I played Grabbed by the Ghoulies via Rare Replay too Keef, I didn't know what to expect and ended up really enjoying it. Also, I cant believe the Jet Force Gemini achievements are so rare on Rare Replay, its a great game why's nobody playing it?!

RE6 definitely had tons of issues. Theres a really cool-looking bit in the Ada campaign though, I always remember that when I think about RE6!

Yeah AVP was top wasn't it, loved the campaigns. I enjoyed the multiplayer too, It'd probably get a player boost if it went backwards compatible so I'd definitely pop my head in online. The one weird thing about that game is that Marines could melee, block and counter aliens physically, seemed a strange choice but was actually quite fun! You bloody needed it on Nightmare! Block, counter, shotgun :D If I remember right not only did it give you a window to shoot with impunity but it put the Alien at a distance where it's blood wouldn't hurt you when you shot it.

I think NeverDead stands up if you go back to it, I played through it a year ago or so ago and had plenty of fun. It was a little rough around the edges sure but I really enjoyed the novel mechanics, nice looking game too. Some great 2000ad easter eggs in there!! I'll be taking screens and captures of them if it gets the BC treatment :)

Suggestions / Re: First episode of Dredd TV series

I definitely agree that pretty much any character that isn't Dredd shouldn't be safe. MC1 is a brutal place, it should feel dangerous for the characters in it, for street Judges and especially citizens. Although don't kill Judges too often, they're the best of the best, SAS cops, I feel there should be weight to a Judge biting it. I remember being a kid and reading America, that scene where Total War shoot the two Judges responding to the bogus call and there's a big close up of the gaping bullet hole in the first Judge's chest, he might as well have been Dredd to my young eyes, it was a really shocking thing to see a Judge's life ended so cheaply and brazenly.

I'd establish Dredd himself first along with the world, he shouldn't be the main focus of absolutely every episode but I'd say hes the anchor and should have plenty of his own. I'd perhaps structure the first ep like 'a day on the beat for Dredd', show us both the more 'mundane' side of being a Judge at first, cruising around doing people for easily resolved crimes like littering and Jimping (great way to introduce us to the sights and sounds of MC1 too, as Dredd patrols by hot spots and vantage points in the city, across overskeds etc) and escalate as it goes, ending embroiled in a chase and hardcore shootout with sugar smugglers or something. As the result of Dredd's workload are piled onto the Resyk conveyor to some chilling music (Nick Cave? Are we going for a licenced soundtrack or does that clash with the world?) we see a Total War tattoo on one of the bodies.. !! Whatever the crimes and cases in this establishing ep, I think they should each explain something interesting about MC1.

It could tie up with him getting in the sleep machine for 10 mins (maybe as he fades into sleep the screen fades to black, then our image is instantly back as he seemingly immediately wakes up, a digital clock shows 10 minutes has passed) before -still bruised and scabby from his last shift- grunting wearily as he makes sure his boots are extra tight and then driving out of the Hall of Justice off into MC1.

Left4Dead is fantastic! Call me a shill but I loved ZAT even more :D!

I just read through the Nikolai Dante book, just as good as I remember! The extra stuff was nice too, I had the huge graphic novel from years and years ago, and it was missing parts like him bedding the Rasputin lady. He still made reference to it later though when he see's the Rasputin peeps at the Tsar's party and at the time I was confused

Amazing article!! Their story makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Really enjoyed hearing all the details about how 2000ad relates to their games output too, well done that interviewer. I look forward to more 2000ad games!

JK: Didn’t they have it from Activision from Fox, or something like that? ‘Cause they’d done the Lynx sideways-scrolling beat ’em-up… [It’s unclear what is being referenced here, but it’s likely to be Capcom’s coin-op game Alien Vs. Predator – GC]

I think they must be talking about the 1993 belt-scroller AVP game on SNES developed by Jorudan and published by Activision. Maybe it was getting a Lynx port at some point? Despite being the same genre, franchise and contemporaneous it's formally unrelated to the much superior 1994 Capcom arcade hit, which was entirely developed and published by Capcom afaik and came out only a few months earlier than Rebellion's game.

I think RE5 gets stick as a RE game because with the co-op it becomes less scary than even RE4, and understandably leans even more into the action, taking it further away from what RE was. It's still a fantastic game though, particularly if you've got a chum.

The stories in the older games were a bit more grounded, although still cheesy and campy in spots (particularly the original). It gets crazier than ever in 5.

Maybe try Dead Space 3 if you're looking for a similar kind of game? The first two single player Dead Space games are better than fan-favourite RE4 to me, doing a better job being horror games whilst still being fun, gorgeous games and having great stories. Dead Space 3 added Co-Op (taking similar hits to scariness and adding focus to combat like RE5 did) and although it's perhaps no RE5, it's much better than RE6.

Do you think we'll ever see any Rebellion games go backwards compatible on Xbox? There's a bunch I'd want - Rogue Warrior, AVP, NeverDead, Sniper Elite V2, even ones like Sniper Elite 3 which we have superior Xbox One versions of, but I think it's cool to preserve these things!

A few of those might have licensing issues to work out, Dick Marcinko would have to sign off on Rogue Warrior, Whoever owns the AVP licence would have to ok AVP (I think Sega still owns the Aliens licence so I think that's helpful), as for NeverDead I'm not sure what the situation is there, Konami published but I think they were also somehow involved in development, so I don't know what they own. I assume the Sniper Elite games would have no problems?

Oh and that's just 360, lets not forget Sniper Elite 1, Dredd Vs. Death and Rogue Trooper on the original Xbox!  :o

Well I do love open world games (an open world Dredd game set in Mega City One is probably my dream game). It's getting a sexy patch for the Xbox One X as well right? I'm hopefully going to get an X some time in the coming months, maybe that'd be a good time for it.

Anyone see the Robot Wars final on Sunday? It was pretty great, loads of good barneys, tolchock city. The lad that won it really deserved it bless him, after a few series of trying he made a bot that Carbide couldn't chew up! I wonder how he reinforced the front better this time

I never played Witcher 1 or 2, just jumped straight in with 3.
Got about a years worth of enjoyment out of it- fantastic game.

Damn, making me want to have a go. I will take a run at it sometime, everyone who's played it thinks it's the bee's knees and I usually like the genre. If the gameplay's much improved that'll go a long way to helping me get over Geralt aka 'The Void'. I wonder if the books are worth a bash.

It's got a little bit of a Mighty No. 9 look to it hasn't it. I've watched the trailer a few times now, its growing on me. The outdoors environments and the effects look great.

Apparently they have announced MegaMan 11 too. Cool!

When they teased the announcement I got my hopes up for a new Mega Man for a second! I'd love them to take another stab at a 3d one.

Last game I played through was Castlevania: Curse of Darkness on PS2, fantastic game, much better than Lament of Innocence which preceded it. Platforming takes a backseat in both and they focus more on combat. LoI's combat was quite shallow and with very flat, board-game maps whereas CoD adds more interesting terrain and lots of cool systems for things like xp, loot, crafting items and raising familiars to fight with you. Its a lot more substantial and looks a bit better too.

I remember there was some outcry from fans about Mercury Steam 'turning Castlevania into God of War' when they made Lords of Shadow on 360 and PS3, but it's not like Konami hadn't already gone in the 'Character Action' direction themselves, and successfully. LoS rocked too anyway!
