I broke down and got the guide.  I had to convince a Gamestop guy to 'break the street date' on it too...

I am confining myself to the non-spoiler part of it.  So far its nice, more strategy and discussion than most guides.

Damn Germans.

My EBGames order has now also been updated to OPEN, without the option of cancelling. Hopefully, when I come back from work, there'll be an e-mail waiting for me, saying it's been shipped.

GameSpot's first-ever Live Gameplay Marathon begins Saturday, March 18, featuring The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
This weekend, GameSpot subscribers will have a chance to get an extensive firsthand look at Bethesda's next highly anticipated role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion...or rather, a secondhand look. We'll be bringing you a live feed of our first marathon stretch playing the retail Xbox 360 version of the game (prospective players should be wary of potential spoilers).

GameSpot executive editor Greg Kasavin will be driving the game, offering commentary about the experience as it transpires. Subscribers will see a picture-in-picture view of Kasavin as he spends an increasing number of successive hours playing the game, and they will be able to chat with each other over the course of the event. However, Kasavin will not have access to the chat room, to avoid any outside influences on his time spent evaluating the game.

In summary:

What: GameSpot Live Gameplay Marathon, featuring The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (Xbox 360)
When: Saturday, March 18, 6:00 p.m. PT - Sunday, March 19, 6:00 a.m. PT (subject to change...but what could possibly go wrong?!)
Why: Because it sure beats Sunday brunch with the in-laws. And because we know you want to see and play Oblivion as much as we do.

Expect written hands-on impressions, gameplay videos, and high-resolution images of the game to appear on GameSpot over the course of the weekend. However, to be among the first to experience Oblivion in raw, unfiltered form, and to get impressions directly from one of our editors as he plays, you'll have to tune in to our live feed.

That is a messed up idea, and I wouldn't suspect many people actually tuning in.  I don't want the first 12 hours of the game spoiled for me and I would think other people would think likewise.

I will probabily tune in here and there....but no way will I watch the whole thing. I'll probabily watch the start though, since I know the whole character creation stuff part from the previews.

Hey kathode, can you do me a favor and delay the game's release for a couple of weeks.  I got stuff that needs to be done, and the first week of May looks like a better release date, so if you don't mind that'd be great.


kthanxbye!

Zebra butt! I forgot all about the Pirate Dogs! I thougth I cast them out to sea to die ages ago! It would seem that you've adopted them.

I will watch it and will easily be able to tell if I will like it or not, and if not, save the money.  Since noone supposedly has to play it any particular way I don't see how the way he chooses to play it will ruin much of the experience.  Just my take.  I am watching for the sole purpose of seeing if it is worthy of a buy since I am uncertain about it at this juncture.  But I can certainly see how those who feel their very lives depend on getting this game would not want to see it.

IGN will also be having an "Oblivion Weekend", found this post on the forums from on the editors:

Quote
Well, our Oblivion retail builds are scheduled to arrive soon, so we'll be playing it over the weekend. Just a heads up, once we get a little further into the game than we've previously been we'll pull some direct feed and screens, and we'll let you know when they're ready.
