Our final update has all the latest on Bethesda and a lite sample of Nintendo.
The biggest event in gaming only comes once a year. This is where all the companies come together to reveal their biggest projects and show you why you need to buy their systems or games.

No new consoles should be announced this year, but we can expect some peripherals to get some of the spotlight.

Today Bethesda revealed on BethBlog that for the most part, they are concluding their work on Skyrim. They had this to say to their supporters:
“Skyrim has been a labor of love for us since we started designing it in 2006. We never imagined it would become the phenomenon it has. And that is because of you, the fans. It was all of you who made it a success. We can’t thank you enough for embracing the game, spreading the word, and making it your own.”
