Head over to IGN, they have some in-game impressions from E3. Game is going to melt faces, let them congeal, reshape them, then melt them again.

And they're saying it will come out this winter, which means I might just be buying a 360 at launch, as this remains my most anticipated next-gen game. Halo 3? Hell, gimme Oblivion!

Yeah i agree Oblivion is a big factor in my purchase. I think that i spent the most time of any game on my xbox was elderscrolls III. I was in love with that game. Oblivion is going to be ridiculously awesome

Word up, Casba. One of my first Xbox purchases, and it remains one of my favorite games of all time, DDE's or not. Never felt so 'free' in a game, GTA or what have you. I just hope they don't dumb the game down so much that the hardcore Morrowind lovers are left wanting. I know the game looks freaking amazing, but w/o a bajillion quests, a ton of guilds to join (and become leader of), a monstrous world to explore (w/ no load times), and thirty zillion pages of text to read, I might just be dissapointed.

So, yeah, gimme hundreds of hours of sandbox gameplay, and total immersion, and I'll be playing nothing else for a long time (unless TFLO or FFXI ships at launch, then I might be divided).

Anyhow, here's to a GOTY contender, if not RPG of the year.

:cheers:

From what I read at IGN the other day, seems like they're shooting for a winter release this year. That would pretty much coincide w/ the 360 launch, yeah?

Woah that E3 trailer is incredible.

Morrowind was probably the one game besides Halo I was really addicted to, and it really never got old cause there was so much to do.

But it looks like you won't be able to create your custom character- thats a bit dissapointing :(

Apparently launch, I watched the vid at E3 quite a few times, I'm wondering pc or 360 though :)

I think the last thing Bethesda would change is to not allow people to customize their characters.
