There’s going to be an Elder Scrolls MMORPG? Wait, let me rephrase that. There’s going to be an Elder Scrolls MMORPG, due out in 2013. The trailer above doesn’t really say anything about it, but word is it’ll be third person, there will be three factions, and more interestingly, it’ll be set a thousand years before Skyrim. I won’t be playing it at all, but I assume there are still enough of you guys screaming “Fus-ro-dah!” at your Xbox 360s to ensure this thing is a pretty decent success. (Via Gamma Squad)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
