Another busy week for game releases with some top quality games coming out. One of the major titles of the year, God of War 3, sees Kratos returning for some more insane skull crushing fun. This is one of the most eagerly awaited PS3 exclusives to be released and will end the trilogy of god of war games. If you want to catch up on the story, don’t forget that one can get the first two with updated graphics and trophy support (although currently it is import only I’m afraid).
A game which I have become very interested in, Metro 2033, is also seeing its release this week. I have a feeling that this will be a surprise hit and reminds me a lot of dead space in that respect. It is a very atmospheric game set in a desolate wasteland a la Fallout 3. With generally favorable reviews coming in (90 from xbox world 360) it’s definitely worth a look.
For all you racing fans out there, you will be looking forward to MotoGP 09/10 release this week. With not many bike sims out there, it is needed with the consoles being dominated with so many car sims. The game will feature teams and tracks for the 2010 season as a free downloadable pack shortly after its release. The game also lets you race with up to 20 people online, an arcade mode and online leaderboards.
If you PC fans are becoming restless and have started wandering to the dodgy corners of the internet, why not keep yourself busy with the new Command & Conquer game! Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight will be hitting shelves this week (or more appropriately occupying space on your hard drive).
A new expansion for Dragon Age: Origins is arriving this week. Titled “Awakening” it allows you to import your character from the main game or start from scratch. “The expansion will include new content, more storyline, five new recruitable party members and Oghren a character from Dragon Age: Origins, new spells and abilities, a raise in level cap, and new items”
To finish things off, we have an interesting Wii game coming out. Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is a RPG that focuses heavily on drama throughout the game. What is most notable about the game is the soundtrack and beautiful artwork which accompanies the gameplay. Only a couple of reviews so far but it is a title to keep your eye on.
As always, take a look at the video below and have your say in the comment section.
