I've been eagerly awaiting the next Elder Scrolls for 5 or 6 years. As I've said many times before, Fallout was great and - by all rights - a better game than Oblivion. But I got so much more wrapped up in Oblivion's atmosphere and had much more fun exploring. IN large part, I'm sure, because there were more varied locales. The wasteland did look great and it makes sense that that's all there would really be, but its still less enthralling to me.

But to have all of Fallout's refinements - many (often hilarious) dialogue choices, significantly better voice acting, more inventive quests, etc. in an Elder Scrolls game is going to completely destroy my social life. And I wouldn't have it any other way

AND I AM SO &#$%ING GLAD ITS NOT AN MMO!

significantly better voice acting
THIS. I loved Oblivion but oh my god, the same five voices. ALL. THE. TIME.

GameInformer (I think) is supposed to have February issue revealing more details. The best part?

Rumor is they aren't going to use that shitty old engine anymore. For all that is good and holy, please!

My only request would be a better character creation system. It is a job and a half to get an Oblivion character that doesn't look butt ugly.

Looking at how character design and graphics have evolved from Oblivion to New Vegas, I expect something really good.

Its more than a rumor. http://twitter.com/nickbreckon/statu...5054991069184#

(Nick Breckon is Bethesda's Community Manager. A later twitter post says that the new engine was built internally.)

I can't state how many times my little brother and I designed a character in TES IV only to change the skin color, or something, and have it go totally, irreversably wrong. (Not to mention, if you fuck with the sliders, you can make an elf with a nose the size of a hatchet). SO glad it's on a new engine, and I am excite.

IIRC I had a pretty good looking Dunmer. But yeah, could be easier. (Though, Demon's Souls has THE most impossible-to-make-a-not-hideous-character system ever.)

They did write a good proper engine for Oblivion back when, producing the prettiest picturez evar on my PC <3. So I'm sure they've got that covered.

As for Fallout vs Oblivion: Fallout had quality, Oblivion had quantity. Although both shared a bit of that, . Fallout had what, 7 quest / story lines or something? Almost all content in there was somehow relevant to one of the questlines, whereas Oblivion had a lot of (copy / pasted) caves and locations. Which got repetitive, yes, especially considering most didn't really reward you with anything good.

I have to be honest. While Oblivion pwned in terms of graphics and everything, I'm pretty sure I spent more time on its predecessor, Morrowind. Might be the atmosphere in that one, or because I've become a mass consumer and/or very critical since then.

As for the MMO bit, I was (almost) sure they were going for it this time, . However, they're also having another studio work on a Fallout MMO - I wouldn't be surprised if they sold the rights to a TES MMO to another studio too. Which, of course, would be the suck.

I still see a lot of potency in a TES-based MMO. As long as they don't make it too massive.

My only request would be a better character creation system. It is a job and a half to get an Oblivion character that doesn't look butt ugly.
I have another. Dear Bethesda, please give us hawrdkawr players an option at the start of the game to skip the entire intro sequence, create / select a character class, give a handful of basic equipment and get the fuck out of the intro bit. Morrowind's was bearable (SPOILER) (STAND UP THERE YOU GO YOU WERE DREAMING I HEARD WE'VE REACHED MORROWIND I'M SURE THEY'LL LET US GO THIS IS WHERE YOU GET OFF FOLLOW ME UP TO THE CENSUS OFFICE AH YES WE'VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU ASDFI ASIFJASFD JASDFI ASART KKASKGFK FQQw''''''), but Oblivion's just took forever, which doesn't encourage people to start over much.

Also, please change the character creation thing so you can make actually attractive womenz. In another game, adding a pretty race made that race the most played one within a few months, even though they have no significantly added benefit towards others.

Keep the physics thing though, and add more gore. I liked killing random people, stripping them and putting them in awkward positions. Dismembering them too, in Fallout. Thus, please please us sick fucks, add a serial killer class / profession and game mechanics for that.

I'm pretty sure there's a rape mod for previous Bethesda games.

They can do whatever they want as long as it isn't a main entry in the series (FFXI/XIV). Getting absorbed and "role playing" is what I loved to much about Oblivion. More than 9000 people asking 'how I mine for fish' kinda kills the mood. And even role play servers aren't much better.

I always made Breton characters, and I could get a passable character but still. Bleh. The horrible hair options don't exactly help, either. I hated spending for-fucking-ever in the character creation screen trying to get something decent.

Or just come up with a shorter intro, period. I know there's some mod on the PC where you can actually start off in Anvil rather than doing that long as intro so you don't even have to start the main quest if you don't want to.

Shit, wish I coulda done that. I have barely touched the main quest in that game. Being a thief is where it's at.

The intro part of Oblivion is long only in the first gameplay. You can save just before reaching the sewer's exit and keep that savepoint for next playthroughs. At least that's what I've always done.

I always made dark elves, cause I love looking blue and having red eyes.
