Telling Tales: Skyrim and Dark Souls

Zob

I really don't understand how these two types of game can be compared at all. They are chalk and cheese as far as game mechanics go. The link, as far I see, between them is the fantasy setting.

The Elder Scrolls series have been around since 1994 and drew heavily from an old pc/atari st/amiga game called Legends of Valour. Its raison d'etre is having a full and extraordinarily detailed world where the player can roleplay if they want i.e. be like an honourable knight, a mushroom eating hermit that lives in the forests or a sadistic sorcerer that owns a tower overlooking their plundered land. The games often don't make sense to completionists who need to be able to do everything that the game world offers. ES games are just as much about what you don't get to see/read/fight/complete... it's that vastness that makes them feel like a world to carve your own adventure in. It's the fact you don't have time to do absolutely everything that makes each story different.

Just like Tom Bombadil's poems in the Lord of the Rings books, there's a lot of stuff that doesn't sit concisely in the narrative, but they're there to flesh out the world and give a setting and place.

Dark Souls has just a different way of telling the story. It's pretty awesome that both types of game are available to enjoy.

You can bet your bottom dollar that if Bethesda took away all the books, lore and huge amounts of dialogue available they'd cause an uproar in their fanbase... there's absolutely nothing else on the market that could satisfy that kind of gaming appetite.

Edited for spelling...

I'm off to NYC in just over a week, but looking at google maps, Rochester is just under 350 miles away... a bit too far really.

It's funny, it's clever, it's got a lot to say about why Pac-Man's good and Double Dragon isn't

...scratching that off my list then.

Viva Billy and Jimmy.

Yes, the demo was quite average at best. I loved Max Payne but this looked a bit crumbly and the framerate was a little stuttery on 360. Each character looked like they had terrible syphillis.

Missile Command

Talking of sequels... was anyone as lucky as I was in owning the Atari Jaguar version of missile command?

I mean, talking about 64 bit! That used virtually all 64 of them bits. It was also destined to be used with the never released VR helmet. I think the 'V' in 'VR' stood for vomit or something.

The lack of Comic Sans on the PS3 version provides 200% improvement.

However 200% of 0 is still 0.

Gears of War for PC?

For the type of graphics card you'd need to run this smoothly, you'd probably be better off forking out for a 360. My PC was way more powerful than an Xbox when Halo came out, but it chugged terribly.

Nice review, Eruantien. Well written and informative in ways that stop it from being redundant in light of all the other reviews on the internet.

Haha! The grammatically incorrect Sean Paul.
