What Am I Playing This Week? Vol 5
It’s another week so that mean it’s another installment of WAIPTW?
I’m still playing through Mother 3, and I’m very close to the end. I’m considering if I should do a review on it, but not sure if I will. For one it came out in 2006, but on the other hand it’s a game that hasn’t been released in North America. I have some other games to review coming up, so if I have a slow week I may end up doing one.
For this week the new game on the block is Shank. Shank is a downloadable title for PSN and XBLA. It’s a side scrolling beat em’ up that plays a lot like a 2D version of Devil May Cry, with a bit of Prince of Persia platforming thrown in. I’ve only played a little bit of it, but so far I’m really liking it.
I’ve gotta say August has been a really good month for beat em’ ups. Scott Pilgrim game out a few weeks ago, Shank this week and than PS3 finally gets Castle Crashers next week.
And speaking of Scott Pilgrim I saw the movie last week. I plan on doing a review for it but I’ve been having a lot of trouble just sitting down and getting it started. But if I could describe it in one word it would be disappointing. I hope I can muster up some sort of work ethic and have a multi worded review up sometime this week.
That is all.
