    • They’re two entirely different games. People have different tastes and thus prefer different genres, i.e. you can’t compare the two.

  1. Congratulations Bethesda on the awards! The games all look fabulous and are on my must buy list already. ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE looks stunning like a modern day evolution of DAGGERFALL that has everything even sea monsters.

  2. I believe The Elder Scrolls Online is a great product, really amazing visual for an MMO. To the hell with comments about the “visuals” the game sometimes looks better than Skyrim.

  3. Kudos for Peter Hines… genius man! understands about “all audiences” like no one.

    And congrats for the Yogscast, today millions in subs is not necessarily be big. But rise a billion in views, fucking weirdos… good job.

  4. Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
