Hopefully the game will look as good as the trailer.

I always hated when they put out a trailer so far ahead that looks awesome, but then the actual game gets dumbed down in the graphics department for the final release. It's like seeing Death Dealer on the cover of Molly Hatchett albums and going ".... yeah! this is gonna be brutal!" and you get Country Rock. :/


Oblivion did get repetitious with the design after a while, but that was done to save time. I mean, there's over 250 locations to explore not counting the cities. Hell I'm just glad you could actually go into all the houses! I HATED that limiting crap in Silent Hill, and that "hunt for it" crap in general where you go into a town full of houses and go up and down the street checking doors: "will this one open? nope. how about this one? nope. this one? no. this? no. here? no. ...., this one? no. this sucks - HEY! I finally found a door that will open, what's inside? not jack shit. 2 dead bodies, a weaker weapon than what I've got, and a fat guy in heavy plate with a 6-foot chainsaw that you can't defeat, and can't take his weapon if you do win."

And someone will really have to explain in great detail what made Morrowind such a smash hit. Granted I tried it on XB only after having been through Oblivion several dozen times, so I'm spoiled a bit on the graphics, but really, go total-geek and explain why it's infinitely better than Oblivion, cuz I don't see it.
The graphics were weak even for the time it came out!

Oblivion and Morrowind on Xbox...
I'd totally not recommend playing these games on console. Having tried both, I can say that the experience on PC is much better.

I have a poo laptop, I'll pick this up on PS3 or Xbox (maybe PS3 has better graphics?). I think it'll still rock my balls off. My buddy wants to play it too since he's never played a game like this...I assured him his balls will be rocked off too.

I am not geek enough to buy the CE, but I will likely buy the game itself. 150$ is just too much.

I WANT the Collector's Edition for the stuff, but I really can't justify it enough since it's just a map that'll get hung up and an art book that'll get looked at every now and then.

Regardless, I'll still be buying the regular edition or if there's one between the standard and CE, one that might include some DLC and such then I'll grab that.

I've been kicking myself for years for not getting the Oblivion Collector's Edition because that Imperial Septim replica was friggin' bitchin'. I know the Skyrim CS is pricey as ...., but this is pretty much the one game series for which I'm okay with dropping that kind of coin. I played Oblivion to 100% completion (so far as that can actually be done) on 360, PS3 and PC, so the price tag here didn't really phase me.



Yes, I actually am that lame.

I'm lusting over all those too. Of course the major ....ing problem here is they will all release around the same time. I hate that. When I really get into a good game, whether it be a rpg like Elder Scrolls or multiplayer like GOW, I like to spend months on just that game. I'm gonna be torn as to how to schedule my gaming

So 60 hour main story (I am sorry devs, but whenever you tell me it is an 80 hour story I finish in 50, and so on ). Either way, that is a hell of a lot bigger than oblivion. Anyone know what they quoted on Oblivion, I know I had done most everything I wanted to and got bored in 30 hours. Morrowind I don't want to think of how long I played for.



I agree about the cities too, we need another Vivec, that at least felt bit walking around it.

Graphically I've heard it really does look as good as it's made out to be, and that it's really pushing the 360 hard, and that at this stage, there are some signs that make that obvious, so it's a bit choppy at times.

That is beautiful!!

The ONLY two reason why I don't play Morrowind, though, is the fatigue and magicka systems. Fatigue plays too big of a role, and magicka doesn't come back unless you sleep or drink potions. And I refuse to use the stunted magicka birthsign.

EDIT: There are mods that try to help this, but they're either too overpowered or are glitchy. I may just have to make a fighter class.

Is there a decent mod manager for Morrowind that's like Oblivion Mod Manager? There are too many annoying things about Morrowind for me to get too in to it, but I imagine there are mods that take care of them. However, I haven't found a way to make installing Morrowind mods quick and easy like the OMM. I don't really want to have to go into the game script and insert lines of code myself.
