Here in England, GameCity, a games festival, has just wrapped up. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend a lot of the events there, but one thing I made doubly sure I had time for was a live demonstration of Journey, the forthcoming game from ThatGameCompany.
I showed The Binding of Isaac to my nine year old brother. Only in passing, as some of the content in there, I wouldn’t want him to see. He said, “Is it like Zelda?” to which I replied, “Well, sort of.”
Because I’ve been a bit negative lately, I’m going to kick off a series where we talk about things we love. ‘Kick off’ is probably the right term too, since I am going to focus on the Freeflow combat system in Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken landed in our inbox the other day, so we decided to take a look at it. Is it flying the coop? Or is it egg on your face?
This is probably going to be a short one, despite playing on the Vita twice, I got about 15 minutes with it in total.

Mercury Hg brings back the Mercury franchise for the first time since 2007. Has it still got the same flow?
For those of you legally able to drink you may wish to check out The Drunken Moogle. It’s a blog focusing on combining your love of video games with the impairing effects of alcohol. Which, in some cases, isn’t a bad thing.
At some point during a board meeting, in between puffs of expensive-cigar smoke, jokes at the expense of the working class, and with classical music playing in the background, some head of marketing successfully pitched the idea of using a round of video game “Beta testing” as a marketing tool.
Since we’ve all played Deus Ex Human Revolution and it was a tug of war on who’d review the game we’re doing a roundtable instead. Since this is a Roundtable instead that means isn’t so much a review as a breakdown of the game; our thoughts, experiences, etc. Beware, there will be spoilers.
