New Bethesda Podcast — August 27th, 2010
The Bethesda Blog has been around for ages, but there's now a new podcast too (RSS). The first one includes an interview with id software's Tim Willits and Todd Howard, Executive Producer of Oblivion and several other TES games.
An interesting comment from Howard is that he has been writing "relatively the same type of game for a very long time ... consoles are powerful enough now that we can do some pretty deep, dynamic kind of games", which could be taken to suggest that the previous news that a new game is "ready to show" means the new game is TES V.
Howard also says that he and the Bethesda development team have been working on the game since they finished Fallout 3. He adds that they are "not ready to talk about it yet but we are really excited with how it looks. I mean, if we were forced to show it right now we'd be proud to show it, but we just don't feel the timing's quite right yet to show it." and "It's the game everybody in the team really wants to play."
