A floor stealer for me this year was definitely Battlefield 3, partly because I enjoyed it a lot, and partly because they had a ton of the consoles running it. It literally stole the floor. Alongside Modern Warfare 3. These two games generated an insane amount of activity and the queues for both were incredibly long. The only other game generating THAT much attention would have been Skyrim.

Available at the show was both single player and the multiplayer. The single player was a short excerpt from level Operation Guillotine, a night time level set on storming a city complex. The level didn’t show off a great deal of what we can expect and even though the TV’s settings were ridiculously dark, it still boasted some incredibly good graphics for some vibrant and effective firefights. The city area didn’t show off the games immersive sound all that well, but with all the background noise of the show, it was sometimes hard to tell.

The first person shooter is a tough nut to crack. Since the PC, First Person shooters have been stealing players away from other genres and slowly but surely, the genre has developed and grown in intuitive and clever ways. We’ve taken the bad with the incredibly good and currently, we sit within a FPS limbo. With the Call of Duty franchise wooing over a majority of FPS players, this genre deadzone is literally enough to make or break new series. But is now the time for something new to take in the limelight?

God I certainly do hope so. As groundbreaking as COD 4 was when it hit our consoles, the multiplayer, four games on has become stale with little real advancements and whilst the ‘don’t fix what ain’t broke’ saying would normally apply. Sometime down the line, minor changes and fannying about with over priced map packs just isn’t going to cut it.

Enter Brink, a title from UK developer Splash Damage, known for titles such as; Enemy Territories Quake Wars and Doom 3. Brink brings an objective heavy, class based style of game play with some seriously creative parkour elements. Top that off with a unique visual style and some serious customisation and we could be onto a winner here.

With the WRC game fully failing to get a rise out of true rally fans, we turn yet again to Codemasters, these days; Codemasters producing a stellar racing game is as expected as the sun rising. It’s comforting to know that one of the remaining UK development teams have such an impact in a genre so popular. GRiD, DiRT and F1 are all testaments to that.

Dirt has probably been the most challenged of the franchises however. Originally spawning from the Colin McRae Rally series back on the PSX, Dirt’s first outing on the Xbox was a serious Rally fixated mix between arcade and sim, introducing new cars and races like the Hill Climbs, Buggy and Trophy Truck events and even some Big Rig time trials.

Wretchedness: The initial hype surrounding the release of Portal 2 has managed to die down quite a lot recently, so what better time to pick up a copy and have a go. That’s exactly what we did.

W: Considering the amount of time since release you have no doubt read countless reviews for this game. We thought we would do something different, a joint review. Two reviewers for the price of one, proof that you can have your cake and eat it too. No Lie.

MechanicalR: Following the massive response Portal 1 got after being added as a content filler to Valves Half Life 2 juggernaut The Orange Box. Portal based puzzles took the gaming world by storm and with it, a new type of gamer was born.

M: Portals puzzles got everyone involved, family members and loved ones watching from the sofa as you rake your brains for the solution would chip in and throw in their two cents or just mock you for your poor observation skills. Valve took notice of this and decided to take Portal 2 one step further.
