Gamer proposes with a Skyrim enchanted item

A video gamer introduced to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim by his girlfriend proposed to her in the most appropriately Skyrim way possible: with a real-world representation of the item that enables marriage within the game. Sarah Briody received the "Amulet of Mara" from her fiancé. In the game, the amulet unlocks special dialogue options, including the ability to marry other characters. Briody told Kotaku that her fiancé gave her the amulet and it didn't register at first what it meant. When she put it on he said, "Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for." Then he took a knee. For those wondering, he gave her an engagement ring, too. And she said yes.

Skyrim modder lands dream job ... on Destiny

A modder who spent 2,000 hours creating a Skyrim mod in order to snag a development job at Bethesda has been rewarded in an unexpected way. Bungie has hired him to work on Destiny. Alexander Velicky spent a year building the impressive Skyrim mod Falskaar (pictured). At the time he said his work was directed at gaining Bethesda's attention. "The best way to show Bethesda that I want a job there and should be hired is to create content that meets the standards of their incredible development team," Velicky said. Instead, the mod was noticed by Bungie, which has given him a job as associate designer.
