So, Sable looks like it will be my sort of game. Can't wait!
And kudos for that glorious double-page spread showcasing the game's art style.

Yeah, Sable looks really nice, definitely looking forward to that.

If you like its artstyle you might also enjoy Gris which is coming out this year still.

Just posting here to let gamesTM know that I have been a subscriber for nearly a decade and I am ending my subscription.
It has been going downhill in quality and value slowly for years but I am just posting here to let you know that the increasingly left wing political bent has really pushed me to finally end my subscription. Specifically, the "Not Tonight" review was so blatant I am ending my subscription reluctantly at long last.

:?: I wonder if the writer on Not Tonight was the same one that did that stupid PC Kingdome Come Deliverance review.

Yeah the reviews have gone down hill for a while the politics in them are off putting.
Also the better on switch was a pile of crap
Pretty much boiled down to better on switch because hur dur handheld mode, sold more on switch or it uses motion control or the switch is the better console.
The whole thing read like a sponsored advert from Nintendo
Sad to see the magazine go as I've been a reader since issue 30 but this last year I've not really enjoyed it and would of probably stopped buying especially after this issue and all the problems in it

Enjoyed the issue but similarly feel that better on switch feature is poor. Can't help but feel it's a placeholder article due to the closing. They highlight a couple of games that perform or look very poorly compared to the contemporary console. And doesn't factor in that some of them are 3 times the price of their Xbox and PS4 originals.
