Did anyone here play Oblivion? I did and I loved it and now the long awaited sequel to Oblivion is almost upon us, the release date is the 11th of November 2011.

There is so much you could say about this game that really I think these two vids explain it much better than I could.

I don’t know, there are some great games coming to the PC soon, which to get first?

Yeah single player only Freddy, but be warned if its as good as Oblivion, and I get the feeling its even better, you will probably misplace a few weeks of your life  Huh?

I’m going to get this game, but probably going to get it around Christmas time, when I know I’ve got plenty of time to disappear from the real world  Cool 

Probably going to get LA Noire for now, think Mrs Data will be able to help me with the detective work  Wink

The hardest part of L.A.Noire is working out whether the perps are lying or not.
It's all done on facial expressions. To be honest, it's one of the bits I wasn't impressed with.
The other was trying to learn a controller setup for a 3rd person game with shooting. My fault for getting the PS3 version.

PC only for SkyRim.  thumbsup

I couldn’t wait for Christmas, how can I have a new game sitting there in a box and not check it out?
How I thought I could wait is beyond me  lol

To sum up, played it for 2 hours and it’s Oblivion but not as we know it.

The only thing that I’m not that keen on is the new GUI, the Oblivion one was soo much nicer, have to blame the consol game boxes for that.

You're up with me on game play then, about 2 hours.

Been busy with other things. I'm off to buy some crockery now but I WILL be playing to the wee hours tonight.

Snowy, how many Nirnroot did you find on your way to the first village?

Sometimes I really hate you. In the nicest possible way.  Grin

I had found none but now have 3 but that's from around 2 villages.

LOL  lol

I found one on the way to the first village, think you might have missed that one, but right now I only have two, so you are ahead of me.


Performance

I’ve found that setting the view distance to Ultra is too much for my 1 GIG card and in places it’s jerking out, for now I have the view distance down to high and all other settings at Ultra, nice and smooth now.

But there are tweaks…  

Here is a link to the Steam forum with tweaks to Skyrim, basically using some of them can help match the game better to your machine.

I’m going to be having a play around with some of them later.

Note to Freddy.
Yup get a 2 GIG card, modern games are starting to need a 2 GiG for Ultra settings.

There is a little tweak for Skyrim that seems to be a must for gamers that have a 64 bit OS and at least 4 GIG of RAM, in short the game is made for 32 and 64 bit so the makers have set a limit to the amount of RAM the game users to 2 GIG, this tweak lets the game use more, I’ve been using it and I think there is a noticeable improvement when running around outside.

Snowy try it  thumbsup

I wonder if it'll help with the CTDs (crash to desktop)? They are getting annoying for me.

Will try and let you know.

I haven’t had one crash since that small up-date from Steam, nor has it crashed with this tweak.
