I've been dreading This Week In Games for months now. This is, of course, the launch week for the 3DS - hence the zillions of mediocre 3DS launch titles in amongst the handful of awesome titles. We're hoping a couple of top notch games don't get lost in the flood - namely Shift 2: Unleashed and WWE All Stars, both of which I think look a bit spiffing.
Regardless - let the 3DS massacre begin.
Asphalt 3D (3DS) What is it? 3DS racer in Three DEEEE! Should you care? Not really up to scratch.
Bejeweled Twist (DS) What is it? It's Bejeweled... with a 'Twist'. Should you care? I didn't even know this was coming out. I'm going to guess 'no'.
Combat of Giants: Dinosaur Strike (3DS) What is it? One of Ubisoft's new 3DS games - about Dinosaurs striking one another in the face. Should you care? RAARRR!
Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars (3DS) What is it? New Ghost Recon for the 3DS. Should you care? By all accounts it's one of the must have launch titles on the 3DS. I'm not kidding!
LEGO Star Wars 3 (Every Format You Can Imagine, And Some You Can't) What is it? Another LEGO game. Yes. Another one. Should you care? I can't bring myself to bother myself with this at all.
Naruto Shippuden Kizuna Drive (PSP) What is it? The new Naruto game datte-bayo! Should you care? Not too bad actually. I give this game a Kakashi out of Jiraiya.
Nintendogs+cats (3DS) What is it? It's Nintendogs - now with added cats. Should you care? I'm not proud of myself, but this has been my most played 3DS game so far.
Plants vs Zombies (DS) What is it? The latest installment in the never ending war between plants and those bastard zombies. Should you care? I'd buy it on the iPhone if I were you.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 (3DS) What is it? Soccer's greatest series goes THREEE DEEEE! Should you care? Not quite there yet.
Rabbids 3D (3DS) What is it? The Rabbids go THREEEEEEEEE DDEEEEEEE! Should you care? It wouldn't be one of my first launch picks.
Rayman 3D (3DS) What is it? Blah blah blah THREEE DEEE! Should you care? Not too bad I suppose.
Ridge Racer (3DS) What is it? (Don't make a Kaz Hirai joke, don't make a Kaz Hirai joke) It's RRRRRRRIDGE RRRACER! (Aw crap.) Should you care? I though this had the most inconsistent 3D, but the US guys thought it had the best 3D. So I'm confused.
Samurai Warriors Chronicle (3DS) What is it? I honestly don't care... Should you care? So much 3DS shovelware...
Shift 2 Unleashed (360/PS3/PC) What is it? Sequel to decent racing sim. Should you care? I liked the first one, and this is looking 'schmancy'.
Splinter Cell Chaos (3DS) What is it? It's Sam Fisher... in the third dimension! Should you care? I'm withholding judgement until I can see this one in action.
Super Monkey Ball (3DS) What is it? So many 3DS games... Should you care? I guess if you've got loads of money, you might consider picking this up.
Super Slam Hunting North American Bundle (Wii) What is it? What is this? Who is buying this? Should you care? No. No. No. No.
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition (3DS) What is it? Probably the one must have launch title on the 3DS. Should you care? Yes. You should care. Especially if you haven't played Street Fighter IV before.
The First Templar (PC/360) What is it? Will this list of new releases ever end? Should you care? Probably not.
The Sims (3DS) What is it? It's The Sims. They're now in glorious 3D. Should you care? Only if you picked up the JB Hifi pack, in which you were forced to buy The Sims.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 (360/PS3/PC/Wii) What is it? A golf game. Should you care? It's usually good. For a golf game.
Tomb Raider Trilogy Pack (PS3) What is it? One of them fancy HD remaster things. Should you care? Maybe.
We Sing Down Under (Wii) What is it? A karaoke game packed with Aussie songs. Should you care? I'd rather douse myself in honey and chase after grizzly bears.
WWE All Stars (360/PS3/Wii/PSP) What is it? A top notch wrestling game for once. Should you care? If you love wrestling, you will love this game.
t is it?
