Hello, and welcome to part two of my contribution to Our Year in Games 2016. I’m continuing my tale of my year in games by talking about another selection of games that weren’t necessarily released in 2016. I have played new games this year, honest! But a lot of older games have played some part in shaping my year in games. Here’s four of them.
Over the course of the past few months, I have marked off a few games which I probably should have played a few years ago. I am, as you might have guessed if you read my note on remasters from last week, talking about the Uncharted games. In a short period of time, I worked my way through Nathan Drake’s first three adventures, and have now completed his tale in A Thief’s End.
Despite having just found a Pidgey chilling out over my keyboard, I’m not here to talk about the worldwide phenomenon that is Pokemon Go, despite all the traffic that would undoubtedly bring to the site. Instead, I want to write a bit about remasters, and how I am all for them. …
Welcome to my Day Two report from EGX 2015. Today’s Report is brought to you by the power of Domino’s, Strongbow and Netflix. A hearty mix if I might say so myself. I dragged myself out of bed at a decent time today and was at the NEC by 10:15, and from there, my journey began… …
Well, something had to be left off the list: there were simply too many games. From August onwards we were buried under a huge pile of games that were not just hugely exciting, but typically expansive and demanding in review terms. Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was as exciting a prospect as the rest, but it slipped through the net anyway.
But then, in this generation of scant exclusives, Uncharted is the single well established bragging point for Playstation owners: the perfect, colourful, lightish-hearted counterpoint to the 360’s one major new exclusive (Gears of War, dummy). It’s the birthright of any Playstation 3 owner and, as we have already established is quite good. And the third instalment was always likely to continue on that theme. And it does.
With apologies to Sony and the fine folks at the ever talented Naughty Dog, we’ve just realised that the upcoming Uncharted 3 hasn’t been mentioned on the site for something like four months. Let it not be said that Uncharted 3 is a game that is not coming out soon. In fact, the truth is quite the contrary: Uncharted 3 is very much a game that is coming out soon. In under a fortnight to be precise.
