This Week’s Videogame Releases

After several relatively slow weeks, the ides of May takes the gaming world by storm. Blizzard’s Diablo III leads the way; millions of gamers have been waiting for this one for years and it’s almost here! Also high on many a gamers wish list is Rockstar’s Max Payne 3. With the show’s second season kicking all sorts of ass, Atlus should enjoy brisk sales of Game of Thrones. While I still have problems accepting that the movie actually exists, the companion videogame Battleship has me thinking about the impossibility of Rihanna and Turtle from Entourage joining the Navy. One of the oldest driving-game series makes a return in Test Drive: Ferrari Legends. Lastly, Mario Tennis Open has caused many of my friend to figure out where the hell they put their Nintendo 3DS systems.

Any of you picking up new games this week?

  1. As hard as this is for me to believe, I'm probably not buying anything this week. I'm trying to save up to buy a new guitar (a worn cherry Gibson SG), so I'm going to have to stop throwing $60 at every game I see if I want to buy it sometime this year.

    I canceled my preorder on Max Payne 3 because I came to the conclusion that I wanted to want to buy it for nostalgia's sake more than I actually wanted to buy it because of what was being offered up. I'll still rent it, but it just doesn't look like I'd get $60 worth of entertainment out of the game.

    I could probably be talked into buying Diablo III, but I'm holding off right now because I have such a large pile of RPG's from the last 6 months that I'm already still trying to get through.

    Finally, I remember playing Battleship. I used to own both versions of the game, the regular one (my Mom's house)and the electronic one (my Dad's house). Neither one had aliens in it. I'm really not sure Hollywood needed to buy the "Battleship" license. They really could have just called this movie "Alien Invaders From the Ocean" or "Super Naval Adventure Fun Time" for all I care.

  2. Diablo 3 is installed and awaiting the clock to strike midnight.

    Quite possibly the last game I'll buy this year.

  3. Got Max Payne 3. I like the gameplay for the most part. It feels a lot like the first one. My big gripe of course though is the cut-scenes, but I feel like this time I have a legitimate gripe. For starters the story is boring and slow mostly a lot of Max drinking and talking to himself. Second, the are all jerky and glitchy, but I think they are calling it stylized, Then there are all of the graphics pop ins, everything renders and just appears randomly, Also when you do try to skip scenes it says STILL LOADING at the bottom. 10 minute cut-scene and it says STILL LOADING. WTF people how long does it take to load???? If you want me to watch just don't let me skip, don't lie to me. Lastly there are many parts that should just be cut-scenes because the on;y thing you are able to do is press the joystick in any direction and he stumbles forward and there is no running in the game
