All our March cover really serves to do is remind us (and possibly you as well) that, even though it’s only March, we could all already do with another vacation. Preferably minus the blood-covered knives and angry men with loud guns. Honestly though, we’ll take anything. Because desperation.
The balance has flipped from reviews to previews, and we go a bit mad with close on a million previews and features to make up for our piddly number of reviews. Let’s get tentacled in The Darkness II, use our heads in NeverDead, memorise some needlessly obtuse combos in The King of Fighters XIII Deluxe Edition and use gyro-assisted aiming on a train in Resident Evil: Revelations. For previews, we dig up all the info we could find on upcoming action RPG Torchlight “OMG my puppy sells thing for me adorable!” II, feel the Left 4 Dead in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and get our survival on in I Am Alive. The Last of Us is Naughty Dog meets I Am Legend, and Kinect Star Wars is George Lucas meets mo’ money. Finally, Alan Wake demands more of your attention in his American Nightmare.
Hardware features some heavy hitters in the form of stuff like Cooler Master’s wonderful COSMOS II and GIGABYTE’s X79-UD7 motherboard (successor to the excellent X58-OC). ASUS melts our faces with their Radeon HD7970 as our Dream Machine is introduced to a number of new suitors.
Don’t forget our eye-popping cover feature on Far Cry 3, which is slightly less brown and a lot more WTF. All this and more awaits you in our March issue, which you’ll be able to get your hands on this Thursday, the 23rd of February.
