    Yeah, I like that too. There's a story to each one.

    I like the setting too. If I recall it correctly, it's set two centuries after Oblivion and after the Empire was de facto conquered (or at least beaten into submission) by the elven Thalmor. Who are basically fantasy Nazis, except they don't genocide people, but beat them into submission. It's not too overt though. I like the subtlety here and the way political conflicts are painted.

    I've heard him do other voices and he's o.k, I think he was told to do aloof anti social and couldn't pull it off. My brother couldn't stop laughing when talking to him though.

    Might as well wack up some of the sceens I've taken as well, they're a tad cleaner than Tags.

    Yeah, anti-aliasing makes all the difference. But I REGRET NOTHING.

    They want to eradicate men from the surface of the planet, I don't think it can get any more genocide-y. ;)

    I haven't got to that point yet. Is it stated anywhere? I recall the Thalmor waging war against mankind to control them, but genocide?

    I've read it in one of the ingame books somewhere, I unfortunately can't recall what the name was. :( But yes, it was definitvely stated that they want human races eventually to be extinct. In the game you meet some Thalmor later, I think there I took that book with me. Will check it when I play it next time.

    Don't worry, Ausdoerrt. The game looks nothing like on Tagaziel's screenshots.

    After I managed to bear UI, I've actually played it quite a lot. Am I crazy or this game is actually pretty good? Definitely a major step-up from Oblivion.

    I am actually hurt. What's so bad about them? Except for AA and aniso, I'm running the game on full details.

    Relax. It's just that the game looks much much better. Maybe it's AA and Reflect turned off.

    Maybe some creative modder will make it happen once the Creation Kit is released.

    yeah ... so sad that Oblivion was such a boring game. It had some great mods.

    Anyway. I am sure people will get mods out where you can "transform" in a Dragon or something like that.

    I assume by lasdt four games you mean morrowind, oblivion, FO3, and skyrim. I wouldn't really call them fugly. Generic maybe, but they were well rendered and the animations are ok for games of these scales. I don't really expect to be attracted to any of them though, I mean it is a game and all. Some more variety within races would be welcome though.

    depends in what you define as "fugly". NPC's (and your own character) look so much better than in Oblivion. it's worlds apart, really. Skyrim might not be the most beautiful game by todays standards but the weird plastic doll thing they had going on in Oblivion is gone. in Skyrim characters look a lot more realistic.
