Skyrim hasn’t been allowed much rest, despite the game’s 2011 release, it will be receiving two new versions at the tail end of this year on PlayStation VR and Nintendo Switch respectively. Making the rounds at PAX Australia this weekend I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to check out both of the upcoming versions and compare them to the hundreds of hours I spent with the base gam...[Read More]

We taste tested 6 disgusting video game recipes

After the last two times I ate fictional foods online, I swore I would stop punishing my body with TV trash. And I meant it. Which is exactly why I moved on to video games. Like a trained warrior, I summoned the most insane concoctions from video games that I could think of. Battle ready, I rolled up my sleeves, opened my beak, and conquered these six video game food monsters. Join me and see if I...[Read More]

Skyrim: Special Edition review: Shout, shout, let it all out

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. I think we can all agree on one thing – Skyrim is one of the most accomplished and downright excellent RPGs ever created.

Stepping foot into the world is like visiting a real plac...[Read More]

Some snapshots from Skyrim Special Edition

So Skyrim Special Edition launched yesterday for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC, and once again we can all ignore our real life responsibilities and venture out into the wilderness, take arrows to our knees and Fus-Ro-Dah to anyone who’ll listen/be blown away.

The Bethesda RPG dilemma

  What most of us love about Bethesda’s RPG games is the ability to become another person. For instance in real life I’m not a female elf who can shoot fire out of her hands, but I could totally be that in Skyrim if I wanted to. It’s part of the fun of playing an RPG, imagining you are something you’re not. It’s also part of the reason people sink hundreds of hours of playtime into thes...[Read More]

“Who cares about female protagonists?”

  The title of this article was inspired by a panel at PAX Australia by the same name, which I sadly missed. Regardless, the topic is an interesting one, and it got me thinking of an article I had read online recently regarding a study of female protagonists in video games and their relation to the games’ sales. According to the study, people were 25% more likely to purchase a game with...[Read More]

RPGs are hell for people with OCD
