The game looks incredible, but my interest in it is moot. As soon as I read that Skyrim's leveling system is going to be fundamentally similar to Oblivion's and Fallout's, I lost all interest.

that 5670 will be more than enough. i'm getting the 360 version and that's not even close to a 5670, i'll still be happy. if you have the cash, upgrade, otherwise, stick with the 5670. can't believe it's been like six years almost since Oblivion!

yup 6 years and I never uninstalled it! I keep playing it once in a while, the immersion is unmatched :yes:

I seen some gameplay of this on destructoid podcast and almost shat myself. This game looks like it is going to be badass, and steal many hours of my life. . . Although, to be fair, I wasn't using them for anything else interesting anyway. ;)

self depracating humor is always nice. and any time spent happy is not time lost, so long as you don't bother anyone else enjoying yourself.

I haven't watched any videos on this but I hope this game feels more like Morrowind or Fallout 3/NV then Oblivion because I hated Oblivion. I will have time to read people opinions anyway because I wont be picking it up till Christmas.

I have never been so excited about a game before, it's a bit mad.

Oblivion has been part of my life for the best part of 5 years, and that will be coming to an end very soon. Cannot wait for Skyrim. I paid in full for the pre-order like a month ago. xD

Bethesda will release a statement and apologize and say it is actually 60GB!

The HDD requirement is quite low actually.

Finally pre-ordered it yesterday, i was tempted with the collectors edition but decided against it at the end of the day i would be paying £130 for a plastic dragon. Not worth it at all.

I was tempted by the collectors edition too, simply because I know I'd play the game to absolute death for years to come, and I'd want to get a special edition of some kind. But what would I do with that dragon? *laughs*

Seems about right for a console port.

I'll be grabbing the 360 version first, as most of my friends will be getting it on there. Later on, when i've run out of things to do, i'll pick up the PC version for the modding ability. It's been a long time since i've looked forward to a game this much. I'm so torn on what type of character to make, i'm debating between sword and spell combo, an archer, and a pure mage.

HD Textures might come in a patch or something.

I doubt Bethesda will release something extra for the PC version when they haven't in the past. Either they will cut out the high res textures or they have devised a genious compression software.

Quote that Bethblog retweeted

6 gigs: New engine & we’re much better at compression (art/voice/data). It’s huge yet more optimized than we’ve had before. And faster.

      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.
