Game Releases (4 – 8 May 2009)


Sanctification – The religious ceremony in which something is made holy.

Now you can’t say that there was nothing worthwhile in this week’s Game Releases post. At least you have learned a new word.

As for my game of the week i choose…..hmmmmm…. Let me see….Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: Fright Of The Bumblebees because i like the word Bumblebee. Eurogamer review “Fans of Telltale Games or fans of Wallace & Gromit will be far from horrified by the results….”. Link . Great endorsement, don’t you think?

If you are not excited about this week’s releases then you might want to watch The Visitor and Waltz with Bashir. The former is an excellent film whereas the latter is a visually impressive and interesting documentary (although historically dubious).

About the Author


Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life. Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded,, and on his personal blog,
