REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Got a few lifetimes to kill?

Wow there is so much to Oblivion, that it is really hard to know where to start...Well here it goes:

In The Elder Scrolls IV: Obivion you take on the role of, well you. You will start off spending at least 20 min trying to get you charachter to look perfect, unless you just don't care, there is a random option for you all. This Character creation can easily consume clock time, as you can make pretty much anyone you can think of, with a little imagination, and alot of tweaking the slightest element of your medeval homeboys appearance, There are over 8 diffrent races to be, and everyone can be tricked out to look so diffrent, you could never make him again.

Once you've decided who you are you will find yourself behind bars (No not passed out with your pants pulled down bent over a dumpster) for a crime that will never be explained to you. Your mission should you choose to accept it, and you do, unless your waiting for a cell mate, is to find the Emperor's Illegitimate son, close shut the jaws of Oblivion, and save the whole Empire, all out of the goodness of your heart. No Prob right? Wrong.

Once you've escaped your smelly prison you will be droped into a world, a big one too, full of bandits, rouges,flora,and fauna. And towns, of course, and most of the people you find in these towns will need your help on tasks that they are probably just to lazy to do themselves,but money is money, no matter how you get it, it all spends the same. In Oblivion youur actions determine how people see you, get caught stealing, hey people don't like that in a hero,and how people look at you will determine how much they like you, which can determine whether they ask your help. You almost always have the option of doing the right, or the wrong thing, except for the main story.

Its very easy to get ADD when playing this game, you can play for literaly dozens of hours, and never touch the main story, screw the empire right? Your in it for the Fame and fortune.If you get bored doing quests for the mostly poor common folk, then join a guild, or two. The guilds aren't really plentiful but there is lways one for you, Thieves Guild, Fighters guild, Mages Guild, Or the Dark Brotherhood (assassin's guild) You really can do whatever you want in oblivion, dont like how that guys lookin' at ya? Kill him, but be prepared that you actions have consequences, killing a dude will net you a little satisfaction, but also a 1,020 gold fine, or a few days in the Slammer, curled up next to your shower daddy.

Not much to say in the gameplay dept. It is fun, controls are easy to learn, this game will consume a huge portion of you life if you let it. So people without self-control may want to hire someone to tell you when too eat,sleep, go to bed, or go to work/school.This game isnt for the casual gamer, its not a pick up and play, put down and maybe play again 6 months later.

Oblivion has the whole 'second life' Living world thing down, people will talk to you as they pass by, some people will even walk up and enage you in conversation for your help, not everyone you meet will be 'all there' many will be insane, or criminals, you can do whatever you want, but you should stay your course, (Good/Evil) otherwiseyou fame/infamy will pretty much stay the same, and then your still just nuetral as you where in the begining.

Oblivion is definitly the game to have for your 360 i you like RPGs.

Game on.
