Tweets Of The Week

Skyrim fever, a Star Trek cake fit for a member of the Voyager and Simon Pegg unloads on the state of Star Wars (again) in this week’s tweets

Sometimes working with a group of like-minded colleagues, or hanging out with a group of friends who share similar tastes in all things sci-fi, can give a misleading impression of just how popular a film, TV show, computer game etc actually is. After all, if everyone around you is talking about it, then everyone in the world must be. Maths says so.

Maths isn’t always right though (especially when we’re the ones number-crunching). But when it comes to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim , we’re willing to give it the benefit of the doubt as it seemed the whole world was dragon slaying along with us this weekend, including a significant number of sci-fi celebs. It's a geeky time for human history.

@ charltonbrooker Is he telling the truth? If so, Skyrim sounds good RT @NathanRB_61 : I threw a bear over a castle today in Skyrim. Shit was preposterous.

I now urgently need to know whether you genuinely can throw a bear over a castle in Skyrim. If you can, I'm going to get it.

@ feliciaday Skyrim = Goodbye world for a while.

Ok restarting my Skyrim character because I'm not into being an archer, and wood elves are made for that stuff. Gonna prolly do Breton.

Guys, I just had a realization. I think it's because my character isn't a redhead. IS THAT CRAZY VAIN AND WEIRD?! # rerolling

@ HamillHimself I sang the classic Platters tune, Only You for Arkham (a cappella) as a possible Easter Egg, not knowing if they'd use it or not # insidescoop

Joker manages to make the gorgeous Only You ultra-creepy, but the big question is: Who is he singing it to? HA!! I'll never tell! # insidescoop

@ simonpegg The PC World Star Wars ads are like watching the man that murdered a close relative, relieve himself on the grave of said murdered relative.

@ rcjohnso Die 3D die.

I'm the News Editor at Total Film magazine, running the opening pages of every issue where you can read exclusive interviews and see first-look images from the biggest films. I was previously the Community Editor at sci-fi, fantasy and horror movie bible SFX. You'll find my name on news, reviews, and interviews covering every type of movie, from the latest French arthouse release to the biggest Hollywood blockbuster. My work has also featured in Official PlayStation Magazine and Edge. Outside of my day job, I'm a FromSoft fanatic (proudest achievement: beating Malenia solo) and a TV connoisseur (translation: I'll watch anything).
