Game of the Month | July 2013

It's been a bit of a slow month, presumably because the end of August is looking more ridiculous than we can ever remember (more on that in a few days). But it's given us a chance to catch up with a few titles from earlier in the year (and 2012 is some cases) and get stuck in to a whole bunch of deliciously awesome games flying slightly below the radar.

NB. We'd have liked to have included Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. and Pikmin 3 on this list, but after promising to send them, Nintendo failed to do so, thus we have no idea really of how good either of them are. You'd think, given the ailing nature of their home console, widespread timely coverage of their only first-party would be a good thing


Game of the Month | July 2013

Project X Zone - Project X Zone is an utter delight for fans of... well... pretty much every game from Capcom, SEGA and Namco Bandai. Hilarious dialogue, innovative hybrid RPG strategy, a massive character roster and eyecatching combat conspire to create a crossover so recklessly insane that it probably has no right to exist.

But we're so very glad it does. - 8/10

Game of the Month | July 2013

Wyv and Keep - Fantastic fun alone and an absolute riot in co-op, Wyv And Keep is one of the feel-good sleeper hits of summer 2013. If you're a fan of logic-based puzzlers and classic platformers, don't let this indie gem slip under your radar. - 8/10


Game of the Month | July 2013


Stealth Inc. - Stealth Inc's title may have been watered down, but this is otherwise a gorgeous and full-fat revamp of Curve Studios' majestically brutal stealth platformer. Vita owners should waste no time in jumping on board with one of the best (and only) exclusives of the summer, while cross-buying PS3 players have no excuse not to start dying, swearing and dying some more. - 9/10


So if you want to bag a copy of Stealth Inc., all you have to do in order to get involved is to finish the following sentence: "Stealth games are awesome because...". Pop a little blurb into the comments box below and job done.

The competition will close on Mon 5th August at noon.

This month's winner will be chosen by divine right.

A few little house rules:

  • UK entrants only please
  • No duplicate accounts
  • Please use a valid email address
  • Do feel free to comment more than once in the thread, but we'll only count you once for entry.

Good luck!

...they're the only truly realistic games. In the event of a global apocalypse, I wouldn't be on a mission to save the world - I'd hide in a dark place with a cardboard box over my head

... they are one of few game genres that actually require skill and patience. You can't just go Rambo and kill everything in a stealth game like Dishonored or even The Last of Us. Unless you're a ninja...... then anything is possible.

Stealth games are better because bow and arrow. /end

Stealth games are awesome because it's always nice to take a break from the over-the-top noisy gratuitous killing I do in real life.

(Exclude from the draw - I don't have a ps3. Also my post is totally un-PC and inappropriate in light of whatever gun rampage will probably happen between now and the closing date.)

I like to hide in the shadows and sneak around. You can do all sorts of things when people can't see you.

I could be behind you right now watching you read this!

...of the emotional torment. You're chuffed that you did it, but since nobody saw you, you can't prove it.:(

...they're a socially acceptable form of camping.

... you'll never know how i watched you from the shadows as a child.

Stealth games are awesome because...nothing else gives you that incredible tension of possibly being caught. Except maybe 'Hide & Seek'!

Stealth games are awesome because...Snake? Come in, Snake! SNAKE! SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!!!!!

Stealth games are awesome because... They've given me great training to be able to sneak in late after a night at the pub, without the missus catching me.

"What was that?"
"Ahh, must be seeing things."

...you get to listen in on the inane chatter of the AI.

Stealth games are awesome because you never see them coming.
