This month we’re stepping back in time for a retro special, celebrating such legendary classics as Doom and Half-Life. Across our huge 18 page feature, we’ve taken a look at their history and enduring legacies, and even chatted to their creators, including gaming legend John Romero. Make a cup of tea, pull up a chair, and indulge in some warming nostalgia on us.
Over in previews, we’ve been hands-on with Fuser, the latest music game from Rock Band developer Harmonix that lets you mix together your own original creations out of your favourite songs. Plus we’ve been salvaging spacecraft in seriously satisfying sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker and fighting alongside our own former selves in mind-bending time-loop FPS Quantum League. In reviews, the past becomes the present as we check out the year’s biggest releases yet: the impossibly intense Doom Eternal, and an actual Half-Life sequel, Half-Life: Alyx.
All that, plus we reinstall Star Trek: Bridge Commander for the full Picard experience, sing the praises of fake desktops, investigate an incredible new advance in computer memory, bring Geralt, Ciri, and Yennefer into Skyrim, and loads more.
