This Week In Games

It's not a huge week as far as game releases are concerned, but anything is better than last week's Nickelodeon Dance, right? Right? *tumbleweed*

Kinect Star Wars (360) What is it? It's a Star Wars game! For Kinect! You'll enter the Star Wars universe and use motion control to train and fight like a Jedi. Everything from using The Force to lightsaber battles will be done using your body. Should you care? When this was shown at E3 last year it was laggy and underwhelming, but if these issues have been ironed out (they've had almost a year to do it!) then it could be interesting! Personally, I find the Kinect a bit awkward for games like this (i.e. I'd rather have something in my hand for the lightsaber battles... something like a Wii controller), but hey — whatever floats your boat.

Devil May Cry Collection (360 and PS3) What is it? An HD collection of Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening. Should you care? If you've been put off trying the Devil May Cry series because your eyeballs explode at the sight of PS2 graphics, you now have no excuse. (Also, it's a neat series!)

Silent Hill: Downpour (360 and PS3) What is it? A new Silent Hill game! The eighth in the series, in fact! Should you care? It's received a mixed response from critics, but the overall consensus seems to be that it's not a highlight of the series and you probably wouldn't be missing out on much if you gave it a pass.

Will you be picking up any of these games this week? Have you made any recent purchases? Let us know what you've added to your shopping basket!

    "anything is better than last week’s Nickelodeon Dance, right? Right?"

    Sadly, no. Kinect Star Wars is not better.

    Silent Hill HD Collection is also out (I don't like calling it a collection though - it's Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 - still seems like a good purchase for $40 or so).

    Silent Hill Downpour was supposed to be out like 2 weeks ago, I got annoyed and ordered that and HD collection which were dispatched from ozgameshop last week.

    Now I play the waiting game.

    Oh boy! The DMC HD collection! I can't wait to play two great games!

    don't listen to the crap about downpour. despite tech issues, its a great game.

    JB Hi-Fi had Silent Hill: Downpour in stock last week.
