“It’s probably healthy for the industry because the industry gets a lot of attention when there’s all these things happening, just like the movie industry gets a lot of buzz when there’s a bunch of really big things at the movies and everyone’s talking about them all. It’s probably not healthy for everyone who has one of those titles, because as you rightly pointed out usually someone gets the short end of the stick. Someone ends up falling short and not doing quite what they expected to do.” – Bethesda VP Pete Hines, speaking to Eurogamer on the best and worst of releasing a game in the holiday period.
Bethesda has two games for the holiday season: RAGE on October 7 and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on November 11.

“[People ask us] for a game like Skyrim or Prey 2, why doesn’t it have multiplayer? Well, our question is always the opposite when we talk to a developer. If you’re doing multiplayer, why are you doing multiplayer? What are you trying to accomplish? If you’re doing it just to check a box or because every other publisher says you’ve got to have multiplayer, then just drop it, don’t bother, it’s a waste of time, a giant distraction and it’ll make for a worse overall game. We want the best game possible. If that’s a singleplayer game that’s 15 to 20 hours, then make that! Don’t waste your time on features that don’t make the game better.” – Bethesda’s Pete Hines to Edge regarding tacked-on multiplayer in games.

The top of the charts is hardly Bethesda’s Everest. The ever-growing publisher has scaled those lofty heights time and time again – typically clinging to the back of something Fallout or Elder Scrolls-related. Nobody’s perfect, though. For every Fallout 3, there’s a WET or Rogue Warrior. And Pete Hines is refreshingly honest about that. Don’t think, however, that he regrets the time, money, and resources his company put into those geese that laid regular eggs.

You may have seen this in an unfinished state a couple of times, but here’s the full banana: a massive piece of art for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim overwatching LA in time for E3. The art is hanging over the Figueroa Hotel, as posted by Bethesda marketing and PR chief Pete Hines on Twitter. If the location looks a bit familiar, it’s because it is: Final Fantasy XIII was there two years ago. You can see a high-res version of the Skyrim art here.
Game’s out on November 11 for PS3, 360 and PC.
