    Greetings Nerds, let's get on with it already! This week in Nerd News:


    -I know, I know, I talk about Skyrim a lot. But, ERMAHGERD NEW SKYRIM DLC!  Scheduled for release on December 7th, Dragonborn is Skyrim’s third expansion to come out this year.  From the looks of it, every Dovahkiin’s wish of being able to ride dragons will finally be granted. However, no one knows whether or not you'll be able to actually control the dragon or if it will just be a cut scene between traveling. I’ll be sure to give you all the information once it finally hits Xbox Live.


    -For most Whovians, the first five episodes of Series 7 was hardly enough for us, so we scrounge for any piece of news we get our hands on until the Christmas special.  Luckily, we've got our hands on some exciting info:  Neil Gaiman is back on to write another episode about the Cybermen!  


    -Saga issue #7 comes out next Wednesday after a long two month hiatus! If you aren't following Brian K. Vaughan's newest romp, definitely be sure to check this one out. Like I said, it's only seven issues in and has been collected into a trade paperback form, so you really have no reason not to. While I was at NYCC I was able to attend the Saga Panel and they revealed the covers for the next few issues. And let me tell you, they were goregous!*


    That's all I have for you guys this week!  Be sure to check out Kristina's Answerly video later today for more nerdiness.

    *with tons of robot sex and gore, Saga is very NSFW.  Read at your own risk!

    Hey Nerds, not much has happened this week in the Nerdisphere, but I'll try my best!  This week in nerd news:

    -All you Apple fanboys can rest easy, the iPad Mini has been announced!  Coming in at just under 8 inches, the iPad Mini will only be an inch and a half smaller than the iPad 2.  Apple will be accepting pre-orders starting today and will available in stores on November 2nd.  What do you guys think?  Will you pick one up or are you like me and don't understand why someone want a smaller iPad when they could just get an iPod Touch?

    -People are finally beginning to learn the potential of video games as a tool of teaching.  In this case, we're talking about Skyrim.  Taught by professor Donna Beth Ellard, from Rice University, ENGL 312 "Scandinavian Fantasy Worlds: Old Norse Sagas and Skyrim" teaches students to compare the influence of Scandinavian fantasy worlds on us today.  I would take an infinite amount of arrows to the knee if I could only take this class.
