Skyrim Release 11.11.11 - a detailed look

I was a big fan of Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Its this type of enormous free world game with limitless options that allows the game to be playable forever. With Skyrim coming in 4 days 11.11.2011

I thought I would just post a couple of videos that provide and detailed look at the game.

This will give you a detailed example of what we're dealing with in Skyrim.

The commentary here is pretty .......uh....German :) , but its an excellent example of the full beginning gameplay.

The increased versatility of this game has gotten me anxious to see what is in store.  Just the increased character creation abilities is enough to get me curious.

Microsoft have now announced that Xbox Live is going to have exclusivity for the first two pieces of DLC for Skyrim for the first 30 days. Then afterwards other platforms will gain access to the DLC. So if you're looking forward to DLC it would seem Xbox 360 is the platform to buy it on. Although if you don't mind waiting for the DLC you can pick it up on whichever platform you prefer.

Skyrim Story:

    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. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
