Dawnguard DLC trailer provides further reasons to live

Wise sages of Bethesda, who bestow upon us new footage of Dawnguard, we thank thee.  We praise you for your inclusion of a crossbow, which will provide thine assassin with great ability.  We sing your name in song for the addition of mounted combat and wings which allow our (im)mortal(?) bodies glide above thine earth.

Wherein I Review Halo CE Anniversary (Fashionably Late Review)

  I knew I wanted Halo Anniversary because, well, I have every other Halo title; I like the Halo series, for all of you newcomers. I have played all titles multiple times for reasons I cannot fully explain. Wonderful controls, excellent music and atmosphere, story–sure, those are three big reasons right there, but there is […]

…Wherein I finally beat Skyrim…

I decided to bite the bullet and just end it all. I eclipsed the 100 hour mark last night and, with that, defeated Alduin in Sovngarde, thus completing the main storyline of Skyrim. It was a harrowing adventure to be sure, and there is still much achievement mining to be had. But I will say […]

Borderlands 2 coming in September

In news that makes me (and surely Wes, too) very happy, Borderlands 2 will be coming September 18. As you can see from the trailer, its graphical styling is still there, only better looking–like playing a cartoon. The best news: 4-player online co-op. Wes just peed himself somewhere…

…Wherein my childhood keeps coming back…

Saw this on Joystiq today:  WW(F) WrestleFest is making a comeback via Xbox Live (and those other ones, too). I, for one, am mostly pumped, much like the late Randy Savage was (only with less steroids in my case).  The one problem I have is the inclusion of current wrestlers, which really isn’t that big […]

Rock Band getting RickRoll’d on Valentine’s Day

Not that I mind the 80s flare being disseminated by Harmonix to the Rock Band DLC collection, I still find it hard to believe that Rick Atsley is getting the RB treatment when we, the people, are missing out on Led Zeppelin! http://www.rockband.com/blog/gold-star-my-heart-dlc Also up for Valentine’s Day: Every Rose Has Its Thorn – Poison […]

Gilded Cask 2011: Game of the Year

I finally feel like I am at a point where I can say I’ve adequately played through the majority of Skyrim and present a true idea as to its good points and bad.  As you can probably tell by the title of this post, there are far more of the good.  Skyrim represents true value […]

I’m Just a Citizen of Skyrim, but I’m So Much More

Certainly by now you’ve read a review of Skyrim, the latest Elder Scrolls iteration to grace our boring Earth (unlike the always-interesting Tamriel).  The last thing you need from me is to write yet another account of how great the game is; you know it’s great, even if you haven’t played it.  Instead I want […]

X means ’10’ to Romans (Happy Birthday, Xbox)

Ten years have come and gone since the clunkiest, heaviest, and most unexpectedly-awesome console of all time arrived on store shelves.  The Microsoft and their DirectX Box has seen many different shades of emotion from this gamer.  First there was unabashed hatred for the machine as I, at the time, was a FLAMING Nintendo fanboy.  […]

Holy crap! A new post!

Even I got bored with my fantasy football weekly updates.  To put it kindly, I’m doing pretty good in one league and borderline terrible in the other–there’s your update. Still, things are afoot at GameDrunk HQ.  I finally got Skyrim in, no thanks to Amazon or UPS.  Pre-ordered through the world’s largest online retailer with […]

One month from tomorrow…

A month and one day is all that stands between the real world of Earth and the return to the fantasy world of Tamriel.  Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released 11/11/11, and in preparation, Bethesda has been good enough to provide a few screenshots.  Initial thoughts on each pic as follows: First, the map, […]

Skyrim Gameplay Video Creates Fury Because It Isn’t 11/11/11 Yet

The fine folks at G4 interviewed Bethesda’s Todd Howard about the awe-striking Skyrim, the next chapter of The Elder Scrolls series. As you can see from watching through this 14 minutes of gameplay, your life will become null and void come November 11, 2011.  I can’t describe how excited I am for this game…

With Skyrim Looming, I’ve Been Dragged Into Oblivion

I’m sure you’ve already seen the wondrous previews of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was previewed to the lucky bastards who have successful video game websites a few weeks ago.  As a huge fan of Oblivion, I eagerly await this juggernaut to claim all free-time come November 11.  It seems, though, that Tamriel’s grasp on […]
