Xbox: ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth

If you had a Sega MegaDrive in the early 1990s, chances are you'll have heard of ToeJam and Earl. The coolest aliens in the galaxy provided me with many hours of fun, laughs and funky tunes in my youth. So when I heard that they were going to make another appearance, this time on the Xbox, I jumped for joy.

When Xbox Live launches in October, subscribers will be able to download extra levels and will also have the use of three more characters, including ToeJam's cousin, Nerdy ToeJam. It's a huge game that looks great and plays well on its own, though, so there's still more than enough fun to be had even if you're not hooked up to this service.

There are many elements of the original game in ToeJam & Earl III, including the boogie men (who creep up behind you and shout 'boogie-woogie-woogie' right in your earhole and scare you witless) and there's plenty of humour as well.

This is one game that makes you laugh out loud on a regular basis, and not many games are capable of that. The two-player option encourages cooperation rather than competition, and this means the game remains exactly what it was intended to be - damned good fun. Cool as funk.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
