Talking to Geoff Keighley on this week's episode of GTTV, Todd Howard, the director of Skyrim, reveals that not only will you fight dragons in the game, you'll be able to take on some of their abilities. Learning their "words of power" will allow you breathe fire, send enemies flying, or do any number of dragon-y things. I'm hoping to lay some eggs, personally. He also explains why the series is finally coming up north to Skyrim, and how the team's focus is creating the "biggest, craziest Role Playing Game," rather than fitting it into a larger story.
After all the dragon talk, the episode shows off a level from id's RAGE that takes it out of the dusty western environs and into a slightly grimier, urban area. We also get footage of some of Uncharted 3's multiplayer modes, which look to be getting a bigger push this time around, a little bit from Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, and the reveal that Gears of War 3's Jace will be voiced by Haddie's boyfriend on Parenthood.
