Oh, summer, how I love thee. It is the time of year to catch up on all the games in your backlog while you wait for the holiday season to begin. Though usually plagued with the summer movie-games, every once in awhile a game comes out that gets some buzz. This week, it just so happens to be an Atlus game. Read on after the break to see.

^- What that says......


“Quick, call Juarez, ask for Captain America! The Smurfs are having a dance party! Bring the whole cartel! Stop.”

Imagine getting that telegram. Well, that really sums up what is coming out this week. Jump past the break to see more info on the games. Once I can figure out videos, I will be posting trailers as well.

Big Ol’ Releases- 01/17/2010

January 19, 2010 Leave a comment

This week’s releases are pretty light, with only a few noteable ones.

First up, from the Nintendo half, erm, third, we have NO retail Wii releases. Weird, huh? Wiiware got Muscle March ($5) and The Amazing Brain Train ($6). Wow. Have you ever seen “Human Tetris”, where the people have to make the pose to fit through the wall? Muscle March is similiar to that; you are chasing a thief through a series of walls, and must make the pose with the Wiimote and Nunchuck. I would say $5 could be spent on better games, but for families, it looks like entertainment. The Virtual Console got Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi from the Sega Genesis ($8).

The DS got two retail games; Bejeweled Twist ($19.99) and Glory of Heracles ($34.99). Wow, after checking in on Glory of Heracles, I found out some neat stuff. It’s a Nintendo RPG, with Kazushige Nojima as the scenario writer. Those that vaguely reconize the name will be happy to find out he worked with Square until 2003 and has been a freelance writer since. He has worked on games such as Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Subspace Emissary), and various other major RPG’s. DSiWare got a bundle of games; Dark Void Zero ($5), Starship Defense ($5), Chronos Twins ($5), and Me and My Dogs: Friends Forever ($8).

The PS2 actually got a game this week! Silent Hill: Shattered Memories ($29.99). I have heard this is probably one of the best games in the series, so fans might grab this one. The PS3 got the Rocketeer, erm, Dark Void ($59.99). If you’re not sure about the game, a demo is up on the PSN. I know I am interested in playing it.

The PSP also got Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, which I think I will be playing very soon.

On the Microsoft side of things, the 360 is also getting Dark Void ($59.99). XBLA is getting Death by Cube ($10) and Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgement ($15). Vandal Hearts: Flames of Judgement is a tactical RPG, and a prequel to the original Playstation Vandal Hearts game, by Konami. The Avatar Marketplace is getting some new attire, noteably MX vs. ATV outfits. Your deal of the week for Gold Members is twofold this week. Hasbro Family Game Night: Battleship is now the price it should have been all along, $5 instead of $10, and you can get Mass Effect: Bring Down the Sky & Pinnacle Station Packs for $3 each. Remember, those deals end this coming Sunday, January 24th.

Your Picks of the Week:
Nintendo: Glory of Heracles (DS)
Sony: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (PS2 or PSP)
Microsoft: Dark Void (PS3)
