Uh… that sounded weird. Maybe I should’ve said that based on this new gameplay footage-loaded trailer, Elder Scrolls V seems to have done a fine job with Skyrim. Ladies and gents, since I’m still taking Mass Effect and Dragon Age 101, I don’t have the slightest clue what to tell you about this trailer, other than:
? It’s pretty. ? It appears to have more dragons than Dragon Age. ? It’s probably a good thing that dude remembered he was dragonborn right when he got to the edge of the cliff. ? Seriously, this game is fucking prett, the wilderness environments especially. I’m kind of stunned by them.
Thanks to Stephanie F. and everyone else who sent in the tip.
