With us only just easing out of the vice-like grip of a "deep freeze", or "awesome snowman building time!",as we like to call it here in the Thirteen1 office, everybody can be forgiven for still carrying a little Christmas cheer this late in January.
And why not? Q1 2010 is finally here! When you see the fantastic calendar of upcoming games, it's easy to find something to get excited about. This is going to be like Christmas round 2, only with better presents, less socks, and no need to buy anything for anybody else. Bring it on!
Considering the barrage of gaming goodness we're about to be battered with, we figured the perfect way to start the year would be a nice, handy round-up of the 13 games we're looking forward to the most. We all know that Q1 2010 is going to be a time for wise purchases, so this should help.
Of course no self-respecting games publication can end a decade of gaming without looking back on it, so we have a, sure to be controversial, countdown of the best games of the Naughties. This was hard to choose..almost too hard. Be sure to check which game we voted the best of the entire decade![snip]
Following the recent merging of browser-based goliath's Wizard Productions (formerly Go3 Media), we decided to take to the streets of Mafia Corruption, their top free2play mafia MMO, to see what all the fuss about. Check out our review to discover why our browser-based expert thinks this ranks as one of the best on the market.
We also decided to use January to cover a few games you might not be too familiar with, such as the unique Eufloria and Quest Online's nifty, brand new free2play MMO, Alganon.
Fancy a proper scare? Then look no further than Jonathan Boakes' top horror adventure game, Dark Fall:Lost Souls. We've been eager to get hands-on with the sequel to the spooky Dark Fall:Lights Out ever since it was announced, and we finally get to review it right here in the January issue of Thirteen1. What a perfect way to follow up our interview with Mr. Boakes in the December issue. We did review from it behind the couch, mind.
The DrunkenGamer has also been at it again, stumbling from one top title to another with a drink and computer mouse in hand. This month, the self-confessed 'trekkie' finally got the chance to go hands-on with the beta of Star Trek Online. Does it really have what it takes to please both fans of the series and hardcore MMO gamers?
While taking a break from tackling the depths of space in his spaceship, the Drunken Gamer also got invited back to Frogsters swashbuckling Bounty Bay Online..he wasn't allowed to take his spaceship, though.
We have part 2 of the cracking Beyond the Horizon tour, along with a handful of rare pets to giveaway too!
Comps and Giveaways
Along with the rare Reaper Pet giveaway in association with Bounty Bay Online, we also have 5 copies of Torchlight straight from the Runic Games office, one of our games of the year!
Of course, we also have the regular retro-gaming blow out, courtesy of our good friends at Gog.com.
