Show me the way home. Home! I've been waiting weeks to say that.
We've also got another strong line-up of games, with reviews of EA's rebooted blockbuster Medal Of Honor, and muddy-as-hell puddle sim FIA World Rally Championship.

137w ago - Sony Associate Editor Nathan Ditum has shared a FirstPlay Episode 27 preview today, which arrives this Wednesday via PSN.
To quote: We've got a big, big episode of FirstPlay for you this week. Firstly, we've got more things to give away - extra Top Gun stuff for your PlayStation Home avatar and an exclusive FirstPlay dynamic theme, built with our own occasionally fair hands.
Then we've also got a stellar line-up of games. Two of the year's epicest adventures are given the full HD review treatment - Enslaved: Odyssey To The West and Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow. If you're a fan of Uncharted, or God Of War, or just good games, you'll want to take a long, hard look at what this pair have to offer.
We've also got a verdict on the slightly less stellar Quantum Theory (funeral march should be playing right about now) and a reviews round-up including HAWX 2, the actually very decent RUSE and Madden NFL 11.
On top of that we've got the best of the PlayStation Network, this week featuring an online review of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, a look at the latest minis, and reviews of Blade Kitten and the Move and 3D-enabled Flight Control HD. Land. LAND YOU IDIOTS!

This week we're giving away an exclusive Joe Danger avatar to brighten up your PSN profile, as well as his and her Top Gun t-shirts for PlayStation Home. We've also got reviews of Capcom's meaty undead massacre 'em up Dead Rising 2 and PlayStation Move chair combat racer Kung Fu Rider, plus a preview of mucky off-roader Nail'd, and some exclusive new footage of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
And there's more - in Network Highlights we've got a review of arcade blaster Alien Breed: Impact, a round-up of the latest PSP comics and PSN content, and another trio of awesome LittleBigPlanet levels that you can download and play right now. And in screenshot galleries there's sneaking action in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, very different RPG-ing in Dragon Age II and Costume Quest, and all-out sexiness in Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.
