SEGA FOREVER

Standard

Sega… what do we all think of Sega?

There’s no denying they still make some great games, but what they are now is a long way away from what they once were.

Sega’s Total War series is easily the best RTS game series available and Company Of Heroes isn’t far off either. Then there’s Bayonetta and Football Manager who lap the plaudits up too, but it’s their little, blue mascot that doesn’t fare all that well lately.

I’ve never really been into Sonic since it’s early foundations, everything pre-2002 was great but I personally don’t feel like it’s progressed anywhere since then.

From the 13th to 15th June 2017, we gamers were treated to many a reveal during this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (hence the 3 e’s if you actually do live under a rock).

I’m looking for A Way Out of this single-player monotony

Standard

I love cooperative games. Playing with a buddy and working together to overcome scenarios makes me feel all fuzzy inside. Personally, I’ll always prefer split-screening locally as opposed to playing online. I just think there’s something to relish when you’re sat right next to your mate, sibling or some random bum you’ve pulled off the street.
