Before hopping on a plane to Los Angeles for E3 2014, here’s some videos and articles we thought you’d enjoy this weekend.
While in Munich to receive the LARA of Honor award, Todd Howard chatted with GameStar on a number of topics: career highlights, gaming philosophies, favorite German cuisine, and much more are all covered in the video above.
“Turn the pain into something positive. Use the darkness to make good art.” — Those words mean a great deal to Wolfenstein narrative designer Tommy Tordsson Björk. Find out why in a heartfelt column this week on The Huffington Post.
Next… err current-gen gaming is all the rage these days, but IGN recently took time to share their 100 favorite games from the previous generation. Bethesda published games make quite a splash in the list — with five games making the list: Dishonored (#67), Oblivion (#40), Fallout: New Vegas (#26), Fallout 3 (#5), and Skyrim (#4).
The Skyrim Mash-up for Minecraft on Xbox 360 recently won the “Coming Back for Seconds” award from the Xbox community. Thanks to everyone for voting.

Finally, a little love for Dishonored. Below you can watch a jaw-dropping play-through of the Lord Regent assassination mission — courtesy of StealthGamerBR. The video is an awesome reminder that you can always find new and creative ways to play through the game.
Have an awesome weekend!

We’re nearing summer which means we’re going to be seeing more and move coverage of conventions and expos! We saw great cosplay at PAX East, and with San Diego Comic Con, Dragon Con, and PAX Prime only a few months away, we expect to see even more. If you need some inspiration or that last push to dress in your finest Dwarven Armor, or put the finishing touches on your Boxman
mask box you’ve been working on… we’ve got you covered here! We have some of what’s been seen at PAX East, WonderCon, and other cons and expos so far this year!
Dressed to impress? Send them over to us on Facebook, Twitter #BethesdARt or email them to us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The parallels between the world of Tamriel and Westeros has not gone unnoticed. Brady Wold’s viral ‘Thrones’
is a perfect combination of the opening theme
of “Game of Thrones” with the familiar cities of Skyrim.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day week, there’s a 2K/Bethesda love-fest with today’s release two new bundles — Dishonored/Borderlands 2 & Skyrim/Bioshock Infinite. Both bundles for these award-winning games are available in North America on both Xbox 360 & PS3 for $29.99. That’s right around the cost of a dozen chocolate-covered strawberries and sure to last much longer!
Be a sweetie and order the bundles below…
- Dishonored/Borderlands 2 – PS3 or 360
- Skyrim/Bioshock Infinite – PS3 or 360
It looks like Borderlands’ Claptrap has a crush on us. Intrigued by the idea of receiving dub step-based love songs and receiving an invite to his very exclusive birthday/pizza party, we accept his proposal to package Dishonored & Borderlands 2 together. And for good fun, let’s do a Skyrim & BioShock Infinite bundle, too!
Both bundles will be available in North America for $29.99 on Tuesday, February 11th on Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3.
