Most Wanted: Everybody's Golf 5

Every Tuesday, I look at a game on my Most Wanted list and discuss why I want it so much as well as some details from the game.

Name: Everybody's Golf 5

Note: Also known as Hot Shots Golf 5 (US) and Minna no Golf 5 (Japan)

Release Date: June/July for Japan

Format: PS3

Developer: Sony/Clap Hanz


Official company site

What is it?

The popular and addictive Everybody's Golf series returns to laugh in the face of realism in games!

Why is it on the list?

The series has always had a place in my heart right from the first time I played number 1. Since then, it's gone on to be a popular franchise and one of Sony's more loved game series. Addictive golfing, hilarious characters and a game that shows the phrase "easy to learn, difficult to master" ringing true. There is no stopping the series, fresh from celebrating it's 10th anniversary.

There is a demo for this game on the Japanese Playstation Store. It is possible to access the demo if you are outside Japan, so what are you waiting for? Get it now!

Last Week (4th June to 10th June)

Slowly getting back to normal. No more long trips planned for the next couple of months so a chance to relax and get back to some sort of semblance of normality.

That normality was disturbed slightly though when I looked at GamesCampus' website and found 2 new games there in testing. I liked the look of Manga Fighter, but wasn't too worried about Fishing Champ (since then though, I've been more tempted, thanks to my form in liking fishing mini-games in Okami and Dark Chronicle).

I took a more in depth look at Jeanne D'Arc as well, being on the wanted list. Quite a number of releases this week, unusual for the summer. Finally, I took a quick look at Dragon Quest IX from the watch list. A main game from a big franchise on a handheld? What's the world coming to?
