Bioware and Bethesda have been duking it out for a very long time.

The most recent being DA:O versus Oblivion. However, the two styles have been competing since the days of Daggerfall, really. Baldur's Gate & Neverwinter Nights were the indirect competitors to TES.

They are both very good RPGs, and the companies behind them are also very good at what they do. That being said, unless Bioware gets their act together on DA3, this battle will be won by Bethesda.

Stupid EA buying out Bioware and ruining their games. frown.gif

Dude, you're killing me! i gotta wait 3 more days! How does it look visually? Not in a "i need high rez textures" way, but the art style? looks great in the gameplay trailers smile.gif

I prefer the Elder Scrolls over Dragon Age. I've never been a fan of point and click battles and for me this is the turnoff that I ruined DA.

another thing is it starts off WAY more violent than IV did, had the kid in the room and had to make him leave about 3 minutes into the game... you will see what i am taking about. PM me if you want some more details and dont mind spoilers biggrin.gif

You the one uploading vids to youtube? Granted the vids are of poor quality but I really hope the terrain looks much better on PC.

no i have not uploaded anything but it doesnt look great, looks like any other xbox game but the settings and whatnot is just as it should be for an elder scrolls game. the dull lit dungeons and the snowy mountain sides really look like what you would think. i cant wait to try it on PC but i am 99% sure i will have beaten the game by then and dont know if i will want to replay it twice in a week.

when i get off work today i will play at least another hour for sure. really enjoying it and the way you lvl up and train is very easy. i made an orc knight and going sword and board just because my son thought the orc looked funny.

not so sure i like the way you equip items, its kinda odd. you have all the items in a list and you scroll up and down and select them. maybe i am missing something (didnt take the time to read the book, just loaded asap biggrin.gif ) but its kinda weird and could be totally different on PC.

Although your comparing a game out a few years, to a game thats not even out yet..

Been an Elder Scrolls Fan since Morrowind, and unless they mess this one up pretty bad, i don't see that changing. Bit annoying that the games are developed for console now and not PC (where they started)

Something tells me im goin to have a bad dose of skyrisim all next week and will have to take it off from college wink.gif
