The lights are on
Game Informer's web coverage of our The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim cover story has proven to be popular with Bethesda's legion of devoted RPG fans. Today, we're pleased to present a special edition of the Game Informer Show, in which Bethesda's Todd Howard answers questions we solicited from our community of online users. It's nearly an hour of freewheeling discussion, we put your queries to Howard, who gives some revealing responses -- while still leaving more than a bit of mystery surrounding the game. Some of the topics covered include the game's combat system, spells, factions, and the powerful dragons that reign terror over the world of Skyrim.
Note: We thank all our readers who submitted questions. We received an unprecedented number of responses, and as a result, it was simply impossible to have Todd answer more than a fraction of the submissions. In hopes of covering as many readers as possible, we tried to concentrate on questions that were asked many times over by multiple readers. Still, if your question was not answered, we apologize.

It's amazing how you guys got 1500 comments for the story! People love their Elder Scrolls, huh?
Good show! A bit bummed that there won't be a normal edition of the podcast this week, but whatever. This was interesting enough. :)
Todd Howard always does a great job of representing Bethesda and their games - I like his honesty regarding certain aspects of Oblivion. Thanks to everyone involved with putting this on. I hope we see more Q&A sessions like this in the future.
I was hoping that the intro music would be the new "Skyrim" theme, but no such luck... oh well, more to look forward to I guess :P
Todd Howard is the man of the year!
Thanks Howard for taking you time and tell us about your amazing game.
And also thanks to GI for the fantastic coverage of this game!

Again, I leave much more excited than when I arrived. Ready for November!
I finally got one of my questions answered in a Q@A podcast! Thank you GI!
I'm going to try and play some more Oblivion in the near-future; I've yet to acutally 'beat' the game, and I'd really like to jump back into Cyrodiil before I get my hands on Skyrim this fall.
I know right? My username is cool as hell ;)
Wow, is that the games intro music? Awesome.
Thank you Todd Howard and Gameinformer for all of this great coverage.
