SystemLink: "A Skyrim forum user has posted nuggets of crisp, golden information regarding Bethesda's latest behemoth in the Elder Scrolls series. Cue epic music as Todd Howard talks 3rd person, weather and Crysis with PC Gamer"
oh lord thank god for the witcher!
I don't know, Oblivion played like an fps with magic so it going cryis 1 way is not bad, i just hope they find way of making interesting side stories like the dark brotherhood; best part of the game.
Oblivion is older then Crysis. Crysis 2 is like Oblivion!!!.Only Different :P
Eh'? I am not sure if I am digging this. -We are watching
that shit is smoke and mirror effects, I want to go everywhere I can see like in Elder Scrolls. Witcher is a knock off of RPG's like these.
Your nickname, and the number of bubbles you have says a lot about you so you don't really have to talk to be judged. And just to add fuel to your fire, Witcher 2 is amazing
Yeeesh, talk about yer quotemines.
Exactly, this quote is taken way out of context for the sake of an attention-grabbing headline.
Lots of this is confusing as the quotes are short and out of context.
Uncharted is alot like Mario Sunshine.
Yeah! He jumps, defeats... things... Yeah..
Nope not in any way im afraid :(
Hopefully you can use powerful magic even if you are something else like a theif. In Oblivion if you were a thief/warrior and wanted to use good magic you would never have enough magicka to cast them because you havent took that specific path or you didn't pick the race/class that was most suited to magic users.
'A Skyrim forum user' Wow, what a great source of information. Let's make an article about it!
He's just written quotes from the interview in PC Gamer Mag. The info is actually from Todd Howard at Bethesda.
I know, which makes this article even worse. Truly lazy 'journalism', and I use the term 'journalism' very,very loosely.
@Kramun Hardly makes it worse.. i dont read that magazine so people like me would never have heard of this if it wasnt for this website...
This is a very strange article.
*cancels out pre-ordered* Of all games to compares too..*shm*
If you honestly believe this game is like crysis beyond the controls then you clearly never played a morrowind game.
It's just gonna be Oblivion on steroids, what else is there that you need to know? Most anticipated game for me in a long time.
Bubbles. Forget all the he said she said. Elder Scrolls never dissapoints.
NEVER indeed! I have played morrowind and oblivion. Fallout 3 and Fallout Vegas. Each one minus vegas had me so engrossed in gameplay for over 2 years. No game I play had me into it for two+ years! I bought the strategy guide for all of them solely to make sure I did absolutely everything. Never disappointing... except for Fallout vegas. But that isn't bethesda's fault.
Not to be negative as i am looking forward to skyrim. They've been claiming to have a more viable 3rd person mode starting with oblivion, then with fallout 3 and so far its been a load of shit. Not that i would ever think about playing it that way. I feel the atmosphere will be much better than oblivion, as will the story. It will be a great game. Now excuse me i have witcher that needs playing
The only time I've used 3rd person is to see what my outfit looks like lol. Like you say, it's not really the way the game should be played anyway. Can't wait for November, probably my most wanted game this year.
I only sometimes switch to third person to better see my surroundings. But, like most people I'm sure, I play the game mostly in first person. Would be cool if it worked really well though.
played third person only in the fallouts I liked what they did with over the shoulder. It was epic on pc. Had no problems played like a charm.
--"So if they play Crysis or anything like that, the mechanics of what we're doing, like interface-wise or controls, is not terribly different." 'Aint nothing wrong with that. Unless this game has some type of game save corrupting R game breaking bug nothings going to stop it, not even Space Aids.
Are you f*cking kidding me? I am so tired of these crap site hit articles. --"So if they play Crysis or anything like that, the mechanics of what we're doing, like interface-wise or controls, is not terribly different." That quote IS THE ONLY PLACE THEY SAY ANYTHING ABOUT CRYSIS!!! And yet this author pulls a headline of "New Skyrim info - "It's not terribly different from Crysis"?!?!?! REALLY? Its ridiculous that this site is even allowed to post here! Even better is the author of this "article" is only basically re-posting a forum post: "We apologize if the quotes seem random, but they are copied from the magazine without much context - full scans of the magazine are not allowed. Still, they're more than enough to gleam new information." ... "You can see some more quotes on the full forum post, for which we have tXXXX2 and PC Gamer to thank." To that I say I completely disagree with this sites analysis that you can gleam info as clearly they can't gleam shit!
LOL! It worked... you commented and read the article.
Yeah, I know... **face palm** I think I am more mad at myself than anything. I knew better.... Oh well. Bubble for making me laugh.
The question is why was this article even created. Also why not just pick up the pc gamer mag. Then it seems like it would be my best choice give a little money to the magazine industry. You know what I think I 'll buy the magazine and keep the article on Skyrim to myself. hahahaha!!! Your right though.
That's like... the last thing I wanted to hear. Saying "it's not terribly different from Oblivion in looks, but it has a gameplay system reminiscent of Morrowind", would have rocked the RPG universe.
I'm sure they are only talking about how in Crysis (for all of you who never played it) you push a button and a wheel pops up allowing you to quickly change the function of your nanosuit (i.e. speed-strength-invisible etc.) thus changing how you play the game at any moment on the fly. Also you can do this with weapons. So Skyrim may allow you you to approach a situation and switch swords, battle stands, armor, spells, etc on the fly to defeat different enemies using your entire inventory and as a way to vary your game play on the fly. Which is much better than changing load outs between stages or hiding in a corner to get yourself together. But why stop at Crysis and why not make it like Modern Warfare 2 and have perks, kill streaks, Lag, and tactical Nukes. Actually I'm joking right now!
I just wanted a mod friendly Skyrim so we can fix whatever needs fixing.
