Saints Row trades logic for creativity, and the payoff is fun!

Blargarg | July 19, 2012 | Review of Saints Row: The Third dns

A lot of people critisize this game for being way too crazy compared to its predecessor, and I will agree I personally preferred the more realistic approach of Saints Row 2, but this game is certainly a blast to play regardless. You will gain access to crazy abilities and fight off some crazy bad guys and crazy things will just happen. Word of warning - maybe lay off on some of the upgrades, because once you have them all the game becomes far less challenging and less fun because of it. Or just do whatever you want.

More casual-orientated RPG that is PERFECT for co-op

Blargarg | July 19, 2012 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

Doesn't have quite the depth of Skyrim, but don't let that sway you - where Skyrim was at times a chore, this game is always fun. The gameplay -- you know, the thing that matters, is superb, with a system that will benefit the more hardcore gamers while at the same time accomodating the more casual. Item looting is very streamlined - you have a couple of "hot-spots" on a fairly linear map which you can click on and collect items from. You can then sell or use these items. And you will soon discover it is wise to collect and sell as much as possible to be able to afford all the good stuff!

It's a bit unorthodox that the game limits the co-op at 3 players, but if you can manage to get three to play with you it is an insane blast. You will rely on one another's unique abilities and will really need to co-operate to succeed. I might just not be very good at this game, but I found it quite a challenge even with a mate. But challenge is a good thing!

My advice? If you like LOTR, Get it! If you like Action RPG, Get it! You won't regret!

Can't ask for more out of a video game.

Blargarg | July 19, 2012 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (NA)

Skyrim is that game that you'll play every second of your spare time for as long as life will let you. If you have an inclination toward fantasy themes in general, you will like (probably love) Skyrim. It is most rewarding to gamers with an imagination; though there are an abundance of quests and items to collect, the real fun comes in immersing yourself into the role of your character, and defining the character through the numerous choices you make.
