I am honestly surprised we haven’t seen anything from Gex in quite some time, but thankfully, Crystal Dynamics are bringing over Gex: Deep Cover Gecko as of today on the Playstation Network in Europe. Now if you lived under a rock in the 90’s, Gex was the equivalent of Mario for the 3DO and was later ported to the Sega Saturn and the original Playstaion. In this third entry in the series which was released on the Nintendo 64, Playstation, and the Game Boy Color, and players take control of the gecko as he set off on a mission to save Agent Xtra who has been kidnapped by Gex’s arch nemesis, Rez.
The Gex series is also known for it’s many pokes at pop-culture as well as the lizard’s many one-liners, which may or may not be a bit dated by today’s standards, but still should prove to be a blast of nostalgia for those who have fond memories of the original. Gex: Deep Cover Gecko is now available in the PSN for £7.99 / €9.99. Now if we can just get a sequel (looking at you, Crystal Dynamics ;))
