    I'm actually somewhat glad that Bethesda hasn't confirmed anything for TES VI. Mostly due to the thankful amounts of restraint and the hopes that they'll actually think of adding classes, a multi-faceted guild system, a more compelling narrative, etc.

    Bumping up because we should always have a TES thread open.

    Been considering replaying Morrowind and Skyrim (screw Oblivion) for some epicness that few other games can pull off on multiple runs.

    Grr...I heard a rumor Beth isn’t going to talk about 6 this E3 which if true will REALLY piss me off esp since we got that teaser trailer thing oh so long ago now.

    Was so hoping for a current gen release but that is becoming so unlikely now.

    They literally said it was very far off when they announced it a year ago (within the context of it coming after another game that also had only a title screen). Current gen would be within a year at this point.

    Yeah 6 is going to be a next gen game. Lord knows why, when they can't even be bothered to update to a real engine. Those same graphics are going to look like crap compared to other stuff on the next gen.... but oh well, hopefully the game itself is good. I don't have a lot of faith in Bethesda.

    I do, however, adore Zenimax. I'm still playing my way through Summerset in ESO. Once I'm done with that I've got to play the next segment down in cat people land, woohoo. ESO continues to give me the best experience of Elder Scrolls, hands down.

    Of course, I still need to play Skyrim VR. It could take the top spot.

    After Fallout 76 and ESO Blades, faith in Bethesada is somewhat endangered.

    Absolutely. I take it Blades was terrible too? I didn't actually play it because I don't really do mobile games.

    It’s got typical free to play transaction crap buuuut because it’s Bethesda it’s also quite buggy.

    It's not a bad game, but the monetary component is predictably shady and underhanded.

    So Blades going to Switch. Will download then. Man the Khajit’s in ESO look like crap. I’m just going off what I saw of Elsewyr trailer earlier. They just look funky.

    Ha I remember when they couldn’t wear boots. Argonian’s either.

    Yeah now that Blades is coming to Switch, and since it's free, I'll probably actually download that.

    I think the Kajit look fine in ESO. Trailers aren't gameplay so it's hard to say why they look like that. But they look fine. Kitties.

    Digging out this old thread since I've got back into ESO thanks to playing with my cousin. We've been working our way across Vvardenfell, bringing back lots of nostalgia for me and new lore for her (she's only played Oblivion onwards). It's revelatory how much more engaging everything about the game becomes with just one second person to talk to and work on quests together. Before it was a massive struggle to work up the slightest enthusiasm, now I'm having a riot, finding fun quests, and recreating Revenge of the Sith:

    I have to get back into ESO. Every time I've been meaning to, it hasn't panned out.
