Are you waiting for Reach? That game will totally help with this. Instead of trying to explain to your friend that your at the Warthog at the other side of the map, it tells you where on the map you are with names, so you can just say the name of the place.

Ever since I bought CoD, Borderlands and Bioshock, Halo just seems too, ancient and used up. Nothing is new, and Reach now has classes. I played a bit of it, I'd rather stick with the better FPSs out there.

I've realised in recent months that my gaming has decreased by over 500%, I now use Ubuntu where in the past I would only have dreamed about it and I have less and less interest in games as the time goes on... maybe... maybe I'm maturing !!! Shocked

What do I love about Oblivion? I keep finding new things.

I just found a scroll in the Skingrad home above the stairs in your room (you have to jump on the shelves.) leading to a cache.

Also, I found a Spectre Mud Crab in Paradise, it had a Claymore of Destruction on it's person. It was tough to beat.

Damn I need to try Oblivion soon... hmm... Morrowind is on sale on Steam, anyone tried that?

33 Re: We are gamers! on Mon Jun 14, 2010 7:30 pm

Morrowind is the game before Oblivion, a lot of people are split between the two.

I see... well, the discount is over and I think I'll just go right for Oblivion cause it's the game I've heard most praise about.

Whats the plot? What kind of game is it?

It is an action RPG FPP... a comparison that which people compare a couple of games it this:

"Oblivion is Fallout 3 without the guns" (without VATS)
"Fallout 3 is oblivion with guns" (with VATS)

Apart from that Oblivion has a bigger map, more areas, custom weapons (such as enchanting a Steel Longsowrd with fire damage), custom spells within spell schools (although the ability has to be unlocked , you can buy spells within stores), loads of enemies, a decent combat system and so many goddamn quests that you wondered how they fit it all on a disc.

Seriously. I've clocked over 200 hours with over a dozen characters and I am STILL finding new things. I have all the achievement yet I am STILL playing it because it is so much fun.

As for the story, you will find that you will be doing so much other things that you might not even touch it until you are level 20+, there is no time limit and Bestheda encourages exploring. You can be doing the main quest and see a cave and go "Fuck it, I'm killing everything inside and looting it." and 90% of the time there is a good chest at the end with decent levelled equipment.

Plus all the factions have their own stories to them. Dark Brotherhood (Assassin), Thieves guild, Fighter's Guild, Mage's Guild, Main Story, Shivering Isles (comes with the Game Of The Year Edition), Knights of the Nine (Comes with GOTY Edition) and everything else.

Levelling up is not raised by experience, but by a modified Final Fantasy 2 system. The more you use a skill, the better you get at it. You choose 7 (or Cool main skills and every time you level ten of them you rest then level up (any combination, so you can level Alchemy 10 times and level up or level all the main skills, two twice and level up). You get bonuses to your stats on level-up depending on what you developed (up to +5, but you can play the whole game with +2 and still have a great character).

OH THE PLOT LOL

Basically, the Emporer is assassinated along with his sons and you are sent to find the illegitimate heir so he can light the Dragonfires to stop the world of Oblivion from taking over Cyrodil.

I didn't spoil anything, that is pretty much what it says in the first 20 mins. However the next 50 hours of your life will be doing everything but the main quest.

I personally don't know anyone that have major "but's" towards Oblivion when they've played Morrowind first.
For a newbie to TES lore Oblivion will be a good/great game. But to someone who played Morrowind, not to mention Daggerfall the game feels like it's a step back in meanings of plot and immersity in favour of visuals & casual gamer experience.

And there was some about faces in Oblivion and in F3... check out Vampire - The Masquerade : Bloodlines (if you haven't) and see faces in that game. Despite it's older, the mimics and looks are ten times better. Not to mention the whole game was even more immersive than Morrowind. Very Happy

A stepback? Sounds like the same argument a Fallout fan has from Fallout 1-2 into Fallout 3.

Each game has it's thing, I'm torrenting Morrowind now and I'll see for myself. I'm not bracing for epic.


Although that vamp chick is hot.

I don't think F3 was a step back because it was completly different game. Not worthy bearing Fallout franchise name, IMO.

If you're looking for a great graphics in Morrowind or smooth gameplay like in Morrowind you'll be dissapointed. Brace yourself for lots of walking through deserted lands. Very Happy

Hay guise

Listen

Guess what conversation I just had with an Alchemist in Skingrad? (in the Alchemy shop)

"I'm the only alchemist in Skingrad. Not much business here, but I can't go back to Morrowind. It's just like anywhere else in the Empire. By the way... do you happen to know what the fine is here in Cyrodiil for necrophilia? Just asking."

>"Is it the first offence?"

"Let's assume 'no'."

>"Then it's at least 500 gold."

"That's nothing compared to Morrowind. Thanks."
