TheGamer’s Best Features Of The Week: Pokemon Master Ash, Max Payne, And Atreus

Happy Thursday, folks. After a busy week of reveals, hot topics, news, and more, it's time to take a look back at TheGamer's best features of the week.

Some of the pieces we've got for you this week include taking a look back at Max Payne following the announcement of a remake, imagining what an Atreus-led God of War game would look like, and coming to terms with the fact that Ash might be well on his way to becoming a Pokemon master.

Max Payne Is The Greatest Action Game Ever Made

Max Payne fans, rejoice! Just yesterday, Remedy announced that it was teaming up with Rockstar Games to remake the first two entries in the series in one package. To celebrate, Rockstar expert and features editor Andy Kelly took a look back at the original Max Payne and how things like bullet time and Max's characterisation make it one of the best action games ever made.

Tomb Raider Needs To Hurry Up And Give Lara Croft A Girlfriend Already

Tomb Raider fans, rejoice also! After the release of Unreal Engine 5, Crystal Dynamics confirmed that its next Tomb Raider game will be made with Epic's most powerful engine. In response, lead features editor Jade King started looking to the future and what she wants most – a girlfriend for Lara Croft. Considering the Tomb Raider reboot trilogy almost had her and Sam get together, it's just a matter of time.

After God Of War Ragnarok, Atreus Needs To Lead The Series

Next up, we have TheGamer's editor-in-chief Stacey Henley who argues that Atreus needs to take the lead for whatever comes next after God of War Ragnarok. From the moment we found out that Atreus is actually Loki, it seemed a whole lot more likely that Ragnarok is setting up for him to be the series' new lead. Let's just hope Kratos doesn't meet a nasty end for that to happen.

Ash Is This Close To Finally Becoming A Pokemon Master

Next up we have features editor and Umbreon stan Eric Switzer taking a look at Pokemon Journeys, and how the current arc makes it seem very likely that Ash is going to finally become a Pokemon Master and possibly end his journey for good. Can Leon really take on Pikachu, Dragonite, Gengar, Lucario, Sirfetch’d, and Dracovish alongside all Ash has learnt up till now? No, no he can't.

Would A Battle Royale Have Saved Halo Infinite?

Finally, amidst a week full of Halo news, features editor Ben Sledge takes a look at how Halo Infinite is currently doing and wonders whether a battle royale mode would have even made that much of a difference. Ben argues that with 6,446 players on Steam last month, it looks like Infinite is losing its community fast thanks to slow updates, and having something that needs constant changes like a battle royale would likely have only made it worse.
