    I don't really play Skyrim, but if any game gives me the ability to be a major BOSS riding around on a dragon and slaughtering people with fire breath, count me in. There's a How To Train Your Dragon joke to be made here, but I'll let it pass. Dragonborn is out December 4 for 1600 Microsoft Points ($20) via Xbox Live...

  • Did Skyrim Teach Grandma To Cuss Like a Sailor [VIDEO]?

    Watching this kid's grandma play The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is like watching a bunch of my high friends play - only the drugs she's on are prescription... and I don't have female friends. Who taught her hold the controller that way? Arthritis? You gotta keep your middle fingers on the trigger so that your index fingers can be free to sit on the bumpers. Kids, it's also important to note the long-term effects that Mountain Dew can have on your teeth.

  • Join the Mutant War with X-Men Destiny [REVIEW]

    Not too long ago COED received an invite to check out a preview of the new X-Men Destiny game. Being a huge comic book nerd, I jumped at the chance to go check out the game and the next direction X-Men video games were headed. Unlike previous X-Men games, you don't play as the classic X-Men characters. I know, I know, that sounds like it is a horrible idea. Why would you want a game where you don't get the chance to slice up bad guys with Wolverine or melt face with Cyclops? I'll tell you why and a lot more in the review after the jump!

  • 7 Video Games For Your Non-gamer Girlfriend

    It can be difficult for a gamer to date a girl who has zero interest in video games. Seen from the outside, video games are a silly way of killing time that some people take way too seriously, the same way you might feel about scrapbooking, cats, or jogging. So, when she hits you with the inevitable “I don’t get it” it’s natural to try and persuade her by getting her to play with you. Here are some suggested titles to keep your significant other from rage-quitting your foray into the world of gaming. Check out our list after the jump.

    t's been nearly two years since the release of the highly acclaimed, fan-favorite Ghosbusters: The Video Game, which helped to temporarily sate the fans' hunger for a third Ghostbusters movie.

At last, the wait is over, but Sanctum of Slime is a complete departure from its predecessor in terms of gameplay and the overall story. See our full preview after the jump!

  • Make Friends by Shooting Them in the Face

    Pity poor Master Chief, the hero of the Halo games. While M.C. is truly a one-man army, saving the universe many times over, we can’t help but think that, deep down, all he really wants is a friend. Or a puppy. And even worse for the big guy, he’s not even in Halo: Reach, the hotly anticipated Xbox 360 game which is shaping up to be THE title of the year and features Master Chief sitting on the sidelines for the first time.
