LISA’s trailers are incredibly effective

Never heard of LISA? No need to feel bad. It’s an extremely indie game from professional martial artist, and creator, Austin Jorgensen.

Dragon Age Inquisition suffers from the Elder Scrolls effect

Anyone who has played an Elder Scrolls game knows they all have something in common. It’s too easy to get captivated by the side quests and exploration aspects and completely abandon the storyline. Dragon Age Inquisition, is exactly the same way. Which is no surprise, since BioWare openly said during development that The Elder Scrolls more »

Dragon Age Inquisition’s tutorial lets players be (practically) invincible

Guard Dialogue Overhaul Skyrim mod adds dialogue guards deserve

If you’re anything like me, you get constantly annoyed at the lack of respect the various guards show for you in the game of Skyrim.

Jack’s back! Or, more precisely, his lookalike has joined the fun, in 2K Australia’s  that adds Borderlands baddie Handsome Jack’s surgically-altered body double to the roster of playable characters for Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

I like the Skyrim SPERG mod better than Skyrim Redone

There are two major perk overhauls I use when it comes to Skyrim mods. SPERG, and Skyrim Redone. Both mods completely re-work the way perks are done in the game, causing perks to perform differently and have an entirely different impact. Skyrim Redone is the most popular one, often being talked about on various mod more »
