Get it on PC. It looks nicer, plays nicer, and even once you're done with the game there's a wealth of user generated content.

Alrighty, I got the Oblivion Deluxe Edition that came with like.. everything..

I was a little suprised that once you exit the sewer it just drops you dead center in the middle of no where and gives you this list of like a dozen quests and thats about it.. lol.

I decided to run into the nearest town to steal as much stuff as I can find. :)

Is why you buy games on the pc instead of a console, most of the time.

This weekend I think I logged over 8 hours. I really haven't done anything except for scoping out the city area right next to where they drop you out of the sewer.

I was suprised at 1 thing which was that the DIFFICULTY slider is REALLY sensative.. if I drag it a few clicks to easier a mob that took several minutes to kill became killable in 2 shots... and the other extreme I beefed up the difficulty and almost got taken out by 2 rats that hit like semi trucks.

I kind of like it though because I can set it perfectly to make the mobs killable but slightly challenging.

Tip:

If you look at your map on your lower right, well the compass, you can see if there are towns or caves/dungeons in the direction you are heading. They will appear faded out if you have not discovered them yet, and brightly colored if you have discovered them. Dungeons/Caves scale to your level almost all the time so it's fun to go exploring too.

Yeah, Same here. I got the pre-order only 5th anniversary edition that come with buttloads of stuff and all the DLC =3. I was pretty damn late to the party (I got it like 2 months ago?) But I loved it, once you get over how over-whelming the amount of stuff you can do is, there's just so many ways you can take the game it's unbelievable.

Do they usually sell the physical boxed version in a store like Walmart? I want to get it for PC at launch and I'm considering getting the collector's edition.

edit: usually, as in for high-profile launches, not like usually when Skyrim comes out

I hear you. I singled out Walmart in particular because they usually have shittons of every game imaginable and are open 24/7 guaranteed. Not that I want to contribute to the downfall of my nation, but I don't feel like pre-ordering because I want to walk in at midnight and try to buy it, and if they don't have it? Whatever, I'll download it on Steam and play it at 3 am (EST).

Pre-order it. there's no reason not to. It's free, and you'll be able to get it at midnight.

If you want a collector’s edition you USUALLY have to preorder it because most stores will only order enough of the special editions for the amount of pre-orders they get.

In my experience if I slack off and not preorder i've never been able to get a special/limited/collector’s edition of a game from gamestop. However I have been able to get them from Target & Best Buy on release day.

If you know you're going to buy the game then I don't see any reason not to place a pre-order with gamestop though. Usually when I don't preorder it's because I had no intention of buying the game and then THIS GROUP (Maintankadin) changes my mind (See my signiture for details)

I'm a few hours into playing Oblivion, i'm hoping to pound out some serious hours on it before Skyrim to decide if I want it or not since this is my first time playing an Elder Scrolls game.. If I do get it I think I'll have to get the Xbox copy, I believe the controls would feel alot more comfortable, I have mixed feelings about playing Oblivion on PC because 1) I like having a mouse 2) Since the game is designed to only have enough controls needed to play with a controller it feels like i'm missing something when playing on the PC.

Even if a game flat plays better with a controller than keyboard and mouse, its still often better to buy it on pc if it is a moddable game. Which, given the elder scrolls series thus far, it likely will be. I mean, you can use x360 controllers on the pc, but you cant exactly load pc mods onto a console version of the game.

Damn you all to hell! Now I'm replaying Oblivion with the goal of taking over every guild. So far, I'm an archmage in the mage's guild, the guildmaster of the thieves guild, the listener of the black hand, and I'm about half done with my trip toward master of the fighters guild.

I'm also not just breaking the game, I'm shattering it like a clay pigeon. 100% chameleon is fucking HAX.
