The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Ahh Oblivion. If you were a woman I'd take you to Thy bed, and not leaveth for a yeareth. But to be honest, before you start to play Oblivion make sure food and beaverage have great bounty, as you won't be leaving the four walls of your room. It sucks you in, with an epic journey, character customization, weapons, missions, guilds, and storylines left and right. You'll have both hands clutched onto the remote like a homeless man is try to rip it from your grasp. Make that a homeless family. But one of the first things I noticed in the game is the weapons. I think for having such a good engine, and being able to leave drop something on the ground and come back and pick it up weeks later is amazing. But I think if they could do all of that, we should  be entitled to more than a handful of weapons. I loved the missions, especially the darkbrotherhood ones. They got a little old, but were still intertaining. I just think its a bad idea to have side stories more interesting than the main story. When the Bruma Mages guild got destroyed pretty much, I was in shock. And it made me want to get revenge. Everytime I opeened a gate of Oblivion however, I didn't want to go in. Because I knew what was in store for me EVERYTIME. I love the gray fox. That was an amazing idea, and I loved the Gladiator fights in the Arena. This game is a awesome game and I would recommend it to everyone. Especailly people who love RPG'S, but even the ones who don't will find something to love here. I think Bethesda did a great job. And they'll know how to fix what they messed up in Elder Scrolls V. Whenever that may be. I give it a A- for kicking some medieval a$$.
