Wow, at first I was thinking "yeah okay these are just cinematic graphics" until they actually hit the gameplay portion. Really nice looking, I'm so exited.

I didn't know we had a video game thread. Probably because it's buried in some ass-backwards bullshit part of the forum I'd never normally look.

Anyway, Skyrim looks phenomenal. Absolutely cannot wait.

Also, everybody PLEASE buy this Wednesday on Xbox Live. Only $10 for an HD upgrade to one of the greatest games of the last generation. Plus, there's a good chance Ubisoft will be tracking the sales of this release to influence the chances of the game's in-development sequel actually seeing the light of day. So fucking cough it up.

I'll be buying that, as I never played it on the original Xbox.

JT shot me a bunch of times on Killzone 3 tonight. I dropped some mortars on his head to make up for it though.

And because of that, I can't do this quest, I can't fix Rex for another quest, and I can't do the quest that Dr. Henry is supposed to give me.

Furthermore, I can't have that addition to the end of my storyline, which bothers me.
I call it Fallout:Glitch Vegas

It was frustrating at times to play but well worth it. Working my may through the Game of the Year edition of Fallout 3 lately.. also enjoying Donkey Kong Returns on the Wii

It stinks when you're an achievement whore like I am...

Because I can't get to Dr. Henry I can't get the Jamestown quest achievement, I can't get the Arcade Gannon quest achievement, I can't get the get all companions achievement (because I cant get the Jamestown quest achievement).

My final slide for the ending was messed up because about 3 chapters of it were talking about people I had no control over/never got to meet.

Honestly, I know such big games are hard to control when it comes to bugs but a good way around it is to make multiple options to start quests/escape glitched spots, etc.

The game is smart enough to sense when you're physically stuck somewhere (you'll notice you are almost always unable to save in that situation). It should be unique enough to avoid bugged characters.

What's the difference between Battlefield and Battlefield Bad Company?

Holy shit, that looks awesome! I hope the consoles dont lose too much quality.
I bet the explosions look extra pretty from the inside. I look forward to having you drag my injured body there

It's actually a ton of fun. Just a ton of connection issues since launch, hopefully those will all be resolved.

How's the HD upgrade of Beyond Good and Evil? Have you tried it yet? I've heard some say the controls feel a little wonky.

I actually kind of enjoy Killzone's multiplayer. Anything with a decent class system automatically makes it a step up from CoD and Halo and the like. Still, never really liked how that series controlled.

I'll probably start BG&E tonight at some point. I could see the thing with the controls being an issue, as there were similar complaints when the game first came out. I'm sure nothing has really changed in that regard, but I don't remember ever having a problem with them.
