Bringing this thread back to life to say tomorrow at 10 AM EST Bethesda is putting up a trailer that's going to have actual gameplay. Can't wait.

Seriously? The excitement in me has traveled to the nether regions, although it has to be said I've already got this on pre-order! I'm that confident it will be just as good if not even more brilliant than Oblivion, I could go without the game play trailer. I lost my xbox virginity with this franchise!

Oh my god.

EPIC.

 

One of the more exciting things for me is there seems to be a more authentic was to assassinating someone to taking out the blade of woe and sneak attacking them. The bow system looks better, not to sure about the staves. They still seem to be almost the same.

 

Although if that is what the combat will be like I am going to spend literally every waking hour on Skyrim. The quests won't be bad either, looks like there'll be better villages than in Oblivion.

 

Also, dual wielding :D.

My impressions, having watched it several times:

 

The sound is just perfect. The character's breathing, the footsteps, the dragon, the sounds of the metal, it's all amazing. And the dragon shout at 1:08 is fantastic. I don't think I can really describe it well enough to do it justice.

 

Third person animations look way better this time around. Playing third person might actually be a viable option this time around. I'm not going to, but it's nice to see that you could.

 

Locations look fantastic. I'm not sure what my favorite part was. The woods around 1:14, the city shot at 1:19, the windmill shot immediately following that, or any of the dungeons.

 

The giant thing looks badass.

 

I forgot the woods shot at 1:29. fudgeing beautiful.

 

The tavern scene owns. You'll miss it if you blink, but in it you can see a sweet assassination, some bard playing music, what is probably a high elf sitting on a bench, and just a pretty sweet looking interior overall.

 

Combat just looks leagues better than Oblivion. Much more action packed, and I like showing off the two handed spell, and the one where everything explodes in all directions.

 

1:44 There's a Nirnroot. Damn.

 

The best part of it for me was most definitely the dragon shout. It just felt so epic when the music came up with it.

Here's a bunch of still shots from the trailer if you want a better look at some parts. Third one looks really nice. Third to last shows the nirnroot.

Album of 28 still shots from the trailer, they all look really good. Much better than the pictures in my last post. Check it out.

I think above all, we'll see the better graphics and tweaks to an already amazing engine. But the narrative is enough to keep the games going really strongly anyway. I did notice when you are looking in the trailer that it skips to some footage of a river? The river looked terrible in comparison to the rest of the graphics, it looked kind of chunky! Really excited for the interactivity with this game, dual wield will really help this game a ton. Narrative looks a little more detailed this time.

 

Is there any word on mounts? I saw part of the trailer seemed to be through the eyes of a dragon or possibly through human eyes in the air?

Well surely they'll improve it. The water in Morrowind is breathtaking, so I would assume this would be even better!

 

I hope you can ride dragons. :D If not there will be mods.

The mods better step up their texture and polygon quality for this game. :D

It also looks like in part of it that possibly you ride the dragon in either first or third person. But the map doesn't seem to be as massive as Morrowind or Cyrodil so I'm not sure if the need for one would really be that massive in this one. I'm expecting more to come underground rather than above. As for the water I bloody hope so I mean just here!

 

I mean this is BEAUTIFUL!

But this, it's so flat!

Part of me wants to revisit the realm of the mad god :(, I hope I can!

I think they'll both get better. Even the forest doesn't have dynamic shading in it and the water WILL be better.

 

I can't wait. I have to have a new computer by then.

Promises, promises! I've got this horrible feeling they'll skimp out on things. It's not that long until production and things, although I do get that it's the very FIRST gameplay trailer. It should be fine, this is my way of trying to kill off my high expectation. I think I'll get it and be severely disappointed.

 

If not, water mods all around!
Yes, for PC. I'm buying it for console and yes I've also only got a mac. Although maybe I'll partition it, although I'm pretty sure Skyrim would destroy my Macbook.

One thing about the water is it's really only the rapids that look bad. Other instances of water in the trailer look much better.

I mean it's not amazing but it looks better here: http://imgur.com/a/Vzazu#9PwoC

I'm sure that it's just from the eyes of the dragon chasing the character in the trailer. Not to mention I believe Howard confirmed dragons won't be rideable in the podcast that gameinformer did.

 

I'm guessing horses will be available as mounts though, since they're definitely in the game.

No. No more nirnroot. Please ;-;

What's wrong with nirnroot? :D

Collecting 100 for a quest. Worst quest in Oblivion imo.

Am I the only person that did this?
