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!

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.
