The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

E3 2011 Update: Maybe the giant screen Bethesda was using for the demo had something to do with it, but this was one of the few E3 demos that actually sent a shiver up my spine.

In a fight against a dragon, the player cast a storm spell that brought in a localized thunderstorm that blasted the dragon with lightning.

That was the "sold!" moment, even though some of the people were more



interested in how the player could affect the economy by burning down a sawmill or looking at 3D inventory objects. (Someone noted, with no sarcasm detected, "Smoked salmon in 3D? So rad.")

The broad scope and detail -- there are reportedly 300 in-game books to read and the 3rd person view received a decidedly major overhaul -- looks


incredible, as well it should. In only a few short months Skyrim will be landing on store shelves, dynamic time of day and weather effects included.

This one's mostly a visual preview of the upcoming The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which Bethesda Softworks has pegged for a November 11, 2011 launch. This is

another game that I'd like to block out of my consciousness until it ships. Too often anticipation creeps up and I feel my brain with information that more often than not blunts the impact of the game once I finally play it.


Here's just a little bit of what I know about Skyrim.


There are dragons. Max von Sydow lends his voice to the game.


Did I spoil anything for you? If not, check back after E3 when I've had a short look at the game when I'll definitely have more to say.
