Upcoming nvidia drivers + Oblivion

http://www.hardocp.com/news.html?new...xobmV3cywsLDE=

Basically there will be new drivers out that will make Oblivion run better. I want to say more but I cant. Cause I dont know anything. I plan to play the game with my current drivers, currently being the Forceware 81.95 revision and seeing how the game runs. I'll check out some forums that specifically talk about drivers and the performance of games, then I'll probably update the drivers and see how the game runs, if I read theres no accidental explosions from the new drivers.

My system isnt the best, but its beefy enough to handle practically any game. 3500xp, 1gig ram, and 6800GT. So I'll give you my impressions on how it runs with the old and new drivers. This saying if the game allows me to run with the older ones. Might be some weird code where it demands the new ones to even render ****.

I hope they fixed the flickering problem with the 7800 series. It has been 7 months already!

Definately will be fixed.

You know I sometimes think we could post porn pictures in this section of the forum, and 9/10ths of the posters here wouldnt notice them. I think of it as being a travesty that some dont even know that other thread with the 189games previewed even exists. Probably too scared to see stuff they'd want to play.

So whos with me? Should I make a thread entitled Soldiers War: Fierce Battle, and place lesbian pictures in it?

I think the problem is, there isnt enough Halo on PC Alucard, thats why people dont come into this thread.

Is Oblivion going to be another first person RPG? Or can I play 3rd person?

There will most likely be the option to toggle, just like Morrowind had. But these games were always made to be in first person view because you were meant to be seeing the world through someones eyes. As if you were really there exploring. If you want third person rpgs on the PC theres plenty around.

first person swords just dont feel satisfying to me. like knifes in FPS's like the swords in SHOGO. The extent of what my elder scrolls experince has been was playing Morrowind on Xbox for about 15 minutes before i shut it off.

i guess im just a moron, but not only can i never "get" how to properly swing a sword in first person mode with a mouse, but it just dosent feel very fun that way (sound retarded i know).

but 3rd person sword battles (like the fantastic GUNZ) are really fun to me.

To be honest they work exactly the same in first and third person mode. I think you're after the ones where you only press a button for combos and not worry about anything else. The other kind is you press a direction and then the mouse button. So say you press forward, you will lung. Press side as you attack, you swing a wide arc. Its very simple.

I'm trying to remember a third person action rpg on the pc where it controls how you like...I CANT recall the name though. It had Vikings and axes.

First person swords just dont strike me as fun. Im not sure weither its the viewpoint, or using a mouse click to swing my sword. It feels like im playing Quake with only the Axe, so most of my battles consist of just and extreemly zoomed in First Person view of a monster and my clicking like mad.
