  1. Baggers In Space is looking wonderful, there's some great games in development for the Next, I'll include a few vids below: To keep track of future Spec Next releases, there's this website: http://www.spectrumnextgames.uk/ One of the biggest titles headed to the next is from the team which created the phenomenal Castlevania: Spectral Interlude. It's currently going by the name of No Mercy, and is promising to be a bit of a spiritual follow up to Target: Renegade. No videos have been posted yet, but this early screen is promising.
  2. I'm sure I'll be able to find an hour to put that together. I've been worked off my arse recently, so haven't read too much about the various E3 plans (or rather, non-plans) of the big hitters. As I understand it, MS, Bathesda and Ubisoft will be there as usual, Nintendo will be exhibiting and putting another Direct together, whilst Sony and EA are skipping it. Is that right? At the very least we'll want somewhere to gather and have a natter about the announcements. Last year I set up a thread in A&F to see who wanted to contribute and I thought that worked well. A bit closer to the time when everyone has announced their plans, I'll probably set up a similar thing, although as E3 changes, it's probably best to see if we can improve how we cover it.

    Axiom Verge - PS4/Vita

    That stings as I bought the Vita limited edition. Complete scumbags, I hope Happ gets paid, I enjoyed the hell out of AV.

    Crackdown 3

    Yes I've been considering that, especially with the €1 trial offer!

    Abandoned Games (2019)

    Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn I knew five minutes in I'd made a mistake parting with my cash for this. One of the most lamentable 2.5d fighters I've ever played. On Rush I bought this mere days before it was announced as a PS Plus game, which made the fact that it completely failed to connect with me all the worse! A brave idea which wasn't without it's merits, but in practice it felt like a very unfocussed experience, with the takedowns not feeling satisfying enough to really make up for the lack of racing. As a mode it would have been interesting, but on it's own I struggled to care much about each race, it felt like luck was such a big factor in the end score I didn't feel there was much skill to polish and improve upon. Quantum Break I keep on picking at this, convinced I'll get into it eventually. Alas it's not happening, it's just a dog rough third person shooter with a tedious story taking up a ridiculous amount of screen time. I'm really hopeful that Control will live up to the promise of the trailer and it will be the Psi-Ops sequel I'll never get.

    Switch - Too many ports?? (Ports Die Twice)

    Wake me when Devil's Third gets a port.

    Crackdown 3

    Sounds pretty unanimous. Right, I'll make it my pay day treat!

    Crackdown 3

    I've just finished the first Crackdown and had a real blast with it. It really is a genuine Xbox classic which still holds up incredibly well. As MS are being kind enough to give the sequel away right now, I rolled straight into that and what a difference! It wears the skin of the first game and the nuts and bolts of the gameplay are mostly the same, but it feels like a joyless rehash. Everything is a lot gloomier, the structure lacks the purity of the first games assignment to take down three main bosses and whilst you can tell they have tried to keep it all more varied, I think a big part of Crackdown's appeal was how little it steered you. Anyhoo, as I'm still in a Crackdown mood, I'm wondering whether it's worth persevering with the second game to see if it gets any better (or I adapt to the new structure and elements) or jump straight to Crackdown 3. Is Crackdown 3 more of a return to the style of the first game? My sense is it is, but just wanted to check in to make sure.

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?™

    I always find this a great accompaniment to late night working sessions:

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    This one still puts a lump in my throat when it catches me in the right mood. Other notable mentions would go to Marillion, for Sugar Mice and Somewhere Else.
  11. Feud. Actually, that popped into my head as a joke, but the more I think about it.... What do you say @JPickford, would a load of wizards running around brewing potions, turning each other into zombies and blasting them with lightening whilst collecting plants translate to the battle royale formulae? Could be a Next exclusive.

    I didn't think I'd seen Yoshi around for an age. Where are you posting these days Yoshi?

    Crackdown 3

    Yeah, that Digital Foundry vid sold me. The bit where it showed you scaling a building and some of the platforms were pulling away. That ticked a big warm nostalgia box for me, an honest to goodness bit of platforming with the added joy of being an upgradable super soldier and not a fetch quest in sight. Sign me up.
  14. That looks fantastic. The team have really held their course and got this right.
