ED’S LET­TER

Hyper - - CONTENTS -

Can­berra is not the nicest of places. It's cold, flat and so metic­u­lously planned it feels life­less. It's also the home of 2K Aus­tralia, the last AAA stu­dio op­er­at­ing in the coun­try, so there's at least some­thing go­ing for it. I went to Can­berra this month to get some hands on with Border­lands: The Pre-Se­quel, and let me tell you, the fran­chise is in good hands. All the naysay­ers who opined that Gear­box was hand­ing the game off to the B team when they con­tracted 2K Aus to make the game were wrong. It's a tal­ented team and what I played was fan­tas­tic.

It's a busy month. Not only have we been putting to­gether this is­sue, we've also been putting the fin­ish touches on an up­com­ing Hor­ror Spe­cial and work­ing on the soon to be launched web­site. Things are busy in the land of Hy­per, but busy is way bet­ter than bored.

We're also try­ing some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent this month when it comes to re­view­ing MMOs. Giv­ing a score to an MMO af­ter only a few weeks of play is dif­fi­cult, so in­stead of ap­pe­and­ing a score, we're in­stead try­ing mul­ti­ple opin­ions then a sim­ple ad­vi­sory of For­get It, Try It or Life­time Sub. We like it. How about you?

En­joy the is­sue. Daniel Wilks, Edi­tor
