Welp, Bethesda just killed the 'Skyrim on everything' joke

And a Samsung smart fridge

Bethesda has brought its wildly-successful RPG Elder Scrolls: Skyrim to basically every platform, from the PS3 to PS4 to PC to the Nintendo Switch. I'll let you know how it goes.

But perhaps the most intriguing launch was initially a joke: an Alexa modified version of Elder Scrolls.

For the first few moments of the Skyrim: Very Special Edition trailer, you kind of want it to be real.

Of course, the longer Keegan-Michael Key destroys his home in the process of playing the game, it's clear that maybe voice-based gaming isn't the right fit for Skyrim. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill.

Scientists find new solar systems with planets the same size as ours
Importantly, this discovery could help scientists understand how these types of planets form so close to their host star. Even more, the scientists calculated that the planet completes a full orbit around its star in only about 20 Earth days.

Then people found out they could play it.

It already has RPGs Dungeon Adventure, and Shadow Run so why not a dragon-battling multi-threaded choose your own adventure, complete with Skyrim mythos?

Skyrim: Very Special Edition is available now on Amazon Alexa. "Should work", says our resident Alexa expert. Hopefully we can avoid any arrows to the knees this time around.

Unfortunately, it looks as if the skill is now only available in the United States version of the Amazon Alexa Skills store.
