With all of the high profile titles that released throughout this year, and 2011 coming to a close, it’s easy to forget that Dead Space 2 came out in January. The astounding volume of games has made it feel like ages since players stepped into the boots of Isaac Clarke, so conversations often turn to the vast nature of Skyrim, or the sheer insanity presented in Saints Row: The Third. While most of them are fantastic creations that deserve acclaim and attention, I feel it’s important to take a trip […]

It’s that time of year again, folks. Twelve months have passed. Hundreds of games have been released. But which of the cream of the crop will become the Press X or Die Game of the Year 2011? There’s only one way to find out.
After having some time to play and absorb the monolith that is Skyrim we sat down to discuss some of the finer points of the newest addition in the fantasy RPG series The Elder Scrolls. Beware, there will be spoilers.

At some point during a board meeting, in between puffs of expensive-cigar smoke, jokes at the expense of the working class, and with classical music playing in the background, some head of marketing successfully pitched the idea of using a round of video game “Beta testing” as a marketing tool.
Since we’ve all played Deus Ex Human Revolution and it was a tug of war on who’d review the game we’re doing a roundtable instead. Since this is a Roundtable instead that means isn’t so much a review as a breakdown of the game; our thoughts, experiences, etc. Beware, there will be spoilers.
