While I may be running around like a headless chicken reviewing as much Kinect software as humanly possible for the impending release of Microsoft's motion-control peripheral - and subsequent embargo expiration (Thursday, 4am GMT if you're interested), Lee and Rich have been cracking on with the rest of October's titles.
Before we hear from the pair later on in the week on how Vanquish and The Force Unleashed 2 treated them, today we turn our attention to two of this year's lesser games - in terms of budget, marketing and, one can only assume, quality.
Both franchises under the microscope today didn't have a terribly impressive debut on the consoles in 2008 and 2009, but regardless, one is back as a sport of similar ilk - from snowboard to skateboard - and the other is back with your stock-standard sequel. Can Saw II and Shaun White Skateboarding turn a few heads this time around? Or are we totally kidding ourselves?
