The HotSpot - 11/02/11 - 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?
@19playstation95 thank's for the info , i'm from libya and my english isn't that good . ******** i'm not hating or anything , i'm just saying a game like skyrim would only be fun on a PC , and that we the pc gamers took the fault of the limitation of the consoles . there are games wich are specific for consoles and consoles only like Uncharted for example , or little big planet they will never be as good on a pc . and there are games wich are specific for PC only like skyrim , and making them on other platforms will only limit the experience for the PC gamers , Due to the limitation of the other platforms the developers will make the game more simple , and will not get the freedom they need to make the best game they can make .
@ahmedghoula you spell quest with an e not an i and consoles are definitely awesome so don't hate on them.

@kidnatural sorry i'm kinda new i don't know how to reply correctly , i hope you can get this one **** No no i don't mind the next game (TES 6) being on the next generation of consoles but this generation is limiting the game alot . i mean imagin the freedom the developers would have if skyrim was on pc only imagin this game 35 or 40 gigs of content , 60 hours of an epic main quist , 100 hours of the guilds quist , 150 or 200 hours of side quist , hundreds of weapons of all kind , armors , dungeons .... i mean i will pay 1000 dollar to get that game . but that won't happen becouse the consoles are limiting any game alot , and by the way Elder Scrolls isn't fun on consoles .
@M-Conglomerate it's a video feed of a recording room, It's not a video feature... just listen, plus you know it would just be random clips from videos we've all seen a million times. People always need to complain about something. I liked what these guys are saying, I'm stoked.
You're a video podcast that doesn't utilize it's format! Instead you have three guys in a booth and you cut to a still. Un-believable. Where's game footage? Or a trailer? And lead guy; learn how to conduct an interview. Structure your questions to lead off your guests answers while at the same time leading him to divulge new info. You ask about bugs in the game? You rag on DA2 expecting Howard to publicly bag it? This is without a doubt one of the worst video podcasts/shows i've seen. I love Skyrim but your format & show was so boring i fell asleep. To quote Calculon "That was so bad i think you gave me cancer"
@ahmedghoula [quote]F*ck the console , this game should be a PC exclusive.[/quote] I'm getting it on PC, but this statement is absurd. Are you purposely trying to sound extremely selfish?
"Would you ever consider doing something like you did with new Vegas? Giving this franchise over to your Obsidians or whoever out there to bring out more Elder Scrolls?" - If certainly hope not. If anyone else got their hands on The Elder Scrolls series it'd be an abortion of a project.

Waited a week plus an extra day to get a broken podcast that clocked in at only 21 minutes... You're making me throw you under the bus here Magrino.
Games should always come out on Fridays that way we can enjoy them over the weekend...which in the US is a long weekend for some of us. Yay for Veteran's day.
"Let me talk about all the bugs that were in your game. What's up with that, dude? Why did you game have bugs in it?" what a douche
Koolbeans, Kevin VanOrd got the nod to do the review. I bet you the video review is done already. :) Will there be a Gamespot 10 score this year? Uncharted 3 = 9.0 Dark Souls = 9.5 BF3 = 8.5 Batman AC = 9.0 Gears of War 3 = 9.5 Skyrim = ?
Really good interview, yeah, the guy asking questions was a bit strange sometimes but the answers by Todd were very good. I liked it also that he didnt comment on dragon age. That was respectful of him. But yeah, the most surprising event in the interview was its ending... i mean... wheres the rest??? My personal opinion is that Skyrim is the game of the decade... cant wait to play it through and after that, start modding, adding something cool that adds to the game. I always wanted to do a spirit realm, you know, the character gets an item or ability to do see ghosts. There are so many possibilities on that, can even use skyrim quests as a starting points... for example, somebody has been killed in skyrim original quest ond you can use that persons model and make a ghost out of him. Asking your help to tie up some loose ends... im just thinking here. I personally think that it could be awesome! Back to skyrim, I hope the game arrives to ESTONIA fast :) lol...
Although I don't agree with everything the host mentioned but he brought up a good point. Oblivion is awesome in my opinion but Oblivion lacked the environmental specific places to certain races. It is one thing to add a race into a game world, it is another to make the environment specific to them (Cities). Oblivion tried to do this but it was in terms of structures not colors or textures. I hope Todd H. brings that out in this game. Since Morrowind I have been waiting for a elder scrolls game that brings out the dungeon adventure and I think this will be it :)
The host of this show is a douche, putting Todd in a position like that. Elder Scrolls>Dragon Age. Dragon Age needs to offer more freedom than just dialogue, they have both been groundbreaking in their own right.
nonononono.. assassins creed is going nuts.. The game turns into un anleashed madnes! i miss the old AC atmoshpere where you play by the rules.
They're not likely on windows 98, they've just disabled visual themes in windows to get the best possible recording setup. Extra visuals really just use more resources and aren't needed when doing serious recording like this.
todd howard is always very wise where he treads in interviews (especially near Bioware). Not being mouthy goes a long way. And i like that i feel like he's actually giving thoughtful true answers to questions rather than soundbytes (for the most part). anyway, good feed.
he shouldn't asked him about dragon age , any ways . i like the guy cuz he really lessons to the fans , he did what we asked for , and more . but the next game got to have more than 30 or 40 gigs of content and F*ck the console , this game should be a PC exclusive.
It's a full lenght show just the vid is this short for some reason... Here is the podcast: http://soundcloud.com/gamespot/the-hotspot-11-02-11-and-there#play
