REVIEWS Tearaway Unfolded Review
Does the PS4 version offer worthwhile new features or are they paper thin?

Mario Maker Review
Nintendo puts Mario's fate in the hands of players in Super Mario Maker, and the result is one of the best games of the year.

PREVIEWS Hob Preview
If I had to describe Hob in a simple title it would be "Darksiders Jr." The title from Runic developers, whose prior games are the Torchlight series, were nervous about delivering a game that is so far from their comfort zone.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

This is one of my favorite games that's ever been created. What is so great about this game (I'm talking about the PC version, not the console version seeing as I don't own a console and I don't even like consoles.) is that you can download so many mods for it, and use them effectively (OOO mod comes to mind). There are hundreds of mods out there for this game, especially at tesnexus.com. There are mods that change the beginning's tutorial (Alternate Start), and also mods that change the graphics for trees, rocks, grass, NPC's, sound, weather, voices, lighting, your own character and the ground.

In many instances, Oblivion is better than Morrowind when it comes to gameplay. The only part that disappointed me in Oblivion was the leveling system. They changed it from Morrowind. In Morrowind, you had 3 categories: Major, Minor and Misc. In Oblivion, you only had Major and the other category I believe was called Misc, and only Major stats leveled up your character. In Morrowind, Major and Minor both leveled your character, Minor just slightly slower than Major. Everything else, the game didn't disappoint.

In both Oblivion and Morrowind, you could either become good or evil, which did not really change the main quest any. You could gain either Famous points, or Infamous points in the game. You can rob, steal, kill, assassinate, pick locks, buy houses, and complete quests. You can do the same in Morrowind.

I'm scoring the game a solid A
