Runes The Elder Scrolls - Games and Such

First off it's nice to heat that Skyrim will be out in "11-11-11" (Urrg, I hate it when they do that), though what's everyones opinons about the Elder Scrolls series to begin with?

Especially with the last two games that became very popular; Morrowind and Oblivion. (Though in all honestly Oblivion seemed to copy its expansions from Morrowind)

What was your experience with the vast ashland of Vvardenfell, who'd ya join, etc?

Same can be said for Oblivion, but factions have little instances within this.
Also: What do you hope Bethseda will make with Skyrim that they haven't already said (dual-wielding, children, etc) but do you think they should have some references to games like Morrowind and Oblivion to fill some lore? Create new factions, or even add a complexity to them.

And because I'm just very excited here are the lyrics of the 'endsong' at the end of the trailer if anyone didn't venture into Youtube or see Bethseda correct all the people.

"Dovahkiin Dovahkiin
Naal ok zin los vahriin
wah dein vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal
ahrk fin norok paal graan
fod nust hon zindro zaan
Dovahkiin fah hin kogaan mu draal"

I though it said for the king sometimes that song

In retrospect we should probably ask for a admin to set a forum about other non blizzard series... maybe?

EDIT: The plot is also about a world destroying dragon, except this one is a devourer of time

I've never played any games in the series and have heard conflicting opinions that the games are great and that they are terrible.

Same here, I'm a pretty big RPGlover, yet I'm a bit embarrased to say I haven't picked up any of them. I got friends who call it(Oblivion) the best RPG ever and some who complain that it was terribly buggy and overall frustrating game. Somehow it just doesn't appeal to me in the way many other RPGs do. I think it's partially because its mainly done in a first person perspective, whilst being mostly melee and partially the overall feel about it that just doesn't feel right. I do hope the new one can change that though.

Cat person vampire assassin that can oneshot you from halfway across the continent with a single sniper bowshot.



No I'm not making that up. At all.

You can do it in more cameras is just more convenient in the first person view(and far more personal)

I played Oblivion with the wrong expectations I guess.

I entered it like, wishing to be blown away by character depth and an intricate plot.

Well if that is in the game I never saw it because well, it was so open and the combat was weird and the dialoge option made me wanna cry and the PC seemed just... off somehow.

But some other people have loved its complete open world

Skids taps Megatron's Autobot badge.

How has being an Autobot in any way prevented you from doing exactly what you want? Because if the answer is "it hasn't"—then nothing you've said or done in the last six months counts for anything.

They are awesome, and for pc even better, there's a reason why the fallout new vegas got extra points in most reviews, the ability to mod the game is very good, and the mod community in bethesda games is strong, so if there's a particular part of the game you don't like, you can bet your ass that there somebody who modded it out for you, or at least tried

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPPF9...eature=related



EDIT: also the music with lyrics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mK1jb...eature=related
Quote:
For the king! For the king!

For the sake of Skyrim!

For our land, for our homes!

For the Hrothgar's Blood!

For the Nords, for the Gods

For the sole single son!

Dovahkiin, our king

Who will dawn in

FIRE!

Actually you have the incorrect lyrics, which is actually sung in Draconic language which has been known since the first trailer.

EDIT: 2 songs in one?

It is draconic and not supposed to sound like english.
When you know what is sung you probably stop hearing english words. It's perfectly normal to misinterpreted words in unknown languages as words you know. Dovahkiin for example really sounds like "For the King" if you do not know what is sung.

I'm pretty sure the whole song is in english, i mean if i could only hear some parts in english, fine it would be in Bethesda made up language, but it's clearly says
...For the sake of skyrim, for our land for our home, for the High Hrothgar blood,... for the sole single son...

The fact that you can hear the name of a ingame location in the song in english even make it more believable that the song has double lyrics

edit: no it's not skyrim the ingame location that i mentioned in the song

So my friend and I are going to make a Let's Play of Skyrim once it comes out, and I just got a terrible idea.


Roll a Redguard and play him as Bill Cosby. Every time he does a dragonshout, shout Cosby style gibberish into the mic. Great idea or best idea?

I ordered Oblivion from the internet a few days ago. If I don't like it then I won't be your friend anymore.

I have been looking for good mods for Oblivion. Half of the mods seem to be about nude models, sexifying the game or creating realistic breast bouncing physics. I don't want sex mods. Are these the people who have yet to discover real porn on the internet?

Bow firing speed in Skyrim is based on the weight of the bow. Isn't it nice how they don't tell you something like that...

Elder Scrolls MMO maybe.

Could be interesting. Several hundreds years before what we've played, so as to give it a buffer zone and all that jazz.

Oh fuck. I don't know about this. I don't know about this at all.

It could be fucking awesome. But...the lore is what makes Elder Scrolls so great. Having a bunch of psychopaths on the loose might cause complications.

Unless it was during the Dragon Break. That might work. Nobody knows what the fuck was going on then, anyway.

But I don't know about this.
