“one colossal feature, a behemoth of paper and words”

Videogames are like buses: you wait for ages, and then 51 come along at once, crashing into each other wildly as they all try to occupy the same section of street. With so many amazing games on the way, how could we ever pick just one for our cover this month? That’d be like asking us to pick our favourite reader. No, the only right thing to do was cram the whole lot into one colossal feature, a behemoth of paper, words, hands-on impressions, and interviews. Within this mighty beast’s folds you’ll find all the latest on Mario’s hat-flinging adventures, the trenches of WWII, two separate multiplayer pirate games, Bioware’s answer to Destiny, and much more! (I’ve just realised I totally can pick our favourite reader, though. It’s Greg. You keep doing…

THE MOST DEDICATED TEAM IN THE BUSINESS The team’s feeling absolutely fine after pulling together this month’s huge feature. Ignore that thousand-yard stare in their eyes. That’s just how they normally look, we promise. Ben Griffin The only thing Ben’s been putting more effort into this month than running around finding the latest news is trying to throw rubbish into the bin from his desk. His aim’s not improving, but he’s learned a valuable life lesson: someone else will always pick it up for you. What would you possess with Mario’s cap? The Great Barrier Reef Rob Crossland Despite refusing to have anything to do with ‘The Words’, Rob’s been offering us his opinion on every driving game going this month. His verdict? The Crew 2 – rubbish; Need For Speed - could be good; the old…

letter of the month

The Xbox One X specifications have been revealed [see p10], and it looks and sounds pretty amazing! It’s great to see a console closing the gap on PCs. Maybe in the future we won’t have as much “PC beats all” nonsense that you get on social media these days… maybe. I’ve always been a day one adopter of consoles as I just don’t have the patience to wait. In past generations they would inevitably release ‘slim’ versions, ‘elites’, etc, but there was no real need to upgrade unless you were rich or didn’t already own the system. I want the Xbox One X, but if I sold my XO, which I bought for £425, I wouldn’t recoup much of the price. I have a young family, and although my wife lets…

Button mash Being in my early 30s, my first introduction to gaming was the Sega Master System when I was just a boy, with just a D-pad and two buttons. Then came the Sega Mega Drive, with three buttons. From there controller layouts have exploded into life with triggers, shoulder buttons, touch pads, and more. Games have even outgrown the buttons available, and we now require button combinations, such as holding a shoulder button to bring up a weapon wheel, then selecting from that using an analogue stick. I can no longer flick between games because I fear getting my controls mixed up. Series like The Legend Of Zelda, previously very user-friendly, are now upping their difficulty, and this makes me worried about the accessibility of games for the next generation…

I think it must be World Of Warcraft, though I’ve been clean of my addiction for years now. I used to play every single night with my guild, plus raids at weekends. Damn, I used to have so much time on my hands… Robin Valentine, Editor Fallout 3 as I did it all on 360, PS3, and PC. Including all the DLC too. Everything. 1000 Gamerscore, Platinum on PS3. Must have been mad. Nitty Grimes, @nitty_grimes Grand Theft Auto V. It never ends… Zeeke Peter, @PeterBanner1 The Movies. With the amount of creativity and customisation options in sandbox mode you can create whatever kind of blockbuster you want. Daniel Climo, Facebook Borderlands 2 – love the local and online 4 person co-op, great story, levelling up through different story difficulties, great bosses, and the all-round fun and friendly…
