Absolutely perfect kart racer IMO. Mk8 is positively dull compared to it
Sonic Transformed is BRILLIANT

It was a free game with PS+ for the Vita in December and I played it solidly for a month or so

The change from driving to flying and even the boats was totally seemless, very impressive

Just finished typing up my Watch Dogs review there. In the office at 230am is never fun.

Game starts like crap. It's proper awful for the first couple of hours, then it just kicks off and becomes a really, really good game. It's not great, but it's very good

yeah, i played it very stealthily and it was great. the hacking is nowhere near as impressive as was made out initially, BUT when it all comes together and you start stringing different hacks together, distracting lads before knocking their heads in with the asp, it's super

Played DayZ for about an hour there, just ran about trying to get a feel for it. Got chased by a couple of zombies who ended up getting stuck on top of each other! found a bat, killed a zombie, fell unconscious due to lack of food.

To be fair, it's pretty much only Pete who's saying it's not absolutely brilliant
