In the game for T

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

HE first doors on the ad­vent cal­en­dars have been opened, and the tasty cho­co­late hid­den be­hind have been de­voured. And as Santa pre­pares his pre-flight checks, we take a look at the hand­ful of games hit­ting con­soles very early this month.

There’s a fresh Just Cause out­ing, Hello Neigh­bor gets a pre­quel, and Plays­ta­tion fans can en­joy a wave of nos­tal­gia as the clas­sic con­sole gets a makeover. BAT­TLE some of the cutest robots you’ve ever seen and ‘mech’ (see what I did there) a name for your­self in this gi­ant brawler. Each 80-sec­ond bat­tle takes place in dif­fer­ent cities which you can lay waste to as you mar­malise your op­po­nent. There’s a roster of 12 mechs, each with their own fight­ing styles and fin­ish­ing moves – and you can cus­tomise your gi­ant ro­bot to add your own style and flair. Along­side the solo cam­paign, you can play in lo­cal co-op with up to four friends, or go on­line for more mul­ti­player fun. With the 3D lo­ca­tions mapped on real cities how­ever, you will get a pang of guilt when you flat­ten a na­tional land­mark.. THIS gor­geous look­ing in­die game fol­lows the jour­ney of young knight in train­ing Made­lyn, and her ghostly pet dog Fritzy.

Start­ing life as a Kick­starter, teaser trail­ers show the game giv­ing off a se­ri­ous Ghosts’ N Goblins vibe, as THE evil and mys­te­ri­ous mus­ta­chioed neigh­bour is back in this grue­some, and oddly touch­ing pre­quel. Hide and Seek looks at the events that hap­pened to the neigh­bour’s fam­ily, that lead to him be­com­ing the sin­is­ter recluse we’ve all come to love/hate.

Hello Neigh­bor was the sur­prise hor­ror hit of 2017, hav­ing gained an al­most cult fol­low­ing on its ad­dic­tive al­pha re­lease.

Part The Burbs, Part Rear Win­dow, you have to break into your neigh­bour’s house to un­cover the se­cret hid­den in his base­ment.

The clever AI means the neigh­bour mod­i­fies his ac­tions based on your game­play, mean­ing you have to al­ter your tac­tics ev­ery time you ven­ture over the road, or end up as a bump in the turf.

Def­i­nitely a game to keep your eye on.
