    First details emerge for Oblivion: Shivering Isles

    Very few details, but details nevertheless on the next Oblivion expansion.

    Check out the Headline for more info.

    There's more info in the february US PC Gamer as well I think.

    Sounds like it's mostly based on Sheogorath's stuff - which means lots of mad stuff going on. The landscapes meant to be a bit mental not to mention the characters.

    We'll have to see if it's rather limited scope though - my impression is it's about 10 hours worth, but I wonder if it's got something for all play styles, or if it's more for the evil type characters.

    I'm not sure if I can be bothered to play any more Oblivion, it's had far too much of my time in 2006. Doubt I'll download this one.

    Apparently it's supposed to be influenced by the quirkiness of the good old Lucasarts era.

    Spent more time modding Oblivion than actually playing it (still haven't finished the main quest!) though.

    I'm quite looking forward to this. I still enjoy Oblivion, I've completed the main quest, cant find any new side quests, completed the guilds, Nights of the Nine and I'm still hungry for more...
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    I'm still playing the original game - actually it's only after completing the main quest that I felt the game was really starting

    Of course I'm enjoying Gothic 3 and NWN 2 as well, but when I get frustrated with minor bugs in the former and system freezes with the latter I always head back to Oblivion for a spot of remarkably stable gaming
