Weekly Round-Up: Where’s the Duke?

The news of the week was interesting. A delay that came as no surprise happened, and a first person shooter with mixed reviews and iffy expectations seemed to do quite well. Truthcast #34 is also up so all you lucky listeners can have an eargasm. We only have one review this week, but it’s the most in depth one you will find on Yakuza 4.

The truth:

Duke Nukem Forever delayed. Forever! No, just kidding; it’s still coming.

Splinter Cell Trilogy also delayed. Can’t say I even knew this existed, so I’m not too broken up about it.

Homefront sells one million units in its first week. I’m interested in this game only because it vaguely reminds me of Freedom Fighters, the 2003 third-person shooter with an epic story about retaking America from foreign invaders. Please make a sequel on an HD system. Heck, I’ll even take a 3DS sequel.

Frolicking puppies in a 3D music video for your Nintendo 3DS. All of it free in a system update.

EA games losing manuals. I like game manuals when a developer takes time to do some fun things with them, add story bits or pump in some nifty artwork.

The Pokemon trading card game goes virtual. I scream like a girl. Seriously, this is epic.

The review:

Yakuza 4

“Yakuza 2 still remains my pick for best in the series, but by no means is Yakuza 4 the worst. SEGA addressed the problems I had with Yakuza 3 and brought the game back to its roots with a refocused story. Each character is interesting and provides a different take on the dark, twisting story. The game still suffers from feeling far too old to be on the PlayStation 3, but the brutal combat and impressive visual design keeps things from getting stale. All in all, Yakuza 4 is a fun game deserving of attention from fans of crime dramas and slamming faces into pavement.”

That’s it for this week. Keep on gaming.
