Our big feature this week is an comprehensive look at all things Wolfenstein. It covers both the original stealth computer games, and the bigger FPS series which shared the name. We also have a big feature on the SeaQuest DSV games - that's right, based on the TV show. Despite obscurity they're rather interesting, and we've got interview answers from three members involved with development.
In addition we have smaller pieces on Nowhere, a surprisingly creepy Mobile Phone game which disproves the notion that phones don't have any excellent games. There's also a look at hori-shmup BlaZeon, for both the arcade and its SNES port. If you've still got an urge for shmups there's our continuing look at those available on iOS. The mini-interview of the week in our ongoing Metal Gear series is with Richard Ham, the father of the Syphon Filter series. As it turns out, there were more similarities to MGS than anyone realised!
This week there's a change of plan for Your Weekly Kusoge, with an enitre article dedicated to Shaq Fu, that group of awful beat-em-ups released on several systems, which tried to combine Shaquille O'Neal with Mortal Kombat, but didn't quite work. The spotlight article is Rhythm Heaven, since the newest entry came out in North America a few weeks back for the Wii.
