As the flood of holiday game releases start next week now is a good time to tackle this question. Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or a casual one, when is a game finished for you? For each person a game is “finished” in different ways. In ye olde times a game was finished “When I finished the game”, i.e when the story was finished. Between trophies/achievements, challenges, varying difficulties, multiplayer and more this is a reason not many people use today.
Young Thor is one of many “PsP Mini” titles released since the launch of the PsP Go in an attempt to get into the “small game for cheap” market the Iphone created. While many of these games are ports or aren’t worth your time and cash, Young Thor is one of the exceptions as it’s a fun quick hit game that deserves some time and attention.
But why does it deserve your attention? Simply put it’s just plain fun.
The Scott Pilgrim Vs The World movie, based on the 6 part Scott Pilgrim comic series was released last week to theaters, to coincide with that Ubisoft made and released Scott Pilgrim Vs The World: The Game last week as well. I know what you’re thinking, a game based on not just a comic, but the movie the comic was based on? It can’t be good, be gone property based game be gone!!!!!
Thankfully Ubisoft did a good job and while a bit on the small side, Scott Pilgrim is a lot of fun. For those who are unaware of the premise of Scott Pilgrim and have yet to read the comics or see the movie (you should it’s awesome), Scott Pilgrim must fight and defeat Romona Flowers’ 7 evil exs. This in turn, leads to seven different levels to the game, each with little secrets and surprises to discover.
Mass Effect 2, the last RPG from the vets over at Bioware continues the space odyssey of Commander Shepard and his crew. This time around Shepard (after pulling a lazarous) must join up with the human pro group, Cerberus, in order to confront the threat of “The Collectors”.
Story wise the game takes place two years after the ending of the first, it starts with the Normandy being attacked by an unknown ship (revealed to be a collector’s ship) and Commander Shepard is killed saving his crew. From here the story picks up with the leader of Cerberus, The Illusive man talking with a woman about Shepard.
The first Final Fantasy to kick off the last decade, Final Fantasy IX is one of the best in the series, however it is also one of the most under appreciated. Originally released in the year 2000, and now rereleased as a PlaystationOne Classic on the PSN, Final Fantasy IX is well worth the $10 price of admission.
Ever since the original PixelJunk Monsters was released I’ve been an intense love affair with the PixelJunk series. Purchasing every game and their expansions and loving every minute of it, now PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe, a new version of monsters has been released onto the PSP. So is this rerelease worth the cash for veterans and newbies alike?
In a word, Yes!!.
