    I liked the vaultboy animations they released prior to the game releasing.

    World design, interiors, build variety, far distance rendering, the PC port itself. Not saying it's amazing or anything but I'm going to give credit where it's due and say that it's the best thing "Bethesda" has shat out since Morrowind and continues the trend of everyone outside of Bethesda Maryland themselves treating their IPs better than they do.

    Assuming the leak is genuine, it sounds a lot like what allegedly went on during the Anthem development, a big project very different from things the studio did before and apparently no one has a vision of what the game should be resulting in literally years being wasted putting stuff in and taking it out again, also there seems to be some conflict between different Bethesda offices, just like with Anthem. They could just go for Oblivion with rayguns, at least they'd know what they are supposed to be doing.

    It's his dream project (check the IGN Unfiltered vid) and he's the Project/Creative Lead. It's gonna be as Todd as it can get.
    However, if they can make Skyrim in space, it's gonna be worth checking out at least for virtual sight-seeing.

    After Bethesda's output of the last few years even Skyrim in Space is fabulously optimistic.

    I pretty doubt that Starfield will be a hard sci-fi game, especially knowing the previous works of the people who will probably work on it. I suspect that it will be more like generic space opera and average at that as well.

    Huh, I hadn't been paying any attention to Bethesda so I had completely missed this. I am mildly intrigued, world can always use another space sandbox.

    I have to admit that if you take an elf from the magickal forest and call him a Vulcan from another planet, I'd be way more interested in the same kind of crap.

    Imagine though, this is the first Bethesda game they have to create their own lore for to butcher.

    ....

    Meanwhile at Bethesda:

    "Guys, how do I turn off gravity? If I set it to zero, I get a divide by zero exception."
    "What? Why do you want to turn it off?"
    "The planets keep falling down..."
    "Goddammit, Bob! We talked about this! You don't turn off gravity, you give everything the same weight, so everything falls at the same speed-"
    "-so the player can't see it, I remember now! Thanks!"

    Well they did create TES universe. And some of the guys from the early-mid 90s are still there. Todd Mentioned that they have a lot of 20+ years veterans and he isn't the most senior member of the dev team (he started in 94, right after Arena).
    Say anything about TES, but it does have some cool lore (even tho you have to read literal books in-game to get to most of it).
