Bethesda games are renowned for two very distinct traits: Having large, open worlds that give players a level of freedom unheard of in most other games, and bugs and glitches that can be either game-breaking or hilarious. It’s safe to say that their latest offering, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, doesn’t disappoint in these two areas. However, does it live up to previous games in the Elder Scrolls series, or is the Dovahkiin a dud? Read on to find out.
The tower defense genre has been kicking into full gear lately. It seems that every other week, a new tower defense game is released via Steam, PSN, XBLA, etc. However, more or less each new title released is able to expand upon the defense genre and put its own unique spin on things. The latest of these games, Dungeon Defenders (developed by Trendy Entertainment) attempts to mix the already addicting aspects of tower defense with the even more addicting aspects of a co-operative action RPG ala Diablo. Is this game a perfect matchup of towers and treasure, or should it be locked away in a dungeon? Read on to find out.

Retro gameplay is slowly but surely making a comeback in a world inundated by cover based shooters and multiplayer FPS games. Team Meat made this clear with their smash hit Super Meat Boy, a love letter to classic platformers such as Super Mario Brothers. Continuing with this trend is Edmund McMillen (1/2 of Team Meat) and Florian Himsl’s latest game The Binding of Isaac, a roguelike RPG reminiscent of classic Zelda games. Does the game recapture Super Meat Boy’s charm and difficulty, or is it a failure that deserves to be locked away in the basement? Read on to find out.
