New Releases 6/13-6/19: Infinity and Beyond Edition

With nary a Mature-rated game in sight, the bulk of this week’s new releases are clearly aiming for a younger demographic. Even the menacing-monikered Naval Assault: The Killing Tide, appears to skip the salty language and close-quarters combat for some trigonometry- guided torpedoes. Hopefully, the title will illustrate that sending Nazi U-boats to a watery grave can be just an informative as one of those bland edutainment titles which parent are often suckers for.

DesertEagle’s Pick: While I’m really interested in how the developers of Yard Sale Hidden Treasures have transformed sifting through piles of junk into a compelling game mechanic, I’m going to have to give the nod to far more pedestrian title. XG Blast doesn’t do much more than present waves of enemies that need to be blasted into space dust, but it doesn’t scratch that Geometry Wars itch on the go. For DS owners who haven’t picked up the proficient port of GW: Galaxies is $20 well spent.

SeanNOLA’s Pick: Seriously, people?  Did you really expect another outstanding week after The Maypocalypse?  If you are really dying to spend your money, and you have already purchased all of the amazing games that hit last month,why not give that money that’s burning a hole in your pocket to charity?  Or me?


TideGear’s Pick: Even though I always have games back-logged, I’m not going to cop out like certain NOLAs beginning with “Sean”. I will pick anyway! I’m not sure if Naval Assault: The Killing Tide is meant as some kind of not-so-veiled threat towards me, but I’m still interested. (Though, I supposed it’d have to be “The Killing of Tide”.) I love submarines, but most simulations are so complex, I can’t even want to put in the time. I hope this is a bit more Ace Combat-like. I’m not going to try to hide it, I’m also pretty interested in the PC version of Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers.

    Are you guys sponsored by Disney or what?

    Toy Story 3 as your graphics? Cmon!

  2. I guess they figure everyone who isn’t a kid will be following E3…

  3. I need to play some games to get the sound of Vuvuzela out of my head.

  4. Amazingly bad you mean NOLA? Pretty funny little Easter Egg!

  5. Where’s Karnov’s picks?

  6. Desert, you’re going to review Dance On Broadway, right? GOTY contender right there.

  7. My pick is Naval Assault: The Killing TideGear because he cant post his pick.

    By killing him, I mean in a game of course, no real violence!

  8. Tipsy Grenadier

    Nothing for me. Terrible week!

  9. Toy Story 3: The Video Game is rated M because they show a Woody in the game 😉

    Sorry, bad to.

  10. You made up that Yard Sale game. C’mon!

  11. All the of the amazing games is just Deagle giving out good scores like he always does.

  12. I can’t remember this bad a week in a long time. NOLA’s right. Pay it forward.

  13. I don’t see a good game hidden through all the junk. Never heard of XG Blast. but it sounds kind of generic.

  14. Legend of Kay…The old PS2 game that came ou like 5 years ago?

  15. Rocks on the Scotch

    Some of this week’s game almost seems like bad jokes- Pro Cycling Manager – Tour de France 2010?

  16. Mystic Defender

    Man, this is a goofy week.

  17. So much hate this week. Just skip this nonsense and soak in all the new E3 titles that are yet to be announced.

  18. I might have to get Magic: The Gathering-Duels of the Planeswalkers

  19. Maybe he’s getting Rocking Android’s show together for E3. Give him a break.

  20. Enjoy kiddies. I’ll be catching up with my backlog.

  21. Juneolocaust anyone?

  22. I guess the good news is that there’s a PSP release, right?

  23. I hope you review Naval Assault: The Killing Tide. Maybe Dessert.

  24. Drunk Tiger Woods

    Naval Assault: The Killing Tide maybe.

  25. Is Toy Story 3: The Video Game supposed to be any good?

  26. World of Porncraft

    I loved “AMAZING” LOL.

  27. a weak week if you ask me.

  28. I haven’t heard much ‘salty’ language on the podcast lately.

  29. I’ll be honest with you, I have high hopes for Disney Interactive. They’ve come a long way since Warren Spectre took the helm a few years ago.

  30. HAHA, LOLed @ this!

  31. It’s a game coming out this week. Get over it.

  32. Sorry Nola can’t follow your advice- yard sales await.

  33. No pick from Adam?

  34. Nothing of interest for me.

  35. So are you going to review the game?

  36. Actually, I’ve heard some really good things about the game.

  37. Nothing for me.

  38. Are all you at E3?

  39. Might get Toy Story 3

  40. Pretty bad week for gaming. Maybe next week will be better.

  41. No one would threaten Tide, he’s the lovable one.

  42. Man, Karnov bring the NOLA trash talk! LOL.

  43. I’m ready for a Podcast Assault: The Killing of my Braincells by straight-up awesomeness.

  44. Seconded!

  45. Me three!

    No pickups for me this week.

  46. I might have to take a shot at killing tide!

  47. How about some E3 picks guys.

  48. Yeah sone E3 news from you guys would be awesome! Get to it!

  49. Sexual Chocolate

    Nothing for me this week.

  50. You might want to indicate that yard sale is a DSi title.

  51. A podcast would be nice.

  52. We’re going to do a special post-e3 show tonight, and I’m going to try to make sure it gets posted this weekend. Sorry we didn’t get a during-the-show-cast up, but we were swamped with appointments – don’t worry though, we have TONS to talk about.

  53. I’m looking forward to it.

  54. What’s your game of the show, at least?

    Who had the best press conference?

  55. All of the press conferences were pretty “meh” this year. I suppose Nintendo “won” by virtue of the fact that it wasn’t quite as boring as Sony or Microsoft’s.
    As for game of the show, I’m not sure that there was a clear winner, but I was really surprised by a lot of Sega and Capcom’s showings. I didn’t get my hands on Dark Heresy, but that was pretty much a 3 minute long video of pure Sean-love, so I’m pretty excited about that as well.
    Still trying to process it all, but we’ll talk about everything on the show.

  56. Get on it, ya slackers. What did you par-tay too much?

  57. Ok, how about Deagle and Tide???
