I think it will be as drastic a change from dead island solo to co-op, solo was a great experience that made you always careful, always a little bit scared something might jump out at you. Then multiplayer was sso fucking hilarioius to play, me and my friend would just fucking run around the city looking for bricks and shit to throw at the zombies, knock them over, break their legs ect... (also the thug zombies are fucking hilarious when you break both of their arms and they attack with their head after that, we called them bigg'ns) I just hope that TES MMO tries to adapt to be more MMO style, because the SP experience sure as fuck wouldnt translate over.

A TES MMO would be awful IMO. The reason TES is so popular because the impact you can have on the world. If you become the Listener, you feel like you're at the head of the greatest faction of Assassins in Tamriel, and you're the one and only listener. In an MMO, if you can become leader ranks like that, there'll be hundreds of thousand of Listeners, and it defeats the purpose.
I regard that as fact. As for my personal opinion as to why I don't like it, is because I hate MMOs in general, and TES is my favourite game series of all time, period. Even my FJ avatar is related to my TES character.
My computer sucks for PC gaming, and guaranteed I wouldn't be able to run TES online, and so I wouldn't be able to play it, which would also piss me off.

Might be a pretty good buy if game play videos look promising enough. And on a somewhat related topic, I've been seeing some multiplayer mods for Skyrim on the nexus... Anything on there worth getting?

As much as I think Multiplayer is exactly what the elder scrolls needs (Seriosuly, finding the cool, awesome stuff hidden away in the mountains would be so much better if you could explore with friends). This game isn't being made by Bethesda so there is no way you can judge it until release. However from what has been shown of it, it looks like a World of Warcraft clone.

I honestly cannot see how that would work out, unless you had super awesome friends and you always chose to do the same thing, always, it would suck. Its not like the combat is very good, its not like there are any really good systems in the game. The allure is the discovery and storytelling of the game, the feeling that YOU are the one to defeat alduin, that YOU and the one who was the arch mage of the college of winterhold. I personally think that having others would ruin that experience. However i understand that people can be different and just because i represent the majority doesnt mean i represent everyone.

OH, i'm sorry storytelling? What? Skyrim, no, the entire Elder Scrolls series cannot tell a story to fucking save itself. I played twenty hours into Oblivion, I still had no clue as to what the story in the game was. I asked friends what they thought of the story and they stared at me with the same blank expressions I got when I asked what the story in skyrim was like when I was thinking of buying it. It's because of the excessive exploration value that 90% of the people that play the series haven't got a clue what the story is, Bethesda know this so they write as minimal a story as possible, as they know they can get away with it. The Exploration would be so much better if you could do it with friends, no one is saying you have to of course, you can still have your game to yourself. But why not have some Co-oP where all of your party where chosen by the gods to bring peace to all of Tamriel. Think of it like the Avengers, each one in the party Is a hero in their own right as they always have been, but together they can become an unstoppable force. Remember, the option would be entirely optional, it would just be nice if they included it for those who wanted it.

1. i want to see some real gameplay at least see the hud so i can see how it is. 2. the fact that they havent shown it from a 1st person perspective yet worries me.
User avatar #23307 to #23258 - nightmaren (05/10/2012) [-]
It was confirmed there will be no 1st person/
User avatar #23176 to #23169 - danielph (05/10/2012) [-]
yeah if it is it will be such a waste of potential. imo they should make a real elderscrolls game and do the multiplayer kind of like borderlands had it if they want multiplayer.

Exactly, a Co-Op Elder Scrolls would kick ass, I would be so much more interested in that series if I could play it with people. Apparently there are mods for Oblivion which allow this, Skyrim, there may very well be by now.
