=( I loved the dark brotherhood in oblivion

megacowdung2561d ago

Me too so I'm still joining it. Why should I listen to words on a computer screen.

Fylus2561d ago

If the Dark Brotherhood faction has another "House Party" quest... Nothing... NOTHING will keep me from joining.

Spitfire_Riggz2561d ago

That was so sick lol. You really felt like a serial killer taking everyone into a room... closing the door... planting a poisoned apple or two in some pockets.. LMAO

ViciousHamster2561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

Maybe I will finish the questline first then retire from being the hero and become an assassin and kill everyone I met during my quest for justice muahahahah >:)

NukaCola2561d ago

Dark Brotherhood in Oblivion was awesome sauce. I get the idea why you may want to avoid them. They want to kill people, which can mean quest will be unavailable. I perszonally will probably play as neutral as I can, to get as much out of the entire game, and then on my next playthrough, go balss to the wall mad, joing the Brotherhood and stop caring about my choices.

These better not be spoilers...

Pro_TactX2561d ago

If you are concerned about the article possibly containing spoilers, then just don't click the link.

kcuthbertson2561d ago

No..that's not how it should work...the article should clearly state whether or not it has spoilers...

Pro_TactX2561d ago

Complaining about how it should work is pointless. I agree, it should work that way, but I am a realist. The reality is that it doesn't work that way. If you don't want to read spoilers, then stay away from articles that cover the game.

Korix2561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

You call yourself a realist huh?
In reality, it would be easy for the contributer of this article to state whether or not the article contains spoilers - even to what degree.
It's very easy, not time consuming, and helps a lot of people determining if they should read it, and contributers are already doing it all the time. You know why? Because it's not an unrealistically high expectation.
All you are, is a pessimist. And you're not even in touch with reality, as people are already saying if the articles they put up here contain spoilers.

Pro_TactX2561d ago

I am a realist. I am fully aware that it is easy for the contributor to put spoiler warnings up. I am fully aware that some people already do that. I am also fully aware that not everyone does, and the only way to completely protect yourself from reading spoilers is to avoid the articles in the first place.

You are justifying why people should put spoiler warnings up, and I agree with you. However, arguing about what should be does not make it so.

You are arguing for the ideal situation. I am arguing that the ideal situation is not the reality.

HardCover2561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

In reality, you're both wasting your time arguing perspectives on life instead of sending a private message to the user who submitted this article.

A little bit can go a long way.

RedDead2561d ago there spoilers? XD

F**k that, Dark Brotherhood are awesome!

Pro_TactX2561d ago

I don't care what the consequences are. I am joining the Dark Brotherhood. That was my favorite quest line in Oblivion.

Spitfire_Riggz2561d ago

I especially loved the friday the 13th easter egg!

Canary2561d ago

Considering how even games that try to sell themselves based on player choice (Dragon Age, Mass Effect, etc.) don't have much in the way of consequences, I wouldn't expect much from Skyrim.

I'm sure if you've got the stats (assuming guild line quests actually require the right skills this time) you can be the head of the Mages and Thieves guild and the Dark Brotherhood.

Bethesda games are not about choice. They're about "freedom,"--or, rather, letting the player do EVERYTHING he or she wants to do (which frequently means zero permanent consequences for anything). That's been their credo forever.
