VGH #61: Man in a Vent Shaft

Sony’s purchase of cloud-gaming company Gaikai has us wondering about the future of shiny plastic discs. Also: THQ’s near-cancellation of The Devil’s Third gets us talking about some potentially good games that never saw the light of day.

In the Hangover, we offer a quick update on our Summer Backlog Project, survive The Walking Dead: Starved for Help and the tap to the beat of Final Fantasy: Theatrhythm.

Lastly, we’ve got your Tweets and comments, a reminder to set your DVR for the new season of Breaking Bad, a celebration of 25 years of Metal Gear, and a fun foodie recommendation.

    Flashback was awesome. Between that Another World and my first love Shadow of the Beast it pushed the boundaries of graphical greatness and intriguing story telling (in the 16bit era).

      Good call, I should have described it as similar to Another World/Out of this World… that’s another game that totally doesn’t play how it looks. (I died a lot of times figuring that out.)
