too bad zenimax took it down for copyright infringement...

EDIT: thanks for the alternate link!

Haha! This is fucking hilarious! The best part is, this is some of the least threatening music from that game.. they could have easily picked something better and more fitting.

The really, really shitty part is that this might be the only way North Koreans get to experience that tune.

For me, it will always be connected to great adventure and standing on the edge of a vast world- for them it will be connected to meaningless propaganda that they´ve probably heard a thousand times before. Sad, really.

Forgive me for asking, but as a non-elderscrolls-steeped person, what in the video had a link to Mehrunes Dagon?

Nothing apart from the music. It´s the main menu music from Oblivion and Mehrunes Dagon sorta kinda plays a small little role in that game.

Does this mean that Obama's going to turn into a dragon at some point?

Also someone at North Korean propaganda HQ must really like video games, first CoD then Obilivion.

Ah, I guess watching the video with no sound on didn't help either.

How weird is it to know that our little niche hobby of gaming is being used so often in North Korean propaganda? I propose a video of Kim Jong Un doing a push-up or eating a salad.

See, between this and the Chinese hacking stuff, part of me just expects this to turn out to be just a couple of assholes trolling the U.S. into starting WW III or something.

I'm almost convinced that it isn't actually North Korea doing this but some schmuck in his basement. I mean, shit, I know fuck-all about making a video of any sort but give me half a day and a four hundred dollar laptop and I could whoop up something better than this, or at least equal to it.

Why does Dagon sound familiar? Like the villain of a high fantasy video game?

Man, its hard to take them seriously when they cant even make a decent propaganda video. You can do better NK.

For a tourism video they should use the theme from Morrowind.

Great and glorious country of Korear, as seen on vice.

Oh boy. Sign me up!*
