Polynauts Central: (24-25/11 Archived)


Today's header image brought to you by Chaosbirdomaid, and a hell of a platformer.

Its Saturday! Well, not really, not at the time of writing this. It's actually 11.49pm on Friday night, so any greetings I give you vis-a-vis Saturday would be lies. POLYNAUTS CENTRAL TIME TALK NOW.

EDIT: It's also Sunday now! I feel like hell, so you guys just carry on! Polynauts Community thingy back next week, when I'm not broken!

Here are some Community focused regular topics.



1: Silent Hill: Book Of Memories Review: Revisionist History by Phil Kollar

Book of Memories brings a long list of changes to the Silent Hill formula, but all of the tweaks seem out-of-touch and desperate. "You guys like co-op games?" it asks. "We've got co-op now! And loot? We totally added loot!" You can practically see nervous sweat dripping off the game as it begs to be loved or even considered.

1: The Walking Dead endings and story discussions (Yeah, there are spoilers) by Vallah4

"First let me just say if you haven't finished playing the Walking Dead Episode 5, leave. Serious, close this thread and either start playing Episode 5 to completion or start the game from Episode 1 because you haven't played it yet. There's even a nice disc based version out in December you can pick up or finish it on the weekend or when you usually get your gaming in but don't keep reading."

2: First 6 months of 2013.....So many games, So little time by paultheg33k

"2012 was a good year for gaming, but the first half of 2013 could be incredible. I wanted to share the list of the games that are slated for release within the first six months of 2013. It is possible that all of these titles will be on shelves before what I expect to be an epic E3. What are you excited for in 2013?"
