Sam Tyler - Editor

When he finally managed to get a go on his older brother’s brand new ZX Spectrum, unbeknownst to Sam he was embarking on a lifetime love of games and being British. When Sir Clive Sinclair stopped making computers Sam had to admit that he needed to buy some consoles made further afield and he has not looked back since; owning every single console since the Super Nintendo.

As one of four, he learned fast to share a multi-tap and play games such as ‘Bomberman’ and ‘Snowboard Kids’. Now as a Librarian he believes in world peace and harmony, shunning the world of competitive gaming in favour of co-op. You can find him online in a variety of places from shooting terrorists in ‘Rainbow 6 Vegas’ to tending his garden in ‘Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise’.

As a Librarian, Sam is also an avid reader and would encourage you all to try a book once in a while (and keep him in a job).

Straight to hell

You Have a Gat out of Hell's Chance with July's PS+ Games

Before M$ had the idea to give away a couple of 'free' games every month, PlayStation were offering the service.  Yes, this may be because PS+ is a paid service, but a game for $0(ish) is nothing to be scoffed at.  The protagonists of the Saints Row series are used to taking things for nothing, so don't feel bad that in July you will get Saints Row: Gat out of Hell for nada.

This supposed Final Fight has been going on for years at this point

Your Chance to have that Final Fight once more on Xbox One

You can take your immersive graphics, tantalizing story lines and abundance of polygons and cram them all into a giant sack and sink them into the ocean.  Give me a side scrolling beat-em up any day.  The Xbox One does not have that many of these to its name, but that is being cured by the likes of Final Fight: Double Impact getting the backwards compatible treatment.

Classic may be taking it a bit far

Four Classic XBLA Co-Op Titles get the Backwards Compatibility Treatment

The drip feed approach to releasing backward compatible games on the Xbox One is like a new form of water torture, but at least it offers a nice surprise as a game you forgot you own pops up on the console.  For co-op fans, four out of the five games released this week are just for you; namely The Cave, Double Dragon Neon, Altered Beast and Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.
