Unlike the previous three weeks, this time there’s three games I’m looking forward to, but only two I can get at the moment. Bastion is the one I’m interested in, but I hope it gets an eventual release on PSN.

It’s been awhile since a movie-based game has looked like it could be pretty good and Captain America: Super Soldier is that game.

El Shaddai is the final title and probably the one which has me the most curious. It’s Ignition Entertainment’s first and last self-developed game. It currently has a demo available. I liked what I played, but I can easily see it not being for most people.

New Releases 2011: February 13-26

Being a fan of the Contra series, I’m excited for Hard Corps: Uprising. I’ll just have to wait a bit longer for the PS3 version. With Splinter Cell: Conviction getting a release on the Macintosh I’m holding out some hope a PS3 port is in the cards at some point.

Okay, enough of what I wish to happen and onto what is happening that I’m interested in.

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I’m not looking to get Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at the moment. But I did hear it doesn’t play as close to its prequel as it does play more like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. Still I’m not totally against eventually giving this game a look.

As with any game which gets a bad rap from shit mongers like Fox News, I will be getting a new copy of Bulletstorm at some point. Knowingly lying by saying such dumb shit from so-called “experts” like this game will make you want to rape will get any game my full support.

The Dreamcast Collection for the Xbox 360 consists of Sega Bass Fishing, Sonic Adventure, Space Channel 5 Part 2, and Crazy Taxi for anybody wondering what’s included.

These next two weeks of game releases are quite large as one might suspect since now we’re getting into the holiday release schedule.

My pick for this time is a game that will undoubtedly win Game of the Year from some publications when award season comes around. That game is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. I also have to give a mention to Half-Minute Hero. By the looks of the demo, it will offer a slightly different gaming experience.
