    Well, the great thing about this review is the video. So that's a plus.. As for the reviewers, all I can say is wow. She prefers the Xbox 360 because she wants more controls than X,Y,A,B!? Really!? Sarcasm or not, that's freaking Super Nintendo!! There are 12 buttons, 2 joysticks, and a directional pad on the PS3 controller, a "few" more features than the Super Nintendo controller that she is talking about. I think the game will be good on both platforms and probably great on the PC. Their recommendation on which platform is irrelevant, as I highly doubt they tried playing the game on all platforms. Seriously, there are a lot more gamers out there who would love to do what they are doing for a living, at least take pride in what you do and do some research so you sound a little more intelligent.

    I'm sure they are good at reviewing games they like, but this was awful. You would send someone who loves tennis to cover a football game. They don't know what to look for and what is important or interesting to the people that do play this series.

    First off I agree with most of the negative comments. These two knew very little about a game that has already released loads of info, and not to mention they were able to demo it for 3 hours. However it doesn't seem to be entirely their fault. Simply Google "Nikole Zivalich" and you may come to the conclusion that obviously she didn't get this job because knowledge of games or her amazing game journalist skills... but it is most likely her due to her looks. As for Jake Gaskill, he seems to play some weak sauce games.. well he did write that Bejeweled 3 and Monkey Island 2 were in his top 5 favorite games of 2010 along with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Limbo, and Red Dead Redemption. If you didn't notice he is a Console-ist, and even stated he has never played an Elder Scrolls before. So chances are he normally doesn't play this genre of game. These two were very poor choices to review such a high profile game and I think the blame should rest more so on their boss or whoever decided to give them the opportunity.

    (i know.. i'm an ass, but wow g4tv, wtf)

    He is not half dragon... he is whatever race you choose in the beginning of the game. He does however have the soul of a dragon. It has not been revealed and i don't think it will ever be fully explained how this happened. But to better understand it you can look into the creation myths of how Nirn and the first mortals came into existence . A good place to start is here: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/ wiki/Aedra#Origins

    lol I dont care what anyone else thinks, this preview was awesome.

    Haters gonna hate. It's the popular thing these days. Thanks for taking a little extra time to talk some more about Skyrim.

    The people b!tching probably don't realize you both have fully fleshed out reviews they can read.

    In other words, uneducated.
