While the magic side of combat improved from Oblivion, the melee is still horrendous and feels like you are chopping through air. Luckily the series has been brilliant in almost every other facet Razz
I think it is third person. Theyre going for more of a WoW or SWTOR deal.

Not for me thanks. I will stick to playing single player skyrim modded to bits. Nod

Don't want to play it anyways. Most likely going to be subscription based.

Apart from slicker gameplay and combat, it doesn't seem that much difference to the last AC game
They all seem very similar to me Wink

I thought the game had potential until they showed the actual game bit- the world its set in looks good and involving- but the gameplay looks like the usual boring ass creed malarky sadly.

Zero Punctuation reviews Half Life (due to the usual industry pre-xmas release schedule he had nothing new to review)- entertaining and spot on as usual.

Stopped playing Oblivion, partly because my computer is a total bitch & partly because it is just. so. easy! It is just so easy to do. Laughing

So I've started playing Morrowind again; with Bloodmoon this time which I've never played before. The annoying thing is that I'm gunna have to level a character up first before I can start on all that stuff Rolling Eyes

I hate summer

I already owned morrowind & tribinual on disk, but never bought bloodmoon. When I was playing the game originally (at about 10/11) the game was still relatively expensive (no GOFTY edition as well) Bought it on amazon dead cheap- yes it has both solsthiem & werewolves Very Happy

Still, you're drunk so I'm not sure how much of this you're taking in

Not that it's important or anything Rolling Eyes

I take in everything when Im drunk Ally!- its just that it doesn't necessarily all make sense to me! drunken
But your post did- I have a soft spot for Morrowind- Oblivion was lush and green and all but it semed quite safe, and bland compared to Morrowind.
Skyrim is better but I still miss forests of giant mushrooms!

Okay, morrowind's combat is pretty bad. Terrible, actually. Cliffracer's are annoying too. In term of world design, Morrowind beats Skyrim tho. Very Happy Off the top of my head, things like the telvani towers and nix-hounds. The archeticture, the style was unique (okay mushroom maybe not there!) Very Happy

It was complex, beautiful and a really great game. Bloody great game Laughing . Not hating on skyrim of course. But Morrowind was way ahead of its time. And I love it.

Rolling Eyes at myself

I was trying to find Command and Conquer, Red Alert on Steam but it's not there.

I had Red Alert 2 but something mysterious happend in my P.C once that required me to take it apart and remove the hundreds of shards of CD that had exploded inside.

A sad, sad day in gaming.

'Sony has closed one of the UK's oldest video game studios following a review of its operations.
Sony Liverpool employed about 100 workers. It dated back to 1984 when it was known as Psygnosis. The Japanese company bought it in 1993.'- BBC

I can still remember being awestruck at Shadow of the Beasts graphics- 4 layers of parallax scrolling!! For games of that period it felt lke my eyes had died and gone to heaven.

And then of course who could forget the first time they saw Wipeout running on the psone?- I bought a ps1 on the strength of watching a friend play that game and I got the wipeout bundle- and it was as good as it looked.

So I give them a buckie salute drunken - thankyou for the gaming memories.

I've just finished the main quest on Skyrim for the first time. This may be down to me forgetting previous stuff having spread playing it over about 6 months, but it felt extremely short. Am I right on this or is it just in my head? Smile

People can blither and blather about all these reality role playing games, but nothing beats a good tank game. My favorite is still the original arcade game with two tanks in a maze, but now they have Bolo and the like. Many of the best are now gone.
