New PAL Releases Roundup
Get drunk instead.
What with all the excitement of scheduling and rescheduling E3 appointments for next week (it's as much fun as it sounds), we almost forgot about new game releases this Friday! Not that we're alone in that, because it looks like the entire games industry forgot.
So far as we can see, the most exciting prospect is Capcom's PC port of Devil May Cry 4, which we'll be reviewing shortly after E3 when people start paying attention again. On the back of the box it promises "Custom Settings push your PC's HD graphics to the max!" though, so watch out. It's also got new "Legendary Dark Knight" and "Turbo" modes. Good old Capcom.
That's basically it, apart from Sports Party - the first game on Ubisoft's "Play Zone" label for "all family members and friends". It has basketball, croquet, lawn darts, badminton, volleyball, horse shoes and mini-golf with gesture controls and those bored of Wii Sports presumably in its sights.
Then there are some handheld games, including the disappointing Secret Agent Clank and Doodle Hex, which may or may not be good according to various print reviews. We'll make sure to take a look in an upcoming DS Roundup, and if it's got any sexy spokesladies like Crosswords for Thickos yesterday then we'll be sure to use photos of them to illustrate it in a pathetic attempt to...I don't know actually - lock down the misogyny demographic?
Oh, and since we'll probably forget to do this roundup next week what with our being on an aeroplane around then, the big game 18th July game will be Guitar Hero: On Tour.
