Are There Too Many Shooters?
This week it's all about shooters, especially the FPS genre. With Crysis 3 out of the bag, and the embargoes all behind us, we wax lyrical about some of our favourite shooters and ask if there are too many of them today. Are shooters really ruining the industry? Is the FPS taking over the world? Are all games destined to become COD clones? We beg for a return for TimeSplitters, lament the loss of Battlefront 3, talk about how a social basketball game can be really anti-social, and Jon gets very, very ranty indeed. Enjoy!
