The most notable title to be classified in the last week is SEGA and Platinum Games’ third-person shooter Vanquish, indicating that it’s well on the way to hitting its October release date. Those suspecting SEGA might baulk at launching a new shooter IP right in the middle of Halo Reach, Medal of Honor and Call of Duty: Black Ops should think again. Vanquish looks to have the sci-fi third-person shooter with robots and over-the-top acrobatics market all to itself this Christmas.
More surprising is HAWX 2 being rated already. It was only announced in May, shortly before E3, and Ubisoft has yet to give it a firm release date. Looks like action flight combat fans will have something to play this year after all.
Elsewhere, nothing out of the ordinary – a few add-ons, casual games and licensed guff – except for the first in the below list. I have no idea what it is. Google is no use. Anyone have any idea?
