The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion
Posted 31 March 2006 - 05:58 PM
Each year games all see to get shorter and less deep just because of the mass audience that is now gaming. But against all of this there is a positive prelude to the "next generation" (with all the new consoles etc). those who know fable will also know how it didnt justify to is expectation of being a free RPG where anything was possible. in fact, fable was a short game as well.
But now there is Oblivion, the new RPg in the elder scrolls series. Basically you can do anything you want, whenever you want, how you want. The world is about 16 sq miles big (should be around 40 sq kilometers) and simply mind blowing [inputs screeny]
Im not much of an RPG player but Im just addicted to oblivion right now. There is so much to do. The developer said the entire game should take more than 200! hours of gaming.
I could tell all about how perfect it plays and looks, but basically, you just have to check out yourself, since there is too much to do to name it all in one post. But what i can say is that this game is actually worth its money, unlike a lot of other games these days IMO. This is like WoW without having to go online or pay monthly fees. its addicting, fun, deep, massive, mind blowing and basically what more games should be: worth its money worth in hours.
anyone else got it?

Oblivion, so far, is cool. It doesn't have as cool dialogue as other RPGs, but it's such a huge step from Morrowind. I'm not talking to encyclopediae registered under the name 'Outlander' anymore. Too bad there aren't too many voice actors though.
The only thing of big debate, is the leveling. Seriously half of the official forum's posts are about this. Granted, it doesn't have much use to level up, as the bandits level up with you as well, and it looks funny that every random highwayman has at least one part Mithril armour... But it's still cool.

but yeah, its a bit problematic with the creatures always being your level, right now my character isnt the most effective fighter out there as i chose the pilgrim class to begin with, which has security as a primary skill :S. secondary my weapons are near useless when im out of charge for that extra lightning damage which is quite vital... but i cope most of the time as a 6xdamage sneak attack to the back of the head with a enchanted mace usually gives enemies a headache . (quite ironic that a guy wearing practically a full glass armor set looking like a chandelier should be able to sneak up onto some goblin shamans and kick their butts without them noticing before they got a mace in the temple, most of the time a glass mace too btw. he has style you know )
to summarize it, i believe oblivion is a great game, although you have to be careful about the choices of major skills to begin with or you'll regret it later...

Doesn't run on my rig - I sailed the high seas in search of loot to test if it would.
Quite surprised. Your rig isn't that much worse than mine...only RAM seems to be lower...I wouldn't think the game would die on a 1.3processor...

Carnivean should be fine too. Probably. Ignore AMD processor speed, quote the chip name. It's weird that stuff doesn't work, since it should.
EDIT: Paradise sucks. In Oblivion that is.

Minimum: 512 MB RAM, 2 Ghz, 128 MB video card.
Recommended: 1 GB RAM, 3 Ghz, super-duper video card.
It probably wouldn't work on a 1.3

There's really nothing else I can say. I've only just got out of the sewers, and it's absolutely spellbinding. Any waking moment I'm not playing it, I'll probably be thinking about playing it.
And the graphics card wasn't as much of a limitation as I thought. With the way I tend to play offline games (close fuck-everything down, even background or invisible processes), I can eke up the settings quite nicely. Despite what that site said, Bloom lighting even works on mine.
Absolutely fantastic. Nobody can call themselves a gamer till they've played it. And I've only just started! I can't wait to find a village or town, or the monastery to actually get things rolling!

Very nice indeed from what I've played.
