Up for the Crack(down)!
It feels like we’ve been excitedly awaiting this month’s cover game for ages. The Xbox exclusive
Crackdown series hasn’t been seen since 2010, and frankly we’ve missed Terry Crews. We’ve also been optimistically including Crackdown3 on just about every OXM calendar since forever, almost trying to wish it into existence that year. Imagine our excitement when Microsoft offered to fly us out to Washington State to get hands-on with this much anticipated sequel! Find out everything we know about the year’s first big Xbox exclusive from page 44! Elsewhere this month, OXM Investigates the origins of the Metroidvania genre of videogames, and we round up some of our favourites on Xbox. We also speak to Hitman2 devs IO Interactive for our Big Interview. There are tons of previews and reviews too, so don’t let me keep you. Crack on!
Chris Burke Editor Chris has been putting in so many hours on RedDeadOnline this month (ten-hour sessions are, apparently, common) that it may, or may not, have caused the electricity cables in his street to blow. There’s now a huge hole in front of his driveway. Really.
