E3 2017: Bethesda Predictions
Each year our editors sit down and make wild and crazy predictions about what we expect to at all of the press conferences at E3 2017. Although most of our predictions are just flat out wrong, every once in a while we nail them. So sit back, enjoy a nice libation, and join our editors as we discuss our predictions for each of the big conferences this year. Today we're on our third entry into the feature with Bethesda, who's conference is up second on Sunday, June 11th.
The Backlog: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
With Skyrim I decided to take a different approach. Instead of putting 10 hours in and then adding a few mods here and there, I figured I should just mod it straight out of the gate. Before I even booted the game for the first time, I had a handful of modifications downloaded and installed. But then things started to get out of control. 10 mods became 20. 20 became 40. Soon I had nearly 80 mods installed, changing everything from the density of the grass to the speed arrows fly to granting my dragon-souled warrior the ability to call for his last horse. But it wasn’t until I installed the amazing rendition of The Dragonborn Comes by Malukah as the menu music that things started to go sideways (she also does a killer version of Misty Mountains from The Hobbit).
The Backlog Returns: Wet
We all have a backlog of games that we mean to play. It's a stack that grows constantly and summer is usually when we try tackle it. Last year we took the slowness of summer to not only play those games in our backlogs but to also write about them. Well, summer is back and so is The Backlog.
Our First Skyrim Weekend Commences
After several weeks of preparation and waiting for this release, I finally got to venture through Skyrim this past weekend. I just have to say that this game can quite possibly win the game of the year prize. So with popcorn and snacks plus a 24 pack of soda by my side, I ventured into this world and never looked back. And so our story begins.... Oops, sorry, wrong series. Well, that was awkward. Anyway, here's a peek of some Skyrim.
