Actually since reading up on Fallout 3 (damn, I want that game), a lot of people have been talking about "problems with Oblivion" that have been addressed in the new Fallout game. Mainly the scaled enemy levels. That sounds absolutely stupid to me. Why the hell would you make enemies level up to match you? Isn't the point of getting stronger to be able to smash weak enemies that used to give you problems? I dunno, the more I read up on Oblivion the less I want to play it.
Morrowind is actually starting to get... well, I don't know how to put it. It's like the game is too big. A lot of times I don't know where the hell I am, and the missions people give me are all a million miles away in opposite directions. I always have five different things to do, so when I come across a little cave or something that looks like it might be fun to explore, I always think "well, I don't really have time... I've got to get to here or there and finish this thing for whatsisname, I'll come back later." I mean, two weeks into the game I finally get to Vivec (which is huge and confusing all on it's own) only to find out that it's actually just a two minute walk from where I started out. It would have been kind of nice to know that there was a major metropolis just around the corner from the dinky little fishing village I started out in.
And another thing is I've stolen so much loot and money that I'm absolutely rich, but I don't have a damn thing to spend my money on. You'd think that by now I'd come across someone with some kickass magic weapons or armor for sale but no... I'm still mobbing around with my plain old chain mail and a broadsword. Yeah, I come across magic weapons all the time, but so far I haven't found any that are better than my plain, old, non-magical sword because overall they just don't do as much damage. It's not even worth the extra weight to carry a magic weapon around.
And it takes forever to travel anywhere unless you take a silt strider. But if you take a silt strider, you don't get to see the world or get into fights to level up. So if I don't want to miss out on anything, I have to spend half an hour just walking to my destination. Argh.
Oh well, I'll keep at it. I'm sure I've just hit a lull in the plot and it'll pick up soon. I hope.
