OK, so im a huge RPG fan. I cant get enough of them when i can aford to buy them, which sadly isnt too often! But i think im going to save especially for Two Worlds.
Its a free roaming adventure, the idea obviously taken from Elderscrolls and Gothic etc, set in a world of gobins, orcs and other fantasy creatures. You start of as a mercanery travelling to a mine which happens to be a grave of a dead god, while in this mine your sister gets captured too, so one of the quests is going to be having to rescue your sister. Sounds boaring,right? BUT in this mine lies a hidden power which monsters are trying to harness and your job is to stop them, also your char is one of the people who can use this power....sounds prety cool to me. Allong the way you will have to make choices, possibly and evil/ good allignment, and avoid getting manipulated by other character, build up skills and complete side quests, all put together this game sounds pretty damn good. I just hope to god they dont have a levelling system or compass like Oblivion!
Two Worlds also combined traditional RPG elements with new and interesting ideas, such as damage to trees and grass - it will only grow back after rain. And being able to enter and exit a building without loading times. Sounds cool? Definitely! it all adds to the realism which is great.
Also it will have deeper RPG elements like choosing skills (which you can train and un-train with special NPC's), such as blade, magic, block etc...An interesting feature i read was you can choose whether necromancy appears throughout the whole of the game by completing a quest of not completing a quest which suggests to me its very open ended. Another thing which i love about the game is that you can make weapons using old weapons, such as, getting three rusty swords and combining them to make a better sword; i think this feature is an excellent way making the game more personal to the player.
Apparently you'll be expecting around 40 hours of gameplay if you rush through the main quest, which is astonishing as Oblivion's main quest took me around 20, and many more hours if you do side quests etc which i definitely will be.
Graphically, this is very impressive beautiful smooth scenery, beautiful rendered landscapes, damage to scenery which actually stays there - better then Oblivion some might say. Which, to me is slightly worrying because GOOD GRAPHICS+FEW LOADING TIMES=POOR GAME PERFORMANCE. God knows how they are going to pull it off, I just hope they do it well. I don't want it to end up like one of those games with massive potential wasted by evelopers.
Have a look at the website because I'm bored with typing now, it looks quality! LOOK AT THE SCREENS!!!!!!
Wow, i just watched the new trailer and im extremely impressed. I like the look of thet new shield thing masterchief used to guard himself from the explosion. Wow i cant wait!
Which one to get?.... I dont know, its such a dilemma. I can start saving now and i might be able to get one in January. But which one shal i get? Oh this may sound stupid, but how do you prenounce "Wii"
Praise be to my mother who has kindly offered to lend me the money for an xbox360 and oblivion as im so skint. I should be getting it soon so ill post a few new blogs when i do! I cant wait!
Mwah ha ha! I have reached level 10!
Now its the time for a rant! Here goes...I HAVENT HAD A CONSOLE IN AGES AND ITS REALLY GETTING TO ME, I FIND MYSELF BORED AT TIMES WITH MY FINGERS ITCHING TO PICK UP A CONSOLE CONTROLLER, ANY CONSOLE CONTROLLER! DAMN IT! WHY DID I GET RID OF THEM TO SAVE UP FOR A 360, I SHOULD HAVE WAITED LONGER!
Ive been looking one gamespot and other game sites recently and the more the more Oblivion screens relesed the more i want it! Why does it have to be delayed for so long?!!
I played a 360 for the first time today in a game store in Birmingham (uk) and it was amazing. I played PGR3 on a HD Samsung screen. Admitedley, i wasnt thet impressed with the game on first impressions, but im not a massive racer fan, but im sure the game has much more to offer!
Ive just started saving for my 360. Im only going to buy it once oblivion is released though. So ive got months. Hopefully the price would have gone down slightly by then, or i could get a second-hand one.
