THE MOST DEDICATED TEAM IN THE BUSINESS The only scarything about the GamesMaster crew is how horrifyingly dedicated we are to bringing you the best magazine around! Oh, and also Robin eats people sometimes. Rob Crossland Thanks to four whole days of snow, Rob got to indulge in one of his favourite hobbies this month: driving around empty roads in a 4x4 and feeling smug. He even made a fiver pulling someone else out of a snowdrift, thus doubling his monthly earnings. Favourite horror game: Resident Evil Sam Greer We should have known better than to assign Sam a FInal Fantasy game to review. It’s reignited her obsession with maligned spin-off Lightning Returns, reducing all conversation to just a series of pitches for features about a pink-haired fashionista punching a god. Favourite horror game: Alien: Isolation Ian Evenden With…

Getting older isn’t so bad if you’re a gamer. Working helps to pay for more of what you love, namely new consoles and new games to play on them. The only problem I have is games these days are such a time investment that I don’t get the chance to see them to the end, never mind all the DLC. I’m ashamed to say I’ve not been able to finish the Witcher 3 or any of its great expansions because it just takes too much time. I’m finding myself going back to play the older classics again such as Streets Of Rage or a bit of the older Mario games as they are great pick-up-and-play titles. I’m finding that I miss the older style of games with three lives and two continues…

WEEKEND WARRIOR I have grievances to air and you’re my favourite agony aunt. I am a FIFA player. Ultimate Team has drawn me in, I’ve found communities on Facebook and I’ve made quite a few friends through it. Also, judging by the messages I receive on Xbox Live, some mortal enemies too… I’m a decent player, I accept that my mistakes cost me games. I don’t think EA sit in their dark tower deciding when we win or lose. I don’t even believe that if I have more stats I deserve to win, or that EA reward bad players with better pulls from packs (if you play FIFA you’ll meet many of these conspiracy theorists). No, my particular bugbear is in EA’s new patch for the Weekend League. It can be a brutally hard…

reader review

This platformer is how I imagine a 2D Ratchet & Clank game might look! Robin is a mechanic on the run from a corrupt government in a world where engineering is illegal. Armed with wrench and stun-gun, she sets out to discover why. The story is strange and hard to follow, but the charming characters and the lovely chiptune soundtrack make up for it. The boss battles are engaging and keep me on my toes. They range from medium-sized enemies to screen-filling foes but size doesn’t matter – it’s about strategy as you figure out their weak spots and timing. Shooting and jumping feel satisfying but the wrench is weak. Robin can also stomp enemies, and use her wrench to swing to higher locations, and travel on ziplines. Unfortunately, the puzzles and some questionable…
