Cheers!

 

Enslaved was on my radar, but the demo swiftly removed it (thankfully).

I may well take the cash earmarked for that & take a punt on a title that was never on my radar, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.  I am hearing a lot of praise for this one.  Looks like the Kojima influence may well have paid off :)

Never taken an interest in Castlevania. Might have to start now ;)

As for Enslaved. I'm hearing reviewers praising it but the demo has mixed reactions why? What is that game hiding that I can't seem to grasp? Maybe its because there are so many other appealing games on my radar that I can't fit any more games in until after Christmas next year :D

Pros: Its the only licensed rally game this gen ;)

 

Cons: Its made by Black Bean who did the SBK series :|

 

 

I'm not expecting much from it, and definitely aren't buying it until I've tried out the handling.

Yep, those are the games that are of interest to me. WRC might not be the greatest rally game (Richard Burns Rally from 2004 still is); but it's nice to see a "pure" rally game again, Codemasters lost it with their Dirt games.

 

One thing I find funny about Castlevania, is that they released a long trailer of the game this week, and it starts with the intro song from Super Castlevania IV from 1991 :D No remix or anything, it's the original song from a 19 year old game :smileytongue:

I smell a PES fanboy. Why don't you get the football game that is getting the much more superior scores?

Well I always get both anyway and I always much prefer playing PES, imo its still a better game but I'm not a fanboy as I still buy Fifa and play it a fair bit but given a choice I'd pick PES.

Yeah I agree they are both decent and good to have a second choice rather than a few years back when PES was the only one worthwhile getting.

Don't get too excited about WRC until you play the demo, I wasn't impressed at all.

 

Can't wait for FIFA 11 now 10/10 unbelievable tekkers.

HAHA FIFA 11 getting a 10? That is just laughable, the game is good for one week then gets  so boring and repetitive. PES 2011 has more varying play and when you play one game you always willing to play another and another it is more addictive, feels better playing football.
