IMHO: Getting the Most Out of Skyrim

Remember that classic “Skyrim” game from way back in the Fall of 2011?  It was quite a hit back in its day, and with so much to do in a massive game, it was difficult to orient the direction of the main hero.  Well, we here at GameTaffy pulled out our copies from their dust laden tombs for a replay and suggestions for our happy readers on how to get the most out of Skyrim.


Know Where You Want to Go

Diversity will be key on a second play-through of Skyrim; it would be boring to do the same thing twice.  Get out of a comfort zone and shoot for being a thief or dark mage this time around instead of a warrior.  It is a good idea to pick a new direction and focus the hero’s attributes based on that selection.  The best way to focus a hero in Skyrim is to decide on an end result and let that guide his direction.

EA has just announced release of a Mass Effect IP for the iOS.  The game sends players on a rescue mission to release Cerberus bound captives from the shady organization’s clutches.  This ties into a reward system that will actually affect players’ games in the console release of Mass Effect 3.  EA states, “Every completed rescue and intelligence discovery in Infiltrator will increase a player’s Galactic Readiness rating directly through the ‘Galaxy at War’ system in Mass Effect 3.”  The Galaxy at War system has to do with the game’s multiplayer system.

The Darkness II Demo Live on Xbox 360

Digital Extremes has got some nifty surprises in store for The Darkness II, and the demo is live now on Xbox 360 exclusively for one week.

Previews of the sequel to The Darkness reveal an interesting game tweak: quad wielding.  Jackie Estacado, the star of the dark shooter is possessed by a demonic force that gives him unrivaled badassery.  Part of that possession includes four demonic arms that can lift, attack, and unleash diabolical powers on Jackie’s enemies that are mapped to certain buttons on the controller.  Your fingers are in for a multitasking fiesta of awesomeness.

The shooter incorporates RPG elements as well.  With each of Jackie’s kills, enemies drop essence points that allow players to unlock new abilities such as summoning demonic minions, ground pounds, and levitation.

The story is a classic good vs. evil, light against darkness tale, and gamers will be on the business end of a dark and Hellish ride.  To add the Darkness II demo to your download queue, click here.
