I saw this demo at E3, and it was one of the games I wanted to write a preview for, but never found the time.

A lot of the things that were shown and discussed looked and sounded great, but a lot of things were also hinted at and suggested that made me wonder if the game will play as well or as seamless as said in the demo.

Also, I'll be a little bit mean and say that I was't very impressed by the fights with dragons. It could be because of the level of strength of the NPC used, I can't recall how "powerful" he was in relation to the enemy, but the fight(s) were pretty quick and simple.

I won't be buying Skyrim, because it's just not a genre I enjoy, but I will admit the game seemed to have a lot of potential. Whether or not it will live up to that, I suppose we'll have to wait to find out.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 154: Imagine Dinosaurs

Welcome to one of the beefiest episodes of Nerds Without Pants this year, and there were only two of us on this episode! Must be all the E3 hype. Or maybe it was your AWESOME questions for our second AMA edition of Stage Select. It might have even been a hellacious Video Game Cage Match! Regardless of the reasoning, please enjoy this super-sized edition of NWP!
