Why Skyrim should be your Game of the Year

Why Skyrim should be your Game of the Year

Skyrim is a great game, but the best thing about Skyrim is that it proves the other gaming developers – and more importantly publishers – wrong about everything that they think that they know about the industry. Skyrim sold huge. Really huge: sales exceeded 3.4million in the first two days and is now well over 10million.  It dominated PC sales charts and the Xbox 360 sales charts and beat the record of the last game in the...

UPDATED – EA: “I’m sorry we can’t take your call… we are too busy screwing up Dragon Age 2…”

Honest Review: Just Cause 2

Honest Review: Just Cause 2

I am currently playing Just Cause 2, which is by far the most fun I have ever had playing a sandbox game.  I typically don’t spend much time exploring and goofing around with side missions and fun tricks when playing sandbox games.  Steal all the cars in GTA?  No way, too boring.  But this game?  It kicks ass.
