Releases for the Week (February 5th-12th)


Things are definitely picking up this week as we’re getting 3 full retail releases, 4 PSN releases, 4 retail games making their way to PSN and THE PS2 classic we’ve all been waiting for: The SpongeBob SquarePants: Movie is finally here! This will probably be the last time we talk about PSN and PSN releases since Sony has decided to change things around a bit, and is re-branding the service as… SEN.

This week you can pick between the retail edition of the Jak and Daxter HD Collection, the digital edition (at the exact same price) OR you can pick each of the games by themselves should you not have enough money on your wallet (either physical or digital one), or if you just hate one of the 3 games (my bet is on you hating on J&K 2).

    but…. i just started playing GCI. I never got to enjoy the beta!

    if those digital releases were actually cheaper than buying in stores I would totally be into it. They all need to be $20 flat off the bat. I’d buy Catherine on sheer principle but a) i think that game might be more overhyped than Uncharted from what I’ve seen and b) i doubt it’ll be less than $30.

    @wolfkin: Catherine is fun. Did you try the demo? It’s currently $40 at our Amazon store which is a great price. I paid $60 at launch and pre-ordered for the extra artbook/soundtrack.

    overhyped not meaning bad.. just too much hype. I played the demo.. didn’t really get anything from it except the inkling that maybe the demo was just too short to really showcase what the game is about. I’ve watched a guy in Anime club play it for a bit and I can see where there is more to the game but I honestly don’t see it meeting the absurd amount of hype it had gotten.

    Who knows maybe when I play it i’ll like it more. Uncharted became much more fun when after i was playing for an hour I stopped expecting the hype. At that point it became just really good fun.

    Well, the demo only really showcased the “climbing” section of the game, and not the story and the interaction with the other characters. Hopefully you’ll give the game a chance.

    all 3 new releases are great! though i would opt for The darkness II after such a demo

    I agree Kane, Its a good week! The Darkness II, regardless of the mixed reviews, is on my list. Along with Shank 2, and I might pick up Catherine, depending on the price tag.

    @Cheeto: Catherine better be $40 since releasing it at $60 would not make much sense.

    @EdEN; it better be $30, lets lower our expectations a bet shall we? lol

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning! I’ll have to wait ’till the 29th since it’s the release date around here though :/

    Anyone played Gotham City Impostors? I didn’t know that game was coming out already.
