Play More Games: “Necromorphs on Roller Skates”

Snow days are a mixed blessing: as a kid, it was a delight to find myself with an unexpected free day in the middle of the school week.  Unfortunately, those days usually had to be made up in the sticky, sweaty days of late June.

If you’re at a place in life where you still get to enjoy snow days, hopefully one of this week’s new releases will help keep you warm.  At least until your dad makes you go out and shovel the driveway.

Here are a few of the highlights:

Dead Space 2 is out today!  The sequel to quite possibly my favorite horror game of all time promises more creepy, desolate, blood-dripping-down-the-walls fun and a lead character that’s slowly losing his mind.  Yay!

– A game developer has finally caught on to the roller derby phenomenon: Jam City Rollergirls is available for download on the Wii this week.

For a full list of this week’s new games, check out Tech-Gaming.com or Amazon.com.

What new releases are crawling out of the ducts and eating your brain this week?

    Got both Dead Space 2 and LittleBigPlanet 2, and will be alternating between the two games throughout the next couple of weeks. Starting playing DS2 tonight, and I’m having a blast! 🙂

  • I have a friend who does roller derby (and owns a Wii), so I mentioned that game’s existence to her. I’m hoping to buys it, just so I can hear how terrible it is.

    • I have a bunch of co-workers who do derby (which is partly why I included it in the post) and they’re actually having a good time with the game.
