    Hopefully this will be the game that Elder Scrolls IV could have been.

    Looking forward to it :D

    You shoot an arrow as far as i know. It's looking pretty good there, i might have to get it.
    Anyone else think that the protagonist's arms in the final screenshot look weird?

    I'm sure this game will be a lot better than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. It looks amazing.

    Wow someone must have read my mind when I was thinking about games I want. This looks fantastic (as long as load times aren't an issue) and will certainly be a must have for me.

    The demo was quite cool, but I have to say I'm not all that fond of first person swordplay.

    I think in this situation loose or shoot would be fine to use. One thing that is frowned uppon in archery is saying 'fire' as there is no such thing involved.

    Have to agree. I was one of the lucky bunch who got MP keys from bit-tech's contest (thanks guys), and seeing warriors in action is a pretty bad joke. Granted, M&M is a roleplay environment and shouldn't be all matrix-anime-prince of persia style, but the animations and maneuvers could at least look a little more interesting.

    Plus, the "target lock" mode kinda makes the experience a little on the easy side once you get good using it.

    I must say I was quite shocked to read that passage. Is that how low software standards have fallen - that the many, many bugs that exist in a released-to-public aka "finished" version of a game are fixed within a reasonable amount of time? Has QA gone completely out the window?

    Id love to try this demo but I cant get it to work. It plays the movies then the load screen comes up. After that it goes to a black screen and finally mm.exe crashes. :(

    My main problem with it is when you're getting a fairly limted ability to glance around without turning your whole body, limited peripheral vision, no real sense of where all of your body is, and less of a three dimensional view of how your fighting them - while it's obviously different in style and limited in number of moves, the PofP sword fighting style does allow you a much better sense of where you and your opponent are.
