The Daily Hotness: The Real Dovakhiin

Two parents named their kid “Dovakhiin”, after the main character in Skyrim. On the one hand, that’s kinda badass. I walked around my school with a Skyrim helmet for a week, so I know where they are coming from. Plus, I’m pretty sure the guy will just go by his middle name- Tom, in case you were wondering. Still, after reading that, I suddenly wanted a drink. Of the alcoholic variety.

In less odd news, we have some slick Zelda-based articles including a Dtoid Original listing the hardest Zelda dungeons ever, and a review of Jimmie Johnson’s Anything with an Engine and Cities XL 2012.
