ROFL

i just bought xbox 360 version of shivering isles and Ive been playing for like 3 days straight... its great the dialog is hilarious.

btw that looks like it's just a 1 hit kill arrow on an invisible bow that auto soul traps, then sending it out makes the player appear in a "turn opponent" state. a pretty basic mod imo.

That game looks poorly built. The battle animations are really shotty.

wait? are we still talking about OBLIVION... the "RPG Game of the Year", oblivion?

it looks shotty because he made like 100 different effects invisible for the pokemod. most of the people shown are under a "frenzy" spell which makes them attack everyone. not to mention he has chameleon effects and what looks like an invicibility cheat on. Besides, most battle animations that are good only consist in one state, where players have to be in the right position to take part in the animation, so anywhere in the range moves them there first, which looks horribly fake until the battle takes place. Oblivion uses a system where you can take part in battle from multiple angles and it animates it on the spot, which is much more difficult to do and looks alot better at high settings, since it will have algorithms and calculations running constantly. Toned down versions (changing PC settings so it runs faster) may have been used which generally disable some algorithms at the sake of things looking a little worse.

I just can't see Oblivion being any fun. I played it for 5 minutes and got bored of the spells and magic it was talking about. I'd much rather play an FPS or driving game.

the tutorial is lame, once you get out of that the game is hella addicting, IMO main quest is the worst one cuz i hate oblivion gates. Assassin's guild is pretty awesome. you would love shivering isles though... the missions that the main guy gives you get pretty psychological, especially since the dialog is hilarious but makes no sense until you beat the whole thing. BTW durrell, spells are lame at low levels... you can't do much till you are halfway there, I only use them as a crutch right now, fighting is where it gets fun. Enter the arena or fighters guild.
