GameZone compares screenshots for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to Oblivion, and shows how far the series has advanced visually.
Huge difference in the detail, especially in the faces. It's crazy how much more advanced Skyrim is. Looks great!
Skyrim does look great considering the scale BUT There has been 3 years since Oblivion AND several Bethesda games since on all platforms. We should not be surprised at all.
3 years? you high? Try 5
She's a beauty! I'm literally taking the day off work to play. Gotta love those "personal days"and luckily my boss will be doing the same thing. Heh heh, grown business men skipping work for a game!
5? Try 4. Which also further proves my point. Hahahaha.
Is there any footage or screens from the PS3 version? Worrying it is, perhaps I should get the Xbox 360 version.
No the Ps3 ain't good for open world games
Neither is the 360. PC however...
I'm gonna be doing some rippin and tearin when Skyrim releases. damn those women in oblivion were ugly
And I am going to be a thieving bastard!
thats almost like ps2 vs ps3 difference wow
no more like a ps1 against a ps20 :)
Im thinking an Argonian assasin will be my first toon
Exactly what I was thinking...with some slight mage skills thrown in for good measure.
WOW! Looks amazing! I think all gamers can agree on that.
Well Oblivion was 5 and a half years ago. They've had time to get used to the PS3 and 360 hardware. I think they're cutting the open world up a bit more, reducing the amount of content that is loaded and increasing texture quality on the content that is loaded as a result. We'll know in two weeks.
"I think they're cutting the open world up a bit more, reducing the amount of content that is loaded and increasing texture quality on the content that is loaded as a result" Exactly that.
Can't wait to play it
Yeah these graphics look great but there are draw backs to achieving them. Like Sephiroth said above. Graphics looked amazing in Rage. The open world element got axed, where were the physics to match the graphics?, and the textures loading in EVERY SECOND unless at a stand still... ALL majorly hurt the game! My copy of Rage is getting traded in this afternoon towards Uncharted 3!
Yeah but RAGE is a bad example. While megatextures are great for TEXTURES...it degrades EVERY single other element of the game. I really don't think megatextures are the future for games...
In Rage they may have been better of with smaller textures allowing them to stream faster. Load them in say a 100m radius of the players posistion rather than just what they are looking at. Turning 180 into blurry cliff central was disappointing.
Doesn't look particularly good. A fair bit better than Oblivion, but not staggeringly so. Most of the improvements are in their application of detail.
it will even look so much better with the MODs of the game being released like oblivion
I'm gonna have to trade in my copy of Oblivion now. I don't think I can go back and play that game when Skyrim is better in EVERY single way: visuals, sound, gameplay, story, size, user interface. But I hope Skyrim doesn't do a Rage or Battlefield3. Both had high expectations and both were a little dissappointing. eg) long loading times, bugs and glitches like a plague. (Fallout: Las Vegas) I hope Skyrim does a Batman where expectations are not only met but blown out of the water and make it another Game of The Year Contender.
Can't wait to be playing this on a PC.. Where it's meant to be played. THAT'S RIGHT, I SAID IT. What? sizzle. :P
like i said the mods............
I'm not one for swords and magic, so I may/may not be picking this one up, but I am excited for it soley because of the thought of the prospect of a Fallout 4 made on the same engine.
