DAMNNNN I CAN'T WAIT. I heard it was going to be in Skyrim. I hope that the crappy book Infernal City is not official canon. That idiot Greg Keyes screwed up the entire Elder Scrolls world.

I really like the background choir. Awesome music.

I bet you it is Jeremy Soule again. That guy is a genius. He did the music for Morrowind, Oblivion, Neverwinter Nights, KOTOR, Guild Wars, etc.

I hope they release an anthology or something that contains all the in-game books, manuscripts and what have you. There are just way too many of them in the game for me to read on the monitor.

But I never heard any Latin lyrics from his music before, assuming it's Latin. That's why I'm kind of excited.

I don't want to wait 11 months for this, it has been to long since oblivion came out.

The wait for Elder Scrolls IV was excruciating. I was checking the official website several times every day.

When it finally came out, it was a letdown. They took steps forward in terms of artificial intelligence, physics, combat system, and graphics. However, I felt it lost a step in things such as the bartering system and the world didn't seem as expansive as Morrowind or Daggerfall. Having cities in a different cell also didn't feel very open like in Morrowind. Mournhold was kind of a crappy city to be in, they should have learned from that when making the Imperial City.

What I am glad is that Todd Howard actually reads the Elder Scrolls forums and takes ideas from players.

Why is it being released on Remembrance Day?

Perhaps an allegory to a war storyline of some sort. Then again 11 11 11 is a sweet number combo.

It's nearly impossible to make an expansive and deep game like Morrowind with Mass Effect graphics. One of the two has to suffer. Either you have a deep game with crappy graphics or a visually stunning game with a "shallow" feel like Oblivion or Fable. Especially if you want to port it to the Xbox and PS3. Daggerfall was such a bad game. Morrowind is definitely the clearcut "best" game of the series. If done right, Skyrim could surpass it. Because Nords are such Bad Apples

The one thing I hope they change is the "zonal" system. I thought it was perfect in Morrowind that some zones were meant for higher levels and vice versa. It made the whole griding to make a high level character worthwhile

I just hope it doesn't feel like an Expansion.

Awesome!

I don't know...I liked Oblivion. I wasn't a big fan of Morrowind...I'm not sure I ever finished it (though, at the time I bought it and played it I was probably too young to appreciate it). I think the loading times in Oblivion were drastically reduced compared to Morrowind and that was a huge plus. The one thing I didn't like about Oblivion was that I found all those gates/portals to that other plane or whatever tedious and boring after a while so I'd avoid them if possible.

But games like Oblivion and Fallout 3/New Vegas are great because they are so expansive and take a long time to play.

I didn't like Oblivion's scenery. Cyrodiil was supposed to be a dense jungle, they changed it for the worse in my opinion. The world was also half the size of Morrowind.
