Currently slated for November 11th, 2011, as announced at the Spike Video Game Awards. Words can't fully embody my excitement for another Elder Scrolls experience.

Awesome. Is that Max Von Sydow doing the narration?

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

After sinking well over 100 hours into Oblivion I'm not sure if I should be excited or full of dread at this news.

As long as they get rid of the horrible leveling system in Oblivion and replace it with Fallout 3s I'll buy it day one.

I just need to convince my wife that she wants to take the kids to the grandparents for a few days.

This may be the first game I pay full price on release day. I loved Oblivion.

When I bought it Oblivion it was during a Spring Break so I enjoyed having a week to play.

Skyrim coming in November will be a little rougher.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

I played Oblivion on a computer and it was great but the leveling system was profoundly broken. I hated it and did a mod ASAP. If I had to play on a console it would have ended up in the trash.

I gave up computer games so it's console or nothing. I may buy it eventually but only after reading lots of reviews and certainly not at launch.

Oh god, I have to change my pants.

I've spent more time on Oblivion than on any other single game I've ever played. Hundreds upon hundreds of hours easily. I will be buying this day one. Sorry Uncharted 3.

Isn't Uncharted 3 coming out on 11/1/11? You have 10 days.

Good point. I could easily beat Uncharted in 10 days.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

Is it possible that this might come out with the launch of the next Xbox console?

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

After missing out on all the awesome Oblivion mods, I'm definitely getting this on PC.

I don't think so. We hear about new consoles far enough in advance that it's extremely unlikely. This generation is lasting longer. I'd like to start hearing something soon, but I don't expect the next consoles until 2012, maybe even later.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

Well, after 5 and a half years, I'd expect a new engine. I may also get this on the PC, because as good as these games are, they have a lot of bugs, and patches don't fix some of them. On the PC, there may be unofficial patches released by the community.

I didn't play the game until well after the expansion was released, so I benefited from spending some time looking over the wiki for the game. I thought the leveling system was more difficult to plan for, but ultimately more rewarding than the typical XP system.

I may also buy a game guide for the first time ever with this game.
