Man what kind of question is that?: do you think there is still a place in the industry for 50 hours + games?...for 60 bucks that's what i expect from every game...what the hell? loll if more companies were like bethesda or rockstar they'd be less used games on the market....and game devs could stop complainig...go todd howard you rock!!!

Only complaint I have is that it was even brought up about the time scale. I will always feel the more time the better, except when it becomes excessive (Duke Nukem) to the point of disaster.

Im a big fan of TES and i have played Oblivion tooo much... you know what im saying :) lol, im so waiting for Skyrim to come out this week. I plan to play it too much also. :) Sidenote: I kind of hoped that Skyrim would add something i thought that should have been in oblivion. But i guess its a lot of extra work and time. We could fix it with mods :) That thing is... youth, children, elderly characters. In my opinion, more variety in age of npc's would add so much to the world of TES. It would make it 10 times more realistic. What you guys think?

What r the load times? How do they compare to oblivion etc... I know the game will be great. Lost count on the hours spent on Morrowind and Oblivion.

Hahaha 29 minute mark is hilarious!! You guys NEED to do a 12hr Skyrim Marathon, like you did with Oblivion, Greg Kasavin was great. Oh how we miss his intuitive reviews. Great podcast.

I notice that not once did he mention story as something he considers when designing a game. That doesn't surprise me--it's pretty evident that story is a low priority in these games. They're more about building a world sim than providing a likeable main character with a gripping story for people to role-play. You can see it in the game opening (well, you could until the leaked video was yanked), where you're a passive observer to the more interesting storylines going on involving people around you. Like Oblivion I expect this game to provide all the trappings of an RPG minus any actual interesting narrative to act out--I'm sure the "main story" will be some tacked-on series of fetch-it tasks assigned to the hollow husk of your personality-less avatar. Sigh.

In lieu of email, let me hear what you guys think about the Goldeneye "retry" just released on the HD consoles. They rewrote many of the iconic game/movie moments, ditched the likenesses and, understandably, the voices of the original cast and cut Boris from the story entirely. I loved the movie and really hate that there was no BluRay release to coincide with the HD game release, but this new game seems to have largely abandoned the movie, so it doesn't really belong with a Blu release of the film. Overall, I feel like they just copied the first level, then used the name to sell a game like 99% of movie games out there. But, this is like a movie game-game???

Must of have been awkward having the lead director of a game on the show and then saying that your going to have a "spoiler cast" while he's still on the line.

I spent dozens of hours in GTA IV free roam multiplayer with friends. I suspect I'll be doing the save in V.

@darth_sedus Honestly for a game like Skyrim, a score doesn't matter. Those who are going to buy it already know they will and a score isn't going to change that at all. It could get a 1 for all I care, I'm still going to pick up my pre-ordered copy and I'm going to love it.

As a Retired CMSGT. OF THE U.S.Air Force I have to say,SO WHAT! I've been to so many foreign countries & I've heard foul language come out of their mouths as well.Everybody at some point in time will use that to truly express what they're trying to say.What do you want them to do? Use lame words like "Freakin' " or "Dang"?If you didn't like it,sorry,get over it.You'll hear it again from another place again so just get used to it & ignore it.You'll live.

@TomMcShea I'm pretty sure there was a horde-esque mod for Fallout 3 that used ghouls.
