The Skyrim Primer

A beginners guide to the realm of Skyrim.

Skyrim is shaping up to be one of the bigger blockbuster titles this holiday season.  For many it will be the first time they’ve delved into a series so rich with history.  Jumping in at this point can be a daunting task, but you don’t have to march into the breach without being prepared, as we’ve created the PixlBit Skyrim Primer – a beginner’s guide of sorts that should help to inform the neophyte Elder Scrolls player on what to expect.

The guide is separated into different pages that can be accessed as necessary via the table of contents on the right hand side of the article.  Feel free to skip around however you want.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim lands on shelves this Friday, November 11, 2011 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Excellent article. I pre-ordered Skyrim 2 weeks ago because of reviews and the subject. This is my first venture into Elder Scrolls and very beneficial for an introduction that is "assumed" knowledge by most gamers. I'm even more psyched about the release Friday!!!

Dragons are the main reason this game is hyped?

No, sorry but most probably don't even care about the dragons.

Dragons were definitely one of the most promoted things at E3, I'm not saying that's all there is, but I think they're probably the most featured new elements of the Elder Scrolls games.

Five Things Mass Effect Could Improve On

We are fast approaching November 7, which in recent years has been marked as “N7 Day” by EA and BioWare, and is usually a celebration of all thing Mass Effect. We’ve done things for N7 Day in the past, and I’m sure we will this year, as BioWare is set to finally show off the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda in a big way. Considering that the game is expected early next year it’s a little worrisome that we have seen so little of it by now. With that being the case, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my favorite game in the series: the first Mass Effect. That game had some serious issues, but instead of fixing those issues for Mass Effect 2, BioWare’s solution was to throw most of them right out the window. So let’s take a look at some of those problems with the original Mass Effect. I will identify the major issues, explain what BioWare’s solution was, and provide an alternative fix that I hope makes its way into Andromeda.
