After a few weeks jam-packed with new games, this week brings just four.
And not just any four either! Two of them were meant to come out last week and the other are sports games.
Battle Fantasia is OK, if you like fighting games. As is The Bigs, albeit if you like baseball. But to be honest, I’ve no idea if Buffy or the misleadingly-titled Ico Soccer are any good. So, hey, if you’re bold enough to pick them up this week, let us know how that goes!
UPDATE: Just heard from 2K that The Bigs 2 has slipped a week to July 16. Bah!
New releases for the w/c July 6:
Battle Fantasia (360, PS3) What Is It? Sexy fighting game from the makers of Guilty Gear and now finally seeing a local release after endless delays. Should You Care? A solid choice while waiting for King of Fighters XII.
The Bigs 2 (360) What Is It? Some sort of bat and ball sports activity, I think. Should You Care? I hear it’s pretty good if you’re into that sort of thing.
Buffy (DS) What Is It? Buffy the Vampire Slayer. On the DS. Intriguing! Should You Care? Screenshots suggest a 3D action/adventure/brawler scenario, but I honestly have no idea if it’s any good.
Ico Soccer(DS) What Is It? Football sim where you instruct your players in real-time by tapping and drawing arrows on the touchscreen. Should You Care? Just don’t go on thinking it’ll feature a small boy holding the hand of an ethereal girl.
