Greg Kasavin’s 12 Hour Oblivion

Early next week, GameSpot subscribers will have a chance to get an extensive firsthand look at Bethesda’s next highly anticipated role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion…or rather, a secondhand look. They will be bringing a live feed of thier first marathon stretch playing the retail Xbox 360 version of the game and warn that any prospective players should be wary of potential spoilers.

GameSpot executive editor Greg Kasavin will be driving the game, offering commentary about the experience as it transpires. Subscribers will see a picture-in-picture view of Kasavin as he spends an increasing number of successive hours playing the game, and they will be able to chat with each other over the course of the event. However, Kasavin will not have access to the chat room, to avoid any outside influences on his time spent evaluating the game. Finally they tell readers to expect written hands-on impressions, HD gameplay videos, and high-resolution images of the game to appear on GameSpot during the course of next week.
