If your Move controllers are sitting around gathering dust on your desk and looking a bit sorry for themselves, then you might want to think about getting hold of this game. Sorcery contains some great ideas and visuals, but unfortunately it still manages to fall a little bit flat. Amazon are parting with copies of the game for £20, which'll make you a saving of around £5 on the next best offers out there. Thanks to Buyt56 @ HUKD.
If you're looking to get into shape but you don't fancy joining the gym or buying a load of fitness kit from your local sports shop, then you might want to give UFC Personal Trainer a go. You'll need the Playstation Move peripheral to take part in this one and it also comes with a leg strap that keeps an eye on you whilst you're exercising. The Hut are parting with copies of the game for £12.95, which should save you £2 on the next best offer coming in from Zavvi.
If you're into motion controls and winter sports then this one might be for you provided you've got a bit of time to kill. There are plenty of different events to take part in that should be fun for the whole family, but sadly the whole thing's overshadowed by the fact that the controls really don't work well. You can save just over £3 on the PS3 and £2 on the other versions by picking up a copy of the game from either The Hut or Zavvi.
Mr. Potato Head is the host of the show in this large dose of family fun. There are plenty of games to take part in with your friends including Connect 4 Basketball, YATZHEE Bowling, and BOP IT Boptagon. This one also supports motion controls, so you can break out your Kinect sensor bar or Move controllers if you've got them. Zavvi are parting with 360, PS3, and Wii copies of the game for £13.95, which'll make you a saving of almost £9 on the Xbox and the PS3, whereas Wii owners'll save about £2 on the next best offer. Thanks to Syzable @ HUKD.
Time Crisis: Razing Storm's dropped down in price, so you can now pick up a copy from ShopTo for £9.85, which'll make you a saving of just over £2 on the next best offers coming in from Amazon and Play. When you're using the Move controller to navigate through the arcade style sections of the game you'll probably have a pretty good time, sadly things aren't so great when it attempts to mimic a first person shooter, which is a bit of a shame. Thanks to superivanho @ HUKD.
If you're looking for a bit of cheap fun for the whole family then you should think about picking up a copy of Carnival Island from ShopTo for £4.85, which'll make you a saving of over £9 on the next best offers out there. The game contains about 35 carnival style mini-games and of course they pretty much all support Move controls for those of you who are into the whole motion controls craze. Unfortunately, the single player's a little bit dull, but chances are you'll be playing this one with other people. Thanks to goonertillidie @ HUKD.
As the picture above wonderfully demonstrates, the rag doll physics in Kung Fu Rider can be pretty amusing and it helps that the graphics aren't bad either. Unfortunately though it gets fairly irritating after a while, due to its poor controls and the fact that there's almost no variety to the gameplay whatsoever. However, Bee have slashed their price for the game down to £5.99, which'll save you £3 on the next best offer coming in from Choices UK. Thanks to mrzootsuit @ HUKD.
Child Of Eden looks like it's going to be a psychedelic treat with an array of colours flooding your screen at any one time. Most of the gameplay'll involve you shooting stuff that appears on-screen and their destruction will shower you in musical notes and sound effects. If you want to know why you should be excited about this game then head on over to Jon's preview for some more details.
If you're a fan of The Big Lebowki and Kingpin, or you're just looking for a good old fashioned laugh to share with a few friends, then your wait for another bowling game is almost over come the 11th of February. In the career mode you'll be able to progress from small town amateur bowling matches into the spotlight of the professional scene. Of course multiplayer is one of the biggest appeals of the game and a maximum of four people can compete against one another at any one time.
Here's a deal for all the PS3 fans out there, who've been holding back on picking up any of the Move peripherals because of their price. You can now get hold of two of the handy motion sensing bits of kit for £47.40 provided you use the money saving voucher code, as it'll cut £10 off the price. Also, the voucher code'll only work once and you won't be able to pick up a single controller because it only applies to spends of over £50. Thanks to brcu @ HUKD.
Well, this deal'll probably keep your neighbours awake at night, once you whip out the microphones and settle into a marathon singing session, as you imitate your favourite pop stars, or feline friends, depending on your vocal abilities. In addition to singing, you'll also be able to dance around the living, seeing as the game supports Move, and thus you'll complete your transformation into an X-Factor wannabe, as you wail and crash around your living room. Also, the set list includes tracks from artists such as Jamiroquai, Gwen Stefani, and of course 'U Can't Touch This' by MC Hammer! Thanks to goonertillidie @ HUKD.
Once again Chris Redfield finds himself facing yet another set of mutated humans and other assorted creatures, who want to rip him limb from limb. However, in this instalment of the series he's aided, or hindered, by his partner Sheva depending on whether or not you're playing co-op with a competent friend or going solo and allowing the computer's AI to make some very poor decisions when it comes to Sheva's actions. I really enjoyed Resident Evil 5 and particularly liked how it tried to link up Resi Evil 4's story line with the other games, plus it's always nice to see the return of some classic characters from a series. Having said that though, it's not the best the Resi Evil series has to offer, but if you're a fan you probably won't be disappointed. Thanks to JMH87 @ HUKD
As we predicted last month and coyly hinted at the bottom of yesterday's news roundup, the big news from the Penny Arcade eXpo is that Duke Nukem Forever is very much alive. But under new management. Gearbox, the developer behind Borderlands and Brothers In Arms will be taking over from 3D Realms and finishing off DNF for a 2011 release. Excitingly, it'll make its long awaited debut on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as the PC.
Gearbox, under the outspoken and irascible leadership of Randy Pitchford, is known for delivering some excellent games with genuine personality. On time. Hopefully they'll be a perfect fit for the franchise, and we'll be watching this one like a hawk. Shake it, baby! [DukeNukemForever]
Update: Gearbox has confirmed that development is complete. All it needs now is a few months of spit and polish. [Thanks, CVG]
Activision and Eurocom's reimagining of Rare's classic (and genuinely important) N64 shooter has been causing fans to suffer alternating bouts of extreme nostalgia and anxiety. It's currently difficult to tell whether the Wii version will deliver a truly reverential experience - but according to Martin Hollis, Activision are too focused on the financial bottom line to care about the game itself. Hollis is the director and producer of the original N64 Goldeneye, and stated the following to Official Nintendo Magazine when asked about the new project:
"I imagine it is a business decision, isn't it? This name is valuable, let's use it."
"I find it hard to picture Activision's top management being excited about the original and wanting to do it justice. In fact, I find it hard to imagine them being excited about any game. It's my perception that they are trying to be EA, only more so. I think they are doing a fine job at that."
For the sake of balance, he also stated that he admired Eurocom as a developer and is sure that they're doing their "very best." Only time will tell whether they've been able to get "excited" enough to effectively emulate and improve upon the source material. [Official Nintendo Magazine via Eurogamer]
I managed to play some Goldeneye at Gamescom... and whilst it's showing some promise, Eurocom will really need to step development up a notch in order to hold a candle to the original. Check it out here.
In an attempt to market their impressive Motion Control peripheral to an older audience, Kevin Butler (yeah, I'm still calling him that) has stepped up to the plate and delivered a hilariously epic trailer. Nothing I've seen or played at Gamescom has convinced me that Move is particularly appropriate for hardcore gamers... but hey, why not watch the video and decide for yourself.
