Games Releases (22 – 26 March 2010)

Public holidays and Cyprus is a match made in heaven. The next three working weeks are going to be short and sweet for many people in Cyprus. The current week is 4 days, the next only 3 and the one after that again 3 (for some). It’s the perfect opportunity to finally find the time to play some of the fantastic games that have been released in the first quarter of 2010.

If you are planning to travel during this period then this week’s releases include some tasty handheld titles. There is N+ (PSP, DS) which is a great platform/puzzle game that was first released on XBLA. For the otaku (or just nerds), there is Infinite Space (DS, Japanese RPG) and of course Pokemon (DS). No better opportunity to catch’em all!

Continuing the otaku theme is Resonance of Fate (360, PS3) which is a strategy RPG for the hardcore crowd. There is also Blaz Blue: Calamity Trigger (360, PS3), a 2D fighting game, which i have read nothing about but is receiving some good review scores.

Last and certainly not least is Just Cause 2 (360, PS3, PC), an open world game where you can complete missions in many different and exciting ways. I have seen some crazy gameplay footage of this game and it looks really, really good. Link 1, Link 2 and Link 3.

Just Cause 2 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.
