New Releases: March 3rd - 9th
This week we check out SimCity, Tomb Raider, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, MLB 13: The Show, MLB 2K13, DmC: Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall, The Sims 3: University Life and The Showdown Effect.
the new Tomb Raider might be one of the last games I get for 360. Hopefully it's worth the money, sadly I'm giving up gaming for the remainder of Lent and I'm kinda starting to crack, I kinda want to play Skyrim again but giving it up has motivated me to do other more enjoyable things for the time being.
I find it odd how I already got Tomb Raider. I pre-ordered it (live in Europe) and I got the game on Friday, two days ago. So 5 days before release... lol. It's a good game.
After the SimCity, 4 hour stress test this week, I'm definitely glad I purchased it. I can't justify the lack of offline mode but the online features are great.
I could see Sim City working pretty well with Leap Motion, but wish I could say the same for the Internet... It's a leap forwards then backwards if you ask me.
Ultimate ninja storm is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Kids controls (button mash), its sad when i hear peeps wanting other animes built like ninja storm >.<
Just one question if anyone knows: with the new dlc for DMC, can we use Vergil outisde his story arc? Like in Bloody Palace and maybe do a run of Dante's story with Vergil (like it was in DMC3) ?
It sounds like you're saying "Laura Croft"
It's supposed to be "Lara Croft". Gamers should know that by now.
Showdown Effect was news to me. It looks somewhat interesting.
I hope Vergil will be playable in Bloody Palace (although it's highly unlikely). Still looking forward to his gameplay though.
I'm sad, I want to get SimCity so bad, but the always online requirement is a total deal breaker :'(
I guess I may still get it if it's extraordinary, but knowing how screwy EA servers are upon a games launch, most people won't even be able to play it for the first few days.
Take out Barry Bonds off MLB 13, then bring him in SimCity to be judged in a courthouse.
Doh! Already done!
Im going to enjoy watching green scorpion burn lol..Why the heck people want to see games crash is beyond me..Im hopeful the game will be successful..So it bothers green scorpion..Hopefully many expansion packs will be made for the new simcity so it bothers him more an more..Than im hopeful add ons will be available so it bothers him more an more an more..Muhahahahaha
With Tomb Raider and MLB 13: The Show out I think my PS3 is gonna get a good workout this week.
Might give the ME3 Citadel DLC a go too if I've got the MS points.
Should be a great week all around though.
@SolidSnakeTPFTHQ went bankrupt. its not entirely clear but the release has been pushed back and will possibly be cancelled.
@cip_raziel no. It's only his 6 missions. You can't use him outside of them.
@blamix99 and you believe IGN? lol
@pal_080 In the 4 hour stress test I did earlier this week, I had no issues playing the game. The online features they added make sense. While I can't say that there is a good reason for leaving an offline mode out of the game, the online features are very well done. I can say that the game doesn't use 'online only,' solely as a form of DRM. It has definitely been built from the ground up with community driven 'regions' in mind.
I can't justify the online only but it is worth paying for if you plan on playing it.
@pal_080 Ya same, but I bought anyways. And I'll get a Piratebay version for offline play.
@green_scorpion The 4 hour unlocked beta/stress test earlier this week was awesome. Why do you think it's going to 'crash and burn?' My impression is that the game is going to do very well.
MLB 13 the show, yes.
MLB 2K13, not at all.
