New Releases 2/1-2/7: Highway to Bullet Hell Edition

With the exception of a Burnout Paradise PC port, and an downloadable arcade style hockey game, this week belongs to Nintendo. Wii owners can pick from three titles that feature neither forsaken ‘animalz’ nor a brazen attempt at edutainment. While the same can’t be said of this week’s DS line-up, at least owners of Nintendo’s portable can find solace in the quirky Atlus RPG My World, My Way.

Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box

DesertEagle’s Pick: As a shmup fan, I feel compelled to purchase Ultimate Shooting Collection. Sure, my aging reflexes are no match for today’s bullet hell symphonies, but an occasional dose of 2D humiliation is required in this field. While Tenchu hasn’t aged as well, with post-PS1 sequels showing little improvement in presentation and AI, I am hopeful for a meritorious return by the stealthy ninja. Perhaps, Ubisoft will add a bit of Sam Fischer finesse to the proceedings.

TideGear’s Pick: There’s some really promising titles coming out this week! I, too, am hopeful for Tenchu: Shadow Assassins but one must have the caution of a ninja. With the PC version of Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, I’m finally going to hop on the hurdling slow-motion wreckage bandwagon. Ultimate Shooting Collection looks like a generous onslaught of shmup-goodness, so I’m there! My World, My Way may sound like some generic Imagine title but it actually looks like an RPG I can get behind. Lastly, Rygar: The Battle of Argus looks intriguing but I’m not yet convinced the game received the upgrade it needed.

  1. Wow, some decent Wii games for a change!

  2. How old are you, Desert?

    USC for me.

  3. What is My World, My Way? Sounds pretty open ended…

  4. I hope Rygar: The Battle of Argus is good. I liked the PS2 version.

  5. I know know what is meant by bullet hell.

  6. Looks better than I thought. I had heard the Rock was in it.

  7. Saw the Star Trek and Transformers trailers there too. Thanks for the link.

    On back on topic, I’ll probably pick up My World.

  8. Burnout Paradise Ultimate here.

  9. What is Phineeas and Ferb?

  10. Looks just like Transformers. Still I’d lie if I said I wasn’t going to see it opening day.

  11. It’s a 2.5D platformer based on a Disney license. The engine looked pretty smooth; similar to the Spiderman DS games by Vicarious Visions.

  12. Nothing for me this week.

  13. I thought Ultimate Shooting Collection came out last week. Will you guys review it?

  14. Old enough to play Tenchu 1 during grad school. In other words, ancient.

  15. Maybe 3 on 3 hockey, depends on the reviews.

  16. Im waiting for Petz Mustang Ranch, the cathouse sim!

    Raise and lower your pleasure prices! Pay off the local police! Charge premium prices to ride bareback!

  17. is My English Coach for native speakers.

  18. Love the Mustang Ranch sim idea.

  19. What is included? Any bonuses?

  20. No games for me this week 🙁

  21. “but one must have the caution of a ninja”

    TideGear FTW!

  22. Third on this concept. Will Wright Rated AO, please!

  23. My World, My Way, This Week!!!!

  24. How old is TideGear?

    Grad school, huh? That’s why you like to use those big word.

  25. If UFO sends us a copy, you can count on a thorough analysis!

    Despite our full review on their website (http://www.ufointeractivegames.com/news.asp?gc=&nid=62), the last time I spoke to our contact at UFO Interactive, he seemed to not know who we were!

    Hopefully, it was just a temporary oversight.

  26. Tenchu most likely, unless the reviews are poor.

  27. Burnout Paradise, here I come.

  28. I hear Rygar isn’t half bad. At least that’s what the said on the 1down show.

  29. Ultimate Shooting Collection

  30. 3 on 3 hockey will most likely suck. Just put Blades of Steel on Virtual Console.

  31. Weren’t you guys supposed to review Afro Samurai?!?!

  32. You guys like AC-DC or something?

  33. That was pretty damn funny.

  34. What are ‘Imagine’ titles?

  35. Saving my cash for SFIV.

  36. Rygar maybe. What’s the price on this one?

  37. They will be.

  38. Electric Assassin

    Those ‘baby’ games.

  39. Seconded

  40. Custom ателье Commandor принимает заказы на создание трайков.

    Срок изготовления трайка 3-4 месяца, цена от 25 000$.

    P.S. Что такое трайк? Чаще всего определение сводится к словам «трехколесный мотоцикл».
    Трайк – это трехколесное создание, с двумя задними ведущими колесами и одним передним колесом,
    управляемым рулем мотоциклетного типа. Все остальное – на усмотрение конструктора …
