Two days...

Skyrim, peeps!

I just hope it's more like Morrowind than Oblivion.

Sounds like you really need to clone yourself!

Please tell me you've got that on the PC. I need *someone* I can play multiplayer with who isn't segregated-due-to-interface-failure.

I haven't decided if I'm going to buy it yet. I'm kind of leaning on "no" - not because I don't want to play. I really do want to play it!

Just because... I haven't finished Dragon Age II or Fable III yet. I got bogged down 2/3 of the way through Metro 2033. There's new Portal 2 multiplayer content I haven't seen yet. I have literally two dozen games that I've never *installed* because I grabbed them on sale and haven't gotten to 'em.

So $60 out of pocket for a new game seems.... excessive, when three months from now it will have the first service pack fixing all the sudden-gamekiller bugs[1] *and* go on sale for 50% off, y'know?


[1]: Bethesda game. I'm just saying.

I could be wrong but I thought I read they were going to keep the "world levels with you" thing from Oblivion/F3.

Seems to be what Morrowind fans hated.

I find it hard to put my finger on just what I loved about Morrowind so much more than Oblivion. Part of it might have just been the setting and tone. But yeah, I wouldn't mind that going back either... but if not, oh well. If the rest is still more like Morrowind I'll be happy. Or happier.

I'm in a bit of a minority, in that I loved Oblivion enough to play 90+ hours on both pc and 360, but I hated Morrowind completely and quit early on.

I couldn't stand Morrowind and quit early on because the interface was just unusably bad.

Most of that was the 2002 thing. By 2009ish when I picked it up cheap on Steam because I'd loved Oblivion, it was unbelievably dated.

I got it on release day, but I hated the crappy melee combat, and the world just felt empty.

It seemed like an MMORPG with no players.

See, the worst thing about MMOs are the players, and most of them would be a better game with no other people.

(They'd still be kinda boring and grindy, but, hey, NO OTHER PEOPLE. A *huge* plus!)

True. I dunno, Oblivion felt populated. Morrowind had npc's but it was like everybody was a dick who just stood around hating my guts.

And the world setting was just so damn bleak and murky.
