New Releases for the Week of August 7th, 2011


Whether your target is a insurgent general spearheading a coup in a banana republic or an actual, potassium-filled banana, this week’s new releases should serve up a tidy plate of foes. Although releases for Sony’s platforms seem to spare, the company is poised to to remedy this situation, with the announcement of PSN Play.

DesertEagle’s Pick: So far, the Kinect has proved to be a frustratingly unresponsive piece of hardware, requiring repositioning and recalibration with almost any title which looks at my whole body. As Child of Eden has shown, the unit can track arms capably, lending hope that Fruit Ninja Kinect will offer a workout exhausting enough to wash away any pent-up frustrations created by the peripheral.

BlueSwim’s Pick: Upon looking at this week’s releases, I believe that the pick of the week is whatever you were playing last week. For me, that’s Super Godzilla on the SNES (which you’ll be hearing more about soon enough). Unless Nintendo amazes with its 3DS Virtual Console release(s), save your cash for next week.

  2. Dishonest Mistake

    Crap week. Next!

  3. Ironhide, what you think of this week’s releases?
