“company of heroes 3 might be its most exciting game yet”

No genre ever really dies these days – it just takes a break while it waits for a comeback. It happened for isometric RPGs, it happened for point-and-click adventures, and, buddy, it’s about to happen for real-time strategy games. Who better to lead the charge than Relic, long-time king of the genre? Company of Heroes 3 might be its most exciting game yet – an ambitious, explosive sequel that, after a marathon hands-on session, had our strategy buff Fraser genuinely the most thrilled I’ve ever seen him be about a game. Read our huge cover feature, and get the same look in your eye he has. ROBIN VALENTINE Twitter @robinlvalentine This month Continued to know absolutely nothing about World War II history. Did they have drones then?…

alpha strike

One woman’s habit of never deleting files may have made her a legend in the Minecraftarchival scene, after it was discovered she was still holding onto an ultra-rare piece of the game’s history. In 2010, Minecraftwas still in alpha, updating on an almost weekly basis as the game found its feet. One of these builds, Alpha 1.1.1, added fishing rods and ducking, but also came with a nasty bug that crashed the game with a grey screen. A mere 3.25 hours later, that issue would be remedied by Alpha 1.1.2. Between its brief lifespan and buggy release, the previous patch was all but forgotten. Not so by Minecraft’s archival scene though. Blocky historians have spent years trying to account for every part of Minecraft’s development history, and Alpha 1.1.1 was one pain…

rare form

Luna’s Twitter thread explained that, for Minecraft archival group Omniarchive, 1.1.1 was treated as a kind of holy grail. Miraculous, then, that one of their number happened to stumble upon a tweet she made in 2010 that simply read “oooooohhhhhhh Minecraftupdate!”. The timestamp on that tweet lined up exactly within the period the elusive patch would have been available. The first person to DM Luna about the tweet was met with silence (she writes that she may have “just having a bad day”). But months later, a second notification prompted her to plug in an old USB hard drive and give it a look. Lo and behold, there were several Minecraftbuilds, one of which matched the time of release for 1.1.1. A little digging in the files later, and she’d confirmed…

thespy

Before embarking on this multi-decade assignment to gather videogame rumours for a print publication – a mission that has lasted far longer than makes any logical sense in the context of videogames, print publications, or espionage – The Spy, of course, received extensive training in the art of concealment and obfuscation. It’s not enough, for instance, to just use a fake name; the enemy expects that. Instead, you should construct a fake persona so unbelievable as to resemble a procession of staff writers grasping at any stray thought in an effort to fill this page on the day before deadline. This has the added benefit of letting you get away with pretty much anything. This column opened with an absurdly indulgent 49 word sentence, and somehow the first paragraph is…
