Much like the movie Highlander, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is the best thing ever, when it comes to video games. Naysayers be damned, as Treyarch managed to knock out a damn fine game in the annual franchise that was fun, exciting and slick in the presentation department. As usual, the COD experience is one that has a leaning towards multiplayer and zombies once the end credits roll. And much like with previous games, there’s extra content on the way to keep players satisfied until the next game in the series arrives. Revolution, is the first of four such packs.
So how many hours of your precious life have you poured into Skyrim? Ten? Twenty? Fifty? The game is just so addictive, that it even scored a 10/10 in the review. And no matter how many hours you’ve put in, chances are good that you’ve barely even touched the main quest.
There’s just too much to do, and top of the list has to be all those books laying around bandit fortresses and nestled in the arms of a Draugar warrior. But for those of you who want to take your Skyrim experience that little bit further, here’s a few treats for you.
With 2011 almost as finished as my emergency bottle of Jack Daniels journalistic inspiration, its time to look towards 2012, and the horizon seems bright indeed. We’ve got trilogy-enders, new trilogy-starters and some interesting new reboots and new ideas on the way, but one game that has everyone excited, has to be GTA V.
Details surrounding the upcoming return to the roots of San Andreas are spotty at best, but now it seems that we might just have an idea of when it will release, as well as a map showing off the future sandbox.
Our special holiday destination features 9 cities, 7 smaller towns, numerous mountain ranges and the ever popular Sea of Ghosts.
Tourists to this province can expect to be slaughtered, eaten, chased or abused and if you somehow survive the inhabitants then the dragons are sure to roast you alive while you try escape between cities.

For the last couple of days Naughty Dog have been teasing us with tweets about something awesome coming, well itâ€™s finally been revealed and we can confirm that it is indeed pretty awesome.
On the 27th of November, hey thatâ€™s my wifeâ€™s birthdayâ€¦ sh*tâ€¦, um where was I? Oh yeah on the 27th of November at 10AM Pacific Standard Time they will unleash a new free update for Uncharted 2 which will bring with it a brand new multiplayer map entitled â€œThe Fortâ€.
Earlier this week we posted that COD4 developers, Infinity Ward, had slashed the price of their COD4 map pack, well Treyarch werenâ€™t going to take that lying down and have now come out and are giving away a free map for Call of Duty: World at War.
Granted itâ€™s just a daytime version of the Makin map so all they have done is turn the lights up but itâ€™s free, okay maybe that is not entirely true since they have moved some paths and cover but still, itâ€™s not an entire pack.

[ Update no.3: We have received another Reply from Epic. It seems that spamming them will not do any good because MS generates the codes. It's still 5am in Redmond, so we will have to wait a little to get some answers but it seems like answers is what we will be getting.
Hooray for not being ignored! ]
[ Update no.2 : Mike Capps from Epic has replied! He say's the following:
"Hi nick. News to me, let me check!"
There may be hope yet! ]
[ Update: I have just emailed Mike Capps, the president of Epic Games to see if there is any sort of arrangement that can be made for South African gamers. Hopefully we will have a response soon with regards to the codes. ]
I really hope that I get proven wrong on this one because if I don't, it will be a pretty sad piece of news for us South Africans.
As you all know, a few South Africans have been able to get their hands on copies of Gears of War 2 a few days early. I got the chance to speak to someone who has already gotten a copy and has played a sneaky multiplayer session with a few other of the lucky folks who got it early as well.
The problem is that none of them could find the "Flashback Map Pack" code in their Gears of War 2 boxes.
Say it ain't so. More after the jump.
