Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
That trailer was cheesy as hell but...oddly appealing. MEN are grunting and singing about ME and DRAGONS

unfortunately gamebryo.  :( - EDIT: allegedly not gamebryo!

I wanted to love Morrowind but I was young and bounced off the opacity of its sandbox and the cliff racers. Oblivion felt plastic and cheapened. What d'you reckon the odds are on this one being decent?

edit: oooooooooooooh 'skyrim' is 'sky rim' i never KNEW

His accent is funny. Basically he's all 'There were dragons, we forgot about them, now they're coming back, there's some kind of civil war too. Fortunately the dragons are scared of some badass called 'gubulubuab' in their tongue, it means 'The Dragonborn.'

fantasy plot hoooo

I thought Bethesda was using a new engine for Skyrim instead of Gamebryo.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Nope, we'd all hoped but it's still a modified Gamebryo. Id Tech 5 will not be involved.

Bah.  This rumor was a lie.  Less Gamebryo, more something, anything new.

Seeing lots of speculation about #tesv game engine. It's brand new... and it's spectacular!

We'll see.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Yeah, I saw that linked too, but I think by 'brand new' they mean 'modified Gamebryo.' I'll be overjoyed to be wrong, though.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Anyone else really like the music for the trailer?  It's obviously similar to the Oblivion menu theme, but the differences are enough to make it easily distinct, and much more interesting.

The Oblivion theme was a watered down version of the Morrowind theme, but yeah, it's the Elder Scrolls theme with a choral overlay. It was good in a cheesy way.

I suspect what we'll learn when Bethesda adopts a new engine is that, well, it ain't just the engine that's the problem.

Overjoyed if wrong, of course.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
if they manage to make people move around like people instead of what we saw in fallout games, and the textures/lighting look nothing like fallout, then sure, gamebryo is great, it has polygons 'n' stuff

Fallout wasn't made with the Gamebryo engine.  :hopping:

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
As is New Vegas. Ugh, thank god they aren't using that engine anymore, or at least not for this game.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Everyone trashes Gamebryo, but using Gamebryo is the reason the game is so highly moddable, and why the game is actually playable today (if you have it on PC)

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
And it's not as though people haven't made rock-solid games with gamebryo. Or at least Civ IV was rock-solid by the time I picked it up, two expansions down the road.
