NEW GAMES FOR THE WEEK OF 5/10
Battlestations: Pacific (PC, X360)
Desktop Tower Defense (DS)
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus (WII)
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel (PS3, X360)
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2 – Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon (PS2)
As you can see above, this week isn’t really showing anything that I’d eventually get. However, the Shin Megami Tensei series has always been one of high quality, so I can recommend Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2 to those that enjoy those games wholeheartedly.
NEW GAMES FOR THE WEEK OF 5/17
Bionic Commando (PS3, X360)
Boom Blox Bash Party (WII)
Steal Princess (DS)
Terminator Salvation (PC, PS3, X360)
UFC 2009 Undisputed (PS3, X360)
For the second week it’s looking much better. I wasn’t anything other than confused with the UFC demo and the Terminator game’s an iffy choice since it’s a movie tie-in, but some may like them. I know that many are looking forward to Punch-Out, but I’ll be picking the other series revival in Bionic Commando. From what I’m hearing from those in the beta, multiplayer is sounding really good.
RETRO GAME SUGGESTIONS
Code Name: Viper (NES)
These last two games are ones that I’ve known of for many years and only just now tried them out. Both are excellent games worth finding and picking up if you’re looking for something that’s not so new, but terrific all the same.
Code Name: Viper (released in Japan as Ningen Heiki Dead Fox) is an action platform shooter by Capcom for the NES. It ranges in price from $1.00-$7.50.
Truxton (known in Japan as Tatsujin) is a great early shoot-’em-up for the Genesis by Toaplan. It ranges in price from $5.00-$15.00.
A pretty cheap alternative, wouldn’t you say? That’ll do it for this time. Thanks for stopping by.
