edited November 2011 in Spurious Generalities
So, I'm not all into Elder scrolls as a seies; I've only played Oblivion but I thoroughly enjoyed it. When I heard about Skyrim/saw the trailer I creamed in my jeans. no joke. Just wondering what y'all might be looking forward to in the game and what changes we'd like to see as opposed to oblivion. Apparently there'll be a different leveling system (thank god) and combat will be more "visceral" which i suppose means realistic. I'm personally looking forward to dual-wielding, stronger bows, and sneak instant kills when using a dagger. Because im usually an assassin. Thats how i roll.

    I hope it's more like morrowind than oblivion. I've been playing elder scrolls games since i was really young and morrowind was longer/deeper in story. I still wish they would make an elder scrolls MMO for PC or 360

    Fucking this, I really hope they put a more complex dialog system and more in-depth characters, and maybe an open option for companions throughout the game.

    Any mention of the game must be followed by this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9eGtyqz4gY .

    Anyway I just hope that have more than three voice actors this time. Oh and for cities to actually be big the imperial city housed all of 20 or so people it was more like the imperial Cul-de-sac!

    I want better melee combat, and it seems that this will deliver more than Oblivion did. Trouble is, I've got a shitload of games to play and bugger all time to play them!!

    The voice acting was sooo shitty in Oblivion and the faces looked like it was a kingdom full of down-syndrome and Fetal alcohol sufferers, no wonder they're losing the war against the Daedric.

    They said they made big improvements with dialog also they are supposed to have more voice actors. Should be a really good game.

    It's going to be dumbed down more than Oblivion, they have reduced the number of skills you can level up, and the main quest is to kill the bad guy and save the world, there will be no 'evil' option to finish the main quest again.

    I miss Morrowind, don't think I could be bothered to play it again though lol.

    Tbh I have never completed the main quest I just can't be arsed with the oblivion gates they are just boring and all look the same. Fuck me, less skills? I mean I like the current amount it makes you have to think about how you want to play. Plus I enjoy the creation of custom classes.

    I heard that the reason they have changed the system is that you don't know how you want to play the game at the beginning? Maybe if you've never played an rpg but not if you have a feint idea I like having various magic and blade with my sneak and acrobatics skills being high but as minor skills.

    Also I heard they were removing Enchanting and spell creation!

    I'll probably jizz myself if they bring back unarmored back like they had in morrowind. Unarmored skill+Magic and a little dagger= invinsibility

    Well its 6 days to go I figure I'd do a spot of threadromancy if that's ok?

    Things are looking good there is the first 23 minutes floating about somewhere (I'll try and link) which I haven't seen I figure the surprise will be better.

    There you go.
    Anyway I'm looking forward to just exploring for it's own sake picking up quests as I go but with no real direction just going where ever the wind takes me :D

    Not I, TheWichDoctor. I pre-ordered the collectors edition off Amazon, it wont be here till the following monday I believe. Does anyone know if the difficulty will determine how fast you level like in Oblivion/Fallout 3?

    Also, I'm bummed they got rid of the hand to hand.

    to bad my graphics card sucks havent been able to any games maybe it was a side effect of overclocking i guess ill have to retry oblivion because i know that worked fine before overclock
  • edited November 2011
    ^ You could OC your graphics card as well :D Stability is a bitch when clocking though.

    On a side note, what graphics card have you got?

    The minimum PC requirements, as tweeted by Bethesda's Pete Hines:

    Dual-core CPU, 2.0 GHz or faster
    2 GB RAM
    DirectX 9.0c video card with 512 MB RAM
    6 GB HDD space
    Windows XP/Vista/7 [32 or 64-bit]
    Internet access for Steam activation


    And the recommended spec:

    Quad-core CPU
    4 GB RAM
    DirectX 9.0c video card with 1 GB RAM - GTX 260/Radeon 4890 or higher
    6 GB HDD space
    Windows XP/Vista/7, internet access, etc.

    I've had a couple of glitches. It froze on me 3 times last night but nothing major besides that.

    Also I have like 30 pounds worth of quest items that I can't get rid of. :facepalm: I don't even know for what quests half of them are for.
