I didn't know that. I am never sleeping again in Oblivion.

Also, just finished the Thieves Guild story. I thoroughly enjoyed it, though the beginning of the last mission was incredibly boring. Three hours of running around in the dark fighting nothing but skeletons and zombies - two of the weakest* enemies in the game, so far. Now I might do the Fighters Guild quest. Was going to do the Mages Guild story but I got kicked out and have to find 20 somethings and 20 vampire dusts. Which is funny, because in the TG quests there were many vampires, and I didn't bother to collect the dust, because I didn't think they'd come in handy. *Facepalm*

By weakest I mean least interesting. They're tough to kill, but only because it's time consuming


If you go exploring there are vampire caves and in the Imperial City there is a vampire "hunters" organization that gives you a quest to hunt a vampire and the lair has a fair few vampires I believe (if you make the choices that cause you to join the organization at the end of the quest they also give you a reward in gold for each vampire dust you bring them).

If you're on PC I'd recommend Martigen's Monster Mod. It limits the level scaling so you still see weak enemies even at the highest levels (no more undead caves full of nothing but lich kings). It adds more bad guy types not found in unmodded game (I think Balrogs are one type) and a lot of other miscellaneous changes. While I didn't like all of the changes it was overall a very good mod.

(I would download my mods from planet elderscrolls since they're all checked for viruses before being uploaded; the one downside is it isn't like Skyrim where Steam installs the mods for you, with Oblivion you have to do things manually).

Really? I had no idea there was such an organisation. I'll have to seek them out next time I'm in Imperial City. Although that may be a while; I'm currently in the Shivering Isles. It may just be a poor memory, but Sheogorath is a lot more fun in this than he was in Skyrim. Also, I can't remember their name, but I like the Reptilian enemies. They look like Gorns.

To go back to the vampire hunters: That's something I love about Oblivion. And to compare it to Skyrim: there's a lot more detail in this game, a lot more depth and a lot more choice.

I still miss the days of Morrowind. Walking on air. Wiping entire cities with spells of fiery doom. Or jumping across continents.

One thing I don't miss, though, is cliffracers.

As for the Shivering Isles, Sheogorath was a lot of fun. I don't even remember if he was in Skyrim.

Nope. Nuh uh. You're not convincing me to play Morrowing, Skuls. Not gonna happen.

Still ... wiping out entire cities? Dude.

But, yes, Sheogorath was in Skyrim. His quest was one of the Daedric quests. It started with talking to a beggar in Solitude ...

I think the dragons of Skyrim are basically there to give everyone who played Morrowind flashbacks of those hell demons known as cliffracers. Wink

And don't forget you had the ability to steal some of the best gear at level 1, no waiting until it hit the leveled loot list (granted nearly impossible to steal but still). Or being able to join 1 of many vampire clans.

Finished Oblivion. I had so much fun that I don't want to really stop, but at the same time I've been playing it for two months, I'm a little burned out.

Now, I couldn't help but compare it to Skyrim, in some ways I found Oblivion to be deficient, and in other ways it was quite superior. So I think it would be a good idea to highlight the differences, in summary:

The graphics. This is no surprise, as Oblivion came first. But in terms of design, there were quite a few missteps. I just couldn't take some of the monsters or some species seriously. And I do prefer the design of the cities of Skyrim over that of Oblivion. That said, I feel the design was, on the whole, superior. There was much more depth to it. And I think that's something that can apply in all aspects of gameplay. There was more variety, more detail. More spells. I don't know how to count this, as the number of spells were fun, but also, by and large, useless to me. I may have not had as much emphasis, in my playthrough, on magic. But I do think that it was because the majority of spells were useless up to level 50 (the skill level, not character level. I think I finished that at 31).

Though one thing I really didn't like was the lighting. I almost constantly went round using Night ... something. Nightshade? Even in daylight. It gave everything a blue tinge. Not in itself a bad thing, but I would have liked to see the world design. Oh, and the weight limit. That was just incredibly annoying.

The guild quests. It's tough to say which game has the stronger. I liked the Assassin Guild one. Thieves Guild was also good, but they were both strong in both games. The Fighters and Mages Guild were fairly boring, to be honest.

The overall story, however, I very much liked, and, even though it lacked dragons, I think it was superior.

Now playing Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Which consists of me skipping around going 'I'm a pirate! I'm a pirate! Wheeeeeee! I'm a pir- ohh! A turtle!'

I'm also playing elder scrolls IV, but I don't really like it because the controls feel too clunky. One thing I don't like about any of the ES games is the first person POV. It makes sense for a shooter with a gun sight, it makes less sense to have a cross hair and a scope when using an axe or a spell. And it makes no sense for an RPG with character customization to not see your character. I know it has a 3rd person mode, but it's almost unusable in combat since you still need to orient attacks with the cross hairs along with y axis and there is only 180 degree camera rotation with the camera fixed on your character as the central axis, as if it's literally mounted on his shoulders. It's like a flight simulator, but with a wizard instead of a plane. That's not a good thing.

The controls were quite clunky, though I didn't mind the first person too much. I found it quite useful when using a bow. But then again I did have trouble, at least at first, hitting the target in the head. And you're right, 3rd person was almost entirely useless.

I'm playing Dark Souls 2. I hate this game, but I will keep playing it till I get all the achievements because I'm a sucker.

I just got Star Wars: TIE Fighter working on my laptop (tried my Windows 7 desktop machine and it looked terrible; worked much better on my Windows Vista laptop).

Still my favourite Star Wars game ever.

haha, sweet. On occasion I like to bust out, or should I say dust off, the N64 for some Rogue Squadron.

Yesterday I bought FTL: Faster Than Light for my iPad.

SO MUCH FUN.

I've played for a few hours, and I keep dying really quickly. It's super-hard, and I love it for that reason.

There's a super awesome free mmo called "Dragon Lords". It's more of a strategy war game. Fairest freemium I've ever played. It takes a little while to build a kingdom up but once you do it's a blast!
