Calendar Man – Week of 5/20

resident evil revelations shot 1

Nothing too exciting this week for me, although I am curious about the new Xbox reveal thingy. I know that’s not a game, but given the games that are out this week, it’s the most interesting video game related item on the docket.

Let’s see, the 3DS gets yet another remake with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Resident Evil: Revelations (PS3, 360, Wii U) tells you what happens between RE4 and RE5, as if the lack of that knowledge was keeping you up at night and Fast & Furious: Showdown (PS3, 3DS, 360, Wii U, PC) ushers in another summer of movie tie-in games. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing hits the PC and I have the floppy, E3 hat to prove it, Fallen Enchantress gets the Legendary Heroes expansion and LEGO Batman 2 and Sniper Elite V2 hit the Wii U. Good times.

4 thoughts to “Calendar Man – Week of 5/20”

  1. I never played Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Wii, and I do enjoy playing games on portable devices more than consoles / PCs so I might break down and finally get a 3DS…though I will likely persevere and wait for a better color XL to finally come out.

  2. Want both DK Returns and RE from this week, but can wait for price drops for the latter and trade fodder for the former, since I already played both.

    Conversely, both are excellent games.

    I am in the middle of a short game fest at the moment; I am playing the quite fun and creepy Starship Damrey on 3DS, plus picking away at Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.

    And for some reason I am replaying all the old Phoenix Wright games, just moving through the second as we speak.

  3. I picked up Metro: Last Light last week. I’ve only put a few hours into it so far, but it seems promising. Since I don’t particularly like first person shooters, I definitely appreciate the fact that stealth is the preferred method for dealing with people. We’ll see what I think of it as I continue playing, but I’m looking forward to everyone’s thoughts.

    1. I devoured Metro: Last Light and it got better and better. Enjoyed it infinitely more then Bioshock.

      I seldom play first person shooty-shooty games but it hearkened back to something like Thief more then your Call of all ‘dose Duties.

      It did make me contemplate why we don’t see more out of Mother Russia. I loved Stalker, very much enjoyed Night and Day Watch and I feel its due a liberating artistic gaming boom.
