Fishing intrigues me. I can't say I've ever enjoyed partaking in the activity of angling. It's boring, smelly and often quite messy. Yet there's something about the romance of the sea and the reflective, almost meditative state you can attain while you wait... and wait. Something fascinating.
So when I spied Big Catch Bass Fishing 2 not only comes out this week but also promises to make use of the Wii's still woefully under-utilised Motion Plus peripheral, my intrigue and fascination heightened. I can't imagine it's anything other than terrible, but I'm perversely keen to check it out.
Anyone care to join me?
New releases for the w/c February 15:
Aliens Vs Predator (360, PS3, PC) What Is It? Sci-fi shooter that delivers scares and variety with its campaign spanning a trio of playable races. Should You Care? Developer Rebellion's previous game was the execrable Rogue Warrior.
Big Catch Bass Fishing 2 (Wii) What Is It? Fishing sim that supports the Wii's Motion Plus accessory and - seriously - a four-player online mode. Should You Care? Motion Plus fishing should be awesome. Could it be?
Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Day (PSP) What Is It? Remake of PS2 sequel in perhaps the finest strategy RPG series around. Should You Care? While far from bad, Disgaea 2 was always the weakest in the series.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity (PC) What Is It? Excellent 2009 space-faring real-time strategy title gets reissued and bundled with its two expansion packs. Should You Care? At only $39.95 this boxed retail version cheaper than the digital download option.
