It’s hard to argue with people when they say Skyrim has been made so simple for casual audiences when Bethesda releases such minimal DLC at a rather steep cost for what you get.

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is the video game your grandmother hates. A weird postmodern jumble of gratuitous gore, gaudy colors and vulgar creatures. Here a robot-legged panda will shoot at you with bouncing tic-tac-shaped lasers, as elsewhere a huge Spartan-masked scorpion spews waves of neon-bordered playing cards from its stinger. In this 2D platformer, your victims—98 more abominations like the ones above—must pay the price for having enjoyed humiliating photos of you in the bathtub. Anything goes.

Dungeon crawling games are definitely coming out of the woodwork as of late.  Diablo III no doubt has its fans, and I'm pretty sure Torchlight II has a huge following as well, judging by game sales.  And let's not forget the titles that are still fun to play on Xbox Live Arcade, including the original Torchlight and the sleeper hit Crimson Alliance, which is even better playing alongside a friend.  So, with that, we're trying to figure out what made Focus Home Interactive think that R.A.W.: Realms of Ancient War would stand out, especially considering the problems it possesses.

Fear not, for Tokyo Jungle is coming on the PSN.

Skyrim is a sprawling quest for anyone to undertake, packing a potential few hundreds of hours of gameplay to exhaust -- and that's not counting its previous DLC expansion, excellent as it was. It's a behemoth of a game that you approach when you've got the time and availability, because once you commit, you're in it for the long haul.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is still to this day one of the most played games played on PC. With the Dawnguard expansion recently hitting Steam shelves, many have already have played 100 plus hours into the 2011 holiday hit. So what’s next for Skyrim? Bethesda recently filed out a trademark called Hearthfire, which could be linked to the Elder Scrol\ franchise.

I wanted to review Dust: An Elysian Tail because it looked beautiful. That and because, being part of XBLA's Summer of Arcade, the game had a chance at joining the revered company of titles like Braid, LIMBO, and Bastion.

The term “browser-based game” is not one that typically sits well with gamers. It brings up the repressed fact that there are tons of ignored invites on your Facebook asking you to help plant crops on Farmville, or go hold up a bank in Mafia Wars, or guide a football into the endzone in Return Man. But there is the occasional diamond in the rough, and Drakensang Online certainly shines in comparison to other games you typically play on Chrome, Firefox, or even (*shudders*) Explorer.

Timothy Michael Wynn has scored music in the video game industry since 2005. He has worked on known game franchises like Command & Conquer, Warhawk and Red Faction. You might have heard his work on CW’s Supernatural. His best work was in Warhawk as gave its vibrant atmosphere that suit it’s military theme. It’s Wynn’s behind the scenes work that helped make the game stand out from the rest, but do fans notice? Do people look at soundtracks as a whole or as background noise?
