Forums around the net are buzzing with the news about Shivering Isles, which is supposed to be a major expansion for Oblivion.

There is a preview in the February ’07 issue of PC Gamer on the expansion, and some of its text has been reproduced on the official forums.

Have to say, I’m not too thrilled with the idea of going to a “madhouse island” myself. Of course, that’s based on the little quoted in the message; I haven’t seen the complete article.

Then again, deciding how a group of adventurers should die is a bit too nasty for me; it’s not my idea of fun. Whatever, I’m certainly going to wait awhile after it comes out before deciding to get it.

Also, there was some talk that the price might be around the same as the original game. If that’s true, I may wait for the “GOTY” edition in the bargain bins.
