It’s the week before E3 and I know you’re all excited to see what announcements are made. I know I am. Unfortunately I won’t be there (hopefully next year) and it turns out FooBear won’t be able to make it either (sorry loyal minions) but we will still have a few people from the site attending.
We have a good chunk of news to talk about and Isli is here to join us. Hope you all enjoy this weeks podcast and let’s hope next week delivers some great gaming news!
Syndicate is a reboot that nobody seems to have asked for, especially not one that completely changes the genre from an isometric tactical game to first person shooter, rendering it beyond recognisable. Sure, we miss it and would probably welcome an HD remake, but making it virtually incomparable with its former entries? That’s akin to EA digging up your late gran and slapping in a bionic eye and an arm that turns into a tea stirrer so she can make you a cuppa just like you remembered. But is this reboot an improved and welcome revisit or does it add too much milk and not enough sugar? Here’s our review to find out.
First, we’ll start off by apologizing about the lateness of this giveaway, as we meant to have it up after EdEN had posted his review. Honestly, I had no idea we were giving any codes away, or I would have done this earlier! Anyway, we have a total of 10 codes to give away! These include 7 US codes and 3 EU codes. When we get the winners the codes, we’ll first ask what region you want the code for, but since we can’t guarantee that we’ll have 3 EU winners and 7 US winners, it will be first come, first serve.
With that said, each raffle ticket (save for the social media entries) will only cost 75 points, given that this is a minis title. You can ‘purchase’ up to 4 tickets. The giveaway will run until June 10th, so there’s plenty of time to get your entries in. Just don’t procrastinate! You might forget!
Indie developer Retro Affect has found a home for their unique new game called “Snapshot”. Snapshot is a 2D puzzle platformer starring a robot named Pic who carries a high-tech camera that takes pictures to remove and add objects from one place to another.
This will be Retro Affects first game that will share cross-platform functionality between the Playstation Vita and the PS3.
Bethesda just announced that id Software’s classic Doom will be coming to the PS3. Doom 3 BFG Edition will be released this Fall, and will include Doom 3, the Resurrection of Evil add-on pack, both of which have been completely re-mastered, as well as seven new levels entitled ‘The Lost Mission.’ Also included will be Doom and Doom 2!! It has also been updated to offer 3D for those that want it.
