This was the latest date I heard. Anyone able to confirm or heard anything different?

I called around my local gaming shops today, they both said Thursday the 6th. I hope that date sticks. I've been waiting for a new RPG to play.

I'll be picking up my copy then. When I get it I'll be sure to post a full hands-on for you guys looking forward to the Box version.

Romi - What's your computer system like that you run Morrowind on? To what level do you have the graphics bumped up?

Even though I'm going to have my new workstation up this weekend (going to be sweet) I'm gonna try to play this one on the xbox. something about playing with THX Ultra 2 surround sound and a 55" screen that makes it a little more enticing than on my 19" monitor.. Posted Image

CC has it in their ad this week, but the one by me has none. The Sam Goody at the mall by my office had four copies that they already sold out (supposedly).

I play Morrowind right now with a P3 700, 512mb of ram (Just upgraded), 30 gig HD and a Geforce 3. I play at 1280X960 with AI distance set near low and view distance set to a little under halfway. The game runs very smoothly except when in populated towns, but even then its not bad. Turning on the the FPS meter I get around 45-50 FPS in caves and indoor areas. In regular outside areas I average about 30-35. When in populated towns I usually get around 20-25 with drops at times to 10-15 (Which isnt bad for this game. This is a slower paced game so high FPS in these areas arent horribly necessary)

I have also played Morrowind extensively on a close friend of mines computer (He lives a building down from me). He has a 1.8 gig P4 with a Geforce 30 TI500 and 256mb of ram. He plays with full view distance and AI set to high at 1024X768. Runs DAMN smooth but still suffers from minor slowdown in some of the highly populated area. Of course his computer puts mine to shamePosted Image. For some reason he refuses to bump the resolution up on his though. (I think he just wants to make me feel betterPosted Image)

Believe me when I get my hands on the X-box version I wil go really in depth on how the game runs compared to both PC's I mentioned above. I'll also be sure to mention what the view distance is like on the box version since I know that is also of interest to allot of people.

Posted Image I have people call me Rom (as in Rome) and that doesn't bother me.

I am still deciding whether to pick up the X-Box or PC version...

I am rebuilding my PC, should be done by the end of the week.

P4-1.6a @ 2.4
512 MB DDR333
GeForce4 4400 128 MB
Win XP Pro
SB Live
etc.

I should be able to run pretty smoothly at some high resoutions on my 19" flat-screen... or DD 5.1 on my 50" widescreen HDTV... decisions, decisions...

widescreen! Posted Image

Seriously, I'm getting ready to put together my new PC - waiting for the man in the brown truck to drop off a Coolermaster ATC-210 case as I type - based on a Athlon XP 2100+, but I'm still going to probably play on my xbox. Something about putting the HT to work that appeals to me a little more. YMMV.

Has anyone else had a store sales person tell him/her that the game would be on sale tomorrow, June 6? A Funcoland in Memphis, TN (I have to drive 1.5 hrs. to get the damn game because I live in the armpit of America) told me they'd have it. I don't know whether to get excited or not. What do you all think the possibilities are of it being on sale tomorrow?

Robert, I'd make sure by phoning and getting them to hold a copy for you tomorrow before you take the trip Posted Image

It could happen that they will have it to sell. The stores are allowed to as soon as the shipments come in as the official release date was supposed to be earlier this week.

Dean,

I've got my copy preordered, so if they don't have a copy for me, they're going to have one angry customer on their hands. But, hopefully that won't happen, and this time tomorrow night, I'll be in gaming heaven. I wish you all the best of luck in getting the game soon.

I have my copy in my hands as we speak. Unforunately I am at work. I will be getting home this evening at around 8:00. Once I play for a few hours I will be posting my impressions.

Really? Lucky bugger. Can't you feel yourself getting sick? A chest cold or something, maybe a bad back? Should probably go home and get some rest. Posted Image
