New Releases 8/24-8/30: Nineteenth Hole Edition


Wow, is it Christmas in August? Publishers are pelting us with three wonderful RPGs, a first party Nintendo title, a Ferrari sim, and the ability to learn Chinese. Maybe we’ll learn how to say,”I’m happy, but broke” in Mandarin, or at least “be aware of Vampire Rain“.

Pick of the Week: With so many titles hitting store shelves this week, we’ll let system ownership do the math for us. 360 owners who favor RPGs should love Infinite Undiscovery and Tales of Vesperia, while PS3 owners should enjoy the third entry into the delightful Disgaea franchise. Sports fans or Wii owners may want to take a look at Tiger Woods, especially, if they haven’t purchased a game in the franchise for several years. Handheld owners will enjoy the amount of levels platformer N+ has to offer, as well as its $20 price tag.
