    Since the earliest release date is 2006, it makes me laugh when people get all hyped over it *now.* That's always a surefire way to disappoint yourself.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    The AI system sounds amazing:

    Oblivion features a groundbreaking new AI system, called Radiant AI, which gives non-player characters (NPCs) the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. They'll decide where to eat or who to talk to and what they'll say. They'll sleep, go to church, and even steal items, all based on their individual characteristics. Full facial animations and lip-synching, combined with full speech for all dialog, allows NPCs to come to life like never before.

When they fight back against the arresting guard, the other guards see a fight and try to join in. In not too much time, every guard in the town was involved in the scuffle, which left the rest of the town open to thievery by other NPCs, resulting in empty stores. Much of the team's current effort is going into putting sensible governors on the AI's behavior to avoid situations like empty stores that would result in situations that wouldn't be fun for the player.

    Looks neat, but seeing it about a year or two away,
    so many things about it will change...
    ...hopefully better thought.

    And, im sure I'll need a new PC to run it too.

    is everything.
    I've been playing Morrowind recently again. Still an awesome game even now.

    Can't wait for the sequel...

    It does look really nice. I'm guilty of playing Morrowind for more hours than a person should spend on a video game so I'm really looking forward to a sequel.

    But given the amount of content that goes into an RPG, I don't think we'll be seeing it on the shelves for some time. Then again, they've given themselves a couple of years to get there.

    Not sure about the spoken dialog either. Often these games lose their personalised touch when a character can't even bring himself to say your name.
    We can't stop here... this is bat country
