I am playing on the 360 and will empty the cache. BTW it that something you should do before every session or just when switching games or something? For the audio I will try tweaking the volume settings. Just seemed to me there was more and better discrete sound effects in “Oblivion” and the ambient effects like wind and rain also seemed better again maybe just a volume setting issue.
The look and variety of the county side depending where you are in “Oblivion” makes exploring fun. So far Fallout 3 is gray rocks and gray buildings and nothing interesting to collect. In Oblivion it was cool to clime to the top of a mountain just to check out the view.
I love open games like “Oblivion.” I generally don’t like being on the rails but most games out there are made like that which is why I generally prefer games that at least give some latitude like “Mass Effect” or “Bioshock” and of course the king “Oblivion” I guess I comes from my days of RPG playing before there were and “canned” adventures and each of us made and ran our own worlds giving people free reign to travel and do whatever they wanted as long as they didn’t get killed.
