Hurray! 2009’s new release doldrums have finally lifted, as this week brings a few capable choices to store shelves. Just don’t look for any of these games at your local Circuit City, who announced they will be closing all of their stores. While we can’t say we always loved the retailer- stores were often messy and employees were less than helpful, they did have an occasional bargain. Farewell, firedogs!
Imagine: Fashion Party
Ultimate Shooting Collection
Big Bang Mini
Wonder World Amusement Park
Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Ar Tonelico 2: Melody Of Metafalica
Commander in Chief
DesertEagle’s Pick: Since First Departure was such a pleasant surprise, I have a sneaking suspicion that Star Ocean: Second Evolution will give my software-starved PSP a much needed reason to rejoice. Skate 2‘s jump (pun intended) to 60 frames per second also has me interested.
TideGear’s Pick: Skating games don’t really interest me. Big Bang Mini looks to scratch my love-for-quirky itch. However, as a shmup fan I’m all over Ultimate Shooting Collection! That’s my pick! I may end up trying Star Ocean: Second Evolution. That’s one RPG series I’ve been meaning to try.
