The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim Footage/Interview

The new episode of GameTrailers TV features Geoff Keighley's visit to Bethaisda (?) to check out The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim, the next installment in Bethesda's RPG series. This features a conversation with Todd Howard and shows of new gameplay footage centering on the role of dragons in the game. Thanks Acleacius.

Replaying Oblivion after four years, modded heavily... and the game does not stand up well at all, visually or otherwise. Music is still great but that's about it. Deadly Reflex 6 installed, but it's a little more than a patch on a festering wound

I agree but more involving the gameplay mechanics than the graphics. Between Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, and New Vegas, we've all just sort of tacitly agreed that the way to do NPC dialogue is to pause the entire world, zoom in on the NPC speaking, and endure a dialogue tree. I think the main element of Skyrim that'll instantly spoil all of us is the new dialogue system. We may still have a tree to deal with but releasing the need to lock in & zoom should make things interesting.

I wonder what'll happen if you just walk away in the middle of an NPC's sentence? Probably similar to real life: they'd think you were the captain of the douche canoe.

Nov 11th is a Friday. How fucking perfect is that?
