Where is the cover?

Also holy shit at Super Mario Maker score. I didn't follow the game and thought it is a shitty "RPG maker"-like indie title. Guess I was 100% wrong!

It mentions "the version of Crackdown we played" so it seems so.

Some observations:

The digital paint concept sounds interesting, it seems any surface can be used to communicate with players.

Players can tunnel under the city and dig holes in the ground. The scale of this isn't yet fixed.

The single player / non-cloud version tones down the possible city destruction.

Also, you need to coerce the bosses out of hiding instead of heading straight for them in pursuit of a fight.

Something about that picture is really funny to me. Not sure why, he just looks like a typical IT guy or something doing the brooding face down eyes up pose. :p

Anyways, this game is looking awesome so far. May have to get an XB1 for it (among others).

Surprised by the scores for Tearaway Unfolded and Lovers... guess they just didn't click with them.

Also that person on the cover looks eerily like Jeff Bakalar.

Please have a tunnelling drill vehicle ! Please!

Non cloud?

Huh...so there's an offline mode?

As mentioned in the other EDGE 285 thread, you can order the Edge Special Edition: The 100 Greatest Videogames here : https://www.myfavouritemagazines.co.uk/gaming-guides-and-specials/edge-special-edition-the-top-100-videogames/

The price is £11.99/€18.99/$20.99 but the discount code DIGISUB gets you -£5/-€5/-$5 !
Surprised no one on GAF has posted the top 100 yet. Flicked through it in a newsagents today and I expect a lot of Miyazaki fans here on GAF will be very happy with the results.

It is a really dull, lazy special edition for £12 though. Probably no one wants to buy it.

Bloodborne and Dark Souls (their number 1) in the top 5 makes me happy. :)

I bought it. Haven't received it yet, but I think Edge's write-ups are in the best in the business and a list is meaningless without them. Looking forward to reading it.

Not sure I'm gonna pick this one up. I know there's a coupon floating around. When the art of video games special came out there was a retail coupon for £5 off but dunno if they're doing that again.

I really really dislike the new MC, why change it lol ? the previous one was way better, it must be really confusing for people who doesn't follow games like we do... whatever, can't wait for the coverage, might bite on it, one of my most anticipated game on Xbox, can't wait.

Is the magazine out yet? Can't someone post what are the news about Quantum Break? Love some Remedy goodness.
