    Great article, although i've always much preferred the more narrative-led and strategically minded Freecell series. Reply +11

    If it's meant to be a family edition, then why not include at least 2 controllers? Reply +7
  • Activision closes 7 Studios

    Whilst redundancies are always going to be messy, Activision seems to have developed a bit of a knack of messing companies around and generally not fulfilling their parts of deals.

    They're playing a very dirty game and will no doubt eventually be found out- I would be very surprised if any developers looking for a publisher talk to Acti if this is how they treat their staff. Once the CoD series starts dipping in popularity, it could be a very rocky road for them.

    My screen is referring to a game that I made when I was about 12 called 'The Seal of Madness', where you had to constantly rescue a demented seal that loved jumping off cliffs lemmings-style by pushing a bed underneath it. It was a terrible game but the name stuck!

  • Picross 3D

    Although I've not played Picross 3D yet, if it's anything like as addictive as the original Picross then i can absolutely relate to this review. Apart from the bath of urine bit. :P Reply 0

    Congratulations Bobby_P, an excellent review and a worthy winner! I particularly enjoyed the opening few paragraphs; it succinctly sums up why Mirrors Edge didn't do as well as it should. It was a flawed game for sure, but with a bit of perseverence it really created something totally unique. In fact, I remeber being infuriated by the fact it had any shooting in it at all- it felt jammed into the gameplay in a feeble attempt to please Johnny-Gamer-on-the-street, and almost ruined it.

    It's a pity that the moaning masses have all but cancelled any possible sequels to Mirrors Edge.

    Thanks AdamAsunder for your kind words, i'm glad i've managed to at least sum up some of things that make Vanquish such an oddity in today's gaming market :) Reply 0
