Welcome to PlatformNation.com’s weekly feature which tell you the games that you need to care about coming out in the next week.
This week, there are two major releases:
Heavy Rain and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing
Heavy Rain (PS3): Heavy Rain is an upcoming video game from French studio Quantic Dream and is exclusive to the PS3. It brings a whole new genre to the table with the game sporting an interactive movie persona sporting a free storyline that adapts to the choices of the player while searching for the Origami Killer.
My View: This game looks absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get my copy this Friday. Being able to make choices and those choices could be the difference between life and death for your character, and once they are dead. They ain’t coming back to life.
US: PS3 – Feb 23.
UK: PS3 – Feb 26.
AU: PS3 – Feb 25.
JP: PS3 – Feb 18.
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (360, DS, Wii, PS3): Although most people this week don’t care about this game, to some people, like families, this game is something they can put in and have a fun time with. Join Sonic, Amigo, AiAi, and a lots more classic Sega characters in this kart-style racing game!
My View: I won’t be playing this game. In my eyes it’s just another kart racing game, but this time with Sonic. Who really doesn’t need a kart because he can run pretty fast.
US: PS3, 360, DS, Wii – Feb 23.
UK: PS3, 360, DS, Wii – Feb 10.
