Finally. I've had enough of sequels, create something new

GottaBjimmyb2863d ago

Yup, perfect answer, one that more should learn from. That said I wouldn't be off-put by another elder scrolls game either.

veicht2863d ago

There are new things coming out all the time, from your attitude I would guess you don't play any of them. There is room and a need for both new titles and sequels on the market, don't limit it to one or the other.

Ogygian2863d ago

Yeah, I think Bethesda need a break from Tamriel and the wasteland. Plus, it would be nice to see something new.

Maybe they take their gameplay style into space? Or maybe a pirate game? Maybe a completely new fantasy setting, possibly incorporating steampunk or cyberpunk art.

I'm sure whatever they do will be great. I just can't wait to find out what it is.

ccgr2863d ago

Of course they have the right to decide on what to focus on, just as consumers get to decide if they are interested in buying it or not. Elder Scrolls is a solid series and I look forward to the sequels whenever to do come.

Alexious2863d ago

It will be a while. At least I have Elder Scrolls Online to tide me over!

LexHazard792863d ago

Elderscrolls Online It's the only one I haven't played from the series.

Paytaa2863d ago

Yeah, I pretend that game doesn't exist. Such a waste of resources.

"Elderscrolls Online It's the only one I haven't played from the series."

Same here, but that's because I don't really care for MMOs. If I ever play it, it will be when it becomes free-to-play.

Never played it and quite likely will never play it.

Don't get me wrong. I did like Oblivion and I spent hundreds of hours in Skyrim.

Currently playing Neverwinter which is a free download on the PS4 (you do need PS+ to get online) although the DLC and microtransactions aren't if you are impatient enough to buy them, which IMHO is silly since you can easily level up and pick up items by doing quests (which all RPG's give you).

It is worth getting an extra bag, although you can get one in a few days after collecting and exchanging your astral diamonds (praying to your deity helps) for Zen. Still, if you do a particular quest and you can get an item that allows you to summon a shopkeeper that you can immediately sell your unwanted items to or buy extra items such as potions. What is interesting you can summon a shopkeeper in battle and he/she/it will toss a firebomb at the enemy.

Like every MMORPG this game is not for everyone and you should expect to do a little grinding but surprisingly not that much since it is pretty easy to pick the right type of quests that give you the best experience. You can even play this game solo if you wish or with friends and even join with others to take on more complex/difficult dungeons. You can even form your own or join a guild and you can even do PvP if you wish.

Not bad for a game which is basically free. http://www.playstationlifes...

It wasn't a waste of resources because the team that does the single player ES games are not the same team that did ESO. They are actually two separate teams. Thankfully. I like ESO, well now anyway. It wasn't good when it started.

Seems oddly hostile considering it's mostly just good will from fans. Though I guess from his perspective it feels like badgering.

He's always been a bit of an ass to be honest

Everytime there's a small complaint or criticism he literally goes into his shell and comes out with two f*** off RPG launchers with a cigar in his mouth.

Alexious2863d ago

Yeah, he's not very politically correct.
