Update: Not getting any confirmation after applying for the beta? Be sure to check your spam folder! It has been reported to end up there quite a lot.
Great news! The beta sign-up for The Elder Scrolls Online started today!
Be among the first to set foot in the massive world of Elder Scrolls Online! The Beta will begin soon, so be quick about signing up!
Now, remember everyone; this is not meant to be for you to just play the game before launch - this is a beta, and as such, you should not be playing the game just to have fun - you should be TESTING the game, and reporting your findings to ZeniMax Online Studios. If this is not your intent, don't sign up.
But enough of that, to celebrate this, Bethesda Softworks released a Cinematic!
I must say, this was a very well done Cinematic, and I really enjoyed it. Hope you do as well!
In this video I give my impressions of the Frostfall mod. Spoiler alert: I think it is brilliant.

Happy news for both PC players and Playstation 3 players!
PC: You will be exploring Solstheim on February 5th!
Playstation: Sometime in February, you will get to explore Solstheim, followed by building yourself a home, and after that you will get to either kill or team up with some vampires! All this in February! And that is not all; update 1.8 will arrive just before Dragonborn. You think Bethesda is ending it with just giving you (in order of release) update 1.8, Dragonborn, Hearthfire and Dawnguard? Nope. During the launch week, all DLCs are 50% off on PSN!
Why are the alliances fighting, what are their motivations, and why have they banded together as they have? Well, the loremaster at ZeniMax Online Studios, Lawrence Schick answers some of these questions, and more in this developer video.
It is only five (5:31) minutes long, so do not expect a detailed explanation to each alliance. The video is primarily to get sort of a perspective of what each alliance stand for, and why they think they need to enter Cyrodiil and take the throne.
I ran out of time in my last video and had to cut out some great armor mods I had planned to cover. So here they are.

A well know gaming site called 'The Escapist' posted a review of 2012 and listed Skyrim Nexus as the community site of the year. Here is some of the quotes from the review:
"Modding is intimidating stuff. As a complete newbie to it this year, the Skyrim Nexus was an invaluable tool for me"
"the Skyrim Nexus shows gamers at their most creative, helpful, ingenious and generous. It's essential for anyone with even a remote interest in PC Skyrim."

The current top dog in the hot file section is the Race Menu mod. This mod is a great way to start your Skyrim adventure.

Yesterday CDProjektRED, developers of The Witcher series, released a teaser CGI trailer for their already announced project CyberPunk 2077. It's pretty cool, albeit gives us no insight in to the game play itself. But that's not what this news is about. Within the trailer CDProjektRED threw in some great little easter eggs and spoilers amongst all the static. One of which is a rather lengthy message, picked up on Reddit by hotweels258, that reads:QUOTEDo you like our latest creation? We certainly hope so! :) You may remember that we sometimes send you guys secret messages like this. It's a great way for us to speak right to you instead of burying ourselves in corporate mumbo jumbo, so let's begin!
First of all--have you noticed all the details in our teaser (Yes, it's a teaser. We'll make a proper trailer in the future)? If you know the Cyberpunk setting, there are some things you can spot, like implants--look for the weapon hands and the real skin -- corporate emblems that should look familiar, and more. Happy hunting!
You're probably curious about the release. It's currently scheduled a way off in 20(14,15,16?) but in truth the delivery date is more like "when it's done". We will release Cyberpunk to you when we're convinced it is nothing but pure, refined, unadulterated awesome. We want it to be the most kick ass futuristic RPG ever-- OK, maybe this sounds pretty bully, but it is our actual goal! You judge if we deliver it!
Oh--And you may wonder why we announced our game so early before the release. The reason is that we're still building our Dev team, so if you are a talented dude or dudette, willing to work in a really different company (gamers rule & boring corporate stuff drools) on a single ambitious project, send us your application right now! email@example.com
So, you want to know what kind of game Cyberpunk 2077 will be? The short description is that it will be a story-heavy, nonlinear, open world RPG based on the well known Cyberpunk pen&paper system and setting. Building open world games is something we are mastering right now, and we believe (misspelled in trailer, heh) that properly joining nonlinear gameplay with an excellent story telling will bring a totally new quality. Hmm.. we'll tell some more about it soon!
And that's not all that's new, we are about to reveal our other project, which is much closer to being completed and yes, it will also be a fully open-world game with an intense story. You can probably guess the game we're talking about - on the 5th of February it will all be clear.
So stay tuned as we will have quite a lot to show and tell you soon!
We are waiting for you on our newly created forum called afterlife--what other name could we have chosen for it? :)

So not only do we know that Cyberpunk 2077 is going to be an open world, non-linear futuristic RPG, but CDProjektRED are actually working on a second project, due out sooner that Cyberpunk 2077, that I think we can all safely assume to be The Witcher 3. But not only that, it's going to be open-world. If you're not excited about this, I don't know why. A Skyrim/Two Worlds/Gothic type experience set in The Witcher universe and made by arguable one of the best and most respectable developers of contemporary times? You know, the developers who release their game then get straight to work patching out all the bugs they can find, redoing any work that needs touching up and releasing it all as a mega patch, for free, rather than focusing on DLC? What's not to like?
I'm putting this on all the Nexus sites for RPGs and open world games, because if you haven't looked in to The Witcher series it's about time you did. You have time to play through the first two games so once the third comes out you're ready. And what's more, the SDK that's currently in closed beta for The Witcher 2 should be due out in the not too distant future. The future seems bright for this awesome series, and you should get on board.
Just a quick update today.
We've had a lot of requests from mod authors to add the ability to order your uploaded file images so you can choose how your images display on your file page. Up until now all we've had is a "primary" image option that selects the thumbnail to display in category and search results.
Today we've released an update that now allows you to easily drag and drop your uploaded images so they'll show on your file page in the same order you've selected within your admin section. The first image in the list will be your primary image.
A couple of great mods that will make your Skyrim experience a lot more immersive. Yes, it is a word now. I don't care what the spell checker says!
