Games Releases (22 – 26 February 2010)

The only reason i miss PC gaming is because of titles like Civilization IV and Football Manager. Strategy/management games are non-existent on consoles. Another such game is Napoleon: Total War (PC) which is being released this week.

But my choice of game of the week is Heavy Rain (PS3). As much as i enjoyed the developer’s previous game, Fahrenheit, it was very near my personal border of what constitutes a game. In other words on how much interaction the player is actually given. From what little i have heard about Heavy Rain (trying to avoid being prejudiced as much as i can) there are a lot of people out there claiming that it has gone too far and that it’s simply not a game. However, i am all for experimenting in games as it’s the only way the medium can move forward so i would urge you too to have a look at it with an open mind.

Costas

Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life. Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded, www.forevergamers.com, and on his personal blog, www.lostingames.net.
