The Elder Scrolls Online, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Console MMO

Jonas Alexander

With the potential of a console release of an Elder Scrolls MMO, is this a chance for gamers who haven’t gone near MMO’s before to experience the fun? or should we be a bit more reserved in our hopes for this new Elder Scrolls game?

Brink: The Best Class Based Shooter This Generation

Ruaidhri Walker

Brink got screwed, there I said it, this game deserved hype, love and money, but it got nothing. I’ve tried my hand at many online shooters, some I’ve done well at, some just caressed my hair and told me they loved me whilst setting fire to my possessions. While I was unemployed a couple of years back I go more than a little bit into World of Warcraft, it was probably a psychological thing of me having nothing in my life at the time but being able to be someone in WoW blah blah blah, since then I haven’t really subscribed to anything that’s Online Only. That is until I picked up a game that I thought may be a bit like Mirror’s Edge (Which you can read here on how I’m in love with), that games was Brink.

Skyrim: “I almost caught the dragon!”

Max

South Park‘s 2007 episode “Guitar Queer-O” not only took on a great parody of the Harmonix game series, but created the  fictional “Herion Hero”, a game in which you chase a dragon – but the catch is… well, that’s exactly it – you don’t ever catch the dragon.  Bethesda’s Skyrim, made several years after the South Park episode, puts me in mind of this game.  You do catch the dragon this time around (or its soul, at least), but this is one hell of an addiction.  True, I never really liked RPGs that much, if at all; they always left a banal taste in my mouth.  Skyrim – however – well that just shoots straight through your veins.  Choose no life, choose Skyrim, choose a fucking big television.
