Bethesda has a brand new blog. Actually, it's not really new:
Welcome to our little blog. We’ve actually been running this thing
for a while, but only internally while we got things sorted and got our
approvals (Matt’s mom didn’t want to sign the permission slip). This
(blog) is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now, but I didn’t
have the time to do it on my own with everything else going on (that
“Oblivion” thing, for one).
When I hired Matt to help with community stuff, I put this at the
top of his list to help me get started, along with IT guy extraordaire
Rob (”the man” who makes our sites, wiki, and this blog work) and
Lindsay (aka ShiftyEyedDog), who came up with a design. And, I pulled
in Ashley because: a) he’s been doing a lot of work on his own blog
(ashleycheng.com), and b) we’ve been friends for a while now so he’ll
pretty much go along with something and help as long as it isn’t
completely moronic, which is rare.
We hope to use this as a way of better communicating with people who
play our games, or want to know what we’re up to, and letting folks
know what’s going on with our games, communities, or just games in
We already have an outlet for official info on our games, but have
been pretty limited on providing info on cool mods that are out, put up
a gallery of fan art, do short Q&As with devs from different games,
answer questions we get from people in a place where everyone else can
see it too, or, I dunno, show off a Fallout 3 paint job someone here
did in Forza 2…that kind of thing. Official sites aren’t always a good
way to do that sort of thing, and things tend to get lost in our forums
fairly quickly. Since gaming is what we do for work and play, hopefully
this blog will cover plenty of both.
If you have ideas or suggestions, drop us an email and let us know.
Thanks very much to Bethesda's own Matt Grandstaff for letting me know.
