We have rolled back a number of the latest games and all of them are available at asda.com or in our stores.

Here are just a few:

COD BO2: £33.00
Far Cry £27.99
FIFA: £29.97
Halo: £27.99

If you missed out last year is an opportunity to get hold of these great games.

My personal favourite is Far Cry – you are essentially stranded on a island and have to evade locals who can hold you for ransom, yet still survive based on what nature can offer you! Watch out for roaming tigers…

Video games buyer Ben Encell takes a look at the brand new game in the Crysis franchise. Find out what he and the team make of it.

Imagine a world where New York City is an urban jungle – quite literally. Run down and unloved, a jungle has appeared over years of destruction and decay… Imagine the said city was run by a private military and they have erected a dome over the city, creating a huge greenhouse where trees grow from buildings.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2The last couple of weeks have been pretty tortuous for a select few of us here at Asda House as we’ve been keeping a secret…

CALL OF DUTY IS BACK!

As always promising to be bigger and better than ever the latest instalment in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops II, has been announced today. In order to get the product live on our website and in store for Asda customers to pre-order we’ve had to be planning this for a couple of weeks though, and keeping it quiet has been a struggle, particularly for a huge fan of the game like myself! Not bragging to mates about the title or about what we’ve seen in the trailers is never easy as we’re all so excited about what is in store this time around.

But now with the shroud of secrecy lifted we can start to get excited about the return of the gaming juggernaut! In an entirely new setting – a 21st Century Cold War – this promises to be a whole new experience for COD fans. Available to pre-order at Asda Direct our pre-order price guarantee means that if you order with us you are guaranteed to get Asda’s best price for the game or if you prefer you can order in store.

There do remain some big secrets about what this years COD has to offer, and these will be released later in the year as the hype ramps up, but what you can guarantee is the game is going to be all action, amazing multiplayer, and once again set to smash all records in terms of being the biggest entertainment franchise on the planet. As always Asda will be focused on delivering a great customer experience both online and in store, and we’re keen to ensure we keep our customers informed of what we’re planning so keep checking back here for updates.

This Friday sees the return of FIFA Street to our consoles for the first time since 2008, for all football and FIFA fans this game is a must buy!

FIFA Street I first got a glimpse of the new and improved FIFA Street at EA’s showcase event on the 20th October 2011, and as a massive football and FIFA fan I have been eagerly awaiting this release since then!

As well as Lionel Messi making his FIFA pack-shot debut, FIFA Street has been completely revolutionised for this latest release. Inspired by street footballers around the world, the game moves away from the strategic, authentic tactical approach of other football games, focusing instead on flair, skill and street dribbling, truly making this what we all love about the beautiful game.

Using the critically acclaimed FIFA 12 game-play engine, including the impact engine, precision dribbling, and personality+, FIFA Street is shaping up to be a refreshing addition to the 2012 release slate, and based on the pre-orders that we are currently seeing this is shaping up to be another hit for the FIFA franchise.

If like me you are a fan of football and football games, take the challenge to own the street and pre-order FIFA Street for £37.47 from ASDA.Direct. Available on PS3 and X-Box 360.

Today sees the release of Mass Effect 3, which should be the biggest gaming release of the quarter, maybe even the first half of 2012.

Mass Effect 3It’s been a game I’ve been waiting for since early last year and I’m certainly not the only one judging by the amount of pre-orders we’ve taken. Also the review scores pretty much across the board say that this game is more than worth the wait, it’s got 10/10 in a lot of the gaming press. It seems EA have another hit on their hands.

The Mass Effect franchise seems to have really grown yet again into this latest release and it’s certainly a title that warrants it’s triple A rating. The addition of the Kinect functionality should be a great one, and for Microsoft it’s a great thing to help Kinect really cross over to the hardcore gamers rather than just be seen as something for party gaming. I just hope my colleagues on the battlefield manage to interpret my Yorkshire accent without too much difficulty!

Mass Effect 3 has certainly caused a lot of hype in the gaming world as the retailer Game is not stocking it, and whilst that’s not something I would care to comment on I do know that we are pushing it all guns blazing both online and in store. It should be huge success based on the pre-orders we’ve seen so hopefully it’s a game our customers love just as much as they have with 1 and 2!
