Catch new Skyrim footage on GTTV tomorrow night!

Elder Scrolls fans won’t want to miss tomorrow night’s episode of GameTrailers TV. Following host Geoff Keighley’s recent visit to Bethesda Game Studios, you’ll be treated to all-new interviews and gameplay footage!

Stay up late tomorrow night to watch the episode at 1 am ET/12 am CT. While you wait, take a look at the latest online coverage from our recent press tour..

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Alec Meer covers crafting and answers questions for colleague Jim Rossignol.

G4TV – “The session ended with a vicious showdown with an Ice Wraith that was protecting something called a Serpent Stone. Activating the stone gave me the ability to paralyze enemies for five seconds. It didn’t help bring down the Ice Wraith (my dual-wielded fire spell sure did though), but I’m sure it would have come in handy had I been given another three, or preferably 300, hours to put it to good use. Thankfully, in less than a month, that’s precisely what I’ll be able to do, and I can’t horking wait.”

PC Gamer – “I can’t shake the obsession Skyrim has left me with. I’m pulling screenshots up on my monitor just to feel like I’m playing again. I’m scribbling character builds on napkins. I’m replaying only the snowiest bits of Oblivion. And I’m wondering what the hell November is doing way over there.”

GamePro – “Skyrim pushes all the right buttons in that regard–it’s a big, open, snowy world with fortresses, bandits and quaint little villages. If not for the mountains, it would be just like being home in Minnesota.”

Wizard World – “Bethesda has created a living, breathing, glorious world, and you’re going to want to spend a lot of time in there.”

id Engine Evolution

Just watched this GameTrailers.com video highlighting the evolution of id Software games through the years — from Commander Keen to RAGE. More than anything, the video reminded me of how blown away I was by Wolfenstein. Buried in storage somewhere, there’s a a Wolfenstein “movie” I made when I was 13 — combining gameplay footage and live-action nonsense in my backyard (from an FPS viewpoint, of course).

Watch the video above and feel free to share your favorite id memories in the comments section.
