Ghost of Christmas Card Past

Big thanks to the retro game-collecting crew at n0w.co for sending a special Christmas gift — a mint 1996 Bethesda Christmas card highlighting the release of The Elder Scrolls Chapter 2: Daggerfall.

Nearly 20 years old, only a select few folks (including Todd) were around when these cards went out. Almost as scarce is finding people that recall the use of Bad Dog — the unofficially official mascot of Bethesda back then. Maybe I can talk to Pete about bringing him back. :)

See our cards from this millennium in the slideshow below.

Around the web – ‘Pass the Cyberdemon’ edition

Tomorrow we’ll be at home celebrating Thanksgiving, but before we get to glorious Detroit Lions football and turkey legs, let’s check out some highlights from around the web. Setting the table is a dinner-themed tribute to DOOM — Dovahbear’s hilarious Dinner with Mancubus — shown in the embed above.

Speaking of DOOM, every second of Zero Master’s record-breaking speedrun for DOOM II is must-watch internet. After watching, head to reddoorbluekey.com for more details on DOOM speedruns.

That’s all for now. Safe travels, everyone!

T’was the Night Before Christmas…

The stockings have been hung and the lights are all out at the office. The Panzerhund is curled up on his platform while the Brotherhood of Steel keeps an eye on the premises. The Dovahkiin gets into a snowball fight with Boxman thus becoming Snowvahkiin. Just a normal holiday break when the team is away.

We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday as we go from Christmas into New Years. Here’s some festive art from us and the community. Happy Holidays!
