Video Blips: Elder Scrolls 5, Homefront, Test Drive Unlimited 2, and More

We knew it was coming. It was foretold by the wizened prophets of our age. And now that The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has revealed itself to the world, another prophecy is made crystal clear: My social life is over.

Video Blips:

• Return to mystical Tamriel and follow the legend of Dovahkiin (the "dragon born") in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. This rocky and blackened mosaic is already an improvement over the aging Gamebryo engine.

Continue after the break for the false peace promised by Korean occupiers in Homefront, the multiplayer modes of Test Drive Unlimited 2, and the design philosophy behind Epic Mickey's stylized worlds.

 

• Homefront is a game that elaborates on the what-if scenario of a unified Korea invading U.S. soil. It's also written by the guy who wrote that movie with Patrick Swayze in it.

• Take to the streets as a lone wolf or as part of a club in Test Drive Unlimited 2's multiplayer modes. I hope the vehicle damage is nice and realistic. I plan to wreck every exotic car I get my hands on. [GameTrailers]


• A veritable smorgasbord of Disney influences comprise the design of Epic Mickey. That's all fine and dandy, but what's with Robot Disco Pete?
