By on

I'm on a horse Despite universal acclaim, Bethesda’s amazing game Skyrim still has bugs, some of which range from funny to frustrating. But Bethesda’s VP of PR and Marketing, Pete Hines, has tweeted good news, saying: [blackbirdpie url="http://twitter.com/DCDeacon/statuses/137634356184363009"] Bethesda games always have rough launches, mainly because of the huge scale of their games, and Skyrim hasn’t been immune to this habit with complaints of the PlayStation 3 version becoming unstable after [...]

Video: GTA V returns to San Andreas in new teaser trailer

By on

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was revolutionary in every sense of the word. The freedom to expore this massive landscape, from the mountain ranges to the city and to the countryside.

Review: Forza Motorsport 4

By on

Forza 3, released in 2009, was Microsoft’s second shot on the Xbox 360 at the major car simulation market dominated by Sony’s juggernaut Gran Turismo franchise. It was an extraordinary attempt from Take 10 Studios and was received well. Sales still didn’t match the, in my opinion, inferior Gran Turismo 5, but it was a brilliant game which was unfortunately up against a bigger brand. Now, in 2011, a new [...]
