The lights are on
An intrepid Bethesda forum-goer has posted a summary of a Skyrim preview from German magazine PC Games. Some of the details are even new.The reported details are minor, but any Skyrim news is good news, right?
The report originally had a tidbit about planned Facebook integration, which was shot down by Bethesda marketing guy Pete Hines. Hines did not make any move to deny the rest of the report, so my guess for now is that it's legit. It's legit, see below.No huge surprises here, though I'm curious how Bethesda is approaching the problem posed by the presence of children in the go-anywhere, do-anything world of The Elder Scrolls. If it were me, I'd probably go with "avenging god immediately lightning bolts your face off" as a solution to anyone who harms a child.We've reached out to Bethesda for comment and will update this story with any new information. A Bethesda spokesperson has confirmed that the information is legit. Fans rejoice! I know you were all dying to know about lockpicking.

6 more months. Hurry up dang it...
As a forum reader I knew most of this. Until recently the only things on this list that forum members didnt know was the lockpicking minigame and the purchasing of houses.
Also GI, although I thank you for this article, you kinda already mentioned children in your Skyrim cover story ;) lol
Probably the same as Fallout. You can interact with the children, but you can harm them in any way. It's always bothered me. Chasing that boy down to get Euclid's C-Finder was irritating. I tried my hardest to cause him bodily harm.
If this is all legit; it's awesome! I really can't wait to play this! :D
I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
I'm excited about an in-game economy. I kinda hope reputation has a bigger role in how shops treat you, but in those cases players who chose a moral midground get screwed over a bit
