    Playstation Move Heros (PS3) - 3/10

    Wow, that's quite the score. Move not exactly working out for Sony as they thought it would I guess.

    Slow month on the whole though.

    The criticisms are:

    - there's plenty of standard, crappy, waggle nonsense
    - in the games that do have precise controls, they're ruined by shitty level design
    - the "heroes" are just avatars and for the most part, don't have any of the trademark abilities (ie. they might as well not even be there)

    Also says the game also seems to be aged at pre-teens and doesn't have a lot of substance.

    It's made by these guys.

    Seems to be getting poor reviews all over.

    Did they have any reason to dislike Patapon this time?

    The Crysis 2 review is quite interesting. Basically that the compromises are easy to detect but it's not bought down by them.

    Interesting article in there about the 'rise' of MP gaming. Mentions Arkham City as a game that's totally shunned MP (thank you!). The fundamental flaw being that if they are multi-platform, not many studios are big enough to handle it on all formats and they are outsourced to other companies.

    Anyhow, Max Payne 3 looks fucking fantastic!

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    I would click the link but what's the use, we're all going to live pointless lives and die.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    They said it was good (hence the above average score) but the main drawbacks were that it's no longer as unique as it was when Patapon 1 came out, so its repetitiveness is more of an issue.

    Says the central gameplay mechanics are the same, but a "lack of meaningful innovation in single player belies a sense that the concept may be wearing thin, forcing the developer to innovate elsewhere." ie. multiplayer, which is more fleshed out, but ultimately not very good.

    The game has scored pretty high in most reviews, its got a good metacritic score. I think the game is great myself, lots of disappointed people on this forum though.

    Monkey Ball 3DS is actualloy very good indeed in my humble opinion. Yes it is very easy to breeze through the main game using continues but you need to get the medals which means you have to do each world with no continues, each world with no continues using motion control (which is utterly superb by the way), and each world eating all bananas and no continues. There are more medals after that but I've not got there as yet. I'd actually call this the most enjoyable MB since 1 and 2 on the GC.

    FCUTA!

    "Playstation Move Heroes - by the guys who vomited out Zombie Apocalypse" would have sufficed as a review.

    Bah, I've not finished reading last month's edition yet. Again!

    I've been considering ditching my sub. Do I really need a monthly magazine in this day and age? I'd kind of like to read more books.
