Graphics look better than the earlier screenshots could show, but I still don't think it's that much of an improvement. Textures still look way to shiny, the tomb textures look like the stone is made from plastic or something. Hopefully they fix stuff like that before release given it's so far away, but I sort of doubt it.

It's not the best graphics ever, but I think it's a hell of an improvement and the art direction looks really fantastic. I really want to see some gameplay.

Wouldnt dungeons be dank and wet?

So then wouldnt the stones have moss, slime and water on them?

Sure they would, but they would also be dirty and covered with stuff that would cause less of a shine on the stone than plain water. Despite being covered in water, moss and dirt and what not the stone should not shine like Edward from Twilight when it's wet, instead it should become darker and have less of a shine to it.

The way it currently is, it looks like the dungeon/tomb/whatever was scrubbed spotless then covered in water, which is quite unrealistic. Have you ever been down into one of the many underground caverns throughout the world? Where there is water, the rocks are nice and shiny generally. But the water is not everywhere, so many of the rocks are dingy and dull looking.....not quite the case in the screenshots above.

Some would, I suppose, if they were frequently under water, but Oblivion dungeons could have been the walls of a spaceship too. Way to shiny. Any old fort I've been in is dark and musty. You don't really think about it until you play other games and see how they did it. I played through Alan Wake recently, and the mines in that game were very well done, they really felt dark and dusty.

Exactly, I haven't been in any old forts or anything, but I have been in underground caverns and what not. Usually the only shiny rock is that which has water slowly dripping down it, most of the other rock is dark and dry looking, not shiny in the least.

That's what mods are for. :D To be honest, the game is looking much better than I thought it would; it's a pretty good jump from Oblivion/Fallout 3. The graphics so far look quite acceptable to me; good enough to tidem e over until some high quality texture mods start coming along. :)

When the guy yells and the music bust out is the most epic moment I've ever seen in a trailer. I'm ready to give it GOTY right now.

I would say that it's a Dragon Shout, the new special power system in Skyrim. Also you aquire them from Dragons, so in the later part he gets a potential new one (in very Highlanderish style).

A bit more on them here

Really nice trailer. The creature animations look a hell of a lot better here than they did in Oblivion. Especially around the 1:41 mark when the character is drawing his bow at that four-legged thing (couldn't really make out what that was). That big hulking thing at 1:27 looked awesome too.

I hope they bring back all of the races, though. I need my Argonian thief :).

Do want!

Even although I have a capable PC, I've just resigned most of my gaming to the couch and console nowadays so I hope the console ports run okay (I can happily live with the usual weaker graphics).

      Gartner predicts in-use global devices will hit 6.2 billion this year
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Gartner has predicted that in-use devices including PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, will reach 6.2 billion units this year. According to the firm, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed device usage patterns and is ultimately increasing the number of devices that each person has.

      According to data from the firm, the 6.2 billion figure is set to rise by a further 3.2% in 2021 reaching 6.4 billion units. The biggest loser as a result of the pandemic is desktop PCs which are expected to decline from 522 million in 2020 to 470 million in 2022, however, the usage of laptops and tablets will increase by 8.8% and 11.7% respectively as they’re preferred by people working from home.

      Image via Gartner Commenting on the data, Ranjit Atwal, senior research director at Gartner, said:

      In addition to laptops and tablets doing well in 2020, smartphones are expected to see an in-use increase of 1% this year following a decline of 2.6% last year. The analyst said that lower-priced 5G handsets will encourage people to upgrade their smartphone or finally make the shift from a feature phone.

      Krafton launches top-down mini-game POBG inside PUBG
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      In honour of April Fool's Day, companies around the globe have celebrated the day with fake products and ridiculous announcements. At first sight, one might think that the announcement of the game titled PlayerOmnom's Battlegrounds, or POBG as most people are calling it, is one such prank.

      On the contrary, the creator of the wildly popular battle royale title PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds says so otherwise. Krafton has released an official statement authenticating that POBG is indeed real. PUBG's makers are currently offering players a chance to play POBG, which they are jokingly claiming to be the inspiration for the main game.

      Players can enjoy the title in the form of a mini-game within the PC version of PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds. A gag trailer for the newly unveiled game-within-a-game can be seen below:

      The mini-game is available for a short period of time. PUBG players can play the top-down shooter through the lobby of the game. PC users will be able to play POBG starting from today until April 12.

      Meanwhile, console owners have not been left out of the April Fool's special release. PUBG players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms will be able to play POBG through the main game's lobby from April 8 through April 19, 2021.
