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

Welcome back members to the May 2017 edition of RF Generation's Site News!  In this issue, we announce June'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 April. 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 June, Community Playthrough co-hosts, Grayghost81 and singlebanana take you on a platforming adventure whose story is the futuristic re-imagining of an ancient tale. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is one of those well-known, yet underrated gems of the seventh generation. Ninja Theory's expertise in third-person action (most notably for Heavenly Sword and their Devil May Cry reboots) is present here, as well as some of the most memorable characters you are likely to encounter in a video game.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is set 150 years in the future where a global war has ravaged the Earth, destroying most of the human race and leaving the world to be plagued by mechs. Although they are from a bygone era, they are still following their programming and seek to completely eradicate humanity. You play as Monkey, a prisoner aboard a slave ship who manages to escape. He eventually runs into a woman named Trip, who places a slave headband on him, which forces him to follow her orders; if she dies, so does he. Monkey must help Trip return to her village, but during their adventure they face various trials and tribulations.

We hope that you are as excited about this pick as we are, so be sure to grab yourself a copy on the PS3, XBox 360, or the PC today! Also, please join in to discuss the game by signing up on our Enslaved: Odyssey to the West discussion thread located HERE.



Tickets are now on sale for Retro World Expo 2017.  Remember that you can still get in on the Early Bird Special through May 31st, which allows you access to both days of the event for only $35!  Tickets can be purchased HERE.

Also, lots of the tournaments have been announced including: Super Smash Bros., NHL '94, Street Fighter V, WWF No Mercy, Mario Kart 64, NBA Jam T.E., Overwatch, League of Legends, Mortal Kombat II, Tetris & Dr. Mario, and Super Street Fighter II.  A brief description of these events can be found HERE.  Be sure to look for more tournaments to be added in the future!

Great game for June!! Loved Enslaved.

Also loving the DIO love lately Rich!! Rock on!!
@Crabmaster2000:  Yeah, I figured you would appreciate the Dio.
I'll be joining the June play through.
Ooh, I've had a copy of Enslaved sitting on my shelf for a few years now, waiting for an excuse to get played. Course, I said that last month and didn't play as much Child of Light as I expected to...
@Addicted:@zophar53:  Sign up on the thread boys. Wink
Retro World Expo, its a 12 hour Road trip for me, is it worth it ?
@douglie007:  I can't really comment, since it is really the only convention that I have ever been to. However, I had a blast the 1st year and it's not only the event, but the other members from here that make it really special and such a great time.  I have heard from others, such as Pam and Will, that it is one of the best events that they have ever been to.  And from what I recall, they enjoyed it more than MagFest.  Lots of vendors, live music, great panels, an arcade, an awesome auction, and good friends. Personally, I wouldn't miss it.
@singlebanana: its the week of my Birthday, I want to come I need to see what my wife says.  maybe we need to get a block of hotel rooms

RWX was amazing. It was totally work the trip from Canada for me.
It's an 11 hour drive for me to RWX. Worth it.
@Duke.Togo: was it really that long. Just flew by. Must have been the awesome company.
@douglie007: I haven't been before, and it's about a 9 hour drive for me as well, so I'm using the opportunity to tack on a day or two to the front or back to see a couple places I've always wanted to on the way. I'm stopping in Hershey, PA and NYC. So if you can I'd recommend doing that and getting the most bang for your travel buck.
