The Elder Scrolls series is among our favorites, but it's definitely not perfect. Exhibit A: combat. It's sort of like beating up a cardboard box, only to come to the terrifying realization that you were the cardboard box all along. Fortunately, this new Skyrim trailer – still mint-in-box from Bethesda's Comic-Con showing – has us hopeful that Bethesda's finally taking fight lessons from something other than one of those bouncy inflatable toy clowns. Which sounds great, but means that going toe-to-oh-holy-lord-what-is-that with giant spiders will probably be more terrifying than an army of real clowns. Still though, you can knee wolves now. Right in the face. A fair trade-off, we'd say. And dragon fights. Oh man, dragon fights. Check out the full trailer after the break.
E3 started properly just yesterday, and the first game I saw was probably the one I’m most looking forward to: Skyrim. The presentation Bethesda is showing behind closed doors is similar to the seven-minute video they released yesterday, and to the one we wrote about in PC Gamer last month.
What we hadn’t seen in action before, though, was horsies. Riding horsies.
