One of the newest, and most popular, games to the Xbox 360 is the much anticipated game “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim”. Players have waited several years for the release of Skyrim, and now that it is here they are frantically playing it! So why is this game so popular compared to other Xbox 360 games?
Bethesda Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
One of the key selling points of Skyrim is the fact that it revolves around dragons, and not just those fake cartoony ones either. The dragons in Skyrim look like they will tear you to pieces, and they just might! The dragons look realistic, as if they could come out of the game and attack you directly. Another fantastic feature Skyrim offers is its vast dungeon system, which contains over 150 different instances! These instances are not about constant mob fights with the occasional boss fight however, you will need to solve various puzzles and figure out several challenges before reaching the final boss of each dungeon. If you can make it to the end of a dungeon, the rewards will be plentiful.

For Twilight fans, you can play as a vampire. If you get bit by a vampire in Skyrim you become infected with a disease. If you don’t get it cured you will actually turn into a vampire. Not only does this change your appearance, but it changes your stats and gives you several buffs and debuffs. One example is the fact that you are stronger at night and weaker during the day.
There are many other features in Skyrim that this review has barely scratched the surface of. This game definitely lives up to its hype.
Rayman Origins Review: Sixteen years after Rayman first appeared on video game players’ screen, he’s back for a new outing. The new Rayman, dubbed “Rayman Origins,” took its first step to excellent gaming thanks to plain ol’ good ideas. Plus, Origins is great either as a single-player or multi-player game. The best part of this game, at least for me, is the little nods it gives to video games of days past, ones that you’ll only recognize if you’re a bona fide video game fan.

Rayman Origins – the GamesCom trailer
Every single stage is better than the previous one, and they’re so detailed that you may have to remind yourself to play the game instead of simply soak up the atmosphere. You’ll probably want to take your time getting through each stage, though, just to check out the surroundings. The sound and music is just as enjoyable as the scenes and you’ll get swept up in Rayman’s world in no time. The animation is smooth and all of the characters can stay in the screen without getting in each other’s way.

Rayman Origins is funny and creative, visually appealing and super fun to play. It’ll be no surprise if my fellow gamers love this game as much as I do.
Every big money movie seems to be followed by a high definition digital game. Dark Knight Rises the game will roughly follow the movie, but might include some of its own twisted features. The truth of the matter is that neither the movie or the game has been released and will not until later this year. The trailer has already been released, as well as some scintillating clues by the developer. Like the movie, the major premise of the game will be the characters Cat Woman and Bane. The trailer focuses on bane, who is less comic and much more brutal in this representation. Cat Woman remains an enigma for most of the game, and has a few confrontations with Batman. The police are of course chasing batman as the assumed killer of several people, and the end result is a long chase around a hauntingly beautiful city at night.
Game Trailer: Dark Knight rises
Dark Knight Rises features extremely realistic graphics and fight scenes patterned after live models. There are tons of gadgets and realistic carnage. Models for enemy bodies follows conventional laws of biomechanics, and when they fall down, it looks real. On the whole, Dark Knight Rises is another graphically outstanding game, but in spite of the great look and technical specs, is not brilliant in terms of plot line. It is another game designed to be bought by fans, and rides off the movie. It is not compelling enough to be a great story in its own right.
The final patch before WoW’s next expansion has finally been released, and players are ecstatic. You can finally avenge the fallen victims of the cataclysm and kill the famed Deathwing! Deathwing’s fight is pretty unique because it is the first time a raid boss has ever been able to fight in both dragon and human form. Deathwing is able to morph between his forms, each one has its own set of abilities and requires a different strategy to fight. If you are able to slay him however, the gear you will receive looks amazing! If you like red/black armor with plenty of spikes, then you will love Deathwing’s gear.
That is pretty much the main thing released in patch 4.3, along with the announcement of the next expansion. Players were pretty surprised at the newest race, the panda. The newest class is the monk. Sounds like Kung Fu Panda anyone?
If you’ve gotten the TRON: Evolution game for your Playstation 3, you may be wondering how such an antique film-turned-game can keep today’s youth and video game players entertained. You probably think that the popularity of the TRON movie should have raised the bar for the accompanying game. It’s unfortunate that that didn’t happen. And if you don´t like the game – just listening to the great soundtrack produced by the french electro-house gods “Daftpunk” will hammer a smile in your face!
Tron Evolution for Playstation 3 (beware of the french, harhar)
TRON: Evolution for PS3 leaves a lot to be desired. While it’s awesome when it comes to multiplayer options, the perks basically stop there. Evolution attempts to close the gap between today’s high-tech movies and what was cutting edge graphics for 1982. The characters don’t look nearly as good as they could – or should – and the graphics aren’t all that interesting. The animation is rigid, which is unfortunate because the characters can actually perform some pretty cool moves.
Tron Evolution for Playstation 3 – looks great!
At first glance, the world in which your character gets to play is pretty awesome, thanks to the neon blue lights and glow in the dark atmosphere. This gets old quickly, though, and the game stages fail to evolve from level to level. Except for the orange level and the green level, there’s not much differentiation, which makes getting to the next level anticlimactic.
