Dragon Born: Only guy I can think of that takes that name is Ysmir, Dragon of the North, the Nordic aspect of Talos, Tiber Septim.

I like dragons and all, especially when I get to kill the serpentine bastards, but one has got to wonder if TES is straying too far int othe mainstream of fantasy.

Max von Sydow FTW! I hope he will be in more of the game than just the trailer.

So Skyrim it is? I am a little surprised. We already sort of had Skyrim in Bloodmoon, with Solstheim. So this is sort of going back to an old well. Well, vikings are still fun though. Not to mention dragons - which appear to be the enemy.

I'd love to be excited, and I am sort of but nothing like I was before Oblivion came out. I just didn't think OB was a patch on Morrowind and I'm sort of worried they're taking it even more into mainstream fantasy and will ignore the lore (not that there is much on dragons). Still perhaps it will be good, certainly the announcment seems to have spread fast (at least the death of the ES website suggests so).

So yea exciting, I'd expected Skyrim, I hadn't expected dragons. I'll buy it, until then I won't judge either way.

Dragonborn... could this be a referance to another heir to the Imperial Throne?

Skyrim. Ice, Nords, maybe dragons, and definitely a content-free Flash intro screen that blocks entry into the rest of the goddamn site.

I suppose actually finding the effing Eye of Argonia was toooo haaard! for them.

I think I have to agree with you. The trailer for Oblivion was nearly climatic to watch - I was panting with my credit card in my hand till it came out. I couldn't have stopped myself from buying it, the trailor was so exciting :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGzKapvOb_M


Compare that to the linked one for TESV: Skyrim - it gives me nothing that says "Get your Septims out and hold your breath till 11/11/11 - it's not epic.


One thing disappointing in the trailer for TESV: Skyrim was that it gave no hint at the action, gameplay, etc. A lot of talking while staring at that one wall of carvings, then the dragon rising and spewing molton metal flames - then nothing! No huge musical score, no drama - I expected at the end to see some quick flashes of the game itself, a battle, a dragon in action - something to let us know it will be worth the $60.

To me, that was a disappointing beginning after 5 full years of waiting for the [censored] game.

I am very excited that we will finally be getting TESV - and just hope it lives up to the wait...and hope it is way better than the 'effort' they sunk into that trailer.

Remember that yesterday was just the announcement that the game is finally coming. We still have a full 11 months until the release date! A complete trailer with gameplay footage is just too premature at this point. Let's all just savor the fact that the new game has been confirmed and take a 'wait and see' attitude with the rest.

You are right, of course. I am excited that it is finally set - but kind of feel like Henry VIII waiting for the virgin that held out for marriage. After 5 years, I've waited too long, and fear the wedding night may not meet my anticipation of it. (it better, or heads will roll...etc. )

Just remember that when Bethsoft says 11/11/11 they mean 20/12/12.

No kidding. I'm not sure I enjoy games with dragons as a central theme, seems dangerously stereotypical. I played Dragon Age not so long ago and I didn't enjoy it much.

Well, if it is like Beth's other games, you can probably just completely ignore the central theme of the game anyway and do whatever you like. Look at Oblivion, it is all about Daedra. But you can easily ignore that and almost never see a Daedra (outside of conjurer enemies summoning one).

I'm very excited to see how TES V turns out! I won't touch it of course until its been out for a year or so - time for everyone else to review, wiki, mod, patch, unglitch. . . . Seriously, I don't go near new games, but eventually I'll decide if it's fit for my character or not. tongue.gif

The reason that OB was delayed and, in my own humble opinion, sucked, was because Bethsoft had a major computer meltdown which 90% of their data was lost when the game was almost finished.

They did, in my own humble opinion, a decent job with Fallout 3, and then Fallout New Vegas came out under Obsidian's Developers, the storyline was much better, as it was all grey, not black and white as Beths games tend to be.

Obsidian themselves could have been much greater then they are, especially if Lucasarts didn't have them rush out KOTOR 2. I know a lot of people don't like that game, but thats because they were rushed. I saw the great potential in that game, if they were just left to their own devices and given the time to make a polished product.

As for Skyrim, I'm sincerely hoping it isn't a medieval version of 'Reign of Fire'. It does however, sound dripping with lore. Dragons are represented in nearly every aspect of TES Series. From Akatosh to the symbol of the Empire, plus the Nords have an incredibly rich history despite their portrayal as dumb-barbarian-jocks, and it would be interesting to see the Ports of Solitude.

I look forward to creating an female Nord archer, hopefully with facial tatoos option this time, wearing fur armor hunting down a mighty elk as I stumble across an ancient Atmoran ruin or whatever token extinct race they have in this one.
