    Meh. Shouldnt even have shown it, imo. Ill prebuy the shit out of ES 6 and probably take a few days off work. But this was a stupid official reveal. I really liked how for the last couple titles Bethesda had gone about making their announcements like 6 months before release. Now it seems like theyre going back to the "wait for years" shit that I was hoping AAA companies would start phasing out.

    If that's all they're showing what's the goddamn point.

    The Skyrim reveal was far more awesome. Get a feeling they pumped that out simply because too many people were asking "where is ES VI?" constantly

    Worse than that. People have been talking shit to Todd Howard as it is for YEARS about ES6 and now this E3 they reveal an online version of Fallout, Fallout 76. It is not being received as well as they would like and it looks like the Elder Scrolls reveal is to lessen the thud of "Fuck your online Fallout, we wanted Fallout 5." It looks like they threw together that Elder Scrolls landscape and title just to make this E3 look less of a failure because I'm telling you, most old school Fallout players are not going to be happy getting griefed by other players.

    They sunk EVERYTHING into this Fallout 76 online game. There was nothing to show for Starfield but a splash screen, same thing with ES6. Oh yea, they worked on another mobile app called The Blades.

    I'm tired of these Bethesda RPGs becoming garbage trash MMOs.

    Im on the same boat. As simplistic as Skyrims combat is, I still prefer it to the to how awkward and counter intuitive W3 combat is. THats literally my only fear regarding Cypberpunk. I know itll be epic, with an incredible world and amazing quests. But how is the combat going to play?

    TES games have absolute shit combat. Far, far worse than the Witcher.

    LMAO, are you cereal? Did you just try to sell The Witcher 3 as glitchy programming to a forum of gamers?

    Giving a Christian sermon in the center of Riyadh might be safer. I'd recommend that.
    You keep this up you won't have to wait for that mob justice.

    I just stopped arguing with him. If you look at the history of gaming there are games that come along and they are milestones, icons, achievements in game making. Some of the early ones would be Wolfenstein, Doom, Elder Scrolls, then you had games like Half Life/2. These are just examples. These milestone achievements in gaming don't happen a lot. I would consider Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in that category. When it first released it blew peoples socks off. It was totally unexpected that it could be that good.

    I think it's much simpler combat, and Witcher 3 attempts to be deeper and give more options. But ultimately I can find ES combat satisfying due to successfully implementing its admittedly rudimentary mechanics. It's simple, but also responsive and I generally always know what's going to happen and where my PC will end up after a maneuver.

    In W3 it's like you're gliding on roller skates while just as often as not the player agency is taken away as Geralt might do a pirouette or charge forward seemingly at random. And if he twirls in a circle, despite my lack of desire for him to do so, I can always expect to either take damage or wind up in a completely different position than I prefer.

    I think W3 combat has more options, it's deeper and more complex. It just happens to be clumsy and unpredictable, and at the end of the day the best strategy is still always to just roll away or dodge and strike after the enemy misses. So most of the options are rendered moot when enemies are beaten so easily by the systems most mundane maneuver.

    However I'd also say combat is a more important mechanic for W3, since the game doesn't have the same sense of world building and scope that something like Skyrim has. As much as I played W3, I never just got lost in it which is an experience Bethesda games are superb at creating.

    ES 6 will be a launch title for the next gen consoles.

    And then remade and remastered for the next decade.

    Here's another pronouncement. TES VI will be the biggest cultural event in gaming history. Fallout 4 had some pretty big crossover into 'normie' spheres but the sequel to Skyrim will be far larger. It will blow hyped games like Zelda OoT and MGS2 out of the water.

    This will be bigger, it won't just be (mostly) kids. Grown ass men will be wetting themselves.
