This issue will cover a few game-related recommendations.FIFA12 updates(PC): A month ago EA Sports released the much awaited patch for FIFA12 which reflects the changes of the January transfer window in the game. It also brings with it the typical enhancements that we have come to expect from EA Sports in their January releases. Along with the updated squads, players have been given more accurate faces and hairstyles (eg: Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been given an afro). Also improved is the Player Impact Engine that was introduced in the October release of the game. Much maligned earlier for making the game more unrealistic rather than realistic, the coders at EA have come up with a much refined version and it does seem to have rectified the over-enthusiastic nature of the earlier version and surely seems the way forward now. Another bit of news sure to excite those bored with the manager and be-a-pro modes is the availability of an EURO12 game mode as downloadable content. The update concerning the team squads and game play has already been released while the EURO12 expansion is scheduled to be released on the 24th of April.Angry Birds – Space (iOS, Android): Rovio Entertainment Ltd. have finally released another version of their ultra-popular Angry Birds franchise, Angry Bird – Space. This time the raging fowls find themselves in space with their omnipresent nemesis- the green pigs. Those who thought that the franchise was getting a bit long in the tooth, think again because this game offers with it not only the expected updates of new birds but also some interesting interstellar physics variations. As we have come to expect from Rovio, this version also has a huge number of levels and themes to keep one interested (though iOS owners may have to shed a few extra bucks for the full version). So happy slingshooting!
