Skyrim Achievements: Capture regions, get married and be Elder Scrolls' Most Wanted

Bethesda's Gamerpoint haul contains a few interesting revelations

This just in: housebreaking earns you more Gamerpoints than getting married in the world of Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. So does being a Master Criminal. You're a disgrace to society, Bethesda. Don't come crying to us when your kids skip school in order to kick random wolves to death.

Completionist's friend X360a has published the full list of Skyrim Achievements, which carry the usual mild speckling of gameplay and plot spoilers. One of the more fascinating reveals is that you can capture towns and regions, possibly off the back of certain story missions.

Elder Scrolls meets Civilization? That certainly qualifies as another feature we're terrifyingly excited about. Imagine stomping through mountain forests at the head of an army, rogues in front and wizards bringing up the rear. Dragons wouldn't be quite so much bother.

Inter-species marriage. We know you're considering it.

Hardcore Elder Scrolls fans recently hacked open Skyrim's racial ability and perk list. Check out Log's list feature nine things you should do first, which is surprisingly short on typical Log behaviours. He doesn't suggest you should ride somebody like a pony, for instance.
