I tend to dip in and out of FIFA 12 too. In my current season RVP asked to leave (amazingly) so I replaced him with Benzema. And Hazard 8)

I'm quite keen to find a tennis game for the Wii, any recommendations?
Console for pedos imo.

After the massive let down that was Mass Effect 3 (it's supposed to be an RPG not a fucking 3rd person shooter. Thank you EA for yet another game dumbed down for the mass market), I went on to the Witcher 2. Very enjoyable, not to mention infuriating. You have to really prepare yourself before every battle. Finished that and now I've gone back to tanning Battlefield 3. Wanna get Bastion on XBLA, heard many a great thing. Binary Domain is an enjoyable romp, and you can get it for £20 I think. Metal Gear Solid HD collection is pretty tidy as well.

I'm fairly good at tiger woods and the tony hawks stuff... but I've just never got on with FPS stuff.

I'm playing Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex. Both are amazing, for different reasons.

Hmm. Initial thoughts is that it does feel more shooty, but if I hadn't used my powers it would have felt really tricky. Plus - all the dialogue. If you start chatting to everyone you can you're there for fucking hours.

Crikey, that does look good. The megadrive collection I've got is missing a good old skool shooter - this looks like it will fill that role and then some.
