FPS = First Person Sickness

I tried out Halo 3 last night but unfortunatly as I suffer from FPS after about half an hour of playing I began feeling nauseus and dizzy and was not able to play much longer.

I have suffered from FPS ever since DOOM was released and it has hampered my gaming career. I have not been able to play fast paced first person shooters for extended periods of time. Some have far worse symptoms then others and my symptoms from Halo 3 have been the worst I have experienced for some time.

Mixed Previews

There are a couple of new previews for Paradise from the EA  Studio Showcase, Gamespots is a glowing report siting the sense of speed and updates to the use of the camera in the game.IGN's is a little more subdued as they got lost in Paradise City and were having a little trouble getting used to the size of the car.

Co-op Missions in Paradise!

New Paradise info available on 1up.com. Alex Ward talks about how Paradise online is revolutionary with no lobbies, no waiting, a seamless experience and focus on co-operative and social gameplay with lots of simple and fun challenges that groups of players can do together.

Keep Out!

As hardly anyone on my friends list plays Burnout anymore, seriously! Last night I had 23 friends online and the only one playing Revenge was Xandu!!  I have spent some time this week watching gamer tv to have a look at some other games that I might be missing out on.

I have watched a bit of xleague.tv which is just a little wierd, all e-sports leagues and seeing footage of people playing GOW and Motorstorm with dodgy commentary. But they do have some kinda cool discussion and magazine shows too.
