Spawn Point: a guide to spectacle fighters

Welcome back to Spawn Point, where we take something wonderful from the world of gaming and explain what it is, why it’s worth your time and how to get involved. This time, we look at “Spectacle Fighters”, or “Character Action Games” if you like your genre names vague and uselessly ambiguous. What’s so spectacular about these fighters, then?

Have You Played… Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. The dawning of a year means a little more of what was once the near-future is now the present.

Replaying Revengeance: Difficulty, Mastery And Fighting

One of the downsides of being a games journalist (violins please) is that you don't play many games that aren't also 'work.'

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Revenges On PC

The news infiltrators of Joystiq have blown cigarette smoke over the laser-beams of the internet to reveal that a Hideo Kojima podcast contains the enigmatic announcement that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be coming to PC. This has apparently been confirmed by some kind of senior chat at Platinum Games. "I am excited to see Rising hit the PC," he says. Well, us too, twitter…
