“The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” – video walkthrough

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - expect a mass outbreak of Man Flu in IT departments worldwide on November 11 2011...

Another one of the major players in the Autumn Games Apocalypse (TM) is tipping its hand – “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” is viewable in video walk-through form via Shacknews.com.

 

This is the demo that had grown men foaming at the mouth, during E3 in July, keenly anticipating the prospect of sinking hundreds of hours of their lives into the latest instalment in Bethesda’s Role Playing Game series.

As someone who dares not buy “Fallout 3”, “Fallout: New Vegas” or “The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion” for fear of becoming just such a refugee from real life, I’ll be skipping “Skyrim” but looking forward to seeing more videos like this….

New Video – Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Too near "Mass Effect 3"...too near "Mass Effect 3"...too near "Mass Effect 3"...

Big Huge Games and 38 Studios RPG, “Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning” is out in February 2012 and Joystiq has a 22 minute walk through video to share with us on this fine Friday.

Customisation is highlighted early on, the fantasy settings are as pleasingly classic you might expect (Hark! A woodland dell! ¬†And gloomy subterranean dungeons!) but the tweaks and idiosyncrasy (somebody’s been playing “Assassin’s Creed”) in some the game play aspects on display have me cautiously optimistic but resolutely ready to pounce on this game firing my +8 arrows of icy snark the minute that I see a crappy internet video.

Yep, still a nerd.
