P*N New This Week: 11th September 2011

Welcome to Platform Nation’s New This Week, where we inform you, the reader, on all of the game releases you should be looking out for.

My pick for this week is:

The Gunstringer:


The Gunstringer is a Kinect title which makes use of the player’s body to control the game rather than a gamepad. It begins with live action footage in a theater where people have attended to see the show. The setting of the play revolves around a character known simply as The Gunstringer, an undead marionette sheriff betrayed by his posse. The game begins as he rises from his grave, bent on revenge. The player controls the character’s movement with their left hand, while the right is used to aim and fire the character’s gun. Certain moments in the game are presented as a rail shooter and allow the player to use both hands to control two guns while the character moves along a pre-defined path. The Gunstringer is set as a play which takes place in the Old West. The game is played as though it were acted out on a theatre stage.

My View: I have seen plenty of coverage of The Gunstringer as the game was originally due to be released on XBLA, but then made it to a full retail game. Twisted Pixel have developed another really amazing game. From everything I’ve seen of the game, the controls look sharp and the gun aiming gameplay looks pretty fun and accurate. If you own a Kinect I would say give this game a purchase.
