Weekly News Roundup Issue #65 – The folk at SquareEnix certainly have a sense of humour

A particular line in the original FFVIII has been regurgitated by the internet. As we know, back in the 90’s videogames weren’t quite as pretty as they are today.

Weekly News Roundup Issue #65 – Bombshell kicks ass in Ion Fury!

If you grew up with the likes of the original DOOM games, Shadow Warrior and Duke Nukem, Ion Fury could be your next favourite. This old school style shooter uses the same engine as those golden oldies from the early 90’s. Only it’s the smoothest most beautifully animated rendition of the engine we’ve ever seen.

If you’re fan of shooters, you’ll want to check this one out.
