This quarter, we begin our Classic Focus series. Starting with the legendary platformer Castlevania, we will examine older franchises and games that made an impact for old-school gamers. This quarter’s feature includes a brand new video series to accompany Classic Focus honorees: Classic Play. Visit our Youtube channel here to watch new videos.
Ready, Set, Begin entries are Forza Motorsport 2 (X360), Tony Hawk 3 (GC), Dungeons and Dragons Heroes (Xbox) and Mega Man X (SNES). Retrograde takes a look at Mortal Kombat (SNES), Earthworm Jim (SNES), StarCraft (PC) and U.N. Squadron (SNES).
Over on The Strip, GI tackles Ultimate Avengers in the property review, quotes from Ultimate Avengers in the Top 5 list, Cable in the Marvel character highlight and All-New Tenchi Muyo Vol. 2 in Otaku Corner. Editor in chief Lyndsey Mosley discusses the bashing of direct comic book movie lifts in the Strip Talk podcast and column, going solo in hosting duties for the first time.
A new feature for GI begins in the Dance Dance Revolution Song Spotlight. The concept: Three songs are highlighted from 1st mix through SuperNova. Check out our DDR terms glossary while you’re there and watch videos of the quarter’s selected songs.
