In this November Betheseda Softworks is going to publish another great adventure game from the game series Elder Scrolls, The Elder Scrolls V SkyRim. The game is under development by Betheseda Game Studios and like previous TES this will also be an open world role playing game. This game will hit the major consoles and pc in 11/11/11.

Like other TES game Skyrim’s game play is also an open world game. In which player can go any where and do what ever he wants. SkyRim will have 5 major cities where player can complete activities like farming, cooking, woodcutting and mining. Levels will be gained by raising skills. There will be 18 types of skill available in SkyRim. The class system from the previous series has been removed. There will be a skill tree with 280 perks which players can gain in each level. Players will be able to use dual weapons and also can create them. Sprint and Jumps will cost Stamina as usual. For bashing attacks Shields can be used. Each weapon will have its own advantage and roles. For each different weapon players will get different finishing moves. Over 80 types of spell will be available for use in close or range combat. Each spell will have its different effect as fire will damage through burning but will also ignite the environment. Arrows will deal a great damage and will cost high. Daggers will be a great weapon when it’s used in sneak attack. SkyRim will use a NPC system called Radiant Story, where Npc will interact with its environment. Npc will start conversation with player, request a favor or even challenge for dual.

The game takes place 200 years after the event of Ovlivion. After the death of its King SkyRim is now turned into a place of civil war and the Alduin has risen. He takes a form of a dragon to destroy the world and you are the last living Dovahkin who can stop him.

The game play trailers looks awesome, Environment graphics looks really amazing, the snow fall seems pretty real, the water fall gives a nice view. The battle with monster looks almost real, sneak attacks are cool and the magic attacks are looking great too.

Finally I think this game is going to be awesome and I think if you got enough cash with yourself go for it now or get ready to make some in this summer as come Fall we need to crash the party of this evil Dragon.


THOR: God of Thunder

In 1962 a super hero started his journey through a comic named Journey into Mystery. The creator of this super hero was Stan lee and he named him Thor. He was a son of Odin and Odin wanted his son to taught humility and placed him in a human body named Donald Blake. Blake was a medical student and when he became a doctor he went on a vacation in Norway. In here he witnessed an alien invasion. For saving his life he fled to a cave and discovered the mighty hammer of Thor Mjolnir. When he strikes it against a rock he transforms into a god of Thunder and defeated the aliens. After that incident Blake realizes that he is the mighty Thor the Norse God of Thunder from the Asgard. From then he lives among the human, joining forces like The Avengers to save the earth.

As a Norse God of Thunder Thor many god like powers. He can sense objects traveling faster then lighting. He can hear cries from other planets, can travel through time, can regenerate wounds of his body from the power of his hammer, he is immune to all the earthly diseases. Thor can transform in to a state called Warrior’s Madness which increases his strength and stamina ten times temporarily but when he is in this state he attacks everyone. Thor has the power to summon lightning, rain, wind and even snow with his hammer. Thor can lift an entire building with the power of wind and destroy it. Thor posses some control over the Earth as he is the son of Gaea.

That’s only the starting of Thor’s story for further stay tuned as the Thor is about to blow your consoles in this May 3, 2011. Thor God of Thunder is a game based on the up coming film Thor. This is the first standalone appearance of Thor in a videogame. The game is developed by Liquid Entertainment for the Ps3 and Xbox 360 version and Red Fly Studios for the Wii version. The game will be published under the name of Sega.

You will play as Thor and use his mighty Hammer to devastate enemies with his melee combos, hammer throw and blow them with the power of wind or destroy them with other elemental powers. You will earn Valor points by killing enemies and with valor point you will level up, acquire new powers, abilities and also weapon upgrades. Play the part of Odin’s son and be the ruler of Asgard.

As you guys already know that a movie is on the way but the game story is different as here Thor will be battling through numerous worlds of Norse mythology from the pages of the Comics. The Trailer seems good more like the battle system reminds me of DMC or GOW but you will find something new too as jump to the sky attack (that’s what I call it), ultimate power of wind and thunder attack and might be more to come in upcoming trailers. Although some gamers is already giving it a thumbs down I would like to tell you guys just wait for it and let it release. It is not that bad at all that you put it on the negative side, rather from the trailers I as a fan of Avengers really would love to play as this is the first stand alone game of Thor and will love to play his part from the comics. So In my point of view this game may rather not rock but will be a good start of Thor’s game series.


Alice: Madness Returns

After 11 years Alice will be back in action in the up coming game Alice: Madness Returns. This game is a sequel of American McGee’s Alice which was released only in PC in October 6 2000. Before further a do I would like to share some experience from American McGee’s Alice.

AMA was a third person action game which was developed by Rouge Entertainment and published under the name of EA. The game took place in the universe named Wonderland. Story of that game was like Wonderland is taken over by the Queen of Heart and Alice have to save it with a help from her companion Cheshire Cat. The graphics works were really good and it received ratings like 9.4 out of 10 from IGN, 7.3 from GameSpot, 10 from GameZone and 8 from Eurogamer.

So after 11 long year’s gamers will have the chance to play as Alice in the land called Wonderland and this time the game will hit the consoles also. Alice: Madness Returns will be released for Pc, Ps3 and Xbox 360 in June 14th, 2011. The story of the game takes place after 11 years from the first game AMA. Alice is now released from Rutledge Asylum. She is in the care of London psychiatrist but the memory of her parent’s death still haunts her. So to get away from her hallucinations and internal struggle she returns to Wonderland. But once again Wonderland has been warped and Alice has to save everyone and herself. She also has to find the real reason of her parent’s death as the haunt continues.

The Trailer looks really cool, the graphics work is awesome and movements are quite nice, flying butterflies and cards here and there, Shattering glass and the chase look stunning, battle system is nice also. Just check the trailer and you will see the real deal. This game is looking really good. I am ready for this action and will be on the spot to get it as soon as its out.
