No.....Spell making


The best part about being a mage, when you had enough Magicka, was that you could create powerfull spells that best suited you.

What's a matter Bethesda was it going to seem too complicated for a "new audience"

This has been known for months, and they're beefing up enchanting to make up for it.

While I will miss some of the cool custom spells I used to make, it's understandable with the new spell animations. Back when every spell was just a bright blob in Oblivion, spellcrafting was easy to implement, but now spells actually look like their elements, so it makes sense that creating a system for crafting them would be more difficult.

gaffyh3082d ago

I did use enchanting a little more, but it was awesome that you could make special spells for yourself. Didn't know it had gone :(

Heartnet3081d ago

Now now dont make excuses ;)

Easy to add the animation and the right effect do custom spells.. many games do it and works fine :) Tw2 for Example :D

inveni03081d ago

Yeah, this really sucks. I had crafted this awesome fire spell in Oblivion. There was nothing nearly as powerful in the entire game. I used it constantly. I hope Skyrim doesn't turn out to be a gimped version of Oblivion, because I'm really looking forward to Skyrim.

DualConsoleOwner3081d ago

They made armor 1 piece item.... it used to be like 8 pieces.

It seems like they are just trying to make it more casual...

PC version will still get these sorta spells at some point at least, Overpowered, but always fun to mess around with

Meh, give it a month and someone will mod it into the game. Besides, there's plenty of other stuff here to make me completely forget about the inability to craft our own spells.

ThanatosDMC3082d ago

I loved making projectile fatigue magic in Oblivion with something damage.

Darrius Cole3081d ago

Not having the ability to write your spells does absolutely SUCK.

It was the best part of the game for me. I played a 100% pure mage. And there simply were not enough pre-designed spells in the game for a 100% pure mage to have a complete spellbook.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

the game to kill all console games.

I aint trolling, but I did try to warn people not to get too excited because it is possible Bethesda could screw up....

InNomeDiDio3082d ago

On PC it can only be a great experience.

Heartnet3081d ago

thats true :) although only cuz its a bad game and only Mods could fix it :)

LadyGaga3082d ago

The game looks too good to not cut significant content out on consoles.

Heartnet3081d ago

Who said anything bout consoles?

SilentNegotiator3082d ago (Edited 3082d ago )

Careful what you say; Bethesda is one of those "infallible" devs/pubs.

They could remove the game part of the game and still receive praise for their 'game' to high heaven as they through around their marketing dollars in a parade.

Type "Greatest thing ever" and move on....if you know what's good for you, lol.

kramun3081d ago

They've made some great games, I'm not sure what you're going on about really. Yes their games have bugs because the scope of their games are huge, but they are still fantastic rpgs.

Find me another rpg like Morrowind or Oblivion, or any of the other Elder Scrolls games. You won't be able to.

Neko_Mega3082d ago

Well I better be able to make my stuff magical. Because being able to make heavy boots help you walk on water was fun.

Jesus Boot is what I called them lol.

Neko_Mega3082d ago

Why do people disagree? No one like adding effects to their armor and weapons??

I think it was a awesome idea, heck that is why I got it for 360 (Would have got it for PC if I had a good PC at that time).

DaTruth3081d ago (Edited 3081d ago )

You mentioned Jesus in the presence of nerds! Their socially awkward status and long term virginity is obviously Gods fault, that's why he doesn't exist!

Also, their long term virginity would be longer if it were not for prostitutes, whom God is against!

lMHl3081d ago

cause 'jesus boot' boots is the only reason I can think of or maybe they think its blasphemy

BeOneWithTheGun3082d ago

I did the same thing! Then I would go to Imperial City, attack guards then run to the water and as they tried to swim to me I would just jump up and down and slice them with my sword.

The wait for this game is killing me.

Silencer-143081d ago

Lol poor guards

In a oblivion I enchanted a hood, boots, pants, bracers, and shirt to have 20% chameleon so is be 100% invisible, then I went on a rampage and went from town to town killing everything and everyone, everywhere muahaha......good times I hope the chameleon spell stays in skyrim :D

KingDustero3082d ago

All of these sound great!

"You can persuade various random NPCs to accompany you and they feel like fleshed out, interesting companions."

I'm sure I'll be having a lot of fun with this one.... It'll make it a lot easier to get rid of people without others noticing.

Between this, Dark Souls and Uncharted 3 I'm just not going have enough time to complete each of them.

InNomeDiDio3082d ago

Hmm, you should focus on Skyrim. What I've seen and read it'll be amazing.

KingDustero3082d ago (Edited 3082d ago )

So you're saying Uncharted 3 and Dark Souls won't be amazing games?

All of them will be great and I'll be spending hundreds of hours in each.

There isn't just one killer game to get this year and it'll be a tough choice for which one is GoTY.

Heartnet3081d ago

Dark souls looks cooler than Skyrim :) Only natural.. there better developers than them :)

InNomeDiDio3081d ago

Skyrim > Uncharted 3 and Dark Souls

Sorry, but that's fact

DaTruth3081d ago

That's the reason I'm not considering any other games besides Dark Souls, Uncharted 3 and maybe Skyrim(I would consider Skyrim more, but I doubt it will be half the game on consoles)

Jacks_Medulla3082d ago

Why must it be so far away?
