GameInformer: The Sounds Of Skyrim

In a sprawling role-playing epic like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, good audio can make or break the experience. An out-of-place musical theme, a poor voice actor in a key role, or a goofy sound effect can ruin the immersion, pulling players out of the excitement of the game. At the same time, strong audio work can help a game soar, deepening every level of involvement in the world of the game. We talked with Mark Lampert, audio director and sound designer at Bethesda Game Studios, and the chief architect of the aural experience players will encounter in Skyrim. He revealed details on all the sound elements players will encounter in the game, and had some fascinating examples of his work to share.

Hopefully there will be a greater number of supporting voice talent. I got tired of hearing the same voices again and again. I know it has to be that way to a certain extent, but they could definitely improve on that aspect of Oblivion.

Right now I'm playing my 13th play through. oblivion was my second game this gen behind call of duty 2. After almost 5 years I'm still discovering something new in Cyrodiil. You guys might say it's look's awful in terms of graphics but at it's time it was one of the best looking games. SKYRIM is set 200 years after the event's of oblivion and is the first game in the fourth era the game could change dramatically but Bethesda is good at taking risks.

Hopefully next week mass effect 3 get's the cover
