Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition – Mac / PC Review

Aaron

Do you remember many years ago when a game meant something more than a 4 hour campaign and tacked on multi-player? Do you remember when seeing the game over screen was not just a chance to reload your last checkpoint? More importantly, do you remember the last time a game showed you its teeth and didn’t just hand you victory after victory wrapped in pretty packages? Baldur’s Gate does and it wants you to roll up your sleeves and dive in head first… are you up to the task?

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.
