Enough about me, what's up with you?
"Overall, Super Mario Strikers is a decent arcade soccer game with too little Mario. The developers could have put considerably more Mario-elements into the game other than the characters and the title. If youíve enjoyed past Mario sports games, or youíre a fan of soccer, youíll most likely enjoy this game, although Iíd only recommend it as a rental. If you donít fall into those two categories, this game should probably be avoided."
"What we have in WRC: Rally Evolved is a superb rally game. I've thought long and hard about the score and decided that the shorter, less-epic stages mean I can't give it nine, which WRC4 deserves. For new players to the series, WRC: Rally Evolved is the game to get - the handling is the best in the series and the game's driver aids will help you get into things, you'll also enjoy the exciting stages. For owners of WRC4, I'd still recommend this new game, just don't trade in your old game for it. Well done Evolution Studios, another great game from the company, I can't wait to see WRC arrive on PlayStation 3."
"Major League Baseballģ 2K6 brings you the definitive baseball simulation. With a truly immersive pitcher-batter showdown featuring the most accurate pitching and batting A.I. ever created, Major League Baseball 2K6 delivers the true Big League experience like never before."
"THQ released this giant 3D image of MotoGP 2006. I've zipped it, but you need Quick Time to view it correctly. The release date is set to 31th of march."
Eurogamer: "What do you see as OutRun 2006's strengths relative to the great many other arcade racing games on the market, such as Need For Speed and Burnout?"
Team: "The OutRun franchise is one of the most famous racing brands in the world and many of its strengths come from its arcade background. The game is designed to be instantly playable but also have that 'just one more go' feel as you're sure you'll do better next time. Surprisingly to some, the game has many hidden depths and can take many months to master and become a world class player."
"Overall, the game is a lot of fun, period. I tend to enjoy the Mario franchise of sports games, but this one really strikes a note with me. Perhaps itís the beat-em-up aspect, and maybe it is the satisfaction of pulling off the difficult power shots, but the game seems to have gone an extra step beyond some of the other titles. For example, Mario Tennis featured power shots themed after the player, but the implementation of shells and other power items in Mario Strikers is a welcome feature. Played with friend for trash-talking rights or alone for a bit of beat-on-the AI, the game comes down to plain and simple fun."
- Midnight Bowling 3D (79%)
"Midnight Bowling 3D throws in Gameloftís stylized characters and a number of unlocked items and characters that gives this bowling game an extra dimension. Bowling is almost a completely dead genre on consoles and PCs. But on mobile, it is addictive and fun. Itís quite clear that this game is aimed at besting the more orthodox one from JAMDAT but its requirement of a 3D cellular phone might hold it back from reaching a wider audience especially for the casual gamer crowd who might not be upgrading their phones every six months."
- Massive Snowboarding (90%)
"Massive Snowboarding is, ceteris paribus, a fantastic snowboarding game for the wireless format and a step forward for mobile gaming. Itíll go a long ways in proving that wireless gaming is not a compromise on gameplay and presentation."
Anyone try out the Fight Night Round 3 demo? I'm going to download it tonight.

"Complete with an engaging visual presentation and ESPNís Mike Patrick and former Stanford All-American Kyle Peterson calling the action, MVP 06 NCAA Baseball features an all-new Custom Ballpark feature and a robust Create a Player option. The game also includes exclusive new online* features for the PlayStationģ2 computer entertainment system and Xbox Liveģ."
TVG: "There are so many improvements, new additions to the version currently in development, why such a monumental leap forward? Is it all part of the evolutionary cycle of the series?"
Gavin: "The racing genre is very competitive so we never hold back on new or fresh ideas that we could include in the series. The evolutionary expansion of the series helps with this as once areas of the game get introduced and locked down, they can then be expanded upon in future versions. Just look at how comprehensive our on-line modes and options are in TOCA Race Driver 2006 to see how far this has progressed since TOCA Race Driver."
"Prove you have what it takes in four on four gameplay action which captures the passion and flair of real street soccer in this fresh arcade experience. Humiliate your opponents with the new trick stick beat system, over the top juggling moves and all-new gamebreakers that allow you to win a game like never before. Beat the best in the world by traveling to new International locations ranging from the famous Westway Leisure Centre in London to the beautiful beachside of Brazil."
"Electronic Arts had the excellent idea to release a playable demo of Fight Night Round 3 on the Xbox Live Market Place last night, so I just had to make a video of it. As always I play very poorly, but you should be used to it by now I have to say these are the most impressive graphics I've ever got to see running in realtime on my TV ever, wow !"
