Does anybody know of a good doctor that wouldn't mind putting someone into a medically induced coma for 8 1/2 months or so?

I am sure I'll get this, but I hope they don't waste anytime using this new engine to make another Fallout game

These conspicuous little plants were Oblivion’s token collectible item. You could take them to a guy who’d brew a mediocre potion out of them for you. Now that I write it down, I’m not sure why I’m so excited to see them return."

Skyrim and Battlefield 3 are going to renew the future of PC Gaming for me in a way I never thought possible.

Given The Elder Scrolls and Bethesda Softworks in general's history I'd say you needn't worry about it. Definitely getting this for the PC for the modding community.

More like, that mountain, you can walk up to the top of that mountain... unless you come across a hill that slopes more than 40 degrees.

At least in the old games.

Someone recorded the live demo from Quakecon

It's taken down on youtube as soon as it's put up, so I figured I'd just post a download link

God damn it why is it not November now? I can't remember the last time I anticipated getting a game this much. It was probably Daggerfall.

Well in all fairness they would have to try really hard to make models look as ugly as they look in Oblivion in this day and age.

Got a i5 2500K and some RAM for my b-day yesterday. I was wavering on upgrading my GTS 250 but this thread has convinced me to just go ahead and do it.

I've been eyeing this game for a bit, as its obviously been in the news. However, I've never played an elder scrolls game before, but it does seem interesting. It's rpg-ish, right? And should I look into some of the previous games first, or should I just go ahead and pounce on this? Any games that compare to elder scrolls that anyone knows of to give me a feel of the style?

Sorry if I'm asking dumb questions, but I've been hearing good things about this and I'm curious/wanted to get some first-hand advice on this series.

^It is an action RPG, and you can do whatever you want, follow the main quest, or just ignore it and go around and do anything you want. If you want to get a feel of the style just go pick up Oblivion, i'm sure you can get it for quite cheap and it is a great game.

Thanks for the input! I'm looking at oblivion on steam right now, and they're offering two versions:

Oblivion: GOTY Edition, including Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles expansions.

Or

Oblivion: GOTY Deluxe, including Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles expansions plus Fighter's Stronghold Expansion, Spell Tome Treasures, Vile Lair, Mehrune's Razor and much more.

Prices are $19.99 and $24.99, respectively. Is all that additional DLC worthwhile? Thanks again!

The additions to the 24.99 version aren't that great, but if it's only $5 difference, go for it.

Get the $20 version, its fine, the other shit you probably will not even notice its there once you pay for it unless you are a evil mage nerd or something.

I think I am about to get Morrowind.

Morrowind and Oblivion were awesome. Be really careful who you kill in Morrowind. It's easy to make a bad decision and sink your battleship. There's another bug in it to keep in mind also.

It was too easy to become God in Morrowind and Oblivion, but if the gimping of characters between Fallout 3 and Fallout: NV is an indicator that won't be a problem.

Picked up Oblivion this morning, and I'm already hooked

Still getting the hang of things, but so far it's excellent, and I'm looking forward to figuring out more of it as I go along.

On a sidenote, is there any quick way to get lockpicks, or boost my lockpicking ability for that matter? I got the version with the DLC, and from what I've read, it's driving the bug that keeps one store perpetually locked that I need to get into, and I just need to pick it during the day and I won't get a bounty, but will be able to get in and do this step in the quest. Unfortunately, it's a difficulty of "hard" and I'm out of picks now. Ideas?
