If you've played an Elder Scrolls game, you're probably familiar with the glowing Nirnroot plant, valued for its healing properties. If you're also playing Fallout 4 (who am I kidding, of course you are), you may have stumbled across an "experimental plant" that looks an awful lot like Nirnroot aboard an airship research station. 

I know what you're thinking, "it's just a reused asset," but, consider the notes from the scribe who discovered the plant in the Fallout universe: according to him, the plant emits a light that is a result of bioluminescence, not radiation, and makes him feel stronger when he drinks a tea made from the plant. Could they be the same plant?

It may very well be that these are totally different, but it's fun to speculate about a connection between these two universes.

Bethesda! How you tease us!

In the most recent of their educational videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, the developer goes over the importance of Intelligence.

These have been a whole lot of fun to watch, but all they do is dangle the carrot in front of our eyes before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release.

Bethesda just keeps teasing us. In one way, we love it. But in another way, it just highlights how far away Fallout 4 seems.

This newest of the educational videos, which highlights the character building S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system lets you know what the deal is behind Charisma.

Tomorrow will be October, then it's just a quick 41 days until the release of Fallout 4.

We can make it, you guys.

We can make it.

E is for Endurance.

Bethesda continues to explain the intricacies of its S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system with the third educational video that explains how important Endurance is in the wasteland.

You can watch the first here and the second right here.

Keep it up, Bethesda. You have our attention and soon you will have our money.

It just seems like suuuuch a long wait until the Nov. 10 release of Fallout 4.

Bethesda must realize this, which is why it introduced the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. educational video series to tray to satisfy our craving for the wasteland RPG. This time, the PIP boys are tackling Perception.

You can watch the first video, covering Strength, here.



Just keep making these videos, Bethesda. We'll keep watching them.

You'd think Bethesda would have plenty to do in the final weeks before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release, but the good guys and gals who are preparing the post-apocalyptic RPG also want to teach you about the game's systems.

This first video explores the Strength trait, or the S in S.P.E.C.I.A.L.. 

Enjoy!

You've already waited four years for a sequel to Skyrim and you'll have to wait a fair bit longer, if you can believe Bethesda's VP of Marketing Pete Hines.

Speaking to Dualshockers at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Hines laid out the current line of Bethesda Software, developer of Skyrim

Hines mentioned that he doesn't think we're close to hear about the next Elder Scrolls. Currently Bethesda is working on Fallout 4, and that takes the entire studio, which is 100% focused on it.

The Elder Scrolls Online just came out on consoles, and has DLC coming this year and into next year, and that's gonna be the Elder Scolls game Bethesda will be talking about for a while. Hines believes that it'll be a "very long time," before the team will talk about what they'll be work on after Fallout 4.



We can all rest assured that we'll have Fallout 4 to tide us over come Nov. 10. And we'll just satiate that desire by watching footage of the post-apocalyptic game to come.

Even if we have to go to PornHub to do it.

Redditor GatorMacheteJr loves Fallout more than you do.  Don't feel threatened, dude loves Fallout more than any of us.  This brave vault dweller collected a grand total of 2,240 bottle caps (around 11 lbs) over the last seven and a half years, and then had the stones to send those to Bethesda as payment for a Fallout 4 pre-order. 



His gamble (and very expensive shipping bill) paid off, because he's receiving a copy of the game.  According to an email he got from Bethesda, since he was the first person to try this method of payment, they'd honor it (read: don't get any ideas, rest of the internet!).  Well done, sir!
