Needless to say, it quickly became my favorite video game. Since its inception, ESO has been overhauled, enhanced, and updated, making the game a fantastic experience for its millions of players. In honor of its eighth anniversary, let’s look at some of the major milestones in ESO history.Continue reading

The Elder Scrolls — Zaneta’s Chronicles, Part One: Vvardenfell
Having sunk hundreds of hours into various video games in The Elder Scrolls franchise, I’m a massive fan of this series. Therefore, I’m always looking for different ways to immerse myself in the world that is The Elder Scrolls, whether it be through the soundtracks, tabletop games, or novels.

Book Review: The World Of The Witcher
The Witcher is one of the most influential and successful video game series of all time. Inspired by a series of best-selling books, The Witcher universe has become expansive, now including a hit TV show on Netflix entering its second season. The Witcher video games have sold well over 50 million copies, with more than 30 million of those sales attributed to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a game so wildly popular that it keeps getting released on new video game systems, most notably, the Nintendo Switch, which is the version I’m currently playing. But if you’re new to this fantastical universe and you want to get caught up on all of the specifics, should you buy The World of the Witcher: Video Game Compendium? Read on for my thoughts.Continue reading
Review – The Elder Scrolls: Call To Arms
The Elder Scrolls is one of my favorite video game series of all time. I enjoy all entries in this franchise, including the spinoffs and The Elder Scrolls Online. While many of The Elder Scrolls games have been successful, Skyrim is the one that practically everyone knows. The fifth entry in the series, it has sold over 30 million copies across various systems since its release in 2011. This summer I completed the main quest in this game, along with numerous side quests, on the Nintendo Switch. I also sunk more than 150 hours into The Elder Scrolls Online on my PC – which is an excellent game that I highly recommend. When I read that Skyrim’s open world was coming to a tabletop game created by Modiphius, entitled The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, I was intrigued.
The Infernal City & Lord of Souls
For more than 25 years, the Elder Scrolls has been one of the most popular and influential video game series in existence. Its success has resulted in its lore permeating numerous mediums, including books. In 2012, one year after the release of the incredibly popular video game Skyrim, two novels were published: The Infernal City and Lord of Souls, both by Greg Keyes. These books are a singular narrative split across two books, making for an intricate and compelling tale steeped in Elder Scrolls lore.
The Skyrim Library, Volume III: The Arcane
This is the third and final book in The Skyrim Library trilogy. Make sure to check out my reviews for Volume I and Volume II. Just like the first two books, this one is excellent! This entry focuses on magica, religion, and more. Watch my video review below for all of the details on The Skyrim Library, Volume III: The Arcane.
The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook
The Elder Scrolls: The Official Cookbook is a beautifully bound hardback book that clocks in at nearly 200 pages and more than 70 easy-to-follow recipes so you can take in all of the diverse tastes of Tamriel. Released in 2019 by Insight Editions, this cookbook does a wonderful job of respecting its source material and providing gamers and foodies alike with a wealth of options to try at home. As a longtime fan of the Elder Scrolls franchise, I appreciate having the opportunity to create dishes I’ve only ever seen in the games. It’s a fascinating and brilliant bridge between Tamriel and reality. Yes, other cookbooks have done this in the past. However, the Elder Scrolls games are steeped in rich history and culture that goes beyond other titles – making this book feel like an artifact one might find and read in Skyrim, Oblivion, or Morrowind.
