This Week’s Games
What a funny old week this one is. The biggest new game out, a term which Iâ€™m using loosely, is motorbike sim SBK X on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Blackbean have been knocking these out on a yearly basis so they should be pretty good at it by now.
On DS thereâ€™s the adventure game Rooms: The Main Building, published by Nintendo themselves. The Official Nintendo Magazine said itâ€™s fun but limited. Then thereâ€™s something called Dark Star One: Broken Alliance on Xbox 360, which if the Amazon product page is to go by, bares more than a resemblance to Mass Effect.
Also, and to assist the failing PSP, Sony has decided to re-release 20 PSP titles at a cheaper price under a new PSP Essentials brand. The first wave is out this week, all of which are Sonyâ€™s own offerings like Patapon 2, LocoRoco and Wipeout Pulse. The next wave appears to be third-party titles such as Harry Potter, Naruto, Ben 10 and The Sims 2. You can read more about them here
Next week: Super Mario Galaxy 2, Beat City, Green Day: Rock Band, Nancy Drew: The Model Mysteries, Naval Assault: The Killing Tide and Great Party Games.
