Alright....I admit it. I am a closet geek. I have been waiting for this damn game to come out since Jesus was a private.

How many other fellow gamers out there are waiting for Oblivion....? How many pimply-faced kids and 44 year olds dressed in cloaks are you prepared to stiff-arm in order to escape Best Buy with a copy in your hot little hands?



Oblivion

I have never even heard of that game before...

But I did start playing Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend today.

It should be good. Roommate got me hooked on Morrowind, so I'll probably get Oblivion for PC. . . .

i Tiberian the Half Elf Fighter-Ranger-Paladin will use my +3 Vorpal sword to vanquish the ork.

The ork has an amulet that redirects vorpal sword damage back at the attacker so you loose 30 hit points!





not. but enjoy.

Fable's better than morrowind anyhow.

Good thing I equipped my Amulet of 1337 Sarcasmic Reflection before checking replies.....

Tried WoW...just couldn't get into to it. Graphics to cartoony, gameplay after lvl 60 left a lot to be desired.

BLASPHEMY!

But Fable was pretty good.

What is the big deal with oblivion? Why are people so crazy-go-nuts over it? I played the first morrowind and thought it sucked (I played it all the way through, too).

I haven't bought a computer game in a LONG time, but I'll admit, this game looks really cool...

Don't worry...I'll be picking up today also. I just have to wait until I get home from work before I start playing. I've given my wife fair warning that she might not see much of me for a while

Different.

Not MMOG...single-player. Not level-based/critter killing advancement....i.e. as you perform actions, your attributes increase. Swing your sword alot and you get stronger/more accurate, sneak around alot and you become stealthier, the more locks you pick, the better you get, etc etc etc.

IMHO, yes better than WoW. But WoW never really tripped my trigger anyhow.

Yea, I am picking two copies of it up today... just one for me though.

In a nutshell this is like an rpg crossed with grand theft auto, just much more serious. Replace the cars with horses and there you have it. It also looks stunning...

Every inch of that land is capable of being walked through.



Every singe trinket is capable of being picked up and stolen, stored, stacked on each other, ect.
If people eat at that table (the npc's) you can wait for them to leave and then place a poisoned apple on the table. Come back later and they would be keeled over.
