Welcome to Platform Nation’s weekly feature where we inform you, the reader, on all the game releases you should be looking out for.
Each week as well as bringing you news about which games are due to hit the shelves in the seven days ahead, the Platform Nation writer will choose their pick of the week.
My pick for this week is:
Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, the game that fills in the gaps between the original zombie action game and the sequel, hits the Xbox 360 exclusively on Aug. 31. The downloadable game will cost 400 Microsoft Points and introduces players to Dead Rising 2’s hero Chuck Greene.
My View: Looks pretty awesome. Although I don’t really think this game is needed as dead rising 2 comes out only a couple of months after this, but then again killing zombies for a couple of months for only 400 Microsoft points sounds quite fun!
The full rundown. As well as my pick of the week the following games are due for release:
X360: TNT Racers, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition
XBLA: Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
PS3: TNT Racers, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition
PSN: Castle Crashers, Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep
Wii: TNT Racers, Metroid: Other M, Guilty Party
PSP: Valkyria Chronicles II, Ace Combat: Joint Assault
DS: Cosmos X2
PC: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep
Mac: Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse Episode 5: The City That Dares Not Sleep
