Tom Orry, Editor - DIRT 2, Xbox 360, PS3
I must have been in a tremendously bad mood a few weeks ago when I moaned about the menus in DIRT 2. Sure, they're not the most functional you're likely to see in a video game, but they look gorgeous. More importantly, the game behind the menus is bloody brilliant - so brilliant in fact that the game earned a superb 9/10 review score earlier in the week. I've always had a soft spot for rally games, with the thrill of sliding around bends being second to none in the racing game genre, and DIRT 2 delivers that in spades, along with some utterly sublime visuals. Pre-order it now.

James Orry, News Editor - Football Manager Live, PC & The Beatles: Rock Band
Well, this will come as a shock; I've actually played a game that isn't Football Manager Live this week. I spent what must have been at least 30 minutes showing Neon how to play guitar in The Beatles: Rock Band. After that brief moment of madness I quickly turned my attention back to FM Live and won my opening match in the Premier League. I've now had my best start to a season, with ten points from my opening five games - only losing to the the top team - I lost that 1-0, but put in a very respectable performance. If only there was a way to mix The Beatles with football management.

Sebastian Ford, Video Producer – Mini Ninjas, Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii
Ninininjas! That is apparently the sound made by adorable woodland creatures that have been magically turned into mindless samurai warriors. I mean it makes sense; if I was going to create an all powerful army, and I might, then the Animals of Farthing Wood should logically be my first port of call? Surely? Reassuringly, the animals do return to their previous, precious forms upon slaying the samurai drones that occupy them. Mini Ninjas has a really happy-go-lucky, family friendly, and all round cute charm about it… a charm that I suspect would dissolve quickly behind a trail of slaughtered bunnies, badgers and foxes.

Mostly been playing Resi 5 and some SF4 to break it up. Tried Defense Grid and really enjoyed it, but i can't bring myself to buy it if it's going to end up as monumentally difficult and frustration as Crystal Defenders was.

Been playing Guitar Hero 5... not too bad a game actually and for some reason it feels harder than GH4.

Tracklist isn't as bad as most predicted, but overall the game just 'feels' very well polished and plays superbly.

DLC from GH4 is compatible as well so I'm really chuffed to be honest.

Batman: AA still. Playing it on hard and then I have 100% trophies. Even playing the game on hard still feels like playing it for the first time.

DiRT 2 demo and IL Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey demo. < 100% getting DiRT 2 if the money is there and Sturm, has really surprised me.

Wut? No Wes? No Neon? Anyhoos ....

My gaming time has been somewhat interrupted by the arrival of my daughter, and my partner's subsequent couple of days in hospital. Basically, I have been playing stuff on my iPhone, and have been absolutely flabberghasted by the variety of titles in the store. Some of which are MUCH better than I would have expected!

Picks? iDracula is everything that Alive 4 Ever should be. Mr. AahH! Lite is brilliant, and I honestly don't know why I haven't gotten the full version yet. (Possibly because there is just so much else to try first.) And Drop7 is pretty damn fantastic, too.
