New Releases 2/9/2009: F.E.A.R.ful

A week with lots of notable releases to go along with our new look website. A great way to continue to the good momentum that Q1 has had so far. Also, it’s a great way to warm up for the other great releases still to come in February.

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) has had a long road to retail with a proper name. Originally being divided into two separate games (one with the name and one with the characters and setting), legal and economic reasons led to the game being released as a true sequel. The game starts mere moments before the climactic ending of the original title but from the perspective of another team in a city decimated by a large explosion. The demo released on both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network showed a variety of enemies and environments that made the game seem more varied than the original. Fans of the first game will probably be eager to pick this one up.

Other notable releases this week:

Sonics Ultimate Genesis Collection (Xbox 360, PS3)
X-Blades (Xbox 360)
House of the Dead: Overkill (Wii)
NASCAR Kart Racing (Wii)
LocoRoco 2 (PSP)
Flower (PSN)
