Mornin '13
Filed under: GAMING

Man, it appears we're in for one boring gaming summer. Apart from The Last of Us, which is PS3-only, there's really not a lot on the horizon to get us through the approaching trimester of laziness and sweat. Once again, we'll be rummaging through our own game archives, simultaneously trying to dig up something via those Steam discounts just to get that much needed gaming fix.

While we're on the subject of fixes, Metro: Last Light needs a lot of fixes - on the PC.

Yeah, yeah, the review's going up today, sorry it's taking me so long. I have no excuses this time. Well, only one... Um, I forgot what it was now. Anyway, the review's definitely, definitely going up today.

Another thing that's been worrying me, apart from the sheer sensation of a potentially tedious, hot bloody summer, is the fact that everyone, and I do mean everyone, in the game development business wants to play it safe. Even Peter Molyneux who was always keen to experiment with all sorts of ideas. Sure, most of the time he didn't make any sense at all and it felt like he was smoking top-class weed instead of actually making an effort with the game he's working on, but still I respected him in a way. Now, even Molyneux is going mobile (you're about to find out in minute when I post the news).

Developers, as I have explained many times, need to grow some balls... hairy ones. As soon as possible too.

Yeah, that's in June. You're right. Well, okay, there's that. Anything else?

  Vader: Take a wild stab in the dark, dickweed.

Apart from Shadowrun Returns, not got my eye on any Summer realeases either. Company of Heroes 2 can wait for a while. Got an immense back catalogue of games to workthrough anyway, not helped by this bundle:
Vader [STAFF] May 21 2013, 03:05 am EDT
That's a weird bundle.

Vader: Is it quality then?

Perfect time for me to catch up on gaming.
Terminator May 21 2013, 04:08 am EDT
Morning. The only summer game I'm interested in is 'Remember Me' in June. Vader is right about the industry playing too safe. They need to start taking chances again.
  Vader: That hasn't happened in a while.
Vader [STAFF] May 21 2013, 04:10 am EDT
So, as raingod put it, summers is gonna be about catching up. Well, for some people anyway.
  Terminator: Well I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm going to …

Vader [STAFF] May 21 2013, 09:51 am EDT
Dragon Commander. I've only seen multiplayer footage of that thing.

Apparently Rising Storm is playable now and shit, so you can have a good ole' war in the Pacific theatre. Due to that news, I learned my friend is a racist. LOL

G'day to you all, gents.
