This Week’s Games
The DSi hits shelves this week at a rather pricey Â£149.99. Many high street stores will let you have one for half price if you trade in your DS Lite though. Youâ€™d think that Nintendo would have a big new release to go alongside it, right? Wrong – thereâ€™s just a handful of obscure third-party releases including Lux Pain, Disgaea and Valkyrie Profile. Not quite the games that Phil and Fern themselves would play. Or the Rednapps.
If youâ€™re into all things stealthy and ninja-like youâ€™re well looked after with Ninja Blade on Xbox 360 and Tenchu: Shadow Assassins on both Wii and PSP out this week too. Eurogamer gave Ninja Blade a 7, calling it a â€œPanto Ninja Gaidenâ€. Tenchu: Shadow Assassins features a ninja cat, and thatâ€™s all you need to know.
There isnâ€™t a great deal else out, just the belated Wanted: Weapons of Fate movie licensed shooter and WSC Real 2009: World Snooker Championship on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The latter is probably quite good if you like that type of thing.
Next week: The Godfather II, Ultimate Band, We Rock and Away: Shuffle Dungeon.
