^ They'd better draw the line there. We don't want in-game large pro-life and pro-choice groups whacking themselves with a broad array of weapons to pick from and dual-wielding... wait, maybe we do.

Nah, games don't need that sort of "realism"; this sort of thing always turns out to be sort of slapped on, fun thing. Fable had this stuff, buying houses, having a wife and all: but in the end it was nothing really.

It didn't add that much, fun yes, for like 15minutes.
I'dd rather have bethesda focus on story and voices. I want mored differant sounding peepz in my world!

I hope that regardless of the number of voice actors, we won't constantly hear something along the lines of "I saw some mudcrabs by the water recently. I steered clear of them. Awful creatures blah blah blah" IMHO, more particularly since it does seem like we'll be fighting giant Cliff Racers...

I'd rather they keep conversations between NPCs to a minimum. Like it was in New Vegas. Much less repetition that way.

Well, I hope that means will meet more unique NPCs and Jordy Headsmen, having Breton Face A with hairstyle F, which looks much the same as Pete Woodcutter who lives in that last village I visisted, is a thing of the past. Both gave me a big important task, involving my uber quest to save the world

I think it would be fun to have a party aswell to travel around with. Somehow Bethesda never added that to one of their games. the lonely trecking gets a bit tidious.

Until Beth can master AI pathing, (or AI in general) I'd rather save my arrows for the enemy rather than my companion's back :¬:

Note to the NPC's of Nirn, when I'm swinging a large sword.. please don't run in front of me to poke them with a dagger

Worse still in Oblivion than it was in Fallout because of the melee focus. It's even hard to not kill your horse with your battleaxe by mistake when you engage highwaymen.

New Gameplay Preview vid from G4. I didn't notice any new footage.. looks like it's pieced together from all the other stuff we've seen, but it summarizes a lot of the combat aspects.

Nice vid if you're interested to see more.

The Mods for Oblvion allow you to have as many companions in your party as you want, i have had 28 in one adventure and it all worked out fine. Knights of the Nine has a large party and it works well too. So modding should be able to help a lot. And I do hope for more voices that would be nice.

Director comments on improved Character Voices.

Also liked this photo of another playable race.


Just hope they still have female bosmer as playable.

Why wouldn't they? They've never cut or genderlocked any races before. (In the main games at least).

1. They have already said all 10 races from Morrowind and Oblivion (it was just 8 in Arena and Daggerfall) are playable.
2. Bethesda isn't BioWare, and Dovahkiin is much more blank slate than Hawke.
3. Hawke wasn't genderlocked. Even BioWare won't do that, even if it's a good idea.

Really? Are you sure about that? I never noticed. Really you must be fooling, you could play Hawke as a Male?

Never said it was genderlocked (is that even a word), however, like I wrote, I was unable to play DA2 as a female elf. For that matter I was also unable to play ME or ME2 as a female elf. BioWare has a problem with elves.

Yeah, seems Bethesda have trotted out their lawyers again. I'm not sure why to be honest - it's exactly the same demo they showed at E3, so nothing new was revealed.

Skyrim, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby

While it looked pretty amazing when first released, time has not been kind to certain visual aspects of Oblivion, the last game in the Elder Scrolls series. Especially its plastic-faced, potato-headed characters.

Hehe, I remember the days of Morrowind and the "Better" series of mods
Better Bodies, Better Heads, Better Clothes, Better Beast Races.. etc

If Beth keeps making these type of improvements.. the only thing on Nexus (other than nekkid mods) will be house mods

I remember almost spending more time on Oblivion Character Creation (on the 360) as I did playing the main quest. Then once I got what I thought was acceptable character only to discover she looked hideous in game. So I'd spend another hour working on her before exiting the sewer.

I'm sure the modders can skill improve on Beth's improved design.

I doubt Bethesda (or any other dev for that matter) will ever release any game that can't be improved by mods in some way, especially when they cripple it for the lowest common denominator (i.e. consoles). Even without a toolset, you'd still get mods, as this site ably demonstrates.

It looks good. Love the Argonian and the Khajit but wish we could see the feet too. The wood elf and the Breton (my two favorite races) look at bit too beefy though so I hope someone will make a "better" mod

What I'm assuming you thought was a Breton was actually a Nord, and we'll be able to adjust body type in chargen.

A look at the races of Skyrim

The faces do look a lot better, but the females, and especially the Elves, look a little weird.

Thought as much. I remember downloading it ages ago on a similar "deal" just wasn't sure if it had remained so (free). Thanks for the confirmation

As I recall, it was released for free to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the whole series, just as Arena was rereleased five years prior for similar reasons.

O.M.G. want. now.

Released demo in it's entirety (3 part).
Some (a lot of) things old, BUT some things new (at least for me some things were.. hehe)

Hmmm, SciFi-ish interface in Skyrim too? Looks a bit out of place. But then I don't have high hopes for a good UI in that game anyway since it seems to be made for gamepad navigation and not mouse/keyboard.

Spiders... urgh. I don't understand why game devs insist on placing giant spider creatures in Fantasy RPGs (TES3:Morrowind being the refreshing exception). Not only does a fair number of people suffer from arachnophobia and it can completely ruin the game for those (until someone makes a mod removing the spiders), it also looks completely unrealistic. But I guess it's one of those "Tolkien did it so it's mandatory" things. Like elves.

Other than that the game looks very pretty. I hope with "handcrafted dungeons" it means they've done away with the tons of nondescript carbon copied mines/caves/ruins with absolutely nothing of interest within that littered the previous two Elder Scrolls games, and it's not just an exception of the rule.

The dragons look impressive (if a bit dumb, why land when fighting a creature incapable of flight who's armed with a melee weapon?). Pretty environments, though I hope there will be more than just snow and rock. Would get a bit dull after a while. Nice that you can dual-wield weapons as well.
