Tits and guns

This Week’s Games EA’s The Saboteur features tits and guns and hasn’t sold very well. Sega’s Bayonetta also features tits and guns, but with 10/10 reviews from just about everybody it’s bound to do well in the chart next week. If you haven’t read any reviews yet, it’s a bit like Devil May Cry only …

And the last releases of 2009 are…

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 isn’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 …

Next Stop: Hyrule

This Week’s Games It has been a middling year for DS releases but at least The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks helps it go out with a bang. “Spirit Tracks must be the happiest, most heart-warming Zelda to date,” claims Eurogamer who awarded it a 9. I’ve just had a look at GameRankings to see …

Where’s Papa Na’vi?

This Week’s Games, in 2D There was a time when Pandemic could do no wrong, churning out Full Spectrum Warrior, Destroy All Humans and Mercenaries in quick succession. That was before being taken over by EA, where their output suddenly dropped – their Dark Knight game was canned, Mercenaries 2 wasn’t as good as the …

Formula Fun

This Week’s Games We’re starting to get to the last of the big Christmas releases now. There’s definitely been less games released this winter, but that’s not such a bad thing. Assassin’s Creed 2 certainly isn’t a rushed out sequel, and reviews suggest that it’s a massive improvement over the first one. Left 4 Dead …

Nobody Mention The War

This Week’s Games As well as that game arriving in stores this week another seven other games are also hitting shelves. Obviously they don’t have a hope in hell at getting to the top of the charts, but there’s three that still should do quite well – Cooking Mama 3 on DS, Dragon Ball: Raging …

Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

This Week’s Games It may be cold outside but there’s plenty of hot releases out this week, as that chap who does the voiceovers for in-store adverts might say. I was expecting to recommend Bioware’s Dragon Age: Origins but after reading Eurogamer’s 6/10 review I’m not so sure. GamesRadar liked it a whole lot more …

Overpriced Piece of Plastic Hero

This Week’s Games If you’re wanting DJ Hero then you’re also going to need a healthy bank balance – you’ll struggle to find it for any less than £89.99. The Renegade Edition costs even more – (£139.99) but comes with a stand for the deck controller and mixes by Jay-Z and Eminem. Reviews have been …

Turn 10 score a 10

This Week’s Games Microsoft starts wheeling out their big Christmas games this week, with Forza 3 and Lips: Number One Hits hitting shelves. Forza 3 got a 9 on Eurogamer, even though they said that the difficulty level was a bit bumpy and that the damage modeling looks a bit naff. GamesRadar though seemed to …

M&S – but not that one

This Week’s Games They’re quite the odd couple, but having got together two years ago for a trip to the Olympic Games after years of acrimony, Mario and Sonic are still an item, and now they’re off to the Olympic Winter Games. What I’m trying to say is: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter …

Spend It Like Beckham

This Week’s Games The seemingly brilliant FIFA 10 is out this week, so you can probably guess now what will be #1 in the charts on Monday. The supermarkets are having a price war on this one, with Tesco being the cheapest at £24.97 followed by Asda at £26.71. The DS version isn’t out until …

Spies Like Us

This Week’s Games You can count the amount of spy related games out today on no less than three fingers. There’s the better than expected MySims Agents on Wii and DS, Capcom’s mediocre Spyborgs on Wii and the smashing Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box on DS. Well, Professor Layton is probably more of a detective …

Kirby Sucks

This Week’s Games Xbox 360 owners might be jealous that Katamari Forever is released on PlayStation 3 this week but they really shouldn’t feel green – they’ve already had an exclusive Katamari game in the form of Beautiful Katamari. Game are asking a stupid £44.99 for Katamari Forever but it’s available for a lot less …

All You Need Is Love (And £179.99)

This Week’s Games Batman: Arkham Asylum could be pushed off the top of the chart next week, but it’s hard to say by which game as there are no less than four potential chart-topping titles out this week. The stupidly expensive The Beatles: Rock Band (£179.99, if you haven’t seen it in the shops yet) …
