Bethesda announces impressive sale figures for their fantasy RPG.
That's impressive numbers. No wonder Bethesda prefer making/launching Elder Scrolls games then Fallout games.
I love both Oblivion & Skyrim. But I hate that there are only a handful of voice actors used. At times it sounds like it's the same 3 people doing all the voices! Obviously in an open world game not every character can be distinctive but it would be nice if Bethesda used some of their money to pay for more people.
The problem is how they cast actual actors instead of professional voice actors who are use to voicing multiple characters to save money. They're gonna run I to the same issue with the MMO because of the voice cast they chose.
I agree about Oblivion. But, they used many more actors in Skyrim. Sure, you still hear some repeats, but it's nowhere near as bad.
I always find it odd that you often hear different voices saying the exact same lines. They could have mixed that up a bit.
I honestly think Skyrim sold more than the Fallout games due t better advertising.
Not only that, which is annoying, but they will have characters that sound so bland and don't seem like they are actual voice actors.
Well, if that's the case and Bethesha's not making a fallout game and focusing on next elder scroll single player launch, they should at least let another studio(obsidian) make it and give the guys(@obsidian) full engine resources and enough development time.
I personally think elder scrolls online is there next elder game then fallout. Meaning, instead a single player elder scrolls. I don't know. All I know is I can't wait for fallout.
That's nice now start making tes 6 please
Hope they already have. I want it in 2015.
No i'd rather wait 5 years like we always have so in 2016...DAMN it's 2014 already?! This came out in 2011!!
I'm pretty sure Fallout 4 is next.
I hope so! Still playing F3 and New Vegas, love em.
Well, they're making that online game, but I don't know if I would consider that a full game, since subscription-based online games usually have some sort of way to trick you out of your money, and milk the cash cow a bit too much. Don't get me wrong, I love Skyrim and the other Elder Scrolls games, I just don't know if Online will live up to it's predecessors.
So sky is the limit? What a terrible joke
Congrats on your milestone with Skyrim, Bethesda! I wonder how many copies TESO will sell..
at 8 quid a month or whatever nowhere near 20 million
Agreed. If release is just around the corner, and the beta gameplay won't change much, it won't do well. The gameplay is just...really poor. It's like they took Skyrim and dumbed it down. And the fact that it's going to be £8.99 a month or something? Sorry. Pass.
If it sells 1/3 as many it will make a ton of money. Heres to hoping they find the balance. And I hope ppl dont just write it off from the jump. Mmo's almostb aalways get better if the devs listen. ESO could b great. As I said though I am a little worried that it'll b too much mmo for some and not enough for others. I sure hope theres a ton of customization for the hardcore crowd. Font launch without enough endgame content or a dungeon finder.
I'm not worried because I'm sure Bethesda will amaze us all, also not to mention that TESO could win the largest game award since it's going to include the whole Tamriel continent!
if they drop the monthly fee i'll buy it straight away
That´s nice not buying it tough i just want fallout 4
You should buy it. You can get it for dirt cheap. The only reason I bought it was because the next Fallout wasn't coming fast enough. I don't regret my purchase one bit though, because it's a fantastic game. There is one problem though... the bugs. Even after all of Bethesda's patches, the games still has occasional crashes and glitches. If you get it on PC you can get unofficial patches that help. I own it on PC and PS3.
That's alot of copies. Great sales for a great game.
Since you blocked me like an immature child after your little rant on the PM system. Here's my reply to it "Blah Blah Blah, Wah, Wah, Wah...yeah ok then....whatever you say little buddy" Troll You wonder why you have one bubble
Nice, this game deserves that success
This game derserves every sale it has had so far!
One of the best games I ever played. Congrats to Bethesda!
well deserved, one of the best western RPG's around.. yeah it has flaws and bugs.. but what game doesn't.
Oh, man. I can only imagine how mind-blowing The Elder Scrolls 6 will be. A world made with next-gen tech in mind. *salivates*
This game rocked. A few steps down from oblivion, but overall, a huge accomplishment. I simply cannot wait for the next entry.
skyrim is the first rpg i spent countless hours with. yes the game had some flaws but overall i really really enjoyed it.
Horrendous combat breaks the game for me. I hope they improve it in the next game.
Early on there I hated the game. It would break just by opening doors. I must have mashed F5 like 30 times an hour. Hell, the game is still buggy on the 360 with some of the PC commands showing up for some reason. A year or two later the game is a blast. I just wish they'd done a better job with the dlc. Not only was the dlc meh, I had long out leveled everything in the game before bumping into the first Dragonborn who was a bit of a pushover. I know people are a fan of Fallout but I really hope the skip it and drop ELder Schrolls 6.
They should use that money to make an engine that incorporates better combat and movement animations, doesn't easily have scripts become messed up and not work, better effects and facial animations etc
maybe if they make the next a good game can sell the double.
This is AWESOME news. More developers NEED to focus on the Open world RPG genre RPG's in general!
Well deserved. Hope The Witcher 3 does good as well. Big RPGs are getting more rare as costs skyrocket. I'm just glad the genre is surviving.
Looking forward to Witcher 3. Big budget RPGs are great, but it would be nice for some lower budget or at least not as large maps every now and then. I know people keep pushing for bigger and better, but if the game has hours of game play and a rich story, I don't think it needs to have a large map...because with larger maps, often they are trying to fill the map with whats often the same mission with a few details changed.
I don't care what anyone says, I think it's the BEST TES in the series. TES games are the type that can create great nostalgia for people, therefore people will play favorites with whatever entries they started at. I started with Oblivion, then played Skyrim, then played Morrowind. Morrowind is insanely overrated. It has not aged well, though I can't wait for Skywind to be finalized.
That's nice, Bethesda. Now fix the PS3 version.
Congrats to Bethesda and I love all the PC mods so congrats to the PC modders as well.
