Football Fans Rejoice

Football fans up and down the country this weekend were out in force to celebrate the start of the new season. To a football fanatic this week of the year is hard to beat. But wait! It has just got even better…

This week has seen the announcements of the details for the forthcoming installments in both the FIFA & Football Manager gaming series.

Fifa 12:

New features include: A new Player Impact Engine, Pro Player Intelligence, Tactical Defending, Precision Dribbling & True Injuries. All of which can be seen fully explained in the video below.

Available this year on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PC, PSP, 3DS & PS2. This truly looks like the best in the series to date, although I’m sure this get said every year, but doesn’t mean it should have any less bearing.

Football Manager 2012:

FM2012PCPrepare for more sleepless nights and that ‘just-one-more-match’ syndrome. The Football Manager series has build up a cult following amongst fans.

This years edition includes a plethora of welcome new features. I can’t wait for the ability to be able to start throwing tea cups in the dressing room during half-time team talks!

Our Favourite Products Of The Year (So Far)

So here we are almost half way through 2011, (better start thinking about Xmas soon!) it seemed like a good point to reflect on all the great products we have seen released this year and pick our favourites.

DVD:

  1. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
  2. Black Swan
  3. The King’s Speech
  4. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1
  5. Mad Men – Season 4

Our Buyers Choice:

 

True Blood has got darker and sexier with each season, In season 3 you finally get some answers to what Sookie actually is and what Bill’s and Eric’s intentions really are. Each character gets more depth and you finally start to see everyone’s true colours.”

 

Blu-ray:

  1. Despicable Me
  2. The Social Network
  3. Tron: Legacy
  4. Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D
  5. The Other Guys

Our Buyers Choice:

 

Unlike some fighting based films, the story line was well written kept me interested and entertained throughout. Christian Bale played his character superbly and the onscreen partnership between him and Mark Wahlberg was very well done


Music:

  1. Now Thats What I Call Music 78 (Now 78)
  2. Foo Fighters – Wasting Light
  3. Adele – 21
  4. Lady Gaga – Born This Way
  5. Beyonce – 4

Our Buyers Choice:

“Even with this being their 20th album, rockers Motorhead proved they still had the fire (and the tunes!) returning this year with their best release in years. After being released in conjunction with Classic Rock mag in Dec 2010, this received a ‘proper’ release by EMI in Jan 2011, just about allowing this qualification!”

Games:

  1. Zumba Fitness
  2. LittleBigPlanet 2
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  4. Portal 2
  5. Mass Effect 2

Our Buyers Choice:

 

“This outshines every other tennis game on the market. It is brilliant, ultra realistic, great graphics & very satisfying to play. The only way to describe this game is ‘awesome’!”

 

Toys:

  1. Teacup Piggies – Snowflake
  2. Hexbug – Elevation Habitat Set
  3. LEGO 4183 Pirates of the Caribbean – The Mill
  4. Doctor Who: Character Building Mini Set – The Tardis
  5. Angry Birds 4 Inch Plush with Sound – Red Bird

Our Buyers Choice:

“I’m fascinated by the random coupling of a felt pig with a plastic teacup. So wrong, yet so right. They talk, laugh and oink, there are even 6 to collect and they all have their own unique personality too!”

While holidaying in France, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) meets her ideal man in Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher) and the two swiftly tie the knot. But there is a catch: Spencer Aimes (Kutcher) is a government-hired undercover hitman, and although he is more than happy to trade in his glamorous life of international intrigue for suburban marital bliss with Jen, it turns out that some elements of his former life have yet to be laid to rest.
