OMG *spurt* Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

http://www.elderscrolls.com/games/oblivion_overview.htm

This is the only place where I could see the screenshots without broken images or having to register:

http://www.actiontrip.com/previews/t...oblivion.phtml

That could just be because of my terrible internet connection though. Not the having to register thing.

It looks beautiful. Cyrodiil is a much more pleasent place than Vvardenfell. Look at the trees! And the armour!

Incidentally, as the second link points out, this is one of those upgrade-games. You're probably going to need a new computer. Hopefully by the time it comes out, I'll have a cushy, overpaid government job or something.

Kinda worried, they said it was going to be geared more for the console, that generally means shitty computer play, or the need for even stronger hardware (or shittier hardware matching the console).

Looks like a 2005/2006 release at earliest so that by then Direct X should have dropped hardware TnL with the name change to windows whatever 1.0 and 1.1 and such for pure shaders. R520 core and who knows on the CPU end with single cores coming to an end, I hope they are doing SMP programming on it, as dual cores don't do shit without it and AMD only things 3 GHz at most is what they will reach (P4 4.5 Ghz or so). This is going to be one expensive upgrade. 6800's and X800's are gonna be running like G4's do today. Enough to run it, but that is it. Second game so far that is going to require a solid investment, UE 3 and whatever game is based off it was the first (and it needs a gig of vid ram for best perfomance and has no legacy support, like hardware TnL).

They said it may be geared more for console. That's all speculation. All that Bethesda is saying (that I've read) is that they decided not to make it only for PC.

Well this is a positive thing.

Now I can put off upgrading for as long as is humany possible... every last megahurtz and ramm I can squeeze out of my upgrade cash will be desperately needed.

+++ SP for the screenshots, too. That art is as good as many box covers and cutscenes I've seen in games... *drool*

Now they just need to fix the freaking combat system...

The preview says that the combat is going to be geared towards stupid people/console gamers. It's not going to be RNG-based. If a hit hits, then you don't miss, and you have to block manually.

maybe i'm too cynical, but i just don't believe screenshots like that will resemble the actual gaming environment

early shots like this tend to be so massively rendered they bear no resemblance to what even high-end systems will actually display

still i guess if the game is a couple of years away or something...

Yep, if I remember correctly, they expect it to require around 1 GB of RAM on the video card.

Overpaid cushy government job, indeed. Government jobs are usually cushy underpaid ones. Private sector jobs tend to be uncushy but better paid.

The only place in the world that's both cushy and overpaid would be at Google, so I hear, where you only have to actually work 4 days out of 5.

My cushy government job pays pretty good, but I had to go through six years of slavery/grad school to get it.

I was reading some books in Morrowind over the weekend and found hints about the Oblivion storyline. They seem obvious now that I know the storyline, but I had never noticed before.

The game is at least a year away. Look at UE 3. It is similar and due to be released once WGF 1.1 is released (no more having to do legacy code as Shader Langauge hasn't matured enough to take over completely).

Looks like a 3D'05 screen, only a bit more polished - and those are heavy in shader usage. So it isn't anytime soon, so you have a long time to start a piggy bank if you want it.

Nordic sword, maybe? Very cool.

I want cool axes, though. I always want characters with l33t axe skillz, but axes always seem to get shorted in games. All the coolest powers and effects end up on swords.

The Daedric axe in Morrowind wasn't as nice as some of the other Daedric weapons, but you could still custom enchant it into something cool.

Apparently they're removing crossbows and thrown weapons, and focusing on making the bows awesome. I liked thrown weapons, but bows are good too. There will probably be thrown weapon mods anyway.

Not true! Our contract, due three years ago, is still being wrangled, and we're (the workers are) getting the short end of the stick. Booooo County Board of Supervisors!

Steel bows aren't that weird. You might just have to engineer a bunch of high-tension springs or something into it. Not being aquainted with the fine art of bowmaking, archery or whatnot I don't really know either. It'd be cool if it was stainless steel though.

More screenshots (27 total, with a few repeats):

http://www.demonews.de/galerie/index...8&spieleid=362

The new magical weapons (I assume the glowing weapons are magical) look much better than Morrowind magic weapons. There are also a couple shots with dual-wielding a magic sword and a torch, and the bow system (complete with that thing you hold arrows in). The graphics aren't as showy as previous screenshots, but the greenery is still gorgeous. The monsters are more detailed than I've seen, but still not quite there yet. Check out that Daedroth.

edit: I suppose the glow on the sword could be from the torch. It seems kind of excessive for such a small flame, but the archer is also lit up quite a lot.

I just read the press release from a few days ago, announcing that Oblivion will be released for the Xbox 360. Down on a lonely line at the bottom of the article, it mentions offhandedly that it will also be released for the PC. Thank God.

Anyway, here's a link to a link to the Oblivion E3 trailer:

Narrated by Patrick Stewart, naturally.

It looks awesome. It's hard to tell if the trailer's made up of shots from the game, or is otherwise-animated. The description is pretty generic, but so are the descriptions in nearly every trailer released these days.

my cowie showed me this yesterday. definitely appeared to be a lot of 'otherwise-animation' but i supose it might have been using the game engine who knows. It was the bits toward the end that were obviosuly gameplay footage that were more interesting, but they cut these together very quickly so it was difficult to tell what was going on or how good they looked.

but to summise, i'm not sure i'm convinced that the game environment quite matches the screenies posted at the top of this thread...

"Although there are a few minor framerate issues (which almost certainly will be fixed by the time the game's released), the game's visuals look fantastic, particularly the hi-res textures and the character models."

from the Gamespy Xbox360 preview http://xbox.gamespy.com/xbox-360/the.../656745p2.html

framerate issues, again

the reviewer sounds like a suckup, saying they'll be fixed

it's never a surprise, but the forums for this game are full of a particular type of unbelievable anal idiots

there was a great post satirising them which asked for a game mechanic to accurately simulate the breathing motion, requring alternate keypresses etc.

this is a great example of the kind of crap people are asking for (and to cap it all the guy seems to think it has a shot of being put in the game a month before release)

Quote:
And i'v been thinking.... When u get cold u get stiff in your body. You lose feelings in body parts. And it can hurt like hell. (i know this.. really.. im norwegian)

I would think it would be wierd if your char could go around naked in a snowstorm and dont notice anything. Therefore i think it would be cool and realistic if your stats would decrease in time and you would lose health. And all clothes and armor could have stats on how much they warm. If u get under a certan number your char startrs to freeze. And gets loots of negative effects. Certan wheater types may freeze more than others. Forexample a snowstorm will freeze more than a sunny day.

This could also go for very Warm places.
If u are in a desert without protection, you will quicly get burned

even better we have the anal goth weirdos:

Quote:
This is slightly incorrect, from what I have read and have heard in interviews with Bethesda’s reps. Vampires will only sustain damage from the sun if they neglect to feed. Yes, I know that this decision that Beth has made is not true to what is known about Vampires, a subject of which I know lots about, (I am writing a book about Vampires). However, I can see why this choice has been made, in doing it this way vampires will be able to take part it the main quest and NPCs will not easily see them for what they are, which means that vampires will be treated the same as any other race until you are discovered as being a vampire.
i'm sure that will be a great book

roll on obilvion though, and while we're waiting how about taking a look at the speed record for completing morrowind - 7 minutes 30 seconds

I think I tried just about every combination in compatibility mode, even ones that made no sense at all. It was awhile ago though...

Then the only thing I can think of that has worked for me in the past is to copy the entire thing to the HD and try that. If that fails, then DosBox the whole thing, make sure you HD and CD is mounted, and then try again.

I know somebody who got Daggerfall working in Dosbox. I don't know how though.
