DISC SLOT: MARTIN WAHLUND
They make the games we love, but what do they play for fun? We ask developers to pick their faves from Xbox history. This month: Martin Wahlund
I have spent a lot of time with the original Gears Of
War . I obviously enjoyed playing co-op with a friend. The over-the-top characters, and naturally the chainsaw, are great aspects of the game. I am now excited about the fifth game that was announced at the most recent E3, and for where the journey leads. Bionic Commando Rearmed  is another game that I enjoyed a lot. Visually it looked great, it was fast, and the gameplay was pretty hectic for a platformer. We worked closely with the team that created it at Grin. The Challenge Rooms should be called the Impossible Rooms! I have also played a lot of the Dragon Age  games and enjoy them a lot. Of all of them I probably enjoyed the first one the most. Also, who doesn’t love a great RPG and the evolution of relationships between your party members? Vin Diesel’s Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay  is a game I was really impressed by. As a Swede, I was proud that it was developed in Sweden, for starters. It’s one of many games that I had a hard time stopping playing, as I just wanted to play a bit more, and then a bit more still. I liked the combination of stealth and FPS action. I love soccer, and I played in a minor league until recently. FIFA  is a perfect game to bring out when friends come over, or to play with your kids. My six-year-old son asked if the World Cup games we watch on television are real soccer or FIFA. That is how far the series has come.
