The Resident Evil 7 trailer was one of the headline-grabbers at Tokyo Game Show 2016, but Chella isn’t convinced. She’s pulled together a list of 6 likes and dislikes.
Chella attended the European Women in Games Conference, this week, and brings us a list of things she learnt from listening to respected industry figures, such as Jessica Curry of The Chinese Room.
It’s been a busy year for gamers, so far, but Chella knows there’s a lot more to come. She picks the must play games for autumn 2016.
It seems like all the GiN columnists are on vacation. Editor John Breeden is again at the helm, this time for Chella. He’s catching Olympic fever this week, but perhaps more so for those classic track and field games of yesteryear.
In post-Brexit Britain, the false hope of the little Englander mentality portrayed in We Happy Few is even more depressing. Chella is not convinced by the survival gameplay mechanic and hopes Compulsion can deliver a compelling experience once early access is over.
This week, Pokemon GO proved that you should never underestimate Nintendo. Chella considers the AR phenomenon that has sent Nintendo’s share values soaring and seen people walking into lampposts.
Chella takes stock and picks the best games of 2016, so far. It’s been a great start to the year, but it looks set to get even better.
Looking beyond the blockbusters, Chella picks out the best indie games of E3 2016.
The women in Uncharted 4 were sidelined to make room for the men, who had the bigger story. Whilst I appreciate Naughty Dog’s effort, the notion that we should pat them on the back, simply for including some women is insulting.
A game about the Palestine/Israel conflict, Liyla and The Shadows of War, has proved too political for Apple, claiming it isn’t a game. Apple’s double standard regarding politics and its attitude towards games as vehicles for more than just entertainment is problematic, says Chella.
