WTF does that godawful trailer have to do with TES at all?

How badly does this trample on lore? And how exactly does a TES game work as a MMO? Part of what makes the TES series is the single player open world aspect.

I don't get this. How is Origin any different from STEAM?

Well, I think it's less Origin specifically that is the problem and more EA. People either don't like or don't trust EA and thus don't like or don't trust Origin.

Saying Origin is just like Steam isn't really addressing the underlying concern. I personally don't give a rat's ass about using Origin. In fact I find that my Origin ID makes playing across platforms with EA products quite painless. I just recognize what other folks see as the problem...which is EA itself. That is pretty understandable all things considered.
EA does suck. But a free game is a free game.....

Free?! What's the catch?

You just have to install Origin!

Sorry, too risky a venture.

I won't be playing this. I generally don't like MMO's. Hopefully, this will not affect the single player game.

While I agree it's better for the amount of items, it's just easier with the Workshop.

Easier yes but Workshop is much more limited. That's what people use when they just want easy 'one click' mod installs. There's a price to pay for such simplicity. Even Nexus Mod Manager is limited compared to Wrye Bash, Mod Organizer and TES5edit.

Fallout with Skyrim engine and Steam Workshop? TAKE MY KIDNEYS!
Don't need STEAM Workshop. There is already a Fallout Nexus.

Never played BL games. Seems like consolised Fallout clones. Or is there more to them than that?

Interesting. Frictional knows how to scare the shit out of people so I hope in this project, as long as they don't give their project to another dev house.

Can't help but think how awesome A Machine For Pigs would have been if Frictional had done the game and Chinese Room only supplied the story. A shame.
LOL. I think that I am the only who liked AMFP! It had story and atmosphere, which to me is what made ATDD great.

I am thinking systemshock right away Although I know it was not so high on horror but still !
SS scared the shit out of me, so I'd call it horror.

I know they didn't actually develop AMFP, but I'll be checking out reviews and LPs before I buy another game with their name on it. TDD was great, but I thought AMFP was terrible.
I thoroughly enjoyed AMFP. Amnesia is about atmosphere and story telling and it had those is spades.

I guess that the only one who liked and enjoyed AMFP! Lol!

Will they allow non-STEAM games to run on the OS?

No backwards comparability with 360 is a big mistake.

We'll see if Microsoft is stupid enough to continue down the Windows 8 path even though its clear that it's a failure. I'll stick with Windows 7, until it's time to make another PC buy. Time to look for a new non-Windows OS then if need be.

If you use http://startisback.com/ you can turn windows 8 into a proper desktop operating system, it not only brings back the start menu but can turn off all the metro bullshit like charms etc. There are enough improvements to the desktop space to warrant using it, just not quite enough to be worth upgrading from 7. But for a new system build I would go with 8 and then turn off all the metro crap.
This. I have done exactly that and couldn't be happier.

I'll wait. But I tend to do that. For example, I finally just bought Dishonored, only after it went on sale recently on GameFly for $23.99.

Does anyone remember that old adventure game Phantasmagoria? I kind of got the idea for my nickname from that. I miss those days... should really find those old games somewhere and install them again.
It's on GOG.

It can't read my CD anymore. It's got that weird thing where it looks like moisture seeped into the CD, which makes it unreadable.

/sympathies. Well, now you can play it again!

And nin, the graphics mod you referred to in an earlier post was probably Reborn. It has some glitches (eg the wrench model vanishes) but the overall impact is excellent.

My main gripe with the game is the infinite respawns - wish I could turn them off. I know it adds to the tension but I already finished it more than once and at this point I'm just playing to take in details I missed previously.
You can turn off infinite respawns in the game's user.cfg file with the "no_spawn" command.
