    A few nice looking releases next week, kinda varied too. Its gonna get even better when September arrives as there are well over 50 titles due in the US & Europe alone!


    August 28th

    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2008 US Genre: Golf-me-do

    Another year another update, don't think I've played any since the horrid 2005 DS game.

    Also out are Professional Fisherman's Tour: Northern Hemisphere which I', sure came out a while back, Pet Alien which is OK at best (though some people love it for some reason) and Garfields Nightmare which was ok. If you like Shin'en games then you'll like them, if you find Shin'em to be average then you might not.

    August 30th


    One Piece: Gear Spirit Japan Genre: Fight-me-do

    A Smash Bros style fighter featuring the One Piece characters.

    Oni Zero: Sengoku Ransei Hyakkaryouran Japan Genre: RPG-me-do

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Simple 1500 Series Vol. 21: The Fuhyou: Bitai de Shutsugeki! Senjou no Inutachi
    Japan Genre: Action-me-do

    Looks like a Brothers in Arms sort of game to me.

    Summon Night Twin Age: Seireitachi no Kyoumei Japan Genre: RPG-me-do

    The franchise returns on DS. Shame Swordcraft Story 3 never made it over here.

    Also out are:
    Tsunde Tsumi Kiss Link
    Kazoku Minna de Nippon Shiatsu Shikai Kanshuu: RakuRaku Shiatsu Navi Link
    DS Sokudoku Junior Link


    August 31st

    Genius DS - Equal Cards Europe Genre: Math-me-do

    Released in Japan as "Sansuu Puzzle Game: Equal Card DS" and out next month in the US as "Math Play". This is yet another "hey isn't doing maths fun?" sort of games with some kinda of cat probably breaking your balls if you mess up.

    Undercover: Dual Motives
    Europe Genre: Adventure-me-do

    Where the hell did this come from? This looks like a very pretty graphic adventure title like the ones we had in the early 90's on the Amiga & 486 PCs. PC adventure gamers may already know the other game in the series on the PC called “Undercover: Operation Wintersun”. Anyway set in the 1930's just before WWII is about to begin, players take over the control over Russell, a physicist suspected to have betrayed secrets, who has only 24 hours to prove his innocence & also Audrey, the secretary of the research compound’s director. Together, they have to prove Russell’s innocence. Most of the time though, the player will control the two playable characters – Russell and Secretary Audrey – switching between them at will with the press of a button. In order to solve the game’s puzzles he will have to apply their respective abilities and coordinate their actions. Could be a sleeper hit, but I kinda expect the game to miss the release date.

    EDIT: Its actually just been dumped an hour ago!

    Worms: Open Warfare 2 Europe Genre: Blow the other worms up-me-do

    After the US release date slipped till the 4th September, I'm hoping that this will make the date over here. Looking to improve on everything the shoddy DS title did, the developers are hoping to make an excellent DS Worms game. Lots of weapons, modes, extras and WFC modes plus apparently some very good single player missions. The developers are pushing this as a proper new Worms game rather than a spin-off. Lets hope it delivers!

    Also out are:
    Dragon Ball Z: Goku Densetsu (US title Dragon Ball Z: Harukanaru Densetsu)
    Impossible Mission, which I quite liked as it played the same as the original, had the same levels and also had some brand new ones too!
    Dynasty Warriors: Fighters Battle DS, which was crap and had a filesize that was stupid.
    Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08


    Looks like a decent week but I'm still busy with GS3 and Run Factory. As usual dates change and don't always expect a game to get dumped.

    Undercover: Dual Motives seems to be decent. Only played about 20 minutes of it (I'll need to play a lot more to know how good it'll be) and so far its very like the Amiga/PC point and click adventures we use to play.

    Its nice to have a game like this on the DS at last, and I know some others are coming.

    Can't wait to try it, the lack of point and click adventures games on the DS is astonishing.

    Great work as usual hadrian, welcome back [​IMG]

    DO. WANT. WORMS.

    Can't wait for that one. From what I've been reading it sounds excellent and it has Wi-Fi multiplayer! Forget about the absolutely shocking first Worms Open Warfare! This one should be aces.

    Thanks! This is a nice week indeed. I wanna try Tiger Woods, One Piece, the Brothers in Arms-like game and Undercover: Dual Motives.

    Of course, the best game this week is Worms: Open Warfare 2 [​IMG] But as you are, I'm still busy with GS3 [​IMG]

    Just lacked in features really. No online mode, lousy sound, controls felt awkward at times, crap AI thats worse than the first Worms on the Amiga, not as many weapons as usual, it wasn't as customable as previous games and various other faults.

    Ok I compared it to the likes of Worms Armageddon and World Party but I think that is fair. PSP version was a bit better better though.

    Hm... what I am really interested in is Summon Night, but that Tsunde Tsumi Kiss also looks... amusing.

    Can't wait to try the new One Piece Game. Didn't know it even existed. The dual motive game looks good. Anyone knows what the game is actually about? I don't really know what is meant by a "point and click" adventure game.
