Man At Arms latest videogame inspired creation is the Orc Axe from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The coolest aspect of this creation is how the blacksmith made the weapon look as if an actual orc would make it given that they wouldn't have access to power tools and the like. Neat!
Dark Souls 2 is all about going in, guns blazing, and hoping to God it works. Oh dear.
Namco Bandai's PR chief recently shone a spectacular light on the broken mentality of "AAA" publishers, describing the promotion of high profile games as something akin to a spray n' pray crapshoot. Despite the first Dark Souls showing the world how real success is won, it appears lessons will not be learned.

Musician Sarah Schachner did a little arrangement where she covered the Halo, Modern Warfare 2, and Skyrim themes back-to-back. The covers sound wonderful, and it's all even more impressive once you see that Sarah played every instrument herself.

Bethesda has today announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition. Can you guess what that means? Did you guess a rerelease of Skyrim with all of the downloadable content? Wow, you're psychic!
Released on June 7 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, the Legendary Edition includes Hearthfire, Dawnguard, and Dragonborn, along with updates that include mounted combat, combat cameras, Legendary Difficulty and Legendary Skills.
And so soon after the PS3 finally got all the DLC, too! Damn.
The new release will retail at $59.99 if you're interested.
Bethesda may be done with Skyrim now, but the fans will never be stop. Mods will continue to come, like this latest one by modder Higeyoshi that adds the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Skyrim.

Hello boys and girls, here's today's Destructoid Show for you to rub your dirty little eyeballs all over. Mmmm. Yes, just like that.
Bethesda is done with Skyrim, and they've now begun teasing their next exciting mystery project. Killer Is Deadhas dirty nasty sexy gigolo missions for you to do when your parents aren't in the room. Respawn Entertainment trademarks "Titan," whatever that means. XCOM promotional materials are disappearing from the web, possibly to pave way for a rebranding, and Lobo is the first DLC forInjustice: Gods Among Us.
The game industry tells us many things in order to justify its various activities. Multiplayer is added to so many games because solo experiences are dying. Online passes are needed because used games are killing creativity. Creativity is dead because new intellectual property is too difficult to establish.
Despite these claims, there is much evidence of success to the contrary. Single-player games that sell well, releases that survive without scads of launch day downloadable content, and companies that are doing just fine without having to wage war on the used game market.
In my opinion, Bethesda has been one company that really goes against the grain. As a publisher of what's called "AAA" games, the company has had success with such games as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fallout 3, and Dishonored -- each game bucking "AAA" trends in some way or other.
Why, exactly, is Bethesda able to get away with it?

I was recently listening to a keen little gaming podcast done by some friends of mine, when they got on the interesting topic of what common game review critique they would outlaw, if possible. After a bit of thought, they unanimously agreed that they were tired of baseless complaints about game length, something I definitely agree with.
Bethesda has opened up testing of features coming to the next update of Skyrim to those who opt in to the beta on Steam. Version 1.9 will add a new difficulty setting and allow players to tag any of their rating 100 skills as...
