Notable Releases: October 21–27

This has to be one of the busiest weeks, in terms of game releases, that I’ve ever seen. No matter what platform(s) you own, there is at least one big release for each.
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (PS3)
Insomniac is one of the best developers around, and it looks like they’ve cranked out another [...]


Notable Releases: September 24-30

Halo 3 (Xbox 360)
The mother of all (dodgy) game marketing campaigns comes to a head this week with the monstrous, unholy launch of Halo 3. This will obviously give the 360 a huge boost in North America; the game had 1.5+ million pre-orders alone. What else can I say about it? It’s Halo Fucking Three. [...]

Notable Releases: September 17-23

Stuntman: Ignition (PS3)
Otherwise known as Race Car: Rent At Small Cost. The reviews aren’t exactly glowing with praise. If you were a fan of the original Stuntman, which means you have no mortal soul, then by all means go buy it.
Eternal Sonata (Xbox 360)
This one is a bit of a breakout from Namco-Bandai with the [...]

Notable Releases: September 10-16

As foretold in the ancient prophecies, the third week of September in the year Two Thousand Aught Eight shall bring forth “Assloads of Pixelated Entertainments, Numbering Not Less Than Seven Such Quantities”.
Now, I’ve done the math on this for our loyal readers: seven Assyrian Assloads (of the period) converts into precisely 12.5734 Metric Assloads, so [...]


Notable Releases: September 3-9

Not a whole lot this particular week, but the games, they are a-comin’. The fall floodgates have been opened and hell is coming with them. You hear me?!? HELL IS COMI*cough* *hack* … ahem.
Stranglehold (Xbox 360)
Oh, look who decided to make an appearance! It’s Inspector Tequila! (Such a Japanese name.) [Edit – and I am [...]


Notable Releases: August 20-26

The release situation picks up quite a bit this week. Notables:
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (PS3, PSP)
Better late than never. The futuristic tactical 3rd-person shooter makes its way to PS3 with some additional bonus maps. I was underwhelmed at the demo but I know this game has a loyal following and scored quite high on [...]


Notable Releases: August 13-19

Now we are in the deep, dark recesses of the summer doldrums but the floodgates will soon be opened. Middle of the year is always crap for game releases.
I think EA’s annual Madden sausage shipped for PS3. Bo-ring.

HUD: Week of July 30 - August 5

Just spent the weekend dodging mosquitoes vampires, quaffing rum potions and getting blasted by the sun infernal daystar. I’m weak. I need to stay inside my cave for awhile. So let’s see what we have…. game releases this week:
Mario Strikers Charged (Wii)
The Wii follow-up to the hit GCN title. The name is a little disingenuous [...]

HUD: Week of July 23-29

Some of these were mysteriously bumped from last week, so there’s a few repeats here. You’re not stroking out. It’ll all be ok.
NASCAR 08 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS2)
Only the most cynical of minds* would consider it a fine and worthwhile idea to convince the gaming public that it wants a NASCAR videogame. You too [...]

HUD: Week of July 16-20

The month that marked the life of Julius Caesar is now the month of football. What happened.
NCAA Football 08 (Xbox 360, PS3)
This is the EA one. I also believe that this is the title that runs on 60 FPS on the 360, and only 30 FPS on the PS3. (Can you say, “third-string programmers?” Then [...]
