The world of Skyrim: It all looks rather splendid


6:30 PM on 11.08.2011



As if to mock us mere mortals who have yet to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda have thrown another video our way. There's not much action, but there is a lot of scene setting. It goes a long way to show how much more diverse Skyrim is when compared to Cyrodiil in Oblivion. It all looks so wonderful that I almost didn't notice that we didn't get to see a massive dragon barbequing some poor clueless sod.

I'll have to wait for over a week before I have time to play it. So thanks Bethesda, you've just made a grown man weep. But just a little. For the rest of you it drops in a couple of days, but who didn't know that already?

This image of Skyrim modding made my day

I don't feel it's inherently necessary to explain why this image is worth sharing -- does it not speak for itself? -- and I've already paid my debt with a serious story about the benefits of modding The Elder Scrolls V: Skyri...more

Here's a Skyrim fan film just because

Skyrim: Journey's End is a little fan movie starring the Dragonborn taking on a Necromancer and a couple of undead bandits. It's an impressive short, and it's made even more impressive due to the fact that the costumes and props were all made with just a $100 budget. [Thanks, Shannon!]more

Storm's Adventure with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Here I am again, the sweaty, fat kid running back up to Destructoid, saying, "No, wait, I got another." So I held this voting event a while ago on YouTube called "Tell Storm What To Play 2012", and this is the true end result. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is not new, and nothing I say will change anything. But this is what YouTube wanted. Blame them. Also, that helmet gets very hot.more
