Red Dead Redemption 2, a game that I received for my birthday last year, but one that I’ve only just started to get into properly. It’s a game that many seem to love, but what took me so long? When I first tried to get a flavour of the tale that Arthur Morgan spins, my venerable PlayStation 4 (no Pro here) was hooked up to a run of the mill 32” TV. Things looked fine, but it certainly wasn’t the…
Being one of the most trend-setting gamers around, I’ve always got my eye out for the newest and most unknown titles. This month I’ve been trying out something called Grand Theft Auto 5.
For those of you that don’t know, Grand Theft Auto 5 is an impressive open world game in which you travel the fictional state of San Andreas with camera-phone in hand, taking pictures of the fascinating wildlife and interesting scenery. Occasionally you’ll run into mostly unpleasant characters who will try to encourage you to perform rather unpleasant and often unlawful acts, but otherwise you’re free to explore the land and oceans in relative peace.
Tomorrow is a big day in the world of the new generation machines. They’be both been selling by the bucketload, but apart from Halo: The Master Chief Collection and (a botched) DriveClub, they’ve been lacking on any exclusive title to set them apart with re-releases like The Last of Us Remastered making up the numbers. As we march our way through November, we are going to see if Grand Theft Auto V will bring the remaining few old-gen gamers over to the new world.
For a moment when I first met Trevor in Grand Theft Auto V I thought I was going to be really turned away from a game which, until that point, hadn’t gripped me as much as I thought it would. Instead, the game opened up to a much greater extent than I thought it would and I have really started to get into the rhythm of things. Earlier this month Kevin and I shared Our Thoughts on the game, and while I still haven’t finished it, I think I can deliver my Verdict.
Rockstar and I are currently in the middle of a small domestic. Despite my adoration for all things GTA, the gaming giant is still refusing to tell me whether or not one of my favourite franchises is returning to the PC in the form of GTA V. Until I hear anything more positive on that front, I’m therefore temporarily forced to write about those console things instead.
So here it is, the final four in our countdown to 2013’s most anticipated games. This year is certainly jam packed with some brilliant releases, but with so many which are the top games to look out for? Read on to find out our final four countdown of the ‘Top 10 Games To Look Forward To In 2013’.
There’s no denying that L.A. Noire is an adult game in the truest sense of the word. Yes, it has swears. Yes, it has blood. But L.A. Noire is probably the most mature of all the games featuring the Rockstar branding thus far. With themes of rape, exploitation, shady dealings and of course, murder it’s a game that proudly displays it’s genre on its sleeve. The only problem is, it doesn’t nearly reach the narrative heights it wants to, although…
