FIFA 17 PS4 EA reckons The Journey, FIFA 17’ s singleplayer story mode, wouldn’t have been possible before FIFA’s move to the Frostbite engine, since only now can it render things that aren’t football stadiums. Having played through our debut season as Alex Hunter, we can see what it was getting at, but couldn’t that processing grunt have been put to more creative use than all these dressing rooms and training pitches? Perhaps the drunken threesome in a Berkshire Holiday Inn comes in FIFA 18. Stardew Valley PC Eric Barone’s sweetly meditative country-life sim may not have struck quite the same chord with some as it did with PC-only players, but that’s a question of novelty; this sort of game has been part of console owners’ lives for decades, after all. But despite its obvious influences, Stardew Valley has an identity all its of own, and when the console versions finally appear, we may not be able to resist falling back in. Really Bad Chess iPhone Controversial game designer Dave Sirlin once had the gall to make a game called Chess 2 which, he claimed, would fix the flaws inherent in the sport of kings. Zach Gage takes the opposite tack, taking chess and purposely ruining it. Our current ranked-match game saw us start with seven bishops and three queens, while our CPU opponent had seven pawns. Things even up as you progress until, eventually, your foe gets the god-mode treatment while you suffer with the scraps. A delightfully subversive spin on the original classic.
