Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

So, yeah, this week has quite a few good games coming out. Where do we start?

How about the biggest game of the week, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed? I've played the demo on PS3 and it's pretty damned good. Not $60 good, but a good pickup at $30 or $20. However, if you're a Star Wars fan, you might want to get it right away because it seems like the first great Star Wars game since Battlefront II. In case you don't already know, Force Unleashed is kind of like a God of War or Devil May Cry game set in the Star Wars world. But what makes this game so awesome is that you can play around with the force. For example, grab a Stormtrooper and throw him into other enemies or grab a TIE Fighter and throw it at enemies. There's so much you can do in this game due to the fact that it is running THREE physics engines on the PS3/360 versions. But don't you Wii owners feel left out, you'll get the opportunity of using waggle to throw things. I haven't researched the other versions as much, but I bet they'll be good.

Rock Band 2 comes out this week ONLY FOR XBOX 360. Harmonix has load of cash from Microsoft a contract with Microsoft to have Rock Band 2 on the 360 one month before the other systems. The thing is that the only way you can get the game at the minute is without any of the instruments. The bundle will arrive next month along with the release of Rock Band 2 on the other systems. So, I'll save talking about it until then. However I will say that if you buy RB2 and you already have the first one, you can transfer over all the songs from the frist game for only $5...and any songs you purchased on the first game will work with the new game free of charge. Nice job Harmonix!

Square Enix whores will be happy to know that yet another handheld port of one of their old games is coming out this week. That game is Dragon Quest IV for the DS. Since I don't like Square Enix besides the fact that they published Space Invaders Extreme and Einhander, I won't comment on how good this game is because I obviously hate it. Smiley

Also out this week is Pure, Disney's surprisingly fun arcadey ATV racer; Crysis Warhead, the sequel to the biggest PC game no one bought because they're all cheapskates that would rather pirate games instead of putting food on the developer's tables; S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, a neat looking FPS; Warhammer Online, yet another MMO; and Line Rider 2, a new version of the popular web game.

In case you did not notice there, I started listing PC games. You're very welcome. Let me know what you think of the new format in the comments.

Well I can't wait for DQ IV Cheesy
Also, DQ IV is a re-make, not a porn Wink
*port >_>

It's not a porn either
@Rajaat the Warbringer: LMAO
@Rajaat the Warbringer:

What? When did Mystique decide to come back? HOW DID I MISS THIS?
@Tondog: Very nice work with the PC games list Smiley They fit nicely under the PSP games huh Wink

A very nice week this is indeed. I hope the Namco Classic Fighter Collection will see a release in Europe. You know, I haven't bought Crysis but a couple of months ago when it was still relatively new (like two months old) I was surprised to find it at 17. A shame no one bought it.

Pfft, is Square Enix really going to re-release all their old games on the DS/PSP or make spin-offs of their best selling franchises (Crisis Core)
Seriously, I think they find developing for new platforms too expensive to focus solely on those. When is Dragon Quest 9 going to get released?

I had to laugh when I saw Line Rider in there. I played the original for half an hour but thought it was pretty lame.
And why give us DQ IV? I'm hoping we see V and VI. Much more interested in games we didn't get, than remakes of ones that we did.
@Rajaat the Warbringer: They have confirmed that they will release V and VI in North America.
Awesome, thanks for the heads up! :-D
Nothing about Armored Core? For shame, Tony.
@Rajaat the Warbringer:
As Jc said 5 and 6 are on their way. And of course DQ 9 will be exclusive to the DS as well. Not sure if it still as a real time battle system though.
