The demo of the new Sega Rally game has been released on Xbox Live Marketplace in the form of a 691MB download. The demo includes the following features to choose from:
- 2 Tracks – one Tropical and one Canyon
- 2 Cars – Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
I’ve already downloaded it and had another go on it – you might remember I attended a Sega Preview Session of Sega Rally last month. It compares very well to the game I played and the main noticeable difference from the test version I played would be the AI level of the other cars – we couldn’t get anywhere near the top two cars in our preview session! Whereas I won on both courses on my second attempt (on my first attempts I was obviously getting used to driving with my controller ), presumably there will be a variety of difficulty options available in the full game.Continue reading »

‘Heroes‘ is another of my favourite TV show series which returns for season 2 on the 24th September. Unlike Lost, the story isn’t held back to the point where you are being constantly teased – in Heroes, the story is given to you thick and fast one episode after another, all contributing to the season-long self-contained ‘volume’.
The end of the first season of Heroes did see resolution to the main story arc while providing a glimpse of the direction of the next volume ‘Generations’, cleverly separated so as to not completely leave you on a cliffhanger! Warning – these videos contain spoilers of the outcome of the first season!
Here’s a promo and trailer for Heroes Season 2:Continue reading »

The end of summer if coming (for us Northern Hemisphere folks anyway!) and with that being the case (and ahead of the release of the Office season 4) the question of what did you do on your summer vacation is often asked – well not to me because I’ve not gone away anywhere….yet!
Although, with Autumn approaching that does mean that some of your favourite TV shows return for it’s season 4, one of my current favourites would have to be the American version of ‘The Office’, it took a while for me to get into it – you really have to persevere through the first few episodes, trust me it’s definitely worth it!Continue reading »
