Re-masters are starting to become a real big thing now. We`ve seen so many announced and so many that will be coming at some point at this year, that it feels like nearly every major franchise and any other franchise for that matter, has revealed that they`re going to re-master some sort of game for the next-gen console. A few weeks back, Rainbow Studios released a re-mastered version of MX v ATV Supercross Encore for the Xbox One, a few months after the PS4 got it`s released. Is it a game that is warrant of the re-master treatment? Or is it a game that should have stayed on the back burn days of the last-gen consoles?
Song of the Deep is a metroidvania style game, created by Insomniac Games, and published by GameTrust. It is the first game that has been published by the new publishing arm of the huge American gaming retailer GameStop. It is a single player games that is played as a 2D side-scroller. Having recently reviewed the fantastic Inside which for me set a new bar in the 2D side scrolling genre, it’ll certainly be interesting to see what Insomniac are able to bring to the table with Song of the Deep, in what is a bit of a departure of genres for them, being the team behind franchises such as Spyro, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance and Sunset Overdrive.
The year was 1997 and a little known racing game was raising hell among the UK press. Carmageddon was a racing the likes of which the UK had never seen before and as soon as I saw the first blood splattered screenshots I knew this game had to be mine. The game was instantly banned by the BBFC and was only allowed to be re-released when it had met all their heavily censored requirements. This of course only heightened my anticipation and the anticipation of those around me and it was one hell of a publicity coup all for free. I remember original copies changing hands in my local computer club for small fortunes back in the day and all because of a little pixelated blood.
I thought games for Kinect had died a long time ago, unfortunately I was wrong. But fair play to Virtual Air Guitar who have seemingly cornered the market by releasing Beatsplosion, Squid Hero and now Kung-Fu for Kinect. Virtual Air Guitar have decided to relaunch Kung-Fu High Impact as Kung-Fu Kinect exclusively for the Xbox One.
When they first revealed 7 Days to Die, way back in April, it was a game that I instantly liked the look of it. I love the zombie games, and there`s so many games and franchises I have played in my gaming life that I really have enjoyed and really set the bar and boundary for the zombie and horror genre. So when 7 Days to Die was announced as a next-gen title, I was really up for it. But, I wish games that weren’t finished or anywhere near ready to be released aren’t released. Because 7 Days to Die is a game that either should have been enrolled into the Game Preview Program in its current state, or not released at all. I was about to realise what a true horror it was.
