    I appreciate them wanting to modernize Morrowind - which in effect is what Skywind is aiming for.
    And for those that don't care about Morrowind, then Skyrim with mods will be sufficient.


    The real problem is that it doesn't tackle the interest that TES fans have world wide, for a working multiplayer version of Skyrim (or Morrowind/Oblivion for that matter).
    I can't stress it enough - a DLC with net code for Skyrim wouldn't even be pirated, it would sell - people would lose their fu**ing minds.

    I applaud them for the effort, and their other project has been successful. It's just a shame that with all the effort and time they've spent on these things, that they may have made some net code.

    Anyways, back on topic - - anyone enjoy their ESO weekend?

    It's hard to talk about it...NDA and all ;/

    Anyone have the forums link for beta ? I lost it.

    Yeah it is obvious that the game is console-friendly BUT it is very nicely done in my opinion (talking about the UI). Too bad the game itself sucks (in my opinion) and the actually want you to pay for it.

    Yeah, that's what they said about Skyrim.... and then you see all the UI mods to "fix" it. Yeah, UI is great. Whatever.

    Game is ok, crafting looks good and bad. We'll just see what modding they allow when it releases... As long as there's a way to keep the console kiddies away from the PC gamers, I might be tempted.

    I uninstalled the beta (which I probably won't be invited into again anyway), and instead downloaded (I will buy it when it shows up on sale) Skyrim. I've spent last 4 days digging into mods, lol. Thing looks super promising.

    I would love to sign up - but all it does is ask your Birth Date - then direct you back to the main page - I assume Beta signups are closed :(

    And yes I did try a number of various dates after the initial 2 or 3 failures all with the same result.

    I agree, why the hell is every other post about Skyrim--a game which has its own dedicated thread stickied in the forums?

    I'm interested in how TESO has developed, I've seen a large shift in opinions online from "game sucks" to "games actually pretty good". Wondering if anyone shares the same view.

    Hehe, that's funny, because when I tried to look "skyrim" up I got shit ton of results, and none seemed like a stable generic thread. And there sure as hell isn't a sticky.

    Here. It's no longer stickied but I assure you it was, I stopped checking it because honestly Skyrim got old for me fast, but none-the-less it would be nice to hear anyones opinion of TES:O. I'm intrigued by the progression system but can't be bothered to play and just keep forgetting about the game...

    Chetkigaming, why don't you describe you experience playing in the beta and why you feel it is as you so succinctly describe it. If you don't, your opinion doesn't mean anything to anyone.

    I guess it makes no sense to post it on TPU then. ;)

    Let's stay on topic please. Thanks!

    ESO could get 100 million players and EVE Online would still be the best. :D

    The above cinematic trailer that Ahhzz posted is awesome. Grab some popcorn and watch it.

    Eve is pretty screaming, altho I left 2 plex in my account when I let it die heheh. I may reactivate one day, but with Star Citizen and Elite coming out, as well as a few lighter-weights, I'll probably have my fill of Space for a while. Baby Sister site has a pretty short synopsis of one of the hugest, most awesomest worstest events to happen in EVE :)
    Kreij says thanks.

    I agree for the most part, but the shaky camera is way overdone in melee sequence, almost barfed the popcorn.
