Oblivion interview with Gavin

Another Oblivion interview, courtesy of Jolt, that looks like a cut-n-paste job. The interview features Gavin Carter and same old "trust us, it will be awesome" info. Memorable quotes:
Hindsight is always 20/20, and I could certainly pick apart Morrowindâ€™s flaws. But at the end of the day, Morrowind was a critical and commercial success...Couldn't have described Oblivion better myself
I think itâ€™s fair to say that a game involving a demonic horde invasion qualifies as a dark gameI think it's fair to say that 9 out of 10 fantasy games feature a demonic horde invasion.
However, with Morrowind I think we saw that our kind of game appeals to a wider audience, given the gameâ€™s success among more casual gamers who are neither â€œhardcoreâ€ nor â€œRPG geeks.â€ It turns out people like the kind of options and freedom we give them, and the pretty graphics donâ€™t hurt either.More like, they like pretty graphics, and don't mind an occasional choice or two.
Some comic relief quotes:
Horses grant you a nice speed boost, as well as really help capture that feel of being a knight riding around on horseback.I guess it's still to early to release any details, besides, why spoiling the game? It's awesome, what else do you need to know?
But letâ€™s face it - when you talk about ranged combat in an RPG, youâ€™re talking about bows.
