Xbox 360 Blur Multiplayer Beta
Format (Full Game): Xbox 360/PS3/PC

Today we have 3 keys for Bizarre's Blur Multiplayer Beta to give away.

Blur is the latest racer from the developer who brought us the PGR series.  Its not as serious a racer as the PGR games, but with that kind of legacy, its looking to be quite impressive.

So to be in with a chance of winning a beta key, in the comments section below, post a caption for the following picture:

The better the comments are the more likely you are to win.  So get thinking guys and dolls and post your caption and your XBL Gamertag in the comments like this:

Barricade mistook the ringing as an insult again.  GT Sibboz
The competition will close tonight, 12/03/10 at 10pm GMT and prizes will be sent out via xbox live message after 10pm GMT.

So Good Luck!.

(PS, If you didn't get my terrible caption, Barricade is the Decepticon Police Car in Transformers)

Bioshock 2 Review

Bioshock 2 (Xbox 360/PS3/PC)
Reviewed on Xbox 360

Genre: FPS
Developer: 2K - Irrational Games, Various 2K branches, Digital Extremes
Publisher: 2K Games

Feb 9th 2010 Euro Release

Rapture, the fruit of Ryan's labour, has survived.

I've been looking forward to Bioshock 2, the first was simply awesome.  The storyline, music, art design and theme all worked amazingly well together.  However, after hearing Ken Levine was going to be taking a backseat on this project, I was slightly concerned.  His input and direction on Bioshock definitely pushed the development team in the right direction and put the story at the forefront of the experience.  Would this happen without his direct influence?  Have I been humbled?  

Would you kindly read on....

The long awaited sequel finally arrived this year.  Set ten years after the events of the first game, you take on the role as 'Delta', a unique Big Daddy, instead of the previous amnesia sufferer.

Your back in Rapture, and boy, it ain't no prettier.  The Splicers are as vicious and hideous as ever, it seems they've been busy over the years splicing up and generally creating a nuisance of themselves against the Big Daddy's.

Special Editions - My Guilty Pleasure

Ever since the first special edition games, I have always been on the look out for that 'Ultimate' package.

It seems to have become a compulsive addiction of mine, one that's stung me a few times over the years.  So I've decided to rate the ones I have so far accumulated.

Gradually, I will be going through my collection, reviewing the quality and content of each edition.  I will also include the game review if its a recent release.

Keep an eye out for full features coming soon.
