The Latest

New Releases for the Week of July 31st, 2011


Sure, Splash Damage missed their projected date of ‘early July’ for the release of Agents of Change, Brink‘s first downloadable content package. Although the developer is a bit late on delivery, they are still holding true on their free promise, allowing the content to be obtained without cost until August 16th. While the original game didn’t completely floor us, the one-two combo of a reduced price and new environments might send us back to the ark.

DesertEagle’s Pick: To the casual observer, Bleach: Soul Resurrección looks like a cookie-cutter Dynasty Warriors clone. Yet, get some stick-time with the game and you’ll find that the speed of combat and weapon variety make for a solid Hollow-hunting recreation of the manga/anime/films.

BlueSwim’s Pick: When I first saw the trailer Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet during E3 week, it failed to impress me. I thought it would end up being forgettable, dull, and boring. At the urging of some fine folks from Twitter, I gave it a second look. While something is lost in just watching gameplay videos, I think I can see the potential magic of the game. I’m looking forward to going hands-on with it.

Samurage’s Pick: I guess if I were to pick something up this week, it would be Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet. I’m a bit leery about the controls; using a 360 controller to maneuver a UFO seems like it could be dicey, but graphically, it looks to be a game right up my alley.  Of course, I may be too preoccupied with Catherine to do much else this week.

  1. I’d be surprised if anyone is still playing Brink. Did they ever patch the game to fix some of the problems?

  2. I heard the final boss of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is insanely cheap.

  3. Go Fetch! got a sequel? How the hell did I miss the first game?

  4. Electric Relaxation

    Are these new version of Limbo the same game that I played last year, or have the added anything new to them?

  5. no worse that Play & Learn Spanish. Serious how do you play with a ‘learn a foreign language’ game?

  6. was there or is there going to be a Bleach demo?

  7. Side note- My Redbox was Call of Juarez for the PS3 and Wii. (yeah, I didn’t know there was a Wii version) but no 360 version. Anyone elese notice that?

  8. No Phineas and Ferb for 360? I love the show!

  9. Maybe Bleach.

  10. I don’t think I’ll be buying anything this week.

  11. I still have my copy of Brink. Tine to dust it off.

  12. Slow week. At least I’ll be saving my money.

  13. No one is getting Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet? That’s kind of strange for summer of arcade title.

  14. So who has Brink for cheap? Also, I heard the PS3 version actually better than the 360 one.

    Give me info, people!

  15. Sage talks like such a PC elitist, I love it!

  16. Phineas and Ferb is a great show. I wonder if the game will be good.

  17. I’ll be playing Catherine this week.

  18. OK, I’ll give Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet a try.

  19. I have Bleach preordered.

  20. Not much to pick from this week.

  21. I’ll pick up Bleach if it’s any good.

  22. So when is TG making their own iPhone app.

  23. I have Bleach preordered…….

  24. Are any of you guys picking up Mario picture? I always liked that one.

  25. Ever get a feeling Shipwreck from Cheapassgamers reads your reviews. On the last show he said things that sounded right out of your Catherine and Oac-man and Galaga reviews. Could be a coincidence I guess.,,

  26. Both Deagle and I still talk to SeanNOLA. Sean and I have been pals since college.
