I find it difficult to keep up with all the releases and when they happen, since there’s so many different places that you have to go to check. Aside from the big titles, there’s: Steam releases, GoG, XBL, GFWL, PSN, independents and MMOs.
If you know of something releasing within the upcoming week, please post and let us know!
Also, let’s try to keep this on topic and keep the opinions and complaints to each game’s own respective thread(s).
Wait, there’s a lede being buried here… Downloadable PS2 games that run on any PS3, regardless of hardware support? I guess they did do the pure-software emulator after all, though for certain titles only, I guess.
This sort of proves my point. While an excellent site, GB doesn’t post about GoG, or most indies, as well as a slew of other lesser-known titles that is unworthy of GB’s attention. That’s what Qt3 is really good at, announcing the stuff most major sites don’t.
A valid point, Marcin. I think it goes without saying, and with the Bargain Thread as an example, we can never quell the opinionated masses at Qt3 of their views. I’m just hoping we don’t get into a 3 page debate over what DRM a certain new release is going to use, and would like to keep the thread as a fairly clean place to see what’s available to throw our money at each week.
Yeah, it can get out of control. I’ll try to do my part to keep things tight.
Ring of Red; I actually picked this up on the basis of OMG mechs! but it was … just weird. There wasn’t really a fight, it was more of an old school JRPG sideways match (like the early Final Fantasies) where each side just plonks away at each other - except in 3D and you were closing in on each other leading to stronger and more accurate hits until one side fell over. It was entertaining for about 15 minutes. Verdict: skip.
Odin Sphere has a beautiful, distinctive art style and good, if difficult, sidescrolling brawler combat, with a solid layer of RPG looting and crafting. It is way too grindy for my tastes however. It also had crippling slowdown on the PS2 (which made some bosses unbeatable for me), which hopefully has been fixed for the PS3 release.
