Just finished playing the first mission in the campaign mode.

It feels very much like Rise of Nations, which is to be expected.  

Graphics are a mixed bag.  Units don't really stand out, they're kinda bland looking, but the buildings and animation are interesting and good.

It's very hero-centric.  The RTS mode feels like Age of Mythology mainly because of the story and hero units.

When you start the demo, it warns you about long load times and incomplete content.  It's true.  You can tell some sound effects are missing.  Even a cutscene had it's audio missing, it was just a fly over on things on the map.  Didn't make any sense and felt out of place.

It took me about a minute to load the first map.  I don't have a super fast computer, but I'd say above average.  

seems you can do more in the strategic map, but i didn't really fool around with it, because i had no idea what i was doing, and it was only the first level, but you can see there were more options

You can only play as Alin in this demo, (I'm not sure if you can play other sides in the skirmish mode)

The first map, was huge, it took a while for my units to get to one side to the other.  I can't imagine how big the maps will be the further you progress.
Also, you can't save in the RTS part, but in the strategic mode you can.

Sony today confirmed they plan to toss the much-reviled boomerangamajig PS3 controller thingy

Regrettably, the very boomerangamajiggy shape of the controller means that it'll be back.  It'll be back.


Is there a rule for locking threads for bad jokes?

Ok, I got bit by a vampire during my sleep,

Now I'm melting under the sun.

How do I cure it?

I tried praying but that didn't do anything. I don't want to bite people every day. I don't want to be a vampire

Hah, if you guys see me online at the time, invite me to the chat because I'm really liking the game too.

I let my friends play Oblivion, and even one that hated morrowind with a passion likes Oblivion.  They just got it right.

However, I also had a story where they were unprepared for the new feature of monsters going across zones.

In one instance, my friend had gone into an old fort, got in a little too much trouble and ran for the door zone.  As he stepped outside he breathed a sigh of relief, but I was grinning an evil grin as he did so.  When he asked me what was up I told him NPCs can now go through zones, and just then the imp that had been chasing him showed up and nailed him with a fireball.  He freaked out, but finally managed to kill it.

If you visted GG back in the day when Morrowind was out, you'd know my strong distaste for Morrowind.  I hated that game, it was incredibly boring.

I wasn't sure I'd like oblivion, just based on my experience with MW, but hype got to me, and I know I couldn't talk shit about Oblivion if I didn't at least try it and give it a chance (like i did with MW).  So, after expecting to be bored, I loaded it up, and man I'm floored.  The game is awesome.  Even with the interface issues, the game is a blast to play.

Very rarely do I play a game for 7 hours the day I get it...even more rare is playing another 7 hours the next day.  For this guy who simply couldn't stand Morrowind (but always *wanted* to like it), Oblivion just seems to have that certain SOMETHING and I've been trying to figure out what it is.

Maybe it's because things are actually happening.  I mean, totally random quests, including a quest in which I had no IDEA what I was getting myself into; a total, what the HECK is going ON moment.

Maybe it's nailing an unsuspecting troll in the back of the head with an arrow only to watch him crumble over a railing down into a pit below. *edited to add* (I think Arkon and me had the same incredibly cool physics moment!)

Perhaps it's because they just NAILED the environment.  As I was traveling from Barma (or whatever its called, the northern city) to the Imperial City, I was walking along a winding road down a hill and it looked just like an area in which I lived in real life.  It was beautiful.

I just can't get this game out of my head - while driving, I look to the side of the road and see herbs that I could be picking to mix into potions and sell, I play the game on a headset with Calvin (because we're gay like that) and hearing his reaction to stuff in the game is as fun as my own reaction to cool stuff going on.

And it's just so weird, the fact I am really engrossed in this game.  The exploration reminds me of Shadow of the Colossus.  I mean, just coming across totally random stuff, it's amazing.  

And to be honest, I dislike games like this, as a rule!  I like LINEAR stuff, I LOVE hand-holding; why in the world am I so enthralled by the extreme open-endedness of Oblivion?

And I haven't even started the main quest yet!

So even while I'm not entirely sure how much longer Oblivion will continue to captivate me, or if I'll even come CLOSE to finishing the main quest; the first 14 hours of gameplay in Oblivion were pretty special to me.

I bet you gained a few pounds smile

All week long we've been having internet problems.  We use comcast as well.  

I called tech support and the dude just wanted me off the phone.  He kept telling me it was our computer which was BS.  

Our connection speeds were 9.1 kb/s   That's like 1995.

I finally managed to get him to schedule for a technician to come over with a modem.  (I told him, I don't want to be driving across town to pick it up at their office, and I they have to come on a Saturday)  Well, he got me scheduled for today.  Turns out it was the modem, which my roomate and I knew all along, and now were getting   7455 kbps or 931.8 KB/sec.

I've pretty much been a lurker here for a long time and I just wanted to take a moment to say that I've been gaming for the last fifteen years and I still think back fondly to all of the posts Hetz was making for MW when it came out. Hell, I HAD to get it because of his enthusiasm.

And now, with a HUGE smile on my face it is happening again. Bethesda owes him. Period.

Now, do I run it on my PC or get an X360 for it....Hmm.....

Thanks Hetz,
