2 new screenshots.

Mammoths!
Grumpy looking dude!


Funny how your impression of things can change... I mean, I used to think the graphics looked absolutely amazing but after playing The Witcher 2... yeah this looks average Though half of the beauty of Oblivion was in its distance LOD files imo, looking into the distance and stuff... more about the whole than the details.

Still looking forward to it as all hell though.

Also some information I read on TESNexus:

Quote:
Bethesda has revealed some new information in the latest issue of PlayStation Magazine. A user on the Bethsoft forums, GT409, has a copy of the issue and has summarized some of the information, though it is a mix of new and old.

Five Dragon Shouts are described; three have the dragon language names included: Yol Toor (fire breath), Iiz Slen (ice crystals), Strun Bah Qo (lightning storm). The remaining two shouts grant the ability to slow time or move quickly in one direction. Also on the subject of dragons, Bethesda explained that dragons will appear randomly, battles with them will be unscripted, and they can be grounded with injuries.

The article gives some new information about travel. Horse riding is included, as well as both Oblivion- and Morrowind-style fast travel. Horses are said to be "more detailed" than those in Oblivion and to behave more like real horses.

As previously revealed to GameInformer, dual wielding is included in Skyrim, but the article elaborates slightly more on that subject. Torches can be wielded in one hand and even used as a weapon. Of course you can use spell/spell, weapon/weapon, weapon/spell or weapon/shield too. Shield/spell was not mentioned (but not ruled out), nor was the "Confused Turtle" (shield/shield).

Not much new information about the "radiant story" quest system, except that Bethesda felt that some quests in Oblivion felt "too fake." The new system aims to make them feel "more real."

Three more factions have been confirmed: the Thieves' Guild, College of Winterhold (mages), and Companions (Warriors). Along with the Dark Brotherhood this brings the total number of (confirmed) factions to four.

Though mentioned before, Bethesda has reiterated that each city will have have its own, unique economy which the player can affect, presumably both negatively and positively. Sabotage is specifically mentioned. On a related note, the player's bounty is now separated out by each of the nine areas. You can be a wanted criminal in one area and a complete unknown in another. Guards will also be less powerful than guards in Oblivion.

Some final tidbits: 13 different types of ore for crafting, 60,000 lines of recorded dialog (Fallout 3 has "over 40,000"), more voice actors than Oblivion, and hand-to-hand joins the growing collection of removed skills.

Not sure I like the left hand/right hand thing.


It seems ridiculous that a mage would be like ok, right hand for fire, left hand for heal. If I get my left and rights messed up I'm in ALOT of trouble. (Though he'd probably wear a watch or write a big L on his left hand)


Also, I'm hoping its not the case, but for me in RPGs when you mix two disciplines like magic and melee you just end up being a rookie at both, so the sword in one hand spell combo is generally out for me. I say in for a penny in for a pound, go either the biggest sword you can find that takes two-three hands to swing, or go all out spellstorm.




By the way, I'm so excited for this game. I forgot it was even coming out until last week and now I can't do any work, it's annoying.

I think the system sounds cool, but you can focus your spells too by using the same spell in both hands if I remember correctly.

As for melee/mage mixes...

Left hand: Damaging spell
Right hand: Sword with Absorb Magicka/Lower Resistances enhancement

And there ya go... melee mage awesomeness

E3 Gameplay

*sits down and watches video*

Had to watch it without sound (at work) but OMFG... awesomeness. It gives me a bit of impression of Bioshock in open world medieval fantasy. Seriously... the dragon and that giant... holy **** that was awesome.

Combat looks pure awesome. More weight and response in the blows and magic... me like.

The UI looked a bit annoying though... the font used didn't really look Elder Scrollsy...

I hope there's a way to avoid having to kill the dragons... would feel weird to kill such majestic creatures, especially when there are so few left.

Yeah apparentely they can swoop down into a town outta nowhere and just flame the **** out of it. They just fly around and want a snack now and then.

Read on wikipedia that some of them won't be hostile and can be spoken to... YAY. Love that idea.

I hope they can pick the PC up like it did with the giant... just strolling around on a field when suddenly BAM, you just went airborne b****!

An interesting interview...

You can marry and your spouse will move in with you in your home ^^ Yay

Hope said romances will be interesting though... not just "I am now married to you, my special ability is now available to you" or something.

Or just a quick pointless way to make children for your character and encourage polygamy. (Like fable)

If there even are children in the game...

I hope so, and I hope that they are killable.

Not that I wanna kill children... but imagine the roleplaying feeling when you accidentally fling a fireball in a slightly wrong direction and end up turning an orphanage into an inferno.

In Fable, having a wife and kids is like having a zombie family so I certainly hope that it will be more interactive than that. >.>

I watched the video, and it seems fun. I loved Oblivion even if it was a bit complicated with all the weird skills and star signs etc.

I do agree with that compared to the Witcher 2, some stuff there looks pretty bad. Just look at the shield in first person view. :/

Whaaaa...? Elves don't just look like humans with long ears? WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!

Looks awesome.

Khajiit are pretty disappointing though... something feels off about the faces... especially the females.

Lorewise the Khajiit outside of Elsweyr are rarely supposed to look so catlike anyway though, in fact most of them are supposed to be almost human with just some catlike features.

There are many different species... guess they wanted to avoid having generic catgirls running all over the place but it's still a nr 1 mod priority for me... bringing the Ohmes-Raht back...

It seems like the series will find it's great successor since i see the graphics seem more advanced, (gotta love the Argonians) and seem even the combat mechanics will be improved, now if there is even mod system, it will be certainly the great one (and then let's hope the sixth in the series will be outmost epic),
