Shenanigans! I declare SHENANIGANS!

A couple of weeks ago, our new release round-up carried the headline Portal Kombat – because Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat were released. Very clever, you’ll agree. Today, Chart-Track have used the same headline for this week’s chart news. Blatant thievery!

Either that, or it’s quite an obvious play on words that’s probably been used in loads of places. It has: look.

Sorry, you didn’t come here for South Park-referencing pun-based tomfoolery. You came here for unadulterated CHART ACTION.

Well that’s going to be tricky, friend. You see, the reason Chart-Track resorted to a pun, rather than their more usual informative headline, is that there is NOTHING HAPPENING in this week’s chart.

Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat retain their respective positions at the top of the chart. The only one of last week’s new releases to bother the top 40 is Virtua Tennis 4, at #23. There’s no sign of Thor: God of Thunder, even in the single-format charts; early reviews suggest that the public isn’t missing much.

It has been a good week for games involving flapping about though: Just Dance 2 up five to #10, Michael Jackson: The Experience up five to #13, Kinect Sports up 14 to #17, Carnival Games: In Action up seven to #22.

With the recent DS versions of Pokemon at #12 and #14, Michael Jackson is between Black and White.

Loser of the week: Bulletstorm, down 14 to #38. Clearly it was not deemed an appropriate way to celebrate the royal wedding.

Having sold 3 million copies of Michael Jackson: The Experience on Wii, DS and PSP, Ubisoft are now ready to unleash the late ‘King of Pop’ onto Kinect and PlayStation Move. It’s not the only Kinect game out this week either – Fantastic Pets also joins Jackson. There’s a demo on Xbox Live if you’re curious as to what owning your own unicorn would be like. Quite girly, I’d imagine.

Blade have been making snooker games for years so there’s no reason not to assume that WSC Real 2011 – out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 – is pretty good.

Then on DS there’s Midnight Mysteries: Edgar Allen Poe, Dodge Racing: Charger vs Challenger, LEGO Ninjago and Bookworm from Pop Cap. As you can see in the image, they’ve managed to get the LEGO trees looking spot-on in LEGO Ninjago.

Just one Wii game out this week it would seem – Spongebob Squigglepants which is compatible with THQ’s uDraw accessory. It has been developed by WayForward, who did Batman: The Brave and Bold and Contra 4, so it might be alright.

Next week: Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, SOCOM: Special Forces, Conduit 2, Puzzle Bobble Universe, Operation Flashpoint: Red River and Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection on PSP.

Never mind being bad, Michael Jackson: The Experience has had a good week – it’s up from #32 to #6. Poor old Epic Mickey can only wish for such luck – it still hasn’t managed to enter the top 40. Donkey Kong Country Returns swings in at #13 though while Super Mario All-Stars makes a chart appearance at #22.

Gran Turismo 5 has lost its #1 placing after just one week – it’s now at #4 with Call of Duty: Black Ops back on top followed by FIFA 11 at #2 and Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood at #3.

Thanks to price cuts (it’s £19.99 this week at GameStation) Medal of Honor is back on the rise going from #25 to #14. Harry Potter: The Deathly Hallows has done the opposite going from #15 to #27. If there was a decent game attached to the license I would imagine that it would knocking around the top 10 still. Learn this lesson for next time, EA.

Reviews of Epic Mickey may not have been epic, but it hasn’t even sold well enough to get into the top 40 chart this week. The best it can do is #11 in the Wii chart. Maybe it’ll do a little bit better in America? Who knows.

There’s a new #1 though – Gran Turismo 5 has shoved Call of Duty: Black Ops from the top of the pile. Two games have re-entered the top 10 as well – Art Academy has somehow (and rather amazingly) risen from #27 to #8 while Fallout: New Vegas rises from #13 to #10.

Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare proves that not everybody has access to DLC – it’s at #14 this week. Michael Jackson: The Experience moonwalks (too clichéd?) in at #32; Vanquish re-enters at #38.

Word of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II’s failings must be spreading – it has gone from #15 to #28. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is on the up though, going from #20 to #15.
