I spent the end of last year playing through a series of fantastic new releases, I was pleased that pondering
over our Games of the Year feature gave me an excuse to
return to an earlier beast. I've been playing Grand
Theft Auto 4 religiously for days on end now, never once
growing tired of its wonderful script, fabulous missions and
utterly inspiring world.
Sandbox games were 2008's 'thing', with Fallout 3
leading the way for the RPG genre. Arriving
hilariously late at the gates of Far Cry 2, I can
confirm that it could well be the way forward for
first-person shooters too, though it isn't a game without
problems. Have a read of my review to see what spoils
an otherwise mesmerising title.
If there's one thing I would really encourage you to
read this month, it's a preview of a whimsical little
adventure game called The Path. Set for a
Spring release, this oddball indie game looks more
intriguing than almost anything else on the radar.
Whether it fulfils its promises remains to be seen, but few
other 2009 releases have me as excited as this one.
The critical acclaim of World of Goo and Braid
last year shows that the best games don't necessarily come
from the biggest developers, making titles like The Path
an extremely exciting prospect indeed.

of the Month
Resolution is a monthly videogames e-zine run primarily by a group of
egocentric misfits in Leeds, UK.
It's all delivered in the lovely, straightforward format of HTML, so you've no silly PDF files to download. We aim to talk about videogames in the most diverse and relevant way possible, meaning we've the standard 'news and reviews' gubbins, but also plenty of other worthwhile articles for you to cast your watchful eyes
We do this because we bloody love videogames, we bloody love writing about them, and we're bloody proud of both of these facts. We hope that you - yes, sir/madam, you! - can share in this gleeful excitement about this most wonderful of creative media, and that you enjoy reading the words what we have written.
