The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game Of The Year Edition - PS3

I went out to Gamestation and picked Oblivion up for £12.99. I was going to get it last week instead of Killzone 2 but didn't. At least I've got it now!

Bethesda Softworks have done it again! They made Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas after this, but this is a prime example of where their genius evolved from. It is still of the First Person Shooter type with the familiar Freeroam aspect. I'm not sure whether to actually call it an FPS though because you don't shoot in it. I'll call it that anyway!

The story will probably take me too long to explain here, but basically, You are a prisoner who has to help the Emperor from assassins. He then dies and gives you a special amulet to give to some guy who will give it to the only heir to the throne who will then become the new Emperor. Yeah, that's about it so far!

You can still search dead enemies for loot, and wear armour and equip weapons etc. like Fallout and you can still only carry a certain amount of items in your inventory before not being able to move. So far you have to fight a lot of enemies like Zombies, Skeletons and other Bandits. You can make your own potions to heal energy, recover Magicka or recover Fatigue. Magicka allows you to heal yourself or even use arcane magic like fire, water etc. to hurt foes.

I haven't played it for long, but it basically plays like Fallout which is a very, very, very good thing!

Oh god you started playing Oblivion. You opened pandora's box dude. I have logged almost 100+ hours in this game already. This game is the reason I haven't started Fallout 3 yet. I keep getting distracted trying to beat every single side quest in the game which is taking considerable time!

It's ironic that you bought this game. Now that I beat GTA 4 I picked this one back up again and have played like 7 hours this weekend. I finally became a Knights of the Nine.

My character is a mage archer, who is is topped out in almost all major skills and a a few minor ones too. My sneak is so high that I almost don't need armor. I can pickpocket bosses and get away with it most times without a fight lol.

Definitely enjoy this one. I just own the regular edition so if you get into the expanded content blog about it.

Yep, will do! It's not a bad game, probs not as good as Fallout though. Haven't really played enough to know!
