What is this, The Elder Scrolls meets How to Train Your Dragon?

Fuck yeah! I'm stoked it's in Skyrim.

This has made my goddamn night.

I just hope that Bethesda has learned some lessons from Oblivion about leveling and repetitiveness...

Not dead yet.
About time they announced this.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year, the clanging of swords will begin their cry as the world is thrown into war!

At least, that's what my tag line would be.

Fuck yes! I want to kill some motherfucking dragons!

Eh? Aren't dragons supposed to be extinct in Tamriel?


But, yeah. That trailer is pretty awesome, if a bit "generic fantasy" for an Elder Scrolls game. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought it was a Dragon Age trailer.

Oh. My. God.

Also I totally called the next one being in Skyrim. Here's hoping there's DLC in Akavir.

[up]Everyone called that one. Okay, so, no more Gamebryo! Is anyone with me?

The game is being released on Remembrance Day. I wonder how that will affect sales.

[up] Probably not much.

It's typed rmctagg09.
I'm actually one of the minority that liked Oblivion MUCH more than Morrowind. Seriously, I've put more hours into Oblivion on one character than all my playthroughs of morrowind COMBINED.

So, yeah, I'm stoked. As far as I'm concerned, Bethesda is second only to Bioware when it comes to quality WRP Gs.

I'm with you. Gamebryo is fine, but it's just not up to standard anymore.

I hope Skyrim has lots of mountains with goblin-infested caves, and by the looks of it you have to fight dragons. grin It needs a wider range of character creation too. I wish you could change body shape, size, etc. Oh, and they really need to put some sort of chamber pot in the buildings. Missing details = Unfortunate Implications.

So yeah, this should be nothing less than AWESOME.

Hopefully more armor/weapons this time around.

I'm hoping we might be able to see some of Akavir this time. It always bugged me that there was just this continent out there important throughout history, but we only ever hear about it in the books.
I live in my own little world. Anything resembling reality is merely coincidental.

Hmmm, so there is yet another heir to the Septim line  * Wonder if it's the player, or someone else...

Who says it's the Uriel Septim line? Could be a new family with the right blood.

Nice graphics. I hope they're half that good in the actual game.

I'm already not thrilled with the poor writing in the voiceover, but bad writing in bethesda games is nothing new. Considering how big of an improvement FO 3 was from Oblivion, I actually have moderately high expectations for this one.

I'm with you. Gamebryo is fine, but it's just not up to standard anymore.
It's still gamebryo, but they say it's a bigger improvement from FO 3's edition than FO 3 was from Oblivion. I believe them. I'm hoping for Morrowind => Oblivion leap in technology but maybe that's too much to ask.

I'm thinking... Who says dungeons have to be caves or forts? I think the way Bethsoft handled Mehrunes Dagon's realm of Oblivion showed that they may be fully capable of making some kinds of outdoor dungeons.

Since this is taking place in Skyrim, I'm personally hoping that there are vertical cliff dungeons and canyons (with a river running through one canyon, and maybe you end up walking behind a waterfall in a cliff dungeon), complete with weather effects and all as you're scaling the cliff/traveling through the canyon.

I would like this ES to be the one that brings the Construction Set to the consoles. That's probably not possible for many reasons, especially since it would be impossible to make new meshes or textures of such a quality as can be made with PC programs(and I doubt scripting would be as easy on a console), but I would like it.

Was I the only one wowed by the awesome version of the Elder Scrolls theme with the epic chanting that they used for the trailer?
