    Skyrim PlayStation 3 DLC Finally Gets Release Dates

    Hell must have frozen over, pigs are surely flying, and dozens of other tired phrases have obviously come to pass. It's the only explanation for the PlayStation 3 downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim finally receiving release dates. Bethesda had promised that they'd come in February, but only a fool completely believes such claims. It's been months -- four months short of a year for Dawnguard -- since they released on Xbox 360, but PlayStation 3 users will finally get all three this month.

    Skyrim’s Dragonborn DLC Hits December 4th, Totally Lets You Ride Dragons

    Other than the trailer and name, not much is known about the next expansion for Bethesda Game Studios' The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Titled Dragonborn, and available December 4th on Xbox 360, the DLC's announcement seems to confirm pretty much every rumor out there: Solstheim is definitely the setting, and riding dragons has apparently made it in. Whether this is something that can be controlled on the regular or features during a scripted sequence only is currently unknown, but it sure looks excellent. Hit the jump for the trailer.

    Conan’s Mr. Buttons Strikes Fear Into The Heart of Skyrim‘s Fauna [Video]

    In the latest addition to his "Clueless Gamer" series of videos, Conan O'Brien plays and reviews The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Here we see him scream at the sight of a woman, reenact junior high school conversations, and give surprisingly good advice on how to kill mammoths. I have to admit, he's making really good points about the game, just more bewilderingly and with less gamer jargon.

    Bethesda’s Office Now Has a Real-Life Alduin’s Wall From Skyrim

    Bethesda has had Alduin's Wall from Skyrim just lying around after it was used for E3, PAX, and the Skyrim launch party. So, instead of letting that gigantic art wall go to waste, they shoved it into their place of work, where it is now a permanent fixture of how cool it must be to work at the place that makes The Elder Scrolls games. More pictures after the break.

    Why Oblivion Ruined Skyrim

    The Elder Scrolls series is, and has always been, one of the most immersive series in video games. When Morrowind first released, I'll admit, I was too young and my gaming palate to unrefined to enjoy it. About ten minutes in, I realized I could click just about everything and put it into my inventory. That was when I gave up. Years later, I gave Oblivion a shot; older, with my gaming palate more refined. I have never been as immersed in a virtual world as I have been in Oblivion's, and I played a MUD for fourteen years. Over 200 hours logged in Oblivion, with my character's skills trained high enough to where he could literally standing jump over a single story building, I never even completed the very first quest. My character still has that amulet in his inventory. So, I was obviously stoked for the next installment in the series, Skyrim. I got the game the day of release, eschewed my daily gym routine, and booked it home straight after work in order to spend the next hour making my character and ignoring the game's main quest line in order to get lost in the world. It's been months since the game's release now, and I only have a few hours logged into my save file. I really hate to admit it, but I just can't seem to bring myself to play Skyrim. Here's why.

    Official Skyrim Portal 2 Mod Might be Hiding a Portal 2 Quest

    Yesterday, Skyrim's official mod tools released to the masses, and along with a high resolution texture pack, came a somewhat out of left field Portal 2 mod, wherein the Space Core plummeted to Skyrim's fertile ground. Today, through console commands, YouTube user Memorable found a hint that either a Portal-related quest now resides in Skyrim so long as one has the Space Core mod, or a Portal-related quest is incoming in a future update. Video and explanation after the break.

    Official Skyrim Mod Tools Released, Along With Portal 2 Space Sphere Mod

    Only the second title to be featured on Steam Workshop, the creation area of Valve's community, Bethesda has finally brought us Skyrim's official modding tools, the Creation Kit. Along with giving players the ability to legitimately mod Skyrim, the kit comes with a high-resolution texture pack for the game, and oddly enough, teamed up with Valve to release a Portal 2 mod for Skyrim, the Space Sphere mod. That's right, everyone's favorite insane personality sphere can now follow players around the world of Skyrim. The creation kit is free, and around only 40 megabytes in size, so go grab it, and start modding your Dragonborn heart out, and visit the Creation Kit wiki for all your modding needs.

    Hand Crocheted Skyrim Dog Costumes Are a Fantastic Idea

    Halloween may be months away, but it's never too early to start dressing up your dogs. Take this handsome pair, for instance, dressed like a Dragonborn and a dragon from fantasy video game Skyrim. A hand crocheted labor of love, the outfit includes a helmet, sword, shield, and bracers. Also, that's a dachshund dressed as a dragon. What more could you possibly want? See more pictures of this pair, and their costumes, after the break.

    Every Book in Skyrim is Now Available in eReader Formats

    For how humongous and detailed the worlds in Elder Scrolls games tend to be, it is continually impressive that the huge, detailed worlds are filled with many long, detailed books. Elder Scrolls players tend to become obsessed with the books, collecting them and arranging them on the bookshelves in their in-game housing, to the point where users have madd mods for past iterations of the franchise installments that make the book-arranging an easier process. The problem, though, with the long, detailed in-game books are that they're long and detailed, and we have a world to explore and quests to complete. Now, however, capane.us has compiled all of the in-game Skyrim books and made them available for you to read on the go, in both Kindle and Nook formats.

    Explorer Travels to Morrowind, Oblivion in Skyrim

    While exploring the map, an intrepid Skyrim explorer came across the above archway in the bottom southeast of Skyrim. As with most games that have an edge of the map, this archway prevented access through the gate with the use of an old gaming stalwart, the invisible wall. The archway was in the direction of Morrowind, the third installment in the Elder Scrolls series, complete with visible terrain and foliage. So, the explorer did what any good gamer would do, and turned on no-clip mode and broke out of Skyrim, finding not only the landmass on which Morrowind takes place, but the Imperial City from Oblivion as well. There are two theories as to why this is in Skyrim.

    Someone Actually Did Name Their Baby Born On 11/11/11 “Dovahkiin” to Get Lifetime Supply of Bethesda Games

    Back in February, Bethesda announced that if someone had a baby on November 11, 2011, the release date for Skyrim, and named that baby "Dovahkiin," a name used in the game that translates to "Dragonborn," they'd get a prize. If this IRL quest was accepted and completed, instead of a few points to dispense between health, magicka, or stamina, Bethesda would provide free Bethesda games -- past, present and future titles -- for life. Well, a couple took Bethesda up on the offer and gave the world 8 pound, 1/2 ounce Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer.

    Skyrim Mod Gives the Map Google Earth Zoom

    Skyrim released only last week, and doesn't yet have official modding tools, but that won't stop the always impressive modding community -- you know, those people that make professionally-made games better. From Skyrim Nexus user Mikanoshi, the mod gives Skyrim's in-game map Google Earth zoom and Street View type functions. So, instead of staring at a largely static, zoomed-out map, one can gander at Bethesda's breathtaking landscapes from various zoomed views. Luckily, the mod doesn't even require an .exe, and can simply be implemented by changing a few lines of provided code in the Skyrim.ini, which can be seen after the break.

    Skyrim is Here, Along With Bethesda’s Enormous Ambitions

    As I write this, I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I’m not waiting because I have to -- it’s my day off -- and I’m not anxious because it’s a game with "Elder Scrolls" slapped on the front. I’m waiting because Amazon’s release date delivery can sometimes mean the product showing up around eight at night, and I’m anxious because I loved Fallout 3.
