    Well it doesn't get released until 11/11, so that's not surprising.

    I'll be all over this one. The only choice I'm faced with is getting it on XBOX or PS3.

    I can't imagine not playing this one on the PC. So many great mods have been made for Bethesda RPGs. Very excited about this game.

    Yes Elder Scrolls V...I'll be playing the PC version as well..mods add a second life to an already extremely replay able game.

    Normally these types of games aren't my cup of tea, but looking at the trailer for it...

    This is always a tough choice for me. There aren't really ever any performance differences between titles on the two consoles anymore. This is probably a big game though so if the 360 has to use two discs or something that will easily tip the scale to PS3 for me. I haven't bought a newly released game in a while but I'm thinking I'm going to have to get in on this one.

    While the game looks cool as usual, the commercials are annoying me bc they are using live action shots mixed with a couple game shots. I realize it 'looks nice' but is rather see more actual gameplay or even cutscenes.. not a movie trailer.

    They're doing it with the mw3 commercial too

    Gone are the days where we see actual game play to advertise a video game. But I've seen plenty on this board get huge stiffy's over cut scene screen shots.

    If you solely rely on tv spots then I don't think you care much about a particular game. There are plenty of online resources for actual gameplay footage, etc.

    Gametrailers
    Gamespot
    IGN
    etc...

    Oh man, I was speaking in general. Just replace "you" with "one" and change everything to plural and you will get what I meant. Didn't mean to suggest you were a doofus.....intentionally at least. :)

    Nice vid. Those gfx looked like a console's version though.

    Anyway, anyone know what race/class they are gonna be?

    I'm gonna make a character that is a Dark Elf Ranger (Good) with two one handed blades......if possible.

    It is my understanding that this game has races, but not classes

    I got the wife into videogames when the first Xbox came out, and now she loves most of the RPG types. All the Elder Scroll games, Mass Effects, Bioshocks, Red Dead Redemption, and Dragon Age stuff are must buys now. Its been years since I stayed up half the night playing a game, but I know she'll be doing that with Skyrim. I'm cool with that, and I get the achievement points under my Gamertag. :yes:

    Can't wait for this. MW3 collects dust as soon as this one shows up. First time pre-ordering from New Egg though so I'll have to see if it shows up on time.

    Looks like reviews are up and they are all very favorable. I think we have a strong GOTY candidate.

    Game Informer 9.5/10

    IGN 9.5/10

    Gamespot 9/10

    Here are some highlights from Game Informer.

    I'm a bit annoyed to see it is still buggy, but hopefully the release day patch will help fix that. Also I'm a bit worried as it seems almost not coverage has been on the PS3 version. I hope they haven't fully ignored it.

    Holy **** I can't wait for this game. And wouldn't you know this has to be the weekend I have a wedding. The game should arrive around the exact time I have to leave.

    Damn. Trying to remember what I did to get video games when I was young and broke like yourself. Any relatives you can hit up?

    I worked in restaurants and at other terrible jobs when I was younger. That's how I got video games.

    I began to write video game reviews for a living. Bad idea. Doesn't impress the girls at all and makes you the punching bag of "well, when do you, you know, plan on getting a real job" comments at family gatherings.

    I have a job, but I don't get paid again until next Friday. Also I try to be as financially independent from my folks as possible. Lately I have been trading in my old games to best buy, buy I traded most of them for Arkham. I still have Madden 12 and New Vegas left.

    I loved Oblivion and Fallout. Why can't they make a game like that where you can play online with 3 or 4 friends? That would be awesome!

    There is a Fallout MMO in the works. However, it's being made by Interplay and not Bethesda. They've had a nice court battle going between the 2 over it.

    I would think Borderlands comes closest to what you want.
