I hadn't heard anything about it.
Oblivion was okay, but it never dragged me in the way morrowind did. Probably didn't help that there were other games out at the time I enjoyed more.
On the gaming rut note, the one good thing about playing MMOs is that there's always new content coming out every few months. LotRO has a big update hitting Tuesday I'm looking forward to.
The bad thing about MMOs is that it kills all my other gaming. I still haven't played Fallout 3 past level 10 or so.
