Say hi to William Grey and Nikola Tesla, stars of Capcom's Dark Void. Will, Nik, say hi to the Kotaku readers. Why the personal introductions? Because Dark Void is the only game out this week.
Will is the square-jawed, Boy's Own Adventure styled hero. He's voiced by Nolan North, he of Uncharted fame. And guess what? Will Grey is basically Nathan Drake. I know, I'm in shock too.
Nikola is the well-groomed chap in the dapper brown waistcoat. He isn't voiced by Nolan North. Phew. The same Tesla who revolutionised electrical engineering over 100 years ago, Nikola finds himself trapped in a hostile parallel universe with Will. Together they whip up crazy inventions - like a jet pack - to fight an alien race.
Do you wanna hang out with Will and Nik this week?
New releases for the w/c January 18:
Dark Void (360, PS3) What Is It? Third-person shooter that mixes in aerial combat and a unique vertical cover system that ironically doesn't scale any great height. Should You Care? In a slow week, it's worth a look if corny, campy B-movies are your thing.
