Default Re: Elder Scrolls V - Part 5

When did they tease a new game as Skyrim DLC? They just teased something new coming, it was the games media and everyone else who assumed it was Skyrim. As one Bethesda rep tweeted before Dishonoured was announced, 'We do make OTHER games besides Elder Scrolls'.

This

And it's from the same tweeter account where that picture initially came from too.

I saw the pic and i knew immidiately it wasn't Skyrim.The model is different from the one they used for Skyrim. Initially i thought it was a fallout 4 teaser...hehe

I didn't think it was Skyrim DLC when it was released since it did looked too good. I just remember it being posted on Kotaku with the title "Is this Skyrim DLC" and everyone speculating about it.

But like I said, this "announcement" was just pointless. We already knew it would be Dawnguard back in late March. Give us a brief description or even a tagline to hint what it's about, something more than a picture anyone could have made in Photoshop.

It was discovered that Bethesda filed for a trademark of the name Dawnguard.

Oh come on, Bethesda knew exactly what they were doing there. They released a teaser image of a guy who looked like a Nord that would be right at home in Skyrim (even if the artistic style was off, it wouldn't be the first CGI trailer) with caption "tomorrow." They were using Skyrim and the fans expectations to build hype.

Right, because a dirty looking dude can only be found in an ES game. They didn't do anything to push that reveal towards being an ES game. They just dropped the image. It was the fans fault for trying to link it to ES. Maybe if the word "Tomorrow" was in the same font as "Skyrim", then maybe, but it wasn't.

The marketing people at Bethesda are smarter than you give them credit for. They knew damn well how fans would take that and they used it to build hype. I am not passing judgment on that one way or another. I actually think it was a really smart tactic. Got people talking and got people to watch what they revealed. But I tend to think that they knew releasing that particular image would cause fans to link it to Skyrim.

As for this one...teasers for teasers are just stupid. It's not like it ruins my day or anything, but it is dumb.

People were complaining that Bethesda, since the launch of the damn game, said nothing about DLC, or Expansions or whatever...

When they do.. It's dumb.

Gamers... Go figure.

They never will be. Todd Howard makes it a point to keep these games single player. They just work better that way.

I'd be cool if they took the world of Elder Scrolls and gave us an online spinoff. Don't do what FF did and make the online games numbered parts in the series but The Elder Scrolls Online: Bloodmoon or whatever could be cool.

Keep an eye on Zenimax Online. I wouldn't be surprised if we started hearing about exactly what you're talking about very soon.

I just hope it comes to consoles. At this point I'd say I'm done with having a desk top in my home. Between tablets, phones and other devices.. I don't really need one anymore.

So, uh, is there a way the merchants can have more bartering money without using that Speech perk? It's stupidly annoying how little money they have. The most I've seen one person have is like $1100 and meanwhile I'm trying to unload a crapload of heavy armor/weapons worth $4000+.

It's lame to have to travel from town to town trying to unload all your stuff to earn some cash. I wish they would've raised the money per merchant a bit.

You don't have travel around, I think you can just wait a day if you're really desperate to sell stuff.

But each merchant still only has 1000 gold, which sucks because most of my stuff is worth upwards of 4000 gold each. I was just wondering if there was a way to increase how much gold the merchants carry or if they increase naturally as you level, but I'm level 43 and it still hasn't gone up so I'm assuming not.
