    Hopefully they'll improve upon the great things from Oblivion, while leaving out the bad parts. If done right, this could turn out to be one amazing RPG.

    Looking forward to this game a lot.

    For the Elder Scrolls fans.

    Definately. Finally after 5 years of waiting :angry: but it was worth the wait :smile:. Not only does Elder Scrolls come out this year, but also MAss Effect 3, and some other shit that I will likely waste my money on. Yay for me!

    For sure!

    New Video! First trailer with in game footage. Plus some fucking epic ass music and whatnot as well.

    saw it already, the graphics look, well a little like oblivion but maybe that was on an xbox (hopefully)

    I think it looks pretty good. The landscape looks like its gonna be pretty cool. I like what they show with the weapons and fighting too.

    it's definately an overall improvment but i was expecting a lot more

    Looks like they completely overhauled the graphics, they look amazing compared to what was used in Oblivion. I hope I wasn't seeing things either when I saw the character dual wielding a staff and a sword, because that's pretty awesome.

    By the way, there's already a Skyrim topic in the Gaming forum on here.

    Woot for merge =P

    Also yes. And the fact that you can do cast/sword or cast/cast which makes you use both hands and lets you more powerful spells.

    Also bows don't have crosshairs but are now more powerful =D I'm looking forward to that, because I love using bows, but I was a bit disappointed overall with them in oblivion.

    Also, here's a good review of it - http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/02/24/the-skyrim-trailer-analysed-shot-by-shot/

    Dual casting sounds like it will be pretty fun.

    I too was a bit unimpressed with archery in Oblivion, which is why I used the construction kit to mod the arrows to have a bit more velocity. Instead of a full draw just lobbing an arrow into the ground after 20-30 feet, they actually behave much like real arrows would.

    Anything like Ninja Scrolls?
  16. Jul 23, 2010
    Well, that doesn't give me enough time to beat Oblivion! Stoked though. I've never played a game that I enjoyed so much besides the Fable series.

    Supposedly, arrows are going to be a lot rarer, which is a problem for me because in ESIV I was a Marksman and Sneak tank. I loved sitting in front of someone, shooting them, and them not being able to figure out where I was.

    Also, there is going to be places where you can use your skills to make money, such as Woodcutting and such.

    I have yet to use an arrow. I am a thief all the way. I love the whole character aspect. I get a little rush when I do it every time.

    They're supposedly going to revamp archery in Skyrim. From what I heard, they were making it behave a little more like real world archery in regards to draw strength and how arrows impact things. They said it would end up making bows stronger than in Morrowind/Oblivion, so that's probably why arrows will end up being less common.
