No PCG yet? Thought it'd be out by now.

Next month...Rhythm Action? Wonder what that will be about...will have to give this a look, wasn't stopping to read the mags at my big Tesco yesterday.

Since I stopped reading it in 2007 a summary of the past two years would make a good catchup.

Interesting cover. Dr Kawashima, some hack scientist, is considered the centre of the recent gaming universe?
Ok, that might have been a little harsh.Image
Perhaps they're implying that he's one of the reasons casual gaming has blown up over the past few years?

Still, doesn't look like a hugely exciting issue when the only games they consider worth a toot are downloadable indie-shooters.

A lot of bad games reviewed in the latest issue. Nice article about games of the decade though.
Check out my new gaming blog Player State. Updated every Wednesday.

From what little I've played and while I can completely understand the awful state The Saboteur shipped in it is actually a pretty decent game. I'd give it a 6 thus far but no more. With another patch or two it could hit a 7 or even 8 as it's reminded me of a time when games had true charm. Which is why I probably keep getting reminded of Mafia so much when driving around the game world using the bonnet view as the swinging music fills my speakers.
