Daily News – Safety Car in F1 2011, Mass Effect 3 FemShep Vote and GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

Happy Monday to everyone. Lets start the week off with some gaming news. We’ve tweaked the format of the news post slightly, so let us know what you think of it.

Super Ball Escape HD:

The popular iPad game about saving a robot ball from the evil corporation that created him can be download for free from the App store until the 30th July 2011. You tilt the iPad to steer the little steel ball around a series of increasingly complex mazes. It’s quite a tough game to master. Here’s a trailer for the game.

F1 2011:

Codemasters have tweeted that they are going to reveal at Gamescom in Aug if F1 2011 will feature the safety car or not. The safety car is something that fans of F1 2011 have asked to be included. If you’ve been watching this year’s F1 World Championship you will have noticed that the safety car makes an appearance in many of the races. A good example being the recent Canadian Grand Prix which started behind the safety car due to the heavy rain.

Mass Effect 3 - Blonde FemShep

This not the Shepard you're looking for. Move along.

Mass Effect 3:

Bioware are running a voting competition on their Mass Effect 2 Facebook page to decide on what the 3rd default FemShep (Female version of Commander Shepard) will look like in Mass Effect 3. Rather predictably the blonde Shepard is winning by a huge margin.

Can you all please vote on the Shepard that looks like she will save the Universe rather than sing in a manufactured girl band ;-) Note: You need to like the Mass Effect 2 page first before you can vote. My vote went to FemShep 4.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded:

We finish off the news with the reveal trailer to Activision’s latest rehash of the classic GoldenEye 007 Nintendo 64 game. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is a remake of the Wii remake of the original game. Any fans of the N64 classic considering getting this?
