The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Game Trailers' Interview and Gameplay Walkthrough

Some other E3 news I missed: Game Trailers has an interview with Craig Lafferty, the Lead Producer on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which discusses the game mechanics and shows off several clips of gameplay footage. You can check that out here or below.

While I'm very excited for the game, I must confess I'm not as impressed with the visuals as I was with Fallout 3 or previous titles developed by Bethesda Game Studios. I suppose that's because the game is being developed for 5.5 year old hardware and the Xbox 360 is really starting to show its age, but I fully expect the gameplay to be exceptional and that's what really counts, which leads me to the next video.

You can check out a full gameplay demonstration of the Xbox 360 version of the game narrated by Todd Howard here or below.

Oh, it's digital crack all over again!

Damn you, digital crack!

Graphics still look decent, and are an improvement over Fallout 3, but still show that character animations in particular are NOT Bethesda's strong suit.

@Telly While I agree they look better than Fallout 3 and the game's looking good, it's not amazing or visually wowing me. It's no Mortal Kombat, in other words.

That's not to say it's ugly, far from it, it's just a bit sad that the current generation really is showing its age now.
