It’s time for another scintillating Hart & Usagi Podcast episode. In this corner it’s USGamer’s 10 best PlayStation 4 games and in the opposite corner it’s two guys who played almost none of them. A captivating match-up! Other showdowns include Ant-Man vs. Pixels, UK businesses vs. personal use, and EVO vs. Jamie Lee Curtis.

A few weeks ago when I saw the quick look of the Kane & Lynch 2 demo, I was interested in seeing if I’d like it. First, however, I wanted to get an idea of what the first game was like. The shooting was generic and sloppy and I was wanting my character to switch sides with R3 like it can be done in Uncharted.
I’m happy to report that those problems were taken care of for the sequel’s demo. The degrading digital video effects for the graphical style worked well too. It certainly feels like a more polished game this time around.
The one other demo I also tried out was Flower. My first thought was “What a tedious game.” My final thought was also “What a tedious game.” It’s clearly a looker, but not much is going on upstairs to keep me engaged.
A few weeks ago the first seven days of February was looking pretty good. Unless you’re looking for Burnout Paradise for the PC there’s nothing as fourhighprofilegames are now elsewhere.
NEW GAME FOR THE WEEK OF 2/1
Burnout Paradise (PC)
At least week number two of the month is looking up. I’m looking to get Retro Game Challenge right away since that surely won’t get a high print volume. I’m also interested in F.E.A.R. 2 after playing the demo. However, I’m not always keen on the horror genre so we’ll have to see.
NEW GAMES FOR THE WEEK OF 2/8
F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (PC, X360, PS3)
The House of the Dead: Overkill (WII)
LocoRoco 2 (PSP)
Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection (PS3, X360)
Legacy of Ys: Books I & II (DS)
Retro Game Challenge (DS)
Oh, and I can’t for get about Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection. You know, because I need more ways to play the same games. Some of the games in this collection I’ll now have the option of playing them on PS2, PSP, PS3, and the original way: Genesis. I guess the main lure here is possible online play and the Streets of Rage series all in one place.
