    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Yeah, I've been drooling over this for a while. Look at the clouds of mist hanging over the dark woods, the way sunlight glints on armour: beautiful! I just hope my rig can handle this; it's a good thing I'm happy to play games at 25 fps otherwise I'd be getting in some financial trouble right now...

    Been there, done that for the last one! Spent far too much money upgrading various bits of hardware, vowed never to do it again but now it's actually upon us... lol, damn it... I'm slowly cracking.

    I'd wait until it comes out and see how it runs first; I've heard that a lot more effort has gone in to optimising this one to run smoothly than went in to the last couple of Elder Scrolls games. It will obviously run slower than Oblivion on the same hardware, but bear in mind that the engine is being built with the same generation of consoles in mind as the previous game, so hopefully that will translate to well-tuned performance on PC as well.

    The games I am watching in this genre are Dungeon Siege III (PS3, PC, XBOX 360) and Lord of the Rings: War in the North (PS3, PC, XBOX 360).

    I loved the original Dungeon Siege for the PC as well as the version released for the PSP. Lord of the Rings: War in the North is being released by Snowblind Studios who put out the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance series as well as Champions of Norrath and Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel for the PS2. Whoever says that Diablo style games cannot be adequately ported to console never played the game published with the Snowblind Studios engine. I think they do an exceptional job at it which is why I am excited to see their first game for next gen systems.

    I checked out War in the North, this is the first I'd heard about it, but looks like it could be quite cool.

    Yeah, from what I heard you can skip Dungeon Siege II. They played with the mechanics and not many people like it. Looks like they are back on track with III though.

    I'll have to take a look at Titan Quest just because I never heard of it.

    This actually inspired me to finally get around to downloading Oblivion to my 360 and giving it a shot.

    Music is great as always, and the environments looks so lush and diverse using the new engine. Bring on 11/11/11!

    Loved hearing the new skyrim version of the theme. forests look beautiful, water surprisingly janky. dont care about dragons after the last game had the oblivion gates though. still super excited, but not the same pop as uriel septim giving the spiel about "the gates of oblivion have open, these are the final hours....of my life".
