Taking the opportunity for a hype post, then. Here's what to expect from the forthcoming issue of Resolution, available for FREE!!! online from Monday 2nd March.
- Reviews of FEAR 2, Cryostasis, Necrovision, ShellShock 2, Big Bang Mini, Spelunky, The Last Remnant, Flower, an exclusive (!!!!) verdict on The Path, and (hopefully) a mammoth take on Dawn of War II (if the code arrives in time to play it enough before deadline!)
- Hands-on experience of Resident Evil 5!
- A look at the forthcoming DS addition to the GTA franchise, Chinatown Wars!
- A look back at the most frustrating games ever, and moments that had us banging our heads against the table in anger!
- A look back at the history of survival horror!
- Some ponderings on what makes a good horror game, and what developers can do to increase the fear factor in this generally underwhelming horror climate!
- An interview with Vince D Weller about upcoming RPG The Age of Decadence, his reputation as games development's Angry Man, and the state of modern role-playing games!
- An interview with Dan Pinchbeck about his new game Korsakovia (with exclusive - !!!! - new screenshots), Dear Esther's emotional impact, and games in serious academia!
- 16-Bit Boy's monthly retro ramblings!
- Fewer exclamation marks than you might think!!!!!
AND AS IF THAT WEREN'T ENOUGH...
A bit of an experiment in digital broadcasting! On Saturday evening, Lewis Denby (that's me, folks), J.D. Richardson and Andy Johnson will be gathering around a microphone, beer in hand, to talk about the new issue, what's going on in games, what we've been playing this month, and other such malarkey. Expect also insults about each other's mothers, and implications that various parties are an array of horrible things. This "podcast", so they're apparently called, will be available from the Reso site on Sunday and, if people like it, we might have to do another next time.

Man, I hope you plug this site as much as you do that one.
PS: You forgot to highlight the biggest reason for checking the newest edition out.

Which reminds me I need to write a Flower review sometime soon.
And hey, one of those articles is mine, so make sure you all read it! I know you're all Zipp fanboys, right? RIGHT?

"Man, I hope you plug this site as much as you do that one."
Funnily enough, Reso links back to HG on a couple of occasions this month.
