Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Oblivion Gone Wild

Posted on Wednesday, April 5 @ 19:02:01 PST by dUKE
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has been getting great reviews (because it's a darn good game), but has recently been causing a stir because of its micropayment system... and more.

All first party downloadable extra content from Bethesda will cost you some real world cash, and many gamers are pissed off. The first one is already available: some armor for your horses. Those horses really need some armor too, as mine kept getting killed. The cost? Two bucks. Seems pretty chintzy on the part of Bethesda, that's for sure. But if you look deeper, there's another side to it. The next two planned updates, Orrery and Wizard's Tower, add at least one new quest, new content and a new area. They're both $2 as well.

So throw in that horse armor and buy all three... Now you're getting essentially a small expansion pack with new items, new spells, new locations and new stuff to do, for $6. Somehow that seems more palletable than when it's cut up into bite sized portions.

However, that's not enough controversy for a game as big as Oblivion. Want some free aditional "content"?

It's time for some Hot Mead! It now appears that the game shipped with a topless female character model on the disk. A patch to automatically switch the file is already available for the PC. So if you can get any of the girls in the game to take their shirts off, they no longer have bras on underneath. Just like in the 70's. Unlike GTA's Hot Coffee, there's no sex minigame (that we know of) and the ESRB description of Oblivion includes "Sexual Themes", so hopefully nobody will go berserk (other than some deranged lawyer).
