Game Overdose: Video Game Awards (w/ Comments)

Sunday, 11 December, 2011 Leave a comment

Hi all! God it feels like forever since I did one of these…
I apologise for the extreme levels of silence. A near-full-time job, coursework deadlines (of which I still have one in for… tomorrow, procrastination ahoy!) and general life stuff has kept me away the last few weeks, though I hope to remedy that come the new year!

Now, as you may or may not be aware, Spike.Tv does a yearly Video Game Awards, celebrating the best games in various fields at various times. It’s probably about as close as you’re going to get to seeing Video Game oscars. I figured seeing as it (hopefully) wouldn’t take too much time I’d list them all and make comments. These aren’t really meant to be serious, I’m going to try to entertain as much as inform, but it should be a touch interesting…

Ah, welcome, children of the night, into a world of mystery and intrigue. Of fantastic powers and eldritch secrets, and of that sketchy line between faith, fantasy and reality. And also of vampires, or nearly any other “horror” creature being crowbarred into a game series.

Apologies for the lateness of this everyone, life got in the way and I got a little bit discouraged by being messed around a bit, but I’m back to finish off what I started, an overall comparison between Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas’s DLC.

Game Overdose: Fallout 3 vs. Fallout: New Vegas DLC face-off.

Given the obnoxiously hot weather out there, the fact that I’m still poor (soon to be addressed, hopefully!) and the fact that the reportedly final DLC came out recently, I’ve decided to do a Fallout 3 vs Fallout: New Vegas comparison.

This week is spoiler-tastic. Try to stay away from this article unless you’ve played Infamous, Deus Ex: Human Revolution (and most of the deus ex series) to conclusion, or if you don’t care about having their plots spoiled! I’m just going to put across how I’d continue their plots if it was up to me, and some of the explanation as to how.
