Oh god page king of negativity
correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the Empire have a firm foothold in pretty much every country before the Thalmor fucked their shit up? The only reason countries broke off from the empire (I.E. hammerfell) is because they surrendered to the thalmor.
If I can experience the story of a quest and exploration with buddies then I have no problems with the game. Those who say it would likely make Skyrim the last SP Elder Scrolls game are overreacting imo.
As long as I can loot everything.
plus it's pretty unique with the strange, meta and vaguely frightening way it handles stuff like the Dwemer disappearing, the vague hints on those jars about all the towers being what holds together the universe, not to mention CHIM
Other than the metaphysics though, I think it kind of also stands out as a not very "High-Fantasy" type of world, and is gritty enough.
the thing about tes fantasy is that it's full of the sort of things you'd expect and generic conventions etc etc, but it does it in a unique way, something about the feel of it, the art style, the world...
I mean look what bethesda did with trolls, elfs, the lore around the elfs, same for the khajiit, orcs (which are also a type of elf in tes lore iirc), things like the dremora
hell even their take on dragons is fairly unique
where as those TEO screenshots LOOK(this being the key word) pretty much like any other generic fantasy mmo..
the art style of the characters, armor, weapons, the look of the world, (from what we can see)
i'm sure it will be full of the lore related stuff, but something about experiencing it all from a first person perspective is what really does it for me, so i'm sad to hear it will be in third person
If anything, blame the Hero engine/art style for how generic it looks. The environments look just as unique as they are in the regular TES games.
If you could still rate negatively on nexus this would be the most downvoted by all the butthurt type 3 body fans(which as we know seem to be the majority), claiming how an MMO is the best thing to happen to the series .Due to the fact that now they can finally perform sweet Argonian love online to each other for a mere fee of a couple hundred gold...
Or maybe I just got carried away and just should've emphasised the -1 comment.
I plan to remove the very existence of ES: O from my mind and pretend it never happened.
I'm neither for or against this new online TES, seeing as I won't be able to play it on my slow connection, so it's like it already doesn't exist for me!
Morrowind has the most brainfucking lore ever devised for any work of fiction. God I love that game so much.
While Bethesda has said that the MMO won't affect the main series in any way, I'm still worried that they'll feel forced to use all the MMO provinces as a base for future games.
but yeah, I'm pretty sure the MMO is going to flop. There is absolutely no room on the market for another MMO, especially one without a giant IP. They would have to do something absolutely magical with TES:O to have even a slim chance at success.
Well, this is what UESP says anyway. I have no idea where they get these sources.
The point being that that the most general form of the statement's wrong once you've found a single example that contradicts the claim. A more accurate statement would be "the series with the exception of Morrowind and TESA Redguard".
Edit - sorry! I agree with you: TES4&5's environment *have* been lackluster (BethSoft haven't been applying themselves or summat like that), but the deeper is point is that (while this claim is ridiculously premature) TESO's environments differ significantly from the TES > 4s' in a way that has BethSoft finds doesn't add but detract, disowning it in the long run by saying it won't affect the series.
In all honesty, I would've thought the only way for environments to go from the barebones that characterized Oblivion was up - TESO proves otherwise.
Dunno if this is late, but I found it hilarious.
has there been any news about the dlc?
I like the idea of TES:O
I don't mind if the art style is somewhat different given it takes place during a different era.
But I DO NOT like the execution that they're describing. (skill hotbar etc)
I'd like an Elder Scrolls MMO, but I do not want this one.
