Anyone else heard of this game? Anyone considering buying it?

Very Happy

I think I've been playing Elder Scrolls since Daggerfall, and I don't think I've ever beaten one of them... although I can't really remember. At any rate, the super computer is going to get a run for its money on this one. Hopefully it plays well.

I'm half tempted to wait 2 months for a few patches Sad

New Vegas about blew up my PS3. And this was well after many patches.

That being said, I'm looking forward to this. I haven't played an Elder Scrolls game past 2 hours. I didn't care for the combat of Obivion, but I admit I never gave it much of a shot. This game looks promising to be a step up.

Loved Arena, adored Daggerfall, LOVED Morrowind, hated Oblivion, disliked Fallout 3. After Morrowind, they lost their best people, and despite Todd Howard being one of the few left from the old guard, he's demonstrated time and again that he's the weakest of them as far as I'm concerned. Regardless, I can't wait to play this. As usual, I will roll up all my cynicism into a ball and lock it away until I'm at least four hours into it.

Loved Arena


For some reason I couldn't get into Arena. Perhaps it is because the first time I tried it was about 6 months ago and by that time the graphics and gameplay were just a tad dated.

I never got into MW. I wanna play it now but unless my friend lets me borrow his GOY version or w/e has all the xpacs in it, I see no reason to. I remember every time I started a new game I would end up in some desert place with no idea where I was or how to get back. Also, I could never tell if I was hitting something or not and if I was, how much longer I'd have to guess if I was hitting since I couldn't see health.

The first expansion includes a healthbar for the enemy so you can see if you're actually doing enough damage to be worth it. I say, just enchant a ring with permanent levitation and nuke everything from orbit

There's also the Moroblivian mod, it adds Oblivion quality graphics to MW. Never tried it as I never played MW, but it looked awesome.

And Yes, I'm excited for Skyrim Laughing

So all those SWtOR weekend beta invites you all got awhile back? I got mine today, for this weekend. I might have to see about pulling a 3 day all nighter just to take it all in.

I just got my copy a day early. Excitement got the best of me and I tried to install. Apparently, you need a Steam account and because of that, Steam will not allow me to activate until 12. FFFFFfffffuuuuu

Excited to see how it runs on my computer. Most games these days I just go the console route, but not for an Elder Scrolls.

Any of the gaming websites done a side by side yet? I assume most of the amazing videos I've seen are PC.

I was a little disappointed while playing through the intro. After playing Batman, I'm kind of used to amazing, fluid combat. You just don't get that here unfortunately.

There are certain points of polish that Bethesda just doesn't seem to focus on for whatever reason.

Then I went and explored and ran through a dungeon and remembered why I love these games. Now I'm hooked. Can't wait to play more tonight.

I like meatier, more realistic combat a la Condemned. I love Batman too, but it's just a different type of game entirely. I can't really compare the two.
