This is a strange one - this week there are a couple of games coming out that completely surprised me. Meaning, I had no idea they were coming out this soon, but bam - here they are. It's a good thing, I think!
Take Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition - no idea is was coming out this week. Shadows of the Damned - no idea it was coming out this week.
It's weird, since I was fully anticipating the release of both games!
Ah well, never mind - on with the show!
Cars 2 (Wii/DS/360/PS3) What is it? Game of the sequel to the original which also had a game of the movie. Should you care? I often wondered why Pixar wanted to make a sequel to their worst movie. Then I went to a party where every single baby was wearing an item of 'Cars' clothing. Now I know why. Oh, and the game is probably rubbish.
Shadows of the Damned (360/PS3) What is it? The game is coming out this week? Eh? I honestly did not see this coming. This is Goichi Suda's latest effort, created in conjunction with Capcom legend Shinji Mikami. Should you care? All signs point to yes.
Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (360/PS3) What is it? Again, I had no idea this was coming out this week - but this one makes more sense since it's just an update with extra characters and such-like. Should you care? I've already bought this game twice, not sure I want to buy it a third time. Great entry level package though. Street Fighter IV remains one of my favourite games this generation.
