Our Week in Games – Week 29

Kevin writes: I find today’s gaming trend of HD remakes and re-releases somewhat uninspiring. In most cases the ‘new’ game actually brings nothing new to the table other than updated graphics. In return the end users are charged a premium price for a game that could be over ten years old. I understand the reasons that these games can sometimes prove popular, both for the fans and the developers. But honestly I would rather just dig out my old console from the attic and play the original, the way it was intended to be played. Who’s with me?

I can only imagine how this will carry forward into the next generation of consoles. Ten years from now could I still find myself playing an updated version of Skyrim or Halo?

Anyway, that’s enough of my sentimental ramblings, its over to Reticule Towers and ‘Our Week In Games – Week 29′ where the guys have been playing the usual assortment of games. (BioShock, Hitman HD Trilogy, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wipeout 2048, Xbox 360)
