Just added Chinatown Wars to my games list. Such an underlooked GTA entry. For me, it’s better than San Andreas.

Hotline Miami

Everyone keeps on telling me how Hotline Miami’s aesthetics and music are brilliant. For me, though, that’s not a major attraction. It’s the fact that the game is a perfect example of something that is mechanically extremely simple yet full of depth. Easy to pick up and play, difficult to master. In that sense, it feels like an 8- or 16-bit title.

Absolutely sublime.

Code name: Next Generation Portable

When Sony unveiled the successor to the PlayStation Portable two weeks ago, they specifically called it by its code name. I find this somewhat strange: if its final name is indeed PSP2 as is commonly thought, they would probably have named it as such during the announcement. My guess is that Sony is trying to reposition the NGP as an all-purpose portable device and not just a games platform, and the final name will likely reflect this. However, I don’t expect them to drop the well-recognised “PlayStation” brand altogether.
