  1. This is shaping up to be one of the better years for PC gaming with around two dozen highly anticipated titles poised for release in the next 10 months. BioWare released a playable demo of Dragon Age II yesterday, a demo of Crysis 2 is due next Tuesday, and Bulletstorm hit retail shelves just this week (watch for our upcoming performance preview). Getting in on the action, DICE and Bethesda have released the first glimpses of their forthcoming titles, Battlefield 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

    Skyrim looks fantastic on my 24" monitor. Just waiting on Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge for my new build later this year.

    I can see myself putting in 1K hrs. on BF3 over the course of a year. Skyrim should be amazing and hopefully a worthy successor to Oblivion.

    I hope ESV doesn't use the same engine as oblivion and fallout. after 5 years, it's time to change...

    I believe Bethesda has said that the engine will be a new one. And that the scaling will be more like Fallout 3 as opposed to Oblivion's scaling which was one of the biggest complaints by gamers. I do believe Bethesda has listened.

    Oh wow... BF3 looks simply amazing. Just hope the product we get looks every bit as good as that trailer.

    I think they are using a separate engine.

    So I guess I have till November to upgrade. I'm playing Oblivion with a bunch of visual mods installed, looks really awesome, but the performance hit is huge. I can only imagine what Skyrim will do.

    No, it's a totally new in-house engine.

    They both look amazing and I can't wait to play them come fall/winter. The music in Skyrim from Jeremy Soule is also incredible.

    Regarding the engine, Ruben & Rongxin are correct. According to Bethesda, "It's brand new... and it's spectacular!" which makes me want to touch it ;) .
