Tricky to comment on something turning out exactly as expected. "Well there you go then", "That's that" and "Hmmm, yes" only go so far in earning a games journo's monthly riches and credability. But, in cases such as the arrival of a haul of new screens for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, I find myself in a complete state of what can only be described as unremarkably not-displeased. Because they look exactly how I expected them to.
But that's no bad thing, because they are rather pretty.
Trees, caves, muscley men with pointy things and way too much exposed flesh for anything even resembling safe melee combat... All are present and correct, along with snow and some ethereal translucent ghosty bastards. Oblivion but prettier? Pretty much sums it up. But that's exactly what you wanted, right? So scroll down and feast your eyes.
Like what you see, guvnor?
