Apologies for the atrocious pun, but we've got some decent Skyrim deals floating about today.
It's a great price, but if you'd rather pay a little more for a the DLC.
Bethesda are holding their first E3 presentation this year. Might we see a new Elder Scrolls game or Skyrim PS4/Xbox One port? See also: what to expect from Bethesda's first ever E3 press conference.
It's actually amazing how some deals can make you both ecstatically happy and saddened somewhat at the same time, on one hand we have the beautiful feeling that for anybody yet to play this brilliant game (if I may refer to it as a game?) they can grab it for the silly price tag that Greenman Gaming currently have it for, yet I can't help feeling that it's an injustice that a game of this calibre has been widely made available at such a cheap price (you would pay this for Aliens: Colonial Marines, just to put it into perspective).
Anyway what will be will be so head on over to Greenman Gaming where you can get either the standard base game for only £2.00 or for £5.44 Greenman have also got the Legendary edition.

Here's yet another example of Bethesda's own sale being out-done by GMG and its voucher code WINTER-SALE20-GROGRE. It ends up beating GAME's recent deal as well, and for the price it's some seriously good value for money if you're after an RPG to dive into over Christmas.

Get Games have launched a flash sale on several Bethesda titles over on their store. Here are a few little highlights:
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition on PC is now just £6.89 - Click here to buy
In today's Advent Countdown sale from GAME we have The Legendary Edition of Skyrim, includes every single piece of DLC released for the game. There's a saving of around £3 compared to the next best deal elsewhere. There's a chance we might see this fall to a fiver in the Steam sale that is starting later today, but this is still a good price considering the amount of content here.

Skyrim is the best. It's the game that keeps on giving, especially on PC. One of the most accessible and rich RPGs ever made, it's also a modder's playground of the weird and wonderful. If you're not too fussed about the latest games, or are saving the pennies this Black Friday, consider stepping into Skyrim.
For less than two quid.
NB. You'll need to go via the VIP page to get the game at this price, which just means signing in as far as we can tell. There are some cracking other Green Thursday VIP games deals to be had ahead of Black Friday 2014, including The EVil Within for £9.40, Dishonored for £1.99, and Thief for £3.85. Click here to have a look at all of the Green Thursday VIP deals. Thanks F3RR3T!
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!
GAME have dropped their price for Skyrim: Legendary Edition on console down to £13.99 for today only. The PC crowd will be giggling with glee at the game having been half this price recently for them, but if you're a console gamer, this is a cracking deal that'll save you a couple of quid or so. Already a leviathan of a game, the Skyrim: Legendary Edition also bundles in the Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn DLC.
We'd recommend the X360 version over the PS3 for stability reasons.

It's Skyrim. With all of the DLC.
It's excellent, and you should buy it immediately if you haven't already.
It's also the PC version, so you can have the very best of times mucking about with some absolutely fantastic mods and marvelling at a game that somehow looks better than TESO...and plays immeasurably better too. If you're looking for a quintessential Elder Scrolls experience, accept no substitutes.

It's Skyrim. It's amazing. And on PC there are a whole host of mods to enable you to pretty much do anything you want, which are super easy top install and get up and running thanks to Steam Workshop. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!
This is even cheaper than the Steam sale price a few weeks ago for the Legendary Edition of Skyrim. This comes with all of the expansion pack DLC released for the huge fantasy RPG. The PC version is the least broken version when compared to the console releases too. We'd heartily recommend this over the new Elder Scrolls Online as there are months of exploring available and you don't have to pay a ridiculous monthly fee for the pleasure.

HD remasters and re-releases are big business, and in the wake of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition earlier this year, and the Final Fantasy X/X-2 re-release a few days ago, I've been thinking about some of the other games from the past fifteen years that would make for no-brainer re-releases on current, new-gen platforms like the Xbox One, the PS4, and the Wii U.
Sometimes, it's all too easy to attribute a re-release to a cashgrab, and the line shifts depending on who's drawn it, and how much the person in question values a game. Convenience is often one of the greatest reasons for picking up a game again on a new platform, particularly if it's a beloved title. But there are also certain practical improvements that we all look for when it comes to these revamps, from graphical improvements -- resolutions, textures, framerate, AA -- to additional content, smoother handling, new features, and making the most of the opportunities afforded by new tech.
In the case of the Xbox One and PS4, that means gameplay broadcasting and sharing services. On the Wii U, that extends even further to the unique capabilities of the GamePad and a greater focus on online multiplayer.
With that in mind, here are a few of my own personal picks for games I'd love to see make the jump from previous generations to the current one.
Metroid Prime Trilogy
This is a no-brainer. Metroid Prime still, somehow, looks absolutely outstanding, and both the first game and Echoes received a bit of spit and polish for the Collection that released on the Wii. Not only is it the best and bravest move Nintendo have made with one of their precious properties, but the explortory nature of the gameplay would lend itself brilliantly to incorporating the Game Pad. Scanning alien planets, pinpointing enemy weaknesses, plus you could use the motion control to steer the Morphball, and if Nintendo fancied adding in a spot of extra gameplay, you could get a nice little Commander-esque mode going on with the Game Pad in competitive multiplayer.Click here to read more...
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!
We'll be honest, this week's podcast goes a little off of the rails. What we originally envisaged as a discussion centred around artificial intelligence programming in terms of companion characters in games became a hearty chinwag about some of our favourite companions.
We even manage to make a case for Slippy Toad being the Best Video Game Companion Ever!

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 rather thought it might be the case that the European release dates for Skyrim's PS3 DLC would clock in a day after the North American drop dates in each cases, and that's what's been confirmed by Bethesda's Pete Hines.
The Bethesda UK VP stated on Twitter that Dragonborn would hit PS3 on February 13th, Hearthfire on February 20th and Dawnguard on February 27th.
After months of wrangling with technical issues, Bethesda has finally given PS3 owners a release date for Skyrim's DLC packs.
Erm, American PS3 owners, at least.Click here to read more...
