I don't remember the last time I payed over $25 for a game but I may have to make an exception for Morrowind. It should be at least as good as Daggerfall (which I loved) and probably much better.

I think I'll order online, though.

This is going to be one of the greatest RPG of all time. I'm going order it on-line. Waiting for it to arrive at the local Wal-Mart is just too painful (sadly, the only place where I can buy games locally)

<< Why are you excited about this game? just wondering why everyone is so excited. >>

Well, I think a lot of people really enjoyed the huge gameworld and open-ended gameplay of Daggerfall. You could do just about anything you wanted to...heck, there was no need to even begin the main quest if you didn't want to. Morrowind should be even better since the world is entirely hand-crafted this time (not random) and the graphics look simply amazing.

Of course, some people don't like that kind of play and prefer focused, shorter games (eg Diablo). You can't please everyone. Anyway, here is a list of known Morrowind features.

I plan on having it in my hands around 3:00 tomorrow. I so CANNOT WAIT. I called to save my copy today at EB and they said it will be there tomorrow and when I was done he said "see you tomorrow" which gives me the impression that they have it there and can't sell it till tomorrow.


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Hehe, Maleficus can't understand why this game is going to own. He must not have seen the list of amazing features this game boasts nor has he probably seen the ingame footage. This game is going to be an RPG to remember.

I preordered the collectors edition from their website and got my email that my order has been sent. *anxiously waiting*
In the mean time, I've looked past Dragon Warrior 7's ugly graphics and been playing it to some extent.

I upgraded by video card from a GeForce2 GTS to a Radeon 8500 LE for this game. Can't wait to play it, although I'll probably wait until after finals to pick it up, or I'd be screwed as far as grades go.

Wow, that official site is very CPU intensive. I have a 600MHz PIII and my CPU usage is around 88-90%

Yeah, it's *really* slow. The forums there are even worse...I gave up visiting them after pages started taking 2-3 minutes to load at peak usage.

Will an Athlon XP 1900+ and Retail Radeon run this game smooth on an EPox 8KHA+ with 256mb DDR at 1280x1024?
