Oblivion

So with Skyrim just over the horizon, I figure I would post my opinions on oblivion, and other things related to it.


So, Oblivion, probably one of the best games i have played in my short existence. The Story, I mean that book you get to play in side of as the main character. I completely and utterly loved the story line. At some points I felt compelled to do the action just out of personal character, like saving a kitten out of a tree, it just felt right. I couldn't put this game down when i started playing it, I had to beat it in one sitting, (as much displeasure that caused my parents ahaha), it just drew me in.

The gameplay, to me was awesome, other then the magic which i used never. I could never seem to figure the whole quick spell switching, thinking about it now, I'd use the term clunky, just wasn't a smooth transition between spells and it was just to much for my younger self to deal with. So i stuck to thwacking the shit outta my enemies. :D The Melee combat was extremely easy to pick up, smack smack, block smack, so of course for me easier controls the better.
(ignore, buy car insurance online, consolidate graduate student loans, refinanced second mortgages, raid server data recovery) 


All the Extra Stuff, man holy man, I think when i was playing, i believed that each guild quest line was as long as the main quest line, so i mostly ignored the guilds on my very first play through. But when i started dealing with the guilds, i found that the dark brotherhood was the first one i started playing with, well as it seemed the easiest to do, go kill an innocent person and boom, your invited. As a 12-13 year playing this, It was on the edge of ridiculous badassery to be an assassin. so of course that was the only guild i ever dealt with, untill i picked it up again recently and wanted to enjoy all the guilds and DLC which i don't know was around when it first came out. I have to say though my favorite guild has to still be the dark brotherhood. Thieves guild comes in a close second though. Gotta love sneaking around stealin and murderin, gotta hide yo kids and hide yo wife, else i might've murdered em all and stole all the shiny objects :d. Out of all the DLC, My favorite HAS to be the thieves Den. I really like the fact that you could send out a pirate crew to go plundering and robbing out on the high sea's for you. I never did get to play the fighters stronghold DLC, so i don't know if it would be my favorite or not. But Frostcraig and deepscorn hallow just didn't match up to the thieves den in my eyes.


 Now, Those of you whom played Oblivion on the pc surely know that it can be modded to the kajesus, and it becomes a completely different game, that just happens to look the same. I happened to come across this mod pack, the instructions where extremely easy to follow, but low and behold, my computer could not run it in the slightest. all the beautiful new stuff i could have experienced, died and exploded when my computer was too old and run down to be able to play it. Oh well, Here's the mod pack. Yes it a torrent, but every single item inside of it 100% FREE, so you are not pirating any kind of software in the slightest. Tcom v2 To me the instructions were very clear and precise, make sure you follow them to the letter else it will probably backfire in your face.

The video is from one of the mods inside this pack Called Fcom, I could never get it to work for me, and the pack made it unplayable on my PoS computer. I Hope you good luck and many fun adventures in this mod pack

And this concludes my oblivion post, i hope you enjoyed reading my ramblings.

  7. I honestly wasn't that overly impressed with Oblivion, having played it on 360, but I've heard that a lot of the greatness of the game was in the modding done to it. I'm going to have to give Skyrim a try on PC and see if I like it.

  22. Thanks for the review of the DLC especially. I only played the original about %50 through because of how huge the side quests are. I think I might go back and check out some of the DLC now...

  23. Thieves Den, Wizards tower Vile lair, and fighters strong hold are al player homes, you upgrade them and such Only Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles add more quests, similar to the main story and guild lines.
