This time, I am suggesting The Elder Scrolls: Oblivon: Game Of The Year Edition. This game is an RPG set in an alternate world where an amulet is a thing of power, getting stabbed is as common as getting mugged, and trolls are as common as nowadays. Now, the only fair way to describe Oblivion is to say it’s big. Really big. To say the least, to walk from one side of the map to the other, you will spend around 2 hours of your time. Now as it is big, it is safe to say it’ll have a lot of content. This is an understandment. There are 6 main questlines. 6. The shortest will take 4 hours, the longest will take 30. Add in side quests, spelunking, and DLC (which has 2 main pieces of content, one taking 10 hours, the other taking around 40), it’s safe to say this game will keep you occupied for a while. If you were to buy this new, it’s $25. However, if you were to buy used, you can get it for $15. I fully recomend this game. This is one of my favorite games, and might just be #1. If you want to buy it, which I highly recomend, click on the link I will provide below.

Deal of the Week #1

Posted: 09/10/2011 in Uncategorized

A feature I will be doing is the deal of the week. These games will usually be under $20, and will most likely have been released a few years ago. In each game deal, I will give a few reasons why it’s a deal, who would enjoy it, and I will include a link to Amazon, where you can pick up the game. For my first game deal, I will suggest the Orange Box. The Orange Box, released in October of 2007, is a collection of three games; Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal. Now, if you’ve never heard of this, you may be thinking that three games in one package is odd, that they might be plainly bad, blank games. You’d be wrong. Starting with Half Life, anybody who likes the idea of grav guns, this is a game for you. Its gameplay is very unique, and its combat system is one that is still marveled at. Secondly, Team Fortress 2. This game is somewhat simmilar to Quake. It has class-based combat, which most people are farmiliar. However, the thing that is the most unique about this game is… the HATS!! I’m being completely serious. This game has more hats than a six-year-old’s Polly Pocket collection. If there’s a hat, it’s in this game. Of course, there is other things that stand out about this game, but the crown jewel is the hats. Finally, Portal. If you haven’t played this game, do. This is one of the most unique games of all time, and is on my top 5 games. It’s gameplay is unlike any other game. Ever. The game is gripping, quite humorous, and makes you feel like you’re in the year 2096 (not the actual year). The price of the game new is $19.99 on Amazon, and about half that if you buy used.

Hello. This is an information blog on video game news. If you don’t know this, this is a one-man show, if only temporarily. I am also currently unable to do any reviews, as I am unable to rent or buy games close to release date. However, I will be posting news and, if I am able, the occasional feature. If anyone wants something in particular, please, email me at islandgamer@hotmail.com.
