IN THE SPOTLIGHT


WE'RE BACK!!!

We're back, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls! It's January 11, 2019 and I'm proud to welcome you to a brand new Big Red Timemachine. And... wait... what? it's the fourteenth?! How the hell did that happen?! Damn you, temporal anomalies! Nevertheless, notwithstanding the mix-up in dates, brand new is exactly the term I will use, because everything, aside from my colleague Dennis sand myself, is new! So let's dive right in!

As you may remember, when last we spoke, our beautiful Big Red HQ was somewhat in tatters. That is why Dennis and I decided to construct a completely new HQ on a different location. Which location, I hear you ask? Well, I'm afraid that I am not quite at liberty to say just yet. We still need to finish installing our security perimeter to keep out unwanted guests. But don't worry, the rest of our HQ is already in full swing!

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Delicious: Emily's True Love I'm pretty sure there a only few people who haven't, at some point in their lives, dreamt of having their own business or to be part of an amazing international long lost love story... or even both! Well, I surely did and I think it's pretty safe to say that more people besides me also did, or still do. If you happen to be one of these people, you should really should go and get your hands on Delicious: Emily's True Love, or any other game in the amazing Emily series, for that matter.

  • Cat Quest This is my absolute favorite time of year. I love Christmas decorations, curling up on my couch with a blanket and tea or hot cacao and, of course, playing a good video game! With the holidays rapidly approaching, I would like to tell you about a game I played this year. It was a thrilling tale of danger, cuteness and a furry hero! One could say it is purrrrfect for the holidays...

  • The Big Red Mess No time travel today, ladies and gentlemen. After the humongous mishaps that took place during the previous two thrilling episodes, the guys are now trying to figure out, in their very own and unique way, where to go from here... Let's see what they're up to shall we?

  • Spotlight: Room Escape Who doesn't like a good escape room once in a while, am I right? Getting locked up with some friends in a room that contains many hidden clues, riddles and other puzzles you must complete (successfully) to escape in time. In The Netherlands, these escape rooms have been growing in popularity over the last few years and are a real hit right now. They even came up with a home version, which I am actually quite anxious to try out for myself.

  • Asterix & Obelix XXL 2 Remastered A long, long time ago, when I was just a tiny Michael, my weekends were mostly filled with cartoons. I grew up with two sisters and a brother, so it was always a challenge to find something on TV that all four kids loved. There was one thing in particular that we all, our parents included, liked to watch and that were the Asterix and Obelix movies.

  • Lucid Dream A couple of weeks ago, on a rainy afternoon, I received a very nice email from Polish independent game studio Dali Games, in which they asked if I would be interested in checking out their latest game, Lucid Dream. I'm always up for new titles created by Indie Developers, so last weekend, on yet another rainy day, I let myself get sucked into the world of Lucid Dream.

  • Hitman 2 It's time to clean your gun, put on your best suit and make sure you have your piano wire ready. Why? Well, we are, once again, going to step into the world of professional assassination. Get ready to pick up Agent 47's story where we left off two years ago. So, as the saying goes: Travel to exciting places, meet interesting people... and kill them. Let's get busy with Hitman 2!

  • Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver Another Friday, another thrilling trip in the Big Red Timemachine! It's me, Sadhonker, freshly back from the hospital, where I resided after my bouncy castle mishap. Now, I still don't know why the seams of my castle ripped clean through without any apparent reason, nor why Dennis was in such a hurry to run off after I was catapulted - quite forcefully, I might add - trough the main hall of our Big Red Timemachine, but hey; at least I got to sue the asses off of the company that constructed said bouncy castle.

  • Battlefield V Back in September of 2002, I fired up my trusty PC to play a game called Battlefield 1942. Now, 5906 days later, I'm doing pretty much the same, only now I'm firing up my PS4 and the game I'm going to play is Battlefield V. Now, don't let the title fool you, this is not the fifth installment in the Battlefield series; it's actually the sixteenth! And after the previous game, Battlefield I, revolved around World War I, Battlefield V puts players in the middle of the second global conflict this world has ever seen: World War II.

  • SNK 40th Anniversary Collection During this year's Gamescom, we had the honor to attend the presentation of NIS America. One of the games showcased there, was the more than impressive SNK 40th Anniversary Collection, filled with classic SNK games from the golden age of gaming! Let's take a look, shall we?
