I came across this awesome video for Gran Turismo 5 which shows a Dodge doing one of the most mind boggling back flips in my recent memory. This one looks like it has been taken straight from a Hollywood movie. First of all the Ford clashes with another car, which for some reason sets it to do an amazing full three sixty degree back flip. After that the car just lands safely and the driver goes on to do what he does best.
He’s a cute, fluffy black panther cub and his name is Blackjack (well, hey, if we’re naming them after confectionary then Blackjack seems like a damn good name to me). I’m not really exaggerating when I say that, when it comes to many of the younger gamers that this game is aimed at, the feline cub they pick out from the initial line-up of five will quickly charm its way into their hearts, and maybe even yours too. I thoughtLittleBigPlanet was endearing, but Kinectimals takes it to a whole other level - More Info @ GamrReview
The last racing game of 2010 is here. Although MX vs ATV: Reflex is fresh out, but it is a year old console port while Nail'd is a fresh off-road racing game on the market. I especially can vouch for the developer "Techland" as I am a fan of their Xpand Rally 1. That game was far ahead of its time in terms of its graphics. Here they have an offroad bike/ATV racing game that features insane stunts and even insane tracks to play them on. The game is totally arcadish, with ridcoulously big jumps and even those filled with obstacles like planes, trains, trees and even hot air balloons. If you are looking for an offroad game for fun sake only then Nail'd is a good contendor - Download @ Official Site

Overview – Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is this week’s top debut with almost identical sales for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Six games debuted in the top 50 with two of those games for multiple platforms, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The top 22 games sold 100,000 or more units with five of them selling over 500,000 units. Hardware sales continue to rise, however the Wii and the handhelds have seen the greatest increases.
Assassins Creed 2.5: Brotherhood is fresh out in the market and has sold around a million copies on console. PC version is still due out in Feb 2011, and Ubisoft has already confirmed Assassins Creed 3 for 2011. Previously the trend was that they would release Prince of Persia and Assassins Creed on alternate years. Just like Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon, but now it seems that Ubisoft is going to make it a yearly basis thing. Although it does mean more games for us, but it also means less quality and lack of proper marketing and hype creation time. e.g. Prince of Persia: Forgotten sands was a good game but lacked the depth of story of any of previous Prince of Persia games. And it was over shadowed by marketing of Assassins Creed. Even though AC2 and AC:Brotherhood are both success but it did come at a price of undermining Prince of Persia.
The enormously anticipated Gran Turismo 5 opened to some huge sales on PS3 this week. In just two days on the market in the Americas and EMEAA and one day in Japan, VGChartz estimates that over 1.8 million copies of the game were sold. Breaking this down by region, over 55% were sold in EMEAA with the remainder equally split between the Americas and Japan.
First week sales are expected to hit around 2.4 - 2.5 million units, which would put sales roughly on par with the last full console installment, Gran Turismo 4 and in the top fiveopenings of all time on PS3 behind Black Ops, ModernWarfare 2, Final Fantasy XIII and Grand Theft Auto IV. In Europe, GT5 set overall sales records in many smaller countries but performance wasn't good enough in major markets like the UK (where Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto and FIFA dominate) to set an overall sales record.
MX vs. ATV Reflex marks the highly anticipated return of the best-selling off-road racing franchise and features the all-new Rhythm Racing 2.0 physics engine, Rider Reflex control system and real-time terrain deformation. The Rider Reflex control system provides unparalleled precision and fluidity by separating machine steering from body positioning, which allows the independently controlled rider to shift his weight, perform death-defying stunts and avoid potentially devastating wrecks. Unprecedented terrain deformation creates ever-changing courses as off-road vehicles carve lines and deep ruts that have a real-time impact on gameplay and remain persistent through the full length of each race.

From architecture to engineering, communication to transportation, humans have invented and developed extraordinary wonders. Engineers take the discoveries of scientists and mathematicians to make practical things, from roads and bridges to weapons and vehicles.

Along the way, we'll see advancements in materials, technology, and construction techniques, and we'll learn the stories of how and why these engineering feats became important to the world.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a lovely driving experience, and what makes it more special is its 26 soundtracks. Although there are some non vocal tracks in the game which I dont like as they are just dramatic orchestral loops, but rest of the songs really suit the driving mood.
