    Looks amazing, can't wait. The Radiant AI system seems really interesting, could probably spend hours just watching the NPC's interact.

    And then kill them.

    You left out the most important piece!

    Kill them - and then take their stuff.

    It seems odd that normal npcs like shopowners can level up and gain skills.Other than that it looks great.


  • Registered Users Posts: 820 ✭✭✭Niall - Dahlia


    I'd see that as a plus point to be honest. I like the idea of every NPC working independently towards their own personal goals. May seem odd now, but I reckon it'll be standard in all future RPG's.

    I don't like the new compass though. And I don't like how you can't attack while on horseback! :mad: Grr...

    I've been waiting for this game for months.

    But that video...

    At the very end of the game the shop keeper that was in the very first dinky little corner trader you saw appears. "Mwuahhaha puny fool"

    I like the idea of a level 50 shopkeeper...

    True...but the Christmas holidays are a great opportunity to play the game 24 hours a day!

    I'll be getting it first thing it hits the shelves, bugs or no bugs!

    Me to. There will be no waiting.

    And apparently every predicted date so far is in November. 25th is most likely.

    I have a radeon XT850 and I expect it to handle everything very well.

    Does the XT850 have pixel shading 3.0 and all that other marketing jargon that will make oblivion look like the trailer. If so what price and wheres the best place to get a card

    Gah! I was really looking forward to playing this for Christmas. :( Looks like Febuary or March... :(
    Today, Take-Two Interactive revised its earning estimates for the fiscal year of 2005 and 2006. The company now expects roughly $1.18 billion in net sales and $0.55 in diluted net income per share for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2005. The company reduced its guidance because Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories for PSP will not release in fiscal 2005 "in certain European territories" and also because it "reflects reduced sales of catalog products and lower than anticipated initial retailer orders of new releases, which have resulted in lower than expected sales in October of Take-Two's published titles and in the Company's Jack of All Games distribution business."

    Take-Two expects $1.35 to $1.45 billion in net sales and $1.15 to $1.45 in diluted net income per share for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2006. The report also noted that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for PC and Xbox 360 has been pushed back from the first quarter to the second quarter of 2006, meaning it will release February 2006 at the earliest.

    Nice post there on the graphics cards Niall, I'm currently in the market for one myself proved quite useful.

    I actually just reinstalled Morrowind, going to give it another go.
    I must say Oblivion does indeed look great. I'm curious has anyone played the expansions for morrowind are they any good ?

    :D Did the exact same thing myself, been playing through it the last week, this time with a few player mods (excellent face and body models, my own house, improved textures, children to maim and kill...ahem...:D ) and not doing the storyline at all.

    Haven't played the expansions though. Seen them fairly cheap in a few stores (can't remember if they were bundled with Morrowind though), might pick them up while I'm waiting for Oblivion.
