A bit of a quiet week on the game releases front, apart from one of the most anticipated games of this year, Final Fantasy XIII. I probably don’t have to explain what type of game this is. Having been in development for years, it is finally getting released. If you are into your JRPG’s, this is a must own.
All you Warhammer fans will be rejoicing to hear that the new Dawn of War 2 expansion, Chaos Rising is arriving. The expansion offers new campaign missions in both single player and multiplayer, a raise in level cap (from 20 to 30) and new weapons.
If you are not into clicking away on a keyboard, Yakuza 3 is also arriving this week. The PS3 exclusive is the latest installment in the action-adventures series that is Yakuza. The game is set in a fictional version of Tokyo’s red light district. The game also boasts real life landmarks within the game. If you are undecided, you could always grab the demo from the PSN store.
If you are not keen on keyboard and mouse or PS3, don’t worry. The multi platform game, Ben Ten: Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks is hitting shelves this week. Available on Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, DS and PSP, you play Ben traveling back in time to help save the earth from Vilgax and his gigantic Null Void Projector.
A Wii exclusive concludes this weeks games of interest. Dancing on Ice is a game based on the popular TV show of the same name. The game involves you training and being judged by the panel. With the Wii control scheme its hard to see if you will be immersed within the game but having not played it yet, I will reserve judgment. If you are a fan of the show, this may be the game for you.
