Turtle Beach's Beautiful Game Search is Turning Out to Be a Joke.

46d ago ... Turtle Beach recently started a "campaign" to crown the best game of all time. They've narrowed it down to the top 15 games that people have been pushing for. Here is that list: Borderlands 2 Call of Duty: Ghosts Dwarf Fortress Far Cry 3 FIFA 14 Final Fantasy X Grand Theft Auto V Halo 3 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Pac Man Resident Evil Super Mario Galaxy The Elder Scrolls V:...

Why I'm Disappointed with the PS Vita

57d ago ... The PS Vita is an awesome device capable of playing console-like graphics on the go with a decent battery to boot. 2 years ago, I yearned for it and thought that if ever I bought it I'd be playing more of it than my PC and PS3. When I did not have it, I was busy playing with games such as Elder Scrolls V, Assassin's Creed 3, Singularity, Deus Ex HR, ME 3, The Witcher 2, and etc. And then came a...

DLC isn't all bad, but the bad's REALLY BAD.

496d ago ... I see a lot of heat from gamers like me over the whole DLC issue. It seems like so many game companies are releasing their games with the expectation of releasing DLC now. Many are offering DLC at release. It's easy to see why people are angry. You've just dropped $60 for the latest and greatest game of all time, and you find out that there's "extra content" you have to drop another $20 for. I...

Skyrim Journal: Volume I

599d ago ... The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of few games that I was not readily able to put down for quite some time after starting a playthrough. I found myself completely enthralled and immersed in the game and it was a rarity to catch me playing anything else within the subsequent months. However, like with all games that I find myself infatuated with, there is a cool down period in which I’ll play e...

Skyrim Journal: Prologue

602d ago ... Author's Note: The prologue to this journal is intended to serve as a brief insight into my discovery of the Elder Scrolls series and highlight the road to it. Subsequent entries will document my experience with TES V: Skyrim. I know for a fact that I was in elementary school (primary school for our UK friends) when I'd originally caught wind of The Elder Scrolls. It was during recess on the...

Dawnguard and PS3: Forbidden Bedfellows?

726d ago ... Dawnguard on Xbox 360? In attendance. Dawnguard on PC? Late, but you're lucky you made it. Dawnguard on PS3? Dawnguard on PS3? Bueller? Okay, jokes aside, things are looking pretty grim for Bethesda right now. I can't go a day without hearing about the whole "Dawnguard being absent from PS3" or "Dawnguard doesn't work on PS3". Hell, I'm lucky that Dawnguard made it on the PC. You know, the o...

5 Things We Want to See in The Elder Scrolls Online

779d ago ... The release of The Elder Scrolls Online is still a ways off but that doesn't mean we can make a few suggestions on what we would like to see when we take our first steps in game. The Elder Scrolls series is filled with tons of lore, mysteries and cultures giving TES:O a lot of opportunity to become one of the best MMOs to date, here are a few things we hope they don't miss. 1. The Ability to...

Rescuing Oblivion from the Depths of Dust

825d ago ... Last night while I was relaxing on the armchair, cup of peppermint tea in hand and turning a page of Live and Let Die, I had an epiphany. It was the overall grim, dark, and uncomfortable setting of the novel that reminded me of the planes of Oblivion in the fourth [canon] instalment of the Elder Scrolls series. Upon realizing this, I made haste to my computer and looked up my games history via...

The Game Industry, or why I'm not a Developer.

827d ago ... Ever since my most tender years, I knew that I loved videogames. I loved them like Kennedy loved Monroe: Passionately, but at the cost of my health. Being epileptic, my parents have always been skeptical, and highly critical of my favorite past time, in fear that it would kill me. But at the rate things are going, the video game industry will kill itself before it has the opportunity to do me a...

Yearly instalments: What about the games?

952d ago ... Just as a little introduction, this is an issue which I am in two minds about. There could be much debate about this subject to which no end will ever be reached. What I aim to do is provide a picture of the gaming community's attitude towards yearly instalments as well as give you my analysis of why we have yearly instalments in the first place and how it affects my ability to enjoy a game....

365 Days of Gaming - Day 6: Skyrim

960d ago ... Right, well this is what happened. I decided to have a go at the Repairing the White Phial quest given by Quintus Navale of Windhelm with my wood elf, Volpe. I was knee deep in the playthrough with a house in Windhelm and Whiterun, smithing maxed out and a chest full of fancy weapons including daedric, rare enchanted weapons, and I was a good 30 levels into the game. That's when Skyrim f-ed me...

XBox Hides Evil in New Update

965d ago ... If you are like me, you love your Xbox 360. With Halo, Call of Duty and the Elder Scrolls fresh on the market, it has never been a better time to be a gamer. Xbox offers us countless hours of bleary eyed, sleepless entertainment that only the sudden realization of school or work can pull us away from. And now the staff at XBox offers you a few new surprises. The removal of your Constitutional r...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 3: Skyrim

967d ago ... It's been a long and winding road since my initial go of Skyrim back in November 2011. I have been nothing but impressed, pleased, satisfied, and all those good terms with the game. There's been the occasional bug here and there, but nothing too serious that either rendered quests impossible to complete (like those horror stories I've read about) or take away from gameplay. What's really been c...

365 Days of Gaming - Day 1: Skyrim

968d ago ... It was 11 November 2011 - 11.11.11 as I found it most interesting. I was in line at GameStop having a cigarette and a conversation with a fellow gamer about what we expect from the next instalment in the Elder Scrolls lineage. We had a good chat and no sooner did we finish, it was our turn to get in the store and pick up our copies of the game at the midnight release. I didn't waste a moment af...

Why do single points between 90 and 100 on metacritic act as a barometer for "GOTY-worthiness" ?

1016d ago ... *Around the time the review embargo for Uncharted 3 has been lifted, it receives a 94 aggregate score at some point" *Enter likely candidate here*: I'm not exactly sure if you've noticed, but Uncharted 3 has 94 metascore. That's 3 points higher than Gears of War 3 (atm) making it thrice as likely to win GOTY (Game of the Year) awards from major publications. Where this fictional candidat...

Skyrim Preview (E3)

1171d ago ... Guests waiting to enter the Skyrim presentation were herded into a room within the Bethesda booth and challenged by a representative to make sense of the wall with dragon scrawl all over it, the same one gracing a GameInformer cover which has already been translated from Dragontongue to the decidedly more intelligible: Dragonborn, Dragonborn by his honor is sworn to keep evil forever at ba...
