Ross @ FG: "Ive said it a hundred times in TellTale reviews in the past but the first episode of the season is usually always its weakest, and as such the seasons tends to get stronger as they continue. Ergo, I remained optimistic for Episode 2.
Im glad I did, Giant Consequences is a far more cohesive, fun experience, even if it still isnt completely essential."
Sean @ FG: Needless to say, The Crash N.Sane Triology has been a resounding success for Activision who think that more beloved franchises from yesteryear could get the same treatment. I imagine many other publishers are looking at the sales of the N. Sane trilogy and are thinking the same thing too.
But what should be next? What other franchises as big as Crash Bandicoot deserve to be rebuilt for the modern day gamer? Well, we have a few suggestions.
The Sonic Mania Collector's Edition is simply amazing, to put it simply. The Genesis Statue plays the SEGAAAAA audio when you turn the console On (if it has batteries in it). That alone makes this worthy of having if you can get it.
Neil writes "Comparisons between Portal and ChromaGun are bound to arise. After all, the latter follows the former very closely indeed. Its a puzzler. Its got a cool looking gun. Its got humour. Its got a crazy ending. But most of all its got the character required to be a bit of a hit."
Video game developer Valve is responsible for bringing us some of the most beloved game franchises in history, Gazette gaming columnist Jake Magee writes. It's just too bad so many will end unfinished.
Bethesda has announced that a free trial for PREY will be available in a few hours. According to the press release, and starting today, the critically acclaimed game from Arkane Studios will be available as a PC trial for the first-time ever. Bethesda did not reveal how many levels will be available or for how long PC gamers will be able to play this free trial.
Carlos writes "Ah, subscriptions. Every day subscription services in the music and media industry receive new customers, all willing to pay money for a service that gives them something they want in a convenient way - whether thats through services like Xbox Live and EA Access, or others like Netflix or Amazon. Nevertheless, with so many subscriptions available, and many of us already signed up to more than one, is another subscription service really something you should be looking to tie yourself into?"
Neil writes "2017 has seen a huge influx of NeoGeo titles arrive on Xbox One. In fact, we've had a bit of everything that we every wanted, plus a whole load of stuff we didn't. Today the Xbox One NeoGeo library continues to expand with a game that I, quite honestly, have never heard of. But the chance to become a Magician Lord sounds pretty damn intriguing."
Nick writes "In this 2D point and click adventure, Daedalic Entertainment treat us to an immersing adaptation of Ken Folletts book The Pillars of the Earth in a game that truly captures the epic vision Follett presented to his fans back in 1989."
