Total War games were alright.

I have to admit I didn't mind the ANNO series. Anno 1701 for naval war and cannons etc, though more of a RTS it was rather fun. I am worried there is a futuristic ANNO 2070 that has just been released, I'm tempted but I only ever really played the original in multiplayer and am thinking just to continue with Civ V until Diablo 3 is released.

None of them compare to Civ for depth

Sequel out this year.

The new game looks like it could be good. The last four have been pretty rubbish though so my hopes aren't high.

Shattered Memories was pretty fun, but Homecoming and The Room were totally gash. Downpour looks interesting, especially the water theme, but I'm not getting my hopes up either. After all, Korn are involved.

Sweet. I'm not sure which quest line they completed in 20 hours - then again, I'm not really sure what the "main" quest is, although I guess it's the dragonborn stuff

The dragonborn stuff, flying on a dragon, going into the afterlife, fighting some boss dragon thing, saving...something...Elder Scrolls' main questlines are always pretty average. The only real reason to continue the storyline in Skyrim is for the few helpful shouts you get.

I'm interested more in what the DLC will be about. Surely there'll be something to do with the tensions between Skyrim and the Empire

I'm hoping for there to be something involving the aftermath of the civil war, but I guess that'd be difficult to implement as it's a completely optional sidequest.

I'm guessing the DLC will be completely inconsequential side stuff, same as with Fallout and Oblivion

An image reportedly from Assassin's Creed III has leaked.

The image allegedly comes from Best Buy's internal employee news and was sent to Kotaku by an employee.

Would have preferred they placed it during the French Revolution but I guess they milk Europe for all it's worth by now.

Hopefully they manage to make the next Assassins Creed a little less rinse and repeat than Brotherhood was (that's the only one I played. I didn't bother buying Revelations).

Hopefully the main character is a little less of an annoying tool like Ezio.

I haven't played any AC games since, due soley to how annoying it was to be that guy.

Incidentally, I finished the main story line on Skyrim the other day.

It is pretty much a non-event and there isn't some great conclusion. It really is the sort of game that has almost endless content that you just play until you get bored and then stop.

i think im approaching that point, although, after having spent the whole game in heavy armor, i crafted myself a set of dragon light armor, and im going to try to grind up my levels by playing in light armor for a while.

mass effect on friday. for once, hoping it doesnt break street date, cos ive got some skyrim stuff to wrap up first...

Did anyone play it on PC? Is it worth preordering for the soundtrack? I do love me an epic RPG game soundtrack.

I'm pretty sure I got a copy of the soundtrack with my PC version.

I think it was pretty good from memory.

I'm happy to post you my copy of the soundtrack if you like. I'll never use it.
