    A modder has made a stunning machinima battle scene using more than a thousand characters in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
    YouTube user Tyrannicon put together the below video, which features 500 Draugr, 200 skeletons, 500 Dwarven Warriors and a dragon, using mods and console commands. It follows the release earlier this week of the Creation Kit, an extensive suite of modding tools that simplifies sharing and discoverability using the Steam Workshop.

    Shoe company Converse, famous for its iconic All Star High Top trainer, has collaborated with Nintendo on a Mario-themed sneaker.
    Converse Japan's Super Mario Bros. X Converse One Star Ox shoe (we're not entirely sure why Mario All Star didn't make the cut) comes in white, or black, and red with a pixelated Mario sprite and inset yellow star.
    They'll be available to buy in March.
    While we're on the subject of videogame-themed clothing, Black Milk has also created this Mario Star swimsuit and some Tetris leggings.

    Following the precedent set by commercial airliners, the U.S. Air Force plans to buy up to 18,000 iPads for its Air Mobility Command (AMC), replacing heavy flight bags with light and efficient Apple iPad 2s for the crews that fly cargo aircraft. The devices will reportedly be used by the crews on the C-5 Galaxy and C-17 Globemaster aircraft. There are several benefits to using electronic flight bags instead of physical versions. For one, the iPad can instantly update charts electronically, while the AMC would require flying charts get reprinted every 28 days to stay up-to-date. By cutting publication printing and distribution costs, and exchanging 70 pounds of paper for a 1.3-pound iPad, the Air Force can save some serious cash, including more than $1.2 million worth of fuel per year."

    Company 'targets San Francisco for major press conference'

    Apple could launch the iPad 3 on the same week and in the same city as the Game Developers Conference, a new report claims.
    John Paczkowski, the All things Digital journalist who correctly predicted the unveiling of the iPhone 4S when the rest of the tech press was fizzing with wild guesses, now claims Apple has chosen the first week of March to debut its next generation tablet computer.

    “The event will be held in San Francisco, presumably at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts [(pictured)], Apple’s preferred location for big announcements like these,” Paczkowski wrote in his report.
    If true it would mean Tim Cook’s company would be holding a press conference just a few hundred yards away from the Moscone Center where GDC takes place.
    This would not mark the first time an Apple and GDC have been separated by just a thin stretch of San Franciscan highway. Last year, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and Apple’s late CEO Steve Jobs were both addressing their respective industries in two keynotes that had aligned with each other. The chance occurrence was given an even eerier quality when Iwata spent much of his time warning developers about the threat of Apple’s digital games platform.

    Microsoft is set to release the first public beta release of Windows 8 on the 29th of February at an event in Barcelona, describing the release as a "consumer preview".
    The event coincides with Mobile World Congress which also takes place in Barcelona that week, perhaps giving some indication of mobile devices for Microsoft's new OS.
    Microsoft hasn't announced a date Windows 7 will be released to manufacturing although it's widely thought to be around the October time frame. There's still plenty that could push the date back given the ambitious nature of Windows 8, with an entirely new UI and built-in Store, compared to earlier releases.
    Assuming Microsoft follows the strategy as previous public betas, the Windows 8 "consumer preview" will probably not expire until the final version is nearing release. More will doubtless come to light as MWC draws near.

    As overall digital gameplay rises by 241 per cent since 2008.
    Market researcher Parks Associates says 135 million people play digital games across mobile, free-to-play (F2P) and social platforms for at least one hour per month, which is up from 56 million in 2008.
    17 per cent of gamers have downloaded a game to their smartphones, rising from seven per cent in 2008. Additionally, around 80 per cent play F2P games on the PC or via Facebook on games such as Farmville, according to the report.
    In November, we reported that iOS and Android are generating more revenue than Nintendo and Sony's portable games combined, and Parks says that mobile and online are changing the industry.
    Pietro Macchiarella, Parks Associates research analyst and study author, said: "Instead of ending support of customers after they buy individual game titles, game companies now focus on building gamer communities and developing ongoing relationships with their customers.
    "The positive effect of this approach is that game monetisation can be extended beyond the point of sale. Unlike traditional offline games, the online world allows the industry to earn revenue even when people play the same game repeatedly."

    Alex Garden, Xbox Live's general manager, has issued a lengthy statement regarding the ongoing battle against Xbox Live hackers and online fraud, offering users security tips in the process.
    The statement comes amidst growing concerns surrounding a still unexplained surge in Xbox Live account theft in recent months."I can assure you we are listening and continue to take aggressive steps to help protect you against ever-changing threats," says Garden.
    "Security is an ongoing battle. No matter how well we work to improve security - and we are working every day to bring new forms of protection to Xbox LIVE - our work will never end. With every measure we put in place, ill-intentioned people will create new ways to attack online services."
    It was reported last month that insufficient security measures on the official Xbox.com website may be to blame for the growing number of Xbox Live account thefts.
    While Garden notes that last year "there was a surge of personal information being compromised and sold," he maintains the same response MS has had to previous questioning: "We here at Xbox have no evidence of a security breach in the Xbox LIVE service".
    His advice is the usual stuff - difference and strong passwords for each online service and the like.
    Here's the full statement from Garden:
    Your Security is Important to Me
    Since today is Safer Internet Day, I thought it'd be a good opportunity to share a few things that have been on my mind these last several months. Here at Microsoft we view this day through many lenses from online safety to privacy to account and data security and more, and we take your security and online safety very seriously.
    As all of us know, account hijacking across the Internet continues to grow. It's a thriving - albeit illegal - industry affecting online services the globe over. Last year, there was a surge of personal information being compromised and sold, and this undoubtedly has had an impact on all of us. While we here at Xbox have no evidence of a security breach in the Xbox LIVE service, that is of little comfort to our members whose accounts have been compromised by malicious and illegal attacks.
    It's in this vein I'm reminded how important it is to listen to you, our members - to really listen, to really hear and to really do something with what you say. I can assure you we are listening and continue to take aggressive steps to help protect you against ever-changing threats. We also care deeply about how this ongoing issue affects your experience with Xbox LIVE and your trust in us.
    Security is an ongoing battle. No matter how well we work to improve security - and we are working every day to bring new forms of protection to Xbox LIVE - our work will never end. With every measure we put in place, ill-intentioned people will create new ways to attack online services.
    That's why I believe it's more important than ever that our members are armed with information and security tools to actively partner with us in this war on fraud. We have a dedicated web page at http://xbox.com/security detailing all the steps you can take today to help protect your account.
    What you'll see here is the most common sources of attack continue to involve:
    social engineering to gather information about the user to guess the password;
    phishing, whereby the user types the account password into an illegitimate website that is pretending to be something else;
    malicious software on the computer that has captured the password; or
    using the same password from another online service that has been breached.
    I share these realities in hope that our members will work with us to reduce the ease of access for hackers. Personal account security starts with setting strong passwords and routinely changing them, using a valid email and a unique password for each online service, adding a phone number, alternate email address, and a unique and private security question via the Windows LIVE ID Account Management site, and reducing the amount of personal information shared online or through social networks. More and more, being mindful of where you login to online services, even when not using Xbox LIVE, and using single-use codes, provides added protection, especially when you're signing in from a PC that isn't your own. Working together we can prevail over the criminals.
    I realize it may fall flat when we don't share specific details of our security architecture. However, some of the security measures we have in place to help protect our members include password-attempt throttling, CAPTCHA (an industry-standard anti-scripting measure designed so that an actual human needs to answer the challenge), strong proofs (trusted PC, pin sent to cell phone, secondary e-mail and security questions), and account lockout for multiple failed attempts and compromised accounts, which we investigate and recover to the rightful owner.
    Getting ahead of potential threats of harm is an important area of focus. At a broader level, Microsoft continues to investigate cyber-criminals and bot ...

    Playstation Whata? Through February 12, GameStop has Nintendo 3DS systems, including the Pearl Pink version launching on the 10th, on sale for $149.99, a $20 discount. We're sure the timing of this sale is perfectly innocuous -- it's just a coincidence that a competitor's handheld gaming system will be in stores two days after this sale is over.

    Alternately, you could think of that $20 as a subsidy for the Circle Pad Pro (also out this week, only at GameStop) allowing you to pick up two analog pads for the price of one.
