If you've been playing Skyrim for the past several months and foolishly though you might be wrapping things up soon and getting on with your life, you're wrong.

According to the Bethesda Blog, Bethesda will be releasing a double pack containing Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion.  It's going to run you $29.99 for the Xbox 360 version and $19.99 for the PC version, and as of now, there is no announcment for a PS3 release. 

There seems to be some bad with the good on this one.  I think the bad is pretty obvious.  Why are XBox 360 users paying $10.00 more than PC users and what happened to the love for the PS3?  I can only assume they're getting the PS3 version ready for a later date.  But 10 bucks?  C'mon.

Now on the flip side, holy time suck of awesomeness, Batman!  I think individually Fallout 3 and Oblivion clock in at a little under 2 gagillion hours each.  And just like your hot Chemistry teacher, these titles may be a little older, but there's plenty of gas left in the tank.  There's all kinds of fun to be had on both of these games.  If you haven't played either of these and you like super long, extraordinarily fleshed out enviornments, great stories and side quests galore (hence the 2 gagillion hours), not to mention all the sweet weapons.  If deep, deep, deep, open world 1st person (or 3rd person, your choice) RPGs set in either a post-apocolyptic America or a knights and wizards fantasy enviornment, are your cup of tea, I can't think of a better bundle with more bang for your buck than this little guy.  Sure, I can complain about the $10.00 price difference on priciple, but even for $29.00 for both these games?  You won't find a better deal all year.  (Unless somehow Bethesda and Namco/Bandai teamed up and released a Skyrim and Dark Souls bundle for 50 cents.  Then that would be a better deal.  And then my head would explode.)

Make sure you're finished with Fallout: New Vegas and/or Skyrim by April 3rd, because that's when it hits the shelves.
