Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

Why couldn't it be Fallout Online? I'd be so there.

Anyway, still on the fence about it.

Well, I just don't want any part of it, then.

(Note: I've watched my daughter play Skyrim. I know they've gotten a lot better. )
God damnit, now I really want to revisit Daggerfall

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

My brother is taking part in the beta and this weekend he was allowed to invite somebody else to try the game and he chose me.

I was iffy because I've been kind of burnt out on MMOs recently. But it definitely felt like The Elder Scrolls while I was playing it. Granted I didn't get a chance to play it much. I only got up to level 4 by the end of the weekend. It was enough, though, to convince me to buy the game when it comes out. Which isn't too far away at this point.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

I've just preordered it. Won't be playing it - I don't like video games.

Jr. loves them though...

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

Given that my friend and I had to fight the UI to even be in the same instance layer as each other, no. Any MMO that makes it hard to group with friends isn't worth the time or money.

Have you tried Fallen Earth? It's pretty much Fallout Online minus the actual Fallout name. It's kind of neat.

That reminds me of the party interface on the XBONE. Oh snap!

I bought it. There is a certain joy in being a newb.

I'll give a more in depth report in a week or so, but honestly if I were to rate it now it would be C+/B-.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but it took me a few minutes to get that.

I might try it when/if there's a free demo version, but I doubt I'll spend much, if anything on it. For my money, single player games are inherently better, and I'm sure there are a few things I haven't found yet in Oblivion and/or Skyrim.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

I play it. I really like/love it. But i've got heaps of uni work that keeps me from it. Leveling will take me ages because i like the funny little stories and exploring etc

But still not that much better. If you can find a cul-de-sac of sorts, like a little alcove next to a shop where only one person can fit through, they do pretty much the same thing you're describing. It's how I racked up my first major bounty, in Riften.

In Morrowind, if you close a door behind you your pursuers can't even follow you into a room. You just see their animated legs glitchily poking through the door as they futilely run at it.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

Not terribly interested in an MMO version, but I eagerly await Elder Scrolls VI, whenever it should come out. I highly suspect it will not be available on XBox 360 if it ever does get made. I only hope MS comes out with a Kinnect-less X1 before then.
