This sky's the limit
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most involving, engrossing and impressive games of the year, but unfortunate technical inconsistencies mean we can't guarantee whether your experience will be flawless or just plain flawed Skyrim's PS3 technical troubles are well documented, making this an extremely difficult game to...
House of the Dragon
Some games come and go, but rarely does one come along and have such a cultural impact that players are still talking about it a decade on. Originally released for the PlayStation 3 on 11th November, 2011, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is absolutely one of those games. A fact that’s being celebrated by Bethesda today with the...
Dragonborn for this
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is officially ten years old. How time flies, eh? The open world role-playing game first released for the PlayStation 3 on the 11th November, 2011 — and boy was it a mess. Skyrim ran extremely poorly on Sony's old console — even after it had received a boatload of updates — but its poor technical...
Arrow to the knee, lose a turn
Not content with publishing Skyrim on basically modern video game format, Bethesda wants to dominate your dining room table, too. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Adventure Game is a fully fledged tabletop RPG that brings the snowy region of Tamriel into the realm of board games. The game is being created by...
There was no plan bee
"Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? You walked right into that Imperial ambush; same as us and that thief over there." How many times are you willing to admit to hearing those introductory sentences of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? We're sure some of you are well into the double figures,...
The Dragonborn Legend
We’re listing the ten Games of the Decade. These are the ten PlayStation titles released over the past ten years that we believe have left a historic mark on the industry. Whether it’s Destiny's impact on the Games as a Service space or Journey’s innovative approach to online connectivity, these are the releases that the...
Lots of septims
There's plenty of cool video game merchandise out there: figurines, t-shirts, wallets... Oh, and life size busts of your favourite characters. Yep, Bethesda's online store now has 600 hand-painted, polystone Dragonborn statues for sale. They stand at 25 inches and cost $650 a pop. If you'd rather, though, you can pay for one in...
Knowledge is power
You may have picked up its books purely to see if they granted you a lovely skill increase, but a heck of a lot of effort must have been put into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's vast amount of in-game literature. From stories of adventure to The Lusty Argonian Maid, Bethesda's open world role-playing game was full to the brim with...
To be fair, it didn't boot half of the time
As much as it pains us to say it, the PlayStation 3 didn’t provide the best home for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In addition to late expansion packs and the usual roster of Bethesda bugs, the game was borderline broken on Sony’s popular platform. Things did improve over time, but not to a degree where...
We're now so far into Who Wins Wednesdays that we've had to start using numbers when it comes to typing out the tagline. We've had ten features leading up to today's duel, with the last battle ending up as a win for everyone's favourite alien, Garrus Vakarian. In an attempt to keep things feeling fresh, we're going to move away from gun...
Fus ro duh
We mentioned a couple of months ago that 2014 could well be the year of the re-release, and the slew of rumours surrounding various next-gen upgrades indicates that we may actually have a case. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the latest title to get tossed into the PlayStation 4 port pile, with publisher Bethesda’s very own website...
The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios.
Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel.
