Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Get Married, Start a Bar Fight, Play after the Main Story in Skyrim

That trailer always gives me chills....

Bethesda's gotten a load of community questions and have decided that answering them before Skyrim's release was the best idea. They were wrong. They're driving us all crazy at the GameRevolution compound. If you're a gamer, Skyrim's gotta be on your radar. If it wasn't, some of these answers will cement it's place on there. Game Director Todd Howard, Lead Designer Bruce Nesmith, and Lead Artist Matt Carofano answered a handful of questions, confirming and revealing several tidbits that make the wait for November that much harder.

Howard neither confirmed nor denied whether or not the player will be able to transform into other creatures in Skyrim, stating that they'd "prefer to not discuss this one. We'd like to leave that an open question until the game is out." Nesmith replied to one community member that leveling will be handled as it was in Fallout 3 where certain areas yield higher level enemies and loot, rather than scaling as it was in Oblivion.

When asked whether players will be able to have relationships in-game, Nesmith replied:

Absolutely! You make friends with people by doing things for them. Friends in the game will treat you differently. Some of them will even agree to go with you into dungeons and on adventures. You can even get married. If you own a house, your spouse will move in with you.


Carofano revealed that "one of the most prized and rarest sets of armor is made from dragons," while Nesmith confirmed that magic weapons and armor will operate as they did in Oblivion, requiring soul gems to power their effects. When asked about non-lethal means of defeating opponents, Howard replied:

Depends on what you mean by "defeat". We have various stealthy ways of getting past people, and the various poisons and spells allow you to basically render enemies harmless to you, whether that is casting a calm or fear spell, knocking them down, or something else.

Oh, and we now have tavern brawls that are non-lethal! I love those.

Woah-woah-woah. Tavern brawls? shutupandtakemymoney.jpg, ri---

Will dragon shouts support all types of characters? Are there long ranged shouts? Some kind of stealthy "shout"?

Howard: Yes, the shouts support all character types.

You had me at "tavern brawl" guys, c'mon! I don't know how much more I can ta---

Will you be able to carry on after the main story?

Howard: Yes, absolutely.

NOOOOOO! WHY MUST YOU MAKE US WAIT?!?! The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be on store shelves November 11th, 2011.
