Re:

Although you could see the floor layout, you couldn't see any other droids unless they were in your line of sight though But that did mean you could see in front and behind you. That said, there's no reason why you couldn't have a multi-view version, showing the "3D" and overhead "classic" view sim...

Re:

Paradroid, 'nuff said. It would actually work very well in a full-on 3D version with a first-person perspective. That's been mooted by many in the past, but I've always utterly failed to see how a de-facto 3D Paradroid could work, because so much of the gameplay mechanic required you to be able to ...

Well, I knew that short of smacking Markie repeatedly over the head with a think plank, he was always going to come up with something good. This cover looks smart and sophisticated—like a grown-up version of the old mag, although not quite so grown-up that it needs a pipe and slippers. Short of th...
