What kind of Game is it?

Saints Row: The Third is an a massive over-the-top open world crazy kind of game. No longer a Grand Theft Auto knockoff, Saints Row has found its own, offensive yet extremely hilarious voice and now includes activities like trafficking, sky diving, vehicle theft, and tons more. Not only will you never get bored playing this one, but that evil smile on your face won't be going anywhere anytime soon either. Plus, you can play it either solo or with a friend.

Who Developed it?

American based developer Volition, Inc. is responsible for this cleverly crass title. Their design strategy this time around was to make everything over-the-top in order to differentiate themselves from other open world games. With The Third, Volition rebooted the franchise, adding in new technology, activities, dildo bats, and just about everything else in order to create a game and continue a franchise that their fanbase would love.

Skyrim

Undoubtedly one of the most exciting moments in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is when that music kicks up, guards prepare for battle and you see the shadow of a Dragon on the ground. Regardless of your level, fighting a Dragon is no laughing matter. So to help you out, I've put together a little primer on how to not train, but kill a Dragon.

Preparation

Whether you're going out hunting a known Dragon, or just expect to see one in the country side soon, the most important part of Dragon combat is preparation. You need to maximize your encumbrance points as much as possible. If you're carrying around a bunch of armor and weapons to sell, fights are going to be a more complicated affair. I suggest unloading all your excess armor and weapons at city shops every chance you get. While you're there, take the time to hit up the blacksmith to make sure you have your armor and weapons upgraded. Smelt your ore if you have any, and go to town on the forge.

Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is out today, and it's bound to be one of the biggest games of the year. Before you hop in and make a character in The Elder Scrolls 5 just like your one in Oblivion, take a minute to look over our Skyrim starter guide to familiarize yourself with the changes they've made to make sure your character/class combination will be the best possible.

Starting Your Adventure

Your first major decision in Skyrim is of course the creation of your character. In Oblivion, you could create a more balanced, super-powered character. Not so in Skyrim, so the choices you make here are important. Once you've gained free access to the world, before you just wander off into the mountains, take a few minutes to plan ahead what kind of character you want to play. With the revamped leveling system, Skyrim is a lot more structured towards building your character into a more traditional archetype. There's still room to branch out and make a balanced character, but you'll probably miss out on the higher level perks for some skills. Since the leveling slows way down past 50, take the time to plan out at least your first 10-20 levels.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Smuggler Guide -- Hokey Religions And Ancient Weapons Are No Match For A Good Class Guide At Your Side, Kid

Star Wars: The Old Republic
has plenty of classes up its sleeve, but with our SW: TOR Smuggler guide you'll be tumbling, dodging, and pulling some fancy blaster moves all the way across the galaxy in no time. But if stylish fighting and fast talking aren't your thing, be sure to check out our other guides on the Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, and Trooper to find a class that fits your style.

You Should Play A Smuggler If: If Han Solo makes his charming way into your dreams every night as the handsome rogue with a heart of gold – though he'd never admit it! – then the Smuggler is the Old Republic class for you. If you're afraid of getting caught up in a hack 'n' slash grind with the Jedi class and Trooper lacks that certain...something, then the Smuggler is calling for you to pick up those blasters.

The Smuggler is a DPS and debuff machine, as well as a viable healer, and her slightly skewed attitudes toward right and wrong make her analogous to a World of Warcraft Rogue. However, this class plays unlike anything I've played in an MMO, and is probably one of the most complex classes in The Old Republic.

Background: The Smuggler is not exactly a team player. At least not at first. Sure, she has contacts and deals across systems, planets, species... but a beacon of friendliness and group hugs she is not. Alliances are fine; friendship is rare, and in this business, dangerous. You'll be getting a lot more up close and personal as a Smuggler to the scum and villainy of the galaxy, often working the angles to get what you want while leaving those unfortunate enough to be in your way settled nicely into the dust.

The Smuggler is a dextrous little combatant, rolling across the battlefield to take cover and firing at enemies from a distance. She's not very hardy, so she won't be one to stand in the middle of a fight with her hide clearly exposed. Her wisecracks and eagerness to stride headlong into the proverbial asteroid field belie her true nature as an intelligent tactician. Keep up her mental stats while focusing on dexterity to keep her smuggling days bright and sunny.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Trooper Guide: They'll Do Their Job Well, I Guarantee That

Star Wars: The Old Republic has plenty of classes up its sleeve, and the Republic Trooper is one of the most explosive and intimidating in the game, even when it marches up against an entire swarm of the iconic Jedi. If you want to be a lean mean fighting machine Trooper in SW:TOR, by all means, forge forward with this levels 1-10 guide!

You Should Play A Trooper If: If you want to fight for galactic peace on the side of the Republic, but don't want to be a Jedi, or if you want to wield turret guns the size of your body. Or if you want to stomp the yard (yeah, I went there) with armor so thick it would make a Sandcrawler blush (and that's not even physically possible) then the Republic Trooper is for you.

The Trooper is a hard-hitting, damage-absorbing death machine, capable of acting as both a ranged DPS support and a tank. He's a disciplined, tough fighter who doesn't back down. Ever.

Background: Since the Republic's army is comprised mostly of Troopers, you might get the idea that these guys are pretty standard cannon-fodder, unable to stand up to the might and awe-inspiring feats of a Jedi or Sith. Well, you'd be dead wrong chum, and a Trooper will happily stick a grenade in your face while you're too busy looking down on him to notice.

The Republic trains their troops well; loyal, hardy, and if need be, surprisingly ruthless. Jedi Code compels the Knights and Consulars of the Order to spare a fallen foe. The Trooper has no such reluctance. He will fight until the bitter end, a master of the battlefield and tactics that allow allies to overtake and overrun the pitiful forces that stand before him. As a living beacon of the Republic and the first to run into a fight, the Trooper's most important stats will be those that boost endurance and strength.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Jedi Consular Guide: The Force Is Strong With This Guide

This Star Wars: The Old Republic Jedi Consular class guide, for levels 1-10, is here to guide and inform you on what it means to be a Force-wielding Jedi Consular in The Old Republic. If you're looking at your pre-order of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and you're thinking to yourself, “Jedi Knights, Bounty Hunters, Sith Inquisitors, oh my! How will I ever choose which to play?” Well good friends, that's what we're here for. But, if you're already dead set on being a Jedi Knight, then be sure to check out our Star Wars: The Old Republic Jedi Knight guide.

You Should Play A Jedi Consular If:
The Jedi Knight is a blunt instrument. A weapon. If you'd rather be exploring the infinite mysteries of the Force, educating yourself on all manner of Force manipulation, unlocking ancient secrets on forgotten worlds and then using that to either beat the snot out of your enemies as a long-range DPS class in SWTOR or to heal and buff as a support class, the Jedi Consular is for you. If you like your Jedi to be a little more Qui-Gon or Yoda and a little less Luke, this is your class.

Background: Scholar and tactician, educator and diplomat; these are just a few of the many hats a Jedi Consular will wear in his life. As one who swims in and drinks deep of the Force, the Jedi Consular is behind the scenes of virtually every decision made by the Jedi Council. They are wise beyond measure and are often called in to settle disputes when hope of peace is still within reach.

Don't let their calm demeanor and intelligence fool you though. The Consulars are valiant warriors, easily one of the most powerful classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic. They can crush their enemies to dust with a thought, turn foe to friend, or rally their allies in a way no one else can. Though the Consular wields a lightsaber like the Knight, his attacks with it are of an extremely basic variety. Hence, the most important stats for a Consular will be those which boost their ability to maintain and regenerate Focus.

Star Wars: The Old Republic Jedi Knight Guide: An Elegant Guide For A More Civilized Age

This Star Wars: The Old Republic Jedi Knight class guide, for levels 1-10, is here to guide and inform you on what it means to be a Jedi Knight in The Old Republic. If you're looking at your pre-order of Star Wars: The Old Republic, and you're thinking to yourself, “Jedi Knights, Bounty Hunters, Sith Inquisitors, oh my! How will I ever choose which to play?” Well good friends, that's what we're here for.

You Should Play A Jedi Knight If: You want to be first in line on the battlefield, charging through enemy territory and picking fights. The Jedi Knight can break off into the Sentinel or Guardian Avanced Classes (we'll talk more about these later), which will outfit her with DPS or tank talent trees, respectively. In either case, you'll be swinging lightsabers and cutting down foes up close and personal, just like Mace Windu and Obi-wan Kenobi.

Background: Jedi Knights are the idol defenders of the Republic; the valiant knights of old, noble and upstanding, though they have been in hiding since the Sith invasion and now train on the ancient homeworld of Tython. They fight fueled by the Light Side of the Force, with acrobatic maneuvers and superhuman ability. The Jedi Knight often prefers to let her swords do the talking, especially when compared to her mystical counterpart, the Jedi Consular.

This means that the Jedi Knight relies heavily upon her lightsaber, leaping – often literally – to the front of battle. For levels 1-10, the Knight has no ranged attack to speak of, and is not spec'd for blasters. That's why they receive, instead a boost to health, above average DPS, and the ability to wear medium-class armor.

Jedi Knights fear no enemy, so they aren't afraid to charge in alone against a group of three, sometimes four, five, or even six foes. They are a simple yet refined group of warriors, without much pomp and circumstance surrounding their battles. Instead, a Jedi Knight will often leap into battle, building up Focus with basic attacks until she can finish an enemy off with a more powerful cut.

What kind of Game is it?

Batman: Arkham City is a follow up to 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum developed by Rocksteady Studios.

Who Developed it?

With the widespread acclaim Arkham City has been garnering, it's a pretty impressive offering for only their third attempt.

We've created this League of Legends Dominion guide to get you up to speed on LoL's newest game mode. If you're not familiar with Dominion yet, it's an entirely new, and entirely free, fast-paced experience that has exploded in to the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) genre.

League of Legends: Dominion Gameplay Teaser Trailer »


Overview: Generally in MOBA games like Dota 2, League of Legends, or Heroes of Newerth, your goal is to destroy the opponent's base. But in Dominion, your goal is to capture and defend up to five points around a very small map called The Crystal Scar. Champions start Dominion at level 3 with 1,375 gold and gain experience and gold at a much faster rate than in the standard League of Legends game on Summoner's Rift.

Each team starts with 500 points, and whichever team holds the least amount of areas loses their points. For example, if Team A has three areas and Team B has two areas, Team B will start losing points. If Team A has four areas and Team B has one area, Team B will lose points at a faster rate. If both Team A and Team B have equal points captured then neither team will lose points. The team that loses all of their points first loses.

Need a guide to the body-shifting, San Francisco street racing that is Ubisoft's newest driving game? Driver: San Francisco came out recently and, in case you hadn't heard, it's actually really good. Maybe not perfect, but a thoroughly entertaining arcade racing game made even better by the addition of the "Shifting" mechanic.

Early on in the game's story, protagonist John Tanner is left in a coma after being in a car wreck. He doesn't realize it, however, instead continuing on in a dream-state in which he explores the city of San Francisco as a disembodied presence, inhabiting the driver of any vehicle he spies using a process known in the game as Shifting. In essence, Driver: San Francisco turns the racing genre on its head by doing away with the idea that you're stuck in one car for the duration of a given challenge.

The seamlessness of the Shifting mechanic helps in that regard, and it even makes its way into the game's content-packed multiplayer mode. One of the runaway hits at this year's E3, the various online play games in Driver: San Francisco can all be generally referred to with one word: fun. There's a lot going on there too, with weapons, vehicle unlocks and a full-blown progression system. That's why we've put together this little guide, to acquaint you with Driver's multiplayer so you won't crash and burn immediately after firing it up for the first time.

There are three well hidden goal posts in Rage and in order to unlock the "It's Good" achievement/trophy you need to score in three field goals.

Field Goals Location
