If the past few stormy days have not you left you in any doubt that the autumn is here then the below release list should clear the issue.
The competition is fierce for game of the week. The PC audience welcomes yet another MMO in the form of Aion: The Tower of Eternity by NCoft. NCoft is a South Korean developer behind MMO games like Lineage and Guild Wars which although not anywhere near the popularity of World of Warcraft they have managed to secure a very hardcore and loyal fanbase.
Then we have two Wii titles that may interest you. Rock Band 2 of course needs no introduction and Dead Space: Extraction which is based on the successful game Dead Space released last year on the 360 and PS3.
To complete the round up of all contenders who failed to win game of the week there is PixelJunk Monsters. It’s the PSP version of the PSN game and falls within the tower defense genre. Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box on the DS is the 2nd game in a trilogy of puzzle games. I have played the first game, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, and it was excellent. Even people who never play puzzle games enjoyed this puzzle game. I highly recommend The Professor Layton series to DS owners.
Finally it’s time to go hardcore and be a bit of Halo fanboy. Halo 3: ODST is my game of the week. Another game which expands the Halo universe. It’s the game that i am buying and playing this week.
“Halo is all about these epic, flowing battles and ODST has some of the series’ most jaw-dropping. It may be the shortest Halo game – it takes a little over six hours to finish on Heroic difficulty – but that time is spent in one of the richest and, most surprisingly, varied campaigns so far.”
