The DTOID Show: Bethesda acknowledges Squidbear!


Happy Friday, everyone! I'll bet you never get sick of hearing that.

On the first half of today's live Destructoid Show, I summarized Chad's illustrious Uncharted 3 review and made a quick list of the best Halloween game sales this weekend, while Max gave the low-down on Mass Effect 3's new co-op mode. Topping it all off was some wild speculation on features we think the Wii U should consider adopting before its big reveal at next year's E3.

Later on, we show a clip from episode 13 of the official Bethesda podcast in which Skyrim's art director confirms* that the Squidbear will, in fact, be a creature in Skyrim. Sort of. It's complicated. Anyway, if you weren't sick of Skyrim yet, Max also has some Photoshopped concept art he's proud of.

We also announced a contest thanks to GameStop, where pre-ordering Modern Warfare 3 will get you a code that let's you enter a ton of different contests, such as a VIP trip to Comic-Con 2012, 100,000 MS Points, a skydiving trip, a 2012 Jeep Wrangler, a trip around the world, a Zero-G experience, $10,000 in cash to much more. All the details on the giveaways are over on GameStop.

GameStop has given us a 250GB Xbox 360 with a copy of Modern Warfare 3 to give out to one of you! Simply write a limerick about why you want to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and send your submission to [email protected]. We'll be picking a winner after the contest closes on November 7 at 11:59PM CDT. Contest is open to anyone with a US based address the prize can be shipped to. Good luck!

Before we head out for weekend festivities, a big congratulations to Joseph Gonzales for winning our War of the Worlds contest with his haunting sketch of Jonathan Holmes as a martian. Because I didn't need to sleep tonight or anything. Nah. It's cool.
