Game Releases (8-12 June 2009)

blueberry-gardenThe post-E3 phenomenon.

After watching all those trailers and new controller demonstrations we are back to the present which is not as sweet. We would all like to get Splinter Cell: Conviction or Uncharted 2 but we will have to make do with the likes of Prototype (360, PC) and Grand Slam Tennis (Wii) instead.

Here’s the Protorype (another open world game in the mould of Crackdown and InFamous) review on Eurogamer.

“Prototype is a game of riotous, gore-splattering ultraviolence. That’s all it wants to be, and in many respects it does a solid, and often spectacular job. The victims may be plot, atmosphere and the difficulty curve, but then great power always comes at a cost.”

But Prototype is not the game of the week.

The honours go to the PC indie game that goes by the name of Blueberry Garden. An award winning game that one can get through Steam and there is also a demo to try out. But for US$5 do yourself a favour and just get the damn thing. What’s 2 pints of KEO less this weekend. It will be good for your diet. The game was developed by Erik Svedang and here’s a link to the official site. Link

A short review at Greenpixels will explain to you what this game is all about and this is a short trailer of the game.

The gorgeous Blueberry Garden is game of the week.

Costas

Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life.

Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded, www.forevergamers.com, and on his personal blog, www.lostingames.net.
