Classic FM Hall of Fame is Back For 2015

Back for 2015, it’s the Classic FM Hall of Fame! As you may recall from previous years, a few familiar fan favorites have been decorating the chart. Jeremy Soule and Inon Zur need your votes to maintain their hold on the Hall of Fame. Shouldn’t every classical music fan get a chance to feel like the Dragonborn with Skyrim’s epic soundtrack? Or have the sense of wonder and terror that only Fallout 3’s Capital Wasteland can offer?

Cast your vote for Tamriel-favorite, Jeremy Soule and Wasteland darling, Inon Zur by traveling to Classic FM’s Hall of Fame, and following the directions located on the bottom of the page. Voting runs through the end of February — so don’t forget to show your support!

Modding Interview – Beyond Skyrim

We’re starting the new year with a all-new Skyrim modding interview. This time around we’re talking to Will Hillson, part of the Dark Creations team. A post-grad student in the UK, Will is an integral part of DC’s ambitious project known as “Beyond Skyrim”.

What’s the mod all about? Find out below…

Can you give a general overview of Beyond Skyrim and where the mod project currently stands?

Beyond Skyrim is a series of interlinking mods which will ultimately allow players to visit other areas of Tamriel within the Skyrim engine. Assets for each new region are being painstakingly created from scratch, including architecture, creatures, weapons, landscapes, textures and objects created by our artists and modelers. We pride ourselves on our fidelity to Elder Scrolls lore, and our ultimate aim is to create a player experience which will fit together seamlessly with Skyrim itself, allowing players to continue their existing character’s adventures in other lands, or perhaps even sidestep Skyrim’s story  entirely and experience what the rest of Tamriel has to offer.
