And, of course, the best thing to immortalize in brick from from Fallout 3?
This has to be the best news I’ve heard all week: a new Elder Scrolls game has been sort-of confirmed, finally. Time to wrap up those last few quests in Oblivion, folks. It only took, what, a year or three to finish that one?

How can you liven up the traditional wedding? True quirkiness goes beyond interesting dresses and video game cakes, as one California couple proved with their 8-bit DIY wedding theme. Forget a regular ol’ bouquet. Let’s get pixelated.
