The Skyrim game world itself will be roughly the same size as that in Oblivion, and players will still have the ability to fast-travel between previously visited locations and although there is still no official conformation or denial of the opportunity to own and ride horses, the game's director Todd Howard revealed that there will be a carriage-based transport system that the player can utilise to travel to some major locations that they have yet to visit.
Some of you might remember that at the beginning of the year I predicted that L.A. Noire could well become game of 2011, and some people also claim I'm Rockstar Games biased as I have consistently given GTA, Red Dead & Beaterator full marks. Well if they didn't keep making the best games on the market then my rating of them might change, but that time is most certainly not now as I have finally got my hands on L.A. Noire and it is perfect. Again I reiterate, “Front Runner for Game Of The Year 2011”. You can quote me on that.
Bethesda Softworks are taking no prisoners this year and have a lot of Major titles and DLC coming your way in 2011 starting with 'Brink'.
This is a game I first got to have a play with last year at a few of the Game expo's we attended and it was looking rather special back then. As you may remember my only concern was it may be just a little complicated for your average gamer and the recent succesion of instruction videos for Brink over the month before release says that my fears were not unfounded.
