The Bethesda Podcast Episode 6: Enter the Dragon


The dragon is out of the bag. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will hit stores in under 11 months, and we couldn’t wait until after the holidays before tearing into it with executive game director Todd Howard.

This brief, but boisterous episode of the Bethesda Podcast includes a discussion of Todd’s trip to the VGAs, his thoughts on keeping secrets, info on where to hear more about Skyrim in the coming weeks, and a bonus John Carmack story.

  1. Short but good. Love the TES medley at the end. IMO some of Jeremy Soule’s best work!

    Morrowind one is my favorite though, the best piece of videogame music so far. The new one though (if that is going to be the intro music) sounds like a contender to that title 🙂

  2. Can i get the Game informer magazine in the UK? because i know its a US based mag but really REALLY want to get it in Feb
    Plzzzz Help 🙂

  3. Sweet, looking forward to listening to this tomorrow at work. I could almost cheat myself and listen to it tonight, but then what would I distract myself with tomorrow?

  4. That was really cool! They said that the magazine was coming out next month, although it’s been said that it will be available in February. Can you correct this inconsistency?

    It was neat how they did it so that you didn’t see him until just as they announced him, hiding behind monks. Todd should definitely have put on a robe, though.

  5. Love the end of the Podcast with the Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim intro music playing : ) Oblivion’s music is my fav. but Skyrim fits the best in my opinion.

  6. One of the best things in the world is to hear Todd talk about Elder Scrolls. I just can’t wait to hear this when I get home from work.

    It’s no inconsistency, subscribers will get it next month and it will hit newsstands in February.

    My favorite part of the PodCast was when Todd thanked us fans (repeatedly) for keeping them motivated by talking about this since the day OB was released. We love you too Todd and I would like to thank you and all of Bethesda for so fully and openly embracing the modding community, especially Robin Scott and all that he has done. I’m looking forward to saying I told you so to all the haters that thought this day would never come. The next 11 months should prove to be very entertaining.

  8. Thank you so much! I look forward to many more Podcasts about Elder Scrolls and Skyrim. Please have one where you ask Todd to give his reflections about Morrowind and Oblivion too (we fans always love that).

  9. Oh God when they gave a “shout out” to the Speculation thread, I felt so embarrassed. Grasping at straws is never fun, but it gave us something to do. 🙂

  10. I think that now bethesda should make a only type rpg with the elder scrolls games. that would be one of the best selling game of all times.
