Posted under News, thank you, Playthrough, Syberia, RWX

Welcome back friends to the April 2017 edition of RF Generation's Site News!  In this issue, we announce May's community playthrough game, provide you with the latest info for Retro World Expo 2017, and of course, thank those members who sent in submissions to our site and registered approvals during the month of March. Thanks for tuning in to this edition of the Site News!     

REMEMBER: If you have any news about upcoming events or topics that you think the site needs to hear about, please PM singlebanana and put "RFG Site News" in the subject line.  Who knows, maybe your news will make our front page!


This May, join co-hosts singlebanana and Grayghost81 for an emotional and visually captivating point-and-click adventure. During the month of May, the Community Playthrough takes you across Central and Eastern Europe, with the semi-realistic/surrealistic narrative known as Syberia.  Released in 2002 and available in various formats, this game received high praise and strong reviews during its time.  So far, only a sequel, Syberia II has been released, but a third installment, Syberia III is slated for release at the end of this month. What better way to get your feels going then to dig out and play the original again, or in many cases, for the first time, with an incredible community of gamers! 

In Syberia you play as a young, American lawyer named Kate Walker who has been sent to a quaint French village to finalize the take-over of a toy factory. Once in the village, Kate is informed that the old lady who owned the factory has died and that she must seek out her next of kin, a brother who lives on the remote and fantastical island of Syberia. This game was praised by critics for its graphic design and contains elements of both art nouveau and steampunk fiction. Most devices and tools within the game's world (including a train) are powered by springs and wind-up gears. However, the majority of accolades regarding Syberia come from its well-written and poignant script. Our protagonist not only goes on a physical journey, but a spiritual one that has been known to cause introspection in many gamers.

We hope that you are as excited about this pick as we are!  Please join us by signing up on our Syberia discussion thread located HERE.

Syberia is available on Xbox, 360, PS2, PS3, PC, and several mobile devices.



Tickets are now on sale for Retro World Expo 2017.  Right now you can get in on the Early Bird Special, which allows you access to both days of the event for only $35!  However, you will need to act quickly, since this deal is only good through May 31st.  On June 1st, the price will increase to $40 and on October 1st, the price goes up to $45.  Once again, it appears that many of our RF Generation community members will be attending the show, so this is one event and hangout that you will not want to miss!  Tickets can be purchased HERE.

Also, be sure to say tuned to the RWX website as there will be a list of all the video game tournaments posted some time next week!

Thinking about Siberia (it's a tight month Sad )
@Kam1Kaz3 NL77:  According to howlongtobeat.com, it's only 10-12 hours long. Smiley
I'm excited to start making plans for RWX this year. I'm curious if the community can offer any advice as far as travel and lodging options based on their experience. Driving vs flying in, rental car vs uber, hotel vs airbnb vs possibly bunking with another community member, things like that. Anyone have any tips? Or should I just shut up and wait for the obligatory RWX 2017 forum thread to go up lol?
@zophar53:  Ask, and you shall receive: http://www.rfgeneration.com/forum/index.php?topic=17677.msg248244#msg248244
@singlebanana: Nice lol, thanks!
