Bethesda's Pete Hines is encouraging child abuse in the name of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. If you're expecting a baby to arrive on Skyrim's launch date of November 11, 2011, the developer will offer a special reward to anybody who calls their baby Dovahkiin.

According to the pretend language of Skyrim, Dovahkiin translates to "Dragon Born." The reward that Pete Hines is offering remains a mystery at the moment, but Bethesda promised it "will not ultimately justify the potential teasing your child could - and probably will - endure over its lifespan."

So, if you are a heartless sociopath and you're having a baby on 11/11/11, give it an awful name so Pete Hines can give you a present.

Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio.more

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.more
