X-Fi and Oblivion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was shooting arrows at a target in Oblivion and I noticed that when the arrow hit, the sound was significantly louder in my left ear. That shouldnt be since the target was right in front of me. I thought something must be wrong my settings or my headphones. Then I notice theres a building next to me on the left side. So I turn and fire in another direction, and it sounds fine. I go up to a wall and turn so the wall is on the right. I fire and the sound is louder from the right this time.

You know what this means? The sound actually reflects off objects in the game! This is amazing. Not only did they put so much detail into the graphics and physics, but the sound effects as well. Add an X-Fi to that and its amazing. You can actually drop an object and as it rolls past you, you can tell exactly where it is without looking.

All the more drool effect for when I get Oblivion! I won't have headphones at first, but at least I'll have 5.1 for all the total surround. Throw on the 24-bit crystalizer and cmss 3d digital surround on the xfi and i'm good to go
