Bethesda, publishers behind some of the biggest time-devouring titles of the past few years (Fallout 3/New Vegas, The Elder Scrolls Series– Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim) have dropped prices on many of their titles for secondary release channels (that is, for electronic download places where you love to buy your games).
Although Bethesda is notoriously, uh, thrifty when it comes to lowering prices on their games, now might be a good opportunity to pick up some of those titles if you either never got around to them, or think it’s worth owning another copy on a different platform (you know how sometimes you buy a game for the Xbox and you love it, but later, you want it on your PC so you can mod it? That.)
Skyrim is now $30 on both Steam and XBL:GoD. Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and all the Fallout 3 DLC are also involved in the fun.
Particularly worth mentioning, Arkane Studios’ beautiful sort-of steampunk stealth/action FPA is also now available through all three venues for $30.
