January 2010 Games Roundup
Posted by DukeSkath on Saturday, 9th January, 2010
Don’t let the byline fool you â€” this overview of the month’s upcoming games was written by Chinny. Duke just did a little formatting and stuff.
Bayonetta (360, PS3)
Also know as the Sarah Palin adventures, this Hack n Slash seems be stirring quite a buzz amongst the critiquing circles. Seems like it’s shaping up quite nicely (I could insert the comment “like her arse” but I’m better than that)
Darksiders (360, PS3)
Don’t you hate it when you accidently start the end of the world a day early? This action/puzzle games is sure to appeal to the Zelda fans out there, not sure about the rest of the demographic though.
Army of Two: The 40th Day (360, PS3, PSP)
With EA assuring us that the bro-mance is nothing more than plutonic, Army of Two: The 40th day is all about guns, violence and being a man, Woooo! And so on.
Vancouver 2010 (360, PS3)
If you felt the same way I did when you read this then you properly said “Van what?” Another Olympics game, another reason to make your wrist tired and another reason to make a masturbation joke.
Dark Void (360, PS3)
From the creators of Crimson Skies comes Dark Void, A young dashing protagonist, (who is totally not Nathan Drake) wonders into another world, where he’ll have to use flight, gun combat and a jetpack to get out. Jetpack FTW!
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (PSP, PS2)
A reimagining of the first Silent Hill, this game takes the survival horror genre over to the Wii, making good use of the platform with unique gameplay elements. Hopefully it will sell, but the survey says… properly not.
Massive. Action. Game. Supporting 256 playing at once, MAG aims to bring FPS MMO COOP SWAT RTS POO (Last one was made up) to the PS3.
Mass Effect 2 (360, PC)
Bioware’s latest Sci-FI Adventure continues, however it seems this is going to be Shepard’s last, I mean biggest challenge yet.
No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii)
Though the first one already told us that there are ‘No More Heroes’ It’s back again just in case we didn’t get it the first time round. This sandbox, action game could be one of the biggest gems on the Wii this year.
