If I didn't have work and other things, I would sit and watch him play the game for twelve hours. However, I will be happy just knowing it is going on. :)

Todd Howard and Pete Hines talk about that streaming event on the Bethesda podcast in the episode dedicated to Oblivion on its 5 year anniversary.

Greg can spoil me anytime. Wait, I didn't mean it like that. Except that I TOTALLY did.

I remember when he did this! It's what prompted me to buy my 360! It sure has been a LONG five and a half years ...

So it's probably more like a 24 hours Elder Scrolls marathon then.......

Dang it, why couldn't it have been Friday when I actually don't have to work? Hope they make the entire 12 hours and Dave's mini-marathon available later to watch.

Because on Friday you can be playing Skyrim instead of watching it :)

Aww I remember when he did the Oblivion one... That was awesome and refreshing. Seems like a lot of other sites do that now today. But Greg is the man!

No way! Greg Kasavin is reuniting with his old gang for a 12 hour play session? Count me in.

i told myself that uncharted 3 would be the only game I play this semester. but the skyrim height is reaching astronomical levels

This is the best thing ever.

The last Kasavin branded Elder Scrolls marathon is the exact thing that convinced me to buy a 360 back in '06.

I put 180 hours into Oblivion, and Skyrim is a must buy.

This will be interesting. Dear fellow GBers, if it is important to you not to have anything spoiled, I would suggest not watching. That is the only way to be sure. Decide thoughtfully so that you won't have to be upset and engage in tales of woe.

So by Wednesday midnight, is this 12:00am Wednesday (tonight) or 12:00am Thursday (tomorrow night)?

Looks like heavy doses of coffee and energy drinks this week.

I am excited for this. I'm not as "in shape" when it comes to playing games for ridiculous hours on end as compared with 2006, though playing Dark Souls in the past few weeks has made for good practice. Thanks to everyone expressing interest in this insanity.

Better be playing Morrowind with a lot of mods installed. That would be a blast! I can't wait to see Greg play either. I remember watching an hour of Greg playing Oblivion. It was rad.

Sure 8am to 8pm on a Thursday, it's not like i have a job. Thanks guys.

Oh Dave is going to play Morrowind or Oblivion at midnight...on a Thursday. Like the day after Wednesday and before Friday? I mean i don't work Friday because it's a holiday and i would be able to watch this fantastically-insanely-long stream but your right THURSDAY is a far better day.

I'm forced to assume this will only be a camera fixed on his face with no game audio or video of any kind. Where can I sign up?

This is probably my only chance to catch any substantial Skyrim related material until I buy the game on Monday (work, sigh...), so I'll probably try to watch as much as I can. Thank you GB and Greg.

Edit: Oh and Dave too, can't wait for the streams.

I love the idea, but I want to experience Skyrim for the first time all by myself. If the video is archived, I'm gonna watch the 12+ hours in a couple weeks :P

Call in sick or take a 2 week vacation for a new job?!? Least this is happening before my new job starts :D

This is why I love Giant Bomb. The creativity they manage to put out there is astounding. So excited for this!

Oh man. This is greatest thing since gravy! In fact, maybe this is gravy for the heart? Eight hours of Dave followed by effing 12 of Mr. Greg Kasavin orc'ing it up in the land of the Nords?! Manohmanohman. Heart getting too big with all that grease!

I still have the draft of an unsent thank you-email to Greg around his departure from Gamespot, he (and of course our boys) really got me thinking about games in another way. I had never heard games being described and criticized this way before. For me, Giant Bomb overall and stuff like this is the epitome of the wierd and silly dreams these lovely gentlemen have for games and its community.

Thanks guys!

(Also, please archive!)

Are you serious!? It even says in the article: "Greg Kasavin of Supergiant Games". The studio that Whiskey media has massive coverage of Bastion over in their video database.

Ah well, I've missde content too so I suppose it's understandable, I just couldn't understand how you'd missed this set of videos.

I hope that you guys have had the forethought to provide Greg with a fire retardant room so that this time when the fire alarm goes off and the building does burn down the live stream won't be interrupted.

Yay :D So glad to hear Dave is going to be playing some Wed. Night (not of the new one, but whatever) considering I won't get to see any of the Greg Kasavin awesome-ness

Yes. I am pro-Greg Kasavin. Of course, I'm not going to watch the entire thing, because I do, in fact, have class. However, I will definitley check in here and there, and probably watch the whole thing assuming it gets archived. If I'm not too busy playing Skyrim that is.

I'm sorry to say this to some of the GB guys, but Greg was GameSpot for me, so when he left it made a lot bigger impact than when Brad & Co left. So great to be watching him again, missed you Greg!

Are you saying Skyrim is going beyond the rim of the sky?...

And as much as I'd like to experience Skyrim unmolested, I just can't say no to this. Starts 1AM Friday for me (s.korea) which means I can go grab my copy that very morning :D
