Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Editorials
Decades ago, while we were playing games we literally damaged our eyes by glancing at the TV screen from close distance because of a short length of the controllers' cables. Today we have wireless gamepads and much larger screens, and yet we still have to sit at a minimum distance from the TV to play comfortably, as there is a fashion for the use of microscopic fonts among the game developers.
We gamers complain a lot. If a game doesn’t move in new directions – we’re disappointed at the lack of innovation and rant about how spoiled the industry is. If a game makes a 180-degree turn – we’re bewildered and immediately start ranting about how the old days were better and how the industry’s now spoiled, and oh-my-god-my-fav-game-was-trodden. It all may come down to respect though; respect to the players and to the franchise – especially in cases of games such as Wolfenstein; games that defined the genre when it was still a malleable and shapeless pulp of ideas. After trying out the game for the second time (now without an awful lot of bugs – which always helps), we’re bound to admit: yes, no change is a good change.
Dog days of summer are here, and the slow news is flooding the channels. Except for ours.

We’ve got RPG, FPS, MMO, TCG, including several sequels, prequels, spin-offs and turn-ons on our list of the most anticipated games of the second half of 2017.
