    While Bethesda did the excellent Elder Scrolls, they have also made some really horrible games in the past.

    Still they regard it as a "big" title so I hope for the best as when they do go all out on a title it seems to work out well.

    Kinda bored of these "announcements of announcements" though.

    Fair point, E3 is gonna be pretty awesome as a result of it though. And you mean the excellent Fallout 3 as well of course [​IMG].

    Yay for Bethesda!

    Fallout 3 is awesome. It's such a great experience, all around very good atmosphere. I hope they get something like that on the Wii - not necessarily the same genre or setting as FO3 - but that "complete" feeling that everything in the game fits somehow. They're pulling off some real immersive gameplay.

    Fallout 3 is good, I'm replaying it ATM. To be honest, I found it to be just to similar to TESIV: Oblivion. But it's no Oblivion, and I love Oblivion... Fallout 3 was good, yes, but nowhere as good as the first two games.

    Anyway, I really hope it's something good. I wouldn't mind a TES game on Wii, even if it's something like Redguard or TES Travels [​IMG]

    Wow. That would be a complete 180 for them, considering what Todd Howard has said in the past. Of course, he's not the business end of the company. Will be interesting, to say the least.

    Oh yeah man, TES IV for the Wii!
    Bloody fantastic!
    I can't wait for the E3, it's always one of the most amusing times of the year IMHO

    Fallout: Animal Crossing edition.

    Elder Scrolls for the Wii would be cool.

    I think its safe to guess they'll start with a basic easy to grasp action game for their first Wii game.
    No one enteres a market with their best hit right off the bat.

    Really nice though to see more developers going for the more mature more core style games for the Wii.
    Kinda what you wouldn't expect with the games not making the big sales, but hey, they know who the "core" gamers are. We aren't as big as the "casual" crowd but always seek and buy top notch games, so the sales are always there, just not as big.
    Bethesda is making a smart move that'll make them look good among the core crowd.
    I'll be watching for their games for awhile.
