Oblivion!

Recommended Posts

just bought oblivion for 90 bucks... waited patiently whilst instaling... play the game (i started off in a jail) and its so choppy and laggy even when i put every option on low Evil or Very Mad

 

 

 

DAM YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

awell looks like its morrowind for me

 

 

 

 

$90 USD? its only $60 for the collectors edition. there is no place that charges you that much (ignore this if you arent in the US).

 

and if your talking about buying other stuff with it to be able to play, my oblivion cost me around $1000 USD all together :lol:

 

but i do think i have a way to fix your lag problems, search google for something called "oldblivion". pretty much takes a lot of the special graphics things away (even more than turning them all the way down in the menus), i dont know what your computer is but that may make it run decent enough.

 

and morrowind is just about as good as oblivion, better for older systems.

 

 

 

my final review: my oblivion days were over about a week ago, and i decided instead of it being slightly better that morrowind (and therefore the greatest game of all time) it is the same as morrowind. some things i like better in one, some in the other. overall oblivion has more things i like, and things i dislike more than i disliked in morrowind. if i hadnt ever played morrowind before, sat down and played both of them for the first time at the same time, oblivion would be better. morrowind had that "wow" factor in there. i havent been into the modding part of oblivion yet, something with havok engine is making copyright problems, so bethseda cant release a mesh convertor (something like that, im not sure exactly). pretty much all they can do is retexture the existing meshes, so the new clothes are all looking pretty much the same. havent looked at any of the quest mods yet, they might be good. i usually just make house mods, so i can keep everything organized. now they have the menus automatically seperate everything, and the chest dont have a weight limit, so i can keep everything in one chest. makes it kinda pointless to make a house mod. and it kind of sucks that there isnt really any special armor, daedric is about the best and thats what i get drop wise half the time. so no reason for a display room.

 

 

 

one last question: when you were done playing (or if you are still playing), what was your total time played? mine is 95 hours right now, and i know i had at least 3 times as much in morrowind.

I think I ended up with about 50 hours on my main guy and 20 something on my other guy. I think I might have come in just below what I spent on San Andreas (which was about 80 in all). But it wasn't SO good of a game, once I got over the first few days, there was no need for me to rush home to play it. I just played when I had the time. It was overall a meh experience. But I might have been missing something, as I hadnt played Morrowind, and I wasn't really looking forward to Oblivion before buying it.

Hm, I'm suprised it's that choppy for you.

 

I've seen riggs similar to yours play HL2 and whatnot with no problems at all.

 

 

 

 

 

And IMO Oblivion is less memory / graphics intensive.

yeah, youll be perfectly fine with oldblivion, i would definently try it out if i were you. i think its oldblivion.com, but you can just do a search on google and it should come up first.

I've made millions on Morrowind simply making potions and selling them to the Mudcrab Merchant. Ownage.

 

 

 

Anyhow, a VERY modded out Morrowind can own Oblivion any day. At least while the Morrowind modding community is still larger than Oblivion's.


I really wouldn't call it an era. It was more of a definitive time period during which dinstinctive characteristics were expressed in similar ways.

is it worth me getting this game? i have a xbox360 and have been thinking about it for a while.
It really depends if it's your kind of game. If you're into hardcore RPG games, I'd stay away. I would say this is more of an action/adventure game with some RPG elements (they certainly aren't done very well), and the story is weak. But there's a LOT of content (very little of which I found very interesting), and there's lots to explore, lots to fight, lots of items to find. If you want quantity of game over quality of game, this is for you. The only thing that elevates it over any other game is the massive map (the towns are nice, and some of the buildings are fine, but the landscape is boring and as are the dungeons) and the top of the line graphics.

 

 

 

So it really comes down to what type of game you like.

I've made millions on Morrowind by opening the console and typing,

 

player->additem, "gold100", 50000

 

 

 

I'm a cheater.

Great game, even for people like me... You see I get bored very easily. But Oblivion kept me entertained for 2 frickin' weeks!

 

 

 

That might not seem like much, but I'll put it into perspective. I bought Hitman: Blood Money, played the first level. Got bored and I haven't played it since. That was on the day of the UK release. :P

 

 

 

My only problem with Oblivion in general is, the quests. All you do is talk to someone pick the right or wrong answer (which doesn't matter) and go and talk to a few other people who just so happen to be on the other side of the map. Then go kill some vampires/goblins/people in some remote cave that you would have never found by yourself.

 

 

 

Last thing, PC version > 360 version.
