The HotSpot - 11/2/11 - And there are dragons, obviously

Bethesda Softworks' Todd Howard educates the HotSpot crew on what his studio did differently with Elder Scrolls: Skyrim; also, how many prostitutes did you count in the first GTAV trailer?

Todd Howard swings by the…wait, you don't know who Todd Howard is? Oh. How about: The guy who you have to thank for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (not to mention Fallout 3) talks to The HotSpot about his latest project, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Tom Mc Shea, Kurtis Seid, and Tom Magrino were there and were totally entertained. We also parse the first Grand Theft Auto V trailer and bemoan the state of Nintendo's financial affairs. And hey, want to win a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Tune in to find out how!

Editor's note: This blurb is an SEO fiend's wet dream. Did you see how many times I name-checked Kurtis Seid??

Great podcast guys, one of my favorites so far! Can't wait for Skyrim and loved the interview with Tod Howard. And it was very refreshing to hear your opinions on GTA4. I too was bored after a few hours of that game, and I absolutely loved all the previous GTA games. Looking forward to Saints Row the 3rd much more now as a result. Keep up the great work.

It's really a shame that games come out usually at fridays at Europe. It really sucks when you pre-order a game and there's a chance that it doesn't come at the release day, especially when you order the game from different country(like me, they're only 43€, around $59, at Åland islands.) and if there's a delay or something, and then you have to wait it till monday. games should come out at tuesdays like in America, and they'd come at wednesday if there's a little delay

Thanks Tom. I tend to just listen to the audio while working anyway. Just like to check in on the video here and there.

@thebogle The video is currently serving as the bane of my existence. I didn't even realize this many things could break on a thing. Was hoping to have it done within an hour, but then something new and wonderful busted, so ETA is now an unspecified "later."

Is it just me or is the video missing? All I see is the audio.

Podcasts = crap. Podcasts + GameSpot = Good Podcast + GameSpot + Todd = Who needs God, I'm in heaven!
