It figures that the first Calendar Man after E3 is filled with like a bazillion games. What the hell games? Don’t you know that it’s June and I’m tired? I can’t be bothered to write up all of these games!
This week has a metric ton of movie Transformers games, the return of Alice, a JRPG prequel and finally, at long last, the release of Duke Nukem Forever. Finally, our long national nightmare is over. Now gaming can go back to not caring about Duke any more. Hallelujah.
On to the games!
If you like a little psychosis with your gaming, and honestly, who doesn’t, maybe give Alice: Madness Returns a try. Yay psychosis!
Yet another Wiimote bundled game thingy is out this week, this time with a fancy new Wiimote that has MotionPlus bundled in it. With the Wii sales on decline, it will be interesting to see how Wii Play Motion with Black Wii Remote Plus sells. Oh wait, I forgot. I honestly don’t care.
At one point, there was an Agarest War, and someone made a record of it. Someone also made a record of the war before the war, a War Zero, if you will. They also made games about it. It’s also possible that I have no idea what I’m talking about, however that hasn’t stopped me yet.
Child Of Eden is some funky ass Kinect game. Honestly that’s all I know about it. Funky, ass and Kinect. Go forth and purchase!
The Transformers movie games traditionally haven’t been very good, however now they’re being developed by the people who made War for Cybertron, which may not bode well for some of you. I quite liked War For Cybertron myself. Granted, not enough to pick up a Transformers movie game, but maybe some of these will end up being decent. Dare to dream.

Cubic Ninja is a game for the 3DS in which you tilt a Ninja to victory. You can also use the circle pad if you choose. Sounds exciting!
I think Wipeout is hilarious as it pushes the buttons in my brain that respond to people smashing into giant, inflatable balls and then falling into water. Not sure how well Wipeout In the Zone recreates the show with nothing but an 360 and Kinect, but if you smash into your coffee table while playing it, I’d love to see it.
Duke Nukem Forever is finally out and early reviews say it sucks. Wow. I am shocked. Utterly shocked. I have a feeling Mr. Pitchford will be wrong and this game will be much easier to review than he thinks. I always find it easier to review crappy games, regardless of how long it took to make them.
