No it is PC/XBOX 360.

It's the sequel to Elder Scrolls III - Morrowind which was voted best RPG of the year like several years in a row... this is gonna be a hard game to beat this year - the graphics are amazing.

OK a review:

The graphics are phenomenal. I mean like, best graphics in a game ever. I have a 7800 GTX and have it cranked up to 1900x1200 with HDR, and its like photorealistic. You can interact with anything. The physics in the game are crazy. If you swing one chain into another chain they will both start swinging back and forth like they would in real life. I've only just started and it looks like the kind of game you will be playing for months.

THe only negative parts of it is the interface. You can tell they designed the UI for the XBOX 360 and then moved it over to the PC. One button brings up your inventory/stats/quests/map, etc... Which sucks, but you get used to it.

Anyway.

My boy and his little brother live off this game and World of WarCraft. It's all they ever talk about.

Graphics are pretty sick though!!

I don't really have time to play an RPG... and no quick fix "kill shit" PvP either... it makes me sad... MMRPG are the way everything is going, they just need to figure out how to make the clients thinner so they can support something like this.

I was watching Rob play it last night.

The graphics are pretty awesome. The swaying grass and how they talk is pretty realistic. Rain falling looks surprisingly real too.

BTW he is a black vampire that was beat in the fighting arena by 2 chicks.

Problem.. the only way to play WoW is to gear up at 60... and that takes time, lots of it...

I just quit finally, I don't have 5 hours a day to devote to getting a goddamn Devout set or Druid peices... Im going to sell my account I think. 3 lvl 60s and a bunch of other lowers, some mad gear on the endgame characters... should bring a couple hundred.

I was a PvP god with a Druid, I can out-tank most Warrs, out damage most rogues, and out heal any priest... yea and you guys thought Clemson was a nerd, didn't you...
