Put it another way, watch that gif and tell me if you can make out when right leg and left leg are going down?

Let's not get into over-analysis mode.

So rewatching the trailer it looks like the player absorbs something from the dragons he defeats. If Bethesda talked about that before then I must have missed it. Can anybody tell me what that is all about?

Completely agreed, the water stuck out like a sore thumb. But they still have months to work on it, and if they don't fix it a mod will. By the way, can't give Bethesda enough credit for continuing to support modding.

The shaky sprint-cam and the gruesome axe-chop makes me hopeful that they've taken notes from Dark Messiah of Might and Magic for movement and combat (as every dev should!), though some stuff still looked kinda "Elder Scrolls"-stale, so who knows!

You can also see a (scripted) example of the shout itself at 1:08 in the vid. Badass stuff.

You absorb a special move from each dragon you defeat.

Dovhakin (your character) can absorb the souls of defeated dragons. This makes him more powerful and unlocks dragon shouts which is the utilization of the draconic language. Essentially, the shouts cause magical effects like stunning opponents to slowing down time.

That part in the trailer when he yells, he's using a dragon shout.

EDIT: Beaten like a cliff racer.

That's a lie of course, given everything coming out in March, but I still have a few more days until DoW II:Retribution.

Completely agree. No HUD + beautiful open world + epic music = success

That rock formation and the clouded mountains give me great hopes about the world building in this game.

I see. I knew about them but didn't know that absorbing them from defeated dragons is how you learned them.

I wonder if it will be a fixed progression for the dragon shouts you learn or if each dragon will have a unique dragon shout. By that I mean will we be able to learn any shout we want right from the beginning of the game, provided we find the right dragon for it.

Bullshit. Unless a red name confirms you're an employee or gstaff confirms this, that has to be PC. I just can't wrap my head around this being console.

EDIT: Oh shit. I suddenly remembered that the Game Informer shots were pushing console.

My concerns on my framerate just evaporated.

Completely agreed.

I LOVE mountainous regions with sprawling forests and raging rivers.

We haven't really seen a game attempt such a geographical region yet on such an enormous scale.

Fuck me that looks incredible. Animation is a bit stiff, but that's such a vast improvement over Oblivion's people who seem to universally have joints made of tree bark. Skyrim really is an exciting game, and I can't see how the hype from that trailer is unjustified.

Bethesda, you are the man.

I mean, can you imagine this on PC now if that is just console footage?

Few game trailers make me feel the way that did. I'm now more pumped for this that Mass Effect 3. I didn't think that was possible.

A) I stand corrected. Sorry about that.

B) I'm still thinking this is bullshit. This on the console?!?

C) What the goddamn hell are the developers doing over there? Are they hooked into some kind of hivemind to improve draw distance and performance? Electroshocks if there is bad object pop up?
