Hello. We seem to have missed an October update, which I’m sure had retro gamers the world around in a state of loss and despair. But to try and make up for it here are two reviews.

One sticks to familiar FFG ground – that is, first person shooters. I’ve had a look at the Doom-powered Heretic, featuring a fantasy setting and magic fireballs.

On the other hand Rik has ventured onto new ground – fighting games. It’s new to us cos, frankly, there wasn’t a lot out there that wasn’t a console port. And while we might review the odd such port, there’s a limit to how many times we want to end with “better on the Megadrive”. But for a rare PC-native title, take a look at One Must Fall 2097.
