    I want a commitment from someone to record it in 1080P. Sagethorn? lol. The only thing I hate about streaming is that the video quality always looks bad, but anyway, I hope we see something meaningful.

    There Is Always Hope!

    THANK FRACKING GOD.

     

    Now the rest of the world will be able to see just how unlike an Elder Scrolls game this is.  Unless they try and hide the linear quest hub design.  Hopefully they showcase it in all its blandness and will get the ball rolling on forcing Zenimax to create a true open, non linear, exploration centric world like they did with TES 1st Person.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    TES isn't 1st person only. That and if they allow good character customisability and a good story, it'll already be worth playing(in the same way you'd play singleplayer TES).

    That and I am a huge fan of TES(not as big as I used to be because I think that recent TES games have been too streamlined) and I don't remember when I simply ran out to the wilderness. I played TES for other reasons than that.

    Also, every TES has a quest hub if you think about it. Don't want to ruin anything, but what do you think Windhelm/Ald'Ruhn are? In their most basic function. The equivalent of say Rogue Encampment from Diablo. The three reasons why that wasn't visible: singleplayer game, good story and EQ/Vanguard design. Quest hubs are way more visible if you can physically see dozen people going to the same spot and talking to someone. Good story is like a mask-it hides the true nature of sth because your mind is focused on the other things(good example of this would be Gyorg from Majora's Mask-he doesn't even attack you yet his cool design+music hides that fact). EQ/Vanguard design means that you are free to Explore and to choose your quests. But you aren't-it's an illusion. And a good one at that.

    All in all, I'll be watching both EQNext and ESO on the same day! Simply glorious! Lovely!

    I wish i was going to be online to watch it live myself aswel, but heres hoping someone will be able to record it, that or they put it up as a video on their webpage.

    (i was hoping for a youtube link to be around the day after)

    Doesn't start till 1:30am local time for me and i can honestly say i wont be staying up to watch it after pulling a 16hr shift at work.

    Im not expecting it to be Morrowind with enhanced graphics, i sincerely doubt they will move back to the way the series used to be, its been slowly evolving with every new game.

    Just compare Skyrim with Oblivion, then compare Skyrim to Morrowind, everything about the series has slowly changed, aslong as TESO keeps to the lore, has decent crafting, large open areas and is fun to play i can honestly say i will have got my moneys worth.

    My only disappointment will be that its probly going to be on rails in regards to storyline, but yeah aslong as its fun to play and the UI and combat isnt to crappy ill be a happy camper

     I witnessed on another site just a couple of days ago a 45 minute video of someone running around on a horse. Not only did the world seem huge for the area that this level 8 was running around, but it appeared to be for the size of the area more open than any other themepark MMO I've seen with the exception of Vanguard. The world looked huge. I could be wrong, but that was my perception since the person playing kept opening his map and not once until the end of the 45 minutes did I see a map barrier which might have been a limitation of the current build.

    On top of that, there were random quests all over the place outside the cities...whether it was being ambushed by opening a chest, or NPCs running to you for help. The game appeared to be tailor made for true exploration and not as much on rails like SWTOR, Rift, or the fake exploration class that is the Explorer in Wildstar (should be renamed Platform jumper class)...of course being a themepark and not a sandbox the main story itself will most likely feel linear just like it did in every Elder Scrolls Game before it. It seems as if others have responded to you about this in the exact same way in the comments section of the article that this site published this week regarding skills. Do you just not want to see the response?

    Finally, as someone stated above, every game with a city is a quest hub. Maybe they should eliminate cities next?

    If this happened at release, my head would literally explode trying to figure out which game to play first.

    Are they trying to go head to head with EQN big reveal day? I think they may get less viewers as I am sure more people will be looking at what SoE has to offer that day. Guess I will watch it after the 6th when SoE live is over lol


    =-D Only on a forum can optimism be called bad and pessimism the good thing =-D Welcome to the internet and forums.

    No. This is happening at QuakeCon I think so it isnt like they picked the same date. Both things just happen at the same time.

    I am looking forward to it since it is supposed to be never before seen.. I am thinking its going to be Cyrodil and PvP.. I also hope there will be some PvE action too.
