All that talk of an MMO-like Fallout has got us in the mood for a post-apocalyptic adventure, so editor Chris has gone back to the enormous Fallout 4 (p86). Can he remember what he was doing since his last save two years ago, or will he be hopelessly lost? Either way, we can expect plenty of death and destruction. Always a good way to spend a day. We’re also looking back to a true classic with Prince
Of Persia: Sands Of Time (p88) on the original Xbox, thanks to backwards compatibility. Does it still hold up, or is it better off left in the past? Next we’re sticking to the shadows and hiding in plain sight with Why I Love Shadow Mode in Shadow
Tactics on p92. One of those things we love is how it gets the feeling of being a ninja so right. With the
OXM team stuck in a heatwave right now, we can’t decide if we should become ninjas ourselves—it definitely would be much cooler sticking to the shady spots, but maybe being dressed head-to-toe in black will cancel that out. Finally, we’re making some furry (and scaly) friends in our top 10 list of the
best animal companions in Xbox history (p94). Who needs humans to travel with when you party with a bear, mountain lion, or even a llama? Not us, we get along just fine only talking to creatures that can’t talk back. We’re not lonely... honest.
