    Use chemistry. That might help.

    MS is so big that they can afford take losses in the short-term. Bethesda has been so bent-on making short-term gains and investing heavily in marketing, as opposed to nothing in writing and developing an updated engine, that this piece of news may ease their perceived incentives to maximize short-term gains. That's what I hope for, but then I hope for very little, and I'd rather support projects like Fallout Yesterday than being optimistic about the psychopaths running these companies.

    Looking cool doesn't make up for those crystals spawning the enemies that use that armor set, making you having to kill i think three of them to collect a heart from each to close the crystal because the crystal keeps spawning them until you close it. And because those enemies are damage sponges due to the terrible level scaling, they are obnoxious.

    Oblivion isn't 100% bad. My rant about those crystals reminds me that Shivering Isles is actually not terrible. If Oblivion had a much better combat system, had everything it cut from Morrowind, no awful level scaling, and the Shivering Isles's map was made bigger to have more content, i honestly wouldn't have much of an issue with that game. Shivering Isles feels like the last time they gave a shit, even if just a tiny bit. There, i said something positive about a post-Morrowind Bethesda game.

    But yes, i'll meet you at the flagpole. We'll settle this with fists.

    The quests are better than Skyrim at least but Skyrim is literally flash-game tier in quest structure so it is the absolute floor.

    If you dont like tes then you are just old, jaded and there is no pleaseing you. Take the game for what it is as opposed to what it is not?
    If I want to think about philosophy and the nature of man then I will go read The Will to Power, not hear about a fantasy interpretation of it from some game writer dork.

    Buncha damn prunes on high horses.

    It was, I just think they tried to do more than tech at the time could handle, or went beyond their budget. Only the central island was in the game.

    If anything, it's the best Dune game we'll get.

    No one here besides one person said they didn't liked TES. Last time i checked, TES isn't just Oblivion and Skyrim.

    If you mean Oblivion and Skyrim, what they are is precisely the problem.

    *hits Toronto in the head with his cane* Talk about Arena ya idgit.

    And here is a thing I once heard somebody say.

    "With the Civil War between the Imperials and Storm Cloaks, the plotting by the Elves to sow chaos and an evil force returning to destroy the world. I got to say that Skyrim reminds me of Game of Thrones but with Dragons"

    This would make sense if they meant season 8 of Game of Thrones since Skyrim and the last season of Game of Thrones are in the same level of quality.

    So if I set a game in the middle of the Gobi Desert and put almost nothing in there to make it interesting, that's perfectly fine because that's what real life is like? LOL I think you forgot how games work.

    Oh no this right around when Skyrim came out. I think Game of Thrones came out around the same time, so the within the first couple seasons of the show. this had to do with the person thinking Skyrim had better political Intrigue when compared to The Witcher 2; a game they have admitted to never playing. It was just one of those stupid things that burns an impression into your brain so whenever a Skyrim apologist shows up I remember this.
    Since you are having a hard time understanding what is being said. Complaining about Nevada being flat is just as stupid somebody complaining about the Gobi being filled with dunes. Best bring your A game next time, Tardlinger.

    I would go and say the expected "Fans of Skyrim make up the dumbest shit", but that's their MO since the game's release.

    I think it is a Bethesda Drone thing. I've brought it up before but this one about how Fallout 3 is better than the first two games takes the cake.

    "Fallout 3 is better since it is an FPS and it is like looking through my eyes"
