@oldguy: Look up the thread, the megadownload link where you can download all the episodes is linked to twice.

I would not be surprised at all if that were Zelda. Aside from the face everything about the torso says "young woman in boy's clothes" to me.

... are you hacking the Gibson?

I'm about ten minutes into this Nintendo Direct.

It is amazingly horrible, but not in an entertaining way.

Mario Kart 8 looks great, though.

@jensejar002: Just to clarify my earlier post: the 5 minute initial load time is because of the imperfect XBox emulation on the 360. The original didn't have that. Also the framerate seems worse than I remember. A lot of the XBox backwards compatibility is hit or miss.

But I have a real hard time telling someone not to play Morrowind as it is one of my favorite games of all time. And if you were crazy enough to enjoy Oblivion after playing Skyrim first you may have the fortitude to get some enjoyment out of it.

It was released on the original Xbox, and I guess the 360 may be backwards compatible with it. But, in general I don't think that's the version anybody would want to play. As I recall it the game cut to loading screens pretty much all the time, because of the machine's inability to hold a lot of stuff in the system memory.

I'd say that it cuts to loading screens about as much as any other Elder Scrolls games on console.

Wasn't Skyrim largely without loading screens when you traveled the world by foot? I seem to recall Morrowind on Xbox cutting to load in stuff regularly even when you did that, not just when entering buildings (like the PC version did). And the load times were quite long too.

There's occasional loading in the open world but it's literally a second or less.

@jensejar002:

As someone who loved and played the crap out of Morrowind on the XBox, it's pretty damn hard to go back to on console. I've messed around with it and it's a little buggy, the initial load to get into the world is like literally five minutes (but after that it seems fine.)

here's some video so you know what you're getting into.

if you're going to take the plunge make sure to get the "game of the year" edition that comes with the pc expansions.

Looking at the wikipedia article it looks like there were plenty of news reports and eyewitnesses to the original burial. This should have never been considered an "urban legend" or "rumor" so much as just a thing that happened.

@soup_menu: have you thought about adding a download(s) finished sound cue? It's about the only thing I would add to this app.
