Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

Just think how much better a Next-Gen Elder Scrolls will look on new hardware. The current engine was showing its age, even with the new shaders in Skyrim, but not only graphically, but under the hood as well. I think that a new Elder Scrolls will have its underpinnings reworked to be more efficient. On the other hand, the new consoles have more memory.

TES VI will look and run even better on PC. I think I'm channelling Robert Maxwell.

.... Aaand and I'm out.

I was willing to give this a shot on PS4 because it would've came out at a time when there were very few games on the market. If this is pushed back to Christmas, I'll be neck deep in some good games that'll be much cheaper. Maybe I'll give it a shot when it goes free to play.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

I've played ES since Arena and played ESO since early beta with my 10 year old on the other computer. We were both excited to play ES together. (He's played Skyrim.")

It's expensive, but I can afford it, and I have almost twenty years of history with the series. It feels ES to me, compared to any other game, but certainly there are few things missing.

Recent updates vastly improved on the first release, and content is continually being tweaked and added to.

Which reminds me, I have to feed my horse...

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

That or an arrow count. Nothing pisses me off as a ranger more than having an arrow count in an MMO. Even more so when the arrows are not player made and only sold by an NPC. I'm looking at you 2 moons.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

AT level 35 and that's where I'll remain.

It's basically an extremely long, very linear, single player, by the numbers medieval CRPG with chat.

The areas are pretty (gorgeous in places), but ordinary. It's a forest, and another forest!, and another, etc.. They are also beautifully lit, unfortunately this also has the effect of making every PC and NPC comes across as a grey figure, even up close.

The quests are not worth mentioning. If you have ever played a mediocre rpg you've done all this before. Rats, Spiders, Goons, elementals, wolves, wash, rince, repeat.

I really hate Sheogorath. Overrated bore.

It makes some moves in interesting directions. The Instances require a lot of movement I like the idea of only 5-6 powers at a time, but execution needs work. Customizing your horse (By Feeding it) is a good idea that should be explored more.

Anyhow I'll give it a C+. Pretty, competent, but uninspired.

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

There are better online games than Elder Scrolls Online and it will be nothing compared to Skyrim, Oblivion, Morrowind, etc.

Not playing, even DayZ would be more interesting that elder scrolls online and dayZ sucks

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

I was really stoked for ESO, but now, with all the dismal reviews by players here, and with the PS4/Xbone versions being pushed back from original release date, I may just pass on this one and wait for ES VI and Fallout 4 on PS4.

Here's what I'd really like to see:
Borderlands 2 was just released for PS Vita (handheld), and thus far, it has almost all the features of the console versions. It had to be optimized slightly for Vita play, but other than that, it runs great.

So, both PSP and PS Vita have shown that they can indeed run open-world rpg styled action games (GTA LSS on PSP and Gravity Rush and Borderlands 2 on Vita). So, Bethesda, get ta' steppin' on Elder Scrolls and Fallout games for the Vita!

Re: Elder Scrolls Online: Are you gonna play?

So now that it's been out for a little while, what's the consensus?

Does it suck or has it gotten better with post launch patches or some-such?

The consensus is that nobody's playing it.

I cant admit to having played the beta, but I can admit that those who broke the NDA didn't like it.
