What do you think folks?

    Well, I think the screens don’t look too bad but they don’t feel TES like to me and the early buzz is pretty negative.

    Looks nice, hope it will come to one of the next gen consoles. Cant be bothered with gaming on a PC anymore….sooo 2008.

    @1 What buzz there even is? Pretty much “Hey, this game is a thing” -level of buzz or have I missed something awesome material that they have released? Leaked very early Beta footage doesn’t count.

    Looks… Generic?

    This game looks like a dog when running. Terrible animations, drab environments, low detail.

    Don’t be fooled by a screenshot.

    What people want is a multiplayer version of the Elder Scrolls games, not a reheated version of every other MMO. Is this game an example of completely missing the point?

    Sadly, Skyrim x1000 just isn’t currently possible with existing hardware.

    MMOs look ‘lo res’ for a reason.

    That may be true to a degree, especially considering that they want to reach a wider audience, including those on lower end computers. But the problem here is aesthetics, something that the game has been bereft of since day one.

    There’s absolutely nothing there that charismatically states “This game is OURS!” in a way that can’t be challenged. It’s all painfully generic.

    Whatever one might want to say about Guild Wars 2, it did have a style of its own, and it was aesthetically beautiful and painterly. GW2 is the absolute proof, really, that you can have an MMO that does look good. It doesn’t need to be high fidelity, it just needs to be aesthetically pleasing.

    This just looks so very generic. It looks more Everquest than Elder Scrolls.
