New Releases 1/25-1/31: Immortal and Immoral Edition

So when did the PS2 take a sip from the Holy Grail? Support for Sony’s second home console appears eternal as the beloved system gets twice as many new releases titles as the Nintendo Wii. Sure it’s a lowly 2-1 ratio, but a small miracle in 2009. Battle on, you 64-bit, warrior!

DesertEagle’s Pick: While anime to game transitions often turn out awkward, I have heard many good things about Afro Samuari. From Samuel L. Jackson’s voice-over f-bombs, to the game’s stylish presentation, the title should be worth a look to fans of the series.

TideGear’s Pick: I agree with DE’s take on how anime to game transitions tend to go. Hopefully, Afro Samurai will be well done. I just wonder if I should check out the anime and/or manga first? Anyway, believe it or not, my pick for this week is The Chase: Felix Meets Felicity! While on first glance it appears to be some shovelware title directed at kids, it actually looks to be a quirky, frantic and fun platformer. Here’s hoping!
