    Well, in just over 2 weeks the new Elder Scrolls game: Skyrim will be released. Enjoyed 3 and New Vegas so much that I've decided to pre-order the game.

    Currently Zavvi is the cheapest at £27.85, followed by Amazon at £27.89, then Play at 29.99, lastly Steam at £34.99.

    Hopefully will be getter a better graphics card (5770, currently I have a 5750 or 60) and a better PSU in the next couple of days, gaming here I come again :)

    I reckon it will be on the Christmas list for the XBox 360 in our house. :)

    Mine's been on preorder on Amazon for an absolute age, and I'm getting giddy with excitement (almost!).

    Can't wait to get playing and get my review in.

    It'll be on my list.

    I've just gone back to Oblivion after a few months off.
    It's great.

    I must say from a value point of view there is something gratifying about a game that can go on forever, there is also an element of frustration.
    It's too much like real life - What? I have to go to work again today?

    I think my list is something like:

    Modern Warfare 3
    Mass Effect 3
    Batman Arkham City
    Skyrim

    Is it just me or does this flippin career melarky get in the way of your gaming! I swear there are so many games I've not had time to play I've given up keeping tabs. Also I've developed a very nasty habit of not completing games which isn't me at all.

    Assassins Creed 2 - unfinished. Rising Dead 2 - unfinished. That one where you're commander Sheppard that I can't recall the name of - 2 - unfinished! Must be the second instalment curse!

    The only issue I have with Elder Scrolls is that you can't co-op. To be able to do that would be bodacious.

    I loved Morrowind, lost a lot of my life to it. Oblivion? At best... meh. Far too repetitive with Oblivion gates spawning everywhere and a very unrealistically rendered horse. Amongst many other frustrations.

    Yeah, it was far too much like real life.
    I prefer the escapism of shooting someone in the face rather than wondering around trying to earn a living...

    You could do that as a living in Oblivion. :)

    I hope they have figured out some clever caching melarky so that you can smoothly walk around the world. That was my only bug about Oblivion. You'd be walking and it would hang, only for a second but it was enough for me to take my full battle armour off when playing it as it wasn't real enough ha ha

    THe only thing that I didn't like about Oblivion is the "bug" after you completed a class track, eg worked your way up to head Mage and the other mages still talked to you as if you were a pleb. Hope that is something that they fixed in Skyrim.

    Got it at the weekend. Up to level 6.5 at the moment, and got myself a horse (at last). Thoroughly enjoying it, although forgetting to save partway through a looong journey can be a bit of a bind. :(
