People that follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter will know how much I love this game. Canabalt is a Flash game and iPhone app made by Semi Secret Software. It was released in September 2009. Its premise is simple, run, jump, and survive. Simple right? Yeah it is. But there’s still a lot under the hood of this game. Is it worth the €2.39 on the App Store? That’s what I’m about to tell you.

(Note: For any of of you out there that also read Tim Rogers over at action button dot net, there’s going to be an agreement of ideals behind the game (and others) that borderlines on plagiarism. I do agree with Tim and what he said, but I’m trying my best to get my own words and feelings behind it, so Tim, if you ever stumble on this, and feel somewhat violated and pissed off that I’m ripping you off, just ask me and I’ll take it down.)

Good news for PS3 and PC gamers this morning as Rockstar have announced that they are finally bringing their Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable episodes multi-platform.

Considering recent comments by Take-Two (Rockstar’s parent company) CEO Ben Feder, saying that the sales of the DLC were not quite what they had expected, this may not come to some as a surprise, but after the reported $50m that Microsoft had invested into Rockstar in order to make the episodes to begin with, both fanboy rage and delight has already started to flood the internet.

Let’s face it, it’s only just been announced, so not every single fact is set in concrete (except the Kotaku link, because they were at the announcement). But here’s my personal pull-no-punches take on the new Apple iPad. (more…)

After hearing – and telling you – about the new browser based Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online, I figured, well, I better give it a go as well to see if it’s worth your while to sign up for a trial. And since I already had an EA Sports account from playing FIFA and NHL, I thought I’d put it to good use.

Going by the news today on EA Sports head honcho Peter Moore’s blog, the public access demo for Tiger Woods PGA Tour is now life for anyone who wants to try it out. The trial contains selected holes from the TPC course at Sawgrass, and includes the famous 17th Hole. The full game will feature other recognizable courses such as the ones at Pebble Beach, Wolf Creek and Wentworth.

You can play the demo of it here.

So with this going active, will this mean that EA will be sticking with Tiger Woods throughout his whole personal life fiasco that exploded over the news in the tail end of 2009?

… and I know there’s a fair good handful of you out there!

If there’s any feedback you have about the site, any of the games mentioned or just want to get your opinion out there, don’t be afraid to leave comments or anything like that. I will read them, and until they get insurmountable I will try my best to reply to them as well. After all, I’m still relatively new to the whole “writing constructively about videogames” thing so a couple of voices from the readers like yourselves would go down a storm in terms of helping me improve the site.

Alternately you can get me on Twitter @jayc4life, or via e-mail at jayc4lifeAThotmailDOTcoDOTuk. (BOO Spambots!)

For those of you that know me personally, I’d also gladly accept the loan of recent-ish games so I can get reviews and opinions up on them, I’m only small-time and not exactly made of money, so any little helps 😛

Criterion Games Tweet

Well folks, the great run’s come to an end. For what was the best post-release support I’ve ever seen for a game, Criterion’s finally said  “when” on Burnout Paradise DLC. Perhaps this would have something to do with their as-yet-unnamed Need for Speed game they are due to release this year. Either way, since we have to stop asking them for more Burnout stuff, maybe now’s the time to get more requests in for BLACK 2!
