Here's the ESRB description:

Rating summary: This is a fantasy role-playing game in which players assume the role of Dovakin, a prophesied figure with the power to combat dragons in the fictional world of Skyrim. As players traverse through mountainous open-world environments, they complete missions and quests that impact the eventual fate of their character. Players use swords, bows and arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., fireballs, ice shards) to kill various enemies (e.g., wolves, dragons, human bandits and soldiers). As players engage in melee-style combat, some sequences are highlighted by slow-motion effects, particularly for decapitations. Large blood-splatter effects also occur during combat, and some environments are stained with blood or body parts (e.g., heads impaled on spikes). Some sequences allow players to injure/kill nonadversary characters, including prisoners chained to a wall; they scream in pain amid splashes of blood or fire. As the game progresses, the dialogue and on-screen text contains references to sexual material (e.g., “. . . all the *** your heart, or any other organ, desires,” “She . . . raped the men as cruelly as Bal had ravished her,” and “Remember when you thought [he] was . . . intent on making you . . . into his personal *** slave?”). Alcohol such as wine, mead, and ale can be purchased and consumed by players' character throughout the game; and in one sequence, players can engage in a drinking contest with another character, which eventually results in slurred speech (e.g., “One more. No problemsh . . . Thash grape!”).

lol yessssss

so i know what perk/perk path i'm picking up in skyrim. i wonder if that's for all one-handed weapons or just bladed. hopefully just bladed cause it'd be a bit odd to see a guy get his head cut off by a maul or mace.

Violent..... but fun I guess.

You have to figure the two handed perk has that as well. Not to mention a arrow with added effects. I can't wait to find out!

i read about that today not only decapitation limbs and blood splash will mark the terrain around a fight.

Guess that's why it's rated M

At least they're using that M rating now. Oblivion wasn't supposed to be M but then the ESRB got pissy about a texture you couldn't even see and used some mumbo jumbo about "not seeing enough of the "violently graphic" Dark Brotherhood questline" to cover their asses. So at least this time, with that rating, Bethesda will actually use it.

maybe one of the DB missions will be to assassinate some big official or whatever, then dismember him and send his pieces to his friends in all the cities in skyrim, either to send a message or plant the body parts on them to frame them.

See, if the Dark Brotherhood had been like that in Oblivion, I would've actually enjoyed doing that questline rather than being bored to tears the whole way through.
