Oh, the vampire hunting season is coming up again. I've got to up my stakes in the stake market again.

According to the Game Informer article I'm drooling over at this very moment, vampires are getting a lot of new stuff - and werewolves are getting tweaked, too. Both will have their own unique perk trees now with new and improved abilities to go with it. All I can say is that I cannot wait to turn into a swarm of bats. And swarm people. There will be "legendary dragons" added (not much info other than they will be hard...er?), and some other new enemies like "gargoyles, death hounds, and armored trolls." New shouts, new homes (one of two available depending on which side you choose) with some interesting benefits, and

I love how they're like "NEW MONSTERS" and I'm going "heh, riiiiight, because Vampire Lords and Gargoyles are SO BRAND NEW TO THE TES SERIES" and then I realize I'm old and that the majority of the people who play Skyrim have never played Daggerfall :(

Hehe, you and me both! Come and have tea with me, and we can chase those young whippersnappers off our lawns by waving our canes at them. ;)
Interesting take on the second bit there, I hadn't thought of that!

I also played Arena. The only one I haven't played (and this includes the terrible cell phone games) is Battlespire. We can share :P

We seriously need something like the little badge avatars that you guys have, but just for TES. Plus I want more crap for my signature.

Nope, you just get inducted into the Geezer club like the rest of us! ;)

Heh, I have no merit, I borrowed it off of someone else on the BioWare forums. If I looked hard enough, I could probably find the same for The Elder Scrolls... Humm... CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!! ^_^

At the very least, I should be able to find the .ico files for most of the games, if you want them.

Oh, I have them, too, I just need to find the time to do it... Incidentally, I've becoming surprisingly adept at typing with one hand... ^_^

Edit: Did you guys watch the new teaser trailer? Talk about underwhelming! Drums a few shot of generic rogue/mage/warrior characters... I'm so disappointed! And look at that elf! It's a step back from Skyrim which made an effort to give them an alien look... :(

After participating in the beta, I just plain dropped the game. The stuff and options they give to players who pre-order or buy the Imperial Edition is just plain ridiculous.

I agree with all of the above as well.  But the major thing that made me avoid this game after playing the beta quite a bit was learning that you could be any race on any faction...That just irked me to no end!  The only race imo that should be allowed to choose would of course be the Imperial race(for reasons anyone who knows about the game would agree).  Other then that all the races should of stuck to their respective factions.  Not sure if I am in the minority to this...but that was the major reason I dropped the game.

Agreed.  I played a bit of the beta and was unimpressed, or at least not sufficiently to pay a monthly subscription.  I dived back into Skyrim for a bit, finished up Dawnguard and Dragonborn, and haven't looked back since.

I played the beta, and I strongly don't recommend it for anything.

 

The only thing appealing about this was the real-time combat (IE, you see a blow coming, you hit the right mouse button to hit the shield), and that breaks the second you're hit by lag (which will almost inevitably happen, especially in PVP- making it a case of 'the person with the better computer wins').  Nothing else stood out as anything different or better then the standard MMO's these days (WOW, Eve Online, SWTOR, EQ2, Guild Wars 2, whatever you choose to play).  Quests are just grinds, character customization is more ugly then anything, the story is uninspired, and well... that only leaves the combat, and even it's not that better then WOW (which I personally hate, but your mileage may very).  Considering that I've loved Elder Scrolls since Morrowind (I played Arena and Daggerfall, sure, but Morrowind was when I fell in love), I was rather disappointed in this game.

That article is full of misinformation. For example the imperial horse isn't faster than other mounts in the game, it has the same stats as the slowest, cheapest horse that you can get in game for gold. And imperial style gear is available to other players and races if they get a crafting recipe for it in game.

 

And to the contrary to what the author of the article wants you to believe, selling mounts, cosmetic gear and even races, is nothing new in the world of subscription based MMOs. I don't like those practices, but it has all been done before.

 

To my great surprise (because I didn't like previous ES games) I have enjoyed my time with ESO beta. It was better than Skyrim in almost every aspect, it had better story, quests (not great, but still better), graphics, art style, and much, much better combat (at least for someone like me, who likes to play as a mage in third person mode).

 

I plan to buy and subscribe to the game in the future, when the initial hype and hate wear off.
