IGN has posted the following:
  • NBA '08 Free6 Tutorial Video (PS3)

PSX Extreme has posted their preview of NHL 08.
"You’ll have to actually develop offensive game plans that require precision passing, taking defensemen out of position, and a variety of shots on goal. Because you won’t be able to net an easy score on breakaways all day long, you’ll have to set up an offense that might actually mirror that of a real-life hockey team. That’s right, team play will be a requirement in the face of this ramped up artificial intelligence. Furthermore, you can deke and pass all you want, but if you keep repeating the same tactic over and over, the AI will pick up on that and adapt accordingly. If you’re making a lot of long passes back and forth across the ice, the other team might fall back into a zone in an attempt to pick them off “in transit.” If one of your stars is lighting things up, he might soon find himself looking down the business end of a double-team. And it doesn’t end there, either; the AI will also recognize specific game situations- power plays, time running out with a certain number of timeouts left,
yanking the goalie for a 6-man attack, etc. Overall, this appears to be one sports title that won’t give anything away."

Eurogamer has posted their first impressions of WWE Smackdown Vs. Raw 2008.
"So, let's take a look at what the "hardcore" experience will offer, on both PS3 and 360. As you would probably expect, the game has received a complete graphical overhaul for this year's edition, and, while the models don't look that much more spectacular than those found in 2007, there has been a noticeable improvement in the overall lighting quality, and the switch to a more complicated shader routine. However, by far the biggest improvement to Smackdown's overall aesthetics comes with the brand spanking new animation system, which makes your wrestlers move, run and grimace in pain just like a real wrestler would."

TVG has posted their hands on preview of SEGA Rally.
"Despite the increased emphasis on complexities such as tyre compounds, SEGA Rally retains its arcade heritage with a racing experience that is fast and frenzied. Handling seems a lot closer to Colin McRae then old-school SEGA Rally, lacking the outlandish jumps and replacing the brake/accelerate powerslides with cars that literally turn on the spot. Later stages in the game appear to notch up the difficulty with opponents that aren't fixated on the traditional racing line, but ensuring that there's no way for you to pass. Hopefully, there's still work left on the collisions between vehicles, as these feel a little hit-and-miss at this stage despite panel-scratching action being a frequent occurrence."

I taught Nat how to tie her shoes last night. It only took me 5 minutes, she picks up on things so quickly.

Me and BK played a very sloppy Madden 08 league game last night. I won 21-10, but oh my was it sloppy.

The more I study for this final exam, the more confident I think I can pass it this weekend. Hopefully, I can squeeze in a little more study time during the week, if not, it's going to have to wait until next week.

What's up with you?

PSX Extreme has posted their preview of DiRT.
"Immediately what you can notice from the demo is that the absurdly bright bloom lighting has been toned down to a much more acceptable, and realistic level. No more will you be blinded by a burst of orange and yellow reflecting off the surface, rendering your judgment of the road ahead impaired."

Xboxic has posted some screenshots of PES 2008.
"Certainly a very different approach from Konami this year, with a lot more focus on the pre-match setup. The interface is lovely; it’s shiny and it looks considerably more functional than last year’s weak offering."
