Diablo® III

The Elder Scrolls Online

Heard about this game not very long ago on the D3 forums. Watched an introduction video on some of the basic systems, and I definitely liked what I saw. I bought skyrim a few days ago off kijiji for $20 just to get a daily dosage of Elder Scrolls games. Tryin' to sooth the anticipation.

If you haven't seen the video

Beware, it's pretty awesome.

It is exciting isn't it.

An Alpha Review video for your viewing pleasure.

Talks a lot about a few things from a players first impressions. In short, it blew his mind.

Some very interesting points on the pvp.

I hate when youtubers just repost videos. If the guy had added his own commentary or something, then I wouldn't care. Here's the official channel. I'd rather give them views since it's their content.

Now, with my pet peeve out of the way...

I'm interested in the game, but not excited. The first video doesn't really make combat look very fun to me. I'm willing to accept it's in Alpha and there's work to be done to make everything better so I'm not writing it off just yet. I love Jesse's videos anyway and his excitement does more for me than the official video does. I'm sure the game looks a lot better in person.

I'm really interested in the server technology they're using though. That actually has me excited. Just hope they can pull it off at the level they're saying they can.

Yeah, the introduction video doesn't go into much detail. Of course, if you played other elder scrolls games then you'd probably already have somewhat of an idea of what it'll play like.

The alpha review video gave a bit more detail, and it reminded me of Final Fantasy 11 a lot where you can combo off other players abilities (that was the most addicting part of FFXI). Also, during the alpha review video the publisher Jesse Cox says combat impressed him the most, blew his mind, and that's what he was most excited about for this game. I doubt there will be anything static about the combat. Which should make combat more interesting than other mmos.

I guess we just have to wait for Zenimax Online Studios to release more detailed videos.

edit: changed the link above ; )
