PS3 Releases: week of March 24, 2007


news you can use: SD vs RAW ’08 will have downloadable content. This is one of those things where as soon as it’s mentioned, you’d realize what a vital idea it is and wonder what took so long. This ought to be a simple way to fix the roster problems which happen every single year.

Dark Sector (gamestats) Another slice/dice game. Everyone’s calling it a Gears of War clone but is impressed by the main characters Glaive weapon – a metallic 3 pronged boomerang variant used to solve puzzles when you’re not killing things. Multiplayer isn’t much and neither is the story, but it seems to be a slightly better game than…

Viking: Battle for Asgurd (gamestats) Really neat looking massive battle scenes – 1UP raves about the hundred of characters on screen at once in otherwise very down review – but they’re only a fragment of the game play and the rest isn’t at that level. The story is actively bad and the combat isn’t very deep. The gore is very detailed, if you’re looking for that.
