Does it look significantly better on PC like BF3 does? It would be nice to play on PS3 though, we can get that chatroom thing going again, that was a real hoot.

This might be worth reading.
PC versions of TES games tend to be considered the definitive versions, but it seems like Bethesda is putting more effort into keeping all three versions the same this time around.
And trust me, if Oblivion and console footage of Skyrim are any indicator, it'll still look completely fucking gorgeous on a PS3. On top of that mods tend to be the primary reason for people preferring PC versions of TES games, so it's incredible just seeing the possibility of mods in the console versions of Skyrim.

Hmmmm.... Also, yeah I'm pretty sure it just uses steamworks, but some games on steam also use GFWL, like Lost Planet, GTA IV, SSF IV, etc. And have you actually seen any PS3 gameplay? I've searched a bit on youtube but all the videos I see are for 360, I'm sure it'll look wonderful on PS3, but you know, in the past, mutliplatform games were always worse on PS3, graphically and glitchily (new word). I'll probably end up getting it for PS3 though, I already spend enough time in my room, in this crappy chair, on my computer..

I didn't like Morrowind when I tried it out (you move slow as shit and felt overwhelmed with game stuff)

I want to try Skyrim though and I hope I'll like it this time.



Also companies only use GFWL because it's an easy port job if they use it.
Pretty retarded but yeaaah...

If your only qualms with Morrowind were gameplay details like that you'll have no problem with Skyrim. It might still feel a bit overwhelming but whether that's good or bad depends on who's playing. The vastness and freedom of the games is part of what I love, but things like slow movement, missing most of your attacks, everything including money having a weight, having to read books worth of dialogue to know where to go and what to do, those are things you don't really have to worry about anymore, so it's easier to get into.

tl;dr = TES after Morrowind is much easier to dive into, which is part of why I ended up sticking with Oblivion for so long.

Like reverendjack, I came across this series by accident when my oldest brother got an Xbox. Morrowind was fun because you could exploit the game mechanics without even hacking. The setting/world it took place in was the strongest thing about the game. The characters and storytelling, not so much. Then there's the uncanny valley problem; to me and lot of others (Yahtzee, for instance), the characters seem kinda stiff and unnatural animation-wise. If Skyrim can tackle these issues, I may buy it for the PS3, if I ever get one.

I'm on the fence about whether to catch up on Oblivion, though.

Well. I'm not getting it for PS3. My landlord told me my apartment is using twice as much electricity as everyone else, I'm not using my computer anymore than I used to, so it must have been me watching 30 episodes of Death Note + Lots of Arrested Development, and a bit over 80 hours of Dark Souls on my roommates massive TV.


I'll just play Skyrim on my PC.

Oh gosh oh gosh.. Morrowind was my life years ago!

The problem was that I had to make two saves because eventually I would get distracted and go off to do things I wasn't supposed to. For example:

Me: -in thieves guild-
Guild guy: Welcome to the guild, bro.
Me: Thanks bro!
Guild guy: Now, don't steal anythi-
Me: -takes guild spoon-
Me: -runs like hell-

or.

Me: -standing next to wall covered in armor and weapons-
Guard: -stares at me and walks away-
Guard: -comes back 3 seconds later-
Me: -standing next to wall not covered in armor and weapons-

I did stuff like that all the time... or I would just randomly kill people and claim their house as mine, only to find out later I kind of needed them for a quest. So I had the "dur dur dur, I'mma derp around" save and the one where I actually did what I was supposed to..

Excited for Skyrim though. :D
I love you, spam bots.
