Shipping this week: Hell's LEGO hunting edition

We've got five (count 'em, five) new Xbox 360 games this week. Probably the biggest of the bunch is Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, which finally arrives after numerous delays. Aside from Brothers in Arms we have LEGO Batman, which we imagine will be an awful lot like LEGO Indiana Jones which was an awful lot like LEGO Star Wars. We question whether or not the somewhat addictive charm will hold out this time. To round out the week, we've got off-road racing, hacking and slashing, and ... um ... hunting. Consider the fall gaming flood postponed.
  • Baja: Edge of Control
  • Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
  • Warriors Orochi 2
  • Cablela's Dangerous Hunts 2009
  • LEGO Batman

Shipping this week: Rock Band 2 Unleashed edition

The big releases are starting to drip out as the industry steadily ramps up for yet another packed holiday season. This week, the Xbox 360 plays host to some decent titles including the likes of Rock Band 2, Pure, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. On top of those, we've also got Armored Core: For Answer and ... um ... Battle Fantasia. To our disappointment, we have learned that Battle Fantasia is not a fighting game about the Disney movie Fantasia. It's a shame, really, because we were ready to throw down with some tutu-wearing hippos.

Shipping this week: Oh no you didn't edition

Have you been dreaming of an open world game with massive firepower and fully destructible environments without all the pesky legal repercussions in GTAIV? Mercenaries 2 just might be your game. You get to blow things up ... a lot ... with cruise missiles. Let's not forget online co-op either, which means you can blow things up with cruise missiles ... with friends.

As though Mercenaries 2 wasn't enough, we also have all of these:
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise? Infinite Undiscovery? FaceBreaker? Yeah, so apparently "Holiday 2008" is already upon us.

Shipping This Week: Crashing edition

There are two really notable things about the games releasing this week. One, you may recall that Tales of Vesperia was the game that single-handedly caused the Xbox 360 to sell out completely in Japan. Somehow, we doubt the game will have quite the same impact in North America (regardless of its quality). Two, after over two frakking years, Castle Crashers is finally landing on Xbox Live Arcade. Our anticipation around here is palpable. Perhaps you've noticed. Also releasing this week is Tiger Woods 09. We're not sure exactly what's notable aboout that unless, of course, the Jesus shot makes a return.

Shipping this week: Just Crash Time edition

Kids, it is a sad day in "Shipping this week" history. There is precisely one Xbox 360 game shipping this week. It wouldn't be such a big deal if it weren't for the fact that the game releasing ... is Crash Time. You may recall the demo that was released for the game back in May. We wouldn't blame you if you can't though. It was that bad. If you still need convincing, check out our video impressions of the demo above.

But hey, it's not all bad, as we still get the mind-bending Braid on Xbox Live Arcade this week. Thank the heavens for that.

Shipping this week: Time machine edition

When you scan the new 360 releases this week, you may feel a sense of déjà vu. "Unreal Tournament III," you will say, "didn't that come out eight months ago?" Fear not, however, for your eyes do not deceive you. The Xbox 360 version of Unreal Tournament III has finally released, bereft of user created content though it may be. Presenting us with another trip back in time is Civilization Revolution, which has players building their ... civilizations from ancient times all the way into the space age. If you haven't given the demo a try, we suggest you do. It's good fun. Finally, we have Beijing Olympics 2008. We're guessing that one involves a lot of button mashing and stick twirling. You'd best prepare for the calluses now.

Shipping this week: Guitar Hero: Latest Iteration edition

While there are technically two games coming out this week, there's really only one. You see, one of them is the Gears of War re-release (which we thought came out last week). That's all well and good for the folks who have yet to pick up Epic's super gory and very playable shooter. Just remember to watch out for that host shotty. Strangely enough, the new game releasing this week isn't all that new either. It's Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, which is, you guessed it, Guitar Hero with a lot of Aerosmith tracks. Whether or not you regard that as a good thing is entirely up to you. One point in defense of Aerosmith: they did give us Alicia Silverstone.

Shipping this week: OMG Megaton edition

No, it's not a news related OMG Megaton. It's more like a "holy effing crap, look at all these games" kind of megaton. There are ten, ten games hitting the Xbox 360 this week. What's more, a lot of them look decent and, dare we say it, some of them even look good. Just look at all of 'em.
It's enough to give someone googly eyes. Alone in the Dark has our interest piqued (and has thus far fared decently in Europe). Here's hoping it -- and everything else here -- is up to snuff.

Shipping this week: Deep breath edition

Okay, so there aren't any new games headed to the Xbox 360 this week. It's natural to feel emotions of deep sadness or great anger at such news. It's perfectly normal. However, prolonging such feelings can be damaging to the body and soul. As such, we advise all of our readers to take a deep breath. Sure, there aren't any new games this week, but over the last two weeks we've had ten new games. That should be enough to keep anyone busy. At least we have Alone in the Dark next week, right?

Here's hoping it was worth the wait.

Shipping this week: random edition

This week's lineup of new Xbox 360 games just might be the most random in the console's history. Given the caliber of the competition's major release this week, it seems doubly so. Seriously, look at the lineup of games we have this week:
We have stock car racing, boxing with large-haired flair, anime fighting, and a game about dangerous fishing. We ask you, dearest fanboys and girls, which of these games is the highlight this week? Ponder that for a while and see if you can't help us figure it out. We'll be playing Ninja Gaiden II.

Note: Deadliest Catch should be coming out for real this time. It seems it was listed by mistake last month.

Shipping this week: Real Ultimate Power edition

It's finally here kids. Yes, it's the granddaddy of all ninja simulators, Ninja Gaiden. This particular entry in the series is somewhat anachronistically titled Ninja Gaiden II. We can tell you unreservedly (and from experience) that it is glorious in execution. It's also goriest in executions. Eviscerations abound as gamers take on the role of Ryu Hayabusa, the superest of all super ninjas. But wait, what's that? There are more games shipping this week and they don't all suck? Whoa. Imagine our surprise. Behold this week's list:
Which of these will grace your 360's DVD drive?

Shipping this week: deadly fishing edition

With the giant, lumbering shadow of Grand Theft Auto IV slowly receding, publishers are responding in kind, slowly releasing new titles. Testing the water, if you will. It seems appropriate, then, that this week's biggest Xbox 360 release is Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm, a game about (deadly) fishing. There is also one other title to look out for, that being Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. We're trying really hard to drum up some enthusiasm for that one. Actually, who are we kidding? We're not trying at all.

Shipping this week: still GTAIV

It seems that publishers everywhere foresaw the Grand Theft Auto IV effect with great clarity. Apart from the obligatory release of the Iron Man game last week (gotta tie in with the movie release, y'know), everyone is keen to stay away from Rockstar's behemoth. What we're getting at here, lest you haven't figured it out, is that there are no new games on the Xbox 360 this week. Don't feel too bad though. After all, it's not like anyone is done with GTAIV yet anyway. Oh sure, you might have already beaten the game (like Xav), but no one is done with it. Come to think of it, there are games inside of GTAIV. If you haven't played them yet, those are kind of like new releases ....

Shipping this week: something edition

We're going to have to come clean and say we know virtually nothing about NBA Ballers: Chosen One. Since November of last year, we've had an announcement, some screens, and that's about it. It hasn't made a splash on Metacritic just yet with the only review thus far coming from GamePro (the magazine gives it 60% according to Metacritic). Still, previous entries in the series have done fairly well, so here's hoping Chosen One can keep up. Whether basketball is your thing or not, you should know that it's your only choice this week. Maybe something more interesting will show up next week.

Shipping this week: *another tumbleweed* edition

In some ways, the fact that no games are releasing for the Xbox 360 this week is a blessing. No, not for the general game buying public, but for lazy bloggers like us. It saves us the trouble of coming up with a cogent theme or drumming up some reason to be excited by the latest furniture varnishing sim (actually, scratch that, we would be totally up for a furniture varnishing sim). Hell, we even get to reuse the same image. So, um, nothing releasing this week. We are left with but one theory: with the GTAIV release date held in secrecy for so long, other publishers just crossed the month of April off of their calendars as a precaution.
