This Week In Games
What are you buying this week?
Last year’s Battlestations: Midway was a great idea! Letting you jump from ship to plane to submarine in a battle is every History Channel junkie’s dream. It’s just a shame the execution couldn’t quite match the idea. Oh well! It sold well enough, and had enough potential, that Eidos are taking another crack at it, announcing today the game’s sequel, Battlestations: Pacific. It’s largely the same deal, though interestingly it’s also letting you take control of the Japanese forces, with two single-player campaigns on offer, one for each side (the first game only had a US campaign). Virtually distasteful kamikaze, anyone? Eidos reassumes Battlestations [GameSpot]
Well, somebody doesn’t know when they’re beat. Despite the announcement of a new major international games show in 2009, which is backed by the German industry and will be held in the city of Cologne, the organisers of the Leipzig Games Convention just don’t know how to quit. A Leipzig spokesperson has told Eurogamer.de: steht die Games Convention 2009 weiterhin im Kalender (For now, the 2009 Games Convention is still on the calendar).
Defiant! Though to be fair, they say they’ll be taking a longer look at the show’s survival prospects after speaking with publishers at this year’s show, where they’ll no doubt be told thanks, really, it’s been a great seven years.

With retailers slashing Xbox 360 HD DVD Player prices, now is a good time to pick one up! (Thinking of doing that myself.) But what about those who paid full price? They must be kinda bummed out. Or worse yet, those who paid full price for a lot of HD DVD stuff. Those like this poor bastard. Why Me [Danny Choo]
Cruel, fitting or just plain awesome? YOU DECIDE.
Oh, PS3 SingStar, how are you managing to blow such a sure thing? Since the game’s launch late last year it’s been a shell of an experience, with a crummy, limited tracklist making it a poor relation to the PS2′s varied and expansive libraries. In an effort to remedy this, Sony have been trying a little harder to update the game’s online SingStore recently, and will on March 7 continue this with a massive update, featuring 67 “new” songs. I say “new”, though, because they’re not new at all: most (might even be all) songs are already featured on the PS2 versions of the game.
Pity, that. Was really hoping for something new, and if not new, then at least varied. Ah well. Better luck next time, eh Sony?
Why, Take-Two, you hussy! Here EA were, thinking they were the only ones vying for your affections, when from out of nowhere, you reveal that EA aren’t the only ones. There are others. Scandalous! Take-Two aren’t revealing just who these others are, however, and won’t unless they are “legally required to do so”. All they are saying is that there are others, and that at the moment, they’re no more than “informal indications of interest in a business combination.” Which may be true, I don’t know, but from here that all sounds like a convenient way to drive EA’s offering price up by a few bucks.

Whew! Our Patapon contest is so over. We didn’t plan for this one to be tricky, we wanted it to be easy! But, apparently, we are tricky bastards. A buncha entries we got only answered one question — the first one. Not much of a scavenger hunt if there’s only one question, don’t cha think? Reading comprehension is so important. Too bad more folks didn’t read the Totoro post! What’s more, too bad some people gave SEVERAL ANSWERS to number seven. The four folks who hit all the high notes and got everything right are: nolifedopestar, Paul M., Pat O., sander_dutch
Hit the jump for the right answers and the bitter hate. Mmmmm, hate. Delicious!
