legendary

The big update for "Skyrim" has already hit the PC scene, but starting today console adventurers will get a chance to forget about their loved ones all over again with a new leveling system and a Legendary difficulty mode. The update fixes several common and rare bugs that more often than not plague these huge open world games but arguably the biggest "fix" is the Oghma Infinium glitch. If you're still a greenhorn in the land of Skyrim, you'll have to level up the legit way instead of reading the mythical grimoire over and over.

Other patches smooth out some of the annoying quest item bugs that weigh you down with various "undroppable" flutes, drums, and crystals. The full patch release after the jump.

Todd Howard gave the opening keynote at the DICE 2012 summit in Las Vegas entitled "Why We Create, Why We Play," which proved to be a highly entertaining speech with an equally hilarious PowerPoint presentation. Todd has been with Bethesda for 18 years, starting in 1984. When he joined the company, Terminator Rampage had just come out. E3 didn't even exist yet, and according to Howard, "We had CES, but the video games were in a big tent outside with the porn." Look how far we've come since then.

To put things in perspective, he noted that Doom came out right around the same time he was joining Bethesda. Terminator: Future Shock first game he worked on, which was promptly one-upped by id. "I've worked on a few games since then, and we bought id a few years ago. So..."

Check out Howard's full keynote below, which features things like a gorilla high-fiving a shark.

Just tell the kids you were too busy saving the world from dragons to get them gifts this year. They’ll understand.
