When Sonic Mega Collection Plus was released on PlayStation 2 and Xbox, it managed to take the top spot in the chart, meaning that Sega Mega Drive Collection – reviewed here – could potentially ‘do the business’ for Sega. It’s only Â£14.99 with postage at Choices too. If it gets outsold by the dismal looking Little Britain: The Videogame – also out this week – then there’s going to be trouble.
On Nintendo DS there are a couple of curios: stylish but slightly dull RPG Contact, and New Zealand Story Revolution. Reviews suggest that the latter is far better than the rest of Rising Star’s retro updates. Plus Tiki the Kiwi is uber cool.
Then on PSP there’s Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony. It’s the first console effort in the long running series, and going by the screenshots it looks a lot better than the Untold Legends games. You can have up to four characters in a party, with one of them a pet.
Speaking of which, Ubisoft are releasing another two Nintendogs clones on DS this week, in the form of Pawly Pets: My Pet Hotel and Pawly Pets: My Vet Practice. Clearly Catz, Dogs, Hamsterz and Horsez didn’t fill their animal husbandry quota for this financial year.
