Welcome back to the Game People podcast, my name is Paul Govan and I write the Family Gamer Section. Today I'm joined by Mark Clapham and Sinan Kubba.

We'll be talking about the game in detail so be aware we may give a few things away if you've not finished it yet.

Videogame Podcast Guests

Andy Robertson appears in this podcast. "Videogame reviews for the whole family, not just the kids. I dig out videogame experiences to intrigue and interest grownups and children. This is post-hardcore gaming where accessibility, emotion and storytelling are as important as realism, explosions and bravado."

Sinan Kubba appears in this podcast. "As an 80s kid I was obsessed with gaming. But university, stress and life relegated my hobby to the backseat. After years in the wilderness, I'm back into video games. I don't just want to play games that remind of a happy youth though. I'm just as excited about games that take things forward, experiences that re-ignite that curiosity and fascination I had years ago."

Rebecca Mayes appears in this podcast. "Recently I jumped into that black hole and found myself lost in a place I don't understand. It is a place full of spectacle and phenomena which feeds my imagination. In many ways I represent all the people who know nothing about games, who are uninspired and uninterested in games."

Mark Clapham appears in this podcast. "I love a good story. Games tell many different stories: the stories told through cut scenes and dialogue, but also the stories that emerge through gameplay, the stories players make for themselves."

perhaps the most obvious way in which games are becoming like films, to return (briefly) to that whole thorny hornets' nest, is the relative prevalence of sequels/prequels/reboots over and against novel, non-franchised titles (in the upper strata, at least)... read now

Assassin's Creed Revelations 360 sees Ezio getting older, and the series itself seems to be showing signs of age. Although Revelations feels a little tired in places, it still provides satisfying closure for Ezio and Altair's stories... read now

Assassin's Creed Revelations packs in the kitchen sink, but somehow gets away with it. The campaign may struggle to maintain attention with so much else to do, but in terms of variety this is the series' Piece de resistance... read now

With so many different perspectives it can be hard to know where to start - a little like walking into a crowded pub. Sorry about that.

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.

What sort of gamer are you?

Our columnists each focus on a particular perspective and fall into one of the following types of gamers:
