That list is not accurate.  In fact, it's totally made up.  Even the numbers are wrong.  Perks happen on multiples of 25.  So they've got too many perks to begin with :lol:

After looking at the racial list, I am 99% sure I will be an Argonian.  Poison and Disease were nasty in morrowind.  I also really enjoyed underwater exploration in MW and hope it is improved in Oblivion.  One thing I don't remember, were resists on a 1-100 scale, in that a 100 resist is 100%?

Filefront Mirror for the Video:

That video is simply amazing. Hands down the most epic feel for a game ever. This game is looking to be even better than my already sky-high hopes for it!

Pretty, but it's just a snippet of a short walk in first-person view.  That, to me, does not constitute 'gameplay'.  Doing just that is what made the first Morrowind a total bore to me.  Just roaming around (most of the time) doing nothing more than getting from point a to point b.  YAWN.  But I absolutely love the graphics and the music.  Those two things were a sight to see and hear.

Also, FWIW, Gamestop and EB don't have the PC Collectors Edition available on their site anymore.

They still have the 360 Collectors Edition up, but the PC version may be sold out or something.

Heh, they never said the video was of gameplay.  Still, a short walk in this game is a lot more interesting than short walks in other games.

I think future videos they show will be more action packed.

LOL

And with Bethesda's site down (or exploded), visit Worthplaying to get the movie. All it is is a 20 second walking sequence, but it shows off how damn good the game looks in motion.

Ron, I'd tell you to host the movie locally, but the hordes of fans would crash your server methinks. biggrin

Thanks.  I was planning on going on lunch break Monday/Tuesday to pick up the game, but with places starting to not take any more pre-orders for the PC CE, I was starting to think if I should just go over there right when they open:ninja: . (it's like 5 mins from work)

Yeah, I looks like the PC CE is going to be in very short supply. EB and Gamestop are not taking preorders for it anymore, so if you want one....get to Best Buy/Walmart/Circuit City early.

I'd say that is a safe bet. If it is being sold in stores in Europe or even shipped to stores (and held in back), then the pirate groups will get it. They have people that work in the stores who get them the games as soon as they come in, street date or not.

Weekend? Too slow for the pirate groups. Thursday, with Friday at the latest.

Yes, but if he were to blow up what was shown before, to that size there would be a huge distortion, I would think and it would look nowhere near as good.

The official forum seems about split on if it is real or not.

Hope he posts more pics soon to we can put this to rest either way.

Ok guys, I spirited out of Bethesda a super secret screenshot showing how the game works at Highest Detail, vs Lowest Detail!




Personally, I think it looks pretty good on low detail! Look at that detailed Sun!!
