This Week’s Games
Two games that have been knocking around on the release schedules for eons are finally out today. Recommended DS FPS Dementium has seen a change of publisher while the delay behind CID: The Dummy (which stands for Crash Impact Dummy: The Dummy, oddly) is a bit of a mystery. I reckon it might be because Oxygen wanted a Wii version as well as PlayStation 2 and PSP ones.
The only thing out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this week is Rock Band Song Pack 2. For a rare change it’s actually the PSP that has the most releases, with the likes of Phantasy Star Portable, Mytran Wars and Dragonball Evolution. The last is based on the â€œlive actionâ€ movie and been getting rubbish reviews. It didn’t even sell well in Japan, the only country where PSP games shift in decent numbers.
On Wii there’s the balance-board compatible Skate City Heroes. It looks uncannily like a game that the lovely Midas Interactive published on PSP last year. So, yeah, avoid.
Next week: The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, Little King’s Story, Moto GP 08, Pikmin 2, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 and Dance Party.
