Calendar Man – Week of 5/27

fuse shot 1

Calendar Man is a day late this week on account of two things. One is Memorial Day. The other is my run-in with a utility knife to the tune of 12 stitches in the middle finger of my left hand. Typing has been compromised, to say the least. On the plus side, I get a week’s vacation from finishing my basement. Yay, stitches.

This week has the release of Fuse (PS3, 360), Insomniac’s four person co-op alien weapon game. I played the demo and was a bit worried over the fact that my AI teammates did not know that my gun was a mobile shield platform. They all seemed content to stick behind actual cover and leave me to die. Then again, seeing how I did die so much, maybe they were on to something. I’ll have more thoughts later in the week when my copy arrives. Also out this week is GRID 2 (PS3, 360, PC), a game about cars, not grids. Other releases include the Old Gods expansion for Crusader Kings II, Daedalic’s Night of the Rabbit and other games I can’t tell you about at the moment because I think bees are building a hive in my stitches.

I’ll leave you to your own deal finding due to the aforementioned bees, but don’t worry. My main man Cheapy D has got your back. He always does.

Brandon loves games, which shouldn't be a surprise given where you're reading this. He has written for GameShark, The Escapist and G4, and made them all less relevant as a result.

  1. Gunpoint and The Swapper are the most interesting releases this week, in my book.

    Also The Warriors as part of PS2 Classics for ten bucks.

    Continuing my attempt to buy nothing at full price this year.

    Still playing the same stuff as last time ;).

  2. How in the world can anyone muster any kind of interest in playing Fuse? it looks straight out of 2008 and in a bad way…hasn’t there been enough of these kinds of games to last….FOREVER?

    $9.99 Dark Souls, that’s one of the best values in gaming ever. At that price, I might trade in my physical copy just to free up a slot in the drawer.

    1. It ain’t bad. I certainly wouldn’t pay for it, but as something to dick around with while I work out, it’s fine.

  3. I caught Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno in Pokemon Platinum this weekend. For those of you who are not Brandon, those are the notoriously elusive legendary birds who make an appearance once every other generation. Their tendency to flee whenever they can, unleash a righteous beatdown when they can’t, and heal their wounds on command make them tough to pin down. I thought it was going to be a big hassle but it turned out that a well-trained Crobat was all my team needed to bring them in alive.

    As far as I know, this leaves just two legendary pokemon in the world: Heatran who bothers no one by sticking to the lava flows inside Stark Mountain, and Regigigas who is completely inanimate. If I can just figure out how to provoke them into a fight, my collection of majestic creatures locked in tiny cages will finally be complete!
