Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer
(SCEA, PS3). Probably the game of
2010, Heavy Rain is a combination
of the surreal and the real. This is not
a game that can be picked up and
put down easily. Very few titles can
boast the psychological aspects that
Heavy Rain has. That is what sets it
apart from other games in the genre.
Like the Giant Drop at DreamWorld,
it just has to be experienced.
PlayStation Move (Sony, PS3). It was only a
matter of time, but Sony's new PlayStation
Move could render Nintendo's Wii redun-
dant. The new Move Motion controllers were
launched in September here in Australia
taking the PS3's HD gaming experience to a
new level. This is an upgrade that will benefit
both hardcore gamers and the casual gamer
and is set to become the must have toy of
Just Dance 2 (Ubisoft, Wii). The second
instalment has 45 new tracks ranging
from the classics to today's chart-toppers.
Gamers can now have epic dance battles
with up to eight players in a round. Create
new dances moves, become a legend of
the lounge room.
Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (Activi-
sion, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii). Join with
friends online or in your home on an
epic rock journey to save rock 'n' roll.
With over 90 tracks to choose from
and a totally new rock-inspired guitar
controller, gamers can now strum,
drum and wail their way through the
most impressive music video game
on the market. The biggest names
in rock are on board, including Kiss,
Megadeth, Queen, Black Sabbath
Super Scribblenauts (Warner
Bros, NDS). Expanding on
the innovative elements from
the original title with new
controls and gameplay, Super
Scribblenauts has created a
fresh and fun game for kids
of all ages.
Halo Reach (Microsoft, Xbox
360). This is a prequel to the
original Halo trilogy. It takes
place in the year 2552 where
humanity is locked in a war
with the alien Covenant on
the human colony of Reach.
Players control Noble 6, a
member of an elite super
soldier squad, during the
battle to save the colony.
As the Covenant begin their
assault on the planet, the
soldiers begin their heroic yet
ultimately futile effort to halt
the brutal alien invaders.
DJ Hero 2 (Activision,
Xbox 360, PS3, Wii).
Transform your living
room into nightclubs
and battle against
friends, online DJs and
beat chemists. Fire up
the two turntables and
start mixing it up.
First aid training gave me the
cou rage, confidence and skills to do
what I had to do to save my wife.
Ian Denniss, Singleton,
performed CPR on his wife Patsy
when she stopped breathing one night.
