Thanks for the knowledge.

I guess that also explains KotOR II. Damned LucasArts rushing that game just because they wanted it out by Christmas...
You're welcome. And yeah, sadly, it happens a lot.

I will thank Lucas Arts for one thing... they had to "approve" my website when we published a two-part interview with Chris Avellone from Obsidan (KotOR2's lead designer) back in the day.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I bought Oblivion so that I'll have something to play the week before Christmas when I (hopefully) get Skyrim. :P The achievement list for Skyrim is out by the way. Apparently you can get married.

ETA I think i'm gonna be a Nord in Skyrim and a Breton in Oblivion.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I've just started playing Oblivion (Yeah, yeah, I run a few years behind the times when it comes to games -- too dang pricey imo), and I have to ask -- is there a way to fix/lock the camera angle? Egads, it's driving me wonky during combat... *gggrrrr*

Overall, though, it seems like a decent game.

Cheers,

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Oblivion is meant to be played in first person . . . the third person mode is jokingly referred to vanity mode so you can view your character's outfit etc . . . not really meant to be played 100% third person
if you're on PC there may be a mod to make the third person view more to your liking
www.tesnexus.com

from what I hear Skyrim will have a better third person experience

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Heh, yeah, the third-person mode is a joke in both Morrowind and Oblivion.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Should I get the PC or PS3 version?

The PC version is substantially cheaper, but I'm going to wait a short while anyway before purchasing it, so what should I get? I have a laptop that's capable of running Skyrim, and I also have a 40+ inch plasma with a PS3 hooked up... Decisions, decisions...

if your laptop has HDMI ouput (or if your TV has a VGA input) then go for the PC version
if you don't want to mess with getting your PC hooked up to your TV then get the PS3 version

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I've been thinking about getting this one, as I've heard good things, but I know there are four others that have come before it. Would it be advisable to start with those first or would picking up this one not detract from the overall story-arc in this universe?

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

All of the Elder Scrolls games are designed to be standalone stories set in different locations on the same continent. IIRC, each game is set a good amount of time after the previous one, though I don't know how much time has passed between Oblivion and Skyrim.

Re: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I only played Oblivion and not any of the older games... but the main story wasn't exactly a main focus there anyway. Or even worthwhile

For anyone who may be interested, the latest episode of Official Xbox Magazine's podcast has an interview with Bethesda's Todd Howard.

no previous games necessary, though having played the other games will give you a greater sense of the world . . . little details in the books(there are hundreds of books in-game) etc tie it all together

Skyrim is about 200 years after Oblivion, and Oblivion was just a few years after Morrowind
