I love to see Wind Waker link drawn in such a badass style. He just looks so cool in this movie-like poster. You also gotta love the name “Skyrule” lol, so awesome. Obviously it combines the words “Skyrim” and “Hyrule”. :D Very clever for whoever made this!
Here is a trailer for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.
This will come as great news for PS3 owners following previous comments Bethesda has made that they had completely given up on attempting to port the expansions to the PS3, due to the complexity of the system and programming games for it that have been released on Xbox 360/PC.
Due to the complexity of the cell chip, it becomes difficult to port games from Xbox 360 to PS3, the architecture is completely different. And the Xbox 360, due to the ease of development and higher sales, has been the main development platform for multiplatform title for years now. According to Bethesda, they failed at getting the PS3 DLC for Skyrim to run smoothly, and decided to give up on the endeavor.
However it now seems that they have indeed put the effort into it, and reversed course. Could this be due to the PS3 outselling Xbox 360 worldwide for the first time late last year?
Either way, it may be too-little-too-late for a lot of gamers, who may have decided to pick up the Steam, PC or Xbox 360 versions of Skyrim, where they could buy all the Downloadable Content. But for those who only have the PS3 version, they certainly will be glad to hear this news.
Additionally, all Skyrim expansions will sell for 50% off during their launch week on the PlayStation Network as a thank-you to Bethesda fans who have had to wait for so long on their preferred platform.
Bethesda will also update Skyrim’s PS3 version to 1.8 following the release of Dragonborn on PC on February 5th. Specific dates for DLC on PS3 were not divulged.

Skyrim, Morrowind, and Oblivion MMORPG? Elder Scrolls Online Announced by Bethesda. Release Date is 2013. Debut Trailer
Elder Scrolls Online will not launch until next year, 2013, for unspecified platforms, but the game has been confirmed and you can watch the debut trailer below.
Few details are known about the game, although much more will be learned once the newest issue of Game Informer magazine hits, which got the exclusive scoop on The Elder Scrolls online. This is the first Massively Multiplayer Online game in the long-running American/Western RPG series, and the first to be set in an online world where thousands of players can explore the deep mythos of the Elder Scrolls world together simultaneously!
It has long been rumored that the Elder Scrolls games would make a great MMO, and that the mythos was rich to provide the backdrop for one. And many people rumored that an Elder Scrolls MMO may have been in the works even after the success of Morrowind. And that anticipation only grew with the exponentially more successful Oblivion and Skyrim titles. Now, finally, it will actually be a reality! Which I think comes as a big surprise to many. It’s one thing to speculate, its quite another to know that the real deal is coming!
Gamplay details on The Elder Scrolls Online are scarce, but we know that the game is set in the ENTIRE world of Tamriel, that includes the lands covered in the Morrowind, Oblivion AND Skyrim games… the lands of Cyrodiil, Morrowind and Skyrim respectively. No word if any of the lands explored in the first two games will make an appearance, but you can probably bet on it.
The Elder Scrolls Online has a plot that is set 1,000 years before the events of Skyrim, set in a world on the brink of destruction by demonic forces attempting to assimilate the world into their kind, all at the hand of the Daedric Prince known as Molag Bal.
Three playable factions will be featured in the game, although we don’t know what they are yet or if there will be more. There is a rumor circulating that these will include a unspecified “Bird of Prey” race, a lion race and a dragon race. This by the same reporter of the rumor that The Elder Scrolls Online existed and would soon be announced (which has now been confirmed to have been true), so take that as you will. We’ll find out soon.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be the debut title from a new developer founded five years ago by Matt Firor, the co-founder of Mythic Entertainment (Dark Age of Camelot), he is head Game Director on The Elder Scrolls Online with his “Zenimax Online Studios”. Given how important this license is to Zenimax (the owners of Bethesda), you can be SURE AS HELL that they will do everything in their power to ensure The Elder Scrolls Online lives up to the Elder Scrolls name.
Here is the debut trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online.
It’s interesting that the Elder Scrolls Online MMO got off the ground before a Fallout MMO ever materialized. Many people thought that a Fallout MMO was inevitable, in particular because Interplay was once working on one (before Bethesda won the rights following a long, expensive and bruising court battle) and once Bethesda got ahold of the license, many fans thought a Fallout MMO would be next-in-line for the studio…. Looks like The Elder Scrolls will get the first crack at the online space however. And Zenimax will sure as hell have their hands full with such an epic transition to the world of online! I’m sure that the skyrocketing sales of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is what convinced Bethesda, once and for all, that it was The Elder Scrolls that needed to go online with an MMO, and NOT the Fallout license. Although Bethesda’s Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas sold extremely well, they can not TOUCH the insane sales of Skyrim, a game that sold an astounding $3.4 million copies in TWO DAYS across Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Think about that for a minute. And that’s at $60 for a regular copy, or a whopping $150 for the Skyrim Collector’s Edition…. :O *the mind wobbles*
Of course, it’s also likely that The Elder Scrolls Online was in development even BEFORE Skyrim… who knows, especially considering that fans have speculated about The Elder Scrolls MMO for a long time now, and considering Zenimax Online Studios was founded way back in 2007. It’s highly plausible that the game has been in development for years, and we are just now hearing about.
The Electronic Entertainment Exposition 2012, E3 2012, the world’s biggest videogame tradeshow (held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California), is only ONE MONTH away, taking place from June 5–7. So we are sure to hear new, solid details and see actual gameplay footage of The Elder Scrolls Online in the near future. The game will also likely get its platforms revealed soon (maybe in that Game Informer issue) and we are likely to learn the first details of the next Xbox, next PlayStation, and new games for Wii U at E3 2012, so we may get confirmation on what next-gen platforms, if any, Zenimax has in mind for The Elder Scrolls Online. Will it be PC only? Stay tuned and get hyped!
Skyrim Dawnguard DLC Announced. Downloadable Content Hits Xbox 360 First This June 2012 (Xbox 360, PC, PS3).
Much to the dismay of non-Xbox 360 owners, the DLC will have a timed-exclusive deal meaning that Xbox 360 owners will get to play the DLC before anyone else. However it will only be exclusive for 30 days before hitting the PS3 and PC platforms.
Details like pricing and what exactly will be included in the first downloadable content will be revealed at E3 2012 in June, although it has been suggested and rumored that this first DLC will give players Crossbows and Snow Elves.
Peep the first artwork from the new content above.
Here’s the launch trailer for Skyrim.
Skyrim For Real – Live Action Music Video Is Breathtaking! One Voice, One Violin – Lindsey Stirling, Peter Hollens
Both of the cast of characters in this video; the incredibly sweet, cute-as-a-button, violin-master Lindsey Stirling and the man’s man, loincloth-bearing, voice-of-a-giant, Dragon-speaking bastard that is Peter Hollens (envious of this guy… :P) put on a show of absolutely epic proportions, with music that is of angels; and have given the world an incredible remastering of the Skyrim themesong composed by Jeremy Soule, from the epic RPG videogame that has engulfed anyone who has touched it (available for PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 from Bethesda Game Studios).
Unbelievably, the bear-of-a-man explorer named Peter used over 120 overlayings of his vocal tracks to create the incredible voices you hear throughout this piece, and of course the incredible violin playing of Lindsey (who’s drop-dead sexy performance on a violin will make all men rush out and exclusively date violin players) will bring you to your knees in spellbound amazement. Topping off this cake of the Heaven’s is cinematography that would make The Lord of the Ring’s film director Peter Jackson stand up and cheer.
Add in first-person videogame viewpoints, INCREDIBLE special effects of Lindsey and Peter shooting spells at each other ripped right out of a videogame, and a Violin bowstring vs sword battle between Peter and Lindsey, and you can easily see why this amazing video has over two million and a half views!
Even after seeing it multiple times, it still gives me chills. Absolutely completely utterly BEAUTIFUL. Do yourself a favor and give this masterpiece video a watch!
