As I sit here having finally completed the main story arc of Fallout 4, I’ve come to realise one thing – that game is bloody huge. However, after over 70 hours of play, 40+ levels, and copious amounts of spent ammunition, there is still more to do. New locations are awaiting my arrival, NPCs are waiting my interaction, and quest chains are awaiting completion. Of course, having all the content in the world means absolutely nothing if it’s not entertaining, engaging or stable affair, but even after all this time I want to be wandering around the wastelands of Boston.
It’s a testament to the overall quality of the writing throughout the game more than anything, which is good considering Skyrim’s main arc suffered in that regard (eg. I can remember the Dark Brotherhood sub-plot, but the journey of the Dovahkiin? Nope.) The fact there are a number of paths to progress the main story, and how many of the side missions weave in and out of it, helps achieve this too. This of course it just one of the reasons Fallout 4 succeeds as an RPG, but is it the slice of perfection we were hoping it would be?
Well, it does its damn best to try and be.

What do you mean you don't own Skyrim yet? Don't worry, now you can buy the game on PC for under two quid.
Remember to use code BWG00E-QJP45O-INFGR1 to get it at this price. Great spot by Dr4gOns_FuRy at HUKD!
Another game price slashed as part of Xbox LIVE's sale today, you can now pick up Oblivion for the price of a pint.
As fantastically amazing as Horse Armour is, the real selling point for Oblivion is Cyrodiil -- the Imperial heart of Tamriel that forms the basis for this, the fourth Elder Scrolls title. The game is massive, filled with things to do, and I think between us, the Dealspwn team have easily sunk over 250 hours into this game. Plus, you know, Sean Bean.
All the Elder Scrolls game you can handle with all five entries in the series bundled in here, all of their respective DLC, and physical maps of all of the locations in which they take place. Perfect for those of you who don't want to go outdoors for the next 6 months. Thanks to WildCrumble @ HUKD!
Comes with all of the DLC along with the main game. Thanks to chrisvenn @ HUKD!
If you’re looking for something to fill up your summer then this sale from Gamefly will certainly do the trick. All of the recent Fallout titles and everything to do with The Elder Scrolls have been reduced, with savings to be found across the board regardless of whether you are picking up DLC to complete your collection or if you’re getting everything all at once. The saving can be made even better by using the voucher code GFDJUL20UK – this will knock a further 20% off the total, but do bear in mind that it will not affect standalone DLC purchases.
So, let’s get on with what’s on offer:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim | £9.99
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard DLC | £6.99
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Hearthfire DLC | £1.75
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragonborn | £6.99
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Legendary Edition | £19.99
A huge thanks to Fatality @ HUKD for the find!
PS3 owners rejoice! Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC has hit the PSN, and to apologise (we assume) for the delay, it's 50% off for the first week, so it'll set you back (£6.49 / €7.99 / AUS$11.75)
The release of the English language versions of Hearthfire and Dawnguard kick off on February 20th and 27th respectively, and you can find a full list of release dates and pricing over on Bethblog.com.
We've definitely seen lower prices in the past, but with the recent news of the impending release of the Dragonborn DLC on PC, it appears the price of the main game has risen slightly. As such, ShopTo’s current deal is the best around with a saving of almost £4.
With the latest patches fixing some of the bugs that stood out at launch, along the addition of some creative community-built mods, the big and beautiful land of Skyrim has something to do almost everywhere you go. One of the better games of 2011, this is certainly a good way to kill several (or a hundred) hours. Thanks to teatime @ HUKD!
Have you yet to try any of the Elder Scrolls games, and fancy diving in? Perhaps you hate having spare HDD space and want a convenient way of filling it up? Well this download deal from GAME is the right way to go about it, because the amount of content on offer for the price is staggering.
TES III: Morrowind along with its two expansions Bloodmoon and Tribunal, TES IV: Oblivion along with all its Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isle expansions, and TES V: Skyrim which comes bundled with the Dawnguard and Hearthfire DLC, are included in this collection. In short, it's a lot of open-world RPG for just £20. Thanks to Kais @ HUKD!
It is worth noting that you can get the Ultimate Edition, which includes all of the DLC, for a tenner more over at Amazon (which is the best price by a few pounds) but if you’re just after a no-frill return to the wasteland you need look no further than Gamersgate’s deal. There’s a saving of over £8 compared the next best offer, knocked down a little further by using the voucher code above
Even without the DLC, New Vegas is a huge game with an entertaining plot, and full of the charm that the Fallout series is well known for. For the price of a pint, it’s worth a look if you have held off this long. Thanks to deeplink @ HUKD!
Bethesda have announced that PC and PS3 fans will be getting Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC early in 2013, following its release on Xbox LIVE tomorrow.Click here to read more...
With one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for Bethesda’s RPG, Gamestop are asking for just a tenner for a downloadable version Skyim. Along with a saving of £4 over the next best deal, it’s a seriously good bargain. Please note that you will need Steam to redeem and play this one.
With the latest patches fixing some of the bugs that stood out at launch, along the addition of some creative community-built mods, the big and beautiful land of Skyrim has something to do almost everywhere you go.

As foretold earlier, Bethesda have dropped the reveal trailer for Skyrim's upcoming DLC pack - "Dragonborn". The trailer features some more chanting Nords as well as a host of new enemy types, some tourist shots of Solstheim, dragons with their bones picked cleaner than a KFC bargain bucket on a Friday night, and...wait...is he...is he riding the dragon?
Why yes, yes I do believe he is.Watch it after the jump >>>
Will we finally get to ride a dragon in Skyrim? Well, we're still not really sure. But some recently uncovered clues suggest that it might be a possibility.

Although there's a good chance that this will see a reduction on the digital marketplaces in the coming months, this is a good deal for those that want to jump into the wasteland right now. ShopTo's current deal for the PC version is the best around by over £2.
Along with the main game, the GOTY Edition comes bundled with all of the DLC expansions, expanding Bethesda’s already huge experience even further. It’s a deal that’s recommended for those that didn’t play it at launch, or for those that did but missed out on the DLC. Thanks to carpenterracing1 @ HUKD!
Not one to be left out, Amazon have decided to price-match GAME’s recent reduction on the latest instalment of The Elder Scrolls series. While it’s not a huge jump down from the last deal we highlighted, this is actually the lowest price the PC version has fallen to, with a saving of just under £2 currently available.

Also, it comes with a map that you can stick on your wall, which we at Dealspwn have classified as “lovely.” Thanks to eventhorizonx @ HUKD!
Ever dreamt of shouting "Fus Ro Dah!" at your television and catapulting a Nord off a cliff with the power of your voice? Well it looks like you'll get to do just that now that Skyrim on Xbox 360 is to be patched with "more than 200 voice commands".Click here to read more...
