From reading that, it sounds like a lot more steamlined version of Oblivion.
My only real worry about what I have read their is that cutting the attributes from 10 to 3 might make them a bit simple.
Other than that, I'm very excited!


Well cutting attributes isn't there to make it simple, it's there to try to give you more choice throughout the game instead of having to decide exactly what you want to be in the game in a dodgy start sequence.

Here is a 20 Reasons list which is quite interesting |8

If anyone is on the edge then this article from Rock Paper Shotgun is quite good. Referencing how Skyrim could be though of as a more polished Oblivion. This might be a good thing for us Oblivion fans, but I know the more 'hardcore' Morrowind guys won't be happy :/


RPS Chat-o-Think: Skyrim

I recently played three hours of Skyrim, and decided in my madness that the best way to document this was with three random anecdotes. Of course, if you weren’t interested in hypocritical vegetarianism, obsessively playing with the zombie spell or trying to pull off stealth crafting, those might not have given you the overall flavour of the game you’re after. So, let Jim be your proxy interrogator about the wider nature and feel of the fifth Elder Scrolls – y’know, combat, openness, voice acting, exploration, all that jazz…

Jim: I suppose my initial question has to be: how good an open world do you think it is going to be? Open worlds are very much my favourite thing in games, but good ones are SO rare! What’s the feeling here?
Alec: Well, it’s very important to observe that I was a low-level character so only encountered relatively piddling stuff – I don’t know what manner of strange beasts I’d encounter in my wanderings. But it was relatively comparable to the start of Oblivion, once you’re out of that lousy intro quest, and suddenly there’s the freedom to go anywhere.
Jim: Any sense of serious diversity? And also did you get to see anywhere particularly urban?
Alec: I spent quite a lot of time just wandering around, looking in a couple of dungeons, fighting some bandits hiding in ruins, bothering a fisherman sat in an island, peering at a town run by angry elves. O didn’t make it to a major city, no, mostly because I was too obsessed with making hats. But the best bit was getting almost to the top of one of the mountains, which takes quite a bit of trekking. I didn’t find any beasts up there, but the sight of Skyrim below me, through the clouds, was spectacular. Very much an ‘all this is yours, my son’ moment...

Read the rest here.

This is the funniest thing I've seen in a long while.


As long as the dark foundation of our nature, grim in its all-encompassing egoism, mad in its drive to make that egoism into reality, to devour everything and to define everything by itself, as long as that foundation is visible, as long as this truly original sin exists within us, we have no business here and there is no logical answer to our existence.
Imagine a group of people who are all blind, deaf and slightly demented and suddenly someone in the crowd asks, "What are we to do?"... The only possible answer is, "Look for a cure". Until you are cured, there is nothing you can do.
And since you don't believe you are sick, there can be no cure.
