Oblivion bear rolling passes time while we wait for Elder Scrolls V

Do you like being amused? If you said "yes" aloud to your screen, you need to watch this video (and stop talking to text, we can't hear you). And if you play Oblivion, you definitely need to try this and post more videos on YouTube.

The concept is simple: "Find a bear. Go to the top of a hill. Paralyze bear. Watch." And that's why we continue to play and love open world games for so long... long enough to keep us entertained while we wait for the next one, which we sure hope Bethesda announces at E3 next week. But until that happens, bear rolling.

Wait, what? Bear rolling doesn't do it for you? Well shit, how about deer punching?

(Thanks Reddit! And yes, we know this is old. Shut it.)

    If there isn't an announcement of Elder Scrolls V at E3, I'm gonna do a poo in somebodys mouth. If we do get an annoucement and they say its going to be a MMO then I'm gonna do a poo into two peoples' mouths.

    I see a potential Olympic sport. See this video for bear-punching to the sounds of William Shatner's Rocket Man:

    Bear rolling is a past time that started in the Rocky Mountains but It died out due to various reports of mauling / deaths

    Bear rolling = WIN Reminds me of a time when I was playing Fallout 3 and shot the head off of a Yao Guai with VATS while it was in mid-jump. The thing's head came off, and then both head and body continued to sail through the air afterwards for a respectable distance.

    Just another thing we find out in the vast world of Oblivion, nuts.

    LoL I have played every Elder Scrolls game and never thought about doing that. Hilarious. I also hope they announce ES:V at E3! Best RPG's ever!!
  • 8bitBaby - June 10, 2010 2:10 a.m.

    Tyler are you hinting you know something about elder scrolls V? like how MvC 3 was mentioned on the cast a week before? hmmm.....
  • DrKiss - June 10, 2010 12:14 a.m.

    I do prefer my bears paralyzed, and rolling down a hill to the point it would look as though feces should be flying
  • festafreak - June 9, 2010 11:57 p.m.

    I just started, or continued playing my first and only game in this game... I was in some hills and followed a wolf I killed for quite a long time. This is a pretty good game. I am still getting new quests after all these years. Although I've only played my game for ~110 hours and haven't even completed Shivering Isles.

    Tyler, I laughed so hard watching the bear rolling! I am going to try it right now. It's good to see Oblivion being mentioned because I really love that game, and still put time into it. I hope they announce The Elder Scrolls V at E3 because I've been waiting for a long time:) Good feature Tyler!

    the best thing is to eventually get so fast that you can run after and kill deer with your bare (not bear) hands
  • grizzly311 - June 9, 2010 10:43 p.m.

    Too funny.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - June 9, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    @DrFailgood Hahaha, why the hell didn't I write that? Oh wait, I banned myself from barrel roll jokes a while back. :P
  • DrFailgood - June 9, 2010 10:41 p.m.

    Do a bearell rool!
  • Noshortsforhobos - June 9, 2010 10:40 p.m.

    Hahaha, I love Oblivion. I don't think I'll ever get tired of playing it either, open worlds are the best.
  • Jordo141 - June 9, 2010 10:26 p.m.

    Damn, I have thousands of hours (not shitting you) into Oblivion and it looks like it will be getting some more.
  • bioshocker - June 9, 2010 10:21 p.m.

    I've had this game for years. I think since it came out and I still haven't beaten the main story line there are just too many distractions
