By Mark

Another huge bonus this game has going for it is the fact that it is going to be a free to play title on both Xbox Live Arcade and PC this fall. Gameplay after the break!

Skyrim: Less But Bigger DLC?

By Mark

Bethesda's DLC planning and releasing has always been a bit haywire and with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim the company is planning to rectify this by releasing less packages but more substantial ones instead. 

In an interview by AusGamers, game director Todd Howard stated:
"We would like to do DLC; we don't have any specific plans yet, but they've been really successful and we like making them," "So right now I can say that we'd like to do less DLC but bigger ones - you know, more substantial."

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta Video - 11 Minutes

By Mark

Itching to see some footage of the multiplayer side of things from Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception? Now you can, eleven minutes in fact. It's all based on someone playing as Sully and located on the 'Airstrip' map.

It's interesting to see how cinematic Naughty Dog seem to have made the experience, at least on this map shown as you can see from the start of the round; players are jeep hopping around alongside a plane on a runway, it's different to say the least. Check out the video after the jump.
