That is just a few of the games to be released before the end of 2009. If you consider yourself to be an avid gamer, I would definitely recommend purchasing Left 4 Dead 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and finally Assassins Creed 2. All of these games are sure to amaze, and have been long awaited  by many gamers.

Keep on the look-out for these games, as they will be arriving very soon.   Personally, I can’t wait for these games to hit the shelves!

What’s hot and what’s not.

Cars of the future, as a motor enthusiast and a toddler at heart, whenever I envisage cars of the future, it automatically shapes into something that would be able to travel through space, hover, have rear spoilers that have no actual use, and produce so little pollution that everytime one is actually purchased, a polar bear gets a little more of it’s home back. But in this article I would like to talk about what to look out for… in the not so distant future, so I would like to welcome a brand new addition to the green room, So what’s hot and what’s not to look out for in 2010.

What’s hot?

The ferrari 599xxFerrari 599xx: Those two X’s bring with them an additional 100 hp to the already face shattering 610 hp of the ferrari 599, this prancing pony is not one to be messed with.

2010 Range rover sport:  I found that the first installment of the sport was a disappointment, crossed fingers that this one will match eager expectations.

Fisker Karma: It’s an all-sports car with powerful features. It goes 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds and can reach the top speed of 125 mph. Oh and it’s green… Apparently.

Audi A1 Sportback Concept: Aside from the looks , you could almost envisage  it gently neutering a sick baby seal back to health.

What’s not.

Mercedes 300SL gullwing: Although not officially announced as being put into produThe Nissan Cubection, why ruin a classic. It’s like a follow up of The Blues brothers… oh wait no that already happened.

BMW X6 M: It’s about as good off road as a Honda Jazz, and has the looks to match.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution XF Q-400: With 403 Bhp and 378lb.ft of torque it sure as hell packs a punch, but does ‘Wrx broh!’ mean anything to you?

Nissan Cube: Well it’s certainly a cube…

This week in Gaming: Madworld

Madworld Platform: Nintendo Wii

Developers: Platform Games, Sega

Classification: MA 15+

Genre: Action, Fighting

*****/*****
Now I don’t usually give a five star rating for any game, but for this one, it deserves it. Sega and Platform games have teamed up to create the recently released Madworld for Wii. Wii is not known for  being a hardcore gaming console, rather a family game, however this game completely changes the theory.

You play as Jack, a survivalist in a city that has been taken over by another race. You are forced to compete in a game show called ‘Death Watch’ where you have to fight enemies in order to survive. You go around the city killing enemies in the most brutal of brutal ways using weapons such as Chainsaws, Spiked Baseball bats and even ninja blades.  Each kill gains you a certain amount of points, the more brutal the kill, the higher amount of points rewarded. In order to win the game show, you must gain a high amount of points.

You fight around a map, with a boss at each level, each level is made up of the most twisted ideas such as ninjas riding on motorbikes and bus’ with metal spikes on the side.Through out each level you acquire new weapons such as massive poles, ninja swords and studded baseball bats. However you have your trusty , rusty chain saw the whole way through the game .

The colours in the game include black, white and a whole lot of red! This allows the graphics to be better on the Wii as it was not as much hard work to make only three colours in the game , and the designers could work on rendering the graphics to make it great for the Wii. Madworld is also multiplayer. You can play side by side with a friend and compete in the most gruesome challenges. This game also includes a 15 song hip-hop sound track to match the game, which gives the game an even better feel to it.

Who ever came up with this game is either a mental patient or a complete and utter genius. This game is a must have for your Wii, and is  a total classic. I hope all Wii users out there can  experience the glory of this game.
