March Releases

Yay, it’s the monthly releases! The year has started out strong and March continues the streak with a few strong titles interspersed with some games of questionable quality. All in a month of game releases:

Xbox 360 banner

Week of March 1st
Heist
Battlefield: Bad Company 2– I’m watching from the sidelines to see how this games matches up with Modern Warfare 2. I’m planning on sticking with MW2 but I’m always up for a good fight.
MLB 2K10
Lips: Party Classics

Week of March 8th
Final Fantasy XIII– The last main Final Fantasy game I played was FF3 on the SNES. Maybe it’s time to get back in.
Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition– I think I’m going to pick up some of the extra RE5 content sometime down the road, but if you haven’t played RE5 yet, I’d recommend it. It’s rather underrated in my book.

Week of March 15th
Prison Break: The Conspiracy– My mancrush on Michael Scofield is no secret. I am seriously considering picking this game up.
Dragon Age: Origins Awakenings– I thought Dragon Age was to be another Bioware Trilogy? It seems like this would be taking away from time they could be spending on a sequel. Or maybe this is all part of the plan.
Metro 2033
Supreme Commander 2
Resonance of Fate– It’s the month of 360 jRPGs!
MotoGP 09/10– Was this game initially called MotoGP 09 but then got behind schedule? They already had all the box art ready to go so they just added the /10? Sounds reasonable to me.

Week of March 22nd
Clash of the Titans– I thought they made this game already (at least three times) when they called it God of War
Just Cause 2– One of the first games I played on the 360 was Just Cause. It was flawed and at the time it didn’t grab me. Not sure I’m ready to give it another chance.

Week of March 29th
Samurai Shodown Sen
Singularity

Week of March 1st
Spongebob Boating Bash

Week of March 15th
Sushi Go Round
Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon
Calling

Week of March 22nd
Rooms: The Main Building– Strange name for a game.
Red Steel 2

Week of March 29th
Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love
Secret Files: Tunguska

Nintendo DS banner

Week of March 1st

Sonic Classic Collection– The DS is almost five years old. I would have figured we had tapped most of “Classic Collections.” I stand corrected.
MLB 2K10

Week of March 8th
The Daring Game for Girls

Week of March 15th
Pokemon SoulSilver Version– The latest Pokemon sure snuck up on me.
Pokemon HeartGold Version
Let’s Draw!
Spectral Force Genesis

Week of March 22nd
Build-a-Bear Workshop: Welcome to Hugsville– If you would have told me there would be more than one Build-a-Bear game when the first one came out, I would have said you were crazy. I would have been wrong.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
Yard Sale Hidden Treasures: Sunnyville– PLEASE tell me how this game will be fun. Can you win it all by just listing everything on Craig’s list?
Dawn of Heroes– I might buy this game on the strength of the box art alone.

Week of March 29th
Infinite Space
Monster Rancher
Chocolatier– I think this game comes highly recommended from Zack. That’s a solid recommendation in my book.

Comments

  1. I am really shocked at the number of games I’d like to buy or play this Spring. Here we go…

    PC:

    • Metro 2033. I’ve been interested in this since I completed that awesome mod for STALKER that made it good. I mean really good. If you order this games on Steam, you get Red Faction: Guerrilla for free. It’s the only game I’m balking on purchasing. The FREE game may convince me otherwise. Also, the English translation of this book cannot come out soon enough.
    • Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising. No brainer. This was pre-purchased the first day it appeared on Steam. I just wish I could find people that would play co-op (original DoW) or The Last Stand with me.
    • Other notes: Ubisoft games on the PC are numbered. Just sayin’. Idiots. With Command and Conquer 4, I’ll watch the gamer response to it.

    PS3:

    • MLB 10 The Show. I thought the previous game in the series was the best sports sim I’ve ever played. I’d like to jump at this, but will it be much of the same thing? Plus, these games are hard. SUPER HARD. I have a Sony Visa card loaded with points. I may blow some on this.
    • One to watch: God of War III. I’ve played the PSP game and really liked it. However, it’s so easy to get through them, I may Gamefly this title–and play it in 2012 when it becomes available.

    Wii:

    • Red Steel 2. I’ve never played the first, but this game looks to have mastered the Motion Plus swordplay and it looks like Borderlands meets samurai meets the old west.
  2. FFXIII on the PS3 is the main title on my radar this month. Having just finished the original Yakuza a week or two ago, I’m also VERY excited to get Yakuza 3.

    I’m on the fence about God Of War 3. I’ve sworn in the past not to buy another God Of War game at full retail cost because I finish them so fast. I think I’ll cancel my preorder and just rent it for a week and finish it up sometime after I am done with FFXIII.

    I’m also looking forward to SMT: Strange Journey on the DS, though my DS Lite spontaneously got some nasty cracks on the hinges the other day, so I might need a new DS or DSi in the near future.

    I’m holding off on getting Dragon Age: Awakenings for now. I still have a LOT of the main game to work through and from the sounds of things, this is an expansion that takes place after the main storyline is done, so I’ll wait until I’m closer to finishing that bad-boy off. Plus I still haven’t finished off Mass Effect 2 yet and that’s the Bioware game that’s getting played around these parts right now.

  3. I forgot to add Infinite Space to the list of games I’m watching. I’m not going to buy it right away but it has been flitting around on the periphery of my game-sense for a while now and I’m curious about how it turns out.

  4. AH! They finally made Chocolatier on the DS?! Now I need to find out if it is original or a port of the somewhat crummy iPhone version.
