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.
If the Grinch could turn over a new leaf in time for Christmas, maybe it’s not too late for General Deathshead and Boxman. Check out their holiday photos featured on our 2014 Holiday Card.

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.

In time for Halloween, The Evil Within’s lead concept artist, Ikumi Nakamura, provided this amazing (and timely) variation of The Keeper.
From everyone at Bethesda, we wish you a happy and safe Halloween weekend. While you’re haunting about, feel free to share your best Halloween creations and costumes using the hashtag #BethesdART or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes you just need a BBQ on Independence Day. Happy 4th!
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!
As tradition, we wanted to share this year’s Bethesda Holiday card. With 2014 already on the brain, this year’s card pays tribute to next year’s lineup.

We end this week with most of us devouring food and spending time with family. Stay warm and Happy Thanksgiving!
Bethesda Underground recently visited Tango Gameworks
, developers of next year’s survival-horror game, The Evil Within. To celebrate the holiday, we put together a short video from their studio.
