Mass Effect 2 finally makes it across to the PS3 this week and the buzz for it is huge. It will be interesting to see how well it takes off. Check out the Platform Nation reviews of the Xbox360 version to get an idea of what to expect. (full review) (in so many words)

Plants Vs Zombies – 18/01/11 : P*N Writers Pick of the Week

After taking XBLA by storm Popcap are ready to unleash zombie mayhem on a larger audience.

This may be surprising to some people but I couldn’t let PvsZ pass by without advising you to go out and buy it. We all know Little Big Planet 2 will be successful but if you have the extra cash then pick this gem up so Popcap can continue publishing excellent titles. Check out the P*N review of the XBLA release here.

Multi Format (PS3, X360)

Mindjack  – 18/01/11 :

I don’t know much about this title but the idea of being able to “hack” into various objects and people is an interesting one. For some tasty screenshots and a trailer, jump over to the news brought to us by Steve519 earlier this week

All of these titles are available through the Platform Nation Amazon Storefront.

  • not much to pick from this week. Mindjack is one I will keep an eye on with a view to picking it up as a bargain later in the year.

    The Little Big Planet series has always struck me as a tech demo and I dont have the time to trawl through millions of user created leavels. I’ll pass.
