Oblivion: Three days to go

Oblivion: Three days to go

Bethesda just released the fifth countdown trailer for Oblivion, presenting some dialog from the game. Impressive faces, seems like they've done alot of work since E3. I put up two versions, as the original file was really really dark - the original file, and a must brighter version gamma/brightness-wise. With the second one, you'll be able to see graphical details much easier.

The reencoding resultated in a much lighter video, gamma/brightness wise. I was going to remove it, but then I thought it just was better to have it there. The original video was really, really dark - now can you at least see the faces.

Hmmmm... After seeing video's of this and more and more screen shots, its starting to loose its hype with me... the textures just arent looking as great as first sighted.. im starting to think it might look alot better or those screens we all gandered at before were from a high end pc verison.... just my 2cents

I think that besides the first woman seen in the video, the faces and textures look quite good. I mean, they don't look especially real, but they have kind of a fantasy quality to them which fits the game well. For me, these countdown videos have only served to increase my anticipation of the game.

Since the Xbox360 version looks just as good, if not better than on a high end pc, that wouldn't matter. Apart from that, you can look on the elderscrolls website to see the confirmed Xbox360 screenshots.

Nope, these countdown videos are a mix of PC and 360 versions so what you are looking at is how the game will run on both systems.

Another great video, btw the 3d character u see is a vampire :D

The facial animation is excellent on the humans, non-humans look a little weird but I guess that's because they are non-human! :P

You get to hear a bit of Sean Beans character. Can you guess which one :)
Commented on 2006-03-18 22:52:12
Oh well i'll be enjoying the game forget what the idiots think :)


First ghost recon sucked graphically now this game apparently isn't up to people's standards. This game will look MUCH better on the 360 than it does in any video or screenshot. bah oh well just don't buy it if you think the graphics suck :D

i see what pc gamer are saying now though, the faces show NO emotion, they should have looked at half-life 2's facial animation.
Commented on 2006-03-18 23:58:30
The "exposed" version sucks. It shows the terrible texture work. Not meant to be played like that so I guess there's no problem. The graphics downgrade for this game have been a dissapointment, that I have to say.
Commented on 2006-03-19 00:23:20
Wow, the faces look really good.

    droezelke First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (8 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (49 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (53 minutes ago)

  • asdfg
    asdfg @Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (1 Hour ago)
