If one word encapsulates PC gaming's might during the 1990s, it's "Interplay." And maybe "Blizzard" or "Valve." OK, so a lot of words work. Still, the memory-generating might of the pack of 32 DRM-free Interplay games offered by GOG is probably the best trip back to a time when the internet was a fad and knowing your exact baud rate propelled you to the highest tier of your school's social hierarchy. Best of all: You pay what you want.
Bioware's sequel to one of the strangest games ever made is getting a HD reboot. Space janitor turned war suited saviour of humanity, Kurt Hectic returns, this time accompanied by a six legged talking dog and and mad scientist Dr. (not Steven) Hawkins. The rebooted version will feature revamped textures, new art, improved lighting and rebuilt particle effects created by some of the original MDK2 devs. We spoke to Overhaul Games’ Trent Oster about putting the HD into MDK2 HD. It will be released this Wednesday October 12 exclusively on digital distribution platform, Beamdog.
