The Week In Games

The Week In Games

Guess how many games are coming out this week?

If you answered more than two, I appreciate your optimism. Everyone else, you’re either well aware of how sluggish the month of May can be for new releases… or you’ve taken a peek at the rest of the post.

Looks like this week would be a fine time to catch up on some older, unfinished games. Or perhaps, if you’re like me, you’ll be grabbing the Broken Steel DLC for Fallout 3.

New releases for the w/c May 4:

Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce (PSP) What Is it? The usual hack-and-slash Dynasty Warriors fare given a strong multiplayer focus, with up to four players able to join the battle. Should You Care? With a slight solo experience, you’ve got to ask yourself, “Can I persuade four friends to pick this up as well?” I think we know the answer to that.

Ultimate Ninja 4: Naruto Shippuden (PS2) What Is it? Part role-playing adventure, part one-on-one fighting game, all set in the popular manga world of Naruto. Should You Care? Word is the story and the fighting system are pretty shallow, leaving this as one of the weaker Naruto titles. Even fans should be cautious.


  • I decided to jump on the “Older games” band wagon by hitting up K-Mart’s game clearance. Decided to finally pick up Mirror’s Edge and Brothers in Arms for $40 each and I’ve been very happy with both =)

  • Looks like another week of SFIV for me. Although my save file corrupted and I have to start again. All my hard trials gone noooooooooooooo! Not to mention the hundred or so now wasted hours doing various challenges and getting all the characters. Capcom I love you but this is ballz.

    • Does this mean you can re-unlock achievements and score more gamer points on top of the ones you’ve already earned?

  • On a positive note, it does make it easier to keep my promise of ‘no more new games until I finish all the ones I bought and didn’t finish’.
