Hello loves! June has been bloody ace - there's a turn up for them books we all know and love. Right at the start of the month a bunch of Rodents piled off to Funspot in Americaland - and we've managed to squeeze four articles out of the thing so, we're happy.
Then there arrived three fantastic racing games for that Xbox 360 we keep as a noisy pet - and
all of them offer something different. We love, and review, Forza 2 and Dirt (Codemasters can fuck right off with the DiRT nonsense) but just because we don't say much about Flatout you'd be wrong to write it off as lazily as we have. Forza has turned out to be a superb racing simulator, sweeping GT4 off it's perch in one neat move. DITr is a terrific arcade racer and looks absolutely stunning. And then Flatout: it's silly, it's Demolition Derby meets something else and it offers the best online experience of the three - played against mates Flatout is a right fucking giggle.
Oh and some other cool stuff happened - we launched RodentWeekend.com (have a little clicky up in the left-hand corner there) and it's gone stupidly well. And we hope you like it too.
Then, bless us all, the Rodent Allstars Five-a-Side Footy team, against all odds, went all the way at the recent MCV & Xbox Game Fives tournament. Well I say 'went all the way', what I mean is 'lost on penalties in the Plate final to Future'. But what a day! One of our finest moments.
Yip Yip Children!
Look at them guts!
