The idea for Hearthfire, Skyrim’s upcoming DLC which lets you build your own house, came from the first “Game Jam” session Bethesda developers held at the studio.

Last night on Conan, our intrepid host Conan O’Brien showed another one of his Clueless Gamer segments, and this time he tried his best, or rather, did something in Skyrim. While it wasn’t one of his best segments, it’s posted below. I thought the slow-mo bit was better, actually, I laughed my ass off , but maybe I’m just weird.

Reader rrw sent in this video of someone playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on a Vita. This is not a thing you can do unless you’re good with technical tomfoolery, and in fact doesn’t actually work that well – but holy bananas I could get behind a proper port of the Life Eater, couldn’t you? Sony has shown off PlayStation 3 games running via the Vita’s RemotePlay function in the past, but there’s no word on when the feature will become publicly available.

Bethesda’s announced that those who wish to participate in the Xbox 360 beta for Dawnguard should sign up here. Applicants need a registered account on the official forums, so make sure your forum email address is up-to-date. Bethesda will be selecting applicants in about a week. Players accepted into the beta will receive an Xbox Live code to redeem Dawnguard. The beta is the full version, and those participating will not have to purchase the content. Dawnguard is out this summer as a 30-day exclusive Xbox Live for 1600 MS points, after which it will release on PC and PS3.

ZeniMax has filed another Skyrim-related trademark covering computer game software with the USPTO. The filing is for Hearth Fire, which in the game is a skill book titled “2920, vol 09 – Hearth Fire”. The book is part of 12 volume series and beefs up your conjuration skills. The application was filed on May 24 and it’s unknown what the firm’s plans are for this exactly. It could be DLC or something else entirely. Thanks, Fusible.

An industrious Skyrim modder has posted a video showing how the PC version of the game works with Kinect. As shown in the video below, using a Blootuth headset the voice control component of Kinect is used for shouts and menu navigation, and of course, the techs prerequisite arm-swinging will implement weapon and magic attacks. Links for how he implemented the tech are through the YouTube link here. Thanks, CVG.

It looks as though some players are still experiencing some lag issues in Skyrim on PS3, even after applying the patch released on Monday. Furthermore, both PS3 and Xbox 360 users are reporting the patch came with a new bug, which causes players to take full damage from hits despite any applied resistances.

Skyrim players have reported issues with the PS3 version once 5-6MB of stored save data is surpassed, which is apparently causing lag and the inability to interact with NPCs.

Easter Eggs in games are always fun, especially when they are subtle enough to make you think a bit. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is no exception, and many references to pop-culture, history, and other games are tosses in here and there throughout the land of Skyrim. There’s even nod, a wink, and a nudge to previous Elder Scroll games in there as well, but with so many, it may be hard for you find them. Thankfully, GameFront has you covered with a list of the known Easter Eggs so far, with descriptions of each one through the link. Those who prefer to be more like Magellan, may wish to skip the link and find the funnies for themselves. If you know of more than what’s listed, hit us up in the comments section.

Skyrim’s dragon attacks, like Oblivion’s gates, won’t start grinding you into fishpaste until you’re nominally ready for it.

Bethesda’s Craig Lafferty has laid out some flamebait by suggesting that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has been developed primarily for consoles.

There’s some amazing sights in these E3 2011 Skyrim screenshots – mammoths, a giant, a dragon, Whiterun… Look, you’d better see for yourself.

Want to buy Skyrim just to purely slay dragons? It’s your lucky day, slick.

Bethesda’s Todd Howard has said the developer has the latest Elder Scrolls mod tools up and running on both major consoles, but has no channel through which to release them.

Bethesda will unleash a line-up of just four games in the next 12 months, the result of a long play on slow burn, high budget, high quality development. This year, we all win the jackpot.
