Backlogjammin’ – Another GD Podcast

Wes and Dave discuss a bunch of games they want to play but sometimes lack the time for. Dave does it sober, which makes him less interesting but more volume-controlled. Wes drinks a buttery chardonnay and has regrets.

Dave and Wes Discuss the State of Nintendo

It’s true.  We really do. Enjoy.

Dawnguard DLC trailer provides further reasons to live

Wise sages of Bethesda, who bestow upon us new footage of Dawnguard, we thank thee.  We praise you for your inclusion of a crossbow, which will provide thine assassin with great ability.  We sing your name in song for the addition of mounted combat and wings which allow our (im)mortal(?) bodies glide above thine earth. […]

Skyrim DLC, “Dawnguard”, Releasing This Summer

Bethesda announced Skyrim’s first DLC expansion today with Dawnguard.  More details are expected at E3, like perhaps any relation to the rumors of Snow Elf Princes and crossbows. Also, for those who love screaming at their TVs, the Kinect-features update for Skyrim is supposedly available today.  Honestly, I think I’d enjoy screaming shouts in the […]

…Wherein I finally beat Skyrim…

I decided to bite the bullet and just end it all. I eclipsed the 100 hour mark last night and, with that, defeated Alduin in Sovngarde, thus completing the main storyline of Skyrim. It was a harrowing adventure to be sure, and there is still much achievement mining to be had. But I will say […]

Bethesda artist heads to Sovngarde too young

Reddit’s main page features a link to Awesome Robo about the death of Adam Adamowicz, conceptual artist at Bethesda.  This is the gent responsible for a great deal of Skyrim and Fallout 3’s style–two games, I believe, that feature some of the most innovative atmosphere in gaming.  This is unpleasant news.

Gilded Cask 2011: Game of the Year

I finally feel like I am at a point where I can say I’ve adequately played through the majority of Skyrim and present a true idea as to its good points and bad.  As you can probably tell by the title of this post, there are far more of the good.  Skyrim represents true value […]

Podcast 2012

Welcome to the New Year! Enjoy an hour and a half of Wes and Dave discussing bullshit and their year in video games.

I’m Just a Citizen of Skyrim, but I’m So Much More

Certainly by now you’ve read a review of Skyrim, the latest Elder Scrolls iteration to grace our boring Earth (unlike the always-interesting Tamriel).  The last thing you need from me is to write yet another account of how great the game is; you know it’s great, even if you haven’t played it.  Instead I want […]

One month from tomorrow…

A month and one day is all that stands between the real world of Earth and the return to the fantasy world of Tamriel.  Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released 11/11/11, and in preparation, Bethesda has been good enough to provide a few screenshots.  Initial thoughts on each pic as follows: First, the map, […]

Queue Up the E3 Disappointment (Grumble Grumble)

There seems to be a lot of jubilation about this year’s E3 Conference amongst the gaming press.  You can count me unimpressed with the 2011 offering.  Having watched the three main press conferences (Microsoft, followed by Sony and then Nintendo) I am comfortable in saying that I am displeased with each company as this year’s […]

Skyrim Gameplay Video Creates Fury Because It Isn’t 11/11/11 Yet

The fine folks at G4 interviewed Bethesda’s Todd Howard about the awe-striking Skyrim, the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls series. As you can see from watching through this 14 minutes of gameplay, your life will become null and void come November 11, 2011.  I can’t describe how excited I am for this game…

With Skyrim Looming, I’ve Been Dragged Into Oblivion

I’m sure you’ve already seen the wondrous previews of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was previewed to the lucky bastards who have successful video game websites a few weeks ago.  As a huge fan of Oblivion, I eagerly await this juggernaut to claim all free-time come November 11.  It seems, though, that Tamriel’s grasp on […]
