Reboot the Duke??

It has recently come to my attention that the Duke Nukem franchise may be getting rebooted with a game titled ‘Duke Begins’ but when looking at Dukes latest outing this could either be something of a saving grave, or an unholy nightmare.No doubt most people are aware that the recent release ‘Duke Nukem Forever’ did very poorly with almost every review ripping it to shreds offering little to no redeeming quality’s of the game, which for most just came across as another generic first person shooter that just happened to feature Duke Nukem. Now first let it be know that I myself am not really a Nukem fan, I played and still have Duke 3D which is a pretty impressive shooter, and when I heard about Duke Forever I half expected it to be a newer more updated version of this classic title and I think many others did to.

The Neverhood may be rereleased

Have you ever heard of a PC game called ‘The Neverhood’ no didn’t think so,although the game received positive reviews it was not a commercial hit and it didn’t help that its release coincided with the mid-1990s decline of the adventure game, which also caused the failure of such other great titles as the brilliant Grim Fandango. ‘The Neverhood’ is a point and click adventure game created by Doug Tenapal (creator of Earth worm Jim) which was made using claymation graphics making it look very original compared to games such as broken sword etc.. The story was not exactly memorable especially when it is not entirely reviled until the end of the game, you simply start the game with no explanation or story which is kind of nice in the idea of creating your own back story or searching for clues to your existence. Being a point and click you can guess that the puzzles were the main aspect of the game and yes they are both intelligent and funny, having said that the entire game is quite funny not just in the characters action but also the music which is both catchy and humorous.

Ms Splosion Man Review

In 2009 Twisted Pixel released Splosion Man onto the Xbox Live Arcade , the game gained almost instant popularity due to its mix of simplistic controls, challenging levels and  original humour. Now two years later fans have been treated with the awaited sequel entitled Ms Splosion man which bares the obvious similarities to its predecessor while offering up so many new additions that it manages to feel like a completely new experience, having recently completed the single player mode I can easily state that Ms Splosion Man far surpasses the first game while still keeping a great deal of its original charm.
