This Week’s Games
A lot of people will be doing their Christmas shopping this weekend, so releasing a new game the week before Christmas isnâ€™t an entirely mad thing to do. Only Nintendo and Sony are brave enough to do this though, with just two new releases out this week – Buzz! Quiz World on PSP and Nintendo Presents: Crossword Collection on DS. Theyâ€™re both probably alright, if quizzes and crosswords “float” your “boat”.
If not, then you should get out into town and try to bag yourself a bargain – Game and GameStation have pre-owned stuff for as little as 98p (I picked up NASCAR 08 on PlayStation 3 for a friend) while Blockbusters, PC World and Currys.digital have started their sales too. If you canâ€™t stand the crowds – and I donâ€™t blame you, people can be twats at Christmas – then thereâ€™s some good stuff to be had online such as Brutal Legend at Play.com for Â£17.99 while Zavvi has Borderlands and Operation Flashpoint 2 for Â£17.95 a pop.
Next week: Nothing, because itâ€™s Christmas Day, but 8th January sees Bayonetta, the apparently very Zelda-like Darksiders and Winter Games 2010 hitting shelves.
