But, I am getting tired of FPS games. I find that I am wanting to play a good old fashoned RPG game again. When I finished my i7 Win 7 test rig I was looking at my game collection and with a hankering to play a RPG again I loaded Oblivion and I have rediscovered it.

It would be great if EA used their Ultima IP to recreate an Ultima based RPH or Bethesda cane out with a new Elder Scrolls. I am going to pass on FPS games for a while as they are all starting to feel the same, kill huindreds of (insert type of baddy here).

I have to say I'm disappointed in the change in art style.  I liked it much better the way it was.  I don't necessarily dislike the comic book art style, I just think the previous art style seemed like the right fit for the game.  Of course, since I haven't actually played it, I reserve the right to change my mind when it comes out.

Any idea if they plan to release gameplay video with the new art style. All these impressions are kinda stupid if you have to imagine everything.

 

From hell's heart, I stab at thee.

Isn't it a bit late for E3 impressions? It started 2 weeks ago, ended a week ago. Everyone else has already chimed in a million times over.

E3 started last Monday. The gaming blogs started posting leaked rumors two or three weeks ago. That doesn't make our impressions of the actual event any less relevant.

 I just love how games go these days. They either make a new genre
and succeed or fail, or mesh together multiple styles and succeed or
fail. I hope Borderlands succeeds.
