I've never played any of the prequels to this game yet those images look sick. I actually have no knowledge of this game at all.
Also, I'm surprised I haven't ran into you at all UMD. I mean, it would be kind of nerdy if I spotted you at a bar and said "Holy crap thats umdnats!".
You should get it. I only played Oblivion a very little bit. It still looks so awesome. You can go anywhere on the map, any mountain you see way off in the distance? You can walk all the way there and climb that nag.
