The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Podcast Interview

You've probably bookmarked GameInformer's Skyrim portal by now, but if not, you'll discover that they have a new podcast interview with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim lead designer Todd Howard on offer today. Topics include what sort of weapon types will be supported (no spears!), how perks will be used for specializing in skills, whether or not mounts will be supported, smithing/enchanting/alchemy/cooking and other such crafting abilities, how often we'll encounter dragons and what we should expect from them when we do, whether companion characters will be supported, and much more.
