News: Video Game Releases

This is where we put out some info about the games we think are going to be somewhere between decent and awesome that release today.  Typically we skip over the heavy hitters.  Sorry Call of Duty, but 8 million people usually already know about your release date.

House of the Dead Overkill Extended Cut – PS3

Buy on Amazon

Developed by Headstrong Games and developed by Sega.  This is the PS3 Move enabled version of the motherfucking awesome Wii game.  We apologize for using the f-bomb in our otherwise clean posts but this game demands it!  If you aren’t familiar, the game is basically a grindhouse flick rail shooter that’s incredibly vulgar and funny.  House of the Dead Overkill Extended Cut releases at $29.99.

 

Dance Central 2 - 360

Buy on Amazon

Developed and published by Harmonix for the 360 Kinect.  Dance Central 2 introduces co-operative play to the mix with a cast of new and old characters.  Pretty much our theory is the first one was ridiculous fun so the second one must be.  Also you can purchase all the tunes from the first game for $5.

 

Cursed Crusade - 360/PS3

Buy on Amazon

Developed by the relatively unknown Kylotonn and published by Atlus (everything that is good).  Cursed Crusade appears to be a violent combo driven co-op Crusade era action beat ‘em up.  While the average gamer may be apprehensive about investing $60 into a new game from an unknown developer, note they won’t have to since it releases at $39.99.

 

Voltron – PSN/XBLA

Developed by THQ and Behaviour Interactive.  Truth be told, we think this game is going to be absolutely terrible but we love giant robits!  The game is up to 5 player co-op and the trailer we linked below has some of the original US cartoon’s Peter Cullen (aka Optimus Prime) narration.  But its only going to cost $10!  That’s like the cost of a bad movie in the theater!  So form the blazing sword, wonder what the heck happened to Lance cause that sure looked like a funeral, and go Voltron force!
