    I've been playing this one a bit (2, 3 hours) and so far I like it. While I was familiar with the Elder Scrolls games, this is the first time I play seriously (so far).
    I love the liberty the games give you, specially this one, while a little scary (freedom, horrible freedom!) I think it's just plain fun to to hacking goblins around.
    Has anyone actually finished this one out?

    BTW There was announced a port for PSP: Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion, but I think it got canceled =(

    I've played 80 hours, beat the main quest and become leaders of all the factions, as well as beat Shivering Isles - have you updated to the newest version? Qarl's texture mod is great.

    Ah, how does that look? I never heard much news about it or comparisons

    I suggest you do the Mage Guild quest right away, becoming the Arch Mage gets you a lot of bonuses (the ability to enchant your own items and make your own spells)

    Looks great, but I guess not as good as a really high end PC, much less with that mod you mention.

    Well the PC version came out much earlier, so they could have improved the graphics over the standard (non modded)

    I have no idea. Altought, I do find the game a tad slow at some points, I mean is not that I want all ACTION, ACTION, ACTION, but I don't know, feels tedious on some parts like talking to people.

    As soon as I was arch mage, I made a spell that made people have 100% disposition towards me for 3 seconds on touch, so I could just use it and get what I wanted fast

    For some reason, I liked Morrowind better over this one. Oblivion may have better graphics, but I feel that Morrowind had a better story and feel to it.

    theives guild and then dark brother hood should be done first
    the gray cowl will prevent you from getting in trouble with the guards from dark brother hood missions and also will protect you because some missions you have to kill mages and you will be kicked out of the mages guild if you do it

    I did mage guild first and didn't get kicked out for Dark Brotherhood, you can make your own spell that will make you invisible if you are the Arch Mage. You could also enchant your armour with chameleon. (I added 10% shield to all of my armour, the max is 80%)

    I have beat every bit of the game.
    Hey V-Voltz there is a way to duplicate items in that game by hundreds.
    When I was last playing it in March it would work.Do'nt know if any update got rid of it.
    Wanna know how.


    Edit:Wait....I don't know if it works with the PS3 version since I have a 360

    Edit:If you do the DarkBrotherhood and the guys gives you a knife.Store it because at the last of the DarkBrotherhood missions the power of that knife is amazingly powerful.

    Also to get into the DarkBrotherHood kill someone innocent and sleep.

    I had a 80+ hours game on the 360 and almost two games as long on my PC!
    One of my favourite games ever [​IMG] I loved the 360 version so much because it's certainly the most beautiful.
    Py PC has kinda low specs... and I don't like gaming on PC... but I still did play the PC version because of all the mods [​IMG]
    Just toying with the thousands of available mods was wonderful. I love the high-customization mods such as musics replacement, new races, new weapons, etc. You can make a whole new game!

    Finished on 360 with over 400 save files (took me nearly an hour to delete them all) and 180hrs+ game time. Finished all main story quests, factions, side quests and expansions. Got 1230/1250 achievements (damn you 20 points from Shivering Isles!!! Think it's glitched!).

    I found the easiest way is to save just before character creation at the start, and make a guy specific for each faction.. Easy!

    If you need any help or get stuck PM me I know the game inside out. Some crazy mods for PC version but also on 360 version theres been a lot of progress.

    I got kicked out of all guilds for cloning myself and killing it.
