When it comes to sandbox games, size counts. Much like the defining talent of a male porn star, a map with sizeable girth is what folks are after these days. And Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain aims to please with a world that is plenty big. So just how big is Hideo Kojima’s version of Afghanistan? About this big. You can’t see it, but I’m stretching my arms right now.
Every time I hear something new about Assassin’s Creed Unity, I become just that little bit more excited. Odd, because when it was first announced I was filled with little more than apathy. We’ve known for a while that the playable map for the next game would be huge, but we had no idea just how huge it would be. According to a purportedly leaked image, Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Paris is nearly as big as the real thing.
Size doesn’t matter? Well then you obviously don’t work in gaming where size most certainly does matter, much like an audition on the set of a porn film. The Witcher 3 is one such game which is rather well hung in the environment department, with a map that will put the previous games to shame. It’s so big, that the map comes pre-loaded with “That’s what she said” jokes already.
So I’ve finished GTA V and still think Darryn’s 9/10 for the single player side is low. The game is epic and in depth and I’m a total fanboy about it but even though I’ve finished the game I still only have 2 pieces of the spaceship and 1 of the note.
I loved Arkham City, the last Batman game, which should be no surprise when you realise that I’m wearing a Batman thong right now that promotes comfort and manoeuvrability. Arkham Origins however, is going to have a wider playground with which to work out your parenting issues. A much, much wider arena filled with superstitious criminals and bounty hunters that after your cowl.
According to a report on stickskills Rockstar Games have slowly been revealing pieces of the GTA V map of Los Santos over the past while. And an anonymous internet citizen has pieced them all together to bring us the first full map for Grand Theft Auto V.
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.

[Update 3: No PC codes left... if you haven't registered for a PC code yet you are out of luck, still a few Xbox 360 codes to go] [UPDATE 2: There are only 14 PC codes left and 52 Xbox 360 codes, after that they are gone forever] [UPDATE: Entries closed on the 1st of May but we have convinced Ubisoft to give us some extra codes to try and ensure that everyone who wants a code gets one. These are now limited and there is no guarantee you will get a code if you register now. I will turn off the registration when the codes are out but remember there is no guarantee anymore] So how awesome is this?

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.
This entire story with the Gears of War 2 Map Packs in South Africa have been a bit of a complete bummer for all of us. While we can assure you that we are still hard at work with our mission to try and get map codes to all South Africans, regardless of the odds, something very interesting (and not good) has arisen.
While a lot of us are still hurting from the sting of not receiving the map pack codes in South Africa, a few images have popped up on Flickr that show someone playing Gears of War 2 on a never-before-seen multiplayer map. The new map looks to be some sort of take on the whole sunken-city idea and could be one of many that are already in the works as DLC. Once again, there is no way to tell if us South Africans will even have any access to them, so maybe we shouldn't get our hopes up. Pics after the jump. [Thanks to Poddle for the tip]
