Beginning on our merch store, you can order our latest Skyrim gear — a black hoodie featuring Skyrim’s take on the Imperial logo. A raw-edge hoodie, the design is ideal for Skyrim-like climate or long nights of game playing.
We start with YouTube creator timtimfed’s impressive live-action, side-scrolling tribute to Dishonored. Love the Possession references :p
If Corvo played video games, it would be: 1) odd and 2) most definitely with this Dishonored-themed controller from Devin Smith. See more at EndofLineDesigns.com.

Back in February, we let you know how you could help vote music from our games into Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. Sounds like you guys took action, as music for The Elder Scrolls Franchise skyrocketed to #5 on this year’s list — one spot ahead of some guy named Beethoven!
“Jeremy Soule made his Hall of Fame debut in 2012 with his music from the Skyrim games, and this time he’s gone top ten. The centrepiece of his work on Skyrim is undoubtedly the monumental ‘Dragonborn’, which not features a 30-strong choir, but also features said choir singing in a specially conceived dragon language particular to the games themselves.”

To everyone that came, thanks for making this year’s PAX East so memorable.
Today we’re looking at the latest highlights for Dishonored, including the first coverage for the game’s upcoming add-on, The Knife of Dunwall.
First, let’s give a hand to Arkane Studios and all our Dishonored fans. Last night at GDC’s Game Developers Choice Awards, the game took home the first-ever Audience Award!
At PAX East and across Europe, gaming journalists got their first chance to play The Knife of Dunwall, which puts you in control of Daud — the legendary assassin responsible for the murder of Empress Jessamine. In a new video up at GameTrailers (and embedded above), you’ll get your first glimpse look at gameplay.
