Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1, and officially referred to as the FIA Formula One World Championship,[2] is the highest class of single seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules with which all participants' cars must comply.[3] The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix (translated to English as "Big Prize"[4]), held on purpose-built circuits and public roads. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organizers, and circuits required to be holders of valid Super Licences,[5] the highest class of racing licence issued by the FIA.[6]

Formula One cars race at high speeds, up to 360 km/h (220 mph) with engines revving up to a formula-imposed limit of 18,000 rpm. The cars are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g in corners. The performance of the cars is highly dependent on electronics (although traction control and driving aids have been banned since 2008), aerodynamics, suspension, and tyres. The formula has seen many evolutions and changes through the history of the sport. Europe is Formula One's traditional centre, where all of the teams are based, and where around half of the races take place. However, the sport's scope has expanded significantly in recent years and Grands Prix are held all over the world.

Formula One is a massive television event, with an aggregate global audience of 600 million people for each race.[7] The Formula One Group is the legal holder of the commercial rights.[8] With annual spending totalling billions of US dollars, Formula One's economic effect is significant, and its financial and political battles are widely covered. Its high profile and popularity make it an obvious merchandising environment, which leads to very high investments from sponsors, translating into extremely high budgets for the constructors. However, mostly since 2000, due to the always increasing expenditures, several teams, including works teams from car makers and those teams with minimal support from the automotive industry, have gone bankrupt or been bought out by companies wanting to establish a team within the sport; these buyouts are also influenced by Formula One limiting the number of participant teams.

uitar Hero World Tour (initially referred to as Guitar Hero IV or Guitar Hero IV: World Tour) is a music video game developed by Neversoft and published by RedOctane and Activision. It is the fourth main entry in the Guitar Hero series. The game was launched in North America in October 2008 for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 consoles, and a month later for Europe and Australia. A version of World Tour for Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh was later released.[1][2][4]

While the game continues to feature the use of a guitar-shaped controller to simulate the playing of rock music, Guitar Hero World Tour is the first game in the Guitar Hero series to feature drum and microphone controllers for percussion and vocal parts, similar in manner to the competing Rock Band series of games. The game allows users to create new songs through the "Music Studio" mode, which can then be uploaded and shared through a service known as "GHTunes".

World Tour received generally positive reviews with critics responding positively to the quality of the instrument controllers, the customization abilities, and improvements in the game's difficulty compared with the previous Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

The Fight: Lights Out, known as Nikudan in Japan[3], and also known during development as Motion Fighter, is a 2010 action fighting video game developed by ColdWood Interactive[1] and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3. It utilizes the new PlayStation Move controllers.[4] It was officially unveiled at the 2010 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco [4] and was released in November 2010.
[edit] Gameplay

The game is presented with predominantly black and white graphics and bright red blood.[5] In the game, the player takes control of a character in a one on one fight with another character. Players use the PlayStation Move to control player's attacks, such as punches, jabs and uppercuts by performing the same moves in real life using the controller. Currently there are twelve moves available to the player, but that is expected to increase in the final product.[5]

To begin playing the game, the player will first create a virtual character and allocate points to six different ability stats (Strength, speed, Stamina, chin, Heart, Technique). These stats determine how well the virtual character can fight. The actual 1:1 tracking motion is not affected by stats, but the higher the speed stat the faster the response. The amount of damage that the character can do per punch is also modified by stats.

Training the character in the game gym with exercise mini-games gives points to the player allowing them to upgrade the virtual character's ability stats, similar to rpg games. The developers have stated that throwing a punch with proper form aids in the actual gameplay.

PlayStation Move is a motion-sensing game controller platform for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) video game console by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). Based on a handheld motion controller wand, PlayStation Move uses the PlayStation Eye camera to track the wand's position, and inertial sensors in the wand to detect its motion. First revealed on June 2, 2009,[4] PlayStation Move launched in mainland Europe and most Asian markets on 15 September 2010,[2] in Australasia on 16 September 2010,[2] in North America and the UK on 17 September 2010,[3][2] in Japan on 21 October 2010.[1] Hardware available at launch included the main PlayStation Move motion controller, a supplementary PlayStation Move navigation controller, and an optional PlayStation Move charging station[5] It competes with the Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus and Kinect motion control systems for the Wii and Xbox 360 home consoles, respectively.

Although PlayStation Move is implemented on the existing PlayStation 3 console, Sony stated that it treated Move's debut as its own major "platform launch", planning an aggressive marketing campaign to support it.[6] The tagline for PlayStation Move from E3 2010 was "This Changes Everything",[7] including partnerships with Coca-Cola, as part of the "It Only Does Everything" marketing campaign which debuted with the redesigned "Slim" PlayStation 3.

Grand Theft Auto IV is a sandbox-style action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North,[16] and released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 video game consoles in Europe, North America and Oceania, on 29 April 2008,[17] and in Japan on 30 October 2008.[18] A Windows version of the game was released in North America on 2 December 2008 and in Europe on 3 December.[7][8][6] It was made available on Steam on 4 January 2009.[19] It is the sixth 3D game in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Two episodic packs have since been released for the Xbox 360, the first entitled The Lost and Damned, released on 17 February 2009. The second is entitled The Ballad of Gay Tony, released on 29 October 2009.[20][21] Both episodes were released for PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows on 13 April 2010[22] in North America and on 16 April[22] 2010 in Europe.[23]

The game is set in a redesigned rendition of Liberty City, a fictional city based heavily on modern day New York City. It follows Niko Bellic, a war veteran from Russia. [24] He comes to the United States in search of the American Dream,[25] but quickly becomes entangled in a world of gangs, crime, and corruption. Like other games in the series, GTA IV is composed of elements from driving games and third-person shooters, and features "open-world" gameplay that gives players more control over their playing experience. It is the first console game in the series to feature an online multiplayer mode.

As the first game of the critically acclaimed series to appear on seventh generation consoles, Grand Theft Auto IV was widely anticipated. A major commercial and critical success, it broke industry records with sales of around 3.7 million units on its first day of release and grossing more than $500 million in revenue in the first week, selling an estimated 6 million units worldwide.[26][27] As of 9 June 2010, the game had sold over 17 million copies.[28] It is the all-time highest-scoring game on three professional critic review-aggregating websites: TopTenReviews,[29] GameRatio[30] and GameTab. It is also the highest rated current-generation game on Metacritic[31] and MobyGames.[32]

I was so letdown by New Vegas that I've started playing Fallout 3 again, just to remind myself that the franchise can be brilliant when it wants to be. It's probably the most open and varied game that there'll ever be. Anyone can live, or die and quite a lot of the time, killing one person will have repercussions later in the game, be it good or bad.

So my advice is don't bother with New Vegas, a poor rehash and stick with Fallout 3 instead because it's such a good game.

They're somewhat similar to the Fallout games, but far better and medievalish. Still hooked and I've played for about 4 days solid, very rare that a game keeps me hooked for this long.

In the meantime, Pokemon Black is fantastic. It's amazing how they keep coming up with brilliant ideas and concepts for these games.
