How weird is this: there are three games out this week with ‘lost’ in the title. There’s the Ubisoft’s tie-in of the perplexing TV series, the apparently quite good Xbox 360 RPG Lost Odyssey, and an incredibly belated conversion of Lost Planet for the PlayStation 3.

Impressions of Lost seem pretty mixed so far, but early reports suggest that it’s good looking and atmospheric, but easy and rather short at around 5 hours. Some of the voice-acting is approaching comedic too. Probably one for the fans, then.

There are a few other titles out with niche appeal, including Beautiful Katamari for the 360, flashy 2D brawler Guilty Gear Core for Wii, and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 for PlayStation 2. Reviews suggest that Asterix at the Olympic Games is surprisingly good too. It has got to be better than Spongebob: Atlantis Squarepantis, anyway.
