2 Bethesda Games For £10 | Get Loaded | PC

Get Games are currently running a '2 for £10' sale on several Bethesda titles - though it's worth noting that many of these games often sell for less than £5 each in regular deals, making for a false saving here. As far as I can work out, buying Doom 3: BFG Edition and either Dishonored, Oblivion GOTY or Morrowind GOTY will save you a few quid.

Might be a good time to round out your collection, perhaps.

Morrowind GOTY Edition | £5.09 | Impulse | PC

Morrowind GOTY Edition | £5.09 | Impulse | PC
  • What: The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind GOTY Edition
  • Where: Impulse
  • Current Price: £5.09

Morrowind is one of my favourite games of all time, and for many, was their first foray into the Elder Scrolls series. It's an enormous undertaking set on a massive island, with player choice at the forefront of the experience. Where you go, who you are, what you do and how you do it is entirely in your hands, and in contrast to Oblivion and Skyrim, the world is radically different from most fantasy games. Expect weird fungal buildings, guilds set in hollowed-out crabs and tottering chitinous Silt Striders instead of horses. And no enemy levelling, yesss.

If you want the entire package, including the massive Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions, Impulse Driven (I mean Gamestop, sorry, old habits die hard) have a neat price that beats Steam's landmark May sale by £1.50.

Top Ten Tuesday | The Elder Scrolls Wishlist

We've been talking about The Elder Scrolls franchise a lot lately, what with The Elder Scrolls Online being revealed, Dawnguard being officially announced and Morrowind turning ten in the same week. We've bantered about the past, present and future of the series in our latest PWNcast, and that got us thinking about what we'd like to see from future TES titles.

Whether we see our wish list implemented by Dawnguard, The Elder Scrolls Online or the next numerical Elder Scrolls sequel is irrelevant. This is what we want from the franchise - in order of how badly we want it.

10: Better QA

Top Ten Tuesday | The Elder Scrolls Wishlist

Let's get this out of the way with early. Bethesda RPGs are almost immune to criticism about bugs and glitches, on merit of them being sensational, but goodwill will only get you so far. Skyrim nearly faltered as PS3 fans were subjected to horrific frame rates, and subsequent patches on all platforms frequently made things worse rather than better. With such a huge game, there will always be bugs - but our patience is finite. With luck, a new engine (sorry, Creation, but I think we still need a brand new one) will help to sort out TES VI.

9: Decisions, Decisions

Top Ten Tuesday | The Elder Scrolls Wishlist

The Elder Scrolls franchise - and Fallout 3, not to ignore Bethesda's other RPG - offer us more choice on a gameplay level than we sometimes know what to do with, and that's absolutely wonderful. Indeed, it's why most of us became fans in the first place. But The Elder Scrolls isn't good at allowing us to make the big decisions, most of which we're railroaded into by the storyline or faction-specific quests.

  • What: The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind GOTY Edition
  • Where: Steam
  • Current Price: £6.49

Morrowind is one of my favourite games of all time, and for many, was their first foray into the Elder Scrolls series. It's an enormous undertaking set on a massive island, with player choice at the forefront of the experience. Where you go, who you are, what you do and how you do it is entirely in your hands, and in contrast to Oblivion and Skyrim, the art design is radically different from most fantasy games. Expect weird fungal buildings, guilds set in hollowed-out crabs and tottering chitinous Silt Striders instead of horses. And no enemy levelling, yesss.

Look, it's really great. And since Steam are offering the GOTY Edition for £6.49, you'll also get two massive expansions for your money.

Well one of them has a ring on, which halves my chances of a positive response to my immediate proposal. Hmmm...
