Somehow we’ve made it into a whole new decade. It’s 2020 now, and that’s problematic because I’m still struggling to remember that it’s not the early 2000’s. But anyway, with the coming of a new year means reflection on the last one. I’ve seen some people who appear quite disappointed with 2019, and while I’d certainly agree it wasn’t a vintage year there were still a lot of awesome games released. And I’m going to subject you to the horror of having to read my list of which ones I thought were the best of the best, the creme of the crop, the champions of 2019.
Another weekend has passed into the annals of history, as time marches toward its inevitable violent conclusion. And on that happy note it’s time for another Weekend Whammy! Huzzah! Buckle up meat bags, because this week I’m taking more about Control, Luigi’s Mansion, Aquaman and Decay of Logos.
Right, onto the Weekend Whammy. Hello again my friends, another week has somehow slipped by like a ninja in the night, so let’s jump into it.
The history of Remedy starts waaaaay back in the days of slow motion diving. Yes, I’m talking about the Max Payne games which I first experienced at the tender age of way too young to be playing them. But thanks to my dad play them I did, and while I didn’t understand a word of what was going on I did understand the special magic that Remedy had created. Since then the company hasn’t lost its flair for creating unique things: just look at Alan Wake and Quantum Dream. They’ve struggled to release a big hit, though. Alan Wake did okay but never well enough to get a sequel, and Quantum Dream just sort of vanished into the ether. But Control could be different. This could be the big one.
Hello my little wolfpack of awesome, how are you all doing? Another week has gone blasting past like it stole a jet, snorted some cocaine and decided to head for the Bahamas. That means it’s time for another Weekend Whammy, so let’s get right into chatting about why Control is worth keeping an eye on and WHAT THE HELL SONY AND MARVEL!?
Written by Lee Garbutt As a long-time gamer, I find it incredibly difficult to keep an open mind about the use of motion controls in gaming – After more than three decades of using various joysticks and controllers, why to anything else? As they say, “if it ain’t […]
It has long been a fight to get gaming accepted as true medium amongst it’s peers, and the goverment has never exactly been an ally; often condemening our chosen hobby as a past-time that causes violence among kids, or that it is the cause of all the wrong in the […]
It’s been discovered that Microsoft have just had a successful patent application filed that is associated with the upcoming Kinect. Would you like to read it? if so I warn you now it makes little sense: “Systems, methods and computer readable media are disclosed for gesture keyboarding. A […]
OMG! I want a pet tiger! This one game could redeem Kinect by itself, allowing players to look after there virtual animals using motion sensing, while it’s still a casual gamer friendly title it’s a good demo of the tech involved. Plus the kid is cute.
