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:
Halo: Reach: Follows the story of Noble Team, a squad of heroic Spartan soldiers as they make their final stand on planet Reach, humanity’s last line of defence between the terrifying Covenant and Earth. Released on the 14th September it is due to be Bungie’s final Halo game.
My View: I thought long and hard about choosing another release as my pick for this week just to be controversial but even I couldn’t resist the hype surrounding this game. This is the title that Microsoft has singled out as their big release for 2010 and early impressions that have started to appear online suggest that Halo Reach actually delivers. For many Xbox360 gamers, it’s not a matter of whether you will pick this game up or not, it’s purely a question of which edition you’ll buy. For me, I’m wondering if I can complete Halo, Halo2, Halo3, ODST in the next 24 hours so that I can appreciate Reach for everything that it is.
The full rundown. As well as my pick of the week the following games are due for release:
Xbox 360: Halo: Reach, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Truth or Lies, Cabela’s North American Adventures, Space Invaders: Infinity Gene, Sonic Adventure,
