Hey guys, remember me? I'm This Week In Games, the little post that could. You thought I was dead and buried, but today I RISE FROM MY GRAVE. Because, get this, actual interesting video games are being released this week!
I know, crazy right. There are hardly a massive amount of games being released this week, but the ones that are being released are a pretty big deal.
Darksiders II (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? Sequel to Darksiders, the sleeper hit that tickled the fancy of everyone who likes Zelda. This is a game that replaces keys and locks with swords and eyeballs. To open the door you must stab the eyeball. Yep. This is a different kind of Zelda. Should you care? I say yes. The first was good and, from what I've seen of the sequel, it looks very good indeed.
New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS)
What is it? Yeah, you know what this is. It's Mario, on the 3DS. With more coins. Should you care? Of course, if you own a 3DS, this is worth caring about — but I have to say I was a little underwhelmed with this. I was expecting some new innovative stuff, particularly since they had a new team of younger designers working on the game. I've only played through the first couple of worlds so far. Hopefully things step up a bit after that.
Sleeping Dogs (360/PS3/PC)
What is it? The game that was supposed to be a True Crime sequel then was supposed to be cancelled, then became a thing again. It's an open world game with some pretty sophisticated combat mechanics. Should you care? I say yes. This game won't change lives, but I have heard good things. Looking forward to checking it out at home.
