Neither Dead Space was the least bit creepy.

Have you played Amnesia?

OoT was creepy, though I probably wouldn't call it scary.

Amnesia was hands down the scariest game to ever be released. Some might argue with Fatal Frame but I haven't played it (don't kill me)

Yeah, but to claim that Dead Space (the first at least) was not "the least bit creepy" just because Amnensia may have been creepier doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I mean, I guess if you played the first game with the sound completely off, had the lights on and were surrounded by a bunch of people your experience may have been a little different.

I haven't played either Portal game yet.

read up a bit on new elders scrolls, still is kinda sounding like a pretty generic MMO from what it sounds like. But, remains to be seen. Interesting to see what Zenimax (not beth as people were saying) do with it.

Still is kinda sounding like a load of auld bollocks, you mean? Nords, Dunmer and Argonians are one alliance, against Bretons, Redguards and uh... someone else on the other?

Wrong. This is during the period in which they all lived in happy Carebear land right before the Daedra invaded.

Even in happy carebear land, there's no way the dunmer would ally with Nords and Argonians (!).

No.

This takes place in the second era, and the Nords were always hated enemies of the Dunmer.

This is fucking bullshit. All the lore goes right out the window.

Fuck Bethesda. Fuck fuck fuck...because I'm going to play it...*sigh*

and according to the details released so far it's supposed to be WHILE the daedra are attacking so not that I know much about lore but the alliance would seem to make perfect sense

the factions:

--Ebonheart Pact: The Nords, Dunmer, and Argoninans
--Aldmeri Dominion: Altmer, Bosmer, and Khajit
--Daggerfall Covenant: Bretons, Redguard, and Orcs

It doesn't make sense, none of this is in the lore.

The Nords (along with the Orcs) invaded Morrowind which forced the Dunmer to unite with the Dwemer to drive them out. And Argonians have been Dunmer slaves since ancient Telvaanni says.

The Aldmeri Dominion faction makes perfect sense, since they're all elves.

The Daggerfall faction also makes sense, since those provinces are close together, and Orsinium is in High Rock.

The best and worst part of this is that the Tribunal will still be alive. But Vivec without Michael Kirkbride isn't Vivec at all.

So the Khajiit are just Elves in fursuits then?

That's just it. They simply grouped them according to "close together" instead of historically, culturally or politically.

And this is why these bullshit MMOs still generate revenue: because people keep hating on how shallow, stupid and insipid they are, but those same people are always big enough morons to actually buy those stupid games.

Pretty much. That's also why they're part of the Dominion in Skyrim. They are indeed, Elves.

Since I already paid for TW2 when it was first released, I wasn't going to pay for it again due to a screw up when two services merged (note: Always use Steam when you can...), so I just downloaded the EE version. The intro is pretty cool too. Unless my memory is just that bad, the entire Letho opening is new.

Stormo: Did you catch the easter egg around the ballista in the barricade section at the start?

Oh, and the difficulty is uh...way lower than it was when the game was first released. Hard feels like normal now. One change that I agree with though is the ability to hit multiple targets that are actually in the path of your sword. You could not do this initially (you literally had to attack every enemy one at a time), and had to wait until you unlocked the talent from the sword tree, which was like level 8 or something. That change alone, made one of the most difficult fights in the very beginning laughably easy. That skill was relatively mandatory, but this change makes it so you don't have to dump points into the sword tree early on if you don't want to.

Ah, no, I didn't.

And I'm playing the regular edition (bought it retail when it was released), so I'm still on the Nintendo Hard difficulty
