It's still frosty and snowy, but there's rumours that the sun is about so we've came out from hibernation!

In this first newsletter of 2013, we're asking who you want to see next up in the interview chair and seeing what new threads have been created in the gaming forum. In the GameStore, there are two promotions for you, Anuman Interactive with a 50% discount on three popular titles and 1C Publishing has a 50% discount on 80 titles.

January/February Game Threads
New threads worth checking out include:
  • Walking Dead: Survival Instinct - Out in March and not getting rated much from the look of the initial trailer, what do you think - will it be any good?

  • Half Life or Portal Movie? - Bojingles spotted this interesting news that Gabe Newell and JJ Abrams are talking.

SpellForce 2: Faith in Destiny Scenario 3: The Last Stand
Game image for SpellForce

For the first time in SpellForce, you play not as the hero to tell his story, but rather as one of the NPCs.

In The Last Stand, Professor Twiddle is on a mission of exploration in Dun Mora. When his journey becomes too dangerous, he brings the parts for the Twiddlium Compensator to Queen Sansha for safekeeping and informs Professor Undergant of his plans.

The Nameless launch their attack on Dun Mora, as mentioned in Faith in Destiny. The elves withstand the first wave of attacks, but it soon turns out that these attacks have a new dimension.

Play as Caine and help the elves and Queen Sansha to defend their land against the Nameless!

The Showdown Effect
game image for The Showdown Effect

The Showdown Effect re-creates the outrageous combat found in '80s and '90s action movies and then takes it one step further.

Champions from throughout time fight to death for fun, for glory and for awesome. Use weaponry pulled straight from the silver screen's unparalleled arsenal: shotguns, baseball bats, assault rifles, umbrellas, grenades, katanas, rocket launchers and more. No explosion is too loud and no bullet dodge is impossible. Impale your friend with a broomstick and tell them to "Stick around" as you jetpack off to the next enemy.

Pre-order by March 4 and receive beta access, a bonus character and weapon skin.
