American fast food chain 'Sonic' (no relation to the blue spiky thing) has run one of the best video game-related adverts ever. It's a trip to the fast food diner... in the style of OutRun. Get ready for a massive geek-out...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was the big winner at last night's Interactive Achievement Awards (IAAs) in Las Vegas, scoring a total of five top honors including the coveted Game of the Year title.
