Oblivion
« on: March 17, 2005, 05:25:38 pm »
I couldn't help but notice the lack of a thread about what promises to be the greatest RPG to date. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion looks as though it will not only live up to but exceed all expectations. The XBox 2 is going to have the best launch title ever. (Assuming, of course, that they both come out around the end of this year, as expected.) Not only graphically, but gameplay wise, this thing's gonna kick the ass of everything else out there.

Dude I'm totally pumped up about Oblivion. I mean it is the game that I have wanted all my life. You can do what ever you want, back in a medeval fantasy stage, and awesome graphics. One really really crappy thing I have heard so far about the game is mounted combat. Yes you can have a horse to take you wherever you want to go but... you cannot have mounted combat. As in you have to get off of the horse to fight. You can die on the horse but you can fight on the horse. That is the only thing that makes me frown on the game.

Well, I absolutely loved Elder Scrolls III, and Oblivion looks like Morrowind on steroids. The graphics are the single most impressive thing about the game, in my opinion. One bad thing about Morrowind was the combat, which was clunky and not well animated at all. :P Hopefully Oblivion's combat system will be entirely revamped.

I wouldn't mind just a basic hack'n'slash combat system. If the combat system is like Morrowind's combat system (that couldn't mind up its mind as to what it wanted to be)... well, actually, I won't even think about that.

Oh yeah, it doesn't have to be complicated. :P That'd be difficult from the first person perspective. Lets just get some missing animations and whatnot. Not a you-keep-hacking-and-its-fine-later-on thing.

Bethesda actually admitted that the combat in TES III sucked. They said that they would make the combat in TES IV more realistic. Hopefully that realism will include mounted combat. Some one ought to let them know that the public is dissatisfied with that. OR... they could just be waiting and will end up adding it as a "new feature" in an expansion pack. I think that might be a legitimate possibility.

I honestly think they'll probably put it in the original game. Not in an expansion. Until Bethesda comes to my house and tells me "No, there will absolutely not be mounted combat in Elder Scrolls IV." then I'm gonna assume they'll be good and make a good universal combat game.

We've still got a couple years until TES IV: Oblivion comes out, so I wouldn't worry about anything.

"Years" *sigh* Well, at least Spore looks fairly complete, so we'll have something to do while we wait. Untli Spore comes out though, well... Back to the province of Morrowind.

Until Wright runs around in E3 screaming a release date I'm going for the worst case scenario for Spore's release. That being it won't be released this year.

E3 2005: "Heh...guys...sorry but Spore has been delayed." - Will Wright
GDC 2006: "Hey again guys, Spore is coming along great now, but its been delayed for a few more months." - Will Wright
E3 2006: "Spore has been...God...why are you guys even coming anymore?" - Will Wright

E3 2008: X-Box Next has been delayed.
GDC 2011: X-Box Next is ready for release! But Oblivion has been delayed for eight years.
