finished you can fiiiinally delve into it. Except you can’t, because there’s an update for it first!!!!
Why isn’t the downloadable version of the game already loaded with this update?
How hard can it be to do that?
You buy a boxed version of the game. The installer you load from the disk is essentially a downloader which downloads the software over the internet, which even with high speed broadband takes an age. Then you run the game and it still needs to download a huge update!
