It's not often that I play a movie-licensed game that I enjoy, but Salvation is the exception. While I admit that the full game might well get a bit samey, and the visuals are a bit rough, the cover-based gameplay and emphasis on flanking made it far more strategic than I had anticipated. One of the things that'll get you on the game's side is the music, which is clearly ripped from the movie and is classic Terminator - even the loading screen is cool. For my money I reckon this will be the best movie licensed game released this year, so I'm hoping it doesn’t let me down.

Wesley Yin-Poole, Deputy Editor - Capcom, pretty much everything
You might have noticed that VideoGamer.com has been a bit less Wesley Yin-Poole in recent times (you probably haven't). It's not because I've decided to trade in my pen and notepad for that other dream job of mine (Chelsea FC number 10). It's because I've been sunning myself on the French Riviera at Captivate 09, Capcom's annual showcase event. You'll be hearing what went on in Monte Carlo on Tuesday - it'll be worth the wait. Get ready to F5 the site into oblivion because we've got some mega previews planned of some massive games you know about, and some you don't. Remember, Tuesday, 4pm GMT, we spill all. Be there or be square.

Neon Kelly, Previews Editor - The Last Stand, online game
This week I have mostly been playing Resident Evil 5 and GTA: Chinatown Wars. I suspect you're sick of hearing about how great both these games are, so instead I thought I'd flag up a Flash game called The Last Stand. It's actually been around for years now, so some of you may know it, but if you don't I heartily recommend you give it a spin. The internet is awash with these “siege shoot-em-up” games, but this is one of the best: you play a lonely bloke trapped during a zombie apocalypse. You run up and down the right hand side of the screen, attempting to blow away the endless tide of undead approaching your barrier. At the end of each stage you can search for new weapons and for chums to help your fight, or fix the damage the zombies have done to your little fort. That's all there is to it, but it's great because a) it's rather gory and b) because everything gets tense surprisingly quickly. It's no Left 4 Dead, but hey – it's free. What more do you want?

You can play The Last Stand here. Be sure to check out the sequel too – it's just as good.

It's been a good week for my the Senior and Youth Danglers. The men are through to the semi-finals of the AEFA Premiere Challenge Cup after an away goals victory over F.C, while the boys have started the All Evening U21s meaning business - eight wins out of eight, 19 goals scored and 0 conceded. It's the kind of form that wins titles... here's hoping. My only major concern right now is my inability to win in the Premier League. The Danglers are currently sitting mid table, but I feel they should be doing much better, and the reason for the lack of success is clear: six goals from nine games. The coaching staff have also brought to my attention that several first-team regulars are now past their best, a bit of a squad rebuild is needed.

Sebastian Ford, Video Producer – Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, PSP
Having devoted so much time to Oblivion these last few weeks, I decided to put it down and find something else that has been severely lacking attention. First thing that comes to hand is my (slightly dusty) PSP. I’ve had this game for roughly a year now, it hasn’t left my PSP, and yet I have still only managed to put in about 10 hours of gameplay so far. I had a feeling I would have forgotten all the finer details that you are required to know in order to make the best use of your equipment and materia. To my surprise, it all came flooding back. Not fifteen minutes back into the game and I stumble upon a Sephiroth-based FMV that absolutely blows me away. Not long after that I’m crashing through the roof of the Church in Sector 5 Slums where we meet Aerith for the first time. The nostalgia is coming back to me, and I’m drinking in every last drop!

I brought Chronicles of Riddick yetersday but I still haven't put the disc in...

Been playing Prince Of Persia quite a bit recently, as of my Hulkamania moments with WWE Legends. Prince Of Persia is a good game, its vibrant colours and its emphasis had me fall back in love with it. The old style Prince Of Persia jumping and the new addition of Elika making the experience a lot better.

Red Fraction demo as well. I really like the demo as of 10 minutes worth does give you enough time to what small percentage Red Fraction can do. The destruction is far most the best bit about Red Fraction. Not only that but you can do some great tactical offensive actions, like using charges on a oil plant move off to another location with your assault rifle. Press the charges and mow down the meaningless enemy.
