I’m more of a pass, pass, run, set up, pass, shoot kind of a guy when it comes to football and as such, love playing FIFA 12.  It’s a great game with great presentation…

Grand Slam Tennis was originally a game created and released for the Wii back in 2009.  XBox and PS3 version were promised later in 2009, but were then delayed indefinitely.  Now however these missing…

The humid nights that preceded Christmas, along with the increasing business of the Holiday season saw my intended 9 week fitness plan come to a crashing fail after barley two weeks.  But those two weeks were a combination of massive highs (as I continued to do better day after day) and frustrating lows (as I realised how un-fit I was as I continued to fail in completing many of my prescribed workouts).

The results in calories burnt seemed impressive, until I looked up what the average calorie intake was.  But it was a start, and with the more sedate pace of the new year, I aim to pick my game back up and pound off a few more calories.

One thing Active 2 did do, was encourage me into a more physically active holiday with plenty of beach walks and swimming rather than the usual sunbathe with a good book and get roasted like a lobster. 

Ah, cricket.  The gentleman’s game.  The long, drawn out game where you mostly get to stand around.  It’s not a sport that I’m particularly fond of.

I have however played Codemasters’ previous cricket game, so I have a little experience with the genre, at least in the gaming sense.  Not that I can remember too much, except it was overly complicated and I couldn’t hit the damn ball.

Fortunately, along with crisper graphics, Codies have designed a batting system that actually makes sense to a complete idiot like me (in the cricketing sense).
