Elder Scrolls IV: Knights of the Nine: "Prophet of Doom"
Posted: Tuesday December 12th, 2006 by

Knights of the Nine is the newest expansion to the Spike TV's 2006 Game of the Year, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. To get you on your way a prophet stands near a desecrated chapel in the town of Anvil preaching doom and gloom.

As soon as I read about the doomsday prophet, i thought of the hourly teasers for the evening news. I don't know about the 7 places I haven't lived, but everwhere else the local newscasters seem to enjoy dropping these disturbing little news-bombs on us just before dinner and refuse to give us pertinent information until later that night. And it's never anything good or noble, it's always stuff like:
"Seriel arsonist targetting people with hair"
"Rat poison mislabeled as salt and stocked on store shelves"
"Exploding rats escape college lab disappear into area neighborhoods"
You know... stuff that's fairly time sensitive and usually deadly.

So, thanks a lot local newscasters. You could have saved my whole family in the 30 seconds you just wasted blathering on about snow and the Broncos instead of filling me in on the potentially lethal porkchops i just purchased.

Back on topic, Oblivion is a great game, and from all accounts this expansion though straight forward and predictable is an excellent way to waste some time. If you already have it and are enjoying it, please let us know.
