Man, it’s been ages since we’ve done a ‘This Week In Games’, mostly because there hasn’t really been that many games. This week? Well there are games. Otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this post!
There aren’t any massive humdingers, but there are a fair few decent games coming out this week. Might as well lap it up, because July is pretty much dead on that front. Dry July indeed.
LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (360/PS3/Wii/PC/3DS/Vita)
What is it? Batman. LEGO. Together at last.
Should you care? Apparently it’s pretty good!
London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games (360/PS3)
What is it? A timely reminder that, yes, the Olympics are coming and, yes, they will ruin TV for a fortnight.
Should you care? It’s actually an Aussie developed game, but I don’t have high hopes.
Ratchet and Clank Trilogy (PS3)
What is it? One of those HD remaster things.
Should you care? Personally I’ve bought a lot of these things, and I’ve never spent that much time with them. I always play for a couple of hours and move on to new games. Just me, maybe.
Spec Ops: The Line (360/PS3)
What is it? An excuse to listen to Hold The Line by Toto? Undoubtedly. It’s also a promising shooter set in Dubai in a post apocalyptic waste land of some kind.
Should you care? I’d wait for reviews.
Steel Battalion: Heavy Armour (360)
What is it? New entry into the series featuring hideous broken Kinect controls.
Should you care? Get it off me, get it off me!
The Amazing Spider-Man (360/PS3/Wii//3DS)
What is it? The game of the movie of the comic!
Should you care? I can’t be sure, but I’m guessing no.
