New Release Rundown Week of 2/7

on February 9, 2010 2:36 AM

Well hello readers and welcome to another New Release Rundown brought to you by the most handsome man on staff. This week is another BIG week for releases with Bioshock 2 and Dante’s Inferno both releasing. Take a trip back to the fascinating setting that is Rapture in Bioshock 2, I’m sure there is something important that you have to do, but I’m not going to talk out my ass about this sooooo mooooving on. Dante’s Inferno is an action adventure game that is loosely based off the Divine Comedy (not like haha funny comedy). This week will show us if this game has legs or if it will be written off as a God of War clone. The year of the RPGs onslaught continues this week with the PS3 release of Star Ocean: The Last Hope – International which includes the Japanese voice tracks as well, so all those purists out there can play this game with the Japanese voices.

Now for my favorite part of the week, which is the great named games which are probably horrible. The Wii and DS both are getting The Daring Game For Girls, which sounds like the kind of game that should have a tracking device in case a full grown man were to buy it. How awesome would that be if NBC restarted To Catch A Predator, and they just hit the houses of men that bought this game. Are you a drunk? Did your significant other leave you? Well, worry no more, because Pet Pals is going to help you get a new Leash on Life. How amazingly clever. Well, I’m going to leave you to read the list and buy some new games while I sit here laughing about that Leash on Life joke!
