A New Podcast

Rush right over and check out the newest Bethesda Podcast: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Special.  It's packed with juicy tidbits of information about TES IV: Oblivion.

IGN Article

IGN has posted an interview with Todd Howard called The Elder Scrolls Evolved: What's New in Skyrim.  Take a look.

From Morrowind to Skyrim

OXM provides us with another great feature: a look at how Bethesda crafted Skyrim. 

Todd Howard wrote:
"With Oblivion, we're dealing with the capital province, and we wanted to get back to the more classic Arena and Daggerfall feel of a fantasy world that felt more refined and welcoming," Howard reflects. "A place that you instantly understood.

"But in that, we sacrificed some of what made Morrowind special; the wonder of discovery. With Skyrim, we're trying to bring some of that back and walk the line between Morrowind and Oblivion. Where it's at first familiar looking, but has its own unique culture and spin on it."

Wallpaper Image and Countdown Timer

Dragonborn Wallpaper

Bethesda has released a new wallpaper image, and there's a mysterious timer counting down to the first, in-game look at The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  The anticipation is almost too much to bear!

New Texts and Other Updates

Several new library updates have gotten overshadowed by the flurry of Skyrim information. 

First off, three texts by Michael Kirkbride have been added to the obscure texts section. There is the Dominion Prison Textract, a set of "Procedures for fighting the Tal(OS) Operating System." Up next is Shor son of Shor, an expanded version of the fragment released in World-Eating 101. Last, but most certainly not least, are the Five Hundred Mighty Companions or Thereabouts of Ysgramor the Returned. The forum threads for these three threads are still active at the official forums, and I encourage you to jump into the discussion. 

The translation dictionary has also been updated with the Draconic words released by Game Informer.
