Developer: Bethesda Game Studios.
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks.
Engine: Creation.
Platforms: Consoles & PC.
Release Date: November 11, 2011.



Looks darn good. This might be Bethesda's big release after Fallout 3. A new engine in an already awesome series is a big win. This might be my RPG game this year. Vast lands and new weather system simply adds greatness to this game. And oh, DRAGONS!

Yeah after Bioware delayed ME3. This would be the best RPG. Bethesda always come with a bang and this might be that.

Well, I wish Bethesda could come up with a gameworld as huge as Daggerfall , but that'll probably occupy like 10 DVDs in the present scenario :D .

Its not about the area of the map. Its about what you can do in that map and Bethesda truly excels in that. They give you complete freedom to do whatever you want and whenever you want.

Well I can't say about reason but I guess no developer want to screw the game but they just do it but Bethesda is not like that. Every time they come with a RPG they come with a big bang many gets GOTY award in RPG so I say lets wait and watch.

Well my b'day is on 1st november and am thinking to get a new PC then so this would be the best game to test it out. Regardless, I was a HUGE fan of Oblivion. Clocked in 150+ hours in it. I hope they don't ruin it like BioWare ruined the Dragon Age series with Dragon Age II.

^^ Be sure to get a powerful beast because this game is gonna be resource hungry as per my assumptions.

Yeah it will be. When Oblivion came it out, it brought the best machines of that time to their knees... and I think (and hope) that so will Skyrim.

I hope that this time they change their minds and bring us a game which would run even on mediocre PCs. :)

Well I sincerely hope that it should run on mediocre PCs with good graphics. This is gonna be one of the best RPGs.

As long as games are being developed for the present generation consoles along with the PC, the system requirement will never be too high.

Wonder how it would be if Skyrim had the V.A.T.S from Fallout?

The sys reqs won't be high but playing a game on low settings isn't that fun. Personally, I am not the one who minds graphics much. I still play a lot of Mario and Contra on emulators and love arcade-ish games whose sole objective is fun so definitely graphics aren't the focal point for me but what I think is if you wanna play a modern game, play it as it was meant to be. The thing is consoles will always get the dumbed down version. For example Crysis 2. It's impressive on the console but if you play it on a good rig with settings on High, you will see the difference.

I hope Skyrim has a more er.."living" world. In Oblivion , you seldom met someone while traveling between cities. Of course, there was a mod that improved traffic between cities and also gave NPCs "jobs" . But it would be nice to have this by default in Skyrim. Also , more tools for the thief would be nice (similar to the Thief series , I'm talking blackjacks, water arrows e.t.c) with the ability to climb rooftops and sneak in through the top floor.

Maybe even letting the player run his own trading store would be nice , with NPC adventurers buying stuff from you and going on suicide runs to dungeons. But eh... I think I'm asking too much here. Bethesda would probably bug the AI coding for this :D
