Junior Smart of Frost magazine writes ‘Listening to the critics of Edge of Time and looking at the efforts put into what some would say the all too soon reboot of the Spider-man franchise Beenox knew they had to up their game. Mentality wise, they had to approach this just like Marvel Studios were going to approach the movie it was going to be a one shot gun; they knew they were either going to re-energise the title or kill it. Restore the hope to millions of spidey fans, or destroy it.’

“When you think of ‘indie games,’ what comes to mind? For many people, including myself, the mind begins conjuring up images of 2D platformers and lots of them. That, or games with a retro pixel art style. There’s nothing wrong with that, and the mindset of indie games all being like that is quite dated, but that is no doubt what many gamers imagine. Obviously indie games have the capacity to have any art style and fall into any genre, and Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers has reminded me of this simple fact. So, this is a different kind of game but does it succeed in being creative?”

OXM: “Car nuts love to tinker around under the hood, but sometimes even dedicated mechanics just want to hop in and drive. Jeremy McGraths Offroad cant hold a candle to full-featured (and full-priced) four-wheeling champions like Dirt, but its no-frills arcade simplicity still has a certain charm.”

BT writes: Lets face it, the Sony PSP is dead. It has kicked the bucket. It has cashed in its chips. If we buried it face down, its ass could be used as a bike rack. The Sony PSP has pretty much fallen off the map in the advent of its now hipper cousin, the PlayStation Vita, and it has disappeared with nothing more but a silent whimper.
But despite the death gurgles we hear from the system, it still lingers due to the few games trickling down for one last hurrah. One such game is Gungnir, the latest installment in Japanese developers Sting Department Heaven series, which includes PSP stalwarts Knights in the Nightmare and Yggdra Union, as well as the underrated Gameboy Advance classic, Riviera: The Promised Land. A strategy RPG at its core, Gungnir is a great swan song for the PlayStation Portable, chock full of tactical goodness despite a boiler plate presentation.
