Bethseda has released another team video diary for Skyrim, this time based on the world of Skyrim.
Sure is pretty. You can REALLY see the influence of those artists Bethesda finally got around to hiring: this is going to be the most fun to explore open world game since RDR. And when the hell will Steam let us pre-load?
Wow, this looks fantastic. I am ready for you, Skyrim. Let us dance the dance of life.
Looks incredible. I am thrilled to explore the rich world of Skyrim. It was also nice to see a video focused on the story and non-combative elements of the game. The Elder Scrolls series are so much more than swinging a sword and casting a spell (as fun as those things truly are).
Not going to watch it , i want to be blown away but everything i see first time around :D
That looks so freaking cool. One thing...i don't think american accents suit medieval times.
I'm a big fan of the "Babylon 5" method--give each race a real-world accent. It helps to differentiate everyone and provide an easily-recognized layer of independent culture. IIRC, Dragon Age took a similar approach (as did Mass Effect, and Morrowind IIRC). And to be fair, it's not really a medieval game. Not even close, actually.
So agree with you on that, but when i heard the american accent i was like "ohh thats awful" each to their own i guess. Not medieval times..late antiquity timeline maybe? Ah i'm still going to be playing the hell out of this game anyway.
^--Naw, it's a fictional world, they don't share ANY eras with ours. I suppose if you really want to assign an era, post-post-apocalyptic works best. Basically, if you look at the lore, the ancient Dwemer were fairly advanced technologically--they had robots and crap--and then they were wiped out somehow, and technology was stigmatized--thus the dominance of magic in TES culture. Through magic they are able to achieve a standard of living roughly equivalent to Modern-era humankind (that's us, post-1945). Similar to Spira in Final Fantasy X.
AAHH Canary i know its a fictional world, i know it doesn't share any era with ours, I DO KNOW however that Skyrim has Queens, Kings, Castles, Swords, Horse and Carts, Bows and Arrows. So if a friend asked me what type of game is do you think i'm going to tell him/her that "ohh well i would say post-apocalyptic, because if you look at the lore, the ancient...whatever"? No i'm not! Because they would think it was Fallout with magic. GOSH!
Sockeyboy is right, you'd describe the game as a medieval fantasy. Middle ages if you want. It's the most accurate example we can give to the style of the game. It's not like we'd say 'yeah it's a fantasy game based in the modern day' despite any technicalities which may allude this.
Post-post-apocalyptic isn't apocalyptic. And no matter how you cut it, the setting is not medieval. It's High Fantasy. If you say anything other than "high fantasy," you're saying the wrong thing.
Id say they game reminds me more of the Roman empire mixed with lord of the rings. But either way the game really has nothing to do with our world at all so i don't mind the different accents.
I respectfully disagree. I thought the accent sounded fine. His voice made me feel safe :'D
lol you sure. Remember the original assassins creed? Everyone taught Altair's american accent was stupid. But now with Revelations everyone wants them to bring it back.. even though it is the same actor. The same will happen with the Elder Scrolls VI but that is a story for another day
who's gonna be a dragon born on 11.11.11
So when do they start selling those Dragon Born hats with the horns.....I want one. :D Should of included it in the CE for that price.
yeah I want one of those hats. Freakin lucky press members
:O, im guessing thats pc?
I certainly hope not...
LOL i thought the same thing
WHY MUST YOU KEEP TEASING US BETHESDA?!? This has been the longest week...
Two Worlds 2 is better :)
Cool story sister
Okay im gonna be honest with you guys. I rented skyrim for the ps3 ( I can't believe it was there and got away with it ) n honestly fellows, it looks so subHD. I mean it just looks god awful ugly and trust me the game is good but still it looks so Meh. I am so disappointed and don't understand why on the other vids it looks so much better. Edit: I don't know maybe I watched too much pc gameplay and got my hopes up. :(
Cool story... Edit: But they haven't released PC gameplay..only 360.
Actually Bethesda admitted their trailers have been a mixture of console and PC.
I know they have "said"..but I guarantee that if that is true, the "PC portion" of those trailers is most definitely not on max settings, otherwise you'd definitely be able to tell what is console and what is PC..and from all the trailers I've seen, there is no noticeable difference.
I think the fact that they release it all in 720p probably makes it harder to differentiate, still I'm buying it on PC and I'm not expecting to be wowed by the graphics... I know I'll be wowed by the game though!
That's your problem, PS3. They've only showcased this game on the 360, meaning that the PS3 version is more than likely a port.
Take a look. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Here you go. Footage of the PS3 version. XperiaRay
I really hope your just trolling.
Trust me I wish I was bc I am not enjoying the way it looks.
then you're looking at it wrongly
Here's some footage of the PS3 version. It looks very good. http://www.youtube.com/watc... This would explain why the PS3 install size is the same as the PC version. XperiaRay
I cant wait for Skyrim to get in my mailbox in a day or two...but that trailer was just plain boring.
The trailer's meant to show off the world, not the gameplay.
This really got me excited. Oblivion was trash to me because of its nonexistent, unexciting story and watered down attempts at side-lore (though I got used to Morrowind's lack or organization and open-ended reading, so I just expected the same). This story clearly has a purpose beyond derpy looking politicians in generic cookie-cutter pseudo-cities complaining about a big red gate in the front of their yard; this... this is going to be epic.
I dont want to get too excited here, but it seems like they may have captures some of these epic "BATTLE" screens correctly...instead of it looking like 10 copy past guys shoving chopsticks in each others faces. I like it.
I still stand by my words that this is still a striped down elder scrolls game compared to it's predecessors! P.S...Go ahead make up any lame excuse or excuses you can think of to justify paying $59.99 plus tax lolz! Cheers Gamers & Happy Gaming
