Feeling C-R-A-B-B-Y? It’s time to turn that frown upside down with exciting news from GamingHeads have added a new plush figure to their Bethesda collection.

Legendary Smithing Skills

Nearly three years have passed since Skyrim’s November 2011 release date, and we’re still amazed by the unbelievable fan creations that come in from around the world. This week at the office, a number of devs took notice when Matt and Kerry Stagmer of Baltimore Knife & Sword re-created Skyrim’s iconic iron helmet.

See how it was done (and be sure to stick around for the strength test at the end) in the embed above.

Halloween Happenings

It just wouldn’t be a Halloween post if we didn’t have the annual sharing of office costumes. Take a look at the great outfits from our both Rockville HQ and id’s office in Dallas!

Have you gutted your orange globe yet and carved it up? We’ve been seeing some wonderful jack-o-lanterns this Halloween season ranging from Skyrim to Dishonored to The Evil Within. Send us your costumes, artwork and orange scary squash and we’ll add them to the post.

Happy Halloween… have a great weekend!
