Since I’ve managed to tear myself away to watch Manchester United v Barcelona, I thought I’d post my thoughts on the game so far.

  • The graphics are a lot better and character models a lot more detailed than the trailers showed;
  • Car physics are brilliant, each one handles differently to the next;
  • The Euphoria engine is a complete joy to watch in action, especially if you crash on a motorbike;
  • Targeting, while still a bit iffy, is better than previous games;
  • Classic GTA humour is better than ever, particularly the advertising boards and radio commercials;
  • Sheer sense of scale is astonishing;
  • Far too bloody dark in places!

I’ve yet to try out the multiplayer, will hopefully get some of that done tomorrow.

Ghostbusters etc. Some new info on the game has trickled out. It is set 2 years after the 2nd film and you play the role of a newly recruited member of the team. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, the writers of the original film, are writing the storyline. The characters are voiced by the cast from the previous films and the original Ray Parker Jr. classic theme song will feature, along with 75 minutes of unused tracks from the original soundtrack. Its due out on all the consoles this Autumn and Eurogamer have a nice preview here. Looks interesting but can it beat Luigi’s Mansion as the best ghost-busting game around?

I must admit, ever since I saw the first trailer I haven’t really liked Niko, but after seeing this one I’ve really warmed to him. A lot better than SHOUTY CJ anyway.

Officially announced here on Nintendo’s UK website. Good to see the utter shambles that is Nintendo of Europe finally pulling their fingers out of their arses, thats 5 months after Japan and 3 months after the US. Better late than never I suppose.

Hinted at for months, and damn near confirmed in the latest IGN Nintendo Voice Chat podcast. If rumours are to be believed it is being developed by Factor 5, who’s last game game on a Nintendo console was Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3: Rebel Strike. Expect an announcement of some sort at E3.

Next time you perform “maintenance”, do it properly so that I can actually log onto the very service I am paying you for. Thanks.

So many Zelda intros to choose from bit this is probably my favourite. I just love the way the camera pans up to the Wind Fish egg on top of the mountain and the classic Zelda theme kicks in.
