Welcome dear readers to week 20 of 2013, and our weekly snippets – straight from the Metro. This week, Peter is mistrustful towards EA, Thomas is enjoying that summer has finally arrived (read: he’s absent) and Dave? Well, he’s got a beef to pick with EA and Nintendo at the same time! Did any of that make sense? It will after you’ve read our picks!
Ok, time for a new semi-regular segment here at Gaming Momentum. I don’t complete too many games, but I do play a lot of them. As such, I have found often the first play session of a new game to be the most interesting part of the entire experience. The game world and mechanics are brand new and are still unveiling themselves to the player, most developers put a lot of time into the first hour to hook the player, and a lot of games fall into a mechanical rut of filler past their opening sequences. These are all reasons why paying attention to the start of a game is so fascinating (especially for games you decide not to return to).
