    Somehow it looks even more awful (and banal) than the original. Apart from bloom and faces, that is - can't beat that.

    They want to make failblivion remake mod? They should try and make it the way it should have been in the first place first (and actually try to benefit from improved assets as well).

    All these people working on shitty remakes, and all I want is people to finish fucking OpenMW and have Tamriel Rebuilt completed.

    Despite my history with Oblivion, I am kinda curious to see what these guys do with the port.

    Face-lift is always exciting, for better or for worse.

    It looks more like face-drop, actually.
    Apart from the actual faces that is.

    Yeah but I think they're just starting out since they are looking for artists.. though I'm not sure why porting a game would require experienced artists.

    Though making a jump to Skyrim from Oblivion isn't really a big step, some artists manage to do amazing thing with shit engines.

    All the excitement of Oblivion's innovative setting combined with Skyrim's even more degraded game-engine for twice the decline! :M

    Found another video:



    Blinding. Not sure what's with the tree pop-ups. They must be porting trees without LOD (or less LOD states). Also, not really any visual improvement. Are they actually trying to keep the quality same as Oblivion and not improve it a bit? Can't tell.

    I still like the music though.

    Why does everything look so bright? It looks like when you come out of the swimming pool after a few hours of swimming around and getting bleachy water in your eyes.

    Is this was Skyrim looked like? How awful.

    I think that's rather meant to be a faithful recreation of Oblivion's look.

    I think it's the overdone bloom by the modders. The lighting in everything they've shown is completely shite, to be honest.

    Funny thing though, Oblivion originally had overdone bloom (+HDR) too, Skyrim doesn't. So while Bethesda learned, modders didn't.

    Can't forget such great moments:

    The whole point of remaking something in a "better" engine is to improve the visual quality and gameplay experience. If you're going to keep visuals shit, then what's the point? They don't even have to add better texture mods, what they have to do is to work on improving lighting and loading to make it better for most people.

    Deep in your subconscious mind spreading lies.
    Why do modders always choose to revamp old games of similar type in new engines? Why not port BG2 into Skyrim huh?! Or port Vampire the Masquerade into Fallout 4?! Sad. We could be playing Skygate: the Throne of Deus Ex, instead it's the same shite again.

    It's probably the same crowd who asks for remakes of games released less than 10 years ago.
