Game promo material is almost always done on consoles these days and we already know Skyrim will be multiplatform so there really isn't anything new in that.

If the hype is to be believed then it sounds like Skyrim will fix many of Oblivion's game-ruining flaws, but Bethesda's track record of gradually dumbing their RPGs down further with each new title and making terrible game design decisions that require community fixes to make the game playable; these issues make me dubious.

I'm prepared to be impressed though. I'd like to see something that surpasses Morrowind, this time.

I loved Oblivion. Played a lot of the mods as well (OOO was fantastic). I'm looking forward to this.

That "preview" read like it was written by someone on marketing.

I really enjoyed Oblivion & must have clocked about 300-400hrs game-time (even more than with Morrowind).

All I ask is that the game isn't blighted by ruinous bugs & glitches in it's Release-build & that the voice-acting/facial animations show a little more ambition than in Oblivion (and to a lesser extent Fallout 3). I've heard allusion to both of these areas garnering more attention this time around & so I'm about as excited as a child on Christmas Eve!

If they deliver on their promises then this will be good. +1 to leveling system overhaul. definite weakness in oblivion and morrowind

I have high hopes for this game, but I dread a smelly console ported letdown.

Or possibly Alec really was impressed as much as he says he was?

OTOH, rarely does a developer promise a lot and deliver it all, so lets wait and see.

shaping up to be the best rpg ever, it sounds like bioware actually listened to feedback from the last few releases, and the trailer is nuts...!

With so much positive feedback on the new UI interface, you would half-expect an accompanying screenshot. I suppose it is embedded in the video, but streaming video and satellite internet don't work well together...

that road in first page's screenshot can sure use some tessellation.

Would be nice if it scaled with multi core, I need an excuse to upgrade my processor too. Im assumings its an updated Oblivion/Fallout engine?

Console port or not if it can be modded to the extent that the recent Fallout and Oblivion games could be modded then it's got to be a solid contender for best thing ever.

It's not like Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas were all multiplatform and even Morrowind was on the Xbox as well as PC.

Unless those are all "console ports" in which case why look into a Bethesda game at all?

It's a brand new engine! At least that's what Todd Howard said(there's extensive info about skyrim on gameinformer). And it's got fully dynamic lighting for everything, yay! :D But I hope they'll make a decent sound engine as well, Oblivion and F3 sounds a bit "flat"...

Also given it's complexity(graphics, AI, sounds, physics and others) it actually might be possible to utilize more than 4 cores.

Looks like DX11 with all that tessellation.

So I'm assuming you saw this preview at the Bethesda BFG press event? Are you going to cover the other games that were there: Rage, Brink, Hunted, Prey 2 :-) ?

Aww yeah sounds good.

It's not often I read every word on an article :D but this being a game of mega high interest I enjoyed it all & really can't wait to get stuck into this potentially perfect game, haha the amount of hours I've spent playing elder scrolls games :D everything that was mentioned in the preview sounds freaking excellent ;).

It is a shame next gen consoles are definitely going to hold beautiful graphics back & many other games back with needing to keep it simple compared to what it should have been but hopefully they'll give pc gamers something awesome to really get excited about, really looking forward to this :D.

Off topic but something I'd love to see realised in a game.
I'm loving what bf3 is bringing with it's real character animation taken from sports games, games are shaping up to be near perfect but the elements seem to be coming from different devs, picture the crazy awesome la noir facial animation with body animation from bf3 crossed with a game as epic as this & it would be an absolute exciting classic, game devs need to combine all these elements into one to bring the ultimate game I really look forward to the day this happens :).
