Tom got drunk in San Francisco last night at the XNA party and told the fellow who made The Dishwasher he thought he was funny. Dishwasher man said he didn't know what to do next. Tom said, "mate, as long as they're [rude word] paying you, make every game utterly different". Tom went on to call himself a total "playah". Minus a hundred points.
You can tell we're a bit distracted by the Game Developers Conference. After all, Cliff Bleszinksi had a replica Lancer gun from Gears of War and he ripped through a piece of paper with it to announce the sequel. We all love a bit of drama, he said with his hair and face and T-shirt.
You probably want to know what to buy this week. Well, Patapon on PSP and Unreal Tournament 3 on PS3. The former is made by the LocoRoco team and is every bit as charming, while managing to offer more depth for a more brain-fuelled adventure. The latter is from Epic Games where Cliff we-can-spell-his-name Bleszinksi works. Oh Cliff. Unreal Tournament 3, then, is an absolute corker. If you like a spot of competitive first-person shooting, then this should be on your list.
FIFA Street 3 is one you're likely to see advertised in your face everywhere you go, with its fresh artistic style that plays on caricatures like Peter Crouch. Wait. Yes. Peter Crouch is a caricature of himself. Tom really likes him and thinks he's lovely. And Crouch did have an alarmingly positive effect against Inter, after all. So, FIFA Street 3 is probably best rented as it lacks a bit of depth, but if you have friends on your sofa regularly enough, then you might consider giving it a more permanent place on your shelf.
The Club on PC is worth a look if you like old-school shooters, too.
