Trailers are fun. And you didn’t even have to stage a protest to get them.
2D platformers are all the rage. And this one is… IN SPACE!!! It’s supposed to be funny, but I would never, ever break out the old “A flat miner” joke if I were trying to impress someone with my wit. The floaty parts with screwy gravity look fun though, and there is a chance that it might actually be funny. Who knows? I’ll find out when you do, when it’s released September 27th for $US9.99. Unless of course I don’t, because I’ve played it beforehand. In that case I’ll be sure to tell you all about what you have to look forward to. Or hide from.
Payday: The Heist
If you play your cards right, you could get this game for free when it releases on October 4th. If not, then you’ll have to pay $19.99. Free is a great price for a game. It’s kind of like stealing. But legal. Unlike what you’ll be doing in Payday, which is exactly like stealing, and the illegal kind too. So I guess I should tell you not to steal things, or I might get sued or something.
Sideway: New York
I take my job as a Video Game Journalist very seriously. I’m constantly aware of my responsibility to you, Dear Reader — to inform you in an objective manner that removes myself from the topic at hand and tells you why something is or isn’t worth your time in a manner that’s succinct and clinically precise. With that said, HOLY CRAP DOES THIS LOOK COOL I WANT TO PLAY IT NOW. I would totally shell out the $US9.99 this will cost on October 11th — but only so I could inform you all about it, of course. Don’t let that influence you, or anything.
