December Releases

It’s the last list of releases for 2009, and as is normal for December, it stinks. This is a good thing. Now maybe we can play catch up. I count two, maybe three titles worth picking up this month (unless one particular title comes out, which will make the list the GREATEST EVER). Not a lot to talk about here, so on to the list:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Dead Rising 2 – So. Amazon is saying that Dead Rising 2 is coming out January 1st. Is this true? I checked some places, and all I could find was a release window of “Q1 2010” which technically means it could come out January 1st. But certainly that is wishful thinking. VERY wishful thinking.

Puzzler World
The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks – Probably the biggest release this month. I love that they went back to the Wind Waker cel-shaded look. I’m definitely looking forward to this one, even if I don’t pick it up on day one.

Dragonmaster
Playmobil: Pirates – So, it looks like Playmobil is the next LEGO? Does that mean we can look forward to more? Because that would be the opposite of awesome.

Week of December 29th
Gauntlet (Nintendo DS) – Here it is, the missing title that completes the Nintendo DS game library. I can’t believe we’ve waited this long.

  1. Yes!

    Not sure when I’ll be picking them up but, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is definitely an awesome game in the making. Number one on that list for me.

    Might and Magic looks pretty cool too.

    Can’t forget Gauntlet. 😉

  2. Oh god in heaven… Picross 3D? Save me from myself!

    That said, I’m not really looking to buy any games this month. I’ll get Spirit Tracks at some point. I’d like to try Saboteur and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, but I’m still waiting to hear about which version of Silent Hill is the one to get (PS2, PSP or Wii?)

    And Playmobil had a few great games back in the day on the PC. It’s cutesy and not as ‘cool’ as Lego, but I really enjoyed the one with the knight.

  3. What I’ll likely spend most, if not all, of my gaming dollars on this month are the sales on Steam near the end of the month. At least, that’s what I’ll be doing if the sales are half as good as last year or the ones last week.
