Feature: Nintendo DS vs. Sony PSP? - By Tetsuo
Sony finally dipped its finger into the UK handheld market last week, some nine months after the PlayStation Portable launched in Japan. Fointy Pinger casts a critical eye over Sony's "Portable Entertainment Revolution" and wonders what sort of success the system is likely to achieve in the UK after the hype has died down.
Game: killer7 - By Tetsuo
"Press a button to move, another to aim and a third to shoot. Soon though, you have counter attacks and special moves to worry about. The shooting parts form the majority of the gameplay, the running about bits just look cool. It's satisfying, but largely undemanding. As I mentioned, Killer7 is about a story, a visual and aural mind-fuck."
