Attention all dirt-junkies: the wait is over. Sony and Climax have finally unleashed the latest game in their ATV series, ATV Offroad Fury 4, and while the series seems to be slowly exhausting itself (seriously, how many times can you milk such a concept?) this newest entry into the series provides enough content to please diehards and newbies alike.
In addition to loading the game with several gameplay options, such as single event races, championship races, and a new career mode, the dirt
This is the new Peggle. Not that this mellifluous blend of Wipeout, Tetris and Guitar Hero is anything like PopCap’s pachinko masterpiece, but rather that it fulfils the same purpose: a bottomless tub of instant gaming snack, ideal for when you’re waiting for a spot on that Team Fortress 2 server to open up, or trying to break through a hangover, or to play one-handed while enduring a phone call with tedious relatives. Or, most
Auditorium HD is more than a little bit hard to describe. This new abstract puzzler is unlike just about anything that came before it, and the results are often fantastic. Although, casual puzzle fans should be wary, because this game features some intense difficulty and a very steep learning curve...
How do you take control of a scorched planet that's been infected with an alien, mutating virus, battle scarred by years of war between the "pure" humans, their mutated cousins, and a race of cyborg hybrid worker drones? You do it in your car, of course - an armor-plated monster with unlimited ammunition and a desperate driver behind the wheel. That's Auto Assault, a mix of automotive mayhem and online role-playing games that will tax your rig to the max.
Fortunately for each of the three
Most RPG worlds live under the threat of constant threat of Evil Sorcerers, Fearsome Dragons and Orc Hordes. But in dungeon grinder Avalon Code, total Armageddon is already a foregone conclusion. Instead of saving the world, as protagonists Yuril or Tia, your mission is to scour the land recording genetic code of plants, animals, monsters and people to repopulate a new world risen from the ashes.
Controlling Burning Earths characters feels like sloshing butter around a hot saucepan. But, really, thats the least of its worries. Like last years original Avatar, this is a game of fixed paths, repeated button-mashing, insulting switch puzzles and cutscenes where people's mouths dont move when they speak. The combat is tedious - and it only takes around 25 minutes to get so fed up you start running straight past enemies to the next door. No worries, though - 25 minutes means youre already a
Avatar: The Last Airbender, an anime-styled cartoon on Nickelodeon, has gained quite a respectable following for a show that was originally targeted at younger viewers.
In a mythical world of four quarrelling nations (Air, Earth, Water, and Fire), the Avatar named Aang is the only one who can bring peace and stability through harnessing all four elemental powers. The show combines an entertaining mix of humor, drama, and likable characters that has drawn in a wide demographic of viewers.
Blow us down with some air bent by a certified airbender if it isn’t actually quite good. The main reason for this reversal of fortunes from the original is the new Wii-optimized control system, which allows Aang to manipulate elements using the pointer.

Similar to the cold horror of waking up next to a corpse, sometimes a game reminds us all effortlessly that there are still uncreative, dull-edged developers who will gladly rip off anything to make a quick buck. Avencast, like an excrement-driven Delorian, takes us back to the heady days of Diablo, mixing in various pillaged elements from the rest of the fantasy genre, with every cliché imaginable. While Fate at least tried to be original, Avencast manages to be about as
An interesting one, this. At first glance it all looks a little too Animal Crossing - cute green fields, clear blue streams and cozy little houses. You’ll soon begin to wonder where all the monsters are at, this being a dungeon-crawler and all. Have patience.
