Wii : Red Steel

Red Steel

i was lucky enough to be given a copy of this Wii game over the weekend. Its a FPS for the Wii, and although its not the best game ever its so far been pretty enjoyable.

It makes a change from the mini/party games that seem to be the Wii stable at the moment and other than Zelda TP its something to get your teeth stuck into. Although I have only put an hour into it so far I think I will push on with it and see how it pans out.

So far I would score it 8/10.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves for Wii Review - Wii WarioWare: Smooth Moves Review

Wario is back..

WarioWare: Smooth Moves for Wii Review - Wii WarioWare: Smooth Moves Review

Grabbed this over the weekend as I needed something else to play on the Wii. Games for the Wii have been a bit thin on the ground and I needed something else to play. Never played a Wario game before and this one is quite fun. There are 200 mini games to play and most are quite fun.
I was a bit annoyed that I had to play it through for about 2 hours to get far enough in to unlock the multi player bit but I suppose thats not that long.

If anyone was looking through the window they would have laughed. The things you have to do with the controller are stupid, but you are compelled to do what it says. Jumping around the room with the controller on your head is now the norm.

Anyway, I would give it a rating of 8/10. Not the best game ever but its a bit of fun.

Arkham Horror Boardgame

Arkham Horror Boardgame > Strategy > Boardgames > Gaming - Fantasy Flight Games - Infinity Games UK

Another Christmas present and this was one I have ben after for a while. I love board games, and the Cthulhu mythos has always appealed to me.

This is a great board game, its co-op so all the players are working together to beat the old one and stop him from waking and causing chaos. The amount of bits in teh box is fantastic, you will be punching counters all night.

Need to get a game in with my group, but you can also play it solo which helps you learn the rules.

Finally managed to grab a Wii today. After 6 stores I managed to walk into one who was just getting there delivery.

So Far its been unboxed and plugged in. A quick go of Wii sports and Zelda later and im hooked. It just feels right and looks great. Sure its not state of the art GFX, but Nintendo has always been more about the games and gameplay.

So I will be staying away from the pc ports unless the reviews say otherwise and just player games for gamers.

Addiction has a new name.. Conquer Club

Remember years back, when you would play risk on the kitchen table or the living room floor. Well now you can play it online and for free.

Conquer Club is a slightly tweaked version of Risk that is played on the internet over a period of time. Depending on the speed of players this can take days or weeks.

So have a look and sign up.. if you fancy a game look out for countzero.

7th Son Podcast

This is one of the best podcasts that I have listened to. I recommend listening to this if you like good fiction with a twist of conspiracy. Its currently on book 2, so you will have a bit of catching up to do, but its well worth it.
